Great understanding of the legal system.
Mark has been my attorney for 3 years and has guided me through a very difficult time. He has provided excellent advice and a detailed plan the entire way through a very complex fraud case. Mark has always returned my call the same business day if I was unable to get him in the office. I highly recommend his services to anyone in need.

Highly experienced and brilliant!
Mark represented me in 2010 on a criminal case involving charges that included aggravated assault and possession of an unlawful weapon. He was extremely honest, open and real. My mother and I consulted with a few attorneys, but instantly retained Mark based off of our gut feeling upon our first meeting with him. He was extremely reasonably-priced and when the very emotional week of trial time came, I don't think that he slept either. He impressed my family and I so much that even on the final sleepless night that the jury was out on deliberation, my mother, mommom, and I all agreed no matter the outcome the next morning, we couldn't have asked for more. Mark blew our minds away with his intelligence and experience and far exceeded our expectations. Even the court interpreter was in tears when I was found NOT GUILTY on ALL charges. I put my life and future in Mark's hands, and I would do so again in a heartbeat.

My saving grace
I met Mark through a referral and I am extremely glad that I did. I was dealing with a former employer trying to completely ruin my life and Mark really helped navigate through the process. His knowledge and advice has been spot on and I can't even imagine where I would be without him. I highly recommend Mark to anyone.

Amazing Representative!
I first met Mark Catanzaro a few years ago through a friend. I had a very serious and complex situation involving allegations of financial fraud. I decided to take my friends recommendation and hire Mark. The fee was reasonable and the plan moving forward was clear. He was able to understand all of my business records from top to bottom. He was very prepared and battled on my behalf to tell my story. We came out on top. Mr. Catanzaro is the best lawyer trial lawyer in NJ. I am glad I listened Mark. THANK YOU!
