While the experience of being in traffic court as a defendant is never pleasurable, having a knowledgeable, experienced, and personable attorney like Elliot gives one as much comfort as possible. He has the desirable combination of in-depth knowledge of NJ traffic law as well as a great disposition to put his clients at ease with any situation that they might find themselves in.
Mr. Stomel quickly became invested in my daughter's case as if she were part of his family. At our first meeting, he thoroughly explained every possible scenario and formulated a sensible strategy on how to proceed. We immediately knew that we had made the right choice for representation and that we were in good hands. We were kept informed throughout the process all the way to the end of the case. I cannot thank him enough for expertly and amiably navigating us through the system to the most positive possible outcome.
If you are looking for the best attorney to represent you in traffic court, look no further than one Elliot S. Stomel as you too will be in good hands.
I called Mr. Stomel on a Saturday seeking representation for a Careless Driving charge and received an immediate reply. He readily offered to meet with me that Monday even though it was a holiday and his office was closed. He spent ample time laying out all of my options, explaining them clearly, and answering all of my questions of “what if” and “how about this”. He immediately took over the entire process from start to finish which put me at ease, especially since I was dealing with the chaotic Camden Court system.
The day of my court appearance went far better than I could have ever done completely on my own. Mr. Stomel managed every aspect from the moment we arrived to when we finished just two hours later with the sought after result. He is very knowledgeable about the law, the individuals working within the court system and he recognizes how they are inclined to evaluate each case.
Mr. Stomel treated me as an individual in need of help in a bureaucratic system that seems intended to frustrate and confuse the average citizen. If you need representation, Mr. Stomel is a consummate professional who will work tirelessly for you, to achieve the best possible outcome.
In addition, I first heard the name Stomel from my husband who was represented by him in the early 1980’s. To this day he still raves about what an exceptional lawyer he was, even then.
ELLIOT IS SO MUCH More then just a knowledgable attorney. His skills translate into more then just consultation ,, but rather he speaks honestly to all his clients and he makes them feel as confortable and at ease during a very stressful time in their life, He is not only focused on doing the very best for his client, he also wants his clients to know he will fight and do everything in his legal arsenal to make you feel confident . Ive never felt more at ease during such a Difficult time in my life . It was only because Of my confidence in Elliots abilitues.....He is also a person who can focus his attentions on specufics that he realizes will be the center of all your concerns. He is very good at approaching each indivual facet and having a sound legal answers. Ive only had two occassions in my life where I needed the services of a attorney. My first occasion was in similar contexts. Well with Elliiot Stomel , I saw the differences from a lawyer who can be a mechanical,, to a lawyer like Elliot who can give his clients total commitment and constant attention..
Elliot Stomel is an experienced and friendly lawyer who will work hard to help your case. I was facing a serious speeding violation and possible prison time. When I first met Elliot, he did not guarantee any results, but he fully explained all of the possible outcomes. Elliot's thorough knowledge of the law was impressive and he told me exactly what to do in court. His services are offered at a flat rate and he will not charge you extra if you need to go back to the courtroom for multiple appearances. In addition, Elliot will never schedule two clients at the same hearing. This means that you will have his full undivided attention during any hearing or trial.
Elliot took an exceptional approach when he represented me in court. On the morning of my court date, Elliot contacted me a half hour before the hearing. He was already at the court room and he was meeting with the prosecutor to see if they could arrange a plea bargain. When I arrived at court, he greeted me in the lobby and sat with me in the courtroom. He made a very strong case in front of the judge. The final verdict for my case was wonderful. He was able to take a major violation down to a minor ticket. I could have ended up serving jail time, a lengthy suspension and thousands in fines. None of this happened, thanks to Elliot's intelligent, respectful, and serious attitude.
After the hearing, Elliot still provided his help in explaining the next steps to recovering my license. He fully understands the traffic law, because of his 37 years of experience. Do yourself a favor and hire Elliot Stomel to represent your case in court. His consultation is free and he is always willing to talk. He was in touch within minutes whenever I needed to speak with him. There was never a question that he could not answer. Overall, I am delighted that I took Elliot with me to court. His knowledge, support and experience made my entire situation less daunting and more manageable. I recommend Elliot Stomel to anyone who needs a top notch traffic attorney.
I was charged with DUI and Refusal for Breathalyzer in NJ (Hamilton township), possibly facing 1yrs loosing my license and massive fine and classes , after tons of lawyer's research, I decided to go with Elliot, I found Elliot's manner to be great. He was extremely friendly, didn't just talk without listening, and he took me seriously. It came across right away that he is smart and very experienced and knowledgeable on DUI and traffic law and how the courts in NJ operate, He always show up in court 15-20min early, and he will ONLY represent you doing your court time unlike other lawyer represent 3,4,5... client at the same court day, He kept me involved and I came away feeling like we were teaming up to take this on rather than handing my case over and hoping for the best. His great manner also extended to the courtroom. He comes across as confident, respected, and experienced and he made me feel less nervous right away. He told me what was going to happen at each court visit and what the likely next step would be. Elliot is very very very easy to reach, he return phone calls very promptly, At the end, my refusal dropped and I got a very minimum fine for my case, I feel like I couldn't do this without Elliot.
PS: I'm a PA resident and it happened in NJ, got arrested by the NJ state trooper.
I was caught speeding at over 100 mph in a town in New Jersey and got six tickets including reckless driving as a result. Whereas in most other towns there usually do not invovle jail terms, as Mr. Stomel told me, in this town, due to the particularity of the judge, I was expected to serve the terms of 15 days. Mr. Stomel reviewed my circstances amd recommended some strategies for me to take, and in the court Mr. Stomel was able to have connections and have personal discource with court administrtators, the prosecutor, and the judge, due to his long years of having serving as a public prosecutor and as a lawyer in New Jersey. In the end, all my other charges were dropped except for the speeding one, and the sentence was reduced to two days weekend jail, which essentially meant one day as on Sumday only signing up was required. I was very satisfied with Mr. Stomel's service and I do not think I could get better results with ay other attorneys.
I was given a speeding ticket for going nearly twice the speed in an area that was not familiar to me. A lawyer friend suggested I get legal representation from someone familiar with that specific municipality. I instantly found Mr. Stomel online and after only a brief phone conversation, felt that he was someone I could trust. He handled my case with honesty, making no promises but maintaining an optimistic outlook. In the end, his approach in negotiating a lesser charge was successful and I was more than relieved to avoid points and more importantly, a license suspension. I would recommend Mr. Stomel without hesitation.
Elliot was very helpful, even when I called him at times that may not have been the most convenient he either answered or returned my call promptly. He was very honest about what the outcome could be but always made sure to keep a positive outlook. I was completely satisfied, and had been told things by other attorneys that almost swayed my decision, but having viewed his reputation and knowing that things can take a sudden turn I stuck with him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a man of his word in the area. He also has a great personality! Thanks again!
I first spoke with Mr. Stomel, seeking representation, in late October of 2014. During our first meeting Mr. Stomel provided me with more information on my case than I had previously known. I highly recommend Mr. Stomel.
No matter the charge, if you need a lawyer this is the guy. His prices are fair and he is honest in what he can do for you. I felt I could call him with any questions I had and always new what was going on with my case. He reassured me throughout the entire process and was very professional. If I ever need a lawyer again I won't hesitate to call him.
