Gary Roth has been one of New Jersey’s leading employment lawyers for more than two decades. He has successfully tried and resolved major cases in courthouses across the state and has earned a formidable reputation along the way. For Roth, who grew up in Woodbridge Township, the trajectory has been remarkably steady and sustained. After excelling in law school and many years in practice as a member of Leib, Kraus, Grispin & Roth, in 2007 he joined 18-lawyer Javerbaum Wurgaft Hicks Kahn Wikstrom & Sinins, P.C. as counsel. He is the firm’s principal practitioner of employment law. His casework originates from throughout New Jersey and surrounding states.
Employment law became Roth’s focus in large part because of a string of early litigation successes. The employment law community took notice of the major verdicts Roth won against substantial Fortune 500 employers, including a $1.4 million jury verdict for a Hamilton Square man who was found to have been unfairly fired from his job for a health condition.
Roth has maintained a high profile over the years and is respected throughout the legal community. He has been very active in professional organizations, including serving as president of the Union County Bar Association and as a member of NELA/NJ’s executive board. “He’s a consensus builder, and a motivating type of guy,” a former partner told The Star Ledger newspaper. He lives in Westfield with his wife, Cynthia Benn, and their three children.
