A little background...since that's what I looked at when choosing Mr. Blauvelt:
I was facing charges for a DWI, Refusal to submit as well as Careless Driving ON St. Patrick's Day. Mr. Blauvelt responded IMMEDIATELY to my online inquiry pertaining to retaining him as representation and went right to work on explaining why he 'liked my case.' Needless to say, after just a month (to the day) of waiting and worrying, Mr. Blauvelt was able to tell the Judge and Prosecutor they "didn't have a case..." and they AGREED! I simply have a 60 day driving license suspension with no points (pending Defensive Driving Course completion). I mean...does it get any better than that? Mr. Blauvelt keeps it real, tells you possible outcomes and WORKS for your best interest. If you're reading this and haven't already made the decision to hire him, you're a fool lol. Thanks a lot Mr. Blauvelt and Rusheena (assistant) for being so great.

Simple assault, domestic violence issue. We were worried cause it shouldn't have gotten into the hands of the police. Wasn't necessary. Atty Blauvelt got the deal done, over, dismissed. We were relieved. DON'T go into court alone...wait til you see what goes on in there. You have trouble? Call Thomas C. Blauvelt no matter what town your troubles are in.jims

Just want to say this lawyer is amazing. If you are looking for a great, reliable lawyer who will get the job done then look no further. Just want to start off by saying when I first was on my search to hiring a lawyer I had emailed a few because I had no clue where to start, my husbands case was a complicated one from 10 years ago suspended license and within 5 minutes of emailing Mr Thomas he responded. He was so detailed and prompt in his replies that I immediately thought wow. The same day we received the contract and when we saw the fees, again, wow. I thought how can it be so less, his fees are extremely affordable compared to any lawyer I spoke to and I was a little hesitant. Throughout the next few weeks I had no doubt that I had made the best decision, Mr Thomas followed up with every email and phone call promptly and he was absolutely amazing. Yesterday was our court date and he worked his magic and everything was dismissed to a mere fine. Our outcome would have been a lot worse if we did not hire him, that is for sure. All my hesitations went out the window, he is absolutely the best. Just put complete trust in him and let him work his magic. He truly is worth triple of what he charges. Anytime we have any legal issues we will definitely be going to him without a doubt. He is the best lawyer in all of NJ.

If your reading this you probably are looking for a good lawyer because you have DWI problems. I was doing the same thing 2 1/2 months ago. I had 5 charges and 2 of them criminal. I did my reseach and came across T. Blauvelt just like you or else you wouldn't be reading this. Here are some things for you to consider. First, in New Jersey all DWI attorneys charge a flat rate retainer. So, you will pay the same amount to retain a lousey lawyer as opposed to an excellent one. Blauvelt will go toe-to-toe with any prosecutor, he dosen't get intimidated. His name rings bells before he even walks into the courtroom. Second, if you read all the Blauvelt write-ups, from his clients, you'll see that he consistantly gives his all. Not for anything, this guy has integrity, he's a winner. It's either in you or not. He didn't take my money and do the bare minimum. Blauvelt sent out the necessary paperwork(motions), and sometimes the prosecutor or whoever wants to drag things-out. Look, "We are guilty until proven innocent." Realize that! A prosecutor doesn't like when we have an attorney that isn't going to sell-out his client, especially the one in Englewood. Blauvelt got ALL my charges dissmissed and I got my $650 bail money back!!! The only reason why I'm writing all this is because prior to hiring Blauvelt I read the reviews like you are doing. I said to myself , "If I get results like all these other people I'm going to write the best review I can. If you do hire Blauvelt, be honest, listen to him, let him form his strategy. Good Luck ! By the way the charges were dismissed on 1/8/15

I came to Thomas Blauvelt visibly upset and depressed about my DWI charge. From the moment I stepped into his office and consulted with him, his experience and candid assessment of my case made me feel at ease, and I always felt like I was in good hands. He was always available for feedback and he clearly explained exactly where he was taking the case step by step. Through his knowledge and experience,he outlined a legal strategy that ultimately led to the outright dismissal of my DWI charge. I HIGHLY recommend the services of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt.

