Great and a beast of a lawyer
I had 3 other lawyers trying to drop some charges and avoid jail time. Which none of them could accomplish it seemed like they were all scared of the prosecutor. I hired Frank and saw immediate results although I served the jail time he got the orders I needed dropped. In an expediated manner The best thing I loved about Frank is that he listened instead of worrying about my money. He’s a beast in the court room and definitely well respected by all the judges. He’s very confident in his work and it speaks for its self. I highly recommend him for anyone going through anything. He’s caring respectful and does everything he tells his clients he’s going to do with no hestitation. His gloves are always on and ready to step in to any court room He really saved my life and My family and I are really great full for this man. Thank you Frank from the bottom my heart I appreciate you

Frank Carbonetti is honestly the best lawyer i have ever witnessed to have at your side
Frank Carbonetti is a god sent savior ,Im serious don’t go to court without him. He performs miracles . I was hit with a very serious 3rd degree felony also a dui , reckless driving , and a bunch of other motor vehicle tickets from an atv accident . I thought my life was over . Frank thru his excellence in law and being able to accurately apply his skills achieved far more than I could possibly imagine for me . No prison time just a 12 month program that gets the felony dismissed , only 1 ticket out of 6 . Frank worked up to the last minute with me as a client . I will forever be grateful to this wonderful gentleman , he saved me in the most difficult time I’ve ever had in my life .

Top notch criminal defense attorney
I couldn’t advocate more for the best man to have in your corner than for that person to be Frank. Attention to detail, experienced, an astute legal practitioner well. An innocent oversight that could have proven adversarial with the court proceedings, Frank stood on the facts, applied the law, dissected the discovery and compelled a favorable outcome for me getting complete and total exoneration. Can I add reasonable fees too by not taking advantage of the situation in a desperate quest to prove my innocence. Awesome guy, professional bar none!!!!

EXCELLENT LEGAL REPRESENTATION!
Frank Carbonetti deserves the highest praise and gratitude for his hard work and unwavering dedication. In my past three-year legal journey, Franks commitment was nothing short of outstanding. The tireless efforts and relentless pursuit of excellence turned what seemed insurmountable challenges into successful outcomes. I am genuinely grateful for the outstanding representation and the personal dedication that made all the difference. Frank Carbonetti and Lucianna & Lucianna aren’t just a legal team; they are champions of justice, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Highly recommend their services! Thank you again Frank your the man!

JUSTIFICATION
I hired Frank as my attorney in my case. He was always on point. Explained to me what I was faced with and then proceeded to help me see our plan and defense in order to get the results he achieved. A complete dismissal of the case and my record completely expunged. Great job Frank and thank you.

Bergen county’s best criminal attorney.
I know Frank many years he’s my go to literally for everything. A few years ago I had gotten two dui’s and I already had one I was convicted of many years before so I was looking at imprisonment. Frank is the attorney that goes through everything if there’s something wrong he’s going to find it. He got my dui dropped over some stuff in the case not right. The difficulty of getting what I did having a prior is almost impossible. He’s worth the money and is very reasonable considering how good he is. He also just recently got a case thrown out earlier this month for me where if found guilty would’ve crippled me seriously. Was looking at fines up to 250k he also got me out of that without a scratch (trial case) Frank is a trail attorney and not just good the best. In Bergen county in my opinion. He just did a murder trial also right before my last issue and also came out winning there to. If you need a lawyer that works and knows his stuff he’s your lawyer hands down.

Frank Carbonetti is an exceptional attorney. I highly recommend him!
This was my first time using Frank and the best experience Ive ever had using an attorney. I had 2 attorneys prior to him for this same case that wasted my time (one got me a bench warrant for not filing proper paperwork). Then I was referred to Frank by a friend who said he and his firm were the absolute best. So i went to meet him. He was very professional, honest and confident, always punctual in the office and court, very friendly, he listened and allowed me plenty of time and I never felt rushed. When i reached out, I received a response, when I had a question, he had an answer. I can’t thank him enough for helping me get these charges dismissed and then expunged. He kept me hopeful by informing me of what was going on every step of the way. This case was ongoing for almost a year. Until i found Frank and he took care of it in 2 months. Just an amazing attorney all around and I highly recommend you call him if you need an one. 5 STAR EXCEPTIONAL ATTORNEY!!

Top-Notch Legal Representation
I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Carbonetti on a recent legal matter, and I cannot express enough how impressed I was with their professionalism, expertise, and dedication. From our first meeting, Frank and Paul took the time to listen to my concerns and fully understand the details of my case. They were incredibly thorough in their research and analysis, and always kept me updated on the progress of my case. Frank took the time to walk me through every step of the process, ensuring that I was fully informed. Throughout the entire process, Frank was always available to answer my questions and address any concerns I had. Frank and Co. were consistently responsive and supportive, providing me with the peace of mind I needed during a stressful time. In the end, Frank was able to achieve a successful outcome for my case, and I cannot thank them enough for their hard work and dedication. If you are in need of legal representation, I would highly recommend Frank from Lucianna & Lucianna to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, compassionate, and effective lawyer.

THE PREMIERE LITAGATOR IN BERGEN COUNTY! DO NOT GO TO COURT W/OUT THIS MAN AS YOUR ATTORNEY! THIS MAN IS THE TIP OF THE SWORD!
If you live long enough you will most likely, sooner or later, find yourself in an unimaginable legal situation(felony charge) with very serious, life-altering consequences that will impact your entire life. Everything you have worked for yourself and your family crushed instantly! This is an insanely overwhelming and terrifying feeling, to say the least! At this point, it is very easy to concede that your "life" is for all intent and purpose, OVER! Well, after one phone call and an in person meeting with Mr. Carbonetti, he calmly, masterfully explained the legality of the situation I was in step by step and in a way that was completely clear and understandable to me. From this point forward, Mr. Carbonetti was all over my case like a rabid dog with an unmatched ferocity. He will leave no stone unturned. The characteristic I loved and appreciated the most was his HONESTY along with keeping me in the loop EVERY step of the way! So, at this moment, you may be asking yourself, well, if this man is such an elite attorney, then what was the outcome of my case? My charge was dismissed and expunged!! Mr. Carbonetti's knowledge and understanding and application of the law is at an ELITE level!!! p.s. Mr. Carbonetti will be the sharpest dresser in the courtroom, by far! Thank You again for all your effort, time, and personal attention Mr. Carbonetti!!
