About Levinson Axelrod, P.A.
Levinson Axelrod, P.A. has been fighting for victims, workers, and families across New Jersey for more than 80 years.

Today, our firm is led by Jacob’s son, Richard J. Levinson and has grown into one of the state’s largest injury-focused plaintiffs’ firms. Since our founding, we have remained a family-operated firm.
In our efforts to assist as many clients as possible, members of our firm are fluent in English, Spanish, German, Greek, Russian, and Portuguese.

Award recipients are often determined through rigorous surveying, peer reviews, research into case results and trial performance, and more. Many awards recipients are often determined through what their adversaries and judges have said about them, indicating that these awards are not about likeability, but legal ability.
