A tale of two cases: The man was crossing the street. As he reached the sidewalk. a huge bus jumped the curb and hit him in the lower part of his leg. The bus driver never saw the pedestrian and drove off - a hit and run. Although he assumed it was a New Jersey transit bus, the man was not sure. The injury was very serious and the man eventually lost his leg. Marc Winograd became his Attorney, he had to sue six different bus lines, and through two years of thorough investigation by litigation, he discovered that it was indeed a New Jersey Transit bus. They successfully sued the bus company, This was a huge win for Marc and his client. .... In a second case, the result became a landmark case. It was twice dismissed by the lower court. Marc appealed it twice. The client was a homeless man, an addict, who had been seriously injured at a halfway house. Marc proved that charitable immunity did not apply and eventually, again, a big and gratifying win for Marc in the appellate division. Charitable immunity is a doctrine that bars negligence claims against a corporation organized for religious, charitable, educational or hospital purposes.This case became a published opinion and Marc lectured on it at the NJAJ The successful outcome turned the client's life around.
Marc is licensed in New York and New Jersey. His caseload for both states is heavy. Marc does personal injury litigation and because the rules, regulations and court systems are different for each state, it makes his work very interesting and stimulating. Each of his cases is different and that is one of the reasons that he loves his practice. He finds that, in general, 'it is an eclectic and intriguing career" .Marc has been licensed for forty-one years and he will work just as hard for a small case as he does for a large one. His clients are extremely important to him, and he is laser focused on each. His cases run the gamut of automobile accidents, slip and fall, and medical malpractice. Automobile accidents are the bread and butter of his practice.
Marc feels that what distinguishes him from other attorneys is that he provides individual service for each client. He has heard of cases, for instance, an automobile accident, where the client, well into their case, has not even met the principal attorney. They might meet with a secretary, a junior attorney, but not the actual attorney litigating the case. As one can imagine, this is frustrating for a client who is looking for justice. Not knowing who is representing you does not inspire confidence. Marc takes pride in the practice of law. His expertise is in: negotiation, medical knowledge, litigation, and Insurance. In his own words, "when you retain Marc Winograd , you retain Marc." He is always available to his clients who have his cell number. He investigates and litigates every aspect of a case, and when needed will always get a second opinion.
Marc's great inspiration from childhood was his uncle, Mickey Winograd. Micky was a well known college basketball player, playing point guard for Duquesne University. After graduation Mickey went to law school and he eventually became a public defender and ran the public defender's office in Hudson County Mark loved basketball and uncle Mickey. He never quite made it as a basketball player, but he did become a lawyer. His first job was with a major Insurance company. He got so much practice working for this firm that after a few years he confidently put out his own shingle, and slowly built up a great practice.
Marc and his wife live in Bergen county. They have one daughter who is now in college in the Boston area. In his spare time Marc loves playing pickleball, goes to the gym and is a voracious reader. He admits to having been a " dead head" and he loves his sweet dog, a Havenese.
