I caught a fairly routine CDS charge (my 1st ever offense of any kind) and shopped around lawyers because that's what you do when you get a CDS charge. I got an ad in the mail from his firm (along with many others local to where the charge was) and was pleasantly surprised when Mr. Branigan himself answered my call. He said all the right things in his consultation, that he specializes in CDS cases, that he gets more CDS cases in the area dismissed than anyone else, that he knew the judge, that he knew the prosecutor. My one hang up of hiring him on the spot was that he wouldn't give me an estimate of total cost (other local lawyers who sent me ads were charging flat fees per case). He must've heard in my voice that there was no way I was hiring him without an estimate of total costs. He finally relented and said there was no way it would be more than 5k. That was about double the amount of the highest flat fee I came across, but I figure you get what you pay for, and hired him because I really really wanted the complete dismissal he was selling. 4 court appearances (quite standard in CDS cases which rely on waiting for lab results) by one of his associates later and my final bill was triple his estimate. Triple. You do the math. I walked away with the same conditional discharge that any first time offender would get except that I had to pay 6 times as much for my lawyer as I should've. They send you itemized bills and there are 4 figure charges for things like a conference call with all lawyers in the firm, which I found completely outrageous and predatory. It strains credibility that a supposedly experienced lawyer who supposedly handles cases like these all the time would need to consult with every single one of his colleagues in a case as straight-forward as mine. I feel sorry for anyone else in my situation who hires them and truly hope this warning might help someone in trouble out there.
I cannot recommend strongly enough to any first time CDS offenders: just go with a flat fee lawyer.

I hired this Mr.Branigans firm for a speeding ticket (30 mph over the limit) and i was told that it would be handled, and it was. I was looking at 5 points added to my license but thanks to him it was downgraded to a zero point violation and all i had to pay was a small fine to the court. Really grateful i hired this firm and would recommend to my friends and family.

Branigan & Associates is definitely the representation you want to have for any case you might have! Sean Branigan is one of the most down to earth guys you'll ever meet and he truly cares about his clients. I met Sean at La Fitness and while having a conversation with him last week, I mentioned to him that I was in a car accident almost 2 years ago but never really pursued any legal action. Sean told me that I still had a shot at a good case as the statues of limitations is two years and my accident was February 3, 2015. Without Sean's insight my case would have be lost, but after reviewing my case, it is now currently on track so that I can receive what I should have received when my accident first happened! Thanks, Sean! Knowledge is power; don't be afraid to come to Sean with any legal questions you might have, he will definitely point you in the right direction!

i live in Texas and while visiting family in New Jersey I was pulled over and charged with multiple multiple violations including careless driving. I get a letter from Mr. Branigans firm all the way to Texas regarding the charges against me and i decided to give him a call. They said i did not have to worry about a thing, if i signed an affidavit i didn't even have to show up. I trusted them for representation and i got a copy of everything that was being handled. Shortly after they went to represent me in court, I got a call from my attorney and they said all the charges were dropped. I really did have nothing to worry about and the best law firm i've ever worked with. If I lived in the state of New Jersey i would make them my go to lawyers.

hands down one of the best lawyers you can have representing in your time of need he doesn't just represent you he get things dropped. he was on time helpful, when I called they took care of me and assured me everything was going to be ok. Hopefully you never need him or his team but things happen and if they do you should give them a call.

I hired Branigan Law firm for a traffic ticket violation. Though The attorney did not turn up for the court date first possibly due to miscommunication between him and the court, the firm sent an attorney Mr.Logan Terry next time even after I canceled their services at no extra cost. During my few minutes with Mr.Logan I found him to be a down to earth, soft spoken person though very highly experienced and he gave me clear, frank and valuable suggestions. He stood with me in front my Judge and the result I got zero points. Thanks Mr.Logan.

Had a telephone consultation with Mr. Branigan and hired him for a municipal court matter. He made it sound as though either himself or another partner would be there for representation. After you hire them and they have your money they out source to local lawyers and the attoirney who showed up in court for the case was extremely weak and inexperienced. I would avoid doing business with if I ever need to again.

I found the team of layers and paralegals to be insanely affective and incredible helpful. I was going through a really hard time while trying to get justice for my mom, he did not only get me an amazing settlement but gave a sense of security. Would definitely be a returning customer. Best Lawyers in New Jersey would recommend to everyone.
