Mr. Magee prevails in Appellate Division on behalf of Township and Construction Official


In Campana v. Twp. of Long Beach Land Use Board, 2019 WL 3405129 (N.J. Super. App. Div. July 29, 2019), Mr. Magee successfully argued that summary judgment was properly granted by the Law Division in favor of the Township of Long Beach and the Construction Official in a case involving spite fence allegations and issues relating to the Township Code.  


Mr. Magee prevails in Appellate Division on behalf of business client after years of litigation in business dispute

In Delray Holding, LLC v. Sofia Design and Development at South Brunswick, LLC, 439 N.J. Super. 502 (App. Div. 2015), Mr. Magee successfully put an end to years of claims against his clients who were referred to him by the attorneys who handled the underlying litigation.  In the published decision, the Appellate Division agreed that despite the difficult factual record, summary judgment was proper.


Mr. Magee Secures Award of additional $3.54 Million to Township of Long Beach and $336,000 to Borough of Ship Bottom on

Superstorm-Sandy Claims

​After Superstorm Sandy caused catastrophic damage to Long Beach and Ship Bottom on LBI, their insurance company, Zurich American, denied certain coverage and damages.  In the case of Long Beach, millions in coverage were denied and Zurich took the position that over $3 million in damages to the Holgate sewer system pre-existed the storm.  In the case of Ship Bottom, property damage and business income claims were denied. Mr. Magee was retained by both municipalities to fight those denials and Long Beach and Ship Bottom were awarded the insurance coverage to which they were entitled. The cases had added significance, owing to the millions in related-FEMA coverage that also hung in the balance.  The awards were covered by the Star Ledger, the Press of Atlantic City, and The Sandpaper.  

Mr. Magee prevails in Appellate Division on behalf of family law client seeking discovery in support of post-judgment motion

In Zuba v. Zuba, 2015 WL 1636167 (N.J. Super. App. Div. April 14, 2015), Mr. Magee successfully argued that the trial judge committed reversible error when she failed to grant his client post-judgment discovery on the basis of allegations and evidence that the ex-husband fraudulently concealed marital assets.
