Christopher Thaddeus DiGirolamo

About me

Managing Partner at Maggiano, DiGirolamo, Lizzi and is admitted to practice law in the State and Federal Courts of the State New Jersey, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.

I have protected the rights of victims of car accidents, fall downs, construction accidents, on the job injuries, represented the men, women and families that make up the labor force in New Jersey and helped union workers for over twenty-two years in various types of litigation including construction accidents, product defects, dangerous workplaces, employment disputes and most notably in workers compensation claims. I've achieved a number of multi-million dollar verdicts and recoveries for workplace accident victims and their families, including serving as co-counsel in the largest personal injury recovery ($101 million) in a construction accident in United States history.

My aggressive style has earned him numerous awards and recognition from I peers both in New Jersey and nationally, and I consider this my greatest professional compliment. I have been chosen year after year by his peers and colleagues as one of the best litigators in New Jersey as well as in the United States.

I have been recognized as one of the best trial lawyers and litigators by my peers and members of the judiciary and received numerous annual accolades by U.S. News and World reports.
