The law offices of O'Halloran & Vitale

For over 25 years, the Bayonne-based law firm has counseled and represented individuals, families, and varied business entities in a wide range of legal and business matters.

We provide counsel to clients who require legal advice and representation in matters relating to the drafting of Last Wills and Testaments, including the drafting of Trusts (Living and Testamentary), Durable Powers of Attorney, and Advanced Medical Directives. In connection with our role as advisors, we provide assistance in the areas of Estate Planning, including advice regarding Federal and State Tax Regulations relative to individuals’ assets and long-term goals; Estate Administration; and, when necessary, Chancery Proceedings involving such matters as Guardianship, Conservatorship, and Will Contests.

We represent both inexperienced first-time home buyers, as well as sophisticated real estate investors with diverse portfolios of residential and mixed-use properties. In fact, over the past 25 years, our firm has closed thousands of residential and commercial real estate transactions involving sales, acquisitions, and refinances throughout the State of New Jersey. During these transactions, we simultaneously walk our clients through the contract formation and review period, and then through all aspects of the lending and closing procedures. We also represent individuals and legal entities in the drafting and analysis of commercial and residential lease agreements.

As part of our real estate practice, we have drafted Master Deeds and Bylaws for the conversion of multi-unit residential properties and mixed-use buildings to condominium regimes, and for new construction projects requiring State approval for more than 10 units. Furthermore, we have appeared on behalf of individuals and corporate applicants seeking approvals for variances before Municipal Planning and Zoning Boards.

In addition, we represent individuals and groups in all areas of business law, including, but not limited to, the formation of business entities such as corporations, limited liability companies, general partnerships, and limited partnerships. For these various individuals and groups, we draft shareholder agreements and bylaws, operating agreements, partnership agreements, limited partnership agreements, asset sale agreements, and assignment and assumption agreements.

Amongst our many clients, we are privileged to include a major independent New Jersey retail gasoline corporation for which we have acted as outside counsel in every area of its business, from site acquisition and/or lease to complex financial and corporate restructuring, for over 20 years. In addition, for the last seven years, our firm has served as bank review attorneys for the closing of New Jersey commercial loans for a prominent regional bank.
