ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – March 14, 2014 – The 2014 New Jersey Super Lawyers list has a familiar name-Russell L. Lichtenstein, Esq. of the Cooper Levenson law firm.

“Russell’s persuasive, strategic planning and negotiating skills help bring disputes to swift resolution,” said Lloyd D. Levenson, CEO of Cooper Levenson. “When matters cannot be resolved, his strong investigative, analytical and courtroom skills make him one of the most successful and sought-after litigators in the area. These attributes have earned him the Super Lawyer honor. We applaud the tremendous talent and skill that helped earn him this designation for ten consecutive years. It is a remarkable achievement.”
