Review Robert Paarz

About Me

ROBERT E. PAARZ, Esq., was certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Civil Trial Attorney in 1983, and was re-certified in 1991, 1998, and 2005. In 2010, Mr. Paarz was one of only two lawyers in the entire state of New Jersey to be admitted into the American College of Trial Lawyers, a prestigious national organization into which leading attorneys in the U.S. are admitted by invitation only. 


 


Based on selection by polling other attorneys, Mr. Paarz has consistently been named a "Super Lawyer" in Plaintiff's Medical Malpractice by New Jersey magazine. He is also listed in Best Lawyers, the oldest peer review publication of the legal profession, under the specialty of Medical Malpractice. Best Lawyers compiles lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting peer review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.He is rated "AV" by Martindale Hubbell, the highest available rating for legal ability and ethical standards.


 


Mr. Paarz was formerly a highly successful medical malpractice defense attorney. Between 1976 and 2001, he tried over 250 medical malpractice cases to a verdict, many involving catastrophic injury and death. Mr. Paarz also personally argued more than 10 cases in front of the New Jersey Supreme Court, several of which shaped the law in medical malpractice in New Jersey.


 


Mr. Paarz decided to end his representation of defendants in medical malpractice cases in 2001. "I had a change of heart in midcareer. I love to try cases and it was very satisfying to exonerate a physician I felt did nothing wrong. But a defense attorney typically must defend whatever cases a malpractice insurance company assigns, and I grew tired of having to defend medical care I personally didn't believe in." Instead, he chose to begin representing patients. "The nice part about plaintiff's work, besides the satisfaction of advocating for a patient's right to quality health care, is that we choose which cases we pursue and will only litigate cases we believe in."


 


In his very first trial as a plaintiff's attorney in a medical malpractice case, Mr. Paarz obtained a jury verdict in excess of 4 million dollars. 
Mr. Paarz graduated cum laude (with honors) from both the Georgia Institute of Technology (Bachelor of Science) and Rutgers University School of Law (Juris Doctor).
