I am another school bus driver who was injured on the job and hired Jeffrey Hark to represent me for a Workers Compensation claim.
I'm writing this review because I wanted to communicate how pleased I was with Mr. Hark's legal representation. Although he explained to me how limiting the Worker's Compensation system is and how frustrating it can be at times when we first met, I never really understood until I was in the middle of everything with two separate claims for the same body part.
Regardless of how complicated things seemed to me as an outsider, between the temporary disability benefits, medical benefits and permanency benefits, Jeffrey always took the time to explain things to me so I could understand them.
Jeff always took the time to explain everything to me and communicate with me. Obviously, just like all the other reviewers, this guy doesn't sleep. He's either emailing me at 6:30 in the morning or at 10 o'clock at night when he is finally able to stop running from Court to Court.
Seriously though, Jeffrey always answered any of my questions, was always accessible, and did his very best to get me the medical treatment I needed for what I consider to be a very debilitating injury. I give him five stars for his access, his congeniality and his straightforward and honest talk.

I hired Jeffrey Hark to represent me for a very serious, terrible accident that involved the death of my son. I agree with all the other reviews about Mr. Hark both professionally and personally. I just want to add a few of my own comments so people really understand the amazing, sensitive and professional attorney you can deal with.
Honestly, there were many days that I called Jeffrey crying because of the type of case we were working on together. He always provided me with his full attention, the utmost humility and patience. He and his staff gave me a reassured feeling that he was taking care of everything. Honestly, I couldn't handle anything and he did everything for me to make me feel better.
I never was worried about Mr. Hark working on my file or where we were in the litigation process. Not only did he keep me informed at every stage, he always sent me paperwork to keep me informed and knowledgeable of where we were every step of the way. When we spoke, which was often, Jeffrey always communicated with me directly, honestly and in a very professional manner. Whether I emailed him, his secretary or his paralegal, I always got a response either first thing in the morning, by the end of the day or a phone call immediately.
I didn't have to do anything and never worried about the outcome because I had such confidence in Mr. Hark's ability. Unfortunately, the tremendous success we achieved in the Courtroom will never bring my son back, however, I know I have a lifelong friend and attorney I can turn to if ever I need assistance again.

I highly recommend Mr. Hark for any Workers Compensation case you may have. I met Mr. Hark through a referral from a physician that was treating me following my work related injury. Mr. Hark met me wherever I needed him to because I was unable to drive at the time. He made sure I received all the medical treatment necessary and reasonable for my type of injury. He also made sure the insurance company paid me every dollar of temporary disability benefits they were obligated to pay both pre and post surgery.
Don't ever be concerned about Mr. Hark or his staff calling you back. He usually emailed me at 6:30 in the morning, his staff is in at seven, and they even email me at the end of the day after 8, 9 or 10 o'clock at night just to make sure I was OK and was receiving the medical and temporary disability benefits I was entitled to.
When it came time to settle my Workers Compensation case, I met with Mr. Hark several times, he explained everything to me and obtained the best and quickest result I could have hoped for.
His staff is always honest, direct, straightforward, helpful and very responsive to any of my questions, concerns, anxieties and needs as I moved through the Worker's Compensation process.
Again, I strongly recommend Mr. Hark. He always dealt with me on such a wonderfully warm and personal level during all of our meetings. He always made me feel comfortable and explained everything to me in a manner that I understood. I was very satisfied with the end result.

I have used Mr Hark for several workman comp cases. One being in 2001 for a motor vehicle accident. He just represented me recently and I am very pleased with his representation. He worked very hard and diligently to make sure that my case was handled to my satisfaction! I have recommended his services to several of my friends and co-workers! Thank you Mr. Hark!!!

