Due to unfortunate circumstances I recently had a TRO ”temporary restraining order” served to me unexpectedly and instantly was highly concerned. The TRO was requested by an ex-girlfriend and was entirely false and unwarranted, it was the middle of the night and as part of the order the police had searched my home, as my ex had lied to the police and told them that I had threatened her with a firearm, so the police had to conduct a search, the search turned up nothing and the police left although this obviously left both myself and my fiancée very concerned. It was also the middle of the night so as soon as the commotion died down I immediately did a Google search on “NJ Temporary Restraining Order” and one of the first links to come up was to one Travis Tormey. I called Travis and left a message at his office at midnight, one of the best decisions I have ever made, and he immediately returned my call first thing in the morning.
I explained to Travis the next morning My ex was accusing me of “harassment” via social media and defaming her character, and informed him of the events regarding the night before and unwarranted search of the house by the police. I explained to Travis that my initial concern was what type of impact this would have on my record if a Final Restraining Order was issued, and with all my research regardless of if it came up on any type of background check or not this was not a stigma that I wanted associated with my character. I also told Travis I was concerned if the final order was put in place what type of permanent restrictions this would have on the rest of my life. Final Restraining Orders are no joke and have deep impact and Travis explained all of this to me. I ultimately made the decision to hire Travis and let me say for both myself and my fiancée this was one of the best decisions we ever made. Travis ultimately won our case with absolutely no hard evidence on my part besides the testimony of me and my fiancée. My ex came to court for the final hearing with a plethora of nasty comments made by myself via social media, which I regret and were in response to insults made by my ex to both myself and my fiancée. Despite this Travis used his expertise to prove that these allegations were false and that there was an ulterior motive of jealousy on the part of my ex and that she was using the legal system unjustly and unfairly in an attempt to further try to disrupt the happy life of me and fiancée.
Travis was dynamite in the courtroom as he controlled all situations with ease and professionalism ultimately winning our case. I can honestly say that calling Travis that night saved my life in numerous ways and I would tell anyone hesitating due to financial or any other reasons DEFINITELY MKE THE CALL TO TRAVIS, you can never put a price on these type of things and Travis is the right man for the job.

Travis Tormey Law Firm provided me with very professional and reliable support including court appearances. I had a huge problem and this law firm got me off with minimum fines and sentencing. This firm is outstanding and I recommend them 200%+.

While I understand the justice system is in no rush to deal with petty crime, I cannot say that investing a 1000 USD in services from Travis Tormey was worth it.
In fact, I can instead say that it was essentially worthless.
After physically going to court four times before a verdict was made, Tormey made one suggestion to alleviate the case (the second to last trial, of course) which the judge frantically denied.
I would contact him for updates and he would tell me we are still waiting. Instead of waiting around, I would ask friends in law school what they would do and make these suggestions to Tormey. He would deny and again, say we have to wait.
All in all, I did not need representation as he did nothing for me or my case. Would have been the same slow, uneasy trial if I stepped into court alone.
Now that all is said and done, he told me he would help expunge this arrest for another whopping amount because he 'only makes a few hundred out of it' and its heavy paperwork.
I would say do not waste your time.

When I found myself in a very difficult situation, I reached out to Travis Tormey and was never disappointed. Travis is very responsive and explains legal terms in a clear and understandable way. I hope I never find myself again in this type of legal situation, but if I do I will contact Travis Tormey immediately.

I hired Attorney Travis Tormey to handle a minor case and found him to be very personable, reasonable, and with expert knowledge of criminal law. He patiently answered all questions and provided me with legal options and best course of action. I found him to be compassionate, flexible, and good guy to have on your side. Easy to talk with and friendly. He presents himself very well and provided timely follow-up. A skilled professional. I recommend his service, especially if needed in Bergen county.

Travis is a real professional. I got in a situation with a loitering with intent charge. He answered all my questions and answered all my calls when I called him. Was on time for court and knew how to get the charges dismissed. Exactly what I wanted!

Mr. Tormey is a consummate professional. Our case was sensitive and complicated and unusually lengthy for a juvenile case. For 8 months Mr. Tormey faithfully worked our case and never failed to show for court once. Punctual, disciplined, knowledgeable, patient and responsive there aren't enough words of admiration and gratitude I can apply to him. My son's case was resolved in our favor and we owe it to Mr. Tormey's unwavering professionalism. I choose him based on previous reviews and I am so pleased I did as the excellent reviews are absolutely warranted. He made an unbearable situation so much more bearable with his calm demeanor. I highly recommend Travis to anyone needing a juvenile defense attorney. He knows the law and he knows how to navigate the judicial jungle. Without a doubt, one of the best attorneys out there. Thank you Travis for giving my son his life back, I will forever be gratefully indebted.

Travis has a great website, which enabled me to find him quickly when our son got into a bit of trouble while going to college in New Jersey. He did a fantastic job, getting our son a terrific result under the circumstances.
