Who We Are

Our History

Our firm and its partners have deep, deep roots in the Atlantic City area, growing with the region as mega-casino resorts replaced the storied hotels from the World’s Famous Playground’s past. And as government regulation and local zoning in New Jersey becomes more cumbersome and protracted, Nehmad Perillo & Davis continues to grow and stay on top of legislation and recent developments in tax law and land use issues, redevelopment and state environmental regulations.

Our Practice

Nehmad Perillo & Davis is a full service law firm that can assist with the business and personal needs of our clients. And when it comes to qualified New Jersey attorneys, we have quite the resume.

We have handled some of the most significant real estate and land use matters in New Jersey for a client list that includes local and regional developers and most of the major national chains that have developed in our region.  We handle litigation matters, employment matters, asset protection, estate planning and commercial and business transactions.  Additionally, the firm is well versed in municipal law representing several public entity clients.

Our Philosophy

We are interested in a long-term relationship with our clients, to help them meet their business objectives.  Being available when you need us is important to us.  So when you call our office, you reach a live person, not a recording with menu options.  We respond to phone messages and emails quickly and efficiently.

Stone Harbor to amend pool setback standards

On August 7, 2018 Stone Harbor may amend its zoning ordinance to permit pools to be established in the rear yard of bayfront lots under certain specifications.

Construction Permit No Longer Required for Roofing & Siding Jobs on One & Two Family Dwellings

The NJ Department of Community Affairs has reclassified roofing or siding jobs on one and two-family dwellings as minor work and ordinary maintenance, and now includes them on its list of home improvement jobs that no longer are subject to inspection. As such, it is no longer necessary to secure a construction permit to perform the work. The new rules took effect on Monday March 6, 2018.

Filing a property tax appeal is more important than ever under new federal tax law

We now have new federal tax laws for 2018. Perhaps the most significant impact on New Jersey will be the $10,000.00 cap on the deduction for state income and property taxes. Until now, New Jersey residents were able to deduct 100% of their state income and property taxes. Under the new federal tax code, that deduction is capped at $10,000.00.

New Developer-Friendly Site Plan Bond Requirements Enacted

On January 15, during his last day in office, Gov. Chris Christie signed into law Assembly Bill 1425/Senate Bill 3233, which implements major reforms to the requirements for the posting of performance and maintenance guarantees under the Municipal Land Use Law (MLUL), N.J.S.A. 40:55D-1 et seq. The new law is effective immediately. Municipalities are now constrained from requiring performance and maintenance guarantees for private improvements in a development.

The applications would be submitted to the Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit Program (NRTC), which is designed to foster the revitalization of New Jersey's distressed neighborhoods.
