General Civil Litigation


There are many kinds of civil litigation that are heard in our courts, and William H. Michelson handles quite a few of them.  He is a Certified Civil Trial Attorney, so designated by the Supreme Court of New Jersey – a title and status that fewer than 2% of New Jersey’s lawyers ever achieve.

He has been selected as a member of Super Lawyers of New Jersey for many years, an even more select group, in the “Professional Liability – Plaintiff” section.  Super Lawyers Magazine is a product of Thomson Reuters, the well-known news and publishing company.  You don’t apply for this honor – someone nominates you for it.

Among the fields of law in which Mr. Michelson has extensive experience are:

  • Legal Malpractice
  • Ethics and Licensing Matters in All the Licensed Professions
  • Real Estate Law
  • Land Use Law
  • Business Law
  • Contract Law
  • Insurance Law
  • Political and Election Law
  • Constitutional and Governmental Law
  • Civil Rights Law

Mr. Michelson has litigated over 50 appeals, involving many different topics.  He also handles cases in a Mediation or Arbitration setting.  He frequently works together with other attorneys who practice in these fields, to help with their cases. He has lectured on various subjects at seminars.

His track record, both in litigating and in settling cases, reflects the fact that he has 38 years of quality experience as an attorney, as well as a solid background in one of the nation’s premier public law schools, the University of Iowa College of Law.

He reviews potential cases in all these areas, and then decides whether to accept them, or sometimes to refer them to other attorneys.  In order to make this a convenient process for prospective clients, Mr. Michelson offers them a free half-hour of his time, either on the telephone, or by e-mail, with no obligation.
