Attorney Spotlight: Lisa Z. Slotkin

August 22, 2014

Lisa Z. Slotkin's joined the firm in 1994 and although the firm has over 60 lawyers in 4 offices, when Lisa became an associate she was the fourteenth lawyer in the Philadelphia office – the only active office for the firm at that time. In 2003, Lisa was the first female to be made a shareholder of the firm and today she is the managing shareholder of the firm’s office in Jersey City where she opened Zarwin Baum’s Northern New Jersey office in 1999. Lisa is a member of the firm’s Casualty and Professional Liability Defense Practice Group.

Lisa’s practice centers on insurance defense and coverage litigation. With respect to the type of businesses Lisa defends, her experience really runs the gamut. Lisa has defended businesses in cases alleging defective premises, bars in liquor liability actions and contractors in construction defect cases. She has also defended a whole host of automobile accident claims and trucking cases. But these days, Lisa finds most of her time being taken up with the defense of professional liability claims, primarily defending lawyers and insurance brokers and agents. Along with defending various insured individuals and entities, Lisa is often called upon by insurance carriers to provide an opinion on insurance coverage and to litigate insurance claims.

In addition, to her caseload, Lisa seeks opportunities to network with like-minded professionals and people throughout the insurance industry. Her latest endeavor is working with a group of other professional women to teach women newer to the legal profession how to market themselves and advance their careers. Lisa believes that so much of her success is attributable to the personal connections she has made with the individuals with whom she works at the various insurance companies, her clients and the other lawyers with who she deals day in and day out. She often considers herself to be the person in the room who wants to cut through all the posturing that can be a big part of litigation and just get things done.

On a more personal note, Lisa enjoys spending time with her two children and her husband and stays very involved in the PTA at her children’s schools. She was President of her condominium board for many years, stepping down only recently when she and her family moved.
