Attorney Norberto Garcia Featured in New Jersey Law Journal Article
Norberto Garcia, a personal injury attorney at Blume Forte Fried Zerres & Molinari in Chatham, NJ was recently featured in an article published by the New Jersey Law Journal. A fellow attorney from the firm told the publication that Mr. Garcia has taken 100 cases to trial that have received a verdict, securing large awards for his clients.
Mr. Garcia is the former president of the Hudson County Bar Association, a position he currently holds with the New Jersey State Bar Foundation. He is known for his service to the community. Most of his time out of the courtroom is focused on tutoring students in high school and in law school.
Garcia’s Proudest Accomplishments
Mr. Garcia has a passion for helping others, especially those who are in a time of need. He has taken on cases that other attorneys have turned down or backed away from, only to obtain successful outcomes for those clients. He attributed the success of these challenging cases to the in-depth investigative work of the firm, the firm’s far-reaching resources, and careful discovery.
When asked to name one person who has played a major role in his career, Mr. Garcia named Peter Vazquez. Vazquez hired Mr. Garcia at Blume Forte Fried Zerres & Molinari in 1995 when the firm was known as Blume Vazquez. Mr. Vazquez went on to become an Essex County criminal judge. Mr. Garcia said Judge Vazquez taught him the following:
“When you come from a diverse background, you have to work twice as hard to get ahead. You take nothing for granted. He taught me that there will be professional setbacks – you deal with them and move on. All growth comes from some kind of pain. It is how you deal with defeats that determines whether you come out a better, stronger person.”
Mr. Garcia’s Track Record
Mr. Garcia’s track record and accomplishments proceed throughout the New Jersey legal community. Aside from serving as the President of the New Jersey State Bar Foundation, he is also a trustee of the same organization and serves as the co-chair of the New Jersey State Bar Association’s Diversity Committee.
Mr. Garcia was certified as a civil trial attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court in 2001. He is a member of the Civil Trial Bar Association’s executive committee of the New Jersey State Bar Association. Mr. Garcia was named a trustee for the New Jersey State Bar Association earlier this year.
