Harold & Chris Otterbeck


Christopher H. Otterbeck, Esq. is licensed to practice law in the State of New Jersey as well as in New York. Consequently, The Otterbeck Law firm can accommodate our clients with respect to various types of transactions in both jurisdictions.

We analogize our practice to that of your family doctor. If you have a medical problem, your first call will probably be to your family doctor. If he can take care of your problem, he will. If he is unable to assist you, he will likely refer you to a specialist who can

We suggest to our clients that The Otterbeck Law Firm should be their first call when encountering any legal problem. If our firm cannot represent you in a specific area of legal practice, we consider it a privilege to be able to recommend our family of clients to other competent attorneys who specialize in such other areas of practice. The difference between a person seeking an attorney for a particular legal problem on his or her own, and one of our attorneys recommending an attorney with competence in a particular field, is often the difference between making an uneducated "guess," and a recommendation which is based on decades of experience in the legal profession. In many such situations, and especially in situations where our client has some history with us, one of our attorneys remains involved with the legal matter. Our attorney acts as the "quarterback" of the team which will guide your legal matter from initiation to conclusion.

So….we hope that you will call us to assist you with your legal issues. Let us be the "legal umbrella" for all of your family and business legal needs.
