Attorney John Mattiacci is an experienced personal injury lawyer practicing in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. John is known as an aggressive trial lawyer who has recovered tens of millions of dollars for his clients. He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Fewer than 1% of all attorneys in the United States are members, and membership is limited to lawyers who have recovered million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for their clients.  John has also been named to the list of Pennsylvania Super Lawyers and was previously named to the list of Pennsylvania Rising Stars by Super Lawyers, an honor granted to fewer than 2.5% of the attorneys in the state.

John was also nominated by other attorneys and judges to receive a pre-eminent “AV” rating through the Martindale-Hubbell peer review process.  This rating, the highest possible, is a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.

John’s approach to the practice of law is simple, obtain the best possible result in each case.  To do so, he treats his clients like members of the family and provides them with the care and attention they deserve.  He returns phone calls promptly, keeps his clients informed of key developments, and explains the legal process and answers questions so each client knows what to expect throughout the case.  At the time same, John fights tooth and nail against the defense and will gladly go to trial if an insurance company is not willing to pay the fair settlement value of a case.  This dedication to his clients and willingness to go to trial has allowed him to recover significant verdicts and settlements in a range of cases involving construction accidents, car accidents, bus accidents, slips and falls, and defective products, just to name a few.

John fights for the underdog. He finds great satisfaction in being an accident lawyer that represents an injured client against a large insurance company or powerful corporation. In life, the balance of power is so often in favor of big business, but John’s experience, drive and skills as an accident lawyer in Pennsylvania and across New Jersey allow him to level the playing field and use the law to force wrongdoers to pay fair compensation to victims of negligence.

John is married to attorney Laura Carlin Mattiacci, a lawyer who represents employees in employment discrimination cases. They reside in New Jersey with their four sons.
