The Law Office of Wendy M. Crowther

We are a full-service Law Firm offering expertise in litigation, real estate, and estate planning. Our office proudly operates on First Ave in beautiful Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey.
Everything we do is collaborative.
We listen intently and communicate our best recommendation for a strategy to best accomplish your goals. We use diplomacy where possible and fight when required. We never take the easy way out and always advocate for your best interests.
When you hire a lawyer, we understand that you expect
trust, clear communication, and results.
We handle a wide range of litigation matters. We represent you, our client, throughout the entire litigation process, including pretrial hearings and depositions, arbitration or mediation, and court trials. We will keep you informed every step of the way.
Our litigation areas of expertise include, but are not limited to,
Real Estate Litigation
Insurance Coverage Disputes
Buying or selling real estate is an important transaction in anyone’s life. A real estate transaction can be straightforward or incredibly complex, and you need an experienced lawyer and real estate team by your side to advocate for you.
We handle all manners of real estate purchases – residential purchases and sales, as well as business purchases of commercial property. In addition, we are “go-to” counsel for our real estate colleagues in those unfortunate instances where the deal unravels, escrows are held, and the parties cannot come to an agreement without litigation.
Our real estate expertise also includes boundary disputes, ownership disputes, title/survey actions, and easement and adverse possession claims.
Estate Planning and Probate Actions
We understand that thinking about the end of life can be uncomfortable for people. But there is nothing worse than being unprepared for the inevitable and leaving your loved ones to guess or, worse yet, to argue about your true intentions. At the Law Office of Wendy Crowther, we handle your Estate Planning with great care, compassion, humor, and attention to detail. We raise important questions in a clear and understandable way and provide a clear picture of what is needed to prepare end-of-life documents that take care of your loved ones. Our clients always comment that the process is much easier than they think it will be!

Without hesitation I recommend her often to friends, family and colleagues." ~ Erik K.
