I would highly recommend Robert as your lawyer for DUI charges and any associated tickets. While initially meeting with Robert, he explained in plain English, any questions we had and the consequences to the impending charges. He attended the 7 or 8 court appearances required due to court backlog. He found there was reason to eliminate blood alcohol readings, due to particular circumstances of the DUI event. He presented this to the court and also had 4 out of 5 tickets eliminated. All this reduced our courts costs, by at least half, and eliminated another 3 year state surcharge of $3000, plus probably many points. The loss of license was agreed to 6 months for reckless driving, but would have been at least 2 years and possible jail time, if the DUI charges were not eliminated. Our car insurance would have also reflected an increase in premiums had this not ended so favorably! Robert did an excellent job of applying the law. Hopefully, there will be no further need of his services, but if so, we would return to Robert Pinizzotto to handle our legal concerns, as we have already. Thank you, again, Robert and Nicole!!!
I hired Mr. Pinizzotto because I felt he provided me the best representation. Mr. Pinizzotto is very knowledgeable about the laws of New Jersey and experienced working within the Court System. In addition to the remarkable defense I received, Mr. Pinizzotto provided me invaluable advice and guidance in preparation of my hearing and beyond. For that, I am most appreciative. Mr. Pinizzotto made a very difficult situation much easier to deal with during and helped me recover since. I would recommend Mr. Pinizzotto.
I would highly recommend this firm and specifically Mr. Pinizotto himself. When I found myself in need of a lawyer in the state of NJ I was unfamiliar with any firms so, based on a recommendation, I called this firm, and was extremely satisified. From the first phone call to the office I was treated with respect and was kept up-to-date on every aspect of my case.
It was with some skepticism that I read the glowing reviews here, but that dissipated upon speaking with Mr. Pinizzotto and his staff. Not only was the fee I was quoted more than fair, I was told that even if the case went to trial I would not be charged more. I don't know if this is the norm and I don't want to set people up with unrealistic expectations. SO, let me tell you a few specifics of my case! I was initially charged by TWO different municiplaties for what would have been a 3rd DUI in ten years, between two different states. The first order of business was to consolidate these into one case to be handled by one court only. In this, we were successful. I was still facing the possibility of significant jail time. My attorney and his staff were very attentive and helpful through a succession of court dates, and were prepared and willing to go through the steps necessary to mount a defense based upon my medical history. This turned out to be unnecessary as out of the original 5 charges I was facing we managed to reduce everything down to one reckless driving charge, which I gladly accepted. I was in a dark place as this was all unfolding, from the incident onwards, and could have had to deal with a dramatic change in life quality, but I took a gamble on Mr. Pinizzotto and things turned out for the best. This is the lawyer to go with!
I was advised that the most I would receive for my DUI is a 1 year loss of my driver's license. I lost it for 2 years and this was my first offense. My job requires me to have a valid license, unable to work and now possiblity losing my house. Attorney suggested an appeal but I've called several times and they don't return my calls. Would not recommend this attorney.
I have had the pleasure and good fortune to have been represented by Mr. Pinizzotto on two separate occasions over the last several years. I have been more than satisfied with his representation and the ultimate results in each instance. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, likeable, and well known in most courts and by most Judges. I highly recommend Mr. Pinizzotto.
Bob was kind and friendly, and most of all compassionate and very knowledgeable about the law. He has an outstanding track record and I'm just one added to the list.... With also an outstanding staff. Signed a walking miracle.
Bob & his office Mgr., Linda made dealing w/a DUI much less painful. I was respectfully assisted & guided through my gruelling case, & remain in pleasant contact. *****!
Mr. Pinizzotto is extremely knowledgeable regarding traffic laws and options available to clients in such situations. He was very through in his review of my case and associated documents/reports. He is very professional, was easy to contact and responsive to my inquires and many questions.
Robert Pinizzotto not only saved my license but my job and house. As a previous DUI offender, I was looking at incarceration which would result in loss of job and the failure to pay the mortgage. However when the state police failed to provide discovery in a timely matter Robert took the inititive to have the matter dismissed and the state acquissed. Because of Roberts' knowledge and help all three major fines were thrown out and giving me a second chance in life, let alone saving my driving privaleges and countless fines for 10 years.
