practice areas


Workers’ Compensation defense and litigation is all we do.  This focus means our attorneys can offer legal advice that is practical and born from decades of experience and countless trials and appeals in the area of workers’ compensation.  Pietras Saracino Smith & Meeks, LLP has literally rewritten the law in workers’ compensation in reported cases such as Jumpp v. City of Ventnor, 177 N.J. 470 (2003) and Stroka v. United Airlines, 364 N.J.Super. 333 (App. Div. 2003), certif. den., 179 N.J. 313 (2004), and our trial experience enables us to better anticipate the reactions of judges throughout the State of New Jersey.

We represent employers, insurance carriers, and third-party administrators in every aspect of a workers’ compensation claim before the New Jersey Division of Workers’ Compensation, Superior Court of New Jersey Appellate Division, and Supreme Court of New Jersey.  Our firm has regular court lists in every district office in the State of New Jersey.  Our attorneys are also available to assist in claims reviews and provide in-house seminars on innovative strategies to prevent and resolve workers’ compensation claims efficiently and effectively.
