Announcing the Opening of Our New Jersey Office

February 1, 2014

The Partners of WSH&B are pleased to announce the opening of our New Jersey Office located in Jersey City. This office will be managed by Partner, James Tyrie. Jim focuses on the defense of premises security, toxic tort, construction and general liability matters.

A significant component of Jim’s practice involves the representation of municipalities and governmental entities in premises liability, security and related matters. He previously managed a litigation defense team for one of the largest public housing authorities in the United States. He is on a rapid response team for construction site accident claims under New York Labor Law, assisting his clients in the initial investigation of the accidents and handling the cases through litigation. He also represents clients in lead poisoning and asbestos exposure cases, premises security lawsuits arising from shootings, assaults and security guard issues, and other personal injury matters.

Striving for early resolution of claims whenever possible, Jim is often able to obtain a favorable outcome for his clients without the need for extensive litigation expenses. He has achieved a track record of success at trial, having taken 25 cases to verdict in both state and federal courts and obtained numerous defense verdicts.

WSH&B’s New Jersey office is located at:

2500 Plaza 5, 25th Floor
Jersey City, New Jersey 07311
Main: (201) 484-7236

With this office, WSH&B now has 15 offices in 8 states, and can better serve clients in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut tri-state area.
