Attorney Perrilli is a very good professional lawyer. She represented me Sanjev Rajaram very well and has helped me over the years with tickets.

I am very happy with the service I have received with Joanna Perilli and her staff. Every single detail was explained in every part of the process. My case was over quickly and came out in a very favorable manner with little to no effort on my part. Very impressed with the follow up with her office after the case was decided. That was a very nice touch Hailey! I would highly recommend Ms. Perilli and thank her for a seamless, positive experience!!

So, after consulting with a bunch of lawyers I came across Mrs. Perilli Long story short. I was issued three tickets... Speeding of 114 on a 65, Reckless driving, and improper passing. I was facing severe tickets. I called another attorney Mr. Michael Myers and spoke to him in desperation. Mr. Myers advised me of all outcomes, the loss of my license as well as the fines I was facing. For these three tickets he was charging me almost 2,000.00 and told me he could not guarantee me not going to jail but he would try his best. I know as a paralegal going to jail would not happen, because my driving record was fairly clean. Mr. Myers told me that if i would go to another lawyer who was cheaper that he would assure me that the lawyer had no idea what they were doing and thats why they would charge so cheap. I asked Mr. Myers to please help me because I was trying to sleep at night, I am 26 years old and I could not see myself behind bars. Mr. Myers scared me so much I almost hired him...however something told me to get a second opinion. I ended up calling Joanne Perilli who is well known in Bordertown, NJ where my tickets were issued. Needless to say, here I am after a day after my court writing this review. Mrs. Perilli had Two of my tickets dismissed and one of my tickets downgraded, no loss of license or suspension and all of that for only $700.00 almost half of what Mr. Myers was charging me. With that being said I encourage who ever is in need of a lawyer to hire Mrs. Pirilli. Her staff is great and you will not have loss of communication from the date you sign her retainer until your court date. You will not be disappointed. Thank You Mrs. Perilli

Great lawyer, explains everything in detail and very reasonable prices. She has a great staff and convenient office hours

Over the past few years Joanna has helped me with multiple things from traffic violations. to gettin my record exponged. she has been an excellent attorney, she is on top of everything no matter how small the detail is. she kept me in the loop the whole time, before she did something she always told me and explained what she thinks would happen, she is very understanding and always out to help the best she can.

If you need a knowledgeable, professional, and trustworthy attorney who has your best interest at heart ; this is the guy for the job. It is an automatic guarantee that he will succeed for you. When I first saw his five star review, I realized why it is really five stars; from when I first spoke to him on the phone to meeting him in person the experience was out of this world. He took personal interest in my situation and set my mind at ease by giving me the best possible outcome. Not only did he deliver but he is my go to guy for any legal advice. He treats you like you are part of his family. He is reliable and committed to you. That is the type of person to have your back.

Doug is a fantastic attorney. He handled my case always with a smile and put me at ease through the whole experience. Extremely responsive and a great guy.

I made a bad decision one evening. This resulted in a first time DUI charge. At the time, I was scared by what I was facing in legal terms. However, Attorney Douglas Herring did a wonderful job of breaking down the law and making my situation more transparent. I appeared in court once, and achieved one of the best outcomes possible given my circumstances. Doug is a great person and a fantastic defense lawyer.

I never thought I would end up in a situation where I needed an attourney. But I am sure glad I found Doug. He is very smart and trustworthy. I ended up walking away with nothing on my record. Excellent experience and lawyer.

Absolutely a wonderful lawyer and person. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without him. He was very detailed and had such a great knowledge of the laws. He was very supportive through everything. Do yourself a great service and hire him to help you!! Highly recommended!

Mark is the best attorney in Burlington County, He is incredibly knowledgeable, and takes the fear out of going into legal situations. More than once he has beaten the odds, simply by articulating the truth.

The reason I have a clean record today after a messy situation!

Mark is a brilliant attorney. He really helped me deal with a very difficult situation and was spot on with his advice. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone with a complex case.

