You've been hurt. You don't need to manage the aftermath on your own. We see you and we're here to help you get the results that you deserve.
Here at De Frank Law Group, we pair dedicated service with the knowledgeable and experienced representation that gives you the best chance to see justice for the accident and/or negligence you've experienced.
Our firm includes attorneys recognized by publications such as Super Lawyers and those certified in Civil Trial Advocacy by the New Jersey Supreme Court. We have achieved numerous life-changing settlements and verdicts for our clients, including multi-million dollar results where such an award was warranted.
Our clients have had their lives changed by injury and, even though we have earned many life-changing settlements yielding millions of dollars, our practice is not just about big verdicts or "easy" wins. We pride ourselves on tackling the challenging cases that may have offered little to no compensation - the cases that other lawyers rejected - and helping those who were made to feel helpless. If there's a way for you to recover the unjust costs you've sustained, we'll work hard to find it.
Each morning, our collaborative staff holds a level-set meeting to discuss cases and the best course of action for our clients. This means that no matter who you partner with in our firm, you will benefit from the experience and expertise of our entire legal team.
We are here to make sure all of your needs are being addressed, including the payment of your medical bills, getting the proper care and treatment, and obtaining maximum recovery for your injuries. All too often, you are quoted a fraction of the compensation you deserve. Even when other lawyers say no to the challenge, we're here to help.
Our attorneys are locally and nationally recognized for being exceptionally skilled in trial law for personal injury. We share our vast experience in negotiation and litigation to give every client and every case the best advice and representation that achieves results.
We are compassionate to your personal situation and the challenges that follow wrongful conduct and injury. To help you take the first step on the path to justice, we offer after-hours appointments and can travel to your home, hospital, or other convenient location.
Peter J. De Frank is originally from Essex County, raised in Nutley, New Jersey. Since beginning his practice in 2008, Peter has worked and assisted on some of the largest civil verdicts/settlements in New Jersey. In 2009, Peter worked on three (3) of the top-twenty verdicts and settlements of 2009. Peter’s experience includes motor vehicle accidents, premises cases (slip & falls), trucking accidents, brain injury cases, and negligent security cases.
In 2011 Peter became one of the youngest members of the very prestigious “Million Dollar Advocates Forum” after settling a pedestrian/motor vehicle accident case for $1,050,000 achieving this high honor prior to the age of thirty (30). Fewer than 1% of lawyers are members of this prestigious group.
Since that time, Peter has continued to achieve unparalleled results for his clients through trial and complex litigation cases.
Peter’s more recent verdicts include some of the largest verdicts in the State of New Jersey. In September of 2022, Peter obtained a verdict in the amount of $2,400,000 for a client with a herniated disc and several injections who was rear-ended in a motor vehicle accident. The insurance carrier defending the trial offered nothing prior to the trial and this matter is part one of the first cases in New Jersey requesting relief under the new “New Jersey Insurance Fair Conduct Act.”
A second multi-million-dollar result came in September of 2022 for a special needs woman who fell on a dance floor in the amount of $4,550,000. The Defendant and insurance carrier also made no offer prior to trial, enlisting several attorneys work on the matter. This matter was co-counseled for trial with the law firm of Laddey, Clark and Ryan in Sparta.
Peter has been recognized through peer review with “New Jersey Super Lawyers,” each year since his third year in practice, as well as the “Top 40, Under 40.”
Peter is proud to have had numerous positive results for difficult and complex civil cases, many of which the insurance companies have made no offers to settle and other attorneys/law firms have rejected the case due to the level of difficulty.
Attorney Peter J. De Frank has always practiced personal injury with a passion and considers each case to be a privilege.
