Gerald H. Clark is Certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Civil Trial Attorney, a distinction held by less than 3% of New Jersey attorneys. His practice concentrates on personal injury, commercial litigation and class actions. He played a key role in bringing about the settlement of an unprecedented consumer fraud class action lawsuit against Cooper Tire & Rubber Company, a settlement which is valued between $1 billion and $3 billion to consumers.
In July 2006, Gerald Clark was listed in the New Jersey Law Journal’s “40 Under 40” feature which acknowledges 40 New Jersey lawyers under 40 years of age distinguished in the practice of law. For his work representing personal injury, products liability and accident victims, Mr. Clark was named a “Rising Stars Super Lawyer” from 2006-2012 and a “Super Lawyer” every year since 2013. In 2011 he was included in the National Trial Lawyers “Top 40 under 40” membership for his “superior qualifications, trial results, and leadership as a young lawyer under the age of 40.” He is a Member of the Board of Governors of the New Jersey Association for Justice.
Gerald Clark is a Member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Among his recent achievements include a $2.520 million recovery for a worker who was turned down by a large law firm, a $3,000,000 verdict for a worker who fell in a hole, and a $6.250 construction injury settlement arising from transmission tower fall.
Gerald Clark and his firm represents deserving clients on a contingency basis. This way many people who otherwise could not afford legal services are able to access the court system. When safety rules are broken, the public is endangered. Clark believes that by standing up for people whose lives are turned upside down because of safety rule violations, and holding wrongdoers accountable (who are usually covered by insurance anyway), the community as a whole is made safer.
