Review Louis De Voto

About Me

I am a trial attorney that specializes in representing injured persons as a result of the negligent and reckless conduct of others.  Many of the cases I handle are serious injury and death cases that result from auto and truck crashes, defective products, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, construction accidents and trip and fall cases.   I am rated AV by Martindale Hubbell as having the highest level of legal competence and ethics and have been consistently named in Best Lawyers in America and New Jersey since 2006.  I am Certified as a Civil Trial Attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court and Board Certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy.  In 2007-2008, I served as President of the Trial Attorneys of New Jersey. 


Most importantly, I care about the people I represent and the results that I achieve for my clients.  When I represent you, you can be assured that you will understand every aspect of your case including what I will do to successfully handle your case.  I am aggressive, creative and passionate.  Your phone calls will be answered or promptly returned and you will receive copies of all important documents filed in your case.  I look froward to the opportunity to represent you.

  • Coby L. Wooten

    I had the pleasure of representing a client from Texas who was injured in a truck wreck in New Jersey. I sought out Lou as co-counsel to represent my client. We teamed up together to represent this person with him in New Jersey and I being in Texas. The client had a severe brain injury, but which was hard to diagnose and difficult to relate to the accident. That being the case, it was aggressively defended. Lou retained the best experts and fully and completely prepared them and the case for trial. On the fourth day of trial our case settled for a large sum favorable to the client. I highly recommend Lou in any catastrophic or serious injury case. He was prepared, competent and most importantly compassionate and understanding of the client and the family's needs. Coby L.
