#1
Mr. Lederman, without a doubt, is the best of the best. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law to every minute detail. In terms of my case, the evidence was stacked against me and it seemed like I had no chance. However, though I don’t know too much about trial court, what I did know was that I was witnessing some fine lawyering, especially when he had the officers speechless during cross examinations. He was able to get my Tier II DWI dropped to a reckless driving with a 2 month interlock, which was a better result than I expected and even asked for. If anyone is unfortunate enough to be found in a similar situation, you can rest assured Mr. Lederman will provide you with the absolute best representation New Jersey has to offer. I have to give all thanks to this miracle of a trial to God and Mr. Lederman.

Great Attorney
Peter has YEARS of experience and it showed during my trial. He was very friendly and did a good job of talking me through what were the strong points and weak points of my case. In the end, he educated the state trooper on the proper points of roadside sobriety testing and got my DWI charged dropped as well as a very good deal. Thanks Peter!

Peter Lederman is a true professional and exceptional attorney.
Peter Lederman represented me on a DUI case which seemed stacked against me. He thoroughly reviewed every aspect of my case from before, during, and after my arrest. He was able to find flaws in the testing SOPs and arrest protocols which resulted in a favorable outcome with a greatly reduced charge. His methodology and trial expertise were impressive. His staff of Jessica Walton and Noreen Smith were top notch, exhibiting excellent communication with me, greatly reducing the stress of my ordeal. As I think back on what might have been, I can't thank enough Peter and his staff for the work they put in and the result they obtained on my behalf.

Excellent Attorney
Peter was an amazing attorney. He represented me with a DWI I was charged with and was able to assist the entire time and advise me correctly. He suggested I go to counseling which I did and Lisa Mollicone was an amazing counselor as well who helped me get focused. He was able to investigate the case thoroughly and advised accordingly. I would recommend Peter 100 times over and whatever he charges for his services are totally worth it.

Best Lawyer
Peter Lederman is the best in the game. From the start, him and his team were professional and always available when you had a question. He truly cares for his clients and will do everything in his ability to get you the best outcome. I hired him for a second offense and I couldn't be more grateful for my outcome. I had my case knocked down to reckless driving with no suspension which in my scenario was the BEST possible outcome. Don't think twice. Make sure you hire him because he will do everything to help you get the best possible outcome. Thank you Peter!

Best in NJ, DWI lawyer
My experience with Peter has been excellent, to say the least. Peter and his staff are highly knowledgeable, responsive, and thorough. Peter, unlike other lawyers, takes a personal interest in every case and analyzes technical, procedural issues methodically. Peter is very compassionate and helps clients in their best interest. I highly recommend Peter, if anyone has been charged with DWI in NJ.

Best of the best
Peter Ledderman represented me on a DUI case that could have very well ended up in a jail sentence. Under any regular representation I would have had to do some time. Mr. Ledderman was not regular representation, I think of him as the best of the best. The amount of time and effort he put into my case was beyond what I could have imagined. We got a successful result because he knows his stuff! His paralegal Jessica Walton was top level as well between her prompt communication and quality of service, I couldn’t have asked for a better team. I highly recommend them if your looking to be represented by the best.

master of his craft
Had a dui case mixed with many other things and Peter really knew what he was dealing with. He made the whole process so much less painful. He explained everything that was going on in the case and was understanding of everything. On top of that I couldn't have asked for anything more when it came to the outcome of the court case, I truly won the lottery picking Peter as my lawyer.

He beat my dui case, and is a great man!!!! The best
Peter lederman and his staff are the best. Mr lederman helped me beat a dui charge after an arrest and horrible crash. He was patient with me and my family. He spoke with me on multiple occasions decreasing my anxiety over my dui case. Everyone around me told me not even a lawyer can help me beat my case. Mr lederman is very kind and doesn’t just care about beating someone’s case, he also cares about the person understanding what they did wrong and sets up his client for not only a positive outcome with the dui case, but a positive outcome with the person understanding how not to repeat this behavior. His staff, Jessica and Noreen treated me and my family amazing. Both women were very patient and kind and made sure I understood what me lederman was doing. Not only did I beat my case and have dui charges dropped , but I learned from this horrible mistake only because of mr ledermans words. He is a great man. Thank you mr lederman for helping me change my life around and for getting my dui charges dropped.

