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.

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..

"Eased my mind"
For those of you who are faced with an unwarranted traffic ticket, do not pay! It is best to hire Doug to do the job for you. This posed somewhat of a hardship for me as I also reside in Massachusetts in the winter and the ticket was from New jersey. Not only was Doug's fee reasonable, but he attended court, got my points removed on my ticket, and took care of all the necessary paperwork and payments. I will recommend Doug for any further legal needs for my business in New Jersey. Thank you!

Doug Jones Is the Best
Doug and I have worked together a couple of times now and he has always presented himself super professionally and courteously. Doug has proved time and time again he will go above and beyond to get you the most favorable results, and he is GENUINE. I've had good lawyers, but Doug is more than just an attorney, he's become a role model, a positive voice and more than anything a great friend. He shows his passion for people and he truly wants the best for each and every client he encounters.

Hired Doug
Doug was extremely thorough and professional in my association with him. I was issued three violations and was at risk of having my driving privileges suspended. Doug possesses excellent relationships with court personnel, and was able to have my violations significantly reduced with lowered fines and court costs. He was responsive to my inquiries and explained the hearing process throughout the entire case. I highly recommend Doug!

Accomplished, Professional, and Accommadating
I was issued three different violations with serious fines and point consequences. Mr. Jones kept my mind at ease throughout the entire process answering any questions I had in a timely and professional manner. On the day I had court Mr. Jones performance exceeded my expectations. He reduced my three violations to 0 points and very minimal fines! I would definitely recommend Mr. Jones to anyone in need.
