Since 1929, our labor union & civil service employee lawyers have worked hard to build a track record of honest, smart, responsive and responsible legal representation. We have earned the respect of courts, judges, regulatory authorities, and other labor lawyers throughout New Jersey.

More important, our lawyers have earned the respect of our clients. In fact, 4 out of 5 clients find us through satisfied friends, relatives, reputation, co-workers, and other New Jersey labor union & civil service attorneys or have retained the law firm on other legal matters.

Since 1929, the New Jersey law firm of Pellettieri, Rabstein & Altman has stood for New Jersey union rights, patient rights, spousal rights, environmental rights, civil rights, consumer, and injured rights.

Our lawyers thoroughly understand New Jersey labor & civil service employment law, even for the most legally and factually complex cases with multiple layers of relationships, extensively detailed contracts, and rare or conflicting legal issues. Our Labor & Employment Department chairman also serves as an adjunct professor at the Rutgers University Institute for Labor & Management Relations.

We are best known for resolving labor and civil service employment disputes. Our lawyers get the best possible outcome for our clients, preferably through negotiation but, when necessary, through litigation.

However the best lawyers at litigating agreements are usually the best lawyers at writing them too.

Going to court is hardball. If you want results, then be well represented.
