Jen represented me for multiple traffic violations. I spoke with several lawyers prior to retaining her services and, upon our first conversation, was quickly convinced she was the best choice. She outlined a clear and logical path to beat the charges through careful navigation of the legal process and negotiation with a prosecutors office she had years of experience dealing with. Her services were offered at an extremely reasonable/affordable price compared with competing offers from law offices who aggressively advertised themselves to me as well as those I had passively sought out after being pulled over.
My choice was proven throughout the process as her strategy played exactly as laid out during our initial consultation and landed me the most positive result possible. Jen was able to get 3 tickets equaling 5 points down to a single, ZERO point offense and two violation dismissals. I spent a total of 15 minutes breezing through the courtroom, skipping ahead of those not fortunate enough to have her capable services on their side. She was reassuring and confident without any of the phony slickness I've dealt with in other firms. While my situation was unique, I would strongly recommend Attorney Mendelsohn's services to anyone in her various practices areas.
Having dealt with several lawyers in the past (lucky me... not!) I can say without hesitation this was my best experience yet. She was that good! Thanks again Jen for all your help :).
Jennifer's work, follow through, and results were excellent.
I totally recommend her.
I really enjoyed working with Jennifer. I was a little nervous since I got two tickets. Jennifer showed knowledge and confidence on the matter all the time. I would recommend and work with her again. At the end I didn't get any points!!! :D
I live out of state and needed the service of an attorney in Bergen county NJ, After going on line and calling around for referrals I came to Jennifer Mendelsohn. She was honest timely and kept me informed during the whole process. Could not have asked for better service. Highly Recommend!!!
An exceptional lawyer. I hired her to help me get out of 7 tickets. I thought the outcome would have been maybe one or two tickets dismissed instead she was able to get 5 tickets dismissed.
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.
