David Mazie is an acclaimed New Jersey trial lawyer and a senior partner in Mazie Slater Katz & Freeman, LLC, a prominent New Jersey law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims of medical malpractice, car accidents, truck accidents, products liability, personal injury, professional liability, complex commercial litigation, class actions, birth injury, brain damage, burn injuries, spinal cord injuries, and wrongful death. In 2013, the New Jersey Law Journal named Mazie Slater as its Personal Injury Litigation Department of the Year and described our many victories as “remarkable.”
Mr. Mazie’s adversaries are acutely aware that he will take his cases to trial if they do not settle for what he demands. In fact, he is the holder of the top 2 personal injury jury verdicts in New Jersey history, and is the only attorney in New Jersey to have ever obtained a jury verdict in excess of $100 million, such as the landmark $166 million dollar verdict against the State of New Jersey’s Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) which is the largest personal injury verdict in New Jersey history, and the landmark $135 million liquor liability verdict against Aramark which is the second largest personal injury verdict in New Jersey history. His other landmark achievements include a $33.9 million New Jersey products liability settlement which is the largest product liability recovery in New Jersey history, an $18.5 million New Jersey birth injury malpractice jury verdict which is the largest birth injury recovery in New Jersey history, a $15.75 million New Jersey accounting malpractice settlement, a $12 million NJ medical malpractice/wrongful death jury verdict, and a confidential settlement in the landmark case of Ravin Sarasohn vs. Lowenstein Sandler involving claims of unfair competition by one law firm against another law firm.
The New Jersey Law Journal named Mr. Mazie as its Lawyer of the Year, and in 2013 he was named by Best Lawyers in America to its Lawyer of the Year list. Super Lawyers Magazine has described Mr. Mazie as a “Warrior” who is “relentless, aggressive and creative.” Mr. Mazie is routinely quoted in newspapers and magazines, and regularly makes television appearances regarding his cases.
