Strauss Law Office, A Small Firm With Big Results


WESTFIELD, NJ -For close to 30 years, clients have turned to Jeffrey Strauss, Esq. for direct and personal service, expert support and detailed attention. A trial and litigation attorney, Strauss owns and runs Strauss Law Offices in Westfield, specializing in medical malpractice, burns and product liability, construction/workplace and motor vehicle accidents, wrongful death and personal injury.   

Since Strauss Law is a boutique firm, clients are guaranteed one-on-one personal attention from Strauss himself. “Larger firms tend to pass clients and cases along to an associate,” said Strauss. “Here, clients deal with me directly. I put a lot of time and attention into each case and I know every detail of their case inside and out.”

Additionally, Strauss has an extensive medical background enabling him to read and understand medical records as well as understand the process. “I knew from when I first started out that I wanted to deal with medical legal issues,” said Strauss who earned his undergraduate degree in zoology and physiology from Rutgers University before going on to pursue graduate coursework in immunology, endocrinology and biochemistry. He went on to attend graduate school at Boston University providing laboratory teaching assistance in human anatomy and earning his master of science degree health sciences-applied anatomy and physiology.

Knowing the ins and outs of the medical field makes what Strauss brings to courtroom rare and invaluable. “There are the occasional physician lawyers but most do not practice law,” he said, adding, “I am not going to struggle over the words and the process. I have no problems conversing with physicians and understanding the what, how and why.”

Strauss followed up his time at Boston University by enrolling in the Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, MI where he was invited to join the Law Review during his first year before going on to serve as articles editor. He began his law career with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of General Counsel in New York City, working on Medicare appeals until being admitted to the New Jersey Bar in June 1986. He then associated with law firms specializing in substantial injury cases due to medical malpractice, product liability, industrial and construction accidents and serious car or truck crashes. In October 2012, Strauss opened his own practice in Westfield.  

In addition to New Jersey, Strauss is a member of the New York and Washington D.C. bars. He was admitted to practice in the New Jersey Federal Courts, the Federal District Court in the Southern District of New York, U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court and has successfully tried cases throughout New Jersey and in New York.   Devoted to litigation, Strauss has been counsel on numerous high-profile cases over the course of his career.

He served as co-counsel on a $21 million jury verdict – one of the largest in the nation at the time–involving inflicted brain injuries to an infant by foster parents and worked to resolve a New York medical malpractice matter at mediation, yielding a $3 million settlement. Most recently he obtained a $1.3 million jury verdict in a medical malpractice case in Essex County, NJ. Strauss has also been involved in numerous appellate cases in New Jersey’s state and federal courts and the New York Supreme Court - Appellate Division.

In 1992, Strauss was designated by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Certified Civil Trial Attorney and has been consecutively recertified over the past 21 years. Additionally, he served as co-chair of the New Jersey State Bar Association's Medical Malpractice Subcommittee and is currently a member of the Union County Bar Association, a Master in the Richard J. Hughes Inns of Court of Union County and a member of both the American Association for Justice and the New Jersey Association for Justice. He has been selected as an A-V Rated Lawyer (top tier-pre-eminent, 5/5 rated) by and was also named a ‘Super Lawyer’ in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. Furthermore, in 2013, he was awarded the “Lead Counsel” rating by the Lead Counsel Review Board.

“I am compassionate for my clients. When they explain their problems I focus on what the issue is and whether I believe I can help them. I have been practicing a long time so I hope to provide my clients with a sense of assurance and confidence in the advice.” said Strauss, noting that he is always upfront and honest with his clients. “I never ever build clients up or offer false hope only to let them down later in the case.”

Strauss Law Offices are located at 208 Lenox Avenue – Suite 160, in Westfield. For more information, visit, email or call 908-228-2695.
