James received a significant number of 4+ stars in 2019

Highly Recommend
I retained Mr. Fridie in December 2017 for my divorce and custody case with my ex-wife. I had a very difficult and complex case that dragged out for almost two years due to my ex-wife being difficult to settle with. He did an excellent job representing me. He was very professional, thorough, and honest with me throughout the entire process. My ex-wife wanted me to get little to no parenting time with our daughter, pay a significant amount of child support, and pay alimony. He was able to help me get equal parenting time (joint physical and legal custody) with my daughter, my child support terminated, and make sure my ex-wife was not awarded any alimony. He is a true gentleman and in my opinion the G.O.A.T. when it comes to divorce and family law. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Excellent
James has been my lawyer for a few years now regarding on-going custody issues. Along the way he has been very respectful, honest, understanding, and realistic. He always tells me what to expect and if my requests are reasonable or not. He has always been easily accessible, willing to answer any and all questions I have. I do not plan on hiring another lawyer anytime soon!

He saved my career
Mr. Fridie saved my career in less than 15minutes. I presented my case to him and within 1 months time, everything was expunged. I can whole heartedly say that they is no amount of money worth my freedom, but I would pay Mr. Fridie anything he asked comfortably, I owing that he will get the job done.

Came through in the clutch! Thank you.
I had a free consultation with Mr. Fridie after my final restraining order hearing was rescheduled. After just a short while into the consultation, I knew I was going to hire him to represent me. It was something about how personable and knowledge he was, and also how sensitive he was towards my situation. He was also very affordable and worked with me on payments, considering the next hearing was within 2 weeks of the consultation. He showed up for the hearing on time, prepared, and advocated on my behalf. Although the hearing was emotionally intense, I felt at ease being represented by Mr. Fridie. Needless to say....FRO GRANTED! and I'm very thankful.

Honorable and Coherence.
Mr. Fridie provided assistance several years ago regarding a family matter which he proved to be very well-versed when it comes to his area of law. What stood out the most, Mr. Fridie was upfront with what we were to expect as well as having a plan of action for whatever unknowns. Additionally, Mr. Fridie’s service charge was competitive. Another thing I liked about Mr. Fridie is he answers his phone, or if you leave a voicemail he will definitely call you back.

Highly Recommended and budget-friendly lawyer!
Here's what happened, my husband had a 1st offense drug case, he was not eligible for a public attorney at court. We're really tight on the budget, so what I did is I looked for a budget-friendly lawyer, I contacted several Lawyers in the area, they all gave me a high price for this 1st offense case. So I used the NOLO website, it will help you find a lot of lawyers in the area, and the lawyers are the ones who will call you. My husband received a call from different lawyers and they all gave us a high price, but James Fridie is the only one who understands that this 1st offense case, can be just a budget-friendly price. He's so nice, he immediately contacted us and set us up for a meeting. During the meeting he let us know everything, what will happen, what he's going to do, in the end, we left without a doubt and question for him. He assured us that this is just a simple case, and he will definitely help us the best way that he can. So he did! he really helped my husband and he now doesn't have a record. Also, James Fridie is so easy to contact, he will reply to you via email, message or call. Thank you for your help Mr. Fridie! We really appreciate it.

I have an expungement that needed to be filed and Mr Fridie completed it quickly and made sure he followed up with prosecutor office daily to ensure that the judge agree to sign the order. He also always reply’s back to emails or phone calls quickly. I highly recommend him.

Mr. Fridie handled a traffic case for my son. Mr. Fridie is well versed on NJ traffic law and applied his knowledge as appropriate for my son. He is also accessible and empathetic. Most important, my son was able keep his license and avoid permanent damage to his driving record.

A1 ALL AROUND.
I was trying to handle child support issues myself through the case worker. I was getting nowhere. I reached out to James who not only advised me on what steps I needed to take but walked me through each step expediting and executing the entire process. He truly cares about his clients. After everything was done, he followed up with me to make sure everything was going well. If you are looking for a family law attorney that truly cares about you and your outcome, I highly recommend James Fridie III.

Give Fridie a call , you won’t regret it !
If you are reading this and thinking of hiring a lawyer but unsure who to go with then I highly suggest giving Mr. Fridie a call . My experience was I called around trying to find a good lawyer for my case . Seemed as though most lawyers Didn’t really show my interest . Mr. Fridie wasn’t my first lawyer that I called but he was the last . After speaking with him I knew right away he was going to be my best chance . Mr. Fridie and his assistant were very patient with me and my case as it was dragged out for over a year due to jerseys legal system . So if your having a difficult time trying to decide on what lawyer to go with at least give him a call , I’m sure he will stand out from the rest like he did for me . Very optimistic , wellspoken , easy to get along with , all around Great guy to do business with even in unfortunate events . Thank you again Mr. Fridie !

Pleasant Demeanor
My Daughter was facing Drug and traffic ticket charge. Mr. Fridle III was able to have the traffic tickets dismissed and with the drug charge she receive a year probation and under $1,000 in fines. My first consultation with Mr. Fridle, I thought he was very pleasant, honest experienced and knowledgeable.

excellent attorney
Mr Fridie was an excellent attorney. He got my case dropped, and also only asked for half of the money that was agreed upon when it was all said and done. I'd definitely recommend him to anybody that I know that needs his legal protection

Review for James Fridie
He was very professional about the whole ordeal. He made sure he explained everything in great detail to make sure I understood the legalities of everything throughout the entire process.

A lawyer and a Gentleman
I hired Mr. Fridie after firing my previous attorney. And he hit hit the ground running. Everything went so much smoother..He was easily accessible at any time whether email, talk, text or in office. He's cool, he's honest, knowledgeable and he got me what I needed. My divorce was finalized in less than a year, and he came on about 3 or 4 months after I filed! God willing I get married again...but God forbid I have to get another divorce, I'm calling him again!.... I highly recommend him.

Exceptional Legal Counsel - Make Him Your First And Only Call
I retained Mr. Fridie as my attorney after receiving a Criminal Summons for writing an honest review about a local business on Google and Yelp, so I figured it would be apt to do the same regarding his practice. From the first time I contacted Mr. Fridie's office, he took ample time to review my case with me and give his initial impressions prior to receiving Discovery. During our first in person meeting, he proved himself to be a competent and capable Counsel, outlining my legal options and various scenarios I could expect from the Plaintiff and Prosecution. He and his staff were always available when I had questions or concerns and I never felt "lost" or uncertain about what was going on during the criminal process. He was present at each court appearance and always presented me with the options the District Attorney was offering without attempting to nudge me in one direction, allowing me to make decisions I felt were best for me and my family. With his legal expertise, he was able to take an annoying and convoluted case and achieve what is essentially a dismissal of all charges, for which I am extremely grateful. I am supremely happy with the legal services and representation Mr Fridie provided and will gladly recommend him to others with legal issues. Although I do hope it does not occur again in the future, if anything does I plan on using Mr. Fridie for all of my criminal justice needs.
