      McCarter & Higgins is a general practice law firm located in Red Bank ( Monmouth County ), New Jersey, offering professional services to litigation, business, real estate, and estate planning clients.  George W. C. ("Bill") McCarter and William P. (also "Bill") Higgins, Jr. were previously with New Jersey's largest law firm, McCarter & English, in Newark, New Jersey.  In October of 1996, we opened this firm with an emphasis on personal service at reasonable cost to our clients.   

      We have expertise in litigation, including commercial, constitutional, foreclosure, and fiduciary/estate litigation , and in many varieties of business transactions.  The recent transfer of development rights to the Asbury Park oceanfront was negotiated in our office, on behalf of the new developers.  Our years with McCarter & English (which was founded by Mr. McCarter's great-great-grandfather) have given us a depth of experience unusual in local practitioners.

       We hope you find this site interesting and useful.. If you are about to be a witness at a deposition, look over Mr. McCarter's short article about what to expect at a deposition.  For useful information about the point value of New Jersey motor vehicle violations, check this site.  (We do some traffic court work, but Mr. Vercammen knows more than we do in that area.)

       Give us a call at 732-450-1090 -  we answer our own phones.  Alternatively, feel free to use our current email addresses: and  

        As of September 29, 2003, we moved to the new location in Red Bank printed below.
