  • John Francis Renner

    Jim Lynch epitomizes the trial lawyer of ages past. A truly dedicated and talented lawyer. He is a recognized expert in the field of criminal defense in New Jersey and highly regarded by his peers both in the criminal defense side and the state and federal prosecutor side. We have served as opposing counsel on several different matters and I have found his trial skills second to none.
