Jennifer was truly a life saver! I contacted her regarding a legal issue that was emotionally draining. The problem was with a mom at my sons school possibly slandering me. After leaving a voice mail explaining the reason for legal help, she called me back within about 5 minutes. When she called me back, she listened attentively, provided advice, and alternative ways to fix the situation. I think she could sense the desperation in my voice and agreed to meet with me only 2 days later.
She explained my options, listened to what I had to say and spoke to me with professionalism and kindness. I found out that she was in the middle of a big case and still squeezed me in. My problem if not solved, could have been ugly for not only myself but my children.
She gave me peace of mind that things were going to get better. Jennifer could have convinced me to go an expensive route consisting of a long drawn out court battle however, she offered a faster result alternative that we could try first. I wanted my problem solved quickly and that is exactly what she did. She contacted the individual that I was having a problem with and settled the entire situation amicably.
Jennifer showed me respect and gave me the confidence that if things did not turn out as hoped, she was fully prepared to take the next step to ensure the well being of my family. During her timely follow up, she assured me that my problem was solved and if things redeveloped she would assist me in taking the next steps.
I have legal insurance and if I would have went to a lawyer in my plan, the service provided would have been free, however, having Jennifer as my attorney was money well spent!

I have a very busy schedule and Ms. Mendelsohn was able to handle the case with minimal time spent on my part, and kept me well informed via email throughout. She was knowledgeable and responsive.

Jennifer is GREAT! I'm so glad I was able to find her! She's an excellent negotiator and got me the results that I wanted in a dispute with an unreasonable and harassing landlord. She's very knowledgeable, confident, and I'm very thankful to have her at my side.

She was able to get careless driving and refusal tickets dropped while also bringing my DWI down to the smallest offense possible. She also was able to get my 25-50 speeding ticket down to a two point ticket with very small fines.

Ms. Mendelsohn recently represented a family member in a criminal case, and she did an outstanding job. Her knowledge of New Jersey law and ability to make the law clear to us was exemplary. Jennifer is the ultimate professional with great people-skills. We were kept well-informed and were very comfortable and confident with her representation. She appeared four times in court with us, and her direction was always clear. The outcome of the case was all we could have asked for. We were so fortunate to have Ms. Mendelsohn as our attorney.

At my first court appearance, the prosecutor told me that I would lose my driver’s license if I were to go before the judge on that day. I couldn’t let that happen because I can’t live without my car. I requested a new court date so that I could come back to court with a lawyer. I had been stopped for driving an unregistered car which happened to be my father-in-law’s car. On top of that, I was also driving on a suspended license. Ms. Mendelsohn was able to get the unregistered vehicle ticket dismissed and reduce the "driving on a suspended license" ticket to a "driving on an expired license" ticket which did not carry the penalty of losing my driver's license. I am so grateful to her for helping me keep my “life-line”--- my driving privileges!!

Jennifer was very professional, she was able to negotiate a deal on my behalf that was satisfactory. I will definitely retain her in the future, if I need her.
