About Levinson Axelrod, P.A.
80 Years of Quality Representation
At Levinson Axelrod, P.A., we have been preparing for your case for 80 years. Founded in 1939 by two attorneys, one of whom was Jacob Levinson, we are dedicated to fighting on behalf of injured individuals. Today, the firm is led by Jacob’s son—Richard J. Levinson. Since its founding and growth into a 25+ lawyer team across nine offices, Levinson Axelrod remains a family-run law firm.
Our work in personal injury law began when our firm started representing injured factory workers in the area. The attorneys of the firm recognized that the communities of Central New Jersey, including Middlesex, Monmouth, and Somerset Counties, needed strong personal injury representation to protect their interests and ensure they were taken care of after accidents and negligence.
Today, our law firm has nine offices in cities throughout New Jersey to help injured and wronged individuals statewide:
In our ongoing efforts to provide assistance for as many clients as possible, we’re proud to say that members of our law firm are fluent in English, Spanish, German, Greek, Hungarian, Russian, and Portuguese.

In fact, our clients never have to write us a check—if they receive an award, they simply receive a check from the insurance company.

Legal awards are more than votes of approval or popularity—they are a testament to the legal skill and ethical practices of attorneys who receive them. 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.
Certified in Civil Trial Law & Workers’ Compensation
Another distinction of our firm is that all 10 of our active partners have been certified either in Civil Trial Law or Workers’ Compensation Law in the state of New Jersey. Certification is achieved by only 3% of practicing lawyers, and it is easy to see why—the certification process rigorously evaluates an attorney’s trial experience, performance, and knowledge.
Performance reviews are conducted by the judges before whom an attorney has appeared, as well as the adversaries that have worked against our lawyers. It also includes an extensive written examination that tests an attorney’s expertise in his or her practice area. In the end, when an attorney has achieved certification, it means their opponents and previous judges acknowledged and approved of their legal expertise.
