To whom it may concern reviews aren’t my forte but one thing I’ve learned in life is u have to give credit where credit is due I was naive to the judicial system never even caught a jay walking ticket but yet the initial counsel I hired wasn’t acting in my best interest So w/out going into detail I had a criminal case in Municipal court going to court every month for a year I was deflated Until I fired my lawyer & hired Mr hudnut The energy was different he walked me through the process and more important he never swayed I did not want to plead guilty or copp out 2 a lesser charge And Mr Hudnut stood by my decision all the way And WE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON The cost of vindication is Priceless And I got my life back thanx Jake

Amazing lawyer!
My attorney fought for my freedom as if it was his own. He constantly stayed in contact with me, kept me informed about my case and what he was discussing with the prosecutor. I was facing 7 years in prison while being represented by previous council. When I hired Jacob he immediately told me that he would get that reduced. Our first court appearance he spoke with the prosecutor and pointed out every flaw in there case, said if they can’t work something out he’d be filing motions to have everything dismissed. My next court date I was offered probation with no jail time at all. Jacob is very professional and focused.

when no one else saw hope, he came and saved my life.
Mr. Hudnut picked up my case and took a look at it when no one else would. He saw what others lawyers couldn't see. They were trying to convict me to 12 years of state prison, and they were sure I was guilty. Mr. Hudnut came cleared every ones eyes. We went to trial and beat all the 1st degree charges. He saved my life, and proved that I was an innocent man. Over all great guy, amazing lawyer, and good friend.

A satisfied customer
As a very nervous client, what I appreciated about Jacob Hudnut, is the ease and simple and precise instructions he gave. Ease, in letting me know what he will not allow to happen and simple and precise instructions as what my role is. I followed his instructions, as I witness Jacob Hudnut, went to work until her got the best results he discussed prior. He is calm, approachable, easy to talk to and he listens well. For that, I am thankful that Jacob Hudnut represented me.

Case Dismissal
Mr.Hudnut is very professional and caring. He worked very timely and responsive to all my concerns and questions. During my case I would contact him via text, email or phone and never had to worry about a delay or no response, everything was handled with care. I provided as much information as I could to prove my innocence and Mr.Hudnut did a good job executing details and presentation on my behalf. Because of Mr.Hudnut I was able to be granted my dismissal motion (case dismissed) and can now move forward with my life.

Exceptional Experience With This Smart, Savvy, Soulful Attorney
I never in my life thought that I would need a criminal defense attorney. With an unfortunate chain of events, I was suddenly looking at some serious charges. I consulted Mr. Hudnut, and knew immediately that he was the attorney to represent me. He saw right through the 'red tape' of why I received the charges and built an incredible strategy and defense that ultimately had charges filed against the woman who initially attacked me, and all the charges against me were dropped. I found Mr. Hudnut to be very smart, confident, and helpful - explaining everything to me with great clarity and simplicity each step along the way. I highly recommend Mr. Hudnut. If you need a lawyer in Hudson County, you should look no further.

I highly recommend Jacob Hudnut as an attorney
After receiving a phone call from a family member who had been arrested on a warrant for probation violation, I placed a call to Jacob Hudnut and within five minutes he returned my call . Jacob immediately asked if the incarcerated person had a job and stated the URGENCY to get on the court docket and get this person back to work. Jacob kept his word and this young lady case was heard and she was released with no Probation and was able to return to her job. Jacob was available to the family 24 hrs a day and is still available for questions if we need him. I recommend Jacob Hudnut as a criminal attorney because he cares, and understands that often another chance is needed and he will fight to get his client another chance. Jacob Hudnut fought for my family and I highly recommend him if you and your family or a friend find yourself in need of an attorney .

Exceptional Attorney
I would absolutely recommend Mr. Hudnut. He represented my son in a legal criminal case. Mr. Hudnut was very professional and made sure that he researched all the necessary information in a very professional matter, before the case went to trial. Mr. Hudnut was always ready to answer all question and concerns before my son appeared in court. He is an example of a great attorney and a caring attorney. I would recommend him as a he is excellent and I would hire him for his services again. Thank you from an appreciative mother

Excellent Lawyer
Jacob is an extremely professional and articulate lawyer who's extremely knowledgeable in criminal law defense. He was always responsive when I sent him inquiries and met with me several times when preparing for court. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer after retaining some extremely incompetent ones over the past 2 years. I would recommend him to any who's looking for a quality, honest, and hardworking Lawyer.
