Best Results Possible
I contacted Stephen when I was charged with a dui. Being an out of state driver with a prior dui meant a year without my license if convicted. Stephen was up front with me about realistic outcomes and expectations. Then he exceeded those expectations when he was able to have the charge dismissed. I get to move forward with my life and keep my licence. Thank you, Steve

Theft
As a first-time offender, I was very nervous about the possibility of facing criminal charges. My future career and everything I have worked so hard for was in jeopardy. Mr. Funk's provided me with exceptional guidance through the entire legal process. His advisability and confidence made for a painless experience and he ultimately had my charges dropped to the lowest possible degree. Mr. Funk is an fantastic lawyer and I can't thank him enough. Highly recommended!

Phenomenal Lawyer!
Mr. Funk is an experienced and knowledgable lawyer who will go above and beyond to resolve the issue presented to him . He prepares for his case very meticulously and is willing to answer any questions you may have. If you have any charges, especially anything drug related, he's the lawyer you need to hire-- he dismissed my marijuana possession and paraphernalia charges. His secretary is amazing as well!

Stephen Funk
I was involved with an organization and the director/owner of that organization claimed I harassed her as well as interfered with her donations and fundraising efforts. She filed criminal charges against me in the form of cyber harassment. Stephen Funk got all the charges dismissed and the court time was painless. Stephen is not only a superb lawyer, he is an outstanding individual. He will handle your case in the most professional manner as well as make you feel comfortable during a stressful time. Go with the best, go with Stephen Funk!

True Profesional
My case was a very serious one and possibly life changing.From the first time I met with Mr.Funk I was left feeling at ease and confident that he was in the fight with me and not just someone on the outside looking in ,which is how I have felt with other attorney's in the past.Mr.Funk was nothing but professional from day one always on time also always contacting me when needed.I would and have recommend him to anyone that needs representation from a true proffesional.My family and I would like to thank you for everything you did for us.

Traffic case, November 2015
I hired Mr. Funk to represent me in a traffic case. Mr. Funk and his staff were professional and over-the-top helpful with everything related to my matter. Someone was always available to answer any questions I had, and I had plenty. Mr. Funk had to travel a good distance to court on a couple of occasions and in the end he had my matter dismissed..I don't want to imagine what would've happened if I didn't have Mr. Funk on my side....Thank you again.

Life saving Attorney
When I hired Mr. Stephen Funk I was told he was good, so I went in with a bit of confidence, as the case when along I became more aware of the seriousness of my case, but after a few moths into the case I realized that I was in good hands with Mr. Funk, finally it was over and I could continue my life, without the fear of loosing my freedom, Mr. Funk's excellent work gave me, my wife, my grandson and my Family a reason to believe in the judicial system, I will be forever grateful to Mr. Funk for giving me what some people tried to take from me, my life. amazing attorney.

Fantastic lawyer!
Stephen Funk did an outstanding job with my case! I was charged with possession of marijuana (under 50 grams) and paraphernalia, and Stephen got all of my charges dropped! No Fines, no fees! I would recommend him for anyone!

DUI
The case in which I was represented by attorney Stephen Funk involved multiple tickets and potential incarceration. Mr. Funk's approach was systematically thorough, professional, and demonstrated excellent competency throughout the repetitious appearances over several months. The results achieved were better than realistically anticipated.

Exceptional
Mr. Funk is very knowledgeable about the law, but more importantly he was excellent guiding me through the whole legal process. Everything from discovery to my day in court was handled in an exceptional manner, and I could not ask for anything more. I will be referring anyone I know in need of an attorney to Mr. Funk!

I could not ask for anything more
Mr. Funk saved my life. I was indicted on a serious charge and was looking at a lot of time. I had 2 lawyers before him who did nothing. Then Mr. funk was assigned to my case and it was a breathe of fresh air. He is an amazing lawyer who works hard and understands the law. He went all the way with me through an entire month of trial and did a phenomenal job. I can't thank him enough and he could never understand how much I appreciate how hard he worked for me. He would be the only lawyer I would ever recommend to anyone. Thank you Stephen, Mark

Great listener, set clear expectations & executed the plan
After speaking with a few lawyers, who all rushed me when I explained my situation, I finally spoke with Steve and he was a breath of fresh air. When he asked what happened, he actually listened to my story and immediately replied I don't sound guilty. Instantly, I felt comforted. He then laid out what to expect and what he would do. I retained him and everything came together exactly as he explained. My court date changed multiple times and each time - both him and his assistance let me know before the court notices were sent. On the day of court - he made me feel confident and executed the game plan and my case was dismissed. What more can you ask for? He's a very nice guy, but he doesn't mess around. He got me the exact result that I wanted. Thanks again, Steve!

YOUR IN GRAT HANDS WITH STEPHEN FUNK!
I wholeheartedly endorse Stephen Funk as a great attorney. I met Stephen Funk in November 2005 when I was indicted by The State of New Jersey's Attorney Generals Office on 11 counts of Voter Fraud. I retained Ed Jacobs of Jacobs & Barbone and Stephen worked on the case with Ed Jacobs. Stephen and I would spend a lot of time during the pre-trial meetings to prepare and we became friendly. Stephen laid the ground work that led to me being acquitted on all 11 counts. In September 2009, I was indicted by The State of New Jersey's Attorney Generals Office again on 10 counts of Voter Fraud. I again went to Jacobs and Barbone, this time I retained Stephen Funk. I knew Stephen was a competent attorney based on my experiences with him in my 1st trial, I just wanted to be convinced that he would represent me with the same vigor as Ed Jacobs. Ed Jacobs is a legendary defense attorney and Stephen worked a lot of major cases with Ed Jacobs. My moment came two days before trial when I realized that I was ready to go to war against the State of New Jersey with Stephen Funk leading the charge. I took my wife and kids to see Sesame Street Live, realizing that I started trial on Monday, there was a real chance that if things didn't go well, that was my last Sesame Street Live for a while. I came and met with Stephen later that day and explained to him that I want to be able to attend more events, he then proceeded to take the words out of my mouth and say, "My goal is to make sure that you continue to go to Sesame Street Live with your family", it hurts my heart to see an innocent person go through this, but Im ready to go Marty, Im prepared and I feel great about our defense. That is all it took to convince me. In March of 2011 myself and 6 Co-Defendants were found NOT GUILTY of all Charges and Stephen Funk played the role of Lead Attorney for the defense. Stephen displayed such a calm, cool and great presence that was felt by the entire courtroom. During the trial I would get text messages at 3 am, with him outlining our plan for the next day. His wife said the trial took over their household with documents spread all over the floor of their house like wrapping paper on Christmas. I feel great about Stephen Funk, I owe him my life. If your life is on the line, spear no expense and get a great attorney like Stephen Funk. It didn't just stop with me, I have referred a plethora of friends to him and he has delivered every single time. If you want a 1st class attorney that will go above and beyond...I got two works for you...STEPHEN FUNK...Im Marty Small and I approve Stephen Funk!
