Deceptive practice by Collision repair facility
After being in a car accident, I was was strongly encouraged by my insurance company to bring my vehicle to a specific collision repair shop (DRP of course). My vehicle was not returned to me for 3 1/2 months. Once returned, the vehicle was not operating correctly. I brought my vehicle to the dealer to find out that the majority of work, including the frame rail repair was never done, leaving me in an unsafe, undriveable vehicle! The work that had been done was shoddy at best! I hired Jonathan Rudnick to take on the insurance company and the collision repair shop. Jon is very experienced, knowledgeable, and versed in deceptive practice and consumer fraud. He hired an outstanding Expert, walked me through the entire process, and eventually landed me a settlement that I was very pleased with. His zealous approach combined with extensive knowledge enabled justice to be served with my case. I am very thankful to have hired Jon for my case, and recommend him highly!

Takata Airbag and Deceptive Automobile Practices
Jonathan Rudnick has been a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nearly impossible. Not only was Jonathan able to protect and defend us from an unjust, unfair and life threatening Takata Airbag, but the automobile sales group that sold us the defective product, lied repeatedly about the availability of recall resolution and deceptive practices. Jonathan’s calm, direct and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. My children and I are eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Mr. Rudnick without reservation.

Lemon Law
Jonathan Rudnick is an excellent lawyer. John represented me and my 2014 Jeep Wrangler. My vehicle had multiple repairs for the same thing. Went to go see John about New Jersey's lemon law, which he explained I was entitled to compensation. John was on top of things and his staff is very professional. I highly recommend Jonathan Rudnick.

I hired Jon Rudnick in late summer. I am one of those guys who DOES HIS HOMEWORK.. Extremely upset after 20 years in the car BIZZ to find out after I was suspended then fired for decisions made by upper management. I just could not walk away like nothing was done to me..and several others that were blind to what was happening. I, myself,did not know the extent of this dishonesty until after my departure.After 2 HARD MONTHS of searching reviews and speaking to dozens of attorneys when I came acrossed Jon Rudnick I KNEW W/O a doubt I found the BEST ATTORNEY IN THE WORLD for my case. After putting together everything I could for my case (4 months of late late nights) and sending it to Mr Rudnick I knew I had a case and I'd be just a little bit nervous to be on the other side of the fence. Jonathon Rudnick has given me so much confidence that the very people who used me and spit me out will pay dearly for their dishonest business practices. Greed at its finest! Most of these employees being honest hardworking men and women who just wanted to feed their families. I've been working with Jon for some time now and BELIEVE ME.... THERE IS NOT a better attorney in this time era... There's just NOT!

Jon is genius, saved me $100k
Ok let me start by saying Jonathan is nothing but absolute genius, he is so smart I really feel bad for any other lawyer could go against him. Now long short story dealership called Deluxe Auto sale scammed me big time, I purchased 110k car from them and turned a total lemon and I return back to the dealership they want to fight and through threats left and right, they said we will not return the car if the hell freeze, I went to John OMG, in just three days Deluxe Auto sale cave in and agree to return the car and John charged me very low fee. John thank you very much you are the best

One of the better ones. He really knows his stuff.
I was defrauded by a Morris County car dealership, whom I later learned that this was a common practice for these individuals. I was told by other lawyers that I shouldn't waste my time as I signed the contract. I was fortunate to come across Mr .Rudnick, an extremely knowledgeable and capable attorney. He won my case which pleased me, but he was disappointed as he felt we should have gotten a bigger judgement. He was outstanding in the hearing.

Faulty Car Sale
Jon spent a very long time working on my case. I am Military and live out of state. The car dealership sold me a Toyota 4Runner with over $8,000 in hail damage on it and tried to ignore me in hopes that I would just go away. Although the case took sometime to settle, the dealership bought the car back for the original sale price and covered all my law expenses. Jon was always polite and gave honest assesments on what my options were, looking out for my best interest and not what was the most benificial to him. Thank you Jon.

Took advantage of by subprime loan agency
I financed a older car through a Credit Acceptance. I was duped into signing a contract that marked up the vehicle 2x it’s value. Multiple attempts to refinance or amend the loan contract proved fruitless and the vehicle was repossessed. Most of my possessions were stolen and the car was damaged. The tow truck company and the auction yard denied responsibility; going as far to accuse me of damaging my own car. Credit Acceptance forced me to pay for a damaged vehicle, which I denied to do, having to get my bank involved. They sold the car without notice or my consent. Credit Acceptance made my life hell for two years. After months of looking for options, I came across Mr. Rudnick. Through his excellent paralegal Debbie, I sent him a lengthy brief, pictures, notices, receipts, and anything else she thought would help my case. After more months of waiting, Mr. Rudnick reached out. He kept interrupting and asking me questions I didn’t understand. He didn’t seem interested in the case and his tone was very condescending. It felt like a cross-examination. Mr. Rudnick mentioned that he wouldn’t make a decision until he received a notice to sell from Credit Acceptance, which I never received prior to them selling the car off. I waited over a month to finally get the letter in the mail. Mr. Rudnick called me today to tell me he just wasn’t interested. He claims he reviewed my evidence and dealt with Credit Acceptance before. He has a very nasty attitude and do not recommend him as a lawyer or a person.

No communication
Very knowledgeable I did speak to Jonathan rudnick about a potential case. I understand he can be busy. I called over 10 times , left messages , I spoke to debbie shes amazing always helps out. Jonathan in the other hand has left me hanging to dry with no phone call or communication with a simple yes or no I can help you. Very unprofessional as I need help with my potential case. If he can not take the case at least say something . 2 months and over 10 phone calls and no answers.

Purchased A Lamborghini, Took over a Year to get title
Hired Jon to represent me on a case where I paid in cash ($140K) for a Lamborghini and never received the title from the dealer. Although Jon is knowledgeable and a nice guy during the case he was impatient. I felt like he had too many cases and did not have etiquette time to spend on my file. It took over a year for me to finally receive my title to my car even though I fully paid for the car in cash. Jon also threatened to quit several times during the case because he told me he hated the defence attorney but Jon never quit. After my deposition during the case there was a chance for Jon to get my title from the defendant but Jon was impatient and it didn't happen which was very disappointing because at that point I felt like the defence attorney was finally willing to give the title. I personally wouldn't hire Jon again cause I felt like he had way too many things going for him and didn't have enough time for me. Thanks.
