Law Firm Overview

John Blume began handling personal injury matters in 1963, four years after he joined his father, Charles, in his Newark office. In 40 years of practice he has led Blume, Goldfaden and developed the firm into one with an outstanding record of achievements. In a May 8, 2000 article, The National Law Journal has reported that the firm is "the most successful medical malpractice plaintiff's firm in New Jersey."

Since the New Jersey Law Journal began publishing a list of the top personal injury and wrongful death verdicts and settlements, Blume Goldfaden has consistently been recognized for results which include in the last five years alone, more than 50 settlements and verdicts of $425,000 to $46.7 million.

During the past 5 years alone, and including only those matters where there have been recoveries in excess of $350,000, our attorneys have obtained more than 320 million dollars in significant verdicts and settlements for our clients in cases of medical malpractice, product liability, wrongful death, wrongful birth, auto injuries, workplace accidents and other serious matters of personal injury. We have also secured tens of millions of dollars more in recoveries for hundreds of clients who have had less significant claims and injuries.
