Philip Elberg, Esq. is a partner in the Newark, New Jersey law firm of Medvin and Elberg. He has been a practicing litigator for more then thirty years. In recent years he represented several individuals in claims against Kids of North Jersey, a treatment center for adolescents with "behavior disorders." The case was initiated as a medical malpractice action but when it became clear that the �twelve step� program had evolved into a destructive cult that benefited its founder, the focus of the case changed. The cases were ultimately resolved resulting in payments to the victims in excess of $10,000,000 and public disclosure of the true nature of the facilities. A reported New Jersey Court decision describes Mr. Elberg's work in bringing this story to light as "heroic."
