T he Law firm of CAFIERO LAW, P.A. continues the tradition of performing legal services with competence and excellence. A successor to The Law Office of Cafiero & Balliette, the firm was first established by its founder Anthony J. Cafiero in 1931.
He was the son of a Philadelphia barber and began his work career at the age of 10 when joining the family business. Anthony worked as a barber and bellhop in downtown Philadelphia prior to moving to North Wildwood, New Jersey in 1921. He opened his own real estate office and was appointed to serve as the City of North Wildwood Treasurer prior to putting himself through law school in Newark, New Jersey.
Anthony returned to the Wildwoods and began his private law practice during which time he was appointed to serve as Clerk to the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders and, on two occasions, as the Cape May County Delegate to the State Constitutional Conventions that revised the New Jersey Constitution. Anthony went on to serve as a Cape May County Prosecutor, State Senator, Judge of the New Jersey Court of Common Pleas, Superior Court Judge and Assignment Judge for the State of New Jersey presiding over Cape May, Atlantic, Cumberland, Burlington, Gloucester and Salem counties. He diligently and conscientiously performed his duties and positively contributed to the New Jersey legal system for five decades.
Over the past 90 years, the firm has tirelessly promoted and protected its clients’ interests with the same tenacity and commitment as its humble and accomplished founder.
