Law360 Features an Interview with Jason Rittie on his Leadership of the Firm’s New Sussex County Office

August 9, 2023

Jason Rittie, a partner and attorney with Einhorn Barbarito Frost & Botwinick since 2003, recently moved from the firm’s Denville headquarters to its new office location in Sparta, NJ. As Jason explained to a Law360 reporter, “We’ve been convenient for Sussex County clients, but now being able to have an actual physical office located at 1 Main St., we have the ability to have a foothold here and have a place for clients to come and meet with us in person, and not have to travel down to [the firm’s headquarters in] Denville.”

The article, “Einhorn Barbarito’s New Office Leader Talks Expanding In NJ,” included Jason’s perspective about Sussex County, and the firm’s strategy for opening the Sparta office. “We’ve obviously been a mainstay in Morris County since 1961. But our attorneys travel throughout the state, representing various clients in all different types of matters. We’ve been doing work, including myself, in Sussex County. We have plenty of Sussex County clients, whether it be for family matters, for real estate, for land use and zoning, for personal injury; you know, all the services we offer.”

In addition to his new role overseeing the office, Jason will continue to “do real estate in the broadest sense,” adding, “I handle residential transactions, commercial transactions, I do banking work, I represent some lenders doing loan work, and I do land use and zoning and development work primarily on the development side. I do work already in Sussex County, so this will allow me to continue doing that type of work and really becoming more involved with small and medium-sized businesses. I also do corporate law, advising corporate clients as part of my practice group, whether that’s creating business entities or reviewing operating agreements or doing contracts and reviewing contracts.”

Clients will continue to have access to all of the firm’s practices and attorneys. As Jason said to Law360, “We have a comprehensive full-service firm and that’s what I like about Einhorn Barbarito, having the ability to collaborate with other attorneys in the office. Because on any given matter, for example, a real estate transaction, there may be title issues, or may be survey issues, there may be tax issues where I may have to collaborate with our tax department. We are able to offer that full spectrum to our clients all under one roof, and that’s really what we’re excited about bringing to Sussex County: having the ability to offer all of these services.”

Finally, as a Sussex County resident, Jason is optimistic about future growth. “Both residential and commercial real estate, at least from my observations here in Sussex, will continue to grow,” he said, “…for Sussex County, there is still a lot of open land that’s available for further development. There are a lot of homes, people are looking to move to Sussex County out of the suburbs. So in my opinion Sussex County will continue to remain a growing county, if not exceed some of the growth that you may see in other areas of the state.”
