LAW FIRM MISSION STATEMENT: To remain small enough to maintain a personal relationship with all clients, but offer the same professional services of larger firms. We care for and respect our clients, and want them to feel comfortable with all of our attorneys and support staff. Our partners are directly involved in every case. One of our partners is always in the office during business hours to handle emergencies. We promptly respond to all phone calls.
We pride ourselves in honest dedicated service. We try to answer legal questions in simple terms and try to schedule appointments at mutually convenient times. We will make home and hospital visits for clients with disabilities that make it difficult to come to our office. We also meet with clients in the evenings and on weekends.
We provide our clients with a broad variety of legal services and when necessary work closely with many other law firms and lawyers experienced in handling criminal law, bankruptcy, social security cases and immigration matters. Our lawyers are admitted to practice law in New Jersey and New York, and we work with lawyers in various other States to meet the needs of our clients.
Our staff speaks Spanish and Portuguese and we welcome Spanish and Portuguese speaking clients.
HISTORY OF THE FIRM: Martin L. Mintz started Mintz & Geftic in 1990 succeeding his predecessor law firm of Franz & Mintz which handled a wide variety of work related accident cases and negligence cases since 1978. With the firm’s rapid growth in clients, Stanley L. Geftic, partnered with Martin Mintz in founding the firm. From New Jersey High School football rivals (Stanley, a linebacker and guard from Weequahic High School and Martin, a linebacker and guard from Hillside High School) to fraternity brothers at Rutgers College, Stanley and Martin teamed up to fight for the seriously injured victims of negligence, motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, product defects, and other types of personal injuries.
Mintz & Geftic has completely modern facilities and equipment, but has always maintained the same important philosophy that the client is the firm’s most important asset. The firm formed a close association with other experienced lawyers and law firms to broaden the legal services available to our clients. Mintz & Geftic is small, but its services are BIG. We have an experienced staff, which has been with the firm since it was started. Our staff is loyal to the firm and dedicated to serving our clients.
In 2015, Bryan H. Mintz joined the firm as a partner bringing his experience in business litigation and class actions to firm. This also led to the expansion of Mintz & Geftic into New York City. Today, Mintz & Geftic offers its experience and expertise in fighting for its clients in New Jersey and New York.
