Dennis Shlionsky combines tenacity and compassion in a style that achieves great results for the firm’s personal injury clients. A trial attorney, Dennis is deeply passionate about recovering just compensation for those who have suffered catastrophic injuries at the hands of others. He has assisted with the litigation of numerous premises liability, automobile accident, and general litigation cases to successful six- and seven-figure resolutions.

Prior to joining Brach Eichler, Dennis served as a Chancery Law Clerk to the Honorable Margaret Goodzeit where he gained an unmatched perspective analyzing cases from behind the bench and focused on issues affecting businesses in financial crises, real estate disputes, and commercial and contract matters. As court-appointed mediator in Somerset County, Dennis successfully facilitated a settlement in 96 percent of the scenarios in which he assisted.

A Lester Miller scholar at Rutgers Law School, Dennis competed nationally as a member of the Mock Trial team and served as President of one of the oldest professional law fraternities in the United States. While a law student, Dennis also achieved an impressive list of academic honors, including the CALI and Samuel Rubin awards for academic excellence.

An active volunteer, Dennis has been recognized by the Eric Neisser Public Interest program for his assistance with a number of pro bono ventures including the Morris Stern Bankruptcy Project and the Justice Foundation Criminal Expungement Clinic.

Dennis was named a 2019 New Jersey Super Lawyers Rising Star.
