After a harrowing initial meeting with another attorney - who we decided NOT to engage - we did some more research and wound up making an appointment with Jason. What a great choice.
My son had been pulled over by a Trenton police officer who said he passed a stopped school bus that had it's flashers on. Although my son never saw the flashers (and, btw, has a great driving record), it came down to his word against the police officer. We were clearly destined for a day in court.
The first lawyer we met (NOT Jason, and not associated with Jason), turned out to be something of a sleaze who attempted to terrify my son with the prospect of 15 days in jail, 5 points on his driving record (which would double our car insurance for the next 3 years) and hundreds in fines. That first lawyer tried to get us to ante up a $5,000 retainer for the first of what he expected to eventually be 2 to 3 days of his time -- for a potential total of $15,000 in fees. We walked out, did some more research, and wound up making an appointment to meet Jason Volet.
So glad we landed with Jason. He was professional, calm, extremely knowledgeable from all perspectives, having also been a prosecutor for 15 years. He took detailed notes, discussed next steps, and we agreed to his fixed fee for this type of traffic ticket -- a fraction of what the other attorney had demanded as his day rate.
We met Jason at the court house on the assigned date. When the court doors opened, Jason met with the prosecutor well before the judge entered. They pulled my son's history (clean) and within a few minutes the prosecutor agreed to reduce the charges to a dangerous driving infraction if my son would plead guilty. Net penalty: $150 and a mandated fee of about $200 -- and zero points on my son's record. We were in and out of the courthouse within 2 hours, and were able to put this behind us quickly and economically with Jason's help.
I would not hesitate to recommend Jason Volet. I hope we never have the need for a defense attorney again, but he is the first one I would call should the need arise in the future. Highly professional, very knowledgeable, good communicator, excellent value.

I went into Mr. Volets office for a consultation after being arrested for a 3rd degree possession of a CDS. Being that this was my first time getting into any type of trouble I was very nervous. Mr. Volet is very knowledgable about the law and described what could happen. Not sugar coating; being real. Told me I was a perfect candidate for PTI. And being a man of action that is exactly what I recieved. I couldnt be more pleased with my results, its a stressful thing for many people but you can put your trust in him!

My experience with Jason Volet was nothing but great. He always made me feel safe and comfortable about my case and always had my best interest in mind. No matter what questions or concerns I had, he was always available to speak to me and clear up any issues I was having. Jason took care of my case in such a professional manner that made me feel very secure with the whole process. I would definitely recommend Jason to anyone who is in need of a criminal attorney.

This is my fourth time using Jason. Two criminal cases, one wreck less driving traffic violation, and one civil case. Very good lawyer. Always returns my calls briefly, and knows his stuff especially when it come to the criminal justice field. First time I got in trouble for a small marijuana charge Jason got me conditional discharge which involved no jail time, a year of good behavior, and minor fines. The second time I was charged with a third degree felony for being caught with a larger quantity of marijuana and facing a couple years in prison. Jason got me no jail time, no community service, and just two years of probation, and small fines. I also received a wreck less driving ticket in between these cases and the prosecution was trying to take away my license for a year and Jason negotiated just fines being payed and two points on my license with no loss of license. In my civil case I had around 15,000 dollars taken from my family during a police raid and my car. He got me my car back and more than three quarters of the money taken for my family back. Great lawyer. Hire him and he'll take care of business.

I've had a couple cases in the past few years, and I always go straight to Jason for my representation. He's down-to-earth, honest, and very knowledgeable when it comes to criminal cases. His personal connections to the judges and prosecutors of Ocean/Monmouth counties goes a long way. He's always available to call to you, and is kind enough to text you personal reminders of your court dates.
He's really quite wonderful.

As I have worked for attorneys for many years, I never thought that I would actually need one for personal representation. I strongly urge anyone looking for a credible responsible knowledgeable attorney to contact Atty Volet without reservation. He responded immediately to my inquiry. I was kept well informed and reassured. Jason was sympathetic to my nervousness and was on top of my case at all times. He is a knowledgeable, confident, and professional individual. I am very appreciative of his services and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an outstanding attorney.

I was arrested for posession of over 50 grams of marijuana and a scale in Howell Twp. I was charged with poss. w/ intent to distribute and other charges. The police also took in excess of $800 from me. Mr. Volet got me off on a conditional discharge. He's working on getting my money returned to me. I am extremely happy with Mr. Volets work on my behalf.
