Garry R. Salomon is a personal injury trial attorney certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney. He is a founding member and serves as the managing partner of Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. Garry Salomon’s main areas of concentration include all areas of personal injury law. During his 35 years of practicing law he has successfully represented thousands of clients. He most particularly enjoys the courtroom environment and concentrates on bringing his cases to the trial stage. He is quoted as saying, “An insurance company will only consider paying fair and just compensation only if they see that the plaintiff is ready to let a jury decide the case; however, if an insurance company is unwilling to deal fairly with the plaintiff, then I trust a jury to decide the outcome.”

Garry Salomon is the author of a book entitled “The Consumer’s Guide to New Jersey Personal Injury Claims.” Although the book is available for purchase through amazon.com, free copies are available upon calling the office. The book’s purpose is to serve as a guide for those who have recently been involved in a car accident or were injured due to a fall. The 141 page guide includes a glossary of definitions of terms and words commonly used in personal injury cases and contains a handy appendix including the New Jersey Police Accident Report Grid, the full section of the law pertaining to the Limitation on Lawsuit Threshold, also known as the Limited Tort Option, jury instructions pertaining to pre-existing medical conditions, prior injuries, wrongful death jury instructions and the Court Rule regarding New Jersey’s legal contingency fees. The book is also available in Korean and Polish.

Garry Salomon has been appointed, for the past consecutive 15 years, to serve as a member of the Board of Governors of the New Jersey Association for Justice. He has served as Chairman and program chair for New Jersey Association for Justice Trial Academy where he has lectured on “The Art of Direct Examination.” He also has lectured at New Jersey Association for Justice’s annual Boardwalk Convention. He founded and acted as moderator and Co-Chairman of the 2000-2013 annual New Jersey Association for Justice’s “Litigation at Sunrise” Boardwalk Seminar. On February 23, 2012, Garry Salomon delivered a sample closing argument for verbal threshold cases to an education seminar given to over 100 members of NJAJ. In April of 2013 he lectured trial lawyers about pre-trial deposition techniques.

On February 25, 2006 Garry Salomon presented a lecture to New Jersey Association for Justice on “Summation: Bringing it Home.” With the seminar the New Jersey Lawyer published an article by Mr. Salomon with the same title.
