Andrew A. Fraser, Partner with Sussex County law firm, Laddey Clark & Ryan LLP and Leader of the firm’s Personal Injury Practice Group, has been recertified as a New Jersey Civil Trial Attorney. He was first certified as a Civil Trial Attorney in 2002.
The certification is earned by only a very small percentage of attorneys, approximately 2%. Of 41,000 practicing attorneys in New Jersey, approximately 100 are certified as Civil Trial Attorneys. Fraser is one of only fourteen Certified Civil Trial Attorneys in Sussex County.
A New Jersey attorney who has been certified by the Supreme Court as a New Jersey Certified Civil Trial Attorney is a member in good standing of the New Jersey bar for at least five years, been favorably evaluated by judges and other attorneys familiar with his or her work, fulfilled ongoing continuing legal education requirements, passed a written examination covering various aspects of trial practice, and demonstrated a significant level of experience in civil trial law.
Fraser is the Co-Practice Leader of Laddey, Clark & Ryan’s Personal Injury practice, which has been recognized as one of the leading practices in the state. The firm has had the largest automobile accident verdict in New Jersey, the largest product liability verdict in New Jersey involving a defective elevator, and the largest personal injury verdict in both Sussex and Morris Counties. Fraser himself has been inducted into the New Jersey Law Journal Hall of Fame for Personal Injury Trial Lawyers, named among the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in New Jersey by The National Trial Lawyer Association, and has been consistently listed as a New Jersey Super Lawyer in Personal Injury since 2006. While Laddey, Clark & Ryan is based in Sussex County, the Personal Injury practice has earned a national reputation, notably in the area of elevator failure cases, and permanent spinal damage including disc herniations caused by auto crashes, slip and falls or elevator malfunctions, including the largest verdicts against elevator companies for negligence resulting in injury.

Whether it’s a motor vehicle collision, a fall or a dangerous elevator, our attorneys protect and preserve the legal rights of our clients. For the past 30 years, our team has been building a reputation of integrity and successful results, as well as zealous advocacy and compassion. More time spent on fewer cases is the firm’s model.
