“My clients are individuals—real people who come to me with real problems—and those people and problems deserve my personal attention. Spending time getting to know my clients and gathering a first-hand account of their story is an integral part of my strategic approach to their case. That personal connection enables me to paint an accurate and compelling portrayal to the court about how their injuries and resulting hardships have adversely affected their lives. But the primary motivation behind the method is obtaining both a greater recovery, and peace of mind for my clients.”
Alex, a Shareholder on the Wilentz Personal Injury team, has represented victims in complex litigation cases for over fourteen years. Similar to his approach to client relationships, Alex personally makes it his responsibility to stay informed of the latest legal developments and case decisions affecting the law. Alex believes that a commitment to mastering the facts and law in a particular matter translate to a greater opportunity for advantage for his clients.
At both the trial court and appellate level, Alex has litigated numerous personal injury cases including those arising from automobile accidents, medical malpractice, defective/unsafe products, slip and fall accidents, and workplace/construction incidents. As appellate counsel, Alex was instrumental in preserving significant victories for his clients:
- Williams v. Restaino, 2012 WL 5869425: the Appellate Division affirmed a jury verdict of $1.2 million to a motorist who sustained soft tissue spinal injuries in a motor vehicle accident.
- Henebema v. South Jersey Transp. Authority, 430 N.J. Super. 485 (2013): the Appellate Division affirmed a damages verdict of $8.7 million to a motorist who was maimed in an accident on a state expressway, while remanding on a limited liability issue.
Alex’s cases have also resulted in precedent-setting victories for his clients. For example, in Marshall v. Klebanov, 188 N.J. 23 (2006), the New Jersey Appellate Division, and subsequently the Supreme Court, agreed and concluded that mental health professionals cannot abandon their patients and have a duty to safeguard their patients from reasonably foreseeable self-inflicted injury. Alex’s participation on this case has had a direct benefit on many injured parties who otherwise may have been prevented from obtaining relief.
