Intelligent, Professional, Practical and Always Ahead of the Game!
I retained Jason Roth for a divorce matter. It was a very difficult time for me because my family was struck by a tragedy at the same time and I had no energy to deal with anything else. Mr. Roth was very sympathetic, understanding and very flexible. I liked his candid and straight forward conversation style, he does not hesitate to paint a picture for a client in real colors of life and reality, at the same time he is quick to think outside of the box how to bridge those tough spots with applicable law and right strategy. Any of my calls or emails were always answered within minutes and I felt very secure that I had trustworthy and competent professionals on my side.

Thank you, Jason
As you will agree, preparing and filing for divorce is a difficult and stressful time. Finding a good and trustworthy lawyer is critical and equally daunting. After 28 years of marriage I was very much there. I selected two lawyers based on strong reviews. Left a message for both. Jason called back in less than 5 minutes. He took time to listen to my case and patiently addressed all my questions. We had a follow-up call. Again, he was calm, thorough and took time to set very clear expectations of what was to come. I decided to go with him. Over the coming months, Jason always made time for me, never once rushed me, always proactive and continued to respond within minutes, even to my non-urgent emails over the weekend and while on vacation. From a skill perspective he is exemplary, providing guidance and consistently striking that balance between being empathetic and offering fact-based guidance. He was always quick to tell me if my expectations were too high or let me know if I was giving too much. He was my counsel and shrink, sometimes just listening and at other times offering guidance and support. So many things can go wrong with this process, so many uncontrollable elements but with his diligent approach and stellar communication, Jason maintained credibility and control. Right to the end, there were no surprises, at least not in a bad way! From the time I signed to the video call for final judgement of divorce, I felt supported and knew exactly what to expect. Following his advice, I feel that the entire process was smooth and fair. Jason is kind, empathetic, effective and incredibly trustworthy. I’m not one to write reviews, but previous reviews from others helped me find the right representation and I felt compelled to write this up. I am hoping this will help others in the future. Thank you, Jason!

Professional and Through
I sought out the law firm of Murano and Roth for my divorce. Jason worked with my budget, was very direct with legal advice, and made sure that I was well protected during the process. The man is always working and it showed. He is professional and very through .

An attorney of the highest standard
When I was going through a difficult time in my life, Mr. Jason Roth was there for me throughout the whole process. Right off the bat, he came off as adept and sharp. I was not disappointed. Mr. Roth is an expert in his knowledge of the law and was the advocate I needed. He always had my bests interests in mind, and I also feel he is very ethical and performed to the highest standards. He is genuine and felt like not just an attorney but also a friend. I highly recommend Mr. Roth!

Best lawyer
Jason Roth is an awesome attorney. He personalized the experience. He made it seem like my divorce case was the only case on his desk. He was very patient. Jason did not give me false hope. He laid it out on the table, what was attainable, unattainable, possible, realistic or just not going to work. My divorce was smooth because of Jason and his pleasant staff. Even though I had my divorce in a time when my life was otherwise turned upside down, Jason supported me and made sure I stayed on track with his gentle push. I would definitely recommend this lawyer.

Most trustworthy attorney I have ever met
I was sceptical about seeking legal assistance for my divorce, because my previous attorneys dragged the process, overbilled, delegated work to unexperienced associates, in other words, took advantage of my situation and wasted my time and money. Jason Roth completely changed my opinion of divorce attorneys. He was my advocate every step of the way, giving valuable advice and providing high quality and timely services. He was thorough even under pressure, and did all the work himself without delegating to anyone. I would have never been able to reach a reasonable and fair agreement without his help. He made my divorce fast and painless. Jason was and is a picture of integrity, kindness and empathy, which is so important when one goes through an adversarial situation. Divorce is difficult and you want to hire an attorney you can trust and lean on. Jason was that person for me. I highly recommend him to anyone who goes through a divorce in New Jersey.

Client
I highly recommend Jason Roth, he is an expert in his profession beyond comparison. Thorough, well versed divorce attorney. He is very reasonable and discusses pros and cons, while seeking his clients best interest, he always maintained level headed, practical discussions and guided me over a long and exhausting 11 months. Mr. Roth and his firm have a client for life. I cannot express enough how absolutely AMAZING he is as an attorney and a person.

Simply Amazing!
Jason and the law firm Murano and Roth have been a tremendous help to me and my family for a number of years now. After hiring Jason eight months ago, he has filled many roles in guiding me through a tough separation and custody case. He advised that he would give 120% but truly there is no numerical value that can equate to the assistance, guidance and counseling that Jason has provided to me! I truly appreciate and highly recommend Jason, and the law firm Murano and Roth!

The Best There Is
Jason is the best there is. He has been there in every aspect for me for the past several years. Without him, I don't know what I would have done. He is the most kindest, honest, knowledgeable person I have ever met, and quite a little jokester too lol ! :). He's serious about what he does, but makes you laugh, which makes you feel less stressed about whatever it is you're dealing with. A perfectionist at what he does. He will ALWAYS be my attorney. Thanks J !

Responsive & Knowledgeable
Jason Roth has helped me several times in business related matters. He is responsive, knowledgeable and focused. I call him whenever I have an issue because I feel confident in his ability to help me. Most recently he negotiated with an opposing attorney and successfully resolved a dispute that had been on-going for years. I would definitely recommend Jason & his firm for your legal needs.

Jason Roth review
In going through a divorce, I looked for an attorney that could be objective and not know previously, me or my ex. Not sure how I came across Jason's name but I called and set up a consultation with him. Until you get to know Jason, you may find him abrupt as he tries to understand the facts of your case, but once you are committed to work together you will soon find he is honest, not judgmental, knowledgeable about the law as it relates to your case, and takes the time to do the necessary research. Finally I did not have to chase Jason, he was responsive to my calls and kept me informed as I have indicated above. At times he would disagree with how I wanted to settle my divorce (I wanted to feel good with myself about how the divorce would be settled), but in the end, although Jason always looked out for my personal interests, he in the end accepted my version of the settlement. Jason has also handled a drug offense that my son was involved in and in the end my son received probation and perhaps through Jason's handling of the case, my son is clean to this day. I felt in good hands with Jason handling the issue.

Fantastic Lawyer
Jason is a truly exceptional attorney. He helped me sort out a traffic violation, being attentive and focused to assure that I received the best deal possible. He answered all of my questions and was always available any time I needed him. I truly cannot recommend him enough. Working with him made a stressful situation far more manageable. Thank you, Jason!

Mr. Roth made my legal problems easier to deal with.
Mr. Roth kept me informed through all the steps I had to go through with the court. which seemed never ending. Family matters are never pleasant or easy, but he made the situation as easy for me as possible. I know other people who have been in my situation who did not have very good lawyers and were not happy with their results.
