Biography Submit listing

Mr. Petro is a founding partner and heads the Workers’ Compensation Department of the firm. He has limited his practice to handling workers’ comp cases over the past 40+ years. Mr. Petro is certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Workers’ Compensation Law Attorney, which is the highest specialty certification available to workers’ compensation lawyers in New Jersey. He is one of only 18 lawyers in the state that have held this certification since its inception in 1998.

For twenty-seven consecutive years, Mr. Petro has been named on the Best Lawyers in America® list for workers’ compensation, a distinction held by only 14 lawyers throughout the country. He is one of only four workers’ compensation attorneys in New Jersey to be named on the list, and the only NJ attorney to be named for 27 consecutive years.

Mr. Petro also has been selected to the New Jersey Super Lawyer® list every year since 2005, an honor that no more than five percent of the State’s lawyers receive. Additionally, he has an “AV” rating from the world’s leading lawyer referral service, Martindale-Hubbell; a rating reserved for those lawyers considered preeminent in their field as voted by their peers.

Mr. Petro has been one of only three Presidents of the leading professional organization for workers’ compensation judges and lawyers in New Jersey, The Justice James H. Coleman, Jr. New Jersey Workers’ Compensation American Inn of Court, which has a membership of approximately 150 lawyers and judges throughout the State. He was also one of 38 National Trustees for the American Inns of Court Foundation, the nation’s leading professional organization promoting legal excellence, professionalism, ethics, and civility for United States judges and lawyers. In addition, he served from 2008 to 2012 as National Treasurer for the American Inns of Court Foundation.
