Outstanding
Chris is an outstanding attorney! He is diligent, hard working, and persistent to win his cases. I would highly recommend Mr. Aiello and his firm Aiello Harris.

Very grateful to Chris, a highly respected former prosecutor
Chris Aiello is everything his impressive bio reads -- and more. With his background as a prosecutor, and his hard-earned reputation for excellence, he is able to navigate through the legal process with dignity and respect -- and get the best possible results for his clients. I was facing a very serious charge that would have impacted my earning potential for the foreseeable future. Chris believed in me, and my case. He fought for me, pleaded my case, and charges were dismissed. Chris is a partner in Aiello, Harris, Marth, Tunnero, Pastor & Schiffman, P.C. that has 16+ attorneys of all disciplines - which was very helpful in the various nuances of my particular case. Attorney Aiello has my highest recommendation ,and gratitude.

One of the Best
I hired Mr. Christopher Aiello for two traffic infractions and during the course of the whole process he was nothing short of professional and through his hard work he was able to get one ticket dismissed and the other one significantly reduced. I would highly recommend him for any incident.

Hands down the best lawyer around.
I had gotten into an accident which resulted in a pedestrian being injured quite badly. However, Mr. Aiello was able to completely dismiss my reckless driving and disregard for stop sign charges. Absolutely one of the best lawyers around, and he was very friendly and efficient. Overall could not have asked for a better attorney.

Professional and Empathetic
Mr. Aiello helped me with an employment contract I had signed with my current employer. He was very knowledgeable in the subject matter and had many other similar cases to draw experience from. He was also very easy to talk to, and answered all my questions in extraordinary detail. I would highly recommend him and his team, and will be sure to reach out if I need legal representation in the future.

Thankful
I recently retained Chris Aiello for a traffic matter. Mr. Aiello came highly recommended by my cousin. From our initial conversation he put my mind at ease, although the speeding ticket I received was pretty severe. Mr. Aiello made himself available each time I had a question or concern. He was very compassionate about my situation. I am grateful to have been represented by such an honest, professional and experienced attorney. I am happy with the result in this case and would recommend Mr. Aiello to anyone in need of legal services.

Amazing!
I have nothing but great outcomes from Mr. Aiello. He has helped me on multiple cases and has gotten only great results. When I was searching for lawyers I was grateful I found Mr. Aiello. The first conversation I had with him was exceptional. He was very understanding about my situation, he even took it a step further to ask questions pertaining to the case that I had left out, unlike many other lawyers I had dealt with. He went over the main points of the cases and made sure that I was 100% understanding the rhyme and reasons for everything Him and his staff are very professional. When you first appear at his office, you can start to see how serious and well-put together Mr. Aiello is about his work. The secretaries are very kind and helpful, made sure everything went smoothly. I strongly recommend Christopher Aiello. If you are ever in an unfavorable situation, Mr. Aiello will do his best to find the most optimal solution to your dilemma.

EXCELLENT
Chris is an outstanding lawyer. He is very knowledgeable and well prepared. He worked endlessly on my teenage sons case. My son was facing three 3rd degree charges. Chris was able to get two charges dismissed. If you're looking for someone who's professional, honest, and caring Chris is your guy. Thanks again Chris and your team for everything.

My over all Experience
Chris and his team was excellent. The professionalism that was displayed was refreshing. Most lawyers just want to get the process over with. Chris brought the humanity into the process. Through each step was through in what to expect and what the outcome was look like. He truly was able to put my nerve's to ease and get the best outcome possible. I HIGHLY recommend Chris and his team. I really want to say thank you.

Great ticket-handling case
Mr. Aiello was the perfect go-to when handling my traffic ticket. In terms of making the process completely stress-free, effective & quick, he simply hit it out of the park. A quantum leap compared to other law firms, Aiello is highly recommended in my book.

Excellent Service!!
Chris is an exceptional lawyer, I am very pleased with his services! He is very knowledgeable about NJ traffic Law and was able to reduce my ticket to be NO points and only a small fine. Also, his office staff was very responsive and on top of everything. Thanks again for all your help!!

Very happy with Chris
Chris fought our case, and we had very little chance of any success due to our circumstances. His persuasive skills worked magic, and the sentence went from 12 months possibility to 3 months. He knows the laws very well, is responsive and responsible, and truly cares about his clients. Our family is very thankful for his services.

Christopher Aiello is the best attorney I have encountered or seen . I hired him to represent me In a case were jail time was mandatory. He negotiated a deal that I would not have dreamed.

EXCELLENT ATTORNEY – I HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I was pulled over and arrested in Hillsborough on Memorial Day for a possession charge. I researched lawyers in the area and called Chris Aiello to meet with him regarding my situation. Mr. Aiello answered his phone early in the morning and agreed to meet with me even though his office was closed for the holiday. I was so grateful that he carved out time to open his office on his day off. This would be the precursor to how amazing my experience would be working with him. Mr. Aiello sat down with me and listened to all the events leading up to my arrest and immediately mapped out an action plan to help me build my character in front of the court. After following his advice of attending counseling sessions, support groups, and collecting character references, I not only had all the charges dismissed, the judge even commended me on all my hard work and told me to keep it up. Mr. Aiello entered the court with complete confidence walked me through what to do and say when it was my turn to stand in front of the judge. When presenting my case to the judge, he spoke with respect and summarized all the events I’ve done to improve myself as a person since the arrest. Without having Mr. Aiello guide me and be there as a resource, I don’t think I would have had the same results. I can’t thank him enough for all his help.
