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.

I had the good fortune of Mr. Pasquale Vella representing in a matter that I had deemed a bleak one, with no positive outcome in sight. Vella assured me that he would work hard to get me the best results possible, and that is exactly what he did. He worked tirelessly making sure he covered all possible angles, and in the end I was extremely pleased with his services. Vella proved to be diligent, aggressive in yielding results, and very professional, all while maintaining a communicative yet good natured rapport with me as his client. I would most certainly use his services again in the future as well as highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.
