5.0 stars 80 totalReview Peter Lederman
Posted by Vishal
When I first received my DWI, I was terrified, I thought I would lose my license, job, and overall, my humility. The weekend after I was arrested, I met with Peter that Monday afternoon, after doing as much research as I could over the weekend, looking for the best DWI lawyers in NJ. Peter's name came up, and his reviews, while at first glance might not seem like they are real, are in fact real. I can personally attest to this fact. Peter Lederman is the best DWI lawyer in NJ. During the first meeting, I was given the assurance that he would work to get the best possible outcome in my case, and ultimately, I did. Throughout the process, Peter was always reachable, and his office is excellent to work with. Also, Peter is very stern in terms of what he demands from his clients, and I now realize the importance of the things he asks you to do. Additionally, I was a little disappointed towards the end of the whole process in regards to what the outcome would turn out to be, but I now realize that this was the best possible outcome in my case, and I cannot be any more grateful than I am now for having retained Peter as my attorney. I was able to go from a 2nd tier DWI, with stiff penalties, high BAC, and irrefutable evidence against me, to a tier one DWI with a 3-month suspension, with no BAC on record. This entire experience was life changing, and Peter not only made it bearable, but also guided me towards a path where I can remain standing at the end of the day, and continue living my life. Do not make the mistake of drinking and driving; call a friend, Uber, taxi, or whatever else, but please do not drink and drive. And, if you make do make the mistake, like I did, then make sure your first phone call is to a loved one telling them how sorry you are, and admitting your mistake, and the second one to the best DWI attorney in NJ, Peter Lederman.

I was pulled over by NJ State Police with a BAC of .17, which is nearly double the legal limit. With this I fell into the Teri 2 category where it was a mandatory 2 years loss of license, interlock device in my vehicle, 48 hours of IDRC, and up to $1,000 in fines.
Hired Mr. Leaderman asap and about 9 months later I was convicted of a reckless driving ticket and received only 2 months of suspension. And that's it! Would not recommend anyone else other than Peter Leaderman for a Dui/Dwi offense.
Thank you again Mr. Leaderman.

I would like to be 100% transparent. Mr. Lederman is a special person to me. My father and I hired Mr. Lederman after a freak accident in June of 2012. Wasn't my first go around with drinking and driving. Just so happened to be one of the best decisions, I've ever made. Mr. Lederman advised me both personally and professionally, on what to do and how to do it. It was one of the toughest time peroids of my life. I remember going to work (selling radio advertising), having to hit monthly goals while management inquired about my constant court status and knowing that at some point the walls would come crashing down. It was a lot to handle. Mr. Lederman (Jess, Eva) made themselves available to me whenever I needed. Throughout the hearings, Mr. Lederman would make comments and say, "I know what you're going through is difficult. I can't talk from personal experience, but keep working hard" or "You need to apply yourself like you are and keep making responsible decisions everyday... Not just because your going to court." Mr. Lederman isn't just an attorney. Mr. Lederman is a family man, who has sheer interest in wanting his clients (me) to make responsible decisions. He holds you accountable throughout the entirety of the process. Not a day goes by I don't think about how he would push me through the hardest battle of my life. After five years (5/11/2017), I called Mr. Lederman and thanked him for making me a better person. In a time of my life where I was fear ridden (before my DWI and self medicating) to make career moves and move to NYC, Mr. Lederman found a way to dig deep and make me whole. I will never forget Mr. Lederman's last words after walking out of court. Mr. Lederman put one hand on my shoulder and said, "Son, I hope you have learned how tough you are through this experience. It's not easy and nor should it be. You made an irresponsible decision and will be accountable for it. That aside, I want you to know that the only thing you lost was time. It's up to you from this point on, to determine where you go from here. You can do anything in this world if you just believe in yourself!" To this day, I'm in the process of starting a 501(c) and own a NYC start-up production business. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for teaching me how to grow both personally and professionally. You were more than just an attorney. You were a miracle man, instrumental figure, attorney, mentor and friend. For that I'm grateful!

Hands down one of the nicest lawyers to work with. Peter H. Lederman helped me overcome my first offense dwi that took nearly a year and a half to get a result. Extremely knowledgeable and worth everu penny. He stood by me the entire time and was not going to give up until we reached MY goal. Got my dwi reduced to a reckless driving. Thank you so much! I couldn't be more greatful.