Mark represented me in 2010 on a criminal case. His prices were very reasonable and he exceeded my expectations with his intelligence and experience when we reached the week of a highly emotional trial. I was found NOT guilty on ALL charges, with Mark literally saving my life and future. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

I rarely leave Google reviews, and I never in my wildest dreams thought I would leave one for a lawyer. Yet here I am, astounded at the service that I received from two lawyers. I originally met with Robert Perry over a temporary restraining order that was served on me by my father. My father is in the early to mid stages of dementia; my 2 siblings and I went to check on him after being cut off from all communications. His ex-wife, not our mother, swooped in to help him when he started showing signs of confusion. My brother and I have been helping him for the last few months and have set up full time home care so he was safe. The ex- wife found this a great opportunity to grab his assets. To make a long story short, her behavior was so egregious that a bank attendant notified Adult Protective Services of her predatory behavior. After our welfare check, we were served a temporarily restrained order orchestrated by the ex-wife. Mr. Perry assured us this was the most ridiculous restraining order that he has seen in his career and not to worry. Nonetheless, he took a detailed history of the past ten years, left no stone unturned and prepared for what I thought would be a total BS case. Unfortunately, Mr. Perry was called away for a family emergency and wanted his partner, Mr. Rosenberg, to defend us rather than postpone the hearing. Mr. Perry, Mr. Rosenberg and I met on a Sunday for three hours to bring our new lawyer up to speed on all the minute details. By the way, we were not charged for these billable hours, nor for Mr. Rosenberg’s court time. Surprisingly, the court hearing lasted 6 hours because my fathers’ lawyer was a long-winded pompous “lawyer”. Because of our earlier prep work and Mr. Rosenberg’s calm cool demeanor, it was no contest. We won hands down and the restraining order was dismissed. Sorry I expounded a little bit, I had to so you know how unbelievable this law firm is. These lawyers are not typical in my experience. They are not lawyers; they are caring professionals that practice law. That is the highest compliment I can bestow upon them. They are a testament to their profession; our world would be a very different place if all lawyers tried to emulate them.

It did not take long to realize Dan is passionate about his law practice. Talented and intellectual. If you need his help, you are in good hands. Thanks Dan.

If you need solid legal representation and a team that will look out for you, this is where to turn. Steve worked with me to handle a case where the outcome really seemed to be hit or miss and they were diligent and attentive to every detail and I am extremely happy with the outcome!

Dan was really amazing. Having no idea what we needed to do in order to be ready for a court case, Dan expertly and kindly walked us thru what would happen and what to expect. He handled himself so professionally but at the same time was sensitive to our concerns and patient with our questions. I would HIGHLY recommend Dan to anyone that needed legal help. Hopefully I will never need his assistance again - but I would not hesitate to use him or recommend him in the future.

Dan and Nathan were incredibly helpful and efficient in handling my matter. Their secretary helped in getting me quick responses w any questions I had and I was very pleased w their firm as a whole. would 100% recommend to anyone in need of legal help

    Ryan has helped me out with a few different issues and has been the most professional and helpful attorney I have ever met. He was always looking out for me during the process and is very upfront and helpful with any questions or concerns I had. He always had my best interest in mind and I highly recommend his services

