DANA WEFER IS AN EXPERIENCED ATTORNEY in New Jersey and New York. Ms. Wefer is best known for her success in Mazdabrook Commons v. Khan, which she briefed and argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court. Mazdabrook established that the free speech right to post political signs in a home window is so fundamental it cannot be waived, even in a Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions.
Ms. Wefer’s litigation experience is wide ranging and includes complex business law, labor and employment issues, constitutional law, construction law, landlord tenant disputes, condominium association law, breach of contract disputes and intellectual property infringement. Ms. Wefer practices in Northern and Central New Jersey and in all levels of court from Municipal and Landlord Tenant court to the New Jersey Supreme Court.
Contract disputes, including oral or informal contracts, are often the focus of business litigation. Because of her experience litigating contracts, Ms. Wefer has a keen eye for contract weaknesses and works hard to minimize the likelihood that her clients end up in court and maximize their chances of success if they do. Ms. Wefer has experience drafting employment, vendor, and other business-related contracts.
Ms. Wefer graduated with Highest Honors from Rutgers University in 2004. She went on to Rutgers Law School in 2007 where she was a Dean’s Merit Scholar, associate editor of the Women’s Rights Law Reporter and a member of the Moot Court Board. During her time in law school, she was also selected to be a fellow with the Eagleton Institute of Politics. After law school, Ms. Wefer earned an M.S. in Biotechnology from William Paterson University.
Ms. Wefer is admitted to practice law in New York and New Jersey.
