Accessible

Our firm seeks to accommodate our clients. With an office in Cumberland County in Bridgeton and an office in Salem County in Woodstown, we are able to provide legal services to our clients over a broad geographical spectrum. We know that you are busy. In order to accommodate your schedule, we will extend our hours by appointment. From your first visit to your last, we will work hard to obtain the best resolution possible, in or out of the courtroom.

Often people do not consult an attorney for fear that doing so would be too expensive. At Chance & McCann the first consultation is always FREE. In many cases our fees are contingent upon us winning your case. In those cases, the fee is paid as a percentage of the money that you recover.

Education

Our attorneys regularly attend classes and seminars provided by various continuing legal education providers including but not limited to the Institute of Continuing Legal Education, the New Jersey State Bar Association, and the Cumberland County Bar Association. Our staff utilizes Westlaw, a state of the art, online, legal search engine to research legal issues. Our paralegals also attend seminars in order to provide better service to our clients.
