About Jacqueline

Learn Jacqueline’s areas of practice.

I have been a practicing attorney since 1988 in both NJ and PA.  In the true tradition of the Philadelphia lawyer, I began practicing in the City of Brotherly Love and learned how to aggressively and tenaciously represent my clients by litigating with and against some of the city's top lawyers.  After moving to the suburbs here in NJ in 2000, I opened my second office here in beautiful, rural Mullica Hill.  Our NJ office is now our main hub.  I still practice in the city I grew up in.

 

In addition to my professional life, I am a mother of three sons and a wife. I have experienced first hand workplace discrimination and civil rights violations and I believe that helps me to better understand my clients' needs and circumstances and to work harder for them. 

 

 

My practice has grown exponentially over the years, and I now employ three other attorneys.  We pride ourselves on our attention to our clients and to the details of each and every case.  In the law, I have found, that the devil is always in the details.

Very Knowledgeable and a Very Good Listener
I contacted Jacqueline Vigilante about an employment matter and she was extremely helpful and provided good sound advice. She really understands employment/labor law. I would recommend retaining Ms. Vigilante for any employment matter.

Outstanding Law Firm
From day one, I knew I was dealing with an outstanding law firm and I could not recommend one more highly. From beginning to end, I was kept thoroughly informed regarding all aspects of my case. I cannot praise Jacqueline Vigilante and her staff more highly and if you want an a law firm that's going to fight for you and win, look no further.

Improper Termination by Municipality
If you're looking for a law firm that has experience and the resources to win your case, look no further. I recently used the Vigilante Law firm for a complex employment matter in which the decision was in my favor. I can't say enough how helpful and accommodating the staff and attorneys at the Vigilante Law Firm were to me during this most difficult time. Thank you Jacqueline and staff you guys are awesome!!!!!

Smart Woman
Jacci was recommended to me, by another attorney, as a true professional, in the type of counsel I was seeking. I made the right choice by deciding to have Jacci represent me with my case. I am more than pleased with her knowledge, tenacity and work ethic. Jacci is also genuine and sharp. You will have a hard time finding someone with as much integrity and class. I have and will continue to refer Jacci to anyone looking for legal services in the area of employment law, personal injury and civil rights.

Best Real Estate Attorney in South Jersey!
I just used Vigilante Law Firm again last week for a real estate transaction. As a Realtor, I have used his firm and/or recommended this firm to my clients several times in the past 3 years. I am always completely satisfied with their service, and I've never heard a complaint after a referral; in fact, I am aware of a few of my referrals who have gone on to refer their friends to this office. Usually my real estate transactions are minor issues- not very exciting and we are talking modest fees, not large payouts- yet I am always treated as if my business is the just as important as anyone else. I recommend Vigilante Law Firm without reservation.

My Best Advocate
After several failed attempts to find a lawyer to represent me (a 60 years old <at the time> wheelchair bound city planner) in a wrongful termination by my municipal employer, I found Jacci Vigilante and her excellent supporting legal team -- who was willing to take on this David vs Goliath challenge. Jacci and her team have proven to be consistently responsive to my questions and concerns regarding the litigation, communicative and collaborative with me in best stating my case before the court. thoroughly researched the issues, shown compassionate understanding of the damages done to my career, finances, and physical as well as emotional health as the result of this termination and nearly 4 years of litigation, and a staunch advocate in my efforts to get an equitable settlement. Although I know that I am not her only client, every contact that I have had with Jacci Vigilante and her team has shown me great respect for my individual client circumstances and needs. With her leadership and dedication, I am confident that we shall prevail in the courts, and that I can resume a normal life soon. I couldn't ask for a better advocate, and have/would recommend her to anyone needing great legal assistance and representation. At the risk of being misconstrued, I would happily say "There ain't no justice, like Vigilante justice!"

An attorney who will truly fight for you.
I was referred to Jacci Vigilante by a Lawyer who originally had my case. I have been working with Jacci for over a year now and feel she has been very empathetic to my issue. I am a very tenacious person and was looking for the same in an attorney. Jacci definitely fits the mold. I had the pleasure of sitting in on a hearing with her and was impressed by the way she fought for me. I was proud to be sitting next to her. She is extremely knowledgeable, upfront and honest and does not tell me things just to appease me. While my case is still pending and there is no outcome as of yet, I have the utmost confidence in Jacci, and know, no matter the outcome she has and will continue to give 100%.

I used Vigilante Law Firm for the first time in 2006 for a worker's comp case (they went up against a very large Philadelphia firm, and yet we won and I was very well taken care of). Since then, I have been using Vigilante Law Firm for all of my real estate law & tax-law issues. I recommend them very highly.

Professional and Caring
We had an issue that went overlooked... After contacting Ms. Vigilante, the issue was addressed and resolved. We couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Great Service for great cost
I first went in for a consultation with Ms. Vigilante and asked her to review the facts and let me know if she thought I even had a valid case. I was willing to pay for the time, but did not want to pursue a lawsuit if she thought it would be a futile effort. Jacci reviewed all the information I initially provided and we determined I had a case, a case worth fighting for and close to my heart. She helped me do all the paperwork filing and kept me informed of everything that was going on. She prepared me for what could take 3 or more years and what that would entail. She never sugar-coated anything. She was honest and presented the facts. She also told me to listen to what she said and if I followed her direction, we would be better prepared. Any questions I had, she answered immediately. If she was unavailable, she returned my phone calls within the day. I always felt like I was a priority. I followed everything Ms. Vigilante told me. I also told her that if I was offered a settlement that she thought was acceptable, to tell me to take it. I had faith in everything she told me. She had great knowledge of the case law and how it pertained to my case. All in all I had a great experience.

Unable to provide an honest review, yet I'll comment regarding the experience (or inexperience).
I contacted this firm and received an email with the questionnaire along with a telephone call from individual informing me to complete a questionnaire to ascertain if my issue was worthy of their time and effort, but I can only speculate that my completed questionnaire did not contain the responses that would reap monetary rewards. Also, there was never a consultation nor an opportunity to hire this firm, since there was no conversation or effort to contact me after the completed questionnaire was submitted. So I cannot provide an honest assessment or recommendation along with an honest rating of this firm, so safe harbor would lead me to be somewhere in the middle-of-the-road. I'll allow the reader to draw his or her own conclusion toward retaining this firm.
