About the Firm

Wiley Malehorn Sirota & Raynes is a full-service New Jersey law firm providing a broad range of legal services to corporate, financial, and governmental institutions, as well as to individuals.

Wiley Malehorn Sirota & Raynes was founded in 1973 in Morristown, where our office remains today, with a focus on providing the best legal representation to our clients in a professional, efficient, and personal manner.

Wiley Malehorn Sirota & Raynes was started by Stephen B. Wiley and Donald M. Malehorn. Steve and Don were childhood friends who grew up together in Morristown. Both went to Princeton University and then Columbia University Law School.

Steve Wiley (1929 to 2015) was one of New Jersey's most accomplished and celebrated attorneys, statesmen, and community leaders. He was counsel to the Governor, a State Senator, Chair of the University of Medicine and Dentistry, Chair of the State Legal Ethics Commission, and Chair of the State's Board of Higher Education. Steve founded First Morris Bank and Trust and Morris Cablevision, and was instrumental in the success of the Mayo Performing Arts Center, the Morristown Green, and the Joint Free Library of Morristown and Morris Township. In fact, the Library erected a statue in Steve's honor in 2021. As an attorney, he was largely responsible for the merger of the Morristown and Morris Township school districts, a key reason why the community continues to thrive. In his later years, Steve became a successful published poet.

Don Malehorn (1931 to 2017) also was intensely involved in the merger of the Morristown and Morris Township school districts. He was as well involved in many community efforts. Don was recognized as a brilliant attorney across a wide range of disciplines, but with special emphasis on real estate and land use matters. He was a founding member of the Morristown Kiwanis and was extensively involved in Princeton alumni affairs.

Wiley Malehorn Sirota & Raynes offers the sophistication and breadth of experience associated with large national law firms, with the personalized care and attention of a smaller firm.

The Firm has been a trusted member of the Morris County community for the last four decades and plays an integral part in a number of local non-profit and charitable organizations including Preschool Advantage, the Battered women's Legal Advocacy Project, and the Girl scouts.
