Gregg helped me out in a Kafkaesque case where I was wrongly accused of a crime. No one in the Wayne, NJ legal system bothered to check the facts until Gregg came in and stopped the nonsense. As the case dragged on, Gregg did more than a fair share of work and he was worth every penny I paid him. He also was very good at dealing with my sometimes panicky messages and fought for the best outcome for me, as opposed to maximizing his bill.
As a recent client, I express my sincere appreciation for Gregg Wisotsky’s representation.
My case was rather complex in that I was involved in an automobile accident and based on honest responses, the police had filed for: a warrant to draw my blood while in the hospital ER and a ‘Dyal subpoena’ to obtain my hospital records; both in order to determine my blood alcohol concentration (BAC).
After having extensively reviewed the Internet for blood alcohol cases, I quickly understood should either test come back with a positive result the chances of being prosecuted to the extent of the law, which is rather rigid and non-negotiable, are almost 100% in favor of the State. Having never appeared in court for any reason, I was totally naïve about the aggressiveness and the extent the state would go to in gathering evidence and prosecution of an individual based on suspicion. In my opinion, right or wrong, I felt as if the local police and the prosecutor primarily were primarily concerned in determining if there was enough evidence to convict of a targeted activity (DUI arrest and prosecution), and did not consider it their responsibility to research the validity of the evidence to determine potential innocence prior to prosecution. After this experience I’m a little less naive.
It quickly became apparent to me that if I hoped to win a case or minimize my sentencing, I would need someone who understood the laws regarding drawn blood BAC and someone whose professional opinion I could respect should he tell me ‘let’s lose gracefully’ if need be.
What I am familiar with is how to find capable resources. After doing my research online about applicable law and cases that had positive and negative outcomes, etc…. I interviewed several attorneys and was not satisfied. I received responses, which lead me to believe they were out of touch with current laws, did not understand the legal vehicles available to the prosecutor and the rigidity of the laws surrounding BAC. I had lawyers telling me I should plead guilty and rely on the leniency of the judge before they reviewed all the facts.
I came upon Gregg Wisotsky’s name through Avvo and after having received the response back from the police that I was being charged, sat down with Gregg in his office to discuss the facts regarding my case. Gregg is very in-tune with the laws, has a good presence of character, clearly understood and intelligently responded to my position. I subsequently used Gregg’s services and found him to be outstanding, responsive, and when he is not directly available, has a very competent staff who understand the case being worked on, and can either answer questions directly or relay the information to Gregg and receive a prompt reply.
My confidence in Gregg’s recommendation to pursue or not pursue avenues such as hiring a professional to analyze the hospital results and provide witness, etc… were spot-on. Had Gregg told me that I should just ‘plead guilty’ and take my lumps, my confidence in his judgment would have told me to do it.
Fact of my case is that Gregg competently defended my position, efficiently used his internal resources, hired effective external resources, provided a clearly defined and professionally written arguments, and held necessary meetings with the judge and prosecutor prior to going to trial. The final result of Gregg’s representation was the dismissal of the charges against me.
Had I not had Gregg’s expert representation, I am sure the outcome of my case would have been very different.
Don’t assume that just because there is evidence against you, that you can’t dispute its voracity. Don’t assume that if an attorney says he’s represented clients in DUI cases that he’s competent. Don’t try to do it on your own.
Find good representation and someone you can trust to give you the best advice. I highly recommend Gregg Wisotsky.
My personal injury case was complicated on several levels. Despite the challenges, Gregg took my case head on and did a superb job! Gregg and his assistant Laura are an amazing team. They worked tirelessly as my advocate and always put my mind and concerns at ease.
Gregg represents everything I was looking for in an attorney. He is honest, straightforward and very passionate about what he does. At the same time, he is considerate, warmhearted and caring. He truly listens and is completely devoted to his clients. His knowledge, experience and hard work were key in settling my case successfully.
Laura is warm, kindhearted and extremely patient. She was never too busy to answer a question, help me navigate the healthcare system, explain an unfamiliar legal term, or just provide a sympathetic ear.
