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

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.

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?

Nice place

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!

Leon and his team are excellent. They have represented our family a few times and we are very pleased. We would highly recommend them!!

Leon is an absolute rock star attorney. He handled three separate cases (2 of which are 3rd degree felonies) for my son. Two of the cases were dismissed and the 3rd reduced to a simple misdemeanor which only carried a very small fine. In all 3 cases, no record for my son. Right from the first contact he listened carefully and went straight to work. He always responded to our messages and was available to talk to. I don’t know what we would have done without Leon. He and his assistant Megan are very professional and stay on top of the cases. My entire family is so grateful for his help. If you are looking to hire a lawyer, look no further, Leon is your guy.

Leon Matchin and Meghan provided stellar service. I need some assistance for a traffic ticket and they helped me so that I only paid a small fee at the very end. They will answer any questions you have and will make sure you are fully aware of the situation at hand. I could not have asked for better assistance with my case. I know who to call if anything happens to my friends or family. "Knock on wood"

Atty. Leon Matchin is everything you want in a lawyer. He's acessible, efficient, and knows the inside and out of a court and the process of contesting a traffic ticket. He successfully argued a motion of dismissal for a couple of otherwise point-heavy tics of mine and i could not be any more happy. I highly recommend working with Leon????

Leon and Meghan were extremely attentive, responded to all my questions and concern almost immediately. They helped me immensely in taking care of a traffic ticket - there services were beyond my expectations. Leon explains everything and loved the fact that I never felt like he or Meghan were trying to rush me off the phone always spend the appropriate time with me to address all my concerns. All I had to do was pay for their services and they took care of everything literally. Will deff recommend and will come back if needed again. Leon prices are beyond reasonable .

The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall are extremely professional . They are quick to respond and explain things very well over the phone without giving you the run around. They were able to help me out with my legal matter quickly and efficiently. Also, a special shout out to Nelly Rivera, she's so friendly and willing to help!

I will definitely use this as my go to law firm for future legal needs. I had to retain services from The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall prior to the pandemic. From start to finish (and through the pandemic), my family and i were extremely satisfied with their services. They never once dropped the ball on us. The staff and attorneys were all friendly, professional, and responsive. Above that, they do what they do with a high level of skilled expertise. Where is the 6th star? Five is not enough. I am totally satisfied with my experience with this law firm. JFM attorneys and staff, thank you from the Simmons family! God bless you all!

If you're looking for a lawyer who will defense you all the way to the end, look no further. The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall is one of the best in the field. Finally, after almost a year, Paul Koutouzakis got my case dropped. Couldn't have hoped for a better result. Thank a lot Paul. I am very happy with service that Paul gave. He fought hard and got the result I wanted. I would recommend him to my friends and family.

They did a good job of helping my father get his driver's license back. They are quick to respond when you reach out to them.

If you’re looking for dedicated attorneys the law office of Marshall is the right place to go. My attorney Paul Koutouzakis and his team were truly outstanding, helping me throughout the process. I honestly couldn’t be happier with how they treated me and took care of everything.

    Douglas is an amazing attorney from his capabilities in the court room to building trust and rapport. He is a family man who does not discriminate against anyone and provides a full breakdown of everything you will need to stay calm and collected through such a scary/ stressful process. I love the reliable communication from Katherine as well. I highly recommend this firm and want to thank you for helping me throughout my case.

    I highly recommend Douglas Herring. I got a criminal case for the first time and of course was scared out of my mind. Mr Herring and the rest of the team eased my mind about the whole process. Definitely great customer service and professionalism. I am also very happy with the deal I got. If I ever (which I hope I don’t) get into any other trouble, Douglas Herring is the one I will call on. Thank you so much for everything!!

    I am thankful for having had Doug's representation. Doug was the first time I ever sought counsel for myself and after doing some research and reaching out to several lawyers I am glad I chose him. Doug was the first lawyer to get back to me and he was very helpful, diligent and responsive from day 1. Doug gives a good name to the lawyer profession and works hard for his clients.

    I was so scared when I was charged with a crime. Douglas made me calm and explained the charge and the court system. He gave me his cell number and he was always ready to answer any concern, even at night and weekends. We got the best possible outcome because he knew the right law. I highly recommend hiring him if you are charged with a serious crime.

