Jennifer was friendly, knowledgeable and prepared which led to a quick and painless resolution to my traffic violation situation.
Posted by Elaine, a Speeding Ticket client, Flag
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!!

Jen was very responsive. She answered all my questions and was always available by email. She is very knowledgable and thorough. She had a good strategy and implemented it well. This is the second time I used her and would again if needed.

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.

I was referred to Jennifer for a cease and desist situation I was experiencing with a neighbor. My last resort was to involve an Attorney, but I had no choice, as the situation was spiraling downward. After explaining my situation, Jennifer immediately provided me with legal information I needed, what my legal rights are, and what she needed from me to move on my case. After a couple additional conversations and emails later, Jennifer drafted a communication and an action plan that worked perfectly for me. The situation is 100% better.
I've had limited experience with working with Attorneys , and immediately Jennifer put my mind to ease - I felt like I had not only strong legal representation on my side, but a friend as well! She even followed up with me, and to me, that's a sign of a professional. I'd highly recommend Jennifer for representation.

I came across Ms Mendelsohn completely by accident. Having multiple(3+) traffic matters hindering, I was directed to her by the Fair Lawn Chamber. At first I was a little hesitent seeing as my prior bad experiences with lawyers, but she made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Not only was she on top of each and every court administrator & prosecutor, she was also extremely detail oriented in coming across multiple issues with discoveries from the various municipalities. Prior to hiring Ms Mendelsohn, I was facing 12+ points in violations... After all was said and done, I was able to walk away with 0 points from all courts, and simply left with fines on payment plans, which is more than perfect!
You've all heard "it is the burden of the state to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt," Well, Ms Mendelsohn really puts the state to work... After requested 2 certified abstracts and addt'l supporting docs, she was able to have some serious charges (traffic) dismissed after clearly pointing out that the state in fact never informed me of said offenses.
No only was she very knowledgeable, but she was always ON TOP OF EVERYTHING! I would get an email almost daily with any updates, as well texts and voicemails, inlcuding reminders for court, which for me was extremely helpful!
I can't continue to thank you enough Jen! If anyone is in serious need of legal council, she will make sure you are taken care of! 5 stars, 2thumbs up, and many many many thanks again!

My son had some traffic violations, that due to his less than stellar record, could have caused a serious problem with his license as well as his occupation. He faced potentially losing his license on points alone, which could have cost him his job. Calling Jennifer was the smartest thing I could have done. She is very well rounded regarding traffic laws, and managed to plead the tickets down to fines that were manageable, as well as avoiding points on my son's license. She juggled matters in two towns simultaneously for the best outcome. Her fees are reasonable, her attitude is wonderful. She explains everything in terms you can understand. What you see is what you get. Though I hope I NEVER need to call her again..............I certainly will should the need arise :) She really is a gem....and a nice person too! I truly feel you will be happy with your decision by selecting Ms. Mendelsohn.

I was very impressed by her business practice and directness. She is extremely capable, effecient and fair. I would use her anytime. She was better than anyone else in the court room today.

Jennifer Mendelsohn represented me in court on three separate occasions this year in defense of a serious traffic summons I received which threatened to mar my driving record aside from cost me significant sums in penalty fees and increased insurance costs for years to come.
As a result of her uncommon blend of astute legal knowledge and unique qualities of character she was able to obtain the best result I could have hoped for:
(1). Ms. Mendelsohn displayed a clear and deep understanding of the legal particulars and their ramifications and even added a legal maneuver for me to avoid potential problems in the future.
(2). She also displayed special qualities of cheerful calm confidence and diplomatic communication skills which enabled her to both interact with me to formulate and mount the strongest case as well as using those qualities in her dealings and negotiations with the prosecuting attorney to reach the best outcome.
In short, as someone who has worked with many attorneys over the course of over 30 years, she is, like a five-tool baseball player, an attorney with the full range of required capabilities.

Jennifer is very knowledgable in traffic matters. She was able to get a seven point speeding and careless driving charge down to no points and a fine. I fully recommend her services.

I had dozens of traffic tickets some good and some not so good. I handled most of the tickets myself and with another lawyer. But after mutltiple infractions and driving with a suspended license this last court in northern NJ did not want to bargain with me. They wanted to put me in jail, suspend my license for good and make me pay the maximum amount in fees. They were not willing to work with me and gave me a hard time for more than a year. I found Jennifer online after my last lawyer could not help me with this final case. She was great. I am young so it was good to be able to communicate with her through email and by text for asking quick questions. She was not intimidating and made herself clear on what she needed to do, what the scenerios could be and what I needed to do to show that I was doing my part to put this behind me. She was responsive and knowledgeable about the court and my tickets. She was able to piece together my case and provide good advise . With her skill set and experience, she was able to make an appropriate defense that got my traffic violation reduced and now I can soon be on the road again. She helped my close this chapter in my life and I am moving on.

