Roosevelt Jean, Esq. is a Certified Civil Trial Attorney
who has prepared hundreds of cases for trial and obtained numerous successful jury verdicts and favorable resolutions. His practice has focused on representing individuals and government entities in high exposure cases arising out of catastrophic personal injury, products liability, complex civil litigation, labor & employment, civil rights, professional liability, and other commercial litigation.
Recognizing his extensive trial experience, the New Jersey Supreme Court has twice designated him a Certified Civil Trial Attorney
, an distinction shared by approximately 2% of New Jersey lawyers. From 2010 – 2014, the New Jersey Supreme Court also appointed him to the District IIA Ethics Committee, which investigates claims of unethical attorney conduct. As a result of my early career accomplishments, the New Jersey Law Journal named him to their "New Leaders of the Bar" list. Formerly known as “40 Under 40,” the list identifies a select group of distinguished young attorneys for their outstanding career achievements and contribution to the legal community through leadership in the bar. This honor followed his 2010, 2011, and 2013 designation by New Jersey Monthly Magazine as one of the New Jersey Super Lawyers®
- “Rising Stars” in the field of general litigation.
In addition to his active practice, Roosevelt serves as a City of Englewood Planning Board
member, and he regularly partners with youth education organizations as a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. (Englewood-Teaneck Alumni Chapter).