    Doug is a brilliant lawyer and his courtroom demeanor, virtual or not, is IMPRESSIVE. Doug is one of the best communicators that I have dealt with. He was able to go above and beyond my expectations and dealt my case in a truly professiona; manner. He didn’t try to break the bank but still gave you the best service. Doug you are the best!! Doug was better then I could have asked for and so we’re the results. He reminded me of court dates and walked me through everything step by step which made things very easy for me. I would recommend Doug to anyone who wants a professional and responsive lawyer. VICTORY!!! My life changed because I chose the right person to manage my needs. If ever anyone is looking for best DUI attorney in New Jersey, look no further. DOUG is one stop for your case and I am sure you are on the winning side. I would definitely recommend Doug to anyone for their traffic violations or DUI needs. Thank you Doug..

      I highly recommend Douglas Herring. I got a criminal case for the first time and of course was scared out of my mind. Mr Herring and the rest of the team eased my mind about the whole process. Definitely great customer service and professionalism. I am also very happy with the deal I got. If I ever (which I hope I don’t) get into any other trouble, Douglas Herring is the one I will call on. Thank you so much for everything!!

      I am thankful for having had Doug's representation. Doug was the first time I ever sought counsel for myself and after doing some research and reaching out to several lawyers I am glad I chose him. Doug was the first lawyer to get back to me and he was very helpful, diligent and responsive from day 1. Doug gives a good name to the lawyer profession and works hard for his clients.

      I was so scared when I was charged with a crime. Douglas made me calm and explained the charge and the court system. He gave me his cell number and he was always ready to answer any concern, even at night and weekends. We got the best possible outcome because he knew the right law. I highly recommend hiring him if you are charged with a serious crime.

      Doug is a brilliant lawyer and his courtroom demeanor, virtual or not, is IMPRESSIVE. Doug is one of the best communicators that I have dealt with. He was able to go above and beyond my expectations and dealt my case in a truly professiona; manner. He didn’t try to break the bank but still gave you the best service. Doug you are the best!! Doug was better then I could have asked for and so we’re the results. He reminded me of court dates and walked me through everything step by step which made things very easy for me. I would recommend Doug to anyone who wants a professional and responsive lawyer. VICTORY!!! My life changed because I chose the right person to manage my needs. If ever anyone is looking for best DUI attorney in New Jersey, look no further. DOUG is one stop for your case and I am sure you are on the winning side. I would definitely recommend Doug to anyone for their traffic violations or DUI needs. Thank you Doug..

    Outstanding! I'm writing this review only because Its a game changer. I've been in and out of trouble all my life. From Minor innocents to major headaches. That being said, I have dealt with lawyers all my life. I never saw an attorney fight as hard as James......period. I felt like I was being represented by my father,. He made me having prior restraining orders a good thing! Who does that? I even felt good about myself! During this pandemic I had many issues taken care of. Here it goes. Bridgewater, NJ driving suspended, expired registration= $200 fine Sayerville, NJ DWI State Police= Dismissed Mercer County Grand Theft Auto= Dismissed/ Disappear Union County- Assault- Released from jail after being retained for 6 days. In addition had charges dropped to Municipality= Dismissed Expungements in process. Talk about starting off with a clean slate! Thats my life now Thanks to the Law Offices of James A. Abate

    I would give 10 stars to James and his team . James is a man of his words . Highly knowledgeable and dedicated . James expertise resolved my case with a positive outcome . James and Ally gave personal attention to my case . They were honest and communicated every step of the process . My queries and concerns were answered in a timely manner even if it was over the weekend . I highly recommend James and his team.

    I would like to commend Mr. Abate and his team for their loyalty and commitment to my particular case. I am truly appreciative of each and every team members assistance and awareness throughout a personally stressful case. I was consistently updated, promptly informed and felt a great deal of comfort from this team. Tremendous appreciation to Mr. Abate and staff.

