Gene_Killian.jpgEUGENE KILLIAN, JR. is an AV-rated®  graduate of the University of Chicago (B.A., English, with honors) and the University of Michigan Law School. Repeatedly named one of New Jersey’s “Super Lawyers,” as well as one of the “Best Lawyers in America,” Gene practiced with one of the nation’s preeminent insurance coverage law firms before starting his own law firm in 1995, which is now known as The Killian Firm, P.C. He has represented major business policyholders in a variety of high-profile insurance coverage disputes, both at trial and at the negotiating table. He frequently serves as a court-appointed mediator in commercial matters. He is a Charter Fellow and New Jersey Co-Chair of the Litigation Counsel of America, an invitation-only society of elite trial attorneys. He believes smaller law firms can provide a high degree of value and quality in their areas of specialty, while shrinking their clients’ litigation budgets. TKF clients share this belief.
