Lewis Stein is the founding member of the litigation section of the firm. He brings to today’s cases a notable record of success on behalf of clients injured in automobile accidents, by unsafe products, and as the result of bad medical treatment. He has appeared in all State and Federal Courts, and obtained jury verdicts as high as five million ($5,000,000.00) dollars and a number of settlements in excess of one million ($1,000,000.00) dollars. His cases in the Supreme Court of New Jersey have established the standard for assessing loss of future income to injured children, preserved the rights of supermarket patrons to obtain justice when a fall is caused by the store’s operation, and successfully argued on behalf of the NJ State Bar Association to maintain access to the courts for permanently injured victims of automobile accidents.

A New York University Law School graduate (Juris Doctor) and Appellate Court law clerk whose early career included a term as a Public Defender for Morris, Sussex and Warren Counties and the defense of four first degree murder indictments that resulted in one acquittal, and two significantly reduced charges, he now concentrates on personal injury litigation with an emphasis on medical malpractice.

He was one of the first eleven lawyers in the State of New Jersey certified by the Supreme Court in 1982 as both a certified civil and criminal lawyer, attesting to his skills as a trial lawyer. He has been admitted to practice in the Courts of the State of New Jersey as well as the United States District Court, Third Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

His status as a preeminent lawyer has been recognized by the Morris County Bar Association honoring him as recipient of its first Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003, after serving as its President in 1990; and by the NJ State Bar Association as a trustee from 1998 to 2004, with its Professionalism Award in 2006 as well as the coveted Chairmanship of its Committee on Approval of Judicial and Prosecutorial Appointments by the governor in 2005 and 2006. He also holds membership in the American Bar Association and the Association for Justice, a national association of plaintiff’s personal injury lawyers. He also has been offered membership in the American Trial Lawyers Association, an Association of the 100 Best Trial Lawyers in New Jersey.
