When under circumstances requiring an attorney, the most important decision you will make is who you hire.
I contacted a few attorneys. One turned to four, and then Greggory answered the phone. I made my decision.
It was the right one. Greggory achieved the best outcome. He did this with professionalism, diligence, and intellect in court.
All the while, he handled a trying time with grace, delicacy, sincerity, and a genuine sense of humor.
A capable and wonderful man. One with integrity.
Mr. Marootian is a great Lawyer - ANYONE who is searching to FIGHT a DUI case should give him a call.
Conclusion: DUI dismissed, plead guilty to careless driving, two months license suspension
Mr. Marootian hands down is one of the best lawyers in New Jersey. I was facing a third dwi and was extremely nervous about it. He went over my case with me and answered any of my questions no matter what time of day or night it was via email. I was extremely pleased with my outcome a year later. He really showed he cared and did his best for me always showing up on time for court and making sure I knew what was going on throughout the whole time of my case. Having a third Dwi in New Jersey especially makes you feel like the world is coming too an end. Well if you choose this excellent lawyer too defend you I can almost guarantee a positive outcome. And just to paint another piece too the picture his wife Nellie is his secretary and she is one of the kindest people I have ever spoken too so they are very intune with one another working together to protect the right too a fair trial in the state of New Jersey.
There is a time in our lives when we make giant mistakes. Getting arrested for a DUI is one them. It is at this point that I've realized I have taken my driving privilege for granted and could have done very serious damage. After the first night of my arrest, i could not sleep, I was frantically researching about DUI and all the consequences and as I delved deeper into the research, I felt even more restless.
I came across Greggory's avvo profile and also read everything from his website and knew right away I wanted to call him. I presented him my case, and he even made time to meet in person and get to know more about me. Upon reviewing my case, he was very honest about what the outcome was going to be due to my aggravated situation and I had understood that right from the get go. After retaining him I was able to ease my mind, knowing that he was going to do his best job to achieve a favorable outcome.
Realizing that my Bac was over .10, this was going to be a difficult case. However, he, along with his expert witness were able to dissect details of the report and point out a certain inaccuracy that could very well have the report dismissed. We went with this to the first court appearance, but was unsuccessful. I wanted to give up and serve the full sentence, but Mr. Marootian pushed me to keep fighting with him so we decided to go to trial. I am very glad to have relied on his confidence because at the end of the second conference, we achieved the best possible outcome, 3 months suspension, minimum fines and idrc hours. Also, the other summons were dismissed and I am just convicted of the DUI. It was a 4 month ordeal that I wish I did not go through, but it's an important lesson to learn and I impart this on others. During the entire time, Mr. Marootian and his paralegal were extremely responsive whenever I contacted them and answered my questions thoroughly as well as keep me informed of any details pertaining to the case. In addition, he is a very compassionate man and very passionate about delivering his clients the best outcome. Even after the hearing, he will make sure you get the necessary information you need to get back on your feet, following your conviction.
I and my family have Mr. Marootian to thank and I am eternally grateful. Anyone who reads this and other reviews of him should not think twice about hiring Mr. Marootian.
Lastly, anyone who reads this and I'm guessing you've been arrested recently and are at my spot from 4 months ago that I describe, don't ever get behind that wheel after drinking. With today's advent of technology and connectivity you can get a ride home (research "Uber," my future extracurricular life will depend on this.), or a place to stay, even if it is expensive. Your towed car as well as taxi, hotel, etc will be nothing compared to all the financial consequences of a DUI.
My DUI was unexpected and my first such experience with a serious court charge. This stressful experience was made much less difficult by Greg Marootian's calming advice. He also has vast experience and knows a lot of the prosecutors and judges. He used his expertise to achieve a lower tier settlement to my DUI charges. It was the best possible outcome. Hire this guy. You won't be sorry you did.
I am writing this review because I truly can't believe how amazing everything turned out. I want to thank you so much for all of your help throughout this difficult time. If anyone needs any legal advice, please don't hesitate to contact Greggory Marootian. He will take care of you from the start to the end. Always punctual and extremely caring. Always looking out for your best interest and honest with every little detail of my case. I dont know how else to thank you, but I hope this review does at least half as much as what you did for me. Thank you again for all of your help.
Absolutely the best lawyer you can find. I was looking into significant fines, penalties, and other consequences. Greg cleared my name and got my charges dismissed. His aptitude and preparedness is beyond words. I generally do not write recommendations, however, I am forced to write this seeing him in action. Throughout our process he was very calm composed, but, meticulous. The proof was when he sprung to action I saw his deftness and depth of knowledge with the legal procedures. Even the judge commended his preparedness and approach.
It does take money to get a decent lawyer, and I was afraid as most lawyer will take your money and curry favor with the prosecutor, however Greg is NOT one of them.
I am writing this review after coming out of the courthouse. While the initial process is a lot of negotiation and I have no experience in handling them and it may seem nothing much is done, however, I can testify from my personal experience that I saw him in action initially negotiating trying to find a compromise keeping me informed all the way, and then finally during trial shredded everything that came against me. He was my shield, and that is what is what I needed.
I would recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer that does not only provide the right outcome, but also leads and guides along the way,
I realize I was facing a daunting and dire outcome prior to choosing the appropriate legal counsel. I believe the right choice was made when Mr.Marootian diligently worked on my case to provide a more desired outcome. Not only were
fines and fees reduced but also my angst over the whole situation. I'm satisfied and generally pleased with you as my legal counsel.
You're commended for going the "extra mile."
When I got in trouble multiple sources told me a lawyer probably wouldn't be able to do much for me. Greggory proved them wrong, and got me the best possible result on a very difficult case. I would recommend him to anybody.
Marootian was a skilled attorney. However, in my experience his mind was focused primarily towards assuring that his associates were compensated. His actual activity on my case seemed to be guided more by political matters.
For example, I paid him to do something; then he said it could not be done, but kept the money. The reason why it could not be performed was never explained. I believe it was not performed in order to curry favor.
