The list is LONG of the wonderful things that I can say about Barry, Maria (his assistant), Ed & the rest of the folks that I had the HONOR of spending time with during my case. I brought my case to another lawyer that told me that I have no case, yet Barry was not only able to WIN, but he WON a substantial amount! Lawyers have awful reputations, but Barry defies every single one of them! Barry Eichen genuinely CARES about his clients!! NOTHING was too much to ask for - there was no such thing as too many phone calls! Without a doubt, I was in the BEST HANDS with Barry as my attorney! I not only WON my lawsuit, but I also WON lifelong FRIENDS!

I hired Mr.Eichen in 1992 after I was involved in a seriois car accident which was declared 100% the other guys fault, I was 18 years old the other guy William Arnold, 86 years old blew a stop sign while coming home from a military banquet, I'm sure he wasn't drinking 7 up.....I broke my neck( baseler fracture) and back in 7 places, broke my ribs, sustained closed head injuries, broke my left knee, broken sturnum were just a few of the injuries I sustained in the wreck..Mr. Eichen had called me by a wrong name serval times while I was on the stand,calling my Rob Cole as my name is Jeff.. He claimed his secretary mixed up mine and another person with same last name files!!!! He was referring to my closed head injuries as " The meat of his case" which was the least of my injuries...My back and neck was never really mentioned,or any of the major injuries, just the close head injury.. He had charged me for several charts and animations of how a closed head injury is sustained in a car accident which he had from an earlier cases that wasn't mine! All his records were mixed up with another client of his, the jury awarded me a 1 million dollar settlement, but Mr. Eichen claimed I signed a high low deal which said if I was awarded 125,000 I would only be able to collect 100,000 and if the jury came back with nothing I would still recieve $25,000...I never ever agreed to this and would have never ever signed something so ignorant..as the insurance company had offered me a structured settlement for 1 million but I turned it down on Mr.Eichens recommendation...The week long court case was like a 6 ring circus, with Mr. Eichen the ring leader!!! This case was in 1994 and had almost 5 years of physical therapy to learn to walk again..The whole case was a nightmare, and seems now he's claiming all these huge awards, and he even used a poster sized NJ Law Journal write up of the case stating that he got me a settlement of a lump sum pay out of 1 million dollars which WAS NOT The case! Basicslly he used this article which was retracted as a promotional gimick for other poor suckers he conned. I only received 100,000 dollars and after he took his third I wound up with only 66,600$...I have lifetime of horrific pain ever since and will always have pain for the rest of my life! Now that he's some kind of big shot, you'd think he'd make things right for screwing up my case so horrifically badly!!! Right after the case, He wouldn't speak to me, ducked my calls and even ran out of the back office because I wanted to talk to him!!! I guess I should have known not to hire him when I saw a baseball bat in his office, and after I looked at his website with another lawyer Fred he was working with at the time, they had the exactly the same timeline of background as far as schooling and other things which would be impossible. Point is, I've been in constant unimaginable pain since December 16th, 1992...I guess this guy has absolutely no values, morals and certainly only cared about his lousy ⅓%...Seems since he's now some kind of big shot, you'd think he would have made things right..I know if I was a lawyer and Promised someone 10 million settlement and only got them a lousy 66 grand for more injuries I can even list here, MAJOR INJURIES, I would have made it right with that person, so my karma would be clear! Obviously he never gave a damn and basically ruined my life! Thanks so much Barry Eichen......

I had a bad accident back in June of 2015. My dad knows Barry. I have to say he is a great person. I was unsatisfied with some things that were happening with a previous lawyer and he made sure everything was fixed and I was satisfied. My lawyer Edward McElroy is great he answers emails in a timely matter even on weekends. I know they probably used to get annoyed with me calling all the time Lol. But I was just curious to what is going on with my case. Nicole, Ed's secretary is great. She always responds back to my emails in a timely matter as well and even checks up on things with me from time to time. Barry recently became my mother and cousins Lawyer do to a bad accident they were involved in as well. I would highly recommend this firm. Thanks guys :)

Mr. Eichen handled a motorcycle accident for me in 2002, as well as various other cases since that time. I have permanent injuries from that accident and he was able to resolve my case for the full policy limits and get me compensation as quickly as possible. I would highly recommend his firm.

Barry Eichen has handled several auto cases for me and I have had excellent results. His office staff always answered my questions and he always made himself available to speak with me.
