Schiller, Pittenger & Galvin, P.C. Attorneys at Law
Experienced Union County, NJ Attorneys Servicing Clients in New Jersey and Abroad
What started out in 2000 as a two-person firm primarily representing New Jersey auto dealers has grown into a firm with more than a dozen attorneys that service a diverse client base. When Ted Schiller and Perry Pittenger joined forces, each had extensive experience in New Jersey auto dealer law, both having served as general counsel to a large New Jersey auto dealer. In 2016, Ted and Perry welcomed the firm’s third partner, Kevin Galvin. Today, the firm’s attorneys, many of whom joined in the last two decades with extensive experience in various fields, represent clients in the following areas:
