Fort Lee,

Michael Lizzi, a partner at Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi P.C., has been with the firm since 1996. Mr. Lizzi practices complex and standard tort litigation in the state and federal courts of New York and New Jersey in the fields of medical and hospital negligence, nursing home negligence, wrongful death, motor vehicle collision and highway design negligence, property and building defects, and defective consumer products.

Since becoming a partner at the firm in 1999, Mr. Lizzi has employed many of the traits that today make the firm unique: thoroughness, responsiveness and a willingness to immerse himself in diverse areas, from medical specialties to legal standards derived from regulations, statutes and industry practices.

His level of commitment has paid off for the firm’s clients as well. Since beginning his tenure with the firm, Mr. Lizzi has accumulated verdicts and settlements exceeding $30 million, with more than $13 million obtained in the past 5 years alone.

“At our firm, we take each client’s case very seriously, as if it were the only case in our office. Each client represents an opportunity to represent consumers in the struggle for civil justice currently raging in our state and across the nation.”

Attorney Michael Lizzi is a member of the NJAJ & the NYSTLA.

In April 2008, Mr. Lizzi led the firm in establishing its thriving New York practice at 800 Riverside Drive in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan.

He is licensed to practice before the state and federal courts of New York and New Jersey, as well as in the federal district courts of the southern and eastern districts of New York and the district of New Jersey.

Before joining the firm in 1996, Mr. Lizzi worked as a litigation associate in the New York firm of Novick, Edelstein, Lubell, Reisman, Wasserman & Leventhal, P.C., joining that firm in 1991. He has also interned for the Honorable Marie Lambert of the New York State Surrogate Court, New York County.

Mr. Lizzi is a member of the Bergen County Bar Association and the Hudson County Bar Association. His record of professional excellence and success has earned him various distinctions, including being honored as a member of the Multi-Million Dollars Advocates Forum (MMDAF), the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, and the New York Trial Lawyers Academy. Mr. Lizzi has also been honored as a New Jersey Super Lawyer for 10 consecutive years (from 2008 through 2018).