    A close family member was arrested and charged with a serious felony. At the time of their arrest, they were diagnosed with serious mental illness and went to a cell in the forensic section of the state mental hospital. When their case came up they were transferred to a mental health section of the county jail. Although I was the victim and hoped to get treatment for my relative, the state automatically pressed criminal charges under the state's domestic violence laws. Initially, my relative was defended by a public defender, which was a relief given the cost of hiring a defense attorney. But the public defender was so overworked and overloaded with cases I am surprised he could remember my relative's name. Neither my relative nor anyone else in the family could find out much about how the case was going because the public defender spent so much time in court defending a great pile of case-after-case. Little by little I learned that the prosecution's case was relatively strong. The prosecution piled on every possible charge the prosecutor could imagine, and remained adamant in pressing for maximum, non-concurrent sentences for all charges -- up to 30 years in prison. The public defender conducted negotiations with the prosecutor and was slowly working toward a deal. All my relative had to do was plead-out and they could get off 'light' -- with only eight years in state prison. This seems to be the way law works these days. Forget all about all the lawyer and cop shows you might have seen on tv or in the movies. Very few defendants risk going to trial in our legal system which has become so heavily weighted in favor of the prosecution. I couldn't fault the efforts of the public defender given his situation but I didn't need to learn any more. I started hunting for a private attorney to defend my relative. Finding a good criminal defense attorney is not as easy as I expected. There are many attorneys who practice criminal defense -- for shoplifting or DUI charges -- but relatively few who will practice and are experienced at defending in serious felony cases. My search was further complicated by my relative's mental illness and the state's insistence on treating their case as a criminal case. I feel very fortunate to have found Ryan Gilbert, LLC. He was both experienced with handling criminal cases like my relative's and knowledgeable in the special case law involved in what is called a Krol case -- named for the defendant whose defense case pioneered this area of criminal law. In addition, Ryan Gilbert knew what expert witness to retain to best forward my relative's defense. I believe the testimony of this expert witness together with Ryan Gilbert's patience and expertise was crucial in determining the outcome of this case. There were several difficult personalities Ryan Gilbert had to deal with in handling my relative's case. I remain impressed by his ability to understand and skillfully maneuver through the often delicate relations with these difficult people. Unlike the public defender, it was easy to reach Ryan Gilbert and he was forthcoming and plain spoken about how the case was progressing. Ryan met with state prosecutors in court and in side negotiations for over a year. At the end of this ordeal the state finally recognized that my relative suffered from mental illness and the state's interests would be best served if this relative were placed into the state mental health system as a Krol patient. Mounting a criminal defense requires considerable time and energy in addition to resources like the expert witness Ryan Gilbert obtained to further this case. Hard work, and great skill and expertise deserve adequate compensation. The defense of my relative was neither free nor exorbitant, and worth more than every penny it cost. How much would you value each year in the life of someone you love?

    During a time of great distress, Ryan heard my concern, assessed, and called me the next day to accept the case. While working together, Ryan was reliable and consistent with his communication. He always treated me with respect and offered the available options to help me as the client make informed decisions, without making any promise. I'd highly recommend his service to any friend or family member.

    I found myself in quite a situation and Ryan could not have been more helpful in my time of need. Ryan worked tirelessly and did whatever he could to secure for me the best possible outcome. Even when I first called, I never could have imagined having my case resolve as positively as it did. Thank you so much Ryan!

    He was Great assured me everything was going to be alright and got me a great deal I am very satisfied with the results. Thanks Ryan

Even when I first called, I never could have imagined having my case resolve as positively as it did. Thank you so much Ryan!

    I called Jason to ask for his help he was on the phone with a client and immediately called me back within minutes. He never asked me about money or payment he was more concerned about my issue. He stayed on the phone with me over 20 minutes discussing the issue at hand, he was knowledgeable and gave me his opinion asked me several questions about my case and he told me what I needed to know and all this without hesitation. He genuinely was concerned about my situation. How many lawyers can you say would do that for a stranger he didn't know or met. It's not as if I was referred to him. This is someone that I highly recommend to anyone in need. He is absolutely incredible!!!! Noel

    One of the best attorneys in NJ. He helped me out of a situation that could have ruined my whole life and worked hard to get us the best possible result. Jason cares about everyone of his clients as if you’re the only client he has. Thank you for your continued dedication throughout this process, I hope I never have to use you again but would highly recommend Jason to anyone that needs his services.

    From our very first conversation, I knew Jason was not only a great lawyer but also a great person. He was extremely attentive and made sure he addressed every one of our concerns with the legal process throughout. He went out of his way to make sure we knew all of the implications and how we could address our issues most effectively. At the same time, he related to us on a personal level and took our exact life situation into account when devising his defense for us. The end result was nothing short of amazing, we admittedly handed him a mess of a situation and he sorted through it until it was resolved, keeping us informed and comfortable through the entire process. I will use Jason for any legal advisement role I will ever need and will absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs great representation.

