    • I recommend James Abate.

    James and his staff were always respectful during a difficult and embarrassing time. I was always in charge of how the case went - no decisions were made without my approval. James is very knowledgeable and tries to find different angles to win your case. He was always available by phone and made evening appointments to fit my schedule. I would definitely recommend him.

    • I recommend James Abate.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I was charged with possession of CDS in a motor vehicle (marijuana). Unfortunately this was the 3rd time i was arrested for possession within the span of a year, and the 4th time altogether. By all rights I should have lost my license for 2 years and/or served a 30 day jail sentence. Mr. Abate, after reviewing the video of my arrest, was able to get the prosecutor to agree to 1 years probation and a suspended 30 day jail sentence. During our first consultation, Mr.Abate advised me to enter myself into a drug rehab program, which i did. The reason for this was to get leniency from the judge, since the judge decides if i can keep my license. As it turns out, the judge did look favorably on this. I should not have a license to drive right now, but because of Mr. Abate's advise and his plea to the judge, I am still able to drive and keep my employment. The judge even remarked to me that I was lucky to have the picked the counsel that I did, because without him i would have been screwed. I highly recommend James Abate if you are looking for an extremely competent lawyer who will get the most favorable results for your case. Also, he will not try to empty your wallet. I would not consider his fee high at all, especially considering how good he was as my counsel.

    Thanks very much to James and his wonderful office staff! James' office kept me informed of everything as it was happening and quickly answered any questions I had. It was very helpful having James by my side when I went to the courthouse. He was knowledgeable about all of the court proceedings, clarified what was happening in the courtroom, and spoke well on my behalf. Definitely made the entire process less stressful.

    • James handled my Domestic Violence matter.

    Mr. Abate just saved me from false accusations of domestic violence. He took the case to trial and showed that I was innocent. A conviction would have ended my career and kept me from my children. His attention and dedication to the case made me feel like he was personally invested in the case. His staff was excellent and would answer all my questions and kept me calm. I am so glad that I called Mr. Abate and so thankful for him vindicating my innocence. He was prepared and uncovered my girlfriend's criminal history.
