Excelente Advogado
Definitivamente o meu salva-vidas!! Eu me vi enfrentando acusações de DUI, eu estava completamente assustada e perdida, até que eu encontrei o advogado Anthony J. Vecchio. Ele me acalmou e com todo o seu conhecimento e expertise, me orientou em todas as minhas dúvidas, eu nunca me senti sozinha ou confusa durante o meu processo. Graças ao trabalho e dedicação do Anthony Vecchio, ele conseguiu um resultado muito melhor do que eu imaginava. Se você estiver em apuros como como eu, Anthony é quem você precisará ter ao seu lado.

Great Attorney!
Anthony Vecchio represented me at a hearing in Manville Municipal Court. Having had no prior experience in court, I experienced stress prior to the event. Thankfully, Mr. Vecchio educated me on the court preparation and court procedures, thereby lessening my anxiety. Mr. Vecchio was extremely well organized and kept me informed on every step of the procedure. I am extremely well pleased with Mr. Vecchio and his handling of my case.

The Best Defense Attorney in Central New Jersey
Anthony is an outstanding defense attorney and is simply the best you will find in central New Jersey. From my first call to the resolution a couple months later Anthony expertly handled our case throughout. He was confident, professional and compassionate. He is always available for questions and communicates updates via email regularly. In the end, Anthony was able to obtain an excellent outcome to our case. If you find yourself in need of a defense attorney, look no further! Anthony is really the best of the best. Thank you for everything.

Case in West Windsor
I was trapped in a case by my husband and I hired Anthony to help me out.This was in New Jersey. He got me out of the dirt and I can only be grateful that I approached the right attorney and a good one. Thanks Anthony and may god bless me forever. I certainly would not have liked a offense in MY name when I did not even have any driving tickets - I consider myself as the safest driver in the whole world. Thanks again Anthony. You are the greatest lawyer that exists and I will be always grateful to you!

Top Notch Representation
My family and I have used Anthony now on several municipal occasions and I can confidently say that we would never look to any other attorney in New Jersey. He is patient, forthright and in each engagement has secured the optimal and most positive outcomes I could have hoped for. This is not a one time, one off experience for my children or myself, and I share this so others do not waste time elsewhere. He is a pro, right to the point, brings clarity to the situation and his credentials and reputation will precede him to your benefit, as I have personally learned first hand. Highly recommended - and not just in Monmouth County.

Felony charge downgraded to misdemeanor
I am so happy I hired Mr. Vecchio as my lawyer. I was terrified of what could’ve happened to me, considering I am in college and I did not want a criminal record getting in the way of my future job. Although I am terrified of what could happen, I just have to wait one more year to get this expunged. I was charged with a felony and honestly I did not know what I was facing, but I knew it was nothing good. I contacted him and I wasn’t able to make the first court date, so not only was he able to move my court date and commit to everything he promised, I just had to pay a fine and was able to only be charged with a misdemeanor. My future was not ruined through my stupid mistakes, with the help of this amazing lawyer. Thank you!

Weed charge
Mr. Vecchio was very helpful. This was my first (and last) charge and he helped through out the process so much. He was attentive, listened and figured everything out. I got all charges dismissed, and even was able to start the process to remove that from my record. I’d definitely recommend him and his services to anyone!

Above and beyond
After being arrested and facing 4 felony charges dealing with the stressful task of finding the right lawyer and attorney to defend me was extra stress I couldn’t afford. I am so fortunate to have found Anthony who was affordable professional and super effective dealing with my case. Not only did I get all the charges dismissed, I did not have to do probation, and I did not get my license suspended. Walked out of court with a misdemeanor. My life was not ruined by a stupid mistake and I am extremely grateful that I chose Anthony as my attorney. I am definitely recommending any and everyone to this professional. Thanks again Ant

An excellent attorney and just a wonderfully poised guy!!!!
Well, had run into trouble many years ago when I was much younger... little did I know the past will eventually catch up. I called this gentleman and explained my situation to him. What impressed me the most was his honesty. He was straight forward and did not give us runaround. He took a hopeless and frightening situation and he did exactly what he said he was going to do and got my case dropped. Ofcorse I had to pay some fines but that was a small price to pay compared to the repercussions. And as far as his legal fees,,,, you get what you pay for.... brilliant attorney!!!! Will recommend him any day! An outstanding person all around with great and vast knowledge of criminal law!

Great guy
I had gotten a ticket for driving on suspended 2nd offense. I desperately needed time to get some things in order, he easily got the case adjourned. I did what I had to do, and on the day of court he got the ticket downgraded to a small fine! I was very impressed. I was facing a big fine and up to 5 days in jail. I'm very happy with Anthony Vecchio's services. As much as I plan to stay out of trouble, if the need ever arises he will without a doubt be the attorney I hire.

The Best of the Best.
Anthony J. Vecchio was quick to work on our case. He's dedicated and determined on what needs to be done. Anthony was highly compassionate, helpful and attentive to our legal needs. He was very quick to respond to our inquiries and provided multiple options of solid advice and counsel. Additionally, Anthony displayed excellent negotiation skills in settling our case. The resolution of our case was far better than expected and essentially saved my wife’s life. We highly recommend him to others based on our experience as a client. The best of the best.

Excellent Choice That Can't Be Beat
I was facing up to 9 points on my license due to a large speeding and reckless driving offense. I hired Anthony and he was able to work with the prosecutor to completely drop the speeding charges and reduce the reckless driving down to a careless driving charge, saving me 7 points and possibly thousands of dollars down the road in surcharges. Anthony offers a very reasonable rate and for that price the services he offers cannot be beat.

Anthony went beyond my expectations! He knows the law, he found holes in the case against me. He was able to get my DUI, my refusal, and my traffic ticket dropped! Would highly recommend. Thank you Anthony.

The BEST attorney in criminal defense law!
Last fall, I had to deal with alleged felony charge for a stupid thing I did. If I got convicted, my life and profession would definitely forever be ruined. I hired Mr. Vecchio to work on my case. He is super proficient in defending me by using sound convincing evidences! He has gone above and beyond to work on my case! He is smart, pleasant, friendly, respectful, patient and thoughtful, he always answers my questions in a timely manner. Most importantly, he is such a GENUINE and KIND professional and really wants to get what is the best for me in my case! Of course the best result for me is to convince the judge to dismiss the criminal charge. And he DID it! I just can't thank him enough for what he has done for me in this case! Honestly, I just can not ask for a better lawyer! My great experience with Anthony once again proves that out of so many, HE is the ONE you want to choose to defend you!!!

Knowledgeable Lawyer That Gets Results
I have used Anthony twice in the past three years, and both times my license and a whole lot more was on the line, and both times Anthony was able to work obtain a favorable outcome for me. I owe my second and third chances to Anthony. He knows all of the intricacies of court cases and always comes up with the best plan of attack. That, combined with his responsiveness and attention to detail are what make him a truly special lawyer. Strong recommendations for Mr. Anthony Vecchio.