    I highly recommend him good attorney he does his job well

    I can not thank Mr Volet enough for all he did for me and my case. I had a probation violation with a warrant that was 6 years old and he did his thing I didn't spend 1 day not even 1 second in jail . He had my warrant lifted with out me having to see the judge then when I finally had court my probation was terminated and I am now a free woman thanks to him . He is a life saver so if you ever need a lawyer that gives his 100 percent and knows the ins and outs of the law I highly recommend him . He truly cares about his clients and goes above and beyond trust .

    Our daughter was involved in a traffic offense which resulted in a crash and two traffic citations, one very serious. After checking with a number of different attorneys, we chose the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall. We worked with several of their attorneys, but most closely with Mathew Dorry who handled our case most of the way and stood by us in multiple court appearances. I can't say enough of the best possible outcome that Mathew worked out for us. My daughter was still held accountable, but we feel that we couldn't have done any better without the help and expertise of Jonathan Marshall's attorneys. They're reassuring but realistic and lay everything out for your consideration for an informed decision. Thank you!

    Great experience and outcome working with Matt and Colin. Trust the process!

    Jonathan was very helpful, he helped me get out of a 6 point speeding ticket! They wanted to suspend my license but he got me out with a measly $30 fine. What a great guy and lawyer. I highly recommend his services. 10/10

    Jonathan was a great attorney. He helped reduce fines that I had to pay to the courts and truly cared about my needs. In addition, his fees are much more affordable than other attorneys and I would definitely recommend to anyone.

    This is one of the best experiences I’ve had. I had a lot of fines to pay off and Mr. Jonathan Marshall was my lawyer. His prices are great and his service is even better. Will definitely use again and would recommend to everyone.

    I really recommend Matt. From day one he understood me and my case and he did everything in his power to expedite the process and attain the best result possible for the situation. From the moment I hired him, he handled everything and I didn’t have to worry about anything at all. If you hire him know that he will handle it and he will take your matters into his own hands by giving you the best approach and best advice. His experience and skills are impeccable and his team at the office are exceptionally good at keeping up with the case. He will take what you say and what your case is and be able to develop the best possible solution or plan of action. And he has the amazing ability to understand your needs, your worries, your concerns, and help ease the stress you feel. I would definitely and highly recommend Matt and his team!

    I have hired Matt Teeter twice and I highly recommend him. He was able to get the minimum penalty on a DUI for a family member and recently got this same charge dismissed on another occasion. He is honest, straightforward and no nonsense while at the same time genuinely cares and is sensitive to the personal challenges of his clients. He will fight for his client until a fair agreement is reached. He leaves no stone unturned in an effort to get a successful result. I can’t say enough about Matt as an excellent attorney as well as an exceptional person. Thanks Matt! You are the best!

    Matt and his team are fantastic. They do everything in their power to provide you the best possible service regardless of your situation or probability of success. With that being said, they managed to have all of my charges dismissed.

    Very good lawyer. Would request him to everyone. Had no problems answering my questions and made sure I understood everything. He made my divorce go smooth and I was very pleased with the outcome.

    Thanks Steve for responding to my inquiries in an expeditious manner regarding my divorce proceedings back in 2007 in which you were my representing lawyer. The information you provided was truly beneficial in understanding the final results of the divorce agreement as I plan for my eventual retirement in 3 years. Thanks again!!!

    Stephen was quick, efficient and compassionate for my divorce three years ago. Using him for another personal matter. He continues to be available for all questions and concerns. I tend to have many questions and he has tremendous patience and answers everything.

    Stephen went above and beyond for me. He was extremely understanding and knowledgeable in multiple fields of law. I'd recommend him to anyone in New Jersey! A+++

    I could not have been happier with the performance and the defense prepared by Stephen R. Piper, Esquire. From the minute he took my case he was dedicated to my defense, and pursued it vigorously. Having such a great attorney standing between me and the charges brought against me provided a sense of security, and removed the fear and worry from an already stressful situation. He had other cases going on, but I always felt like I was his only client. He answered my calls, and provided excellent legal council, in addition to taking calls sometimes just to put my mind at ease. When it came time to go to court, he performed brilliantly. He was polite, yet aggressive, and on a mission to win. I did not have to do much except sit there and watch him win my case. He was worth every penny and I could not be happier. I would strongly recommend his services, and he is the only lawyer I would call in the future.
