CHRISTOPHER DIGIROLAMO is the Managing Partner at Maggiano, DiGirolamo, Lizzi P.C. and is admitted to practice law in the State and Federal Courts of the State New Jersey, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court. His practice focuses on auto accidents, construction accidents, workers compensation and product liability.
Mr. DiGirolamo has protected the rights of victims of car accidents, fall downs, construction accidents, on the job injuries, represented the men, women and families that make up the labor force in New Jersey and has helped union workers for over twenty-two years in various types of litigation including construction accidents, product defects, dangerous workplaces, employment disputes and most notably in workers compensation claims. He has achieved a number of multi-million dollar verdicts and recoveries for workplace accident victims and their families, including serving as co-counsel in the largest personal injury recovery ($101 million) in a construction accident in United States history.
He has dedicated his practice to the protection of the rights and benefits that every worker is entitled to and has built a strong reputation based on success in the courtroom and achieving the results that his clients deserve. There is no case or claim too large or small. He handles every case with the same tenacity and determination with one goal: protecting the rights of the injured worker. DiGirolamo is the grandson of a coal miner and steel mill immigrant who died of lung disease in the late 1960’s, before the industry and those running the mills were forced to be accountable for the dangerous conditions they created and exposed workers to for a generation.
The strength and drive that continues to motivate me 20 years after beginning my practice, comes from the responsibility bestowed upon me by my clients. The effort to build a bond of unconditional trust with each new client focuses my determination to most effectively represent each injured individual without ever tiring of the challenge.
His aggressive style has earned him numerous awards and recognition from his peers both in New Jersey and nationally, and he considers this his greatest professional compliment. He has been chosen year after year by his peers and colleagues as one of the best litigators in New Jersey as well as in the United States.
