I recommend Michael Ascher
I hired Michael 1-6 months ago.
I hired Michael at an extremely stressful time. When I literally didn't know what each day would bring he was my family's rock: informative, pleasant and dispassionate about matters which required such professionalism. While we faced many unpleasant situations I always knew I had a person who would explain each one and provide a workable solution. Thankfully, my situation went well; nevertheless I knew that Michael would get us through anything we needed to face. His expertise, combined with real care for his clients, won't be forgotten. I'd recommend him to anyone faced with what seems to be an impossible road ahead--Michael will chart a course that will get you and your family through the darkest of times.

I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
Michael handled my Criminal Defense matter.
I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.
Mr. Ascher really stepped up for my family in a time of need. We're not from New Jersey and required an attorney during the week between Christmas and New Years. Mr. Ascher was responsive, compassionate yet realistic, and took a real interest in the welfare of my daughter throughout the process. We were able to reach an outcome that was fair to all parties involved in an expedited manner. I truly appreciate Mr. Ascher's professionalism and expertise and would highly recommend his services to anyone - particularly anyone with a teenager. He's walked many miles in the same shoes I wear, and having someone on your side who understands what it's like is an invaluable and reassuring partner.
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Michael's experience and litigation skills are unparalled in the area of DYFS / DCPP litigation. He brings a unique and extremely valuable perspective to this very difficult area of litigation. I would recommend him without any reservation.
I was taking on a high level felony case that concerned rare, esoteric areas of criminal law. Much research was needed in order to prevail. I spent numerous hours at the library and reviewed many law books. Few of them were as useful as the scholarly, yet highly practical online legal essays of Mr. Ascher. Intrigued by his writings, I contacted him over email and he graciously responded by calling me on the telephone. For almost 20 minutes, he took time out of his busy schedule and spoke with me about the unique legal procedures I would be facing and the strategies I would need in order to prevail. His essays and advice would prove to be of great value. Indeed, they helped me get the case dismissed, with prejudice. Mr. Ascher is a gentleman, professional and credit to the bar. I wish more attorneys were like him.
