David J. Karbasian, esq. | Personal Injury Law

For 29 years, David Karbasian Esq. has the skill, knowledge and dedication to fight for his injured clients, whether car, motorcycle or truck accident, slip and fall, nursing home, dog bite, malpractice or other injustice. He has continuedly been selected by the National Trial Lawyers as one of the top 100 Attorneys in New Jersey.

 “Whenever any attorney promises you a great result like what you see on TV commercials, it creates a false promise or expectation" says Mr. Karbasian. Even though his law firm has collected millions of dollars on behalf of his clients over the years, it is not listed on his website as he believes it creates a false expectation for clients.  "What I do promise my clients is once I take their case" says Mr. Karbasian Esq, “I will do everything I can to fight for them as reflected by our client’s testimonials on our website. Which is why I believe my law firm has developed an excellent reputation for helping those injured in New Jersey.”

He believes to be good at his profession, it must first start with a desire to want to help others. His passion in helping others stems from his personal life. He sits on the Board of a local nonprofit organization that helps provide shelter and employment opportunities to the homeless in Burlington County. He and his family volunteer at a local soup kitchen and they are in charge of helping to collect items needed such as toiletries, hats and gloves. Just this year another nonprofit organization presented him with the 2021 Men of Excellence Award for his service.
