McHugh also spends time coaching youth in Moorestown James J. McHugh Jr., Esquire,
a Moorestown resident, and co- founder of the law firm Lopez McHugh, LLP, has been named by the American Trial Lawyers As- sociation as a top 100 trial attor- ney in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, for the third year. McHugh has also been selected by judges and other attorneys as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer for six years in a row. He has earned an AV rating— the highest rating with Martin- dale-Hubbell – for both profes- sional competence and ethical in- tegrity, and is a member of The Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.
McHugh attended Drexel Uni-
versity, where he received a de- gree in mechanical engineering. He grew up in Northeast Philadelphia and worked as a plumber in his father’s business from the time he was about 10 years old until he graduated magna cum laude from Villanova Law School and switched careers to practice law. Today, McHugh devotes his
National Remodeling Trainer
spare time to coaching youth sports in Moorestown and assist- ing children and young men and
women in town in whatever way he can. Jim is thrilled that his wife, Colette, con- vinced him to raise their family here. Now his sons
Albert, Jimmy and Cole, and his daughter, Sophia, are extremely for- tunate to live, be educated in and
experience all that Moorestown has to offer. Moorestown’s high school
sports teams and coaches are some of the best in New Jersey, and the academics and teachers are phenomenal, according to McHugh. He credits Ms. Cricket Dever, a
third grade teacher at South Val- ley Elementary School, who has taught all of McHugh’s children, with convincing his youngest son, Cole, to develop a love of reading every night- something McHugh stresses he was unable to do himself.
McHugh had plenty of praise
for Moorestown in general, which he described as “a wonderful place to live and work, that is vi-
sually beautiful and where the people here are friendly and car- ing.
What more could anyone want?
We have farms and places like the Flying Feather and Moorestown Hardware - it would be tough to think of a better place to raise a family.” The town’s diversity is another
positive aspect, in McHugh’s view.
He notes that “our children are exposed to just about every race and religion on the planet, which I am sure will serve them well when they begin to raise their own families. I believe that the at- mosphere in Moorestown teaches our children tolerance, civility, kindness, caring, and respect, without sacrificing their princi- ples.”
McHugh maintains his
Moorestown law office on Main Street and has employed and con- tinues to employ many of Moorestown’s young men and women in high school and col- lege. He and attorney Regina Johnson, who runs the Moorestown office, have always