Thomas was great. He explained all of the options in my DUI and speeding case. He recommended a talented DUI consultant who reviewed my case and found testing device errors and inconsistencies. Thomas kept me in the loop at all times and was very responsive, within minutes, to every question I had. The DUI was dropped in the case by the judge, and I was very satisfied with the outcome. Thanks again, Thomas.

I had a case 17 yrs old, with a bond for Failure to appear, due to me not living in NJ.
Mr. Blauvelt took my case outlining all of the options and possibilities.
Not only was he able to represent me at a very fair rate,(I expected Double) but, as my Lawyer he, also was able to have my bond completely removed pending a request for placement on the docket.
The legal office kept me completely up to date, as the case was presented.
The final outcome was even better than I expected with a better than anticipated or discussed resolution.
If I ever need an attorney in NJ you can bet I will call Mr. Blauvelt !!!

The proposed suspension arose out of a guilty plea to illegal possession of another person's license in New York State. Tom was an excellent strategist, advising us of the steps we needed both with respect to the New York judgment and otherwise to have the proposed suspension dismissed without a hearing. He also made sure that the information supporting the dismissal was promptly brought to the attention of the State of New Jersy.
His was very responsiveto our calls, and his fees were quite reasonable.

I had 3 summons: 2c:28-4b(1), 2c:33-2a(2) & 2C:35-10.5A(3).
The summons 2c:28-4b(1) & 2c:33-2a(2) each carried 6 months in jail and $1000 fine.
The summon for 2C:35-10.5A(3) was the gorilla, though. The summon carried a fine of up to $200,000 and a year in jail.
I was in a lot of trouble, and I wasn't helping him either! I had demands that made this more challenging than it needed to be: I was a bestman in my brothers wedding, and my court date fell on his wedding. I was also moving that month, so I needed to wrap up my case quickly.
It was a mess.
I was scared, confused and I really didn't know what to do. I knew I needed a good lawyer, though. I am addicted to reviews, so I did my research on Hoboken attorneys and came across Thomas Blauvelt.
Thomas is my hero. He is endlessly passionate about his clients and to say that he changed my life is an understatement.
First off, Thomas was able to reschedule my court date so I could attend my brothers wedding.
Second, and likely the most important, Thomas was able to get my 2C:35-10.5A(3) completely dismissed!
Third, Thomas knew I was moving, so when he showed up to court he went straight to the prosecutor and was able to reduce my remaining charges to Breach of Peace! What is important to note here is Thomas took into account my career. I wasn't very aware of my charges showing up on job applications, so I never really asked him to take that into consideration, but he did!
In conclusion, Thomas was able to reduce my charges from around $210,000 and over a year in jail to $1,000 fine, no jail time and minimal record.
If you are looking for a Hoboken criminal defense attorney I demand you hire Thomas Blauvelt.
Demand "is" the right word, because if you are reading this review you need someone who is going to listen, care and, most importantly, get you through your own situation. It is impossible for me to "encourage" or "highly recommend" you to hire Thomas because that would undermine my faith in his abilities.
Thomas Carroll Blauvelt: Thank you for everything that you have done for me. I am immeasurable grateful.

I would like to commend Attorney Thomas Blauvelt and their offices. I hired Atty Thomas for a speeding ticket summons that i received.
He was very patient in explaining everything to me and also the options I have, which is why i decided to hire his services.
I recommend his services for any Speeding or Traffic Tickets.
Thank you again.

I received a serious traffic ticket two years ago when I was in New Jersey on business. They actually had a warrant out for my arrest. I called this firm AND HAD THE ENTIRE MATTER RESOLVED WITHIN A WEEK. Pleasant surprise. They get it done and quick.
