Alex Lyubarsky is a shareholder on the Personal Injury group at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, P.A. He has represented victims in complex litigation cases for over fourteen years. Similar to his approach to client relationships, Mr. Lyubarsky makes it his responsibility to stay informed of the latest legal developments and case decisions affecting the law. He 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, Mr. Lyubarsky 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, he 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.
Results achieved in prior matters are not meant to be a guarantee of success as the facts and legal circumstances vary from matter to matter. Mr. Lyubarsky'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. His participation on this case has had a direct benefit on many injured parties who otherwise may have been prevented from obtaining relief.
Mr. Lyubarsky is active within the Russian community and speaks Russian fluently.
