Highly recommend Jeff!
After meeting with half a dozen of New Jersey's top lawyers (some of which were recommended through business acquaintances) I was disappointed and let down, until I finally found Jeff while doing a Google search online. With my busy work schedule, Jeff offered to come to my office FREE OF CHARGE to discuss the nature of my situation and possible solutions. Already by the first 10 minutes I was convinced he was the right guy to handle my case, which involved insurance liability loss coverage. Hiring Jeff as my lawyer was the best decision that I made. He started to work on my case right away, as he promised. He dug deep into the policy's hidden loopholes and nailed the insurance company - finding them negligent. Jeff brought victory with his cool attitude and knowledge. I highly recommend Mr. Jeff Plaza to all who face difficult times as I did.

Senior Vice President
I am fortunate to share the review of Jeff Plaza based on the outstanding service that he provided to me on a time sensitive issue. Jeff was a referral from a colleague and quickly engaged with me direct on my legal needs. He was honest and provided me with a sense of urgency that was beyond my expectations. I was able to quickly address direct with the opposition and also Jeff helped us to be heard within the NY State Supreme Court with his strong relationships. I share my compliments with much experience in dealing with attorneys via company related affairs across many firms where i have acted as a Senior Vice President. They have never gone as well or with as much focus and care as i received from Jeff and team. I would recommend Jeff for anyone who needs an honest, trustworthy and capable attorney.

Legal Expertise
I have worked with Jeff since 2009. He has handled my case with the utmost professionalism and care. The extra mile he has gone while representing me speaks volumes. Legal issues are tenuous, and oftentimes void of human distinction. Jeff Plaza does an exemplary job of balancing the rigors of a legal situation with a humanistic approach.

Highly Recommend Jeffrey Plaza
Jeffrey Plaza responded to my requirements re my legal situation in a very timely and professional manner. He kept me informed and his billing to the minimum while resolving my case. This was very appreciated as he was located in Pennsylvannia and my company was located in Florida. I highly recommend his services.

Civil and Criminal Legal Expertise
Jeff worked with my on a complex case that involved legal issues with both criminal and civil aspects. Jeff's firm grasp of the applicable laws and his ability to form a well thought out legal strategy across the various legal jurisdictions was critical to the successful resolutions of the cases. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone needing expertise in civil or criminal law.
