my father and i showed up at mr mondello's office in passaic, nj after i had been unjustly given three irrelevant tickets. being a new driver, these three tickets that carried a total of 4 points would ruin my driving history and raise my insurance fees, something i cannot afford. right from the start, he assured me that my case would be no problem. in the end, the judge ended up giving me no points and the cop that gave me the tickets and i shook hands and there were no hard feelings.

I walked into Mr. Mondello's office hysterically crying, afraid and scared. My husband being a illegal immigrant had got into some municipal trouble. Before leaving his office I was calm and felt a little better. He explained the process and what we were facing and of coarse I was thinking the worse. Short of holding my hand through this ordeal. I could not believe the miracle I witnessed in court. Our last court date I will never forget his last words to me "I work with the Lord" to me that means he has faith in God and works with his Blessing.. A good man! I highly recommend Mr. Mondello, he can't win them all but he gives it his best! His office manager is a great lady who keeps you informed! Thank you Carol and Mr. Mondello. I honestly believe that the Lord himself lead us to you. To you it maybe as simple as another case, but you made a difference in this family. Had things gone in a different directions we would of been destroyed as many other families. I don't know if I'd survive such a blow. I can't find the words to express the gratitude, Thank you just doesn't seem adequate.... From the deepest part of our hearts we Thank you.

Mr Mondello has represented me, several members of my family, and several people to whom I have referred to him for over 15 years; primarily in municipal court matters, municipal law matters and 2 immigration matters that I have sent to him. He has done an excellent job in all those instances. He always returns his phone calls timely, always has kept me fully informed on the matters he has handled and I believe his legal fees have been reasonable. His professionalism, knowledge of the law, understanding of the municipal court process and municipal law procedures are beyond question. He is trustworthy. After I got to know him, I found him to even have a sense of humor.

My experience with Ron Mondello was absolutely outstanding. Ron is knowledgeable, well connected, professional, and yet very down to earth. He showed that he cared about more than just my case, but about me as a person. Ron was always available to answer any questions me or my family had during the months that my case dragged on; and he did it with patience and understanding. In the end Ron's expertise and dedication resulted in my case having the absolute best outcome possible! I still cant believe it! I can't thank Ron enough or recommend him more highly.
Posted by a Immigration client,
Unfortunately Mr. Mondello failed to manage successfully my immigration case because he didn't check the completeness of the documents presented to the USCIS. In order to help him to manage my case I filled all the forms so his effort was limited to the collection of the exhibits requested to build the entire file. He failed to collect all the exhibits and fix the little errors I unintentionally left on the forms. He didn't perform a final and definitive check, further because I didn't receive the correspondence from USCIS I had to rely only on his advices. His advices were focused on his needs that partially fitted the USCIS requests. Eventually the USCIS rejected my case nevertheless I paid the entire fee. He didn't offer me any compensation. Now I'm a permanent resident. I presented again the entire file (paying again for) and I discovered the small little errors left on the original form I send to Mr. Mondello for my first filing. Again he completely ignored to inspect and correct the errors and the completeness of my case. This is the reason of only one star about his trustworthy and if you can't trust on your (well paid) lawyer the overall rating is clearly poor . I'm sorry for that and obviously I'm sorry for the time, the missing opportunities and the money I lost for his negligence. I repeat I'm sorry to write this review and I think he his fair responsive and reasonably knowledgeable but if you want to hire Mr. Mondello to be assisted for your immigration case be prepared to read and understand the USCIS needs and check yourself the full documentation before the interview. Don't be sorry, be safe.

Posted by a DUI client,
Mr. Mondello took on my case right before a major hurricane that hit our area. He returned my call right away and answered all of my questions. Mr. Mondello made major personal sacrifices and met with me the day after the hurricane hit our area during a state of emergency. A DWI conviction could have cost me my job and my professional career. I was upset, depressed and extremely worried about what could happen to me and that a DWI conviction could be devastating for my family.
Mr. Mondello took on my case and aggressively defended me. He is a man of his word and did everything he said he was going to do. His office staff is highly professional and always kept me informed on what was happening with my case. When he presented my case in court he did so in an extremely high professional manner. It was evident in court that Mr. Mondello had the respect of the Judge, prosecutor and police. Because of Mr. Mondello my case was dismissed. My family and I will always be thankful to Ronald Mondello!! He saved me and enabled me to continue on without a DWI conviction which could have ruined my life. I thank God every day since my dismissal that Ronald Mondello was my lawyer!!!!!

Mr. Mondello is the best lawyer I have worked with over my career of forty years in Code Enforcement. Mr. Mondello is very knowledgeable in state law and the codes. Mr. Mondello has assisted me interpreting N.J. Code and State Law to perform my job to protect against conditions hazardous to life, property, and ublic welfare in occupancy of structures or premises. Mr. Mondello is also very knowledgeable in the NJ Land Use Law which helps me in my position.
