Totally Professional
Could not have asked for a better team than Marshal Law & in particular Mr. Matt Dorrys individual approach in handling my case, & settling it in such a timely manner. I highly recommend him and his firm , as they are all vigilant and exceptional in their expertise as law professionals.

Ethical and Trustworthy
I was erroneously charged by the MV Commission of not having insurance on my automobile. This ensued as I switched Insurance companies. Although my new Insurance Company sent a confirmation of my insurance to the DMV, [it] did not recognize my legal hyphenated sur-name on the policy. Previously, when I renewed my driver's license I requested they use my legal name. They refused and used one capital letter as if it were my middle name. This created a snowballing of problems when I changed insurance companies. Although the Driver License ID, date of birth and address were the same on my new insurance, the clueless DMV issued a summons, froze my registration, threatened a large fine and cessation of my Driver's license. I was extremely fortunate that the Law Firm I choose to help me with this frightening dilemma assigned my case to Matthew Dorry, Esq. He listened, he advised and then he set out to rectify this erroneous situation. The most upsetting part of this was, I was pulled over by the police in the midst of this nightmare on my way to a doctor. I was told I had to park my car in the closest parking lot and leave it there, as I was not in the system and driving illegally. The officer even made me contact my insurance company so he could verify I had insurance. They did; but, it didn't change anything until Matthew Dorry got involved. I am so grateful for his calm approach to allay my fears, his immediate action to get this resolved and his representation of me in court. He made a horrific experience less intimidating as I realized he was there at all times on my behalf. If Matthew Dorry represents you- you are definitely in excellent hands. He's the best.

Exceptional Attorney!
Matthew Dorry represented me when I was being faced with a disorderly person’s misdemeanor. Matthew kept me informed through consistent communication and made me feel secure throughout the process. He went above and beyond to address my case. Matthew is patient, kind, caring, knowledgeable and professional with a great benchside manner! He is exceptional at what he does as a criminal defense attorney! I was pleased and relieved with the end result, in which the charge was downgraded to an ordinance with a fine. I confidently recommend Matthew to others.

Matt Dorry is an Excellent Attorney!
Matt Dorry represented my 19 y/o son in a possession and traffic violation. Mr. Dorry and the rest of his team far exceeding my expectations giving my son a second chance as he begins adulthood. I'm grateful that God led us to Matt.

Top notch attorney with amazing benchside manner!
I can not thank Mr. Dorry and the law offices of Jonathan F. Marshall enough for their work on my case. From the initial consult, first appearance, digital communication in between and representation in court; Mr. Dorry and his colleagues were professional, effective and compassionate. I was charged with possession of marijuana and paraphernalia in East Windsor, NJ. I was at risk of losing my job and having a criminal record. Mr. Dorry stepped in, worked his magic and I ended up pleading guilty to a noise ordinance. No criminal charges and no need for conditional discharge. I would highly recommend Mr. Dorry and the Law Offices of Jonathan Marshall for all your legal needs!

Professional, knowledgeable, well connected
Matt was prepared and had done extensive work behind the scenes to represent us effectively. We were impressed with his experience, thoughtfulness, and professionalism. He provided us with grade A service. All at JfmLaw, including JFM and staff, were so helpful and supportive throughout this difficult ordeal for my family. They were confident of the outcome, and successful. We paid more for representation, but it was well worth it.

Case was dismissed
Mr. Dorry handled a case for me recently. I was scared to death, never having been in legal trouble before. While the charge was considered a petty misdemeanor, I still knew I could be facing fines and/or probation. Not something I wanted at my age. (or ever) After our phone consultation, I felt better, but was still very nervous having to go to court. My case started with mediation, and neither me or Mr. Dorry felt confident it would end there, considering the plaintiff was an angry person looking to specifically bring trouble to my family. As it turned out, Mr. Dorry was allowed to sit through the mediation with me. I'm so glad he was able to--as it turned out the mediation process resulted in a mutual agreement between me and the plaintiff. When a written agreement was being drafted, Mr. Dorry had the foresight and skill to suggest the agreement include specific things that were in my family's best interest. After successful mediation, the case against me was dismissed. I highly recommend Mr. Dorry, and appreciate his competence, knowledge and willingness to vigorously defend my and my family's legal rights.

Successful Dismissal
Matthew Dory, Esq. represented me in a case in the Jersey City, NJ Municipal Court. After 14 long months he was successful in dismissing two misdemeanor charges against me. His interaction with me and his conduct in the court room was always of the highest degree of professionalism. He is punctual, precise and a shrewd advocate. With an in depth knowledge of New Jersey law he was effective and persuasive in the court room while arbitrating my case. Mr. Dory’s sharp intellect allowed him to skillfully manage the intricate twists and turns of my matter. He was masterful in highlighting weaknesses in the State’s case and ultimately successful in preventing proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Never backing down, his indefatigable nature was essential in fighting hard to have these charges dismissed. I am sincerely grateful for his expertise in helping me move past this trying time in my life. If you are in need of legal defense I would highly recommend calling Mr. Dory immediately and retaining him as your counsel.

I wouldn't use anyone else
I hired Mr.Thomas and Matthew Dorry to take on 2 traffic violations. 1 was a minor accident and the 2nd was to reopen an old case from over a year ago to correct a charge that I shouldn't have been given. I couldn't be happier with the result. Thomas Martin and Matthew Dorry managed to relieve me of all of the stress from the situation and got me down from a possible 6-8 points to 0 points. An absolutely amazing feat. They truly care about the well being of their clients and it shows with their efforts in the court room. I wouldnt recommend anyone else but these gentlemen. Thank you so much!

Simple assault - dismissed
Mr. Dorry's representation was thorough and well thought out. He left no stone unturned during discovery and brought about a quick resolution of the assault charge which was dismissed and expunged. I strongly recommend Mr. Dorry - two thumbs up.

One Happy Client
I am a successful businessman and I had a skeleton of my past come back. I was caught in the NJ DMV Facial Scrub, needless to say I was summoned Misstatement of Fact. I went on my own to try to handle this, big mistake. After getting grilled, then being told I will receive a letter. Which I thought it did not go too bad,until I got their letter. Two year suspension for the misstatement and they threw another six month for driving while suspended. 2 1/2 years I felt sick and desperate. I went on line and saw John Marshall law Firm who specializes with these issues. I called and they assign Matt Dorry to me. I can not say enough good things about this man, from being just a regular guy that I could explain why and how I got into this mess, which he understood. Then knowing the law which helped me, plus his personal / business relationships with the DMV staff from being there and handling this kind of cases. He also always got back to me right away if I had a question or I received another document in the mail. Since, I already went to the hearing and received my punishment in the mail and missed the hearing request. I thought there was not much that could be done. Once, Matt got involve and started writing letters to The DMV. I was granted a new Hearing and this was the out come with Matt's Excellent skills it went form 2 1/2 years to 7 Months then on top off it all he suggested to the DMV while I am waiting for the end of my suspension that I could take the defense driving program to take 2 points off my license. The DMV person even printed one for me that is only $ 20.00 and could do on line. This is one of the happiest days of my life. It when from having huge difficulties for the next 2 1/2 to walking into the DMV in about four months getting my license back and having this huge problem behind me and finished. Matt Dorry "THANK YOU VERY MUCH"
