Jeffrey M. Parrella

Jeffrey M. Parrella, Esq. began his career in the creditor’s rights industry over thirty years ago while still in high school. After graduating from Binghamton University he received his Juris Doctor from Brooklyn Law School.  He is a member of the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania Bar, and is admitted to practice before the United States District Courts in the Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of New York as well as the District of New Jersey.

As an attorney, Mr. Parrella has handled well over one hundred thousand various cases including many complex matters in nearly all of the courts of NY, NJ and PA. After starting a successful solo practice in New York City he joined the firm of Goldman & Warshaw, P.C.  as a Partner in 1998.  He founded the New York office of that firm which became Goldman, Warshaw & Parrella, P.C. and grew into one of the most renowned credit and collections firms on the east coast.  The National Law Journal named the firm the second most used firm by Fortune 100 companies in the entire country in the area of commercial law and contracts litigation. Building upon the success of the New York office, he also founded the Pennsylvania office of the firm.

Mr. Parrella was called upon once again to start up a New York Legal Department at a well established law firm, this time at Nudelman Klemm & Golub, P.C. where he was Vice President and Director of New York Operations.  From there he joined yet another well established firm, Houslanger & Associates, PLLC, where he was the senior litigation attorney in the New York office, focused primarily on complex litigation and compliance.  Once again he expanded a prominent firm into a new state, this time establishing and becoming a shareholder in the New Jersey office.

Immediately prior to joining Tenaglia & Hunt, Mr. Parrella worked alongside Noel E. Schablik, Esq. a veteran New Jersey Certified Trial Attorney on matters ranging from personal injury, employment matters, legal malpractice issues and complex commercial litigation matters. In addition to creditor’s rights issues, Mr. Parrella has experience in many other practice areas including personal injury, employment litigation, wills, trusts, special needs trusts, shareholder derivative suits, breach of fiduciary duty litigation, asset protection, buy/sell agreements, business succession planning, matrimonial issues, criminal expungement, tax appeals and legal malpractice.
