Mr. Olkowitz has built his firm and his reputation on his unrelenting prosecution on behalf of the injured clients he has represented. When he was admitted to the bar, he had no client base. He does not come from a family of lawyers and is not politically connected. He had no union, corporate or other contacts when he was admitted to the bar. His present extensive practice, representing several hundreds of injured workers at any one time, was built solely through hard work and achieving the best results for all of his clients. Those clients then referred friends and relatives to him and his practice grew rapidly over the years.
As proof of his achievement, he was certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Workers Compensation attorney in 1999. He was named a “Super lawyer” by New Jersey Magazine every year since 2009. A Super lawyer is nominated and voted upon by fellow lawyers.
In fact, his skill was noted by former Director and Chief Judge of Workers Compensation, Hon. Mark Litowitz, who stated, “Mr. Olkowitz is one of a handful of the best lawyers in the State of New Jersey”.
His reputation was built through diligence and hard work. He is not afraid to accept extremely difficult and complex cases. Because of the reputation he has built over the years, many attorneys refer him the very complex and very difficult cases.
Just last month he was successful in obtaining total disability benefits for an injured worker on an occupational exposure claim which was denied by and fought by seventeen different insurance companies. After a long and difficult trial, the insurance carriers finally surrendered and awarded Mr. Olkowitz’ client total disability benefits. During the course of his career, Mr. Olkowitz has successfully litigated every conceivable type of compensation claim.
Workers Compensation Court is different from any other court system. To maximize your success you need an attorney who is intimately familiar with the system, not a lawyer who handles many different types of cases, which prevents that lawyer from becoming an expert in workers compensation. If you are injured on the job, you need Robert A. Olkowitz.
Mr. Olkowitz has also represented personal injury clients who suffered injuries in automobile accidents, slip and fall and other types of accidents. In 1986, the Supreme Court of New Jersey certified Mr. Olkowitz as a Civil Trial Attorney. He has also handled Social Security Appeals since 1994 and has been extremely successful.
