Posted by Debbie
If you're researching for a lawyer, look no further - you won't be disappointed! We just concluded a very long and grueling landlord tenant dispute which also led to litigation in criminal court. Needless to say, all cases were decided in our favor since we were represented by the best landlord-tenant lawyer in Hudson County NJ, Mr. Thomas Major. We were able to evict a horrible rent controlled tenant which is extremely difficult in such a tenant friendly county. As our attorney for criminal court cases (brought on by the evicted tenant as retaliation), Thomas navigated the court hearings and trials skillfully. He is well practiced, has extensive knowledge of the laws and is familiar with most of the court personnel. He is quick-witted, resourceful and solution oriented. He may be a little hard to contact at times (busy = sign of a great lawyer), but he is always prepared for court appearances and will see your case through. Email is probably the best form of communication for document and information exchange. His rates are reasonable and he will discuss all options before proceeding. He is a dependable & trustworthy lawyer who does not look to swindle clients. He has a great personality and we did a lot of laughing through the stormy days. I would highly recommend Thomas Major and will definitely hire him for any future landlord tenant cases.

Thomas handled my landlord/crazy tenant case for an entire year! He is professional, knowledgeable, and always in control. He represented me in a very long case regarding an eviction and an out of control tenant. He confidently challenged the judge and prosecutor during a trial when we weren't given a chance to speak. He cares about his clients and offered different ways to proceed therefore saving me time and money. He is always very busy but he will get things done and see the case through until the end. The tenant was the worst with a little bit of crazy and Tom was impressive in handling her. There is never the need to worry with Tom as he does his research and is very dedicated. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer in this field and will continue to use him should any other landlord/tenant issues arise. On top of everything, he is always easy going and fun to talk to!

Tom is an intelligent, articulate and capable attorney. He stopped an 11th hour court eviction from an unscrupulous landlord that resulted in a fair and equitable ending for me. He was able to reference an obscure out of state case that had a direct positive impact on our own case and allowed us to stop the eviction. He does his homework! Tom took on the case when no other attorney would and I'm lucky and grateful to have found him. He will be my attorney for all my real estate issues forever. As a landlord and a tenant, its good to know that you're in the hands of a super capable attorney.

I hired Mr. Major to handle an eviction process, but so far I have not heard anything from him other than knowing he processed the court papers. I sent him questions regarding some advice but have not heard anything from him. So I suppose you could say I am disappointed in my dealing to date with him.

We have never experienced a lawyer with such thorough knowledge, quick resolution skills and personal demeanor until we met Mr Major. We already recommended him to some of our family, and will surely use him for our future property matters. Excellent!

Attorney Thomas Major has been very helpful and knowledgeable in our Tenant-Landlord cases. We are landlords in Hudson County and since we hired Tom about 2 years ago, we had numerous cases that require court processing and appearances.
Tom has been helpful and smart about his advises. He has guided us not only per the Law and guidelines but also in a practical manner oriented towards results and saving time.
He is efficient, communicates quickly via email and saves time and meetings.
Thomas has excellent court manners which contributed to our satisfactory results in court.
We definitely recommend Tom as your legal counselor!.
We enjoyed working with him.

Thomas did exactly what I hired him to do on a tenant-landlord case. He was thorough, he kept me from getting fines and paying tones of money for relocation to the tenant, Even after the case, he followed the case to make sure everything was fine. I would highly suggest his services.

My first impression of Thomas was that he was easy-going and had a good sense of humor. I was concerned that he might be too young or not aggressive enough but this gentleman is very knowledgeable and when it came time to speak in front of the judge, his presentation was impressive. In fact, his demeanor was more aggressive than I imagined it would be, which made me feel as if I had a friend fighting in my corner not just some hired help. And, of course, he won.
I highly recommend him.

Mr. Major is expert in the area of the law of landlord tenant. He is willing to assist tenants and assist them. He is honest, nice to work with and responsive. He met me exactly at the scheduled time. I highly recommend him to any tenant in need of accurate legal advice.

I have a very bad tenant to deal with. I should have listened to Tom by starting the case earlier. First of all, Tom is very patient to listen to the details of my case and promptly filed the case after we started. Although there are some occasions that are hard to follow up with him, yet bear in mind, this is the case for most other lawyers too.
Secondly, you can put your trust on Tom. On the court date, I let him deal with my tenant completely and we were able to settle the case quickly. He also tried his best to protect me by adding some provisions that I can never think of by myself. So I would say it is worthy of the money to hire him than to handle everything by yourself.
Thirdly, his charge is fairly reasonable compared to the efforts he put in. My tenant gave me a hard time even after the case was settled. Tom was always available to help me in the follow-up matters. It is very hard to find an attorney who works for clients, not for money, but Tom is definitely one of those.
I am surprised that there are not many reviews for him. I had recommended him to a friend of mine and would highly recommend him to all other people.
