John M. Dodig

Practice Areas: Construction & Workplace Accidents, Medical Malpractice, Auto / Motor Vehicle Accidents, Auto Defects / Crashworthiness, Civil Rights, Class Actions, Consumer Protection, Insurance Claims, Personal Injury, Premises Liability, Toxic Substances, Truck Accidents

John M. Dodig is a veteran trial attorney who primarily litigates claims involving construction accidents, truck and motor vehicle accidents, medical negligence, and premises liability in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. John has successfully achieved several seven and eight figure verdicts and settlements in these practice areas, including a $31 million verdict on behalf of an individual injured as a result of a dangerous highway, a $14 million recovery for an individual injured in a tractor-trailer accident, and a $13.3 million settlement for a worker injured in construction accident.

In 2015, John was named for the twelfth consecutive year as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer. He has been named an Awesome Attorney by SJ Magazine and included in South Jersey Magazine’s Top Attorneys list every year since 2010, and is also recognized by the National Trial Lawyers as a Top 100 Trial Attorney in the Civil Plaintiff category. In 2004, John was the recipient of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association President’s Award and, in 2006; he was elected by his peers to serve as the President of the organization. In recognition of his success at trial, in 2016 John was invited to become a fellow of the prestigious International Academy of Trial Attorneys ( IATL, membership limited to 500 lawyers).

John is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney. Less than 2% of the attorneys in New Jersey have been granted this Board certification, which requires a number of qualifications including: recognition by peers as having sufficient and expert skills in the field of civil litigation, mandatory trial to verdict experience, and passing a rigorous written examination.

John has frequently been invited to lecture practicing attorneys on trial tactics and trial advocacy as well as on the topic of police pursuits and governmental and municipal liability, and frequently provides expert opinion and analysis in this area of law. Although he maintains a thriving and successful legal career, John’s greatest love is spending time with his wife and their four amazing children, exploring the outdoors and hitting the golf course.  

After graduating from the Nova University Shepard Broad Law School, John received an LLM in Trial Advocacy from Temple University School of Law.  He is licensed to practice in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and has practiced pro hav vice in several other states.

*Pro hac vice admission is when a lawyer not licensed in a particular state associates with a lawyer who is licensed in that state and obtains the court’s permission to jointly represent a client in a specific matter.
