Experience. Knowledge. Tenacity. Personal Attention.
In the practice of law, there is no substitute for experience, knowledge, tenacity, and personal attention. As a former Assistant Prosecutor for Baltimore City, Appellate Attorney for the State of Maryland, Judicial Clerk to the Presiding Judge of the New Jersey Appellate Division, and private attorney for businesses, healthcare providers, individuals, unions, and governments, Mr. Magee has earned and demonstrated those traits. Indeed, Mr. Magee has successfully conducted hundreds of appeals, trials, hearings, mediations, arbitrations, negotiations, and transactions.
Ultimately, Mr. Magee believes you should have the attorney you hired as the one who actually represents you, one who has negotiated and litigated contracts, prepared and litigated estates, conducted appeals, represented a wide range of clients in many practice areas, as well as prosecuted and defended the accused. Accordingly, at Tennant Magee Law, you will receive the one-on-one, personal attention provided by a small firm, with the depth of experience and knowledge provided by a big one.

Mr. Magee Secures Award of additional $3.54 Million to Township of Long Beach and $336,000 to Borough of Ship Bottom on
After Superstorm Sandy caused catastrophic damage to Long Beach and Ship Bottom on LBI, their insurance company, Zurich American, denied certain coverage and claimed 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, after the final hearing, Long Beach and Ship Bottom were awarded the insurance coverage to which they were contractually 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.
