The accomplishments and achievements attained by Mr. Harold Cassidy, in the field of Legal Services, warrants inclusion into the Top 100 Attorneys of North America. Harold Cassidy was designated by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Certified Civil Trial Attorney and has engaged in a broad variety of litigation, both trial and appellate, in his forty years in private practice. In criminal law, he was counsel in the New Jersey Supreme Court’s leading case which established the right of one accused of a crime to have independent legal counsel. He also litigated the first case in the nation in which an Appellate Court established the right of a defendant, in a cross-racial identification case, to require the state to hold a line-up which would include specifically identified non-defendants. Mr. Cassidy has been a part of many precedent setting cases, most recently in an abortion malpractice case which established for the first time, anywhere in the nation, that a first trimester abortion involved the death of a family member, and the question of whether such an abortion terminated the life of a living human being was a question of fact for a jury to determine. He successfully opposed major companies such as General Motors and was Chief Counsel in the famous Baby M case, the first in the United States to strike down surrogate parenting contracts as illegal, unenforceable, against public policy, and exploitive of women. His key to success is having passion for what he does and taking cases he believes in, even if it sacrifices his own time and comfort. Harold was selected by the New Jersey Governor to serve as a member of the New Jersey Bioethics Commission, was a Delegate to the American Bar Association convention on Life, Death and the Law, selected Person of the Week by the ABC World News with Peter Jennings, and recently selected as one of New Jersey’s top attorneys in the field of general litigation by New Jersey Monthly and New Jersey Super Lawyers magazines.
