Over the last twenty years, Harrington and Lombardi, LLP has provided legal advice and representation to insurance carriers and their insureds in connection with a variety of claims and suits throughout the state of New Jersey. Our practice areas include First-Party and Third Party liability claims as well as insurance coverage matters. Our 85 years of collective experience comprises defending all personal and commercial lines including asbestos, lead, construction defect, environmental, products liability, advertising and personal injury, extra-contractual liability, auto, premises, construction, architects and engineers, fraud investigations, subrogation and professional liability. The firm regularly advises clients on issues of policy interpretation and the “duty to defend” on a wide array of insurance policies. When appropriate, our firm litigates coverage issues at trial and at the appellate level.
Our extensive litigation and trial experience is matched by our ability to efficiently resolve matters outside of the courtroom, including through mediation and arbitration. We strive to find, understand, and use sources of leverage in order to achieve the best possible outcomes. The firm prides itself on its ability to promptly analyze issues, risks, and potential exposures. From claim inception to resolution, we empower you to make informed decisions and collaborate with you to develop a litigation plan that is both effective and mindful of your bottom line.
The small size of our firm is a strength. It allows us to be familiar with the nuances of each case, both big and small, as well as provide fast responses to the questions of our claims handlers. Our small size also allows us to maintain affordable billing rates. Despite our size, we handle cases throughout the state of New Jersey. We believe that we are universally respected in those counties where we practice most frequently by both the bar and particularly the judiciary. The firm has developed a reputation as a premier litigation firm. Our reputation for thorough trial preparation and the ability to successfully litigate cases often results in reduced settlements for our clients. We take particular pride in our reputation for good service, communication and cost-effective problem solving. Our clients have included Penn America Insurance Company, United National Insurance Company, Travelers Insurance Company, Lincoln General Insurance Company, St. Paul Insurance Company, Philadelphia Contributionship, MetLife Auto & Home and Metropolitan Property and Casualty Insurance Company, among others.
