Biography

MICHAEL A. MALIA, J.D., LL.M., a Partner with Peri & Stewart, is a seasoned trial attorney with diverse first chair experience, including trying over 50 cases, many published by Jury Verdict Review and Analysis and Verdict Search. Mr. Malia has taken jury trials to verdict in 9 of the 21 counties encompassing North, Central and South Jersey. He is triple board certified: Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney; Certified in Civil Trial Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy; and Certified in Civil Pretrial Practice Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Mr. Malia was lead trial counsel successfully representing a Fortune 100 insurance carrier in a six month trial, resulting in multimillion dollar judgments against ten defendants found liable for violating the New Jersey Insurance Fraud Prevention Act.

Mr. Malia has lectured at training programs on a variety of subjects ranging from litigation/trial strategy to direct and cross-examination of experts. Additional engagements encompass being: a CLE speaker at the New Jersey Special Investigators Association's Annual Anti Insurance Fraud Training Seminar; a CLE moderator and panel member for the New Jersey Defense Association's (NJDA) ADR seminar; and a CLE speaker at the NJDA's Annual Convention.

At the NJDA's Annual Convention on June 24, 2017, Mr. Malia was installed as Secretary/Treasurer of the NJDA for the 2017-2018 term. This position places Mr. Malia in line to be President-Elect in 2018-2019 and President during the 2019-2020 term. In addition to his new role as Secretary/Treasurer, Mr. Malia currently serves as Chair of the NJDA's ADR and Fraud Committees, the latter which he founded. Mr. Malia served on the NJDA's Board of Directors from 2015 to 2017.

After accepting a membership invitation from the Claims and Litigation Management (CLM) Alliance, Mr. Malia completed the CLM's 2015 Litigation Management Institute (LMI) hosted at Columbia Law School. The National Board of Trial Advocacy asked Mr. Malia to draft examination questions and grade answers of lawyers seeking to become Board Certified in Civil Trial Law. He is a court-appointed arbitrator in Ocean County.
