Jennifer represented me in a traffic charge while I was out of state. All communication was handled via phone & email with only a week before the scheduled court date. She explained what she needed to in order to represent me best and she would handle it from there. That is exactly what she did. We were in & out within an hour. I recommend her.
I recently hired Ms. Mendelsohn to represent me on a Reckless Driving charge in NJ. It was my first experience having to hire a lawyer for such a matter and did not know what to expect. Jennifer did a fantastic job and was able to get the charge lowered to a zero point offense which is huge. And my experience working with Jennifer leading up to the court date was quite positive. She is highly responsive and very easy to work with. I will readily recommend Jennifer to all friends and family!
I found that Jennifer was very professional, forthright and at the same time understanding when aiding my daughter with her violations. She properly examined the evidence and was able to ascertain the true situation that my daughter had entered into. She was able to properly defend my daughter and at the same time make her aware of her responsibility under the law. She was able to convince the court to make a fair and reasonable judgement in this case.
Ms. Mendelsohn immediately put my stressed mind at ease about a case I was very embarrassed about. She is non-judgmental, easily reachable, always gets back to you within 24 hours (if she doesn't answer the phone herself), and was confident that she could settle for a decision I could live with, and she managed to do that. A possible 8 points was brought down to 2 points, for just a minor traffic violation--it could have been a lot worse. Because of her I can now put this behind me.
Got a ticket in NJ, I went to traffic court to answer, and was told of a list of possible bad outcomes for me, each more severe than the last...I asked if I could get an attorney and come back... I found Jennifer on Avvo, and she put me at ease immediately, with her knowledge of the county's court and prosecutors, potential outcomes she would work to get me.
On court day, before I got to court she negotiated the ticket down to a minor offense, small fine, no points, I paid, and out of building and back home in NY 45min. later.
She seemed knowledgeable. She came recommended by my father. I wasn't happy that I had to pay an additional fee for another court appearance. But I guess, that is the normal protocol.
Jennifer seemed like a good council to have.

Ms. Mendelsohn is very professional and was able to talk the prosecutor. I was solely charged by 129:d and had no other tickets to deal with the prosecutor for seeking dismissal of it. Ms. Mendelsohn analyzed my situation and gave me practical suggestion, finally I got another ticket 130, so my 129:d got dismissed. Appreciate Ms. Mendelsohn's help very much.

From the very first point of contact, through the entire process until conclusion, Jennifer was thorough, detailed, organized, informed, helpful, understanding, patient, communicative, responsive, professional and tenacious. She represented my case with a level of care and diligence I have never seen in other dealings with lawyers. Jennifer always made time for me and was never distracted when we discussed and reviewed my case. While my matter may have been less severe than others, she gave it the attention of a federal case. To top it off, she was nothing but the most cheerful, pleasant and fun person to work with! She even let me respond with 'Yes, your honor' to the judge rather than just 'yes' or 'no'!
I would unequivocally recommend Jennifer to family, friends, and anyone who needs the best representation available anywhere she practices! A+++++

I was worried going into to court. But when I met with Jennifer I was at ease. She reduced my penalty to a smaller charge and paid a super reduced fine... !!

I am very happy that I retained Jennifer's services. She is very experienced and knew how to get the best outcome for my particular situation. My initial ticket could have potentially cost me points on my license and a hefty fine, but Jennifer helped me secure a much lower plea that resulted in no points on my license and a very minimal fine. It was a huge relief to me. Most of all, she gave me peace of mind. I highly recommend her services.
