Resume

Jeffrey S. Wilson, Esq.

A New Jersey native, Jeff Wilson has lived and worked in the state his entire life. He was born and raised in Teaneck and attended college in Hoboken, where he obtained his Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology. He worked for several years in the construction industry as a Construction Manager, Site Superintendent and Estimator, all in the field of commercial construction. This early hands-on experience working in the field, coordinating construction projects, and gaining knowledge of the complexities of commercial construction provided Jeff with a unique understanding of the problems contractors face.

Following his graduation from New York Law School in 1984, Jeff served as a law clerk for the Honorable David S. Cramp in the New Jersey Superior Court (Morris County). Upon completing his judicial clerkship, Jeff worked for Peckar & Abramson, Attorneys at Law, in Hackensack, NJ, specializing in construction litigation, before opening his own law firm.

For the past 25 years, the focus of Jeff's law practice has been representing General Contractors and Subcontractors in bid protests and construction disputes, from a small collection matter to a multi-million dollar lawsuit. The size of the claim doesn’t matter; each of Jeff's clients gets his personal attention, making himself available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week when necessary. Jeffrey Wilson, Attorney at Law knows that sometimes, when a contractor enters "crisis mode," immediate attention is required.



Testimonials


"Jeff has represented The Bennett Company for over 20 years, not only for construction-related issues, but for all our legal matters. Jeff is trustworthy and attentive. He treats each case as if he was the client that he is representing. His track record with us has been overwhelmingly successful. Quite often we are awarded a contract and another bidder contests the award. Not once has any contract awarded to us been overturned. The main reason for that is Jeff Wilson. Jeff will also advise us properly when we want to contest awards that we feel should have been awarded to us. He objectively analyzes all the information and then advises. He quite often will advise us not to contest an award. In other words he is not looking to fight every award but only the ones with true merit. It is this candidness and objective approach that makes him a great attorney. He truly is looking after our best interests. I have recommended Jeff to family and friends in the past and will continue to do so."

"I would like to take a second and extend my gratitude for all the work you have done in efforts to collect on my many delinquent accounts. I appreciate your responsiveness and highly value the relationship we have built over the years. Pursuing money is always an extremely difficult task in the construction industry.

When someone asks if they can use our attorney after you have taken legal action against them, this tells me that you’re doing an excellent job. That is a testament to your professionalism and efficiency. Many times I have said that your bill is one I don’t mind paying.
