Nicholas R. Farnolo is a Partner of Chaffin Luhana. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Mr. Farnolo’s parents were both physically disabled, instilling in him a strong sense of compassion and patience for the less fortunate.
Mr. Farnolo is an experienced litigator who has devoted his entire career to representing consumers and personal injury victims. The primary focus of Mr. Farnolo’s practice is on the litigation of complex mass tort matters, typically involving defective drugs, defective consumer products, and defective medical devices.

With his tenacious approach, Mr. Farnolo has been integral in the successful recovery of hundreds of millions of dollars for his clients over the length of his career.
Mr. Farnolo has also had the privilege of being appointed to serve on several Plaintiff’s Steering Committees in defective medical device litigations.

Prior to joining Chaffin Luhana, Mr. Farnolo served as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Ronald B. Sokolski, in the New Jersey Superior Court where he assisted during courtroom proceedings and served as a mediator in qualifying landlord-tenant and small claims disputes.
