I have only positive things to say about Leon. The way he handled our situation is very commendable. He patiently took consideration of our situation and walked us through all the potential issues and outcomes. He is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. His promptness in answering our questions and concerns, his patience and professionalism was indeed very reassuring. He was always there for us. I thank him for his competence, expertise and care. Our case was handled quickly with positive outcome. I highly recommend him without reservation. I will forever be grateful for his excellent work.

Words can't describe Leon's representation. Not only was he calm and supportive, he is an effective communicator and a bulldog of an attorney. From the start, he guided and directed us and outlined all our options and successfully represented us with thorough knowledge of the law and allowances. You would be fortunate to have him in your corner if ever needed. Mr Matchin is highly recommended.

Leon helped me get the minimum punishment for one charge of mine, while somehow managing to get 9 of my 10 charges dropped. He is a seriously good lawyer whom I have been recommended and would encourage anyone seeking legal help to consider using. He’s amazing to work with, explains the entire process as it’s happening and helped take away so much anxiety during my legal process.

I hired Leon to help me beat 4 tickets totalling up to 14 points, loss of license and hefty fines. He was able to drop it down to 2 tickets, lessening a charge of one of them, a total of 2 points, and a relatively small fine. We took care of everything over the phone or via email and I didn't need to do a thing outside of telling him my charges, sending a few pictures and showing up. He's very professional and much more affordable than I thought it would be. I would be lost without his services.

I worked with Leon to have some traffic issues resolved, not only is he a great guy, he’s quick, fair and effective! Got my case handled quickly, gave great advise, and saved me a bunch of money. I would highly recommend!

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

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.

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!

    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!

    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 .

      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.

    It was my first time dealing with anything legal. Chris and his team made me feel at ease from the onset. My options were clearly explained and I had a better understanding of all possible outcomes. My case was successfully resolved with ALL charges dropped. I will definitely recommend this law office. Chris is the best! Very professional!

    I was involved in a complex, outstanding, driving ticket debacle that was threatening my ability to becoming hired by an extremely reputable organization. Furthermore, my scope of understanding and of the laws involved were minimal at best. Christopher Cifrodello walked me through all the potential outcomes. His patience and professionalism as I described the timeline of the events was welcoming and reassuring. Ultimately due to the facts presented by Christopher to the honorable judge, the four and a half year driving ticket was transposed to a parking ticket. I cannot thank him or recommend him enough for his professionalism and care during this situation. If you need any type of assistance I recommend him without reservation.

    I wish I could give him 100 stars, but I guess 5 will have to do. I will make this simple and sweet: I was facing surcharges and loss of license. He promised and delivered a phenomenally positive outcome for which I owe him a million times over in gratitude! Great experience with him, Great results! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!

    Love this “Christopher Cifrodello, Esq.” I was lucky to have found him. He worked and was successful in handling my traffic offense. The process was simple and straight to the point.

    Chris is an amazing attorney and I highly recommend him to anyone reading this review. I had been really worried about having 6 charges, including a DUI. All of them were dropped a week ago and I am so thankful I found Chris and his team.

    Todd Palumbo is truly a “class act” and his professionalism is at the highest level. His knowledge of the law and legal processes were continuously on display within the courtroom. I would highly recommend Todd to anyone who is seeking legal counsel!

    Mr. Dennis j. Ortiguera Is very very good. He helped me with my queries . Very pleasant and nice man. Please do consult with him.

    I found out Alan M Lubiner on purchasing a new home through my realtor. I felt Alan is not serious about my work. I only spoke to him for 30 minutes over the phone and that's it. Neither Alan nor his assistant explain to me what I should do to request for a repair so I didn't put everything in writing all at once. If I send all my requests at one shot, I might have a chance to get all that I asked for. I felt Alan and his assistant didn't really pay attention to details and assumed that I am supposed to know everything. Most of the people only buy a home once or twice in his life and that's why we need a good lawyer to help you. If your attorney didn't care too much about you, I feel it's not worth it to hire him. It is Alan's responsibility to help me in this process, but he didn't. I closed my real estate deal in January, 2019 and Alan didn't even show up in the closing. He has assigned another attorney in his office to sit in there, but the other attorney never worked on my case. Neither Alan nor his assistant told me that he won't show up. I found out the minute that I walked into his office. I was extremely disappointed. I will never recommend anyone to go to this attorney. Alan is careless and I don't feel he pay enough attention to my case at all. In response to Alan's comments, I did use a different screen name to protect my privacy. However, what I have said in my previous comments are all facts and I didn't make anything up. I also have all the email communication with Alan. I questioned him in the email why he didn't show up in my closing and he told me it's personal without any further explanation. I never hear any apology from Alan. I absolutely never received any prior notification about Alan's absence. Is that professional? Alan, you had your chance to make up for it, but you acted like you didn't do anything wrong. I do not accept this attitude. It happened in January, 2019, not 6 months ago. If Alan doesn't care about his client, I don't think he will remember answering me. This is for everyone - What has happened to me, could happen to you. Be careful in choosing the right lawyer that can best fight for your benefits!

    Well they happened to be the first lawyers to come up I did a Google search I checked their rates and they were at top prices for my case however if you want good you gotta pay this case was important to me to get rid of it so I paid and it was well worth my money the charming smart attorney they assigned to my case was brilliant I had a DUI and it was dismissed! Don't waste your time or money go with this form they are winners this is true Robert C

    RE: Lawyer Dennis Ortiguera My case is a very complicated one, it involves a law not a lot of people (even lawyers!) are familiar about —Child Status Protection Act. I have been to 4 different lawyers in three states (NJ, NY, PA), none of them attempted to take my case for different reasons - the first two weren’t familiar with it, the third and fourth one said that my case was very risky and they weren’t willing to take it on. After almost giving up, I decided to set an appointment with Dennis Ortiguera after reading reviews of him on different websites. From the get-go, while he admitted that my case is difficult, he said that there is a LEGAL BASIS and we went from there. Nine months after submitting my I-485 case, he accompanied me to my interview. Not surprising due to the complexity of my case, the officer had already cancelled my green card even before we were called in, but Dennis argued my case and 40 minutes after, the officer reversed her decision and I am now expecting my green card to arrive in the mail anytime soon. Dennis is an honest, excellent, lawyer. He knows the case thoroughly and having him at the interview gave me peace of mind. I highly recommend him to people needing an immigration lawyer in the NJ-NY-PA area. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
