John F. Renner knows that life can change quickly and not always for the better. He grew up in a tightly knit neighborhood in Camden County, New Jersey. He witnessed the dire impact of work injuries when the father of a close friend suffered a herniated disk while working as long distance truck driver. Not knowing the details of the case, John still saw the devastation wrought by a father who endured multiple surgeries and was required to remain at home, who was no longer able to care for his family, and lapsed into depression. The impact on the entire family was equally severe.

John F. Renner knows that injured workers need a good lawyer on their side. Since 1994, that is where John comes in.

The NJ Workman Comp Attorney
New Jersey Workers Comp Attorney

New Jersey Work Accident Lawyer

I am an attorney for injured workers. The workers’ compensation system is complex which leaves many injured workers feeling lost in a maze of rules at a time of great stress and anxiety. You need an attorney who understands the system and understands your unique situation, including the physical, emotional, and financial burdens weighing on you and your family. I am an attorney offering that understanding and a voice of hope and stability after your work injury. I have been honored to serve in that role for many severely injured workers for over 25 years.


John was born and raised in Camden County, New Jersey. After graduating from Paul XI High School in Haddon Township, New Jersey, he attended Widener University in Chester, Pennsylvania, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors. He went on to obtain his Juris Doctor degree from Villanova University in Villanova, Pennsylvania. John clerked for the United States Tax Court in Washington, D.C., and then served as an Assistant Corporate counsel for a telecommunication company in Princeton, New Jersey.

The Work Injury Attorney on the job

John realized he wanted direct access to those most in need of his ability and talent. He also wanted the freedom of devoting his time and attention to his clients without the burden of traditional billable hours typically required of attorneys at other law firms. In 1994, he founded his own law firm which he continues to run today. Each case he takes helps him work toward a more just system as a New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Lawyer for those injured on the job.