    Mr. James A. Abate, Esq. is a highly respected criminal and civil defense attorney. Whether he takes your case on as plaintiff or defendant, Mr. Abate represents and guides his clients through the difficult bureaucratic court process in a confidant, compassionate and professional manner. As a criminal defense expert witness, I have seen Mr. Abate’s court expertise in action, and can most certainly confirm and attest to the fact he is superior in his intellect of the law, his knowledge of court procedure jurisprudence is beyond compare. His success rate at achieving the best possible court outcome for his clients is unmatched. Additionally, his office staff, Megan Brault and Ally Fredericks, are knowledgeable, friendly, highly sympathetic, nonjudgmental, accommodating and compassionate to his client’s every needs. I do not make this recommendation lightly. As a retired police officer of 30 years, and now as licensed private investigator, I have consistently observed Mr. Abate go above and beyond his role again and again as an ombudsmen for the innocent, oppressed and wrongly charged clients he so expertly represents.

    James is amazing at his profession, he doesn't leave a rock unturned and goes above and beyond what is needed to get results. No matter what day of the week (even Sunday's) there was always someone in his office to answer a phone call. Megan and Ally are truly great people and are on top of their game. Hands down a fantastic law firm that doesn't blow smoke and gets results

    Luckily for me I found Jason Volet, I was in an unfortunate situation one that I never thought I’d be facing in my entire life! I was facing some serious charges and from the moment I spoke with Jason I knew I was going to be in the right hands. He went over everything with me top to bottom about what I was facing and what he would push for to help me! Not only was Jason always available when I would contact him but he would go above and beyond for me and truly showed compassion and professionalism for me as a person and didn’t just look at me as another number. Thanks to Jason I finally was able to get the best possible outcome for this difficult situation I had put myself in and can honestly say I couldn’t be happier with what he was able to pull off for me. If you are in need of a criminal lawyer I highly recommend Jason because if you don’t you’ll only be slighting yourself!!

    A couple months ago I did a google search for a traffic lawyer. I came across Mr.Jason Volet. What made me choose him to represent my case out of many others is that he also has been a prosecutor. He has well over a decade of experience. Anyway I was charged with driving without a license and no insurance among others. I let many years go by in fear of the fines and possibly jail time. Needless to say that he was able to get all the charges dropped and all I had to do is pay a small fine and my license would be restored. If there is any one out there with similar issues please call this man. He will help you. He communicated with me through text, email and calls. Call him now.

    Jason Volet is a very professional and compassionate and fantastic attorney. I had a situation which was complicated, which he was able to rectify. Jason responded to my text messages within the same day and even did so on a Sunday evening. I highly recommend Jason Volet if you need a criminal attorney

    For someone who never had legal trouble, Mr.Volet made me feel so comfortable while going through this process. Anytime I called him, text him, he responded to me ASAP. From the day I got on the phone with him and ask him to take my case till the day I had court, I never had one negative thought dealing with him. He knows his stuff. He helped me get my case dismissed and my name expunged from the system. Everyone who has legal issues and need help, talk to Mr.Volet, he is the real deal.

    I felt safe with Jason as my attorney. I was going through a particularly challenging and stressful time. Jason worked to help me with the best possible outcome with my case. He is smart, understanding, and an outstanding attorney. I am grateful I was able to find him. If anyone is in need of an attorney, I highly recommend this law office. His professionalism, efficiency , and knowledge of the law made a stressful experience easier. His dedication to his clients truly shows.

    I had over 15 tickets issued to my company by the same officer within a short period of time. Mr. Cifrodello, did an amazing job with his defense. He was able to get all 15 plus tickets dismissed. He was very professional and did an amazing job. Thank you!!

    Mr. Cifrodello is one of the best lawyers in NJ. I've gone to him twice and both times he got the tickets reduced to 0 points. He is well connected too because he knows judges, prosecutors, and cops. That's the type of lawyer you need! I highly recommend Cifrodello Law Offices and will definitely retain their services in the future.

    There's a simple reason why Cifrodello Law Offices have so many great Google reviews...they do what they say they will do and for a fair price. I just had a very positive experience with Mr. Cifrodello and his legal assistant, Mr. Damato regarding a couple traffic violations. Hopefully it will never happen, but I would highly recommend the practice to family and friends if the need should arise.

    Mr. Cifordello was very professional and handled my manner in the most efficient way. I would wholeheartedly recommend him for anyone looking for sound legal services and advice!

    Chris Cifrodello was very professional and pleasant to work with. He had 2 tickets dismissed for me. I will definitely use him again. Thank you for all your help!
