ichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP is one of the most successful plaintiff’s law firms in New Jersey. Led by name partners Barry Eichen, William Crutchlow, and Daryl Zaslow and with certified civil trial attorneys based in Edison, Toms River and Red Bank, the firm represents clients from across the state in various catastrophic injury, wrongful death, and medical malpractice matters. Since the firm’s inception, its lawyers have secured more than $750 million in favorable verdicts and settlements on behalf of their clients, and their successes in 2019 contributed largely to that impressive number. But the firm’s leaders acknowledge that client satisfaction is the constant and ultimate goal. “Many of our firm’s lawyers were raised in New Jersey and neighboring areas, and that familiarity is evident when anyone walks through our doors,” said Crutchlow, who has secured several millions of dollars for clients who have been seriously injured and also impacted by medical malpractice and defective products. “Our ability to almost instantly connect with our clients—many of whom come to us by referral—is what fuels us to fight.” From high-profile automobile tragedies and class actions to birth injuries, the firm’s lawyers have a proven track record of excellence by securing record-setting results and maximum compensation for their clients. The firm’s lawyers represented James McNair, a comedian and mentor to actor Tracy Morgan, who was killed during a collision with a truck driven by a WalMart employee in 2014. The tragedy on the NJ Turnpike made national headlines and the confidential, out-of-court settlement with Wal-Mart was recovered by Zaslow on behalf of McNair’s family in 2015. Additionally, Zaslow achieved a $5.5 million landmark verdict on behalf of a child who sustained a birth injury to her brachial plexus—one of the largest ever obtained in an Erb’s Palsy or shoulder dystocia case. The firm has also demonstrated courtroom prowess by representing local governments in major actions. For example, Eichen obtained a $51 million verdict on behalf of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 2010 following a suit against Johnson & Johnson for overcharging Medicaid recipients. This verdict led to the Commonwealth further recovering hundreds of millions of dollars. “No case is too big, complex or expensive for our firm,” Eichen said. “We have achieved great success representing high-profile clients. But we also truly believe that no client is too small to fight for after they have sustained significant damages.” The firm and its leaders have been honored by the media and legal community as well. U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” has ranked the firm as Tier 1 in Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs in New Jersey, and Tier 2 in both Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions - Plaintiffs and Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs in New Jersey. In 2020, Zaslow was recognized by The Best Lawyers in America© as the “Lawyer of the Year” in Woodbridge, New Jersey, for Medical Malpractice - Plaintiffs. Eichen and Crutchlow have also been ranked by the publication since 2013; Eichen in the areas of Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions - Plaintiffs and Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs, and Crutchlow in the areas of Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs and Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs. “We are fighters, in and out of the courtroom,” Zaslow noted. “By the time our clients reach us, they have typically been through a tremendous loss or injury. And through our advocacy, we strive to secure for them the means to heal and move forward with their lives.”

Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on our lists.

METRO MAP Best Lawyers-designated “metro areas” in this publication. In order to collect feedback on firm and attorney work within specific regions, Best Lawyers curates “metro areas.” For research purposes, smaller and more rural cities located within a reasonable distance to larger cities are combined into single geographical regions— metro areas—to help us collect as much feedback and data for specific individuals, firms, and practice areas as possible. We also award “Lawyer of the Year” accolades through these metro area distinctions.

NN WA EGER IS A N attorney who follows her heart. As Woodbridge’s 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” winner in Environmental Law, Waeger found her way into the environmental practice after joining a boutique firm as a real estate lawyer. Shortly thereafter, the Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA) was passed and she found herself working closely with colleagues on the environmental side of transactions. That experience proved invaluable as a handson opportunity to develop expertise related to the use of environmental insurance policies as a risk management tool to address environmental issues that came into play in connection with real estate transactions. From that point on, Waeger continued to pursue the practice and is now part of a team of attorneys at Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis that concentrate in several niche areas of environmental law, including her own. “What I most enjoy about the team is the camaraderie among its members and how well we work together—I have worked with some of my colleagues for over 30 years and we practically read each other’s minds.” When Waeger isn’t at her desk, she enjoys being active and spending

time outdoors. “My husband and I love to travel, particularly to our national parks. Locally we like to take leisurely bicycle rides,” Waeger said before describing a recent purchase to pursue a longtime ambition. “I have also acquired a piano and I am very excited about the prospect of learning how to play—a dream of mine since I was a child.” In addition, Waeger is passionate about paying it forward by encouraging young attorneys to follow their ambitions and enter the commercial real estate field. “For more than 20 years, the firm and I have been strong supporters of CREW Network and CREW NJ, its chapter in New Jersey, a professional organization whose mission is to transform the commercial real estate industry by advancing women globally,” Waeger explained. “I have also personally supported the CREW Network Foundation, which among other things, awards scholarships to college students who are pursuing a career in commercial real estate. Over the years I have also enjoyed serving as a mentor to a number of CREW members in connection with my participation in CREW Network Leadership Programs.” W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

His willingness to stand up and fight for those who are impacted by serious injury or death is driven by his unparalleled knowledge in the field and empathy for his clients. That is why, when he accepts a medical malpractice or injury case, the Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP partner is always ready for battle. T hough he has attracted nationa l attention for high-profile cases, the past year has been one of his most successful. He won or settled several seven- and eight-figure cases in 2019 that ranged from birth injuries and fatal medical malpractice scenarios to catastrophic injuries sustained in accidents involving public transportation. For those results, as well as being highly regarded within the legal community, he was recognized by Best Lawyers as the 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” in Woodbridge, New Jersey in the area of Medical Malpractice - Plaintiffs. “It is a tremendous honor and privilege to be named ‘Lawyer of the Year,’” Zaslow says. “It’s very special because I recognize the enormous responsibility I have when I represent my clients, who come to me after suffering devastating injuries or the death of a loved one. It’s also a credit to the attorneys throughout the state who consider me worthy enough to represent the people they refer.” One of the standout settlements in 2019 was for $5 million on behalf of a 6-year-old girl with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy By Justin Smulison and cerebral palsy. Zaslow demonstrated that a labor and delivery nurse’s failure to exercise the chain of command to make an error or omission, the damages circumvent the attending physician’s can have profound effects on families— authority during the girl’s birth in 2013 physically, emotionally, and financially.

Daryl L. Zaslow, Woodbridge, New Jersey’s “Lawyer of the Year” for Medical Malpractice - Plaintiffs, discusses why he embraces highprofile injury cases to secure justice in nationally covered cases as well. In ma ny of these cases, t he recoveries a re kept con f identia l. One key example arose from a trucking accident in 2014; when Zaslow represented James McNair, a comedian and mentor to actor Tracy Morga n, who was the sole fata lit y of a col lision on t he NJ Tu r n pi k e w it h a t r u c k d r i ve n by a Wal-Mart employee. The tragedy made national headlines and the confidential, out-of-court settlement with Wal-Mart was recovered by Zaslow on beha lf of McNa ir’s fa mily in 2015. “I have been honored to have handled some high-risk and important cases to favorable outcomes at a relatively young age. Because of that, it becomes a selffulfilling prophecy, where I continue to be retained in more significant cases,” Zaslow says. “I know that the more significant the case, the greater the complexities and the greater the risks, but I embrace the responsibility and am always mindful of my clients’ needs. That’s why other lawyers—even some I’ve argued against— refer injured victims to our firm.”
