For over 50 years, Martin M. Barger has practiced law in the State of New Jersey.
Mr. Barger focuses his practice on education law, municipal law, estate planning, residential real estate, contract law, and tax appeals for municipalities.
Mr. Barger has been the Managing Partner of the Reussille Law Firm since July 2000.
The Reussille Law Firm traces its beginning to 1861, when John S. Applegate, Sr. was admitted to the New Jersey Bar. He headed Applegate & Nevius and Applegate & Hope before his son, John S. Applegate, Jr., joined with his father to form John S. Applegate & Son.
After his father’s death in 1916, John S. Applegate, Jr. continued to practice law at 34 Broad Street, Red Bank. In 1927, Mr. Applegate joined with William Stevens, William Foster, Lester Leonard and Leon Reussille, Jr., to form Applegate, Stevens, Foster, Leonard & Reussille.
In 1996, the firm changed its name to Reussille, Mausner, Carotenuto, Barger & Steel, and, in 2010, soon after the retirements of Milton A. Mausner and Samuel Carotenuto, became known under its current name, the Reussille Law Firm.
Mr. Barger became associated with the firm in 1965 and became a partner in 1969.
The firm moved from 34 Broad Street to 365 Broad Street, Red Bank, in 1993 and then to its current office, 149 Avenue at the Common, Shrewsbury, in 2012.
