He is a cheap lawyer, which means he will do little to no work. He claims he has connections but doesn't. This lawyer acts more like a buddy than a professional lawyer. We went to court and I spoke to the judge more than my lawyer. He got me a deal that I could of gotten myself. Seriously save your money up for a real lawyer or get a public defendant. He is a waste of time and money.
Last year, two buddies and me were driving on Route 80 in NJ when we were stopped by the State Police. The driver had a bag of weed on him and there was a bag on the front seat floor and on the back seat floor. The New Jersey State Police charged all three of us with simple possession of marijuana. The three of us hired different lawyers to represent us with me hiring Mr. Pietruska. He reviewed the discovery package and noticed that the State Police only tested one of the three bags. My two friends lawyers didn't notice this fact and their lawyers told them to plead guilty and go into a pretrial program with fines of over $1200! When we all went into court, my two friends did just that and plead guilty to the Judge. My lawyer, Mr. Pietruska then told the Judge that the prosecutor would need to dismiss my case because the prosecutor could only prove beyond a reasonable doubt that there was one bag of weed and could not possibly prove who had the bag and that there were already my two friends both pleading to it! Needless to say, the prosecutor had no choice but to agree with Mr. Pietruska's assertion and the Judge promptly dismissed the charges against me! If you are ever in need of a lawyer who is really smart, has very reasonable prices and always has your back you need to call Mr. Stan the Man.
I had a car accident in 2010 and consulted with several lawyers who told me I had a tough case as I have limited ability to sue on my insurance policy. A coworker referred me to Mr. Pietruska, He was easy to deal with, always had time for me and was not afraid to slug it out with the insurance company. He was able to get the other person's entire policy paid to me. Stan is the man! I highly recommend him if you or a family member has a car accident and want a super high quality lawyer. He is the best lawyer my family or I have ever used.
I had a bad driving record which caused me to lose my license years ago. I went to 3 others lawyers who were unable to get my record cleaned up. A friend recommended Mr. Pietruska and he was able to get my driving record cleaned up and my New Jersey driving priviledges were restored.
