One of the Best lawyers I have ever worked with.
I am an attorney in New York and was in need of repResentation in New Jersey. After a VERY DISAPPOINTING experience with a large firm, I found Ms. Noto. Not only is she savvy and street smart, she read every document I forwarded to her and had an excellent grasp of the facts, which contributed to our decisive win.

Criminal and Civil Defense
Maria Noto is a knowledgeable, patient and responsive attorney. She worked with me several years ago to resolve both criminal and civil charges It was a lengthy process and took tremendous skill to achieve what she did for me. Ms Noto knew exactly what to do, and told me the anticipated outcome at our very first consultation. Her office answers all communications timely and Maria has exceptional listening skills. Ms Noto is well know in the inner circles of the courts, for her professionalism and tenacity. Since our first engagement I always call Ms Noto first with any legal issues, and have engaged her or her colleagues several times.

Wrongful Death Settlement
Maria represented us in a civil case concerning wrongful death. A case that other lawyers would not touch and essentially talked us out of. The case was against a NJ detention center and considered unwinable by everyone but Maria. She walked us through what to expect and how long it may take. She was kind, considerate and patient. She not only won the case but got a substantial settlement above initial out of court offer as well. I would highly recommend Maria Noto.

Would definately hire again!
I had an issue with a homeowner resulting in unfair treatment from a township official. He took the word of the homeowner over mine without ever investigating the facts. So I turned to Maria for help, and had the issued resolved within a month. Her staff member Marisa was extremely helpful and thorough. I would recommend this law firm and would hire them again for any legal matters in the future.
