Excellent Attorney
I hired Mr. Jones to represent me in traffic court for a summons which required an appearance. I reside out of state making this an issue and a video appearance was arranged. Doug met with the prosecutor on my behalf and worked out a plea for a lessor offense and no points on my license. He guided me through the process and made it easy. I highly recommend him and would readily use him again should the need for an attorney arise in the future.

Doug Jones recommendation.
I hired Doug Jones to help me when I was in a car accident with a bicyclist. From the very first phone call he was clear, helpful and professional. I always spoke directly with him. He answered emails and questions promptly. He was able to get rid of the points and lower my fines. I have no hesitation recommending Doug Jones if you are in need of a lawyer.

Professional and Prompt
I used Mr. Jones for closing on my house. He gave me great advice all through the process. It came with many bumps in the process but he worked everything out in a very timely matter. I also appreciated his phone calls or emails answered so quickly. That itself was so appreciated considering everything is turned around so quickly in this process. When I was unsure of whether I should move forward at times his professionalism helped me to decide what was best for me. He always had my best interest in mind. He is easy to talk to, down to earth and an all around good guy! I would highly recommend him for any legal matter and would use him again anytime I am need of a great lawyer!

Doug Jones in Barnegat, NJ - is the Lawyer to go to in and around Ocean County
Doug had two tickets of mine that he was not only able to get them reduced with no points and a low fine to boot! I didn't think he would be able to get one of them reduced, but he did! He told me exactly what he was going to do, and did it. He was extremely professional and very responsive whenever I contacted him and he was also more than fair with his fees. I don't have to look for anyone else if things like this happen again. If anyone asks for a lawyer in and around Ocean County, Doug Jones will be the one I refer them to.

Best around!!
Doug helped us in so many ways closing on our house, which was a chore in itself. Thankfully he works by himself so there is no confusion. After 6 months of dealing with whatever occured during the process, he held firm and got it done. Thank you so much, Doug for all you have done. You feel like part if the family.

"angel on my shoulder"
His name and his credentials gave me the confidence that i needed to reach out to him. i was so scared after being stopped at a check-point. It's always good to have someone that know what their doing in situations like this. He was always there to guide me and made me feel at ease. The case was resolved in a satisfactory way.

Prompt, Professional and Highly Effective
I engaged Doug to handle both the sale of my home in Middlesex County and the purchase of a home in Barnegat. He was prompt, professional and highly effective in representing us in both of these matters, always looking out for our best interest. I would not hesitate to use Doug's services again and highly recommend you do as well.

Excellent Attorney - Thank You!
Attorney Jones was very professional, extremely responsive when contacted at the last minute, and got right to the heart of the matter and helped our family. I have worked with many attorneys over the years, and Attorney Jones is one of the best! Our Municipal Court matter required someone with deep knowledge of the jurisdiction and local players, and it became apparent immediately that all those involved knew, respected, and trusted Mr. Jones to argue a fair resolution. I highly recommend Attorney Jones.

Outstanding Real Estate Lawyer
I used Doug to purchase my home in Bayville NJ. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, accessible & responsive. He gave me some excellent advice during my home inspection phase. I could tell he had my best interests in mind instead of just "rubber stamping" everything. The entire home buying process went very smoothly largely due to his diligence & expertise.

Outstanding Attorney
Douglas Jones represented me in traffic court and was able to arrange a plea agreement: I accepted the agreement and pled guilty to an amended zero point violation with a very minimal fine. I was facing a possible driving suspension and also, had I received any points I would have been terminated from my job. Douglas Jones not only saved my license and my employment, his fees were also very reasonable. Hopefully, I won’t ever have to retain his services again but if ever I needed representation I would definitely be happy to have him on my side. I highly recommend anyone who needs an attorney who is not only affordable but can get outstanding results Douglas W.Jones is 100% . His trustworthiness and results along with his reasonable fees makes him #1 attorney for me in Ocean County.

DUI
Hired for DUI case he was able to get reduced to reckless driving. Very professional was able to work out payment plan, and kept in contact with updates on the case often. He had a very good understanding of the laws that were applicable to the matter for which I was being represented. Although I hope to not need his services again if I ever did I would rehire/recommend.

Great Lawyer! Professional and down to earth guy.
Mr. Jones was nothing but exceptional during the whole process of my court case. He was reassuring and honest about what we could expect and I feel he took the extra effort to make sure everything worked out in the end. He got a very serious ticket dismissed (which could of left me with loss of license for 6 mts) leaving me with a ticket that only left me with a fine and 2 pts. He then was kind enough to set me up with all of the tools needed to get rid of those point with an online coarse. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Mr. Jones his service was above stellar..
