Bio

Fusco is a skilled legal advocate who has a singular focus when representing his clients— results. The numbers speak for themselves. In his first decade of practice he recovered more than $30,000,000 for his clients.

An honors graduate of Lehigh University, he triple-majored in Literature, History and Journalism. While attending Seton Hall University School of Law, he had the opportunity to intern for three different judges, including: a State Trial Court Judge in the Superior Court of New Jersey - Essex Vicinage; a Federal Trial Court Judge in the District of New Jersey; and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of New Jersey. These experiences working for such talented jurists made him confident that he wanted to represent clients in the courtroom as a trial attorney.

Fusco became Certified by the Board of Attorney Certification as a Certified Civil Trial Attorney at age 32, the youngest age possible. In 2016, 2017 and 2019, he made the Top 100 jury verdicts list for the State of New Jersey. He also has been recognized as a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers from 2015 to 2021.

He specializes his practice on helping injured victims of motor vehicle collisions, unsafe premises and dangerous products. A Shareholder, he helps supervise the automobile practice for the firm. While he has represented clients in all 21 counties in New Jersey, he practices primarily in Middlesex, Somerset and Hunterdon Counties.

He is the currently the President-Elect of the Middlesex County Trial Lawyers Association. With that organization, he has organized their annual charity golf outing, raising tens of thousands of dollars for various local charitable organizations. He also volunteers as a regular lecturer and panelist for local student groups.

A technophile, he leverages every aspect of new advancements in technology to help his client’s cases. From visually stunning demonstrative exhibits in the courtroom to using software to make the client experience better, he helps keep Levinson Axelrod, P.A. at the cutting edge.

In his spare time he loves traveling with his wife, photography, taking the dog for walks and golfing.

"Going into this I always thought their insurance company would treat me fairly. I didn’t realize how much they try to make it seem like the accident was your own fault and you're a bad person just for being injured. Boy am I glad I found you and Levinson Axelrod! Thank you for being patient with me and all of your hard work on my case."

-HY

"I couldn’t believe how you went after their defense doctor like that -- you caught him in lie after lie. From that moment on I knew we were going to win!"
