I hired this attorney in 2014 for an illegal eviction faced by my landlord at the time living in an illegal apt which unaware of moving from south to new jersey that i paid my landlord prepaid rent for 6 months to stay in. This lawyer fee was $1000. The law states if living in an illegal apt the landlord must give back 6 months worth of rent to relocate so I was willing to fight it in court with the truth for my money back not knowing at the time i was rented an illegal apt from a slumlord.
This lawyer didn't even go to my court date; sent a first time law student not familiar with my case to court the very next day for an emergency court date and was still forced to move out even with the fire Marshall in court as my witness to give the judge the inspection reports and their findings. This lawyer did not present none of my evidence. Mr. Feintuch wrote one motion on my behalf with many typos I caught and had to ask him to redraft to be professional with the court. $1000 to still get evicted the very next day is a waste of money and time; rude staff. My money could have gone somewhere else for this outcome less than 24 hours later. STAY AWAY better professional lawyers that care about their clients than just money!

I retained mr. Feintuch after interviewing several attorneys. He recognized the issues and advised me how he and his staff would prosecute my case. Following a trial I was awarded $400,00.00. I do not believe the negative comments made by others

I have engaged the services of Mr. Feintuch over the past 25 years. He has represented me regarding person legal affairs as well as numerous business matters. I have always been more than satisfied with his services. He has always been totally committed to the various and numerous problems that I have brought to his office. His staff is courteous and professional. I recommend him without any reservation.

Be specific-explain what your lawyer did...DID??..He did NOTHING. I paid $4000.00 and all he DID was make a few phone calls from the comfort of his office. He didn't even show up in court. He sent an under experienced minion instead. I told him what I wanted done and if I hired him could he do it? He said "Yes", I gave him the check, and he Laughed all the way to the bank! In fact, I have evidence and a witness, that strongly suggest there was a breach of confidence re: my case. I am submitting it to the Bar Association.
Philip Fientuch, Have a nice day!!

In my case, Mr. Feintuch did not recommend a competency trial when one was warranted. He also appeared to be supporting the other side's argument. At one point I had to clarify where he stood. During trial he came to me and said, "I don't know what else to say" when he was making his argument. Clearly he was not prepared. I would not recommend him.

He was rude and curt with me even though I was his client. He didn't negotiate hard with the opposing counsel and advised me wrongly on a default judgment. He advised me to settle even though i claimed it wasn't my debt. He then wrongly advised me to go to court and file to remove the wage garnishment and the court told me otherwise when I went down to the court. He didn't bother to follow up with the opposing lawyers and in the meanwhile my wages were being garnished. He didn't complete what I had paid him for in advance and I had to fire him. My next lawyer got the judgment thrown out of the court and closed the case without me having to pay a dime since it wasn't my debt. Philip Feintuch is a terrible lawyer and I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.
