As an experienced trial lawyer, Marc A. Chase handles civil litigation in numerous areas of the law, with a concentration in accidents, personal injury matters, divorce, custody, alimony, child support and related litigation.
Marc joined his former firm, Chase & Chase, Esqs., in 1978 , working as a law clerk, then entered law school and continued to work at the firm. Following graduation and admission to the bar in 1982, he became an associate, handling a full caseload and trial work and soon thereafter, became a full partner. After 37 years with the firm, Marc left and opened his new office in Ringwood, where Marc and his wife now reside.
Marc has been an adjunct professor of Family Law and Legal Research and Writing at Fairleigh Dickinson University since 2005.
Marc argued numerous cases before the Appellate Division and before the Supreme Court of New Jersey regarding significant legal issues in family law and personal injury matters.
Marc has been involved in a number of notable cases. One individual he represented, was a female, nurse-educator whom a doctor and co-worker unintentionally injured. Although the injured client’s damages were not life threatening, Marc’s effective advocacy convinced the jury that she was entitled to a substantial recovery for her pain and suffering. The jury awarded Marc’s client $1.5 million; a verdict which had an actual value of $1.75 million.
Marc continues to represent clients in all types of personal injury matters on a contingency fee basis. In the event there is no recovery, the client pays no legal fees.
