Out of all the trial lawyers practicing today, only 3% of them are highly specialized enough to be appointed Certified Trial Attorneys by the New Jersey Supreme Court. Ms. Piarulli is one of those elite members. To become certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court, an attorney must prove a certain substantial level of experience in civil trials, receive favorable evaluations from judges and other attorneys familiar with her proficiency, in addition to passing an extensive written exam. Only attorneys who successfully complete this process are permitted to use the designation “Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney.” Ms. Piarulli has met and exceeded all the requirements. In addition, Jayne also holds the highest rating from Martindale Hubbell, AV Preeminent 5/5. This rating was awarded to Jayne by her peers.
Ms. Piarulli has been a valuable member of The Beasley Firm since 1987. Not only did she obtain a Bachelor of Science Degree from Rutgers University graduating cum laude, she also obtained a law degree from Rutgers Law School. Her Bachelor of Science training and legal knowledge has led to numerous awards and settlements on behalf of medica malpractice or personal injury victims.
Both in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Jayne has gone up against numerous hospitals, doctors, nurses, or other health care providers and has won many multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of her injured clients. Some of Jayne’s achievements include a $4.5 million award for a schizophrenic young man in a state institution who was assaulted by another patient and rendered a quadriplegic. In addition, Jayne has fought for and won on behalf of families or infants who lives and finances have been forever changed due to obstetrical malpractice or birth injuries. These include a $3 million award for an infant who was profoundly injured after the mother developed preeclampsia that progressed to eclampsia. The baby was born with a seizure disorder and was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. In other case, Jayne was awarded $2.5 million for failure to diagnose meningitis in a child which resulted in severe brain damage, as well as many other settlements or verdicts. Ms. Piarulli also received a $1.5 million award for the untimely death of a severely autistic child. When she is not fighting on behalf of an injured baby or child, she is fighting for others. Jayne recovered a $3 million award for the death of a Philadelphia police officer when physicians failed diagnose and treat a dissecting aortic aneurysm. In addition, Ms Piarulli recovered a $2 million award for a nurse who was unable to practice anymore as a registered nurse because of a doctor’s failure to diagnose tuberculosis of the spine or Potts disease, after the nurse cared for a patient with tuberculosis or TB. Jayne has also recovered a $3 million verdict in a case that involved a failure to diagnose and treat breast cancer. She has also successfully represented women who were victims of medical malpractice as a result of the failure to diagnose cervical cancer.
Jayne does not only fight on behalf of injured babies or women, but also has a proven record in representing injured construction workers or work place injuries. Jayne negotiated a 1.5 million dollar settlement on behalf of a gentleman whose skull was fractured when he fell from a ladder and suffered a traumatic brain injury. She also recovered a multimillion dollar award for a young man who had to undergo a below the knee amputation after an auto accident. These are only a few of the awards or settlements that Ms. Piarulli used her vast science and legal knowledge to obtain verdicts or settlements on behalf of her injured clients in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
In between fighting for her injured clients, Jayne also became a member of the Bars of the State of New Jersey, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the United States District Court of New Jersey, and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
Jayne is licensed and admitted to practice in state and federal courts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. She is a member of the American Bar Association, the New Jersey State Bar Association, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Bar Association, the Philadelphia Bar Association, the American Association of Justice, the Association of Trial Lawyers of New Jersey and the New Jersey Association for Justice.
