John P. Beirne 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. Born and raised in Jersey City, John became a member of the bar in 1977 after attending Seton Hall Law School.
As a workers’ compensation practitioner with more than 40 years of experience, John takes his commitment to his clients well beyond the courtroom. He 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. His extensive experience in the field allows him to successfully represent Firm clients in 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.
