The Special Civil Part has jurisdiction up to $15,000.00 where most retail collection matters are filed. He was also a member of the New Jersey State Bar Committee for the Special Civil Part.

To serve its highly specialized practice, Pressler and Pressler, LLP is online with three (3) major credit bureaus. All real estate, lots, blocks, addresses, and assessments are online and computer checked with new claims. We have a full-time programming and networking staff to assist our various clients who are computer linked to allow immediate transfer of new claims, constant online availability of claim status, payments, etc.
Pressler and Pressler, LLP represents national credit card companies throughout the States of New Jersey and New York.
Our office was chosen as the beta site by the New Jersey Supreme Court to test and implement programs to computerize the communications and filings between litigants and the Courts. As a result, we now transmit all Complaints, Motions, and Executions electronically to the Court’s computers. This has improved the response time in obtaining docket numbers, service dates, and other information from the Court.
Pressler and Pressler, LLP is very active in maintaining, supporting and opposing new legislation which affects the collection industry. We were responsible for rolling back the costs for docketing New Jersey judgments from a fee of $25.00 to a more reasonable fee of $5.00 [now $10.00].
With over 300 employees and 19 attorneys, Pressler and Pressler, LLP provides a total retail collection environment including skip-tracing and asset location.
