Richard A. Reinartz is an accomplished trial attorney who has dedicated his career to protecting the rights of injured individuals and helping them obtain the maximum possible compensation for their injuries.

Prior to opening The Reinartz Law Firm, Richard worked for over a decade as a trial attorney at two of the largest and most prominent law firms in the United States.  In that capacity, he represented injured individuals in personal injury matters, as well as insurance companies and Fortune 500 corporations in complex business disputes.  Having represented both plaintiffs and defendants in high-stakes multi-party litigation, Richard possesses a unique perspective of the litigation process.  He knows firsthand how insurance companies and large corporations defend against claims brought by injured individuals, and is able to use this information to navigate the complexities of the litigation process and position cases for maximum possible recovery, whether at trial or by way of pre-trial settlement.  For business clients, Richard is able to identify relevant issues at the outset of a dispute and provide cost-effective, solution-oriented legal services.

Richard has been chosen for inclusion in Super Lawyers - an independent listing of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.  This distinction is conferred on only 2.5% of all licensed attorneys in the state.  In addition, the New Jersey Supreme Court has appointed Richard to serve on its District V-A (Newark/Essex) Ethics Committee based on his track record of integrity and ethical lawyering.  Richard also serves on various state bar committees by appointment of the President of the New Jersey State Bar Association.

In addition to the above distinctions, giving back to the community has been rewarding for Richard.  He has provided pro bono legal services to the Newark Reentry Legal Services organization, which helps individuals with criminal records address civil legal matters that present barriers to successful community reintegration.  He has also provided pro bono legal services to the "Wills for Heroes" program, which provides trust and estate planning services completely free-of-charge to a variety of first responders, emergency medical technicians, and police and fire department personnel and their families.

Richard is licensed to practice in New Jersey and New York, in addition to various federal trial and appellate courts, including the Supreme Court of the United States.  He is personally involved in the day-to-day handling of all cases handled by The Reinartz Law Firm, ensuring continuity of attorney work product and a comprehensive understanding of the facts, procedural history, and strategies unique to each case.
