Ralph Cretella
Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq - New Brunswick
New Brunswick,

Ralph G. Cretella, IV is lead trial attorney with Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq with the firm’s Personal Injury department.

Ralph specializes in all aspects of personal injury law. Ralph is a litigator who is committed to exceeding client expectations and providing the highest level of representation in every matter he handles. Every client that walks through his office door becomes an immediate part of his family here at GGL. He prides himself on his professionalism and strong courtroom presence.

After graduating summa cum laude from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, Ralph earned his law degree from Rutgers University School of Law, where he was on the Dean’s List.

Upon graduation from law school, Ralph served as a judicial law clerk in the Family Division of the Superior Court, Middlesex County, New Jersey. At that time, he also served as a New Jersey Supreme Court Certified Trained Mediator handling landlord/tenant and small claims actions.

‍Ralph began practicing plaintiff’s personal injury and civil rights law in Ocean County, New Jersey where he litigated cases in both state and federal court. Ralph has handled employment law actions including advocating for victims of discrimination, sexual harassment, and wrongful termination. He has protected the rights of whistleblowers as well as victims of sexual abuse.

Prior to joining GGL, he worked in Monmouth County, New Jersey practicing insurance defense litigation specializing in automobile and general liability accidents. His experience working in insurance defense made him realize the side of the law in which he wanted to be on. With tort reform and insurance companies attempting to change the laws of the civil justice system so that tort litigation and damages are reduced, making it harder for injured people to file a lawsuit or receive as compensation for their injuries in a lawsuit, Ralph has pledged his advocacy solely to victims who have been injured due to the negligence of others.

Ralph dedicates 100% of his practice to representing individuals who have been injured in motor vehicle collisions, commercial truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, wrongful death actions, premises liability actions, slip and falls, construction accidents, and products liability cases. Ralph prepares each and every case with the expectation of proceeding to a jury trial. As a trial lawyer, Ralph has successfully handled and won multiple jury trials ending with favorable verdicts for his clients and obtained multimillion dollar settlements.

Ralph is an active member and has lectured at the New Jersey Association of Justice Seminar, an organization dedicated to advocating for the rights of the injured.

Due to his efforts and victories as a trial attorney, Ralph was recently nominated and is now a member of the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40, a professional organization composed of the top trial lawyers from each state or region who are under the age of 40.

‍Membership into The National Trial Lawyers Top 40 under 40 is by invitation only and is extended exclusively to those trial lawyers practicing civil plaintiff and/or criminal defense law.

Rideshare Accident Claims

Personal Injury

Car accidents can be complicated to deal with in the best of times. When it comes to an accident with an Uber or other rideshare service, filing a claim and receiving compensation can be even more complex. Today, rideshare services are incredibly popular due to how convenient they are, especially in areas where taxis aren’t seen as frequently.

Motorcycle Accidents

Personal Injury

Did you know according to the federal government, per mile traveled in 2006, there were 35 times more deaths from motorcycle accidents than from car accidents? It makes sense because they’re much smaller and lighter than cars, only have two wheels, and don’t enclose the rider in a box of metal...
