From the start I new we selected the best Attorney. Our initial Consultation with Alissa Hascup, was reassuring at best. I have a criminal background so, having to face another charge, I had to be sure of someone who was experience and no nonsense. I was pulled over and the car I was in was searched, (nothing was found in it), and ultimately I was arrested, this occurred only 2 weeks after I was released from jail. I live in Woodbridge, NJ and they are notorious for harassing minorities pulling you over for no reason. Well, 4 squad cars later, I was arrested. They gave my cousin, who was the driver, the excuse that the reason why they pulled us over was because the tags were expired, (he was not arrested).. Embarrassed of all this happening right in front of my house, and the bogus arrested, I wanted someone that would fight for me with understanding. Alissa Hascup invested time and effort looking into my case. She insisted before the courts, to produce all the allegations stated in their report. After 3 court appearances, they case was dismissed, because they were not able to show any truth in there report. It also, was found out that they lied about my cousins tags being expired. Therefore, requested for a dismissal because they still, after many months later, haven't been able to produce all items she requested. She went like a pit-bull and didn't let go!
Highly recommend Alissa Hascup! God Bless
Alissa D Hascup, is by far the best Attorney I have ever met. Alissa, not only saved me a lengthy jail time but got me an outcome, that I was not expecting. She's not you're average lawyer. She is very friendly, knowledgeable, responsive, knows what she's doing and delivered more then what was expected. I was charged with "Possession of weapon for unlawful use". A serious charge that could have landed me in prison for at least 5 years. I'll be honest, the case broke me down mentally and emotionally. I'm a father of five who was volunteering to become a county Deputy Sheriff. I was accepted by several law enforcement agencies and was frequently visiting a shooting range to practice shooting for the academy. One afternoon I made a wrong decision, while going to a range and made a stop before the range and all hell broke loose. It took 20 excruciating months to fight my case, Alissa convinced the state to give me probation. Normally on a gun charge you get a minimum 3 to 5 years of prison time. With Alissa's help, the Judge gave me 1 year probation. If you're facing weapon charges in NJ don't just hire anyone. Take my advise I lost $3,000 to a shady attorney before I found Alissa D Hascup. I still believe had I found her first, my case would have been dismissed.
Words can't describe how helpful Attorney Hascup was for my husband and I. I called her on a friday afternoon desperate to find answers for all the questions I had questions regarding possible charges against my husband. She answered all our questions and met with us the next day. My husband had to make a statement to police she guided us step by step on how we should handle the situation she called me early the day my husband had to render his statement and reassured me that everything would be okay and also gave me extremely helpful advice for our situation. My husband immigration status is pending but I know that if I need any honest legal advice regarding criminal law or immigration law I can refer to Attorney Hascup. I highly recommend her, she is an amazing attorney that knows what she is doing. Anyone I know that needs a criminal defense or an immigration attorney I will make sure I refer them to her. We are extremely grateful for all the help and advice she offered my husband and I during our time of need. If you need a good attorney CALL ALISSA HASCUP you will not regret it.
Alissa took care of my case which was an accusation for a leaving the scene involving personal injury in Paterson Municipal Court. She agreed to take care of my case for flat fee, even though my case could have dragged on way longer and taken much more work than a typical traffic ticket. My case did not make it to trial and her motion to dismiss the case was granted on the second appearance with her representation.
When speaking to her, she is professional, listens well, and relates well to your situation. She shows up on time, takes good notes, and knows her way around the court room, and offers time to discuss if you feel you need to discuss anything.
She did take several days to respond to emails at times, but I understand she was moving offices during the weeks my case was pending, so it may have been an temporary effect of that, and not typical of her.
She did recognize my concerns and responded skillfully to situations that unfold in court. She did exactly what is needed to get the job done and works fast and smart to that end.
I had hired Alissa to represent me in a false domestic violence charge. She is simply the best !! She treats you as a person and goes way beyond her retained contract to help you in what ever way she can. She spends countless hours to help her clients in what ever way she can, I would recommend her to anyone anytime period!! She treats you like family and you are left with the feeling that you what one has to do to repay her for all her help..
I just have to write a little note about how wonderful this firm is. I personally haven't needed their services but I have referred a couple friends and they had nothing but good experiences with the firm, specifically Alissa Hascup. My friends told me that she was great with a vast knowledge of the legal system and specifically their cases. I will continue to recommend this wonderful law firm to anyone that asks me.
Helpful, friendly, and professional attorney who will work as hard for every client as she did for me!! Would definitely use her again, should the need arise.
