About Our Firm
You’re going through a lot right now. You need someone you feel you can trust on your side – and that’s us.
We have more than 25 years of experience handling personal injury claims in New Jersey & Pennsylvania.
We’re here to help when you need it most.
You’ve been through a lot – a harrowing accident, a painful injury. You know you need help, but choosing a lawyer is a daunting task. How do you find a law firm that is right for your situation?
What you might not know about us is how much you – your case, your wellbeing, your recovery – matters to us. In fact, our passion for helping families affected by accidents just like yours is the reason our firm exists in the first place.
What We Care About
Some attorneys love to talk about their own recognition and victories, but we know that no award or accolade is as important as making a real difference in the lives of the clients we represent.
Your well-being is our top priority. We don’t mean just the settlement or jury award we get for you. We care about your physical, emotional, and financial wellbeing. It matters to us that you get the best medical care to make the best possible physical recovery even as we’re working to get you the biggest financial recovery we can. It matters that your legal claim helps you find the emotional closure you need to move forward with your life.
When your case is closed, we don’t want you to say only, “This is how much money my lawyer got for me.” We want you to say, “This is how my legal team helped me after my accident.”
Who We Are
Today, our firm is known throughout the New Jersey and Pennsylvania region as Console and Associates P.C., but when we first opened we went by another name: the Law Office of Richard P. Console, Jr. P.C.
This name reflects our simple roots. Mr. Console founded the firm in 1994, shortly after finishing law school and passing the Bar exam. He wanted to set out on his own so that he could help the people who needed it most.
This motivation guided him as he grew from a two-person firm– just him and his wife, Cheryl – to the personal injury firm it is today.
Initially, he accepted almost every client but quickly decided that he could help his clients best if he specialized in one area of law, personal injury.
The rest is history.
Today, Console and Associates P.C. is a three-attorney firm in Marlton, NJ, just minutes from Philadelphia. Michael E Ellery and Lindsay L Sewekow joined Mr. Console’s practice to help clients with their personal injury claims.
All told, we’ve resolved thousands of claims for our clients throughout New Jersey and southeastern Pennsylvania – and we remain just as committed to fighting for the best possible outcomes for every member of our client family today.
It’s been more than 25 years since we first began our mission to help the families who need it most. We don’t plan on stopping.
Our Legal Philosophy
Winning a personal injury claim isn’t easy. Filing a claim means taking on multi-billion dollar insurance companies who have dozens of lawyers whose only job is getting your claim denied. To succeed, you need a smart legal strategy.
One thing we do differently is to treat every case like it might go to trial from day one. This does not mean that you’ll have to appear in court. In fact, the opposite is true. In most of the claims we handle, we successfully resolve our client’s claims without going to trial.
One of the reasons we can do this is because we show insurance companies that we’re not afraid of going to trial if that’s what we need to do. Going to court is expensive, and a lot of personal injury attorney’s go out of their way to avoid it. We don’t. We will take a case to trial whenever it’s in the best interest of our clients.
That’s why insurance companies go out of their way to avoid going to court against us.
What it means is that we won’t let your case file sit around collecting dust for weeks before an attorney finally looks at it. Instead, it will go to our Investigative Attorney, Lindsay Sewekow, right away. She begins gathering evidence as soon as you retain us.
Our proactive efforts and diligent case preparation pay off. This philosophy – of always going the extra mile and, as Winston Churchill said‚ securing peace by preparing for war – has helped us get maximum compensation for thousands of clients injured in accidents like yours.
What Our Client’s Say
Even more important than what outsiders have to say about our legal representation and community reputation is what our clients say. After all, everything we do is for the benefit of our clients – and it’s their happiness that matters most.
He went beyond an attorney
“Rick Console made me feel like I was a part of his family. He had my problem resolved quickly and effectively. I could call him day or night and he would always be there. He was extremely reasonable and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. He went beyond an attorney and became my good friend.”

Yes, You Can Afford Our Legal Services
If we represent you in your personal injury claim, there is no upfront cost to you and no hourly fees for talking to or meeting with an attorney. Pursuing a lawsuit is expensive, but we advance all upfront costs, from court fees to expert witness testimony.
But, our no-fee promise means more than that. We know that trying to get your life back on track after an accident is difficult, which is why we try to help wherever you can. From working on your vehicle damage claim to trying to negotiate your medical bills down, we do what we can to keep your costs low while we seek to get you justice.
We’re Here To Help You Get Better
From our first two-person office in 1994 to one of our five convenient locations today, our commitment to helping our clients has not changed. When you let us handle your claim, you become part of our client family.
We will not waste your time. When you call us, we’ll ask you about your claim and let you know if it’s something we can help you with. In a lot of cases, we sign clients up within minutes of this initial call. If we can’t, we’ll be open and transparent as to why and give you options on what next steps are available to you.
If we can help, and you agree to let us handle your claim, we start working on getting you your settlement immediately.
We want to make hiring a lawyer as easy as possible. You focus on getting better. Let us handle everything else.
Contact with our office costs you nothing. So go ahead – ask for a meeting, give us a call, or shoot us an email. We’re happy to help.
