Thank you
I hired Mr. Popper after being in an auto accident. While it took time for the process of this type of case & his office staff had a few changes, he pressed to get me what I deserved. Jessica was very helpful when I had a question or didn’t understand something & put it in layman’s terms for me. If needed again, I’ll definitely be calling Howard Poppers office.

Auto accident
Name: James Tranberg Email: [email protected] Phone: 973-3771345 Location: 23 Greenwood ave Madison NJ 07940 Description: I was in a accident on August 28th 2021, the driver of the other car said I cut him off, this was not true his car was 500 feet behind me where he said I cut him off but I could not proof this and he could not proof I cut him off, there were no witnesses. The police officer said he did not know why but the thinks something happen when I pull out of the parking. In his report he said I was at fault. Can a accident be reconstructed with Google be done and can it be used as proof of what happen at the accident? I consulted with a lawyer and he it would cost me more then the Insurance Co Is charging me and I should contact The New Jersey Department of Banking & Insurance I called them, but they said they were unable to help me. Thank you

Howard and his profession staff were curious, kind and caring. They took the time to get to know me and all the issues I was experiencing. Then they fought hard to get all that they could in my settlement. They finished my case by fully explaining each and every document to make sure I was well aware of all of my options before agreeing to anything. Both Howard and his staff are one of the more knowledgeable law practices I have ever dealt with. Great job to you and your staff. Mike B

Extremely competent and caring
Howard Popper represented me in a personal injury trip and fall case. He carefully and completely explained the process of pursuing my case and allowed me the time to recuperate from my injuries. Mr. Popper’s knowledge of the law is beyond extensive. He was never intrusive but always took the time to personally call me with an update. His staff was also always readily accessible to answer any of my questions. Mr. Popper is also an exceptional negotiator who was able to settle my case without going to trial. The outcome was very favorable for me. Howard Popper is not only an excellent attorney, but he is also a kind and caring person. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a personal injury attorney. He is simply the best.

Howard Popper review
I was referred to Howard Popper thru a co-worker after I was injured in a motorcycle accident. The accident was not my fault but the bills were being sent to me directly and my insurance was not covering my bills since it was on a motorcycle. After a consultation with Mr. Popper he told me that he could help me out. From there he referred me to a pain management center that help me with my pain. Mr. Popper from there had me sign some papers and bring copies of all the bills that were not covered by my insurance company. Mr. Popper and his team handle everything and made this tough process very easy. He was able to nogogiate with the other parties insurance company to cover my damages and then some. I would not have been able to get to this point without such a thorough lawyer as Mr. Popper was. I would highly recommend Mr. Popper to anyone who had to go through what I had to go through.

Howard Popper did a tremendous job for me
From day one Howard Popper was very professional and went the extra mile to help me get my case settled. He was also very honest during the rough times of the case but always gave his best effort to get the job done. I left him to do his job and rarely intervened and he did exactly what he promised, which was to have the best outcome possible. I recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

There is no body better
Howard and his staff were great. In addition to the settlement we deserved, I was always confident that Howard had my family's best interest at heart. He never wanted to see us suffer during the process. I never had to second guess or question him. His staff works seamlessly with him-they are wonderful to work with.

The Price Is Right
Mr. Popper is an excellent attorney. He made me feel confident and I trusted him to the fullest. I received the settlement I deserved and was happy with the settlement. His assistants were able to handle all questions in his absence and keep me up to date.
