Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    20%
    Auto accidents result in millions of injuries in the United States each year. Regardless of the cause, an auto accident can be devastating and life-altering. Many people are left to cope with the emotional distress wreaked by an accident, in addition to facing medical bills and loss of earnings. If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident, having an experienced attorney on your side can help you get the most compensation for your injuries.

  2. Defective and dangerous products
    20%
    Defects in the design, manufacturing or marketing of products result in thousands of injuries and deaths each year. Many of these injuries could have been avoided if appropriate safety and design measures were taken to ensure the quality of these products. If an unreasonably dangerous product has injured you or a loved one, you may be entitled to compensation from the product’s manufacturers, the product’s wholesaler, or the retailer or distributor who ultimately sold the product.

  3. Personal injury
    20%
    Accidents and injuries can strike when we least expect them, causing physical and emotional trauma and financial difficulties. The trial lawyers of Stampone Law handle a wide variety of personal injury and wrongful death matters including automobile and truck accidents, medical malpractice claims, premises liability claims, slip and fall accidents, product liability claims, construction accidents, liquor liability claims, and many other types personal injury matters.

  4. Slip and fall accident
    20%
    Property owners have a duty to keep their property fit for those who are on it. When they don’t, accidents happen, sometimes resulting in serious injuries and even death. Whether it’s public or private property, the owners, or if public, the governmental body, have a responsibility to make sure the property is safe. Negligent premises conditions can exist in just about every type of building or open space.The types of premises liability cases can be almost limitless.

  5. Wrongful death
    20%
    The pain and anguish felt by families when a loved one dies is immeasurable. A price cannot be put on a deceased loved ones head, but financial compensation is still needed to take care of unforeseen expenses such as medical bills, lost earning, and funeral arrangements. By filing a wrongful death claim against the negligent party, surviving family members can recover compensation to help cope with the unforeseen expenses and non-economic losses that often occur after a wrongful death.

Great attorney!
Joe and all the staff at Stampone really went above and beyond to make sure my legal matter was taken care of as quickly and as painless as possible. Joe has plenty of experience and it showed when I met with him to discuss my situation. He and his staff guided me through the process every step of the way so that i was never left in the dark about my case, and someone was always available to answer any questions I had whenever I called the office. I would absolutely recommend him and his staff to anyone seeking legal assistance. The office is easy to get to and parking is never an issue, unlike most lawyers in the city.

Best Personal Injury lawyer around!
I was 9 years old when I was injured in a Jet-ski accident down the shore in Wildwood, NJ. I am now 23 and to this day recall how courteous and sensitive Joe was to my situation. The settlement money Joe obtained on my behalf helped pay many of my college expenses. I can’t thank Joe and his staff enough for their positive role in my life.

Joe Stampone Great Lawyer, True Professional.
It’s hard for me to describe how gracious I am for Joe Stampone and his staff. I was injured and scared after being involved in a major car accident. After meeting with Joe I knew I was in good hands. Joe explained each aspect of my case (the good and the potentially bad) and referred me to a caring doctor. Joe and his staff kept me informed and handled my case with the utmost professionalism.  I would recommend Joe to anyone who is in need of a lawyer.
