I was lucky enough to hire Mark Jaffe to represent me in traffic court for a potentially 4 point ticket, which would have affected my insurance rate. Mr. Jaffe, a former prosecutor with years of broad-based experience, is highly respected in New Jersey courts which is always a plus. In spite of his large client base, he promises personal attention and seven day a week accessibility and he delivers on that promise. He genuinely cares about his clients. Thanks to Mr. Jaffe's skill and legal representation, my ticket was successfully bargained down and my insurance rate will not be affected. He is the right person to have in your corner if you are in a jam and I would recommend this excellent lawyer to anyone.
I recommend Mark Jaffe Esq. without any reservations.
I was fortunate to have met Mark and represent my case for a traffic violation. Mark is a man of his word, caring about his clients, Thorough in preparing and flexible; available 7 days a week as I met him in his office on the weekends to discuss our case as well as got to know him as a person of Integrity. He prepared me for the possible out comes and what he was going to get done for me - very reassuring. On the day of the court appointment, he was the first lawyer there to greet his clients and prepare them on court procedures and how best to respond to the judge.
He got the result that he said ho would get that was the best in my interest. Also his charges are reasonable too, does not nickle and dime.

I feel real fortunate to have him as my lawyer and i will surely refer him to all my friends"
Very effective, persuasive, reliable attorney. Powerful courtroom presence. Yet very personable. Former prosecutor experienced in navigating the courts. I have been a client of Mark's for over 20 years. Mark have been very helpful in resolving a number of municipal court cases, in some cases with complete dismissal of complaints. Once engaged, he is very well organized, available, able to articulate options in a simple language. From what I have seen, Mark is very persuasive with the courts, is very well respected, while at the same time tenacious in getting the best resolution for me. His experience as a prosecutor in New Jersey really helps in evaluating the options and coming up with solutions that the courts can live with. I especially would recommend him when the stakes are high -- he is both very experienced and reliable.
Mark Jaffe is absolutely fantastic. He changed my whole perspective on how lawyers can really be. I've known him for several years and couldn't be happier. He is loyal and one of the most caring lawyers I know. He is the Go 2 Guy for Rutgers University students.
He has helped all my friends in their cases and everyone walks out of court satisfied with his help. Mark Jaffe is a lawyer that works with you. His knowledge of the court system is impressive and he is reliable and is there WHENEVER you need him. He responds to emails quick and is just a phone call away. Mark Jaffe provides free phone consultations to everyone which is such a great help to us college students. Mark Jaffe is dynamic and as a former prosecutor he knows everyone. He honestly is a very knowledgeable lawyer that is patient yet he doesn't waste a minute of your time. He is hardworking and so is his staff. His staff is friendly and also ready to assist you in your matters. Everyone in the court system is familiar with Mark Jaffe, so I highly recommend him.
I would not go to any other lawyer beside Mark Jaffe only because he is guaranteed to give you results. With 28 years of experience, he knows everything and can help anyone.
Mark H. Jaffe is the best lawyer I could ask for! I had both Superior Court and Municipal Court cases and was extremely worried about the outcome and my future. (I am in college). Mark came to the rescue, and with a lot of hard work and his very persuasive powers he managed to get all charges against me dismissed! I am beyond impressed by Mark as is my dad. He is truly an amazing lawyer and I will now recommend him to all my friends. I never had trouble contacting him, as his office is open seven days a week and he even gave me his two cell #’s! He was also easy to reach via E-mail. Mark is dependable, trustworthy and a very articulate lawyer who is obviously very comfortable in the court room. He handled himself in the courtrooms we attended with confidence, turning my horrible situation into a positive outcome that I did not even foresee as possible. He is truly a diligent, articulate and meticulous man and has become a part of my family (I have been to his office so much). My father and I are truly fortunate to have found the perfect attorney. I highly recommend Mark H. Jaffe to anyone put in a situation like mine where so much is at stake that they need a great lawyer who really cares about them. I am truly in awe at the results Mark helped achieve. Even the motor vehicle charges in one of the cases, the main reason for my crimanal charges, and the basis for the stop by police, were dropped! I sleep a lot easier now knowing I made the best choice in having mark as my advocate. Very effective. A+
Mark Jaffe in one word: outstanding!
Yet one word is not enough to describe him. Mark is that rare and special lawyer who goes above and beyond to make sure his clients get 110% from him. Communication with Mark is terrific, he can always be reached and calls you back ASAP when he is unable to talk that moment. Mark's vast experience, from court clerk to former prosecutor, make him an excellent choice for a lawyer. He knows the laws, the court system and the best way to defend his clients. He is a lawyer like no other! Prepare to be wowed!!!!
My experience with Mark Jaffe as my attorney has been terrific. His expertise and caring for my needs exceeded my expectations. He can be reached whenever you need him and I cannot overemphasize his excellent communication skills. I got great results and would recommend him unreservedly.
When the cards were stacked against us with a legal problem, we called Lawyer Mark Jaffe
first and that brought us fantastic legal representation right away:
· His first letter to us explained how the legal system really works, not like on TV, and he was
available to us by phone, email, and in person, seven days a week, when we needed him.
· He then told us what we needed to do immediately to present an aggressive defense back to
a system that we thought was biased in someone else’s favor.
· He became the single point of contact for us right away so all people involved in the lawsuit
knew they needed to speak to him, so we were not intimidated with legal language and
· He was prepared and had a strategy ready to go so our “Day in Court” went as well as it
possibly could have. We were saved a blemish on our driving record, DMV Points, and
· I could see that his legal manner with the Judge and the Prosecutor was respectful but firm
in our defense, and it worked just as he said it would.
· His up-front “flat fee” was exactly that, no other charges or fees later.
· I can not imagine how our case would have turned out if we had not retained Mark Jaffe
as our Lawyer and I would wholeheartedly recommend him for any type of legal problem,
large or small.
Excelent, inteligent lawyer
Mark was a great lawyer for me in my case.I was charged with a felony charge and 2 misdemenors. He is there for his clients 24/7 litteraly he was available to answer all questions regarding the case. He is caring and compassionate. This was a first offense for me, i decided to call mark because his experince greatly exceeded any attorney ive researched. he truly cares for his clients and hes not afraid to show it. This was my first offense. When i first went to his office i was scared and confused but right after i left i felt like the world was lifted from my shoulders. He is not only my lawyer but a new friend he has always welcomed me to come in to his office or meet somewhere closer when transportation was an issue. Also he was more than reasonable with the price. Needless to say he got my criminal charge charge and a disorderly persons offense DISMISSED, he even downgraded the remaining disorderly persons offense to a petty disorderly persons offense. That to me is amazing and i know from seeing other lawyer's performance in court room that Mark has the know how
