I faced a 1st offense tier 2 NJ DUI offense, which would result in a 7 month license suspension. After reading Avvo reviews of lawyers in my area with extensive DUI experience, I reached out to Mr Garber.
He was very knowledgable of the entire NJ DUI process and was very familiar with the court, judge and prosecutor I would be facing. After a 2 month discovery process from the NJ State police, we had our hearing date. Mr. Garber was able to point out that there were some procedural errors by the arresting officer. This effectively got the breath test dismissed and left the prosecution with no option than to rely on the field test and reduce my offense to tier 1 (3 month suspension vs 7 months if the breathalyzer test held up). It was money well spent!
Mr Garber saved my ass,I was driving home one day and passed out driving from lack of sleep from the night befor .while driving I cut a telephone pole in half ,drove my car in the woods and clipped a few more trees,I had prescription drugs in my pocket ,my urine had cocaine and amphetamines in it,mr Garber had my urine test thrown out "the judge never knew about any of the drugs and urine sample" I couldn't believe he got me out of a DUI ,he got me down to a wreck less driving ticket.mr Garber saved my ass .i would recommend you call Steven Garber if you have a pending dui,they say no one gets out of a DUI in newjersey .well mr Garber did it for me,
Mr. Garber recently helped our son with multiple traffice offenses including DWI. He is only 18 and this was a disaster situation for him and for us as his parents - as it is our insurance that would've taken the hit. Our hope was to get some of the tickets reduced to minimize the financial impact of his mistake. Steve went so far beyond any of our expectations! His relationship with the court is impeccable and he was able to work with the prosecutor and get the major charges dismissed and the DWI reduced without any surcharge to our insurance. Our son receive the minimums allowed by law on the only ticket that remained - with everything else being dismissed. It was an outcome we didn't even think was possible. He was very open and communicative through the whole process. I would highly recommend him . After his first consultation we knew our son was in good hands and his fees were very reasonable. We spoke to several attorneys and they were almost always twice the price if not more. To have this level of professional service at his reasonable fees, he truly is an outstanding attorney and he could very well charge and receive way more than he does. This alone speaks volumes about his integrity, I would recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney for anything traffic or alcohol related - he is outstanding.
Steven Garber provided me with outstanding legal representation. His knowledge and experience in all matters of my case was self evident. Steven made sure I understood my legal situation and discussed my options. He was able to reschedule court dates to accommodate my current work schedule which consisted of travel outside the state. Steven made a very difficult situation as painless as possible. I was able to receive the best outcome possible in my case due to Steven's expertise.
I was charged with a DUI in 2010. I contacted Mr Garber to represent my after an internet search. After the first payment of the fee he had the hearing postponed.In the months that followed there was minimal communication and at my court date he was 1.5 hours LATE! I saw no value add. Please try another attorney or just save your money for the fines!
Mr. Garber represented me in court in December 2011 and, after talking to the prosecutor, ended up getting me the minimum punishment with two other charges dropped!
Steven was professional and caring from the first time we spoke. During the consultation he explained everything to me and answered all my questions. He was honest about what the end result could be and made no promises, however he stated he always attempts to secure the best possible end result. Once my case went to trial, he was able to secure that best case scenario for me. Although I have learned my lesson, if you find yourself in this type of a situation, I strongly recommend Steven's assistance.