When I needed someone to go to "battle" for me, Gregg was there. He believed in me, he fought for me and I couldn't be more grateful.
If I were to sum up Gregg Wisotsky's personality in one word, it would be passionate. He first met with me on a weekend and assured me he and his staff would be there every step of the way. He represented me in Somerset County for a criminal defense case. Gregg impressed both me and the judge in the way he presented the case which led to a less than anticipated sentence. His staff was kind, sincere and compassionate. I would highly recommend hiring Gregg for his legal expertise.
I decided to write this review on Mr. Wisotsky to show and share my enormous gratitude to this great man and professional with other people out there that need legal help. Couple of months ago I found my self in a real legal mess and nightmare. I felt lost ,scared and hopeless. Contacting Mr. Wisotsky was the best decision I made in a very long time. First sign that I made a good decision was when I contacted initially the office, Mr. Wisotsky's assistant Coleen spoke with me with a lot of care, patience and respect. That alone told me that a man that chooses his co-workers with care must be caring himself,and that's a rare quality nowadays. His response was almost immediate. Everything afterwords was incredible. I was preparing myself for some kind of resolution of my case with penalty but the outcome that Mr. Wisotsky made happen was the one that I was not even dreaming of... He got a total dismissal of my case. I still think I'm dreaming.. He is the most professional,resourceful,skillful and at the same time trustworthy and humane lawyer I have dealt with and trust me I had bad experiences before. So if you need someone like that STOP looking you've got your man...
I went to Gregg with a DUI case. He was the first lawyer I consulted. He answered all my questions with detailed answers. He was very honest and upfront about his fees for the hearings and trial (which was not the case with the other lawyers I saw).
During the entire course of the hearings and trial, I could reach him whenever I wanted (weekends too). He (also his assistants) always made sure I knew exactly what was going on.
My case was tricky and I was going in with very little hope of a positive outcome. Gregg was very knowledgeable about the topic, and was very professional (the judge said so too at the end of my trial).
It did turn out well for me but even if it hadn't I still would have recommended him.
Gregg worked relentlessly through a very complicated police matter my child was involved in. After several court appearances and discussions with the prosecutor, Gregg managed to get all charges dismissed. This could have gone very differently and I can't thank Gregg enough for all his work on this and for being so accessible to both to myself and my child. I strongly recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance.
It was my privilage to hire Gregg Witosky as my attorney in a law suit. From the first time he counceled me up to the final setlement, Gregg was engaging and kept me up to date in lay terms that were easily understood. I was also very impressed with Gregg's executive assistant Laura Grimswald. Both she and Gregg were the utmost professional in handling my case. I would be remiss if I didn't recommend Gregg Wisotsky without reservation. Whether the case is large or small you will not be disappointed.
It has now been 9 months since we first met Gregg and I can recall that night we contacted him so vividly. We were completely at a loss about what to do regarding the legal situation our son and we found ourselves in, so we contacted a close friend who is a top lawyer in a different field of law and she sent us an email saying that Gregg Wisotsky was highly recommended by her and other lawyers that she knew. We contacted him that evening and he responded within 30 minutes. He immediately assessed our situation and guided us from that point on through the entire legal process with great skill, knowledge and compassion. Always frank, providing all possible outcomes, but at the same time reassuring us that he would work to get the best outcome, and he did! We are so grateful to him and his staff! They were always responsive, knowledgeable and willing to work swiftly on our behalf. The last point you should know, is that his fees are very reasonable and there were no surprises at the end of the process. We highly recommend Gregg Wisotsky, he is smart, knowledgeable, hard-working, responsive and compassionate.
Gregg was referred to me by my sister who highly recommended him. He is a great Attorney and I ended up with a better outcome then I had expected. He gave me great advice, took his time with me to go over every detail and answer all my questions and concerns I had and explained everything thoroughly. Gregg worked hard on my case and I would use him again if I ever needed an Attorney and highly recommend him! His secretary Laura was very nice and if she didn't know the answer she would quickly find out and get back to me. Gregg is very professional and made the whole process easy and stress free.
