Mr. Applegate is a California native who moved to the South Jersey area to attend
law school. He graduated from Rutgers - Camden School of Law with honors in 2001
and spent the first eight years of his legal career as a litigation associate in
the New Jersey office of a large firm based in Philadelphia. There, he represented
small and large businesses and handled a variety of complex commercial and corporate
matters, including class actions, securities, shareholder and partnership disputes,
employment, consumer fraud, RICO, insurance coverage, civil rights, UCC, privacy,
and information security breach issues.
He then took that knowledge and experience and opened his own law practice, so that
he could continue to provide the same quality legal advice and work, but with the
flexibility, rate structure, and attention of a small firm.
Relationships matter. In that regard, Mr. Applegate takes the time to learn his
clients’ backgrounds, needs, and goals in order to build a long-term relationship
so that he can anticipate and provide pragmatic legal advice suited to the circumstances
of his clients’ situation.
