Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I am a Workers Compensation lawyer at Levinson Axelrod where I have handled Compensation cases for 37 years. I started at Levinson Axelrod in 1985 and have worked there since I graduated from Villanova Law school in 1985.
I have handled thousands of cases over my career including Construction site, Toxic exposure to chemicals, cancer claims, CoVid claims and orthopedic occupational claims.
I am a leader in an organization I help found in the early 1990's named COSH that acts as a Watchdog for Workers Compensation legislation. I have been instrumental in helping the passage of legislation that has helped workers including our COVID ESSENTIAL WORKER law.
I am a carpenter by trade and still carry my union Book from Carpenters Local #253 in Hackensack.
I have handled cases in every venue in NJ from Morris County to Cumberland County.
I was one of the original compensation lawyers that became Certified by the NJ Supreme Court in the early 1990's
I have been named to NJ Super Lawyers in 2006 and from 2008 to the present.
I have been named by NJ's Best Lawyers
I have been named by numerous groups as one of the most influential Workers Compensation Lawyers in NJ.
I have tried hundreds of cases and have taken numerous cases to the Appellate Court.
Many of the cases I handle are referred by colleagues that do not have the experience, medical community connections, financial resources and support staff I have at Levinson Axelrod.
I run our Compensation Department in our 10 offices located in Edison, Middletown, Howell, Forked River, Jamesburg, Rockaway, Raritan, Flemington, Brick and Mt. Laurel.
I work with 4 other compensation lawyers all who have over 20 years experience. Our newest Compensation lawyer is fluent in Spanish. We have over 100 years of collective workers compensation experience.
We take on cases for workers who are dissatisfied with their current lawyer.
