    Hired Attorney

    Represented me for traffic infraction

    Mr. Abate represented me for a speeding ticket (plus careless driving) in New Jersey. I'm not proud of it -- a New York driver in Jersey doing 50 mph in a 25 mph zone, plus changing lanes without signalling ("careless driving") -- but thanks to Mr. Abate, it turned out well: two points on my license and a reasonable fine, but no car insurance consequence, and no black mark on my New York driver's record. Of the several attorneys who offered to represent me, only Mr. Abate did not over-promise and gave me the right advice: accept two points and the fine. Others told me I could walk away with a fine and no points, but they did not tell me about the possibility of New York registering "careless driving" as "wreckless driviing" on my record. Mr. Abate gave me excellent representation with the district attorney and during the short court appearance. His fee, although not the lowest, was reasonable and comparable to others. I especially liked his style -- not "Mr. Slick," but straightforward, approachable, and clear. And his office handled the paperwork, including managing my documents and handling my payment, quickly and competently.

    Hired Attorney

    Good Lawyer, Needs to show up on time

    I had a traffic violation case which was handled by Mr. James. On a higher note he did get the job done, I had to pay lot less than what I expected to pay. But he was late (over 30 mins), I was really upset at this part.

    James Alexander Abate’s response: “I am pleased that you were satisfied with the result and that you would recommend my firm. We pride ourselves on providing both excellent legal representation and fantastic customer service. In short, we want clients to feel that someone cared. We fell short on customer service this day. I was not happy at all that an earlier court appearance delayed me in arriving for your case. I think clients understand on the rare occasion when that happens. But you should have been kept informed by myself and my staff. We did not do a great job of that on that date with communication. I appreciate your review and comments and especially your even handed account of the good and the bad. Contributions like this help prospective clients and help us to improve..”

    Domestic issue

    I hired James in November of 2014 for a domestic dispute issue. Long story short I got into a relationship that was doomed from the start. I was with someone who all is only in it for money and the house we rented together. In short one night she started a fight I got an assault charge and restraining order against me. Just as her way In getting the house and out of the relationship so she could start over with someone she had been seeing. James saw all this and was able to negotiate on my behalf so that we went our separate ways and the charges were dropped. James and his staff got me through a very difficult time and scary as well. He always kept me up to date and follow through with everything. His staff was kind and very helpful with anything they could. He is by far the first person I would ever go to for anything again and would recommend him to anyone needing real help. He not only knows what he's doing he cares about what he does. Thank you again for everything you've done.

    Does what he says he will do for you!

    Mr. Abate handled a DMV issue for me and kept me informed throughout the entire case and made sure that he obtained the best reasonable outcome for me. Considering the situation, it was a very positive experience and I am extremely satisfied with his work.

    traffic ticket

    James Abate is a very good lawyer. I had a very good experience with his office too. There are no promises in this profession but he tried his best and everything worked out as expected. I was very relaxed and confident having James as my lawyer and would recommend him to anyone in need of a traffic violation representative.

    A great choice

    James and his staff were always respectful during a difficult and embarrassing time. I was always in charge of how the case went - no decisions were made without my approval. James is very knowledgeable and tries to find different angles to win your case. He was always available by phone and made evening appointments to fit my schedule. I would definitely recommend him.
