Louis M. Flora

Louis M. Flora, Esq. is of counsel to the firm. He is our resident “jack-of-all-trades” and his experience in all things increases the firm’s depth and versatility. Truly an asset, he brings with him decades of experience representing local and county government, boards of education and local agencies in general and special matters including negotiation of labor contracts, employee discipline, condemnation of property for redevelopment and general litigation matters. Mr. Flora is also a skilled litigator and regularly handles general and complex litigation for both public and private sector clients. Complimenting his skill in the courtroom as an advocate, Mr. Flora is a skilled mediator and arbitrator who successfully helped many parties settle a variety of matters. From complex commercial real estate landlord-tenant disputes to civil rights cases, Mr. Flora has seen it, studied it and helped resolve it. His experience as a mediator and arbitrator plays very well into his role as an advocate as he understands that resolving a case oftentimes depends on how it is presented. Rounding out his practice, he also handles real estate and land use matters, including commercial/residential sales and purchases, leases, development/land use boards, condemnation and redevelopment.

Mr. Flora’s knowledge, experience, wisdom and pragmatic outlook provide a great sounding board to the other lawyers in the firm and we are better because of what he brings to the table and his constant reminder that all lawyers must continue to be students of their craft.

Mr. Flora earned his Bachelor of Science from Montclair State University, his Masters in Public Administration from New York University and his Juris Doctor from Seton Hall University. He is admitted to both the New Jersey Bar and the Federal District Court for the District of New Jersey and has been certified as a mediator by the New Jersey Superior Court.
