I wish I could give more stars
Ms. Jerijian is a highly intelligent and eloquent attorney. She is a great communicator and we never had to chase her. I contacted Ms. Jerijian seeking legal representation for a young family member. Unlike the other attorneys I interviewed, Ms. Jerijian listened patiently and carefully, and did not give us the bum’s rush or pressure us. Without going into detail, our family member had been dealing with recent difficult events that had bearing on the matters. Ms. Jerijian’s compassion and understanding, coupled with her knowledge of the law and the various NJ court systems, deeply impressed me – as did the rapport she developed with the young family member, which caused him to trust her and accept her guidance. She never treated him like just another case. In my opinion, this helped the prosecutor and the court consider all relevant factors. We were very pleased with the resolution.

Fantastic attorney
Rita did a good job representing me in a very difficult domestic violence case. The case took 5 days of trial and forced me to travel back and forth to New Jersey multiple times but she was very responsive to my needs. I would highly recommend her.

Terrible and very expensive divorce attorney
I had Ms. Jerejian for a divorce. She is terrible as a lawyer and extremely expensive - she charged me $18,000 for three months. No law knowledge, no work ethics, was screaming at me all the time. I agree with previous review - The worst advice, terrible client service, just overall bad.