Outstanding Service!!!
Mr Peter Ledermen has represented me in my second DUI case. The first was 10 years ago. To say the least I was ashamed of my second offense. This time the charge was even more serious with a Bac. Of .17 and 7 other tickets. Not only did he show the willingness he had 10 years ago when I first hired him but still had the professionalism and expertise in handling my second offense as the first. The outcome of the case was outstanding . He had the DWI offense dismissed. I was only charged for reckless driving and one other ticket. A failure to produce documents. I highly recommend anyone without any doubt to have the Ledermen and staff represent you in DUI or Dwi offenses. You will be treated with respect and compassion. You will be so relieved with the results that the court in your area will give you. Just give the Peter and staff to represent you and you will not be disappointed. I am utterly satisfied with the outcome and will continue my road to a better life and sobriety. I owe it to the the team!

TOP DOG
Attorney Peter Lederman, or as he prefers to be called "Peter" Has proven his exceptional knowledge; both professionally and personally. I must start this this review by mentioning his terrific staff. Jessica and Noreen were both skilled and patience with my anxiety and numerous concerns over my DUI, which were rescheduled several times. Peter was immediately available when contacted, which I considered, comforting and indicative of his sincere concern for HIS client. Peter was able to have the DUI dropped to reckless driving, open container in vehicle and 3 month suspended license. Refusal to breathalyzer and several other charges were were removed and saved me from numerous addition fines. In all earnesty and respect, I can not thank 'Peter' enough for his doggedness on my behalf due to his high degree of skill and flair. Highly recommend this " TOP DOG".,, Thanks again...Lisa B

Successful representation
During my initial phone call to Mr. Lederman, he came across as compassionate and explained the process and implications very clearly and I decided to hire him to represent me immediately - a decision that was key to a successful outcome for me. His deep understanding and tremendous knowledge of law enforcement procedures was clearly demonstrated when I joined him to review the Discovery documents that were submitted. He was methodical, took copious notes and pointed out things that he could use in my defense. His staff was able to work off his findings to prepare a comprehensive set of additional requirements for the Prosecutor to address. During my initial hearing, the Prosecutor asked the court for more time. Then Covid hit and my next hearing was after a full year had passed since the event. Again, Mr. Lederman prepared me for the hearing, gave me suggestions and realistic options. He also followed up separately with the Prosecutor. In the end, I was tremendously relieved that I received a highly desirable outcome than what could have been a far worse nightmare. I am very Thankful to Mr. Lederman for representing me and would highly recommend him and his offices to anyone.

The best out of the best
We all make mistakes, and I made one back in December 2019. After the holiday party with my friends, I drove home, not realizing I had to drink more than I should. My BAC was 0.16..not great at all, to say the least. I hired a different lawyer, much cheaper, which was a HUGE mistake. You pay for what you get. Soon after, I fired the lawyer and went to Mr. Peter; he was extremely understanding and clearly explained the consequences and pointed on my case's weaknesses. Due to the covid, my case was rescheduled many times and today was a day of a trial. Mr. Peter was able to DISMISS my DUI case, and we didn't even have to do a trial at all!!!! I couldn't believe that! I walked away with reckless, 90 days suspension and a small fine with no DUI record on my case! I am so happy and so grateful I went to him. One thing I should ve done differently, I should've gone to him in the first place! Contact Mr. Peter; everyone deserves a second chance!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Peter is one of the most knowledgeable attorneys I have had the privilege of working with. He is incredibly well-versed in DUI/DWI law, with the seemingly effortless ability to cite cases and make cohesive arguments that win the day. I had the immense good-fortune of working with him on a DUI as co-counsel, and I gained a lot of insight into how to approach those cases due to his careful consideration and analysis of the facts. He was respectful and encouraging of my work product, while also giving me constructive feedback. He even put on a masterclass in how to handle client interactions. With his vast experience and his breadth of knowledge, Peter is definitely the advocate that you want on your side."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Peter is an outstanding and well known attorney in the community with substantial experience handling DWI matters. I had the pleasure of attending one of his CLE seminars, gaining valuable knowledge in his field of DWI defense. He went above and beyond by staying after the lecture to answer questions and offered himself as a resource for any future issues. He has on countless occasions provided me with valuable information and insight into the art of defending a DWI case."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Feb 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Peter is both a talented lawyer and a consummate gentleman. I have both taken ICLE seminars he has been a part of as well as observed him in court. I was in court on an occasion that Peter was in the middle of trying a DWI case. Now normally municipal court trials are not the most interesting cases to watch but I do take the opportunity to observe them when I am already in court to see if I can pick up some tips. Well I got more than that on the day I saw him. I got to see him skillfully poke holes in the prosecutors case while still remaining respectful to all involved. His client went from a DWI with other related charges to a ticket with low fines and no points. I can't remember the violation because it is so difficult to get for your client even in a speeding case where unsafe operation is a good result. He gave me his card and told me to call if I ever had any questions. The bottom line is not only did he call me back he gave me his cell #. He is a Lawyer's Lawyer"
