Great attorney!
Tara is a wonderful attorney. She got me more than fantastic results. I am extremely appreciative of not only the results but of Tara's supportiveness. Throughout the entire case she made it easy to contact her and she put my anxiety filled mind at ease. She is excellent and an attorney I highly recommend! Thank you Tara for the incredible hard work and your positive spirit.

Superstar
Tara Breslow is a highly intelligent and knowledgeable lawyer. She is very diligent and methodical with her approach to a case. She was pragmatic and outlined the multiple outcomes and strategies regarding my case without embellishment. Due to her approach and confidence, I felt comfortable during a dubious situation. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for someone who would deliver the best outcome (my case was dismissed).

Superstar, charming, definition of a Defense Attorney!!
I had graduated union county drug court in 2019 but early on when I was sentenced in 2013, I relapsed and got a new possession charge in 2014. I please guilty and drug court picked up the probation and it was all run concurrent. However after I finished drug court I was told I still had to report to probation for the new charge I received. I ended up getting a VOP and was picked up on a warrant in may of 2022. We hired Tara and she got me right out of the county jail with a new court date. She was able to get the whole VOP dropped and my probation terminated!!! She’s an amazingly talented Attorney and I would recommend her to anyone who wants RESULTS. She’s very charming and tough and really goes to battle for you. You can’t ask for more when it comes to your legal team! Thanks again Tara!! -Joseph Latronico

Best lawyer in the state!
Tara was professional and compassionate from our first consultation to the court date. She fought for me to get a much lower charge than the original. I went from facing 6 months in jail to paying only a $100 fine. She is amazing and I recommend her to anyone who needs a criminal lawyer.

Paraphernalia/Possession Charges
Personable yet to the point. Keeps you updated every step of the way. Spectacular & timely communication in that Tara is willing to work with you on various platforms (email, text/call, etc.). Ultimately a great success and am very satisfied with the results that she was able to produce.

Exceptional Attorney!
I knew Tara was exceptional from our first phone call which exuded a knowledge, professionalism and confidence that immediately let me know she was a top tier attorney. Throughout the case Tara kept me well informed and was always just a quick phone call away for any questions or concerns I had. What an amazing feeling it was to face an unnerving situation with someone who I knew was vested in the best possible outcome for me. I truly felt like she was fighting for a personal friend and not just a client. Highly recommend!

Tremendous Attorney
It was a pleasure dealing with Tara Breslow during my recent DWI case. I thought there was zero chance I was keeping my license but she made it happen. I strongly recommend Tara to anybody who is going through what I just endured. Any time I had a question or concern she was there to answer. I am forever grateful for Tara Breslow. She will keep you on the road!

Strong, effective and knowledgable counsel
Tara guided us through an incredibly challenging and difficult matter and her advice and direction were always spot on. There were numerous times throughout the course of this matter that she provided guidance above and beyond other lawyers we have used in the past and showed why she was the exact right choice. Nothing ever goes 'as planned' in a legal process and she provided calm, strong and correct advice at ever step of the over year-long matter. We highly recommend Tara Breslow if you are in need of her expertise.

Phenomenal Lawyer
I found Tara through google in my area. She was highly recommended, and seemed to have the drive to go further than any other lawyers around. Tara was an excellent lawyer from the very start. She was thorough, and kept on me from the very beginning. She managed to get my case lowered drastically. Without her, I’d be in prison, and in a much worse situation. I couldn’t be happier with what Tara has done for me! 10/10

One of the best out there
I was down on my luck and I happened to stumble on Tara. She thoroughly explained to me the process of what we had to do and walked me through the steps and what not. She got my charge, which was pretty much set in stone moved from a felony to a disorderly person. Very helpful and knowledgeable, I would highly recommend this lawyer.

Truly amazing! Master at her craft!
Tara was my first call due to the highly spoken reviews I read online about her. My first initial consult, Tara was very honest and upfront with me about the possibility of my case going to a trial and the financial impact it would have on me if it did. She explained worst case and best case scenarios. She decided to take my case and I am so thankful and blessed that she did! My hearing was literally 2 minutes long. Dismissed! Call Tara.
