Thanks Mr. Bhatt
I want to extend my appreciation for Jay for personally helping with my case. I had a complicated case and he helped me through the process by first providing information without charging anything. It is rare to find attorneys that care about clients and their work and he is an exception. If you need an attorney for anything, I would recommend you contact him.

Great Attorney
I want to thank Jay for helping with a personal injury case. I was injured in a car accident and contacted the Bhatt Law Group. I'm extremely happy with the amount of money they got me. The best part was their communication. They kept me in the loop throughout the case. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Person Injury Case
I hired the Bhatt Law Group for a personal injury case. I'm very happy with the amount of money they got me. I met with the owner Jay Bhatt and Daniel. They far exceeded my expectations and I was able to put money aside for the future. I'm so happy! Hire them immediately if you have a PI case!

Don’t go to court alone
I reached out to Jay due to an unfortunate speeding ticket, He answered immediately just as he did throughout the entire process. Whether it was by email or phone, Jay was always quick to answer any questions or concerns I had. He is very well educated in the field and did an excellent job explaining to me the details of my case. He was a very personable and professional. I'm very thankful to have him represent me, he made the process very simple and delivered great results. Jay saved my driving record and saved me lots of money.

Top Notch Lawyer
I used jay's office for a personal injury case and I am more than happy with the outcome. The paralegal was very good at what he does and Jay was aggressive in fighting for a resolution. Got more that I had thought.

Traffic Ticket
I hired the Bhatt law group for a traffic ticket. They were very thorough and advised me what the attorney would do for me. Went to court with an attorney from Bhatt Law Group and the outcome was great. I have used Bhatt Law Group in the past and have recommended them to family and friends. I will continue to use Bhatt Law Group in the future. There's a reason this law firm is so highly recommend. They KNOW what they are doing.

EXCELLENT LAWYER
I WAS ARRESTED IN TOMS RIVER NJ FOR MARIHUANA POSSESSION. BHATT LAW FIRM HELD MY HAND THROUGH ENTIRE PROCESS WHICH CAUSED ALOT OF STRESS ESPECIALLY SINCE I LIVED 150 MILES AWAY. THEY WERE EVEN ABLE TO RESCHEDULE COURT DATE BECAUSE I HAD FINALS. I WAS DEFINITELY IN TROUBLR AND JAY BHATT AND HIS COLLEAGUES HELPED ME OUT AND ARGUED THE VALIDITY OF THE STOP THEY GOT ENTIRE CASE DISMISSED. EVER GRATEFUL !!!

My go to lawyer
I am a truck driver and I have been using Jay's law office for about 5 years because I get tickets all over the place. Him and his firm are great. They have always been aggressive at fighting for me and I appreciate that because I put food on the table with my license. If you drive for a living or simply have a ticket, give them a call.

Very Good Lawyer
I used Jay's office for a traffic case and my experience was nothing short of amazing. I have used other attorneys in the past and the level of attention that his office provides is hard to find anywhere else. If me or any of my family has any legal issues in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to use his law firm. He gets my recommendation.

Genuine and Very Knowledgeable
I hired his law firm for a traffic ticket and I'm very happy with the way they handled my case. He is a genuine attorney that cares about clients and getting great results. I would recommend both him and his law firm to anyone that has a legal issue.

great service
i drove these guys insane with my first time traffic ticket and they reassurred me every step of the way that i would be fine. Althoughi later found out that i did not need a lawyer for traffic ticket I feel that anyone who was clueless and scared as i am about going to court should call these guys. They are a little behind getting back to you but I think that is because they are so busy. I even went so far as to try and fire them and they still kept me on. Seriously call them if you have an issue. Their fees are reasonable and they will walk you through every step. Afterwards I made sure to apologize to everyone for making them so nuts. Now that is customer service

Sent someone who didnt know alot
Hired Bhatt firm in JC because he was very cheap and across from the courthouse. In fact he was $50 cheaper than Mr. Disapio who is also near the courthouse. They promised me very good results but in the end I still got surcharges on license and still got points also. They told me that I would have an experienced lawyer but instead they sent some guy who didnt seem to know alot and didnt give much of an effort. I asked the person where Mr. Bhatt was and they said "Oh he doesnt go to court appearance". He is great at soliciting my business but not so good at following up.

Response from Jay Bhatt March 15, 2018
I'm sorry to hear about your experience. We do not promise any results because ultimately the judge is the one that decides on the outcome. All of the attorneys from our law firm are highly experienced in handling traffic and criminal cases and have been doing so for years. Please contact me directly by emailing [email protected] or through AVVO and let's personally discuss your case.
