Representing Injured Workers throughout New Jersey
Parisi & Gerlanc was founded in Hackensack, NJ in 1936 by Carmine Parisi, the father of current firm partner, Joyce Parisi. Carmine Parisi focused his law practice on representing labor unions and union workers. Joyce has continued that family tradition.
Joyce Parisi graduated from Hofstra Law School in 1977. In addition to labor law studies, Joyce interned in the New York City Office of Collective Bargaining. That experience was eye-opening and led her to pursue a Master of Law Degree in labor law in 1981.
Joyce joined her father's law firm in 1978 and, seeing the enormous burden carried by injured workers, began to focus her law practice on representing the needs of injured workers. Today a substantial portion of the law practice of Parisi & Gerlanc, PC, is devoted to workers compensation and social security disability claims. Joyce is a leader in this field and one of the founding members of the New Jersey Workers compensation American Inn of Court. To date, New Jersey is the only state in the country to have a workers compensation program that trains lawyers in this specific field of law.
