Mintz & Geftic - Fighting For Justice Each and Every Day

Mintz & Geftic LLC is New Jersey’s premier litigation law firm. We have a broad range of expertise in lawsuits involving personal injuries, workers’ compensation, medical malpractice, business disputes, wage and hour violations, and class actions. We have offices located in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and in New York, New York.

Our attorneys have the distinction of garnering millions of dollars in recoveries for our clients through trial verdicts and settlements in New Jersey and New York. For example, in 2015, in a Bergen County lawsuit, Mintz & Geftic obtained $1.475 million for their client who was seriously injured in a car accident, and a $1.1 million settlement for their client in a case that involved work-related injuries from a fall from scaffolding while at work.  Our client endured multiple fractures to the skull, knees, wrists and face, along with a long list of other serious injuries.   The settlement included a recovery of $1,000,000 for negligence and $136,500 for workers compensation benefits.

Our lawyers closed out 2015 by resolving a car accident case for $531,000 for their client who suffered serious injuries, including a head injury, concussion, and mild traumatic brain injury, as a result of a crash on the Garden State Parkway. The total settlement consisted of $430,000 for negligence and $101,000 for workers' compensation benefits

At the very end of 2015, in the medical malpractice arena, Mintz & Geftic’s of counsel, Jeffrey E. Strauss, obtained what we believe will be the largest personal injury settlement of 2015. After many years of a relentless and lengthy hard fought legal battle, Mr. Strauss secured a $15 million settlement in a medical malpractice suit on behalf of an 11-year-old girl from Irvington, New Jersey. An Essex County, New Jersey Superior Court Judge, in Newark, New Jersey, approved the settlement, which occurred just 10 days before trial.

On the class action front, in one class action lawsuit, Mintz & Geftic’s Bryan H. Mintz, along with co-counsel, obtained a $2.1 million settlement for a class action alleging a failure to comply with New Jersey laws governing red light cameras. In another class action suit,  Bryan H. Mintz, along with co-counsel, obtained a settlement of $1.5 million against a New Jersey food distributor alleging violations of New Jersey’s Wage & Hour law.  The Court approved the settlement against the food distributor on April 13, 2016 and as of July 2016, the victims of the alleged wage theft received their settlement checks.

Mintz & Geftic’s complex commercial litigation practice is very active and there are some high profile class action cases currently pending against companies for wage and hour violations, as well as some hotly contested business disputes that are being fought in courts throughout New Jersey.
