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.

My dad, Sam Harper, just submitted a review of Jeffrey and I wanted to add a few additional comments as well. First of all, I agree with my dad and all the other reviews of Mr. Hark. Honestly, these reviews are really on point and reflect my family's years of experience and personal service with Mr. Hark's office.
I always feel comfortable calling Jeff to discuss my personal injury matter or any other legal issue which may or may not relate to my case. He always gives me his undivided attention, honest opinion, and professional advice. Sometimes I may just call him and ask about a Supreme Court decision or something that happened in the news and he always treat me like family.
I always feel comfortable speaking with Mr. Hark because he doesn't talk down to me, explains everything in a manner I understand, and helps me address the medical issues to make me feel better.
I would recommend Mr. Hark to anybody who is looking for a knowledgeable and experienced attorney who will help to make them feel better and take the legal issues off of the table. He has always given my family 100% and I know he will give your family 100% to get you the results you are entitled to!

Jeffrey has represented me on numerous personal injury and workers compensation claims over the last 20 years. Not only has he represented me personally but he has also represented my lifelong friend for a very serious criminal matter.
I'm writing this review today because Jeff has again settled a personal injury matter for me and obtain a very successful result against all odds and much to my surprise.
He is always open, direct, straightforward and honest with me and my family. My daughter is submitting a review today as well because she was so happy and pleasantly surprised with how easy Jeff is the deal with how straightforward and professionally he handled our personal injury matter quickly ( Settled in less than 9 months!!) and easily.
He is always available to speak with me directly, responds to emails, texts and phone calls to him at all hours. He is personable and reliable. I strongly recommend him to anybody looking for an aggressive, honest and responsible attorney to assist them with their personal injury, criminal, traffic or workers compensation case.

I was involved in a very serious truck crash as a driver for a small hauling company. My boss and employer required me to do certain things after the crash to hide evidence of the crash. Given the severity of the crash and my stupidity, I listened to my boss and as a result was charged with some pretty serious offenses. Jeffrey was direct, honest, straight-forward and handled my matter calmly, professionally and worked hard so I would not face substantial state prison time, lose my CDL, and my ability to earn a living. Jeffrey worked effortlessly with the Prosecutor to get me the best result for a bad circumstance that I placed myself in. Yes I did go to jail and yes I have a criminal conviction for what I did at the direction of a forceful and threatening boss but things could have been a lot worse. Jeffrey gave me good advice, and I was very satisfied with the ultimate outcome. He always called, communicated with me on a regular basis and I dealt with him directly on all major issues that involved by case and my life. Jeffrey told me he was aggressive and hands-on and he truly was involved in every aspect of my case from the beginning to the end.
As a result of this very same truck crash, I pursued a Workers Compensation claim that Jeffrey Hark also handled. I sustained serious psychological damage as a result of this truck crash and what my employer compelled me to do following the crash. Mr. Hark took complete control by scheduling me to see a psychologist, making sure I received the Temporary Disability Benefits I was entitled to and ultimately resolved my Comp Claim in a favorable light. Mr. Hark's knowledge of the Workers Compensation system was far beyond what I could imagine. I would highly recommend him to anyone who finds themselves involved in a work related injury.

I am a local trial attorney who was involved in a pretty serious truck crash 18 months ago. When I showed up in Court one day with my arm in a cast Mr. Hark asked what happened to me. After I described the crash, Jeffrey insisted he represent me (and I not represent myself) due to his significant experience handling major commercial truck crashes involving some of the largest trucking companies in the country. He explained to me the seriousness of my case and the manner in which the trucking industry insurance companies and their teams of lawyers will handle my case. He convinced me I needed someone on my side to work for me so I could focus on getting better and getting back to my professional life and family life!
Mr. Hark settled a case that has disrupted my professional life, my personal life and my family life in ONLY 18 MONTHS! He communicated with me via phone, email and regular mail almost weekly! I would be updated on the litigation progress, important Court events, doctor's appointments and discovery issues by Jeff personally, his legal assistant and his secretarial staff on such a regular basis, I knew everything they were doing! Although extremely busy with his other substantial criminal, personal injury and workers compensation practices, Jeff always took the time to discuss the serious issues in my case as well as the areas of weakness. Many of the legal issues Jeff brought up, honestly, I would have overlooked. His trial and litigation experience handling other large multi defendant, nationwide trucking company cases truly paid off for me! When we ultimately settled the case, I felt Mr. Hark did the best job for me! The excellent and quick result Jeffrey secured for me was really a result that I would not have been able to obtain, even as a personal injury attorney handling cases in South Jersey. I am really glad I ran into Jeff in Court 18 months ago, and entrusted him with my case! He is really an attorney’s attorney!
