Welcome To Clark Law Firm, PC

Top New Jersey personal injury and accident case lawyers here to protect your rights.


Information on the Pine Barrens Class Action Settlement >

Gerald H. Clark, Esq. is an accomplished trial attorney and the principal of the Clark Law Firm, PC, a prominent personal injury firm. The practice serves the entire state of New Jersey and New York, with local law offices in Belmar, Newark, Rutherford, and Surf City. While we only accept a small number of select cases with strong facts, we screen many cases each year and put significant resources and dedication into each matter that we accept.

The Clark Law Firm, PC handles all types of serious personal injury and accident cases, with a focus on automobile crashes, workplace injuries, construction accidents, fall down, and wrongful death injury cases.   This top New Jersey law firm also handles commercial litigation, consumer fraud, business interruption insurance coverage, and class action cases.

Gerald Clark and his team of hand-picked professionals have obtained some of the largest verdicts and settlements in the State of New Jersey.   Clark is known for achieving million-dollar results in difficult matters where others concluded there could be no recovery.  In one case that was passed over by a large personal injury law firm, Clark tried the case to verdict and recovered $1.2 million for a deserving worker that was injured when a trench collapsed on him.  The insurance company appealed the case to the Supreme Court where Clark prevailed in establishing new law making it harder for contractors that disregard safety rules from blaming the injured worker.

In another injury case, Clark achieved a $2.520 million recovery for a deserving worker who fell from a ladder.  A Superior Court Judge reviewing the matter wrote, that because of  his “zealous advocacy,” Clark obtained “a substantial recovery for an injured worker where another large personal injury law firm and major insurance carrier concluded there was no third party liability.” *

Clark Law Firm team members are known for standing up for people who have been injured and mistreated by large corporations and insurance companies.   For example, on behalf of an injured worker, the firm filed a lawsuit against a multi-national billion-dollar engineering corporation alleging it mismanaged safety on a Turnpike construction project.  A large law firm for the company sent Clark a threat letter claiming the case was frivolous and demanded it be withdrawn, or they would seek sanctions against Clark and the injured worker.  Clark and his team did not back down.   They comforted and reassured the distressed worker and his family.  This top NJ personal injury law firm battled these powerful forces for over four years.  They successfully fought off several motions to have the case thrown out of court.  Clark and his team went on to prove at trial the company mismanaged safety on the project, achieved a $2.579 million jury verdict, and ultimately recovered over $3 million for the deserving worker.*

In another case, Clark Law Firm achieved a nearly $3 million jury verdict in a matter where the insurance company never offered more than $150,000 to settle.  Clark and his team fought off the appeal and ultimately recovered the jury award for this deserving worker.

Through individual victories, we are able to change dangerous behavior in the world, one case at a time.

Numerous Judges have commented on Clark’s ability and achievements.*  One judge commented on Clark’s work on a case as “over and above and beyond” the call of duty and “tremendous.” State v. Harris, FO-1358202B (N.J. Superior Court, Oct. 2, 2002).   In a wrongful death case, a judge commented Clark did, “exceptional work…‘Counsel achieved a tremendous result.’ He did. It was clever lawyering, and he did an excellent job.” Estate of Mendonca v. DaSilva, 2013 N.J.Super. Lexis 395, 3-5 (App.Div. 2013).   A judge on a house explosion case commented, “[T]his was a highly complex matter with numerous issues…the results obtained were excellent. Counsel for the plaintiffs have an excellent reputation and handled this case with exceptional skill.” Estate of Lowen v. Southern Gas Company, UNN-L-1292-17, Hrg. Trans. (N.J. Superior Court, Dec. 11, 2017)  A judge overseeing the resolution of a case involving two painters who were injured said, ”[T]here’s no doubt you did a tremendous job for your clients in this case…” Estate of DsSouza v. PSE&G, MID-L-6155-14, Hrg. Trans. (N.J. Superior Court, Mar. 2, 2018) Another Superior Court judge noted, “Mr. Clark is a highly skilled and competent plaintiff’s trial lawyer…” Roll v. Accent Construction, Inc., MID-L-1962-15 Hrg. Trans. (N.J. Superior Court, September 29, 2017)

The skilled personal injury lawyers of the Clark Law Firm are community-oriented, client-focused, and multilingual, with fluency in Spanish and Portuguese. In 2006 Gerald Clark was named in the New Jersey Law Journal‘s “40 Under 40” feature which acknowledges 40 distinguished New Jersey lawyers under the age of 40. Clark has also been designated a “Super Lawyer” by Thompson Reuters every year since 2013.  He has also been named a “Top 100 Trial Lawyer” by the National Trial Lawyers Association and a “Top 100 Litigation Lawyer in the State of New Jersey” by the American Society of Legal Advocates.

Clark Law firm did a great job for me on my NJ car accident case. The insurance company tried to get me to take much less than my case was worth.
