John C. Grady
Hi, I'm John C. Grady, I'm a certified civil trial lawyer with 30 years of experience representing individuals and major corporations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania state and federal trial and appellate courts. Litigation can be costly so I also champion clients' interests in pre-suit or alternative dispute resolution forums and counsel preventative measures to limit or avoid litigation exposure.
In my thirtieth year of practice as a trial lawyer I am continuing to embrace new techniques while refining those that have served me well in effectively shaping and presenting disputed matters to accomplish succesful results for my clients. Whether engaging in pre-litigation negotiations, alternative dispute resolution proceedings, trying a case before a judge or jury, or arguing appellate matters, I have an ability to digest complicated factual and legal issues and convert them into a compelling and persuasive presentation. In both private and public practice I have been effective in handling litigation matters including catastrophic personal injury, products liability, public entity liability and immunity, and insurance fraud. My insurance fraud and coverage experience is across multiple product lines including commercial, automobile, life, disability, marine, and health care. I have played a central role as an advocate in the pathfinding cases under the New Jersey Insurance Fraud Prevention Act while a Deputy Attorney General for the State of New Jersey and continue to apply those precedents on behalf of my insurance carrier clients. I have supervised and trained both attorneys and investigators regarding the identification of insurance fraud and the strategic presentation of such cases.
