About Capehart Scatchard

Capehart & Scatchard, P.A. was founded in 1876 and is one of the oldest law firms in New Jersey. The Firm is a full-service, diversified law firm of more than 90 attorneys practicing in seven offices throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and Delaware, in more than a dozen major areas of law. We serve large and small businesses and, often, those who own or manage them: public entities, non-profit organizations and academic institutions, governments and individuals.

Our Firm’s commitment of providing clients with superior legal services in a prompt manner and at a reasonable cost is based on a three-tier approach: first, a sound technical knowledge of the law; second, a practical understanding of how to work efficiently and with a “can do” attitude and not create obstacles; and third, the interpersonal skills needed to communicate well and frequently with clients. That commitment is still firmly in place today.

In an era when clients must justify every expense, we pursue cost-efficiency without sacrificing positive legal results. Capehart Scatchard has a long-standing commitment to staffing client matters according to the task at hand, utilizing shareholders and associates where appropriate to deliver the best work product and service in an effective and cost-efficient manner. We avoid needless paperwork and procedures, and concentrate instead on charting smart courses of action, either to avoid lawsuits or lay a solid case foundation.
