Levinson and Stefani Managing Partner Jay Stefani was invited to speak at last month’s New Jersey Association for Justice Boardwalk Seminar, one of the country’s largest legal seminars for trial attorneys.
During the seminar, Stefani spoke about issues related to discovery. His presentation included ways in which attorneys can utilize surveillance cameras to improve their odds of obtaining successful verdicts, as well as interpreting the effects of social media on prospective cases. He also spoke on issues related to unique damages in child injury cases and how to account for overlooked details during the discovery period.
Stefani has handled numerous cases stemming from personal injury matters over the past 12 years. The majority have required extensive discovery, including the recent $6.25 million settlement for the wrongful death of a father of five young children.
The 2017 Boardwalk Seminar welcomed more than 1,000 lawyers from around the country and featured 32 seminars over three days—a unique format designed to allow attorneys to move from seminar to seminar, hearing different topics as desired and thereby creating a seminar tailored to their specific needs.
In 2016, Jay was elected Parliamentarian for the American Association for Justice’s Sole Practitioner & Small Firm Section, serving a one-year term for 2016-2017. He is also a member of the AAJ’s Trucking Litigation Group, Motor Vehicle Collision, Highway and Premises Liability Section, and the Nursing Home Litigation Group. He also works with the Trucking Litigation Group’s Side Underride Guard Task Force (2015-present), advocating for improved trucking safety in cities across the country, most notably in Chicago.
