With more than 39 years of experience as a workers’ compensation practitioner, John P. Beirne takes his commitment to his clients well beyond the courtroom.  The defense attorney prides himself on providing his clients with the best possible protection of their rights under the workers’ compensation program, and works closely with employers to implement procedures to reduce costs and mitigate future claims and liabilities.  Focusing his practice primarily on government entities, his client list includes Hudson County, North Bergen Township, North Hudson Fire and Rescue, as well as many Boards of Education.

John was recently honored by the Hudson County Bar Association (HCBA) as the HCBA 2019 Workers’ Compensation Lawyer of the Year.  One of four attorneys honored at the 2019 HCBA Awards Dinner, John was presented the Award by the Honorable Peter F. Bariso, Jr.  John launched his legal career handling workers’ compensation cases, negligence matters and real estate closings, with an emphasis on defense work for insurance carriers and self-insureds.  He began specializing exclusively in workers’ compensation defense work in 1989, and later took the initiative to gain considerable in-house counsel training to round-out his already extensive experience.  Today his caseload includes dealing with complex cases involving pension and Social Security offsets, third-party lien credits, and total disability  issues.

Committed to serving the community as well as his clients, John also taps his deep understanding of the inner workings of governmental entities and their budgetary concerns by donating his time as a member of the Lyndhurst Planning Board and Rent Leveling Board, as well as his parish finance council.  As a township commissioner in Lyndhurst for four years, his responsibilities included overseeing the department of public works.
