Biography

Joseph D. Csipak, Esquire graduated from Kean University in 1988 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science. He then received his Juris Doctorate from Widener University School of Law in 1991.

Upon graduation from law school, Mr. Csipak assumed an associate position as in-house counsel for CNA Insurance Company in New Jersey. In this capacity, he handled the defense of general liability claims culminating in Superior Court jury trials, as well as represented employers in workers’ compensation claims.

In 1996, Mr. Csipak left CNA to join a captive defense firm representing the interests of Kemper Insurance Company. This practice focused solely on the defense of New Jersey Workers’ Compensation matters filed against employer insureds.

In 2002, Mr. Csipak left the defense practice to join a reputable plaintiff’s firm specializing in the prosecution of personal injury and workers’ compensation matters. During this time period, he tried several cases to jury decision and handled numerous workers’ compensation matters, along with real estate closings, criminal defense cases and divorce proceedings.

After working with an interim defense firm, Mr. Csipak joined a well-known plaintiff’s firm in 2006. His practice was limited to handling workers’ compensation matters, and he was also responsible for the management of the firm’s office in Elizabeth, New Jersey.

After coming to the realization that he was not suited for plaintiff’s work, Mr. Csipak joined Cipriani & Werner P.C. in 2008 as a lateral, senior associate. He now concentrates his practice in defending the interests of employers, insurance carriers and third party administrators in New Jersey Workers’ Compensation matters.

Mr. Csipak is admitted to practice, and has appeared, in all state courts in New Jersey.
