Marlton, New Jersey (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
The New Jersey personal injury lawyers at Console & Hollawell P.C. are proud to announce that Richard Hollawell has been named a 2012 “Top Attorney” in south Jersey by SJ Magazine for the second year in a row. The award, presented to Hollawell in the Trial Law category, speaks to his tireless efforts in the courtroom. Just as in 2011, Hollawell, a South Jersey personal injury attorney since 2001, spread the praise around his experienced legal team, choosing to focus on the hard work they put in to building cases for trial.
“To be recognized as a leader in your field is a great honor,” he said, “especially in the trial area where you’re helping accident victims obtain the compensation they deserve. This award isn’t about just me, though. Creating an effective strategy at trial takes a lot of hard work and preparation and a team that can work well together. Without a dedicated support staff behind me, I can’t be as effective.”
Over the past 11 years, readers in south Jersey have come to recognize SJ Magazine as a growing authority when it comes to pointing out top professionals in a variety of industries, including healthcare and law. By using a peer voting system, the publication has built a solid reputation as an information hub for who’s viewed as the best of the best from inside each skilled profession.
Hollawell received his award in the Trial Law category on the back of a series of high profile wins against large insurance companies. In one instance, he was the lone counselor representing his client against a team of six defense attorneys. After a heated trial, the attorneys for the defendants approached Hollawell with a settlement offer just minutes before the jury returned a verdict. The resulting seven-figure settlement not only compensated the firm’s client, but won a measure of justice for them.
“A well-thought out strategy beats a team of expensive lawyers every time,” says Hollawell. “At the end of the day, we’re fighting to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions and help our clients get back on their feet. We’d always like to avoid trials, but if we have to go to court, we’ll do everything to ensure we win.”
Since 1994, the attorneys at Console & Hollawell P.C. have worked to obtain tens of millions of dollars for accident victims across Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Their tireless efforts have helped more than 5,000 clients pay medical bills and replace lost wages from a host of tragic events ranging from auto accidents to instances of medical malpractice.
