Celebrating Over 50 Years of Service
We have experienced attorneys who have participated in appellate court proceedings ranging from the New Jersey Appellate Division to the New Jersey Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.
Our lawyers have long been recognized statewide for extraordinary success in appellate work. Lewis Stein’s appellate cases have resulted in published opinions dating back to the 1960’s.
He was recently instrumental in the following significant decisions: DiProspero v. Penn, 183 N.J. 477 (2005)(establishing that car accident victims need not show a “serious life impact” in order to recover for pain and suffering); Nisivoccia v. Glass Gardens, Inc., 175 N.J. 559 (2003)(establishing that reasonable procedures must be implemented for grocery stores to ensure that fruit is not on the floor of their stores) and Lasser v. Reliance Standard Life Ins. Co., 344 F.3d 381 (3rd Cir. 2003)(reversing insurance company’s denial of claim for disability benefits by orthopedic surgeon, who was precluded by his heart condition from safely continuing to perform on-call and emergency surgery services).
The firm’s litigation group is quick to evaluate the potential to appeal and have demonstrated repeated success in bringing appeals in both state and federal courts.
Request A Consultation
I retained attorney Steve Loewenthal to handle my personal injury case. Prior to our consultation, I was nervous and still unsure about what to do. Steve explained the law, my options, and addressed all my questions or concerns about going forward. He’s an extremely knowledgeable attorney who acts in a professional, respectful, and kind demeanor. He is direct and honest, does not make any ridiculous promises, or show any sign of unethical behavior. Before the depositions, he explained the process, took the time to calm my concerns/fears, but most importantly, instructed me to tell the truth. I am aware of some of the negative stereotypes assumed about personal injury attorneys; however, Steve exhibits NONE of these negative qualities.
If you are a sports fan, you will love his office! His has an amazing assistant who was also very helpful! I did not call often but when I did, she knew who I was and exchanged pleasantries. With integrity and expertise, Steve succeeded in effectively handling my case. I do not share my experiences often; but in this case, Steve Loewenthal definitely earned my trust, respect, and my recommendation!
You’re straight and to the point. No B/S. No dancing around answers to my questions. In my favor or not.
Mr. Loewenthal represented me in a civil case. From the initial consultation to the settlement, Steve provided the most professional, knowledgeable and considerate level of service. Steve kept me informed every step of the way and took his time to explain each new development in the case.
Steve’s experience gave me confidence from the outset the case would be handled with expertise. He was able to coordinate between all parties involved and his negotiating skills resulted in a most favorable outcome. His staff was a pleasure to deal with and were very accommodating. Steve and his office went above and beyond and he comes with my highest recommendation. Thank You, Steve, for everything you did in handling my case.
You always listen and understand the issues and my questions. You explain and answer without confusion. You are a straightforward, personable lawyer and person.
Mr. Loewenthal took my automobile personal injury case after 2 other law firms turned me down because of car insurance reasons that couldn’t get me a settlement. In NJ, you only have 2 years after your date of accident to pursue personal injury damage. I went to Mr. Loewenthal with my case close to 3 months before the 2 year deadline to sue. He walked me through everything that was going to happen, assured me that we have a case and worked hard on my case and met the deadline to sue. When Mr. Loewenthal called me withe settlement number, I almost fell off of my chair. He got me way more than I thought was possible, for I thought I was getting nothing because of the other lawyers turning my case down. Needless to say, Mr. Loewenthal is a “Jackpot!” lawyer and I recommend him 101% to anyone who wants a real lawyer.
I would and already have recommended you to friends, if they required an attorney because of your expertise and knowledge of the law. Also, you made the long often drawn-out process of a workers’ compensation claim as quick and painless as was legally allowed.
