NJ Law Firm Charges into Electric Car Technology; Partner Plans to Replace His Mercedes with a Tesla

A New Jersey-based law firm is in the forefront of green-energy technology.

By providing two electric-car charging stations as a courtesy for clients of its Cherry Hill headquarters, Flaster/Greenberg will increase by 50 percent the number of such facilities in Camden County, the Courier-Post reports.

At least one client is overjoyed, telling the newspaper that he plans to stop by the law offices regularly, even if he doesn’t need legal advice.

Peter Spirgel, who serves as the firm’s managing shareholder and chief operating officer, plans to take delivery in June of a Tesla Model S to replace his current Mercedes.

“You can’t have electric cars without visible places to charge them,” he tells the newspaper. “Gas engines wouldn’t be viable if we didn’t have gas stations.”
