Ross Gigliotti is a former prosecutor and seasoned criminal defense attorney in New Jersey whose career has spanned over 30 years. Originally from Cherry Hill, Ross graduated from Rutgers University-Camden where he also attended law school.

He initially worked as legislative chief of staff for a New Jersey State Assemblyman while in college, and was inspired to get into the legal field soon after. Ross started his own law firm in 1992, when his initial interest in the criminal defense arena began, and continued to evolve. In 1997, Ross was appointed as a municipal prosecutor in Voorhees Township, NJ, a position he held until 2000. This experience has given him an exceptional knowledge in the cases he handles today.

Beyond his varied criminal practice and reputation as a leading criminal defense lawyer in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Mercer Counties, Ross also emphasizes a DWI/DUI defense practice which is equally vigorous and aggressive.

Excellent legal representation by South Jersey Attorney
As a father of active teenage boys, you do your very best to help them grow up to become fine young men with high moral values and good character. Sometimes, they make poor decisions. Those decisions have real life consequences. Unfortunately, my sons made a poor decision and were faced with serious consequences because of their actions. Thankfully, I was connected to Ross Gigliotti, who met with our family and was able to help get my sons violations reduced and their records restored. Ross is a true professional and was honest, open, and fully transparent throughout the entire process. If you or your family members find themselves in a compromised position, I highly recommend Ross Gigliotti to help.

Amazing
Handled a domestic violence case for me. This was the first time I ever needed to hire an attorney for anything, and the first time I ever found myself in a domestic violence situation. Ross answered all of my questions, made sure I was 110% comfortable with every decision made, and made me feel empowered in this very depressing time in my life. He was completely professional the entire time, arrived half an hour early to defend me in court and had already spoken with the defendant, which was very reassuring and made the process so quick. He helped me through a very hard time in my life and I couldn't be more thankful to him. Would recommend in a heartbeat.

Honest and fair
I reached out to Ross on the recommendation of a friend. Unlike other lawyers who use fear tactics to get your money, Ross was honest and decent. I got into a car accident while on a suspended license (out of state unpaid tickets) and I was able to have my court date post-poned while I took care of those things. By the next court date I was able to walkout with just a few court fines.

Efficient, Professional, Diligent, Personable, Reliable, and Approachable
Attorney Gigliotti was the best for me in my time of need. Not only does he have a friendly personality, but he maintains absolute professionalism and works diligently on your case. He has a solid way to make his living without bleeding his clients dry. He reassures you of what to expect and that he'll get you results. I ran into him years after he represented me and he even remembered me! You'll be happy that you retained him if you ever need his services. He answers your calls and doesn't talk down to you or judge you. He simply represents you. He's what all attorneys should aspire to be.

Hands down, the best attorney
I have had dealings with Ross Gigliotti for quite a few years now. He is vigilant, compassionate, dedicated, driven and extremely attentive. There was never an unreturned message or phone call. I would recommend, and have recommended him to anyone I know looking for counsel. I was fortunate to have him on my side.

Even Satan himself has rights
Honestly, I would take Ross over L Pacino’s character in the devils advocate eight days a week. But no seriously, Ross has defended me in court on a plethora of occasions, and I couldn’t be happier. And he’s damn good looking!

Well worth it
Ross was recommended to me by a family friend after getting caught up in a bad situation. I really thought it was hopeless, but Ross ended up getting a better than expected outcome. I hope to never be put in a situation like that again (knock on wood), but he would be the first person I would call. I would recommend Ross to anyone; he really has your best interest at heart, and has the much needed skills you want in someone going to bat for you.

Excellent Attorney
Ross represented my son in a criminal matter (drug related), he was exceptional and kept me informed throughout the process and was able to successfully negotiate favorable outcomes for my son in some pretty complicated legal matters. He's also well known and highly respected in the courts. As he said, he would "clean up the mess" and he did an excellent job! He was an answer to our prayers. I would highly recommend him!

