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.

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

James.and I have been colleagues for years. As a divorce attorney, our practices often have certain overlap and often criminal issues arise that are outside my comfort level. Without hesitation, my first and only call in these instances is to James Abate. He takes the time to do things right and thoroughly. The clients who I have referred to James are always satisfied and call me to thank me for making sure they were taken care of in a difficult time.

Although I did not retain Mr. Abate yet, he took the time to review my case and offer suggestions at NO cost to me. This is a rarity in today’s society. He was quick to respond to my first request and saw me the very next day. Thank you!

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!

If your in a sticky situation and you need a lawyer that you can trust, I’d recommend Robert Schwartz to anyone. Rob is the best lawyer anyone could ever ask for. He not only goes above and beyond for his clients but he does genuinely care for the people he represents. He is extremely hard working and always puts his clients as his first priority, you couldn’t put your trust into anyone better than Rob. This man made the impossible, possible for me and I am so grateful for him. If anyone needs a lawyer, Rob is the person to go to!!!

I used Robert Dunn for a legal matter I had. Everything was handled professionally, and I ended up with a much better resolution than I thought could be accomplished. I would definitely recommend him.

Robert Schwartz was great! He set goals from the very first meeting, and we were able to achieve everyone. A true professional, would recommend to anyone.

I have found Robert Schwartz to be extremely dilligent in his ability to fight for his client. He is tenacious, yet has a calming personality and was able to resolve my case beyond my expectations.

The lawyers and staff at Hanlon Dunn were in a word "professional". They answered my questions and kept me informed of all aspects of my case. My attorney was always available to speak to me which was very important. I would recommend the firm to my friends and family.

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!

Dear Mr Matthew Teeter, I Appreciate all what you did for me. I Keep my head up knowing it going to be a Battle, l just want to thank you. Marry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The Lacey Family

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.

Mr. Matthew Teeter Esq. is a very great attorney to deal with. He was quick, clear and prompt though out my whole case. He was able to turn a few traffic offense that would have negatively impacted my insurance into a much more manageable outcome. I will continue to use their office in any future legal issues.

Gregg provided A+ service for me during my case. His team was very responsive and helpful. Gregg not only is an excellent attorney, but he puts his heart in his work and will go the extra step for you. He made me feel so at ease and I knew I could trust him. He is honest, knowledgeable, prompt, and extremely friendly. I have so much respect for him and his team and would recommend him to anyone without hesitation!! I am so grateful to have had him on my side and even more happy to have found a lawyer I can turn to for a lifetime.

Honestly the best lawyer around. Amazing staff, always thinking about what's best for me, and always fighting hard to overcome any obstacle to make sure that I come out on top. From the moment I sat down in his office and spoke with Gregg I knew I wanted to hire him. His experience in law and persistence is unmatched. There is no other lawyer for me and I can say that after multiple cases in the same year. From dropping a case with 6 charges, to dropping a case with 11 charges and dropping an entire DUI, Gregg pulled put miracles and he did it with such passion and graceful flow of diligence with his work. He is a master of his craft and I could have not made a better decision but to hire him quicker. It is safe to say Gregg is family to me and I know he will always answer my calls if I ever need him. DO NOT HESITATE AND WASTE TIME, HIRE GREGG NOW, HE WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE IN A TIGHT SPOT!! I cannot stress how detrimental his help is to you. Always immediately responded weather his personal cell or office. The feeling of having Gregg by your side was always warm and you just knew you can trust him with everything. A real Alpha amongst other lawyers in his field.

Gregg is honestly an amazing person and an even better attorney. He is prompt and precise with his work. Working with him gave me a sense of comfortability and security. He has your best interest in mind and his staff was friendly and easy to work with. I highly recommend him to all and will use him in the future if need be. Hopefully not!

WOW, couldn't ask for better results.....If your seeking a competent, professional, knowledgeable and result oriented attorney, then look no further and call Gregg.....We needed Gregg's assistance dealing with a legal matter my daughter was involved in. I can not speak more highly from how the case was handled from the first call into Gregg's office to the dismissal of the matter all together. The decision to hire Gregg and his incredible staff was spot on and we could not be happier. Thank you Gregg & Team for a job well above our expectations....

I’m forever grateful for having Gregg Wisotsky on my side. He is a brilliant, efficient and an honest attorney. Gregg is compassionate and will answer all of your questions and put your mind to ease. He is easily accessible to communicate with. I was able to call his cell phone as well, at any given moment a question arises. I highly recommend Gregg. Having him in my corner was the best decision. I knew from my first phone call that he was the one to hire and that he has ample expertise and will win the case. Colleen was also helpful and very sweet.

Chris is the right attorney to have by your side. He makes you feel very comfortable and safe when he tells you everything that you are going to to through with the case. His assistant Stephanie is the best, she always keeps you updated and makes sure that you either get notice through email, phone call as well as mail. Thank you so much Chris for helping me on my divorce. Even though it took little longer than expected I knew that the results were going to be great as they were. Thank you once again, I made a great decision going with you.

Chris Porecca is by far the best attorney you could ever hope to work with. He explains every single possible outcome from the beginning, sets up an action plan, and delivers!!!! He got my case DISMISSED! Had I not hired him I would not have know it were even a possibility for my scenario. I highly recommend Mr. Porecca for any legal services. I would hire him again in the future for any legal needs.

I was just recently cause it about 4 ounces worth of marijuana and very close to being locked up. But I then found Chris who was a true angel in my life and got all charges dropped not only did he get it dropped but he got me no PROBATION AS WELL. haha The funny part is the person that was in the car that didn’t get a possession charge got 6 months of probation and I found that to be absolutely crazy. Don’t make the wrong choose hire Chris!!!!!!

Chris is by far the best lawyer I have yet to meet and a true magician with the magic he works. Last year I had gotten not 1 but 2 Dug's in the time span of 1 month. I was looking at at least 3 months of jail time and a 2 year state minimum loss of my license. It was perhaps the most month of. my life until I met with Chris. Chris promised me he would work hard and that he did. My suspension of 90 for 2 Dui's was amazing because just for 1 Dui it is a 7 month license suspension and I had gotten 2 and was punished for the cost of not even 1. He truly is an amazing lawyer and super cooperative person too work with. Unlike most your other boring lawyers Chris is actually great to talk with cause not only does he understand your situation he mades you feel better with his enthusiastic personality.

I'm glad Chris can take my case with a short notice and get the case resolved quickly. Thanks.

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 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
