Being a life-long resident of Ocean County, when it came time to search for employment in the legal arena, Ms. Cyphers knew she wanted to stay in the area so that she could provide legal advice to the local residents and business owners who have helped her over the years and made Ocean County a wonderful place to reside. Colleen has been with the firm since her entry into private practice, after serving as a Law Clerk to the Honorable William H. Huber in the General Equity Part, Ocean County Superior Court. She is proud to be a part of a dedicated team of lawyers with diverse experience in all aspects of the law.
As part of the LevinCyphers team of lawyers, she has concentrated her practice in the areas of real estate, both residential and commercial, collection for local and international business, corporate matters, worker’s compensation matters as well as commercial transactions and litigation. As a transactional-oriented attorney, particularly in real estate matters, Colleen believes in having an open-line of communication with the client, as well as the real estate agents, to make the home-buying experience a pleasant and memorable one. She has handled the sale and purchase of small, local businesses to multi-million dollar companies, including the sale of a long-term care and assisted living facility and several medical practices.
Ms. Cyphers also assists individuals in forming corporations and other business entities, drafting employment agreements, shareholder agreements, leases, employee manuals, and providing advice and guidance if the corporate and commercial clients find themselves involved in litigation. She provides the commercial litigators of the firm with support in preparing pleadings and discovery, motion practice, and pre-trial preparation. Colleen’s experience enables her to draft effective, concise and instructive agreements, pleadings and briefs for review by both clients and the Courts.
“I am pleased to be a partner in a talented firm such as this; a firm comprised of lawyers with vast years of experience in such diversified areas of the law. The services we provide to our clients are second to none and unmatched in the Ocean County area. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to provide legal advice and guidance to the residents and business owners in the surrounding area.”