Great Outcome!
I live in Philly and was visiting my mother in Jersey. I got pulled over in Voorhees for speeding (guilty as charged) and wasn't worried since I had ONE drink. Well Voorhees cops must be bored because he had me get out and walk the line and count backwards- the whole song and dance. At the station I blew WELL BELOW the per se threshold of .08 but the cop charged me with DWI anyway saying I failed the field sobriety test. After 1 drink, really? Ten years in the military if nothing else taught me to hold my drink, so I knew that was BS. When I realized he was actually serious, I got nervous and called a handful of lawyers. I initially chose Ross because of his relationships with the Voorhees court and his fees were affordable. He was confident the DWI could be reduced to a reckless or careless driving since I was under the limit and so I was prepared to get some points and pay some fines. I was not prepared for the judge to toss the whole case. I swear he looked at my breathalyzer results and said "What? Did you have like one drink?" He thought maybe I had been rude to the cop (per the cops own report I was polite). He dropped all charges and reduced the speeding ticket to a 28 in a 25. I paid a small fine with 0 points. I call that a WIN for me, if not for Voorhees taxpayers who pay big overtime to cops for wasting time like this. BTW if the Voorhees cops want some real action maybe they should work in Philly. Thanks Ross!

DUI defense
I highly recommend Ross Gigliotti! My daughter was arrested for dui and I just wasn't sure what to do and if she really needed an attorney or not. Yes I believe it was a great decision to hire him. The prosecutor in my daughters case wanted to give her a whole year to lose her license and another year with the interlock system on her car. Her blood alcohol level was double the limit, but we felt as though this penalty was too extreme. Ross actual got the prosecutor to agree to only 90 days loss of license and no interlock system at all. We are so happy with these results! And another positive was the fact that his fee was the lowest when I called around. If you are debating on hiring an attorney for a DUI, definitely give Ross a call.

Rock Star Attorney
I was VERY fortunate to have been referred to Ross by a friend sometime ago, and have had the pleasure of working with him twice in the past several years. He is a very good attorney, extremely professional, compassionate and a very, very real person. Anytime I called him or texted him, no matter what time of the day or evening with questions or concerns, he has gotten back to me within a matter of a few minutes. He is quick to put your mind at ease, and genuinely understands and cares about getting the best results he can for his clients. I have recommended Ross in the past, and will continue to do so because we need more Rock Star attorneys like Ross in this world.

Ross Gigliotti is professional grade and the real deal.
I received four tickets about a month ago for speeding 86 in a 45, reckless driving, unregistered vehicle, and failure to display proof of insurance. This has not been my first time with motor vehicle tickets/points, in the past I have had tickets reduced to careless driving over 3 times which made me very nervous since I need a clean driving abstract for my career. When I met with Mr. Gigliotti he carried himself in a very professional manner, was extremely knowledgable, and was confident in his ability to get all fines dropped and told me in advanced that worst case senario would be maybe a two point violation. just as Mr. Gigliotti promised he had three out of four tickets dropped having me walk away with only a 2 point speeding ticket for 55 in a 45 which I could take an online defensive driving course to get those two points dropped. Mr. Gigliotti is the real deal without his help I would have lost my license which in turn could have potentially cost me my job.

very hands on and diligent
When I consulted with Mr Gigliotti, I knew right then and there that I was going to hire him to represent me in my case. He was very easy to talk to and gave off very positive energy. He understood that my case could cost me my career. So he promised me that he would seek a dismissal. And even though the case is still going on, he's been very accessible. Whenever I had any questions or if he needed to update me with some information, he was available. He showed up to ever court date on time and was ready to get thinvs done. There was one court date where a sit in prosecutor offered me probation. Mr Gigliotti, understanding my career and my situation, clearly rejected that deal being that neither one of us were happy about the decision. He pushed for another court date with the initial prosecutor so that we can get this case resolved with a dismissal. Mr Gigliotti was there with me every step of the way. I recommend him to anyone who's looking for a lawyer who's very accessible, understanding, and is very hardworking to get the job done.
