Elliot Stomel was very professional and knowledgeable on ALL information. He was very easy to reach whenever I had a question and didn't just see me as just another client. He actually cared about the result of this case.
I had three tickets; DUI, careless and reckless. I was charged previously with a DUI out of state 3 years ago and usually in NJ it still will get recognized. Elliot Stomel went above and beyond using his knowledge and connections to get my tickets reduced down to only a FIRST offense. I was and am very pleased with the outcome all thanks to Mr. Stomel!

Elliot is a straight shooter. He is knowledgeable about his speciality, DUI defense, and I assume also about criminal defense. He is also familiar with the operations of local courts in the South Jersey area. If it IS possible to get your case dismissed, he will find a way! Unfortunately in my case that was not possible, and I know that for a fact - because Elliot reviewed the state's evidence against me, and questioned me, looking for every possible avenue of relief. I am impressed with his conduct and thorough advocacy. Though it is impossible to plea bargain a DUI in NJ, he got me the minimum penalties, had 3 other tickets dismissed, came close to knocking-off the ignition interlock requirement, and saved me 7 months of interlock requirement that does exist (about $700 for this period) during the duration of my my license suspension. HIS fee is also reasonable, and he is transparent. For what it's worth, he is also loquacious and personable. His charisma is disarming when wielded against bureaucrats! Another bonus when I walked away after paying the fines without confiscation of my license (to be used for identification purposes until reinstatement.) DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE! It sucks. But if you are charged with a DUI, choose Elliot Stomel for legal representation. He is a good man to have in your corner.

Mr. Stomel is a wonderful lawyer. He is knowledgeable of the law and knows his way around the Courts. Mr. Stomel helped my family with several traffic tickets and the results were excellent. Additionally, he is respectful towards his clients and explains everything very clearly. He is easy to reach by phone or e mail and always responds promptly.

There is a long list of available attorneys in this area and I am so relieved to have found Elliot Stomel to help me with issues in court. He made sure I was very indformed as to what charges and possible outcomes I was facing.
I know that every outcome is different for each case, sometimes it can be all down to luck- so why should we even hire anyone at all?
I believe because of Elliot's attention to details and years of professional service not only set him apart from other lawyers, but ensured us the best possible outcome that day. As we were standing there in front of the judge I knew we were fully ready and had no doubts as what to expect. Elliot even made sure he would be the first one in the courthouse before the dozens of other cases to be heard that day.
My case had a much better outcome than I had feared or even hoped. I certainly would never have achieved such a resolution on my own. Elliot even caught a mistake on the receipts and went back to fix what could have been a problematic future issue. What a relief to have had Elliot Stomel and his years of great service by my side the whole time.

In the aftermath of a series of the worst decisions I've made to date, hiring Elliot was one of precious few things I got right. Charged with DUI, reckless driving, and refusal to submit to a breath test a long way from my usual base of operations, I'd done a rather spectacular job of painting myself into a corner. Elliot was one of six attorneys with whom I had consultations. He was the most informative of them all, and accurately cited the likely damages. Throughout preparation for my appearance in court he kept me aware of his availability for direct communication and his plans for my defense. All necessary documentation was forwarded by mail in a timely manner. He remained frank, but professional, and reassuring.
Through a well planned and expertly executed negotiation with the prosecutor, Elliot was able to arrange dismissal of the DUI and reckless driving charges. A moment's preparation gave me everything I needed for what was ultimately an easy process with the judge. I faced first offender charges for the refusal to submit to a breath test, and was sent on my way. I watched some others have a much rougher go of it in that courtroom, and there's no doubt in my mind that Elliot's experience and knowledge shepherded me through. I'd give a ten-star rating, if I could.

Elliot was a life saver for our family. We were in a very difficult time with our son, and Elliot immediately instilled confidence and calm in all three of us. He was terrific with our son in terms of making him comfortable, coaching and guiding him much more so than simply on his case, but also offering advice, wisdom and guidance that was invaluable to us as parents. Elliot brought a sense of calm to all of us that we could get through this time, and that our son could move past it in a positive way. His extensive knowledge of the law, coupled with his vast network within the court system and the relationships he's built over time, allowed him to navigate for us, give us trusted advice that we believed in, and achieve the best possible outcome for our son and our family. I would HIGHLY recommend Elliot for anyone looking for an extremely effective attorney who is immediately available and responsive, trustworthy, instills confidence and get results. Rest assured if we ever need help again, we would not use ANYONE else!

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.
