I was involved in a hit and run incident, a ticket for careless driving and a ticket for an invalid license. Howard Bailey represented my case. Immediately, he made me feel at ease and comfortable. At my hearing, he was able to lower the hit and run charge to a charge of failure to contact police and got the other charges dropped. I believe he saved my life and my peace of mind. If you EVER need a great criminal lawyer, Howard Woodley Bailey is the right choice
Mr. Bailey is a blessing to me and my family. As a single mom, I was facing a 2nd degree felony with 7 to 10 years in prison if convicted. Absolutely, the scariest feeling of my life. I was immediately put at ease during my consultation with Mr. Bailey. He has always made himself readily available to me and treated me with the highest regard and courtesy. Mr. Bailey returned phone calls and emails promptly. You can be assured that you will receive personalized investment in your case and genuine respect. Mr. Bailey fought for me during this stressful time every step of the way. I know with all my heart the outcome was successful due to Mr. Bailey expertise with criminal law. Mr. Bailey was able to negotiated 5 years probation, restitution and most importantly keep me out of prison. Mr. Bailey is a shark while negotiating with the prosecutors. I was extremely pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend his services.
Mr. Bailey is first a gentleman that loves the law. He has worked at every level of the legal system and on both sides of the courtroom. His dedication to his clients is sincere and it shows. He guided me through my legal situation with ease. After working on my case for 6 months I now consider him a friend. Thank you Mr. Bailey for your guidance and advice!
This Lawyer from my understanding of just talking to him is very untrustworthy. While dealing with a case he seemed to have a ulterior motive of some sort. He did not really give a good fight seemed to settle when push came to shove. I would not invest in him again especially in regard to not having a great upcoming in the case.
The laws in NJ are kinda crazy and you would think, if you were carjacked, that it would be an open and shut case, right? Let's just say, 5 prosecutors and 8 months of their pursuit, with a possible 16 years waiting for me; Howard Bailey fought the good fight and literally had it thrown out. So many things could of gone wrong, at any juncture but Howard took care of each item in an urgent fashion.
Knowing Howard is a blessing and having him in your corner is a godsend.
I just wanted to express my deep gratitude for the outstanding work Mr. Bailey did on my behalf. These past few months have been some of the most difficult times in my life. I believe he was not only very professional but also passionate and serious in doing his job. I frankly felt very secure about him representing me at all times.

After an extensive search dealing with various attorneys, I came across Mr Bailey through his firm's website. Mr Bailey distinguished himself from the rest of the bunch out there from the very start.
During our first call Mr Bailey was not just very courteous -- he was attentive and fully engaged with all the details of the (rather complicated) case discussed. AND, unlike any of the other lawyers I dealt with, he knew how to ask the right questions and get to the heart of things in an instant, no matter how complicated the issues; giving keen insight and always reliable, honest feedback.
Throughout the handling of my case itself, Mr Bailey was very responsive, returning phone calls promptly no matter what time of day; keeping me updated on any developments as soon as they occurred, and further making sure to reach out to me until he got a hold of me, if he was having a hard time reaching me. When it was time to have discussions regarding the status and direction of my case, he was always fully involved, never rushing, no matter how long the discussions would take. He was patient in taking the time out to really understand the realities of the situation at hand, how I viewed it, and competent in communicating how he viewed it, and supporting the best action to take, all things considered. Mr Bailey's incredible knowledge of the law and the workings of the system was obviously essential to this.
All in all, there were many variables involved, and Mr Bailey was personally very understanding and flexible when it came to working with me in that regard. And where other variables were out of our control, it was with Mr Bailey's representation that I had a better outcome in my case than I could have possibly had otherwise.
If you are looking for a truly professional lawyer who will work and get things done on your behalf, also treating you honestly and with utmost respect, Mr Bailey is your guy.
I have yet to have my case heard, but I already know Mr. Bailey is very knowledgable and has already gone farther than any other lawyer to look over my case and till me exactly what my options are. There is no guesswork with this guy and I like that !