Jennifer Mendolsohn is an exceptional attorney who is well versed in many aspects of the law.
I have benefited from her wise counsel on a variety of matters that have included litigation, real estate, and improper debt collection attempts.
Simply put, Ms. Mendolsohn is sharp, succinct, and straightforward.
She can and does find the best way forward for her clients, whether it be negotiated settlement, or litigation.
What drives her is truly whats in the best interests of her clients and she never loses that focus.

Ms. Mendelsohn helped my father-in-law with a minor criminal matter in Municipal Court. Even though the case was undoubtedly not her most serious or lucrative case, Ms. Mendelsohn always responded to our phone calls and concerns and she graciously sat through an extremely long day at court just waiting to be called with my father-in-law. In the end, she was able to get the best outcome for my father-in-law and we are very happy with high level of professionalism and care she brought to his case.

Jennifer recently handled a traffic ticket I received. She was extremely prompt and willing to give a thorough explanation when necessary. The ticket was dismissed; I couldn't be happier with the outcome, and with Ms. Mendelsohn.

I had a speeding ticket for exceeding about 25 mph more than the speed limit. The ticket was for 4 points of panelty and a fine of $200. Jennifer looked into the case and reviewed all records that policy provided upon her request. She found the speedmeter used by the policeman was not certified (i.e. the certificate was expired and was not renewed at the time). The case dismissed!. The lawyer won the case against the police.

Jennifer handled a municipal court matter (traffic ticket) for our family. We were very pleased with her responsiveness and her follow-through after the court appearance. She was up front about what she could do and she came through for us. I highly recommend Jennifer.

Jennifer represented my daughter, who has aspergers , for her second and third moving violations . My daughter has had 3 moving violations in a 3 month period. The first was 3 months ago, which was reduced to zero points and the 2nd and 3rd violations she got at the same traffic stop one month ago. These two tickets would have increased my auto insurance premium to an off the charts amount. jennifer was able to explain my daughter's behavior to the prosecutor in such a compassionate and persuasive manner that it convinced the prosecutor to drop the points on both tickets. No other lawyer I had spoken with previously thought it was possible to have both tickets turned into zero points.
I would hire Jennifer again she is competent, smart, savvy, and a nice person.

Jennifer was extremely professional and discussed with me on the phone my various options. We met at the court and she was able to resolve the issues quickly. She was able to approximate the cost of fines and she was only a few dollars different. Her services were excellent.

Jen helped me remove the whole X points from a traffic ticket. She is professional, approachable and extremely resourceful and reliable. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for an exceptional attorney in tough cases.

Jennifer Mendelsohn is exceptional... She did the impossible for me in traffic court. She reduce my fine to barely nothing and no points. I would highly recommend using Jennifer. She is kind, kept me well informed, knowledgeable and has a very likeable personality. I will definitely be usiing her again in the future should the need arise.

Worried, I came to Jennifer Mendelsohn for help with traffic violations I was unable to handle on my own, including an unchangeable court date scheduled for when I had to be out of the country on an important business trip. In a professional comforting manner, she explained what she could accomplish as my attorney and that she could represent me in court.
I happily left the matter completely in her hands. Not only did she take care of the problem exactly as she explained, she was able to have the fine reduced to much less than I expected.

Jennifer Mendelsohn represented me in court regarding a traffic ticket, and not only did she represent me with talent and professionalism, but she was also a very enjoyable person to interact with thru-out the entire process. Additionally, I had mentioned another traffic ticket to her that was not even part of the case I hired her for, and she went above and beyond by doing re-search and discussing this additional case with other colleges from out-of-state to see what could be the best route to take with my particular scenario. Her fees were fair, and I would absolutely recommend her as an attorney to anyone else.

Jennifer is a wonderful lawyer specialized in traffic laws. She is quick in response, highly knowledgeable and keeps client posted on the progress of her correspondence with local court/police. She is the best lawyer I ever had for traffic ticket defense. I would definitely look for her service if I have the same trouble again.

I found Ms. M. almost accidentally and I consider myself very fortunate. She was the best lawyer I have ever retained. She was easy to talk to and remained accessible to me throughout the legal process. She's smart, resourceful, and a super negotiator. She achieved a very successful outcome for me. Her fee was more than fair. I give her a top rating.
