Who I Am


In college I had two strong interests, law and finance. I chose law for my career and began practicing in 1991. I was first a law clerk for a superior court judge in New Jersey and then worked as an associate with a firm where I worked with some excellent attorneys and obtained invaluable experience as a litigator. I opened my law office in my hometown of Kearny, New Jersey in 1995. Initially my firm was a general practice firm but over time my focus became the areas of Bankruptcy, Real Estate Transactions, Wills, Estate Planning and Probate. Over the years I studied and also obtained the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation.

Each legal matter tends to be unique to itself. When I meet with a prospective client, I work with them, assess their situation, discuss goals and next steps and work with the client to help them reach the best solution for their situation. Regardless of the solution, each step is carefully considered.

So take the first step, get educated on your options and then make your decision.

Sincerely wishing you the best,

Anthony J. Vignier
