I am attempting to find a defamation attorney in southern NJ

Customer Question

I am attempting to find a defamation attorney in southern NJ who will take a case on a contingency basis involving my previous landlord
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state you're in?
Customer: NJ
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: He ism suing me (and my company) for past rent after an eviction. I prepared answers to this complaint along with a counter suit for defamation but the court rejected my answers and said that because my company is named, it must be represented by an attorney
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Thank you for your question.
I am afraid that state law forbids any expert on this site from actually representing you or any other customer on the site. If you need local counsel, please use the same sites used by other attorneys, http://www.hg.org or http://www.lexmundi.com
All corporate entities must be represented by attorneys and I am afraid not many take on these cases on a contingency basis, so you will need to hurry and hire an attorney to get your pleadings filed in time and avoid a default judgment against you.
