Raoul Bustillo

Raoul Bustillo honed his litigation skills as a Hudson County Prosecutor.  In 2002, Mr. Bustillo left the public sector to help form Koles, Burke & Bustillo, LLP.  For the next 17 years, Mr. Bustillo represented the seriously injured with great skill, good judgment and sincere compassion, whether his clients were injured in car accidents, ceiling collapses, trucking accidents, warehouse accidents, construction and demolition mishaps or as the result of any other type of negligent conduct.

In June of 2019, Mr. Bustillo formed his own practice, the Law Offices of Raoul Bustillo, LLC, so that he could prepare and try cases the way he believes is best.  Early on in the process, Mr. Bustillo will assemble a team of experts to work on your case.

He hires highly-respected engineers, architects and occupational safety experts to identify individuals and businesses who may be to blame for your harms and losses.  Then he focuses on quantifying your economic losses by retaining vocational experts and accountants.  These men and women can calculate reductions in lifetime earnings due to injuries, which should almost always be presented as a separate element of your harms and losses.  Lastly, Mr. Bustillo will tell the story of your pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life through doctors who can explain your injuries, medical illustrators who can depict your injuries and lay witnesses–friends, family  members and co-workers– who have seen your day-to-day struggle to regain your life after a tragedy.
