Best lawyer
I have, on behalf of our company, contacted Mr. Pressman for a tenant issue. He responded quickly and attentively. He is super knowledgeable, friendly and honesty. In past decades, we have contacted many lawyers. Without a doubt, Mr. Pressman is one of the most honest and trustworthy lawyers I know. My experience with Mr. Pressman was extremely favorable. I highly recommend that you use him anytime either for yourself or business.

Commercial Lease A+
We had contacted Jason to review our commercial lease. He was clear, friendly, and got right to the point. He went above and beyond what I expected from this experience and I left feeling confident about moving forward. Thank you Jason, we will reach out to you next time we need help!

Smart and Professional!
He is very professional, attentive and SMART! He deserves a five start rating all the way long. If you are reading negative comments about him disregard them all. Nowhere in the world a problem can be solved without a clear description of it and what you want from it as the solution. Define the problem that you face and he will legally solve it for you based on what you want as the outcome. He is one of the best Lawyer ever, I would recommend him to all. He takes times to listen, he acted accordingly from a professional stand-point. He is responsive, kind and smart! He is asking a lot of rhetorical questions, he makes you think outside the box to acquire the information you need. Full of wisdoms, Superb and Smart.

Marcie L. Tenant
Doesn't get better. Jason is the best, most competent,patient ,articulate lawyer anyone could ever hope to know. He helped me endlessly and always listened at length. He felt like my advocate and explained everything succinctly and in detail so that I could make informed decisions about 2 different suits; 1 with landlord, 1 with seller of a property who refused to return my deposit when the inspectors report turned up issues. If it weren't for Jason I could never have negotiated these treacherous waters on my own, a 2x widow. God Bless Jason Marcie L.

Great attorney
I needed advice regarding a legal matter . I called several offices and wasn't able to get a consultation. I contacted Mr. Pressman's office on a Friday afternoon. He listened, offered great legal advice , knowledge and understanding. After our phone consultation I felt more confident . He is professional , reasonable and caring .I will hire Mr. Pressman if I need representation. Thank you Mr. Pressman. I greatly appreciate it.

Very Good attorney
Jason was good hearten and intellectual person. I contacted him with apartment property owner issue, he able to understand the situation quickly and resolve the problem with very reasonable charge. I also contacted him for owner not giving me security deposit back issue. He solved the problem for me got my deposit back. Lot of people have opinion we wont get solution when we go to attorneys rather we just end up paying their bills including me. He is not like that. I really appreciate they way how he works.

Outstanding attorney
Mr. Pressman has been my attorney for the past 11 years. From handling my divorce to recently getting me out of a terrible financial commitment I couldn't be more thankful for his expert approach and commitment to help resolve my problems. Thank you for your consistently excellent law services.

Master at Negotiating with Prosecutors
Mr. Pressman helped me address what many of us dread getting: a citation for a moving violation. It's never just the fine that stings, but the points the come with a citation that affect your insurance premiums and hang like a dark cloud over your head for the next few years. Mr. Pressman reviewed the circumstances of my citation, clearly identifying a 'careless driving' citation as one of the more non-specific violations and used that information to discuss with the traffic court prosecutor options to amend my citation to one with no points. Instead of spending the day in the Millburn traffic court waiting with dozens of other defendants to face off against the prosecutor, it became a just a 45 minute trip with the final cost only a fraction of what the original citation would have impacted me with. I went right back to work relieved that I put this chapter in my driving experience behind me. Thank you, Mr. Pressman, for making my first experience with traffic court as easy at it could be.

Outstanding
Jason is an outstanding attorney. I require any attorney representing me to possess a relentless attitude and advocate on my behalf, coupled with an important requirement to respond back in a quick and timely manner. Jason possesses these attributes in abundance and represented me in an extremely difficult case against a tenant who used any legal means at her disposal to fight a justified eviction based on non-payment of rent. Ultimately, the tenant was ordered by the court to vacate the premises even after paying the back rent--no easy feat in a state where tenants are afforded perpetual leases once they are current on the rent. I highly recommend Jason to prospective clients.

Honest
Mr. Pressman was very professional and took the time to hear out my landlord-tenant situation, which was a complicated case. He was honest that in my case, an attorney would be of no benefit. His patience and frankness was refreshing from a lawyer and if we do need a lawyer in the future (if this case continues to drag on), his number will be the first we will call.

Great Lawyer
Mr Pressmanis one of the most honest and trustworthy lawyers we know. His intelligence and hard work helps us settle many business and personal issues.

Great Attorney Mr. Pressman, thank you
Mr. Pressman is a great, trustworthy, very professional attorney. He handled a complex real estate litigation case for me, from the time I first met him until up to the end date of the case, Mr. Pressman kept me promptly informed and also I was always able to reach him. Without Mr. Pressman's help I don't think I would have been this satisfied about the outcome of my case. I highly recommend Mr. Pressman and his firm for any legal matters as a perfect counsel. Thank you.

Bad dentist
Mr. Pressman took care of a very bad dentist who was charging for services that were not performed. The process was quick and painless, the exact opposite of sitting in the dentist chair.

Great landlord/tenant attorney
I have a 4 unit building and Jason did a great job in helping me deal with my tenants. He’s professional and always available to discuss my issues.

Did not resolve the case
Seemed like a good guy and lawyer but never resolved my case after I paid the retainer. I didn’t feel he advocated for me as a client or had my best interest in mind, despite that the other party was clearly in the wrong. The situation that resulting in me hiring him was very stressful to deal with and I ended up having to hire another attorney to complete the case.

Case was never resolved
Seems like a good guy but he didn't really seem to care or have my back in my case despite that I had suffered a great deal and was not in the wrong. He basically dropped the ball and I had to get another lawyer to resolve the case.

Did not resolve case
Jason seems like he could be a good lawyer and gives counsel. However, I always felt I had to constantly defend myself and advocate for myself and follow up. In the end the case was never resolved so I lost tens of thousands of dollars and suffered a great deal health-wise. This has not been my experience with other lawyers who actually seem to care about their client and resolving the case, especially if you had been wronged.So overall, I'm disappointed as I did pay the retainer fee the case was not resolved at all.
