About Us

The Law Offices of Robert S. Dowd, Jr. LLC is a  litigation firm that concentrates on commercial litigationconstruction law and employment law.  Each of our five attorneys brings decades of legal experience to bear to serve the needs of the firm's clients.

We are always prepared to try a case to verdict. Our substantial trial experience informs us, however, that litigation can be an inefficient and costly way of resolving a dispute, with an uncertain outcome. Accordingly, the firm is committed to prosecuting litigation in a strategic manner that will drive a favorable resolution through negotiation. If negotiations are not realistic or are unsuccessful, we will not hesitate to try the case.


Robert S. Dowd, Jr. is a New Jersey licensed attorney who has been litigating and trying commercial, construction and employment cases for 37 years. For the past 27 years, he has been awarded a rating of “AV Preeminent,” the highest possible rating in legal ability and ethical standards, by the peer review rating service of Martindale-Hubbell.


The firm has four "Of Counsel" attorneys, including three litigators, Sean Lipsky, Elena Portales and Paul Brickfield, and one transactional attorney, Robert Fourniadis.   All four attorneys are licensed to practice law in New Jersey. In addition, Sean, Elena and Paul are licensed to practice in New York.


The firm’s offices are in Ridgefield Park, NJ and New York City.
