Curtis B. Gilfillan

Englewood, New Jersey

I have 17 years of experience litigating personal injury actions in the metro area, with a particular emphasis on complex matters involving serious injuries in New York State and the Five Boroughs. In addition to a very successful track record in taking cases to verdict and handling related appeals, I bring a unique perspective to handling plaintiff personal injury claims and lawsuits as I have worked extensively for insurance companies in defending such cases over the course of my career. I am familiar with the types of issues that cause insurance companies to become concerned about your lawsuit and which can lead to large settlements, and as such, I can navigate your case through the Courts to its maximum potential. I am admitted to the State and Federal Courts in New York and New Jersey, and to the State Courts in Pennsylvania.
