OUR HISTORY
LIVINGSTON DIMARZIO, LLP

Over the past 40 years the Workplace Lawyers have earned a statewide reputation as a high end litigation boutique that provides zealous legal representation for workers and their unions.

Unlike other law firms that profess their commitment to injured workers:

  • LIVINGSTON DIMARZIO, LLP is a “union shop”. All of our employees are proud members of a labor union and work under a collective bargaining agreement with benefits, a pension plan and job protection;
  • We pioneer new case law in the courts by drawing on our experience and innovation to obtain the best results for our clients under current existing law;
  • ​We Continually support the passage of new workers compensation legislation to change the law for the benefit of injured workers.


Since 1972, long time friends and founding partners Craig H. Livingston and Frank DiMarzio have represented Local 736 of the United Auto Workers at the New Departure Division of General Motors. When UAW Local 736 was faced with a plant closing, the hourly and salaried employees utilized an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) to save their jobs at General Motors. After orchestrating the ESOP at Hyatt-Clark Bearings, Craig Livingston went on to organize 15 other ESOP leveraged buyouts – all designed to save union jobs and troubled American industries. Many of these companies have survived to this very day and are flourishing in the world economy of the 21st century.

The Workplace Lawyers have represented other Locals and International Unions over the last 40 years including the IUE/CWA workers, United Steel Workers, Chemical Workers and the New Jersey State Council of Machinists.

In 2003, Mr. Livingston was one of the founders of the New Jersey Committee on Safety and Health (NJ COSH) a professional organization of lawyers and doctors who practice in the field of Workers Compensation. Since its inception, NJ COSH has worked on multiple pieces of pro-worker legislation which have been enacted into law. Today Frank DiMarzio and Dennis Baptista serve as Vice Presidents of COSH.

Since the creation of COSH there have been no legislative takeaways from injured workers under New Jersey’s workers compensation system.

In 1990 Lynne P. Kramer, Esq. joined the firm and became our managing partner. Since 2006, Ms. Kramer has been Of Counsel Emeritus to the firm and continues to handle many of the most difficult and complex arbitrations that our valued labor union clients face. Her vast knowledge and experience continue to be one of the firm’s most vital resources.

In 2009, Craig H. Livingston became a Board Certified Workers Compensation Law Attorney.

Dennis M. Baptista joined the firm in 2011. He has been certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as Workers Compensation Law Attorney and has over 25 years experience representing injured workers. He is a frequent speaker for the New Jersey Institute of Continuing Legal Education where he instructs other lawyers on the handling of workers compensation cases.

The partners here at LIVINGSTON DIMARZIO, LLP have a collective experience of over 130 years in the area of workers compensation law and remain on the cutting edge of current and anticipated new law. Many of our most complex and devastating cases are referred to us by other lawyers who recognize and acknowledge our expertise in New Jersey Workers Compensation Law. The Workplace Lawyers appear in the Workers Compensation Courts throughout the State of New Jersey on a daily basis and appear frequently before the National Labor Relations Board.
