Review Raymond Gill

About Me

Mr. Gill graduated Magna Cum Laude from Rider University in 1974 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. He attended the University of Richmond, where he graduated at the top of his class and received a Juris Doctorate in 1977. Mr. Gill was admitted to the Virginia bar prior to graduation from law school in 1977 and was also admitted to the New Jersey bar later that year. He is licensed to practice law in the United States District Court and Supreme Court of New Jersey.


 


In September of 1998, Mr. Gill earned the designation of "Board Certified Civil Trial Advocate" by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, the national accreditation organization of the American Bar Association. Mr. Gill is also a member of the Board of Governors of the American Association for Justice, the American Bar Association, New Jersey Bar Association, Virginia Bar Association, Middlesex County Bar Association and Middlesex County Trial Lawyers Association. Mr. Gill holds a civil trial certification from the National College of Advocacy and is certified as a Civil Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey.


 


Born and raised in Woodbridge, New Jersey, Mr. Gill now resides in Sea Bright. He is single and has three children. Mr. Gill founded the fifteen lawyer firm in 1986. He has practiced trial law in Woodbridge continuously since 1977 and has concentrated on the representation of accident victims for the past twenty years. Since 1977, Mr. Gill has tried hundreds of jury and non-jury trials to conclusion in the areas of general negligence, automobile negligence, medical malpractice and products liability. During that time, he has achieved many multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts on behalf of his clients.


 


 Recognized statewide as an innovator in the field of demonstrative evidence and trial tactics, Mr. Gill is a also frequent lecturer on these and other related topics for the Association of Trial Lawyers of America both in New Jersey and on the national level.


 


Mr. Gill also received five (5) of New Jersey's Top 20 Personal Injury Awards from September 2008 until September 2009. Three of those five cases were listed in the Top 10. In these five cases alone, Mr. Gill accumulated nearly $50 million dollars for his clients.
