Nicholas L. Krochta, Esq.


Nicholas L. Krochta, Esq. is a member of Garces, Grabler & Lebrocq’s Worker’s Compensation department and devotes all of his practice to this area. Nick has had a long and distinguished legal career dedicating himself to this field for the past 25 years. In connection with his worker’s compensation practice, he also has extensive experience handling personal injury cases where the negligence of a third-party, not the employer, is the one primarily responsible for his client’s injuries. New Jersey is a state where many such cases arise. For example, the employee may be exposed to hazardous materials, such as asbestos, for long periods of time and this often results in catastrophic illnesses which cause total disability preventing further employment.

Mr. Krochta obtained his law degree from the Loyola University School of Law in New Orleans. Prior to that, he obtained his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Scranton. Both are Jesuit schools. Nick continues to be an active member of his church and sings in the church choir.

Nick joined the Garces law firm in 2015 after he and his former law partners decided to go their separate ways. During his long career as a Worker’s Compensation attorney, Mr. Krochta has built a strong rapport with both the judges he has appeared before and the attorneys representing the other party. At the request of the presiding Judge in Essex County, Nick had been invited to lecture on Law Day before less experienced lawyers on various issues directly affecting the representation of injured workers.

Mr. Krochta has been on “both sides of the fence”, first representing the employer and now representing the injured worker. He has chosen this path because he is very aware that work-related  injuries cause quality of life issues. And not just for the injured worker but for the entire family.   Nick utilizes his expansive skills as a negotiator and as a litigator to accomplish these goals. He cares and takes his job very seriously.

Nick also has extensive experience in representing airline industry employees who sustain work-related injuries. His distinct acquired knowledge of this sub-specialty enables him to represent them and their unique job descriptions.

If you or someone you know suffers from an on the job injury or an illness that resulted from prolonged exposure to hazardous materials, Mr. Krochta, through his many years of practice, has developed expertise in these areas. Call Nicholas Krochta, Esq. today to schedule a free consultation so that you will receive the monetary award and medical care that you deserve.  Nick will fight for your rights from the beginning of the case to its conclusion.

Nick was born and raised in Somerset County, New Jersey and still resides there with his wife of 35 years. They have two adult children, both of whom are college graduates.  Nick and his wife are very proud of both.

Excellent service.

I found my attorney, Mr. Kessous, to be highly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and effective. He was highly responsive to my questions and concerns and easy to work with, and achieved the desired settlement for me in regard to my traffic ticket. If I were in the same situation all over again, I would choose to work with him without hesitation, and expect that if I were to face a similar situation in the foreseeable future, I would contact him. I would also provide his name with the highest recommendation to others in the area for such problems. (I also found his assistant, Gabriela Vargas, to be quite responsive and helpful as well.) Thanks again for all of your help!

I was very impressed with the professionalism and quick turn-around time from all the participants from GGL that assisted me. I would like to especially thank my attorney Jonathan Kessous. His credentials are very notable he is one of four attorneys throughout the entire state of NJ certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Trial Specialist in both Criminal and Municipal Court Law matters. My case was very serious and could have resulted in jail time or suspension of my license. Jonathan was able to resolve my case very favorably. I am extremely thankful for his assistance. I would also like to recognize and thank his Paralegal Jasmin Caba and his Personal Assistant Marianne Crisitello for their assistance in communicating and preparing me for my trial. They are a great team and I would highly recommend them.
