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.

Excellent
Tara Breslow is the best in game. I was facing some serious traffic violations with loosing my license for 90 days. She represented me and got everything dropped to only 2 points. Even the judge said I was very lucky to have her representing me. I would refer her and use her for everything from now on. Thank you again Tara

Amazing lawyer
Tara is a fantastic lawyer. My whole family is very thankful for keeping my nephew out of jail. My nephew was facing serious charges . He was to do time, and with Tara’s help, he ended up with probation. If you want the job done well and professionally, call Tara. She keeps it honest. I don’t regret one bit more than a year ago that I decided to call Tara. I was going insane, wondering what we could do to help my nephew stay out of jail or at least minimize the charges he was facing . Best decision I ever made, Tara Breslow. Listen! If you need legal help, call Tara Breslow.

Superior court criminal case dismissed and expunged
After over a year of dealing with 6 criminal charges in Superior Court, Tara Breslow got my entire case dismissed and expunged. She kept me updated the entire time, easing my stress through the whole process. Tara is the only lawyer I will use in the future, her prices are extremely reasonable, and she will work harder than any other lawyer out there. Thank you Tara, you are the best, because of you these 6 charges won’t effect the rest of my life!

Amazing Attorney!
My son would be sitting in jail right now if it wasn’t for Tara Breslow. I will never forget the first day I talked to her I knew I made the right decision. My so. Was scared to death about what was happening to him but always felt everything would be alright after talking to Tara. I will never forget the first time he was arrested the first thing out of his mouth was Mom call Tara. He was arrested 3 times involving 2 different counties. Tara never gave up and because of her handling of the case all charges were dismissed against him in Criminal Court in both counties. Tara is a very talented lawyer and a compassionate person. I highly recommend her.

Highly Recommended Attorney!
I was in a truly difficult situation and had heard from another attorney that my case was going to be an uphill battle. Feeling disheartened, I decided to consult with Tara, and that decision changed everything. From the very beginning, Tara's confidence and expertise were evident. She acknowledged that my case could be challenging, but she believed she could secure a victory. Throughout the process, Tara's communication was exceptional. She kept me informed and assured me that she would address any potential issues as they arose. When the day of the hearing finally came, I was blown away by her professionalism and direct approach. Tara handled the entire proceedings with grace and poise, and she secured a win that exceeded my expectations. I cannot stress enough how much I recommend Tara as an attorney. In matters where a court ruling holds significant weight, you absolutely need a seasoned professional by your side. Tara proved herself to be that professional in every sense. If you're in search of an attorney has the knowledge to navigate complex legal matters, and can deliver results, Tara is the one to trust. I am immensely grateful for her expertise and support. Thank you, Tara, for turning my situation around and ensuring a favorable outcome!

Outstanding DUI Lawyer - Exceptional Results!
I was facing one of the most distressing situations of my life when I was charged with a DUI. Uncertainty and fear surrounded me, but thankfully, I found Tara Breslow, and she became my guiding light throughout the entire legal process. Tara's expertise in DUI defense is second to none. From our first meeting, I knew I was in capable hands. She immediately put me at ease with her compassionate demeanor, actively listening to my concerns and outlining the potential legal strategies we could pursue. Tara's confidence and extensive knowledge of DUI laws instilled a sense of assurance in me that she could handle any challenge that came our way. Throughout the entire journey, Tara remained incredibly responsive and communicative. She kept me updated on every aspect of my case, ensuring I was well-informed and prepared for any possible scenario. Her dedication to my case went above and beyond my expectations, and I always felt like a priority. Tara's courtroom prowess was truly remarkable. Witnessing her in action was awe-inspiring. She argued my case with an unparalleled combination of passion and intellect, earning the respect of both judges and prosecutors. Her ability to navigate complex legal matters and present a compelling defense was nothing short of impressive. Thanks to Tara's relentless efforts and strategic approach, my DUI charges were ultimately reduced significantly. The outcome she secured far exceeded any hopes I had going into this daunting process. Not only did she save me from severe penalties, but she also provided much-needed emotional support throughout the entire ordeal. I cannot thank Tara Breslow enough for her exceptional representation in my DUI case. She is a true legal champion who goes above and beyond for her clients. If you are seeking the best possible results for your DUI case, look no further than Tara Breslow. Her dedication, expertise, and unwavering commitment to her clients make her an outstanding lawyer, and I will forever be grateful for the positive resolution she achieved on my behalf.

the definition of a five star attorney
Tara would have received more stars if it were allowed. She is extremely concise in her knowledge of the law and how it is applied. Whenever i had a need to contact her she picked right up or returned a call almost immediately. My case in Monmouth County was resolved without fanfare with the most positive results possible. I personally loved the fact that i had one person handling all aspects of my case so no stones were left unturned and nothing fell thru the cracks JImmy