Peter as a person is very caring and honest which to me is a great trait to have in a lawyer. He without a doubt treats you as person not just another number as most attorneys do. Peter is the best dui/dwi attorney there is. In the beginning stages he is very informative as to your individual situation as all cases are different. After explaining to Peter what had happened he then in return gives you all the scenarios that you could be facing when it comes to the charges. Once receiving all the discovery for the case he will then be able to tell you the best case scenario and worst case scenario so that there is no surprises the day of court. Going into my case I truly felt that I had backed myself into a corner and would be facing the worst case scenario for my particular situation. But much to my shock Peter had come through above and beyond what I could have even expected. To say that Peter won the case for me would be an understatement. He not only shocked and surprised me with the outcome he has given me a completely new twist on life once again. Along with the win and some extra encouraging words of wisdom after all was said and done he helped open a new light in life for one which will not be taken for granted again. So when looking for an attorney the only way to go would be to pick Peter Lederman because if you choose somebody else you will be just slighting yourself. Thanks again Peter for everything

Peter was very professional and proficient.
My particular case couldn't have been settled in a more perfect way. I would refer his expertise to any who require his line of work. Thank you so much Peter.

I retained Peter as my lawyer for a difficult DUI case and he did an excellent job representing me.
Its often difficult to judge how good expert service is when we have little or no experience in the field we are reviewing and this is especially true in the case of Lawyers. How good is the contract they write or how well will they represent me in court? Peter will do an excellent job and his laser focus on DUI / DWI law makes him the right choice if you are facing these charges.
During your consultation Peter will go over all of your options and the consequences of those options in an easy to understand manner. For my situation proceeding to trial was the only option that made sense.
I was most impressed with Peter when we got to trial. He was clearly an expert in his field as was evidenced by his deep knowledge of DUI / DWI law and the lines of questioning that he took. In our case he was able to poke holes in a number of the State's case against me because of errors by the officer who charged me and this would not have been possible if Peter was unprepared or inexperienced. He took my very difficult case and was able to win it with his approach. I don't know how many lawyers in NJ would have been able to achieve the win but I suspect that very few could.
You can't go wrong picking Peter Lederman to represent you.

¬¬Mr Lederman has been great since the beginning. I got a DWI in New Brunswick, NJ. Mr. Lederman told me what my best and worst case scenario form day one. He treated me as if we were related, and his genuine care for the matter is indescribable. During the “discover” phase he gave me new options, based on what he saw and his experience in the matter. At court, he was able to do even better than his prediction. I blew a .16 in the Breathalyzer (double the legal limit), which should have been 7 months – a year license suspension, interlock device for one year, surcharges of $1000 per year for 3 years, and potential loss of insurance, and I ended up with a reckless driving and 45 day license suspension. My suggestion is if you want someone to tell you as is and fight for you, go with mr lederman, and you wont regret the decision.

If you've gotten a DUI in the state of NJ like I did, take it from me -- you MUST talk to Peter. Peter Lederman prides himself on knowing more than anyone else -- cops, prosecutors, other attorneys -- about the laws and technicalities surrounding DUI in NJ -- because he studies and teaches them. It amazed me how many aspects of my arrest the cop did incorrectly, from pulling me over, to my roadsides, to the breathalyzer. Unreal. And all of these things add up to a very weak case for the prosecutor. Peter was able to reduce my DUI to a reckless driving ticket. A TICKET!!! And ultimately saved me $5k+ in fines and fees, etc. (BTW, my blew a .14). I did lose my license for a period of time, but I do not have a DUI on my record that will follow me for the rest of my life. This is HUGE. And from what I know, its extremely rare for a prosecutor to agree to this. You can roll the dice with another lawyer, or you can guarantee yourself the strongest case and best outcome with Peter. Your call.

I thought that my DUI conviction was a done deal once I got pulled over and arrested. I couldn’t have been more wrong about the outcome. Peter H Lederman, Counsellor At Law with Davison, Eastman, Munoz, Lederman & Paone P.A., is listed on Google as one of the best. In my opinion, he is the best. Hire this gentleman if you're dealing with a DWI/DUI traffic violation. He litigated a traffic stop for a headlight infraction that turned into a DUI arrest back into a headlight infraction. Now that’s MAGIC! Thank you, Peter. Hiring you was the best decision I made concerning this learning experience.
