  • Michael Johan Melkersen

    Steve is a wonderful attorney. I recently referred to Steve one of my clients (I primarily handle personal injury matters) who was facing some pretty serious charges in New Jersey. Because of a prior conviction, my client needed nothing less than a dismissal of these New Jersey charges or a not-guilty verdict. Steve obtained the needed dismissal. I highly recommend him.

  • John Robert Gorman

    Steve Altman is a preeminent criminal defense lawyer. He has the universal respect of judges and prosecutors, and obtains great results for his clients. For more than 20 years I have referred to Steve clients and their families who have needed representation in the criminal justice system. I cannot endorse Steve Altman strongly enough. He is the best.
