Jef Henninger himself is extremely rude. However, I had the pleasure of being represented by his colleague William Maslow, who was very straight-forward, very courteous, and very professional. I am extremely satisfied with the work of the firm, but speaking to Jef the first time was not a pleasant experience. I recommend not being turned off after speaking with Jef, but to give the other lawyers a chance. The service is very expensive but definitely worth it.
I retained Jef Henninger for a child support emancipation case. It was not a clear cut case as the other parent was suing to emancipate my adult college student son. My son did not maintain a passing grade point average and I was extremely concerned. Jef Henninger took my case on very short notice and was able to obtain a very fair settlement that was beneficial to all parties including my son. It was handled quickly and very professionally saving both parents a great deal of money in legal fees. This also saved me, the custodial parent a lot of stress.
Had a TRO dismissed in 2003. In the first week of Sept 2014 I applied for a firearms ID card in Hunterdon County. After meeting on Dec 2014 with the detective handling my permit application, he told me that it might take a year or longer. Contacted Mr Henninger on Dec 22,2014. He faxed a letter to the local Chief, and the called the detective handling my application about the delay. Within a week I had my new FID card and handgun permit. Thank You
Jef's firm was there when we needed a good lawyer to help us resolve our mediation regarding our contractor that had walked out after Sandy storm. The case was resolved quickly and in our favor and he avoided costly court costs.
Highly recommend Mr. Henninger and his team. Got me into court quickly and were successful in gaining an emergent order for custody hearing, and ultimately, full physical and legal custody of my child. Helpful and knowledgeable throughout the process. Fair and straightforward billing. They have the experience and wisdom that it takes to be successful in the family courts.
Mr Henninger was able to get resolved a matter that had been ongoing for years with no/diminishing results from three previous attorneys.
I wish I had hired Mr Henninger first as my attorney, but I was first working with some "high priced" highly recommended attorneys that could care less what happened.
Jef resolved this matter as quickly as would be allowed by the complainant's attorney.
Jef Henninger and his group took the headache I had for over 5 years, in the matter of 1 month away for good. I highly recommend him for ALL and/or ANY legal services.
DCPP removed my children April 2014 (right when his book on a know it all on DCPP was released). I was informed at the court hearing for order to show cause that Mr. Heninger wanted to take the case to trial even though there was no facts on their case. Prior to going into the court room, he told me that he quit and will not work for me as I was argumentative with him. I agreed to a trial as I wanted my name to be vindicated and DCPP to present their falsified documents which never took place as DCPP dismissed the case September 2014. Many of my former colleagues are in disbelief of how this case was handled.
The lawyer who represented me from the Jef Henninger law firm was completely professional,knowledgeable and kept in contact with me at all times though he had a very busy schedule to deal with while he was working with other clients.Joseph Compitello had my case dismissed after a 10 week lengthy trial.He had my best interest at heart and represented me professionally and without prejudice.Anytime i called the office,there was always someone to answer the phone and direct me to where i needed to go.I would recommend this firm and Joseph Compitello to anyone with legal issues without hesitation.My legal issue was considered a rare type of restraining order filed against me which caused me tremendous hardship and anxiety.Feeling confident that i was in good hands relieved me of a tremendous amount of anxiety while this case was going on thanks to the professionalism of Joseph Campitello and the Jef Henninger law firm.I would use them again without hesitation.
Jef was very helpful in obtaining my pistol permit. He was knowledgeable and provided sage advice. I would definitely use his services again and would recommend him to family & friends.