I want to start this review by saying i dont really ever do reviews on anything, but in this perticular case i felt the need. I got into trouble a little under a year ago in a DUI situation in the Toms River area and i was in a bind. I never really got into trouble to this degree before and knew i needed alot of help. I looked around for a bit online but im not one of those computer saavy guys, to be honest i scrolled through and seen Mr Harks biography, and i just called him hoping this would be my guy. I got extremely lucky, i DO NOT RECOMMEND this approach, which is part of the reason im writing this. I called Mr Hark and he asked me some basic questions about my incident and gave me a price, a very good price. He was also extremely flexible with me being in an extremely tight money situation. Mr Hark worked on my case for almost a year, fighting tooth and nail and overturned my DUI charge (which usually never happens). DO NOT SHOP FOR THE CHEAPEST LAWYER. I have friends who paid for "discount" lawyers and are paying for it now with a 7 month DUI. Dont be that guy, pay for a lawyer who will fight for you, you'll save thousands later. Mr Hark has a customer for life. (But hopefully i never need him again!) Thanks again

I'm sitting at my computer looking at a settlement check Mr. Hark provided me today for finishing my workers compensation case. I am a school bus driver that was struck by a landscaping truck with a stoned driver. Thank God none of my children were on the bus as I was between runs heading back in the early morning 3 -1/2 years ago.
Although it took a while, I know Mr. Hark did everything he could to represent me against the landscape company, the driver who was criminally charged, and my own Worker's Compensation insurance company. I had lots of problems with my neck, back and shoulders as a result of the accident and Mr. Hark did everything he could to make sure I got all of the possible treatment.
Mr. Hark always answered my calls, stayed on top of everything and never made me feel uncomfortable about even the smallest question me or my family had about my cases. When it came time to settle the cases he made sure that I got the best result, The Worker's Compensation lien was as little as possible, my child support arrearages were all paid off, and my family was taken care of.
Thankfully I never lost my job and I'm back at work doing what I love to do, driving kids to and from school as always. I always tell them to stay in school so they don't become a bus driver.
At my job we are told about how dangerous school bus driving is and how the drivers on the road are disregarding our yellow lights and red lights more and more every day. I have read about this on Mr. Hark's website because he updates his website about school bus crashes around the State of New Jersey.
I'm sure it's not a question of if I'm going to be in another accident but, when I'm going to be in another accident as a school bus driver. Hopefully it never happens but if it does I will absolutely call Mr. Hark right away and get his name out to every parent who's child is on my bus. He took care of me and my family and I know that he can take care you and your family with reliable, professional and excellent legal services.

Mr. Hark handled my workman's compensation matter for me. He was always available for any questions. His staff is very pleasant as well. I would definitely recommend him.

Jeff has represented me for the last seven years on numerous Municipal Court matters, Superior Court criminal matters, and two substantial Worker's Compensation cases.
Not only did Jeff keep me out of jail on numerous occasions when I was virtually certain to go to State prison, save my drivers license when I was about to lose my license, but he was able to secure much needed medical treatment for my shoulders and neck at a time when I thought I was going to be totally disabled without health insurance.
I had a pretty significant workers comp injury quite a few years back when Jeff started representing me in Municipal Court. When we met he asked me why I was having trouble filling out a form during our initial interview. As a result of his one 5 minute discussion and questioning he opened up and handled the Workers Compensation Case resulting in several hundred thousand dollars in medical treatment, temporary disability benefits, and a very substantial permanency award for my shoulders and neck treatment.
Jeff always has been and continues to be accessible by phone, text, email, or through his office. He is always professional, assertive, aggressive and responds to my calls immediately. I have recommended him to numerous family members for personal injury and traffic matters. I have mentioned his name to numerous individuals I have met at physical therapy and doctors offices. My family has been very impressed by the individual attention he has given their cases, respect for their privacy and his aggressive efforts on their behalf. I must add that he has never once discussed any aspect of my case and has continually respected my privacy with my family members regardless of who it is and under what circumstances that they are asking.
If you are looking for an attorney that will give you the attention and litigation experience you deserve for your case I strongly recommend you call Mr. Hark to sit down and come to your own conclusions after an initial interview. I am confident that you will walk away excited and looking forward to the benefits of an aggressive, professional, thorough attorney to help you with your case.
