Wonderfully supportive and highly knowledgeable
Randy was absolutely amazing to work with. He offered good insight regarding true risks and made excellent suggestions regarding negotiating tactics as well as legal improvements to the documentation provided to us by opposing council. Randy identified a wide variety of the opposing council's errors and negotiated improvements on our behalf. I highly recommend Randy if you are looking for an affordable and honest attorney.

Trustworthy and Reliable
I contacted Randall to represent me as a first time defendant in a lawsuit. It was a very emotional experience for me and I was extremely terrified. During our first meeting, Randall's obvious professional competence quickly made me felt at ease. I was impressed with the time that he has already invested in trying to understand my case and how thorough he was at ensuring that I understood what the case involved. He listened to me, understood concerns and worked with me. Throughout the case we worked as a team. He kept me fully informed and was always a phone call away. I always felt that he had my best interest at heart. I was very comfortable with him as my attorney because of his persuasiveness, trustworthiness and reliability. I am fully satisfied with the conclusion of my case and highly recommend Randall.

Knowledgeable & Professional Defense Attorney
I contacted Mr. Randall Brett to represent me in a lawsuit in which I was a defendant. From our initial meeting, he listened to me carefully and asked questions to understand my side of the issue. Subsequently, I thereafter felt that it was the right choice to retain Mr. Brett as my representing attorney. Throughout the whole case encompassing discoveries, interrogatories and up to mediation, Mr. Brett kept me informed of what was happening case wise. His knowledge of law is superb and he is quite respected as I found out. This was very evident during the mediation process. At any rate, Mr. Brett was able to skillfully defend me to the conclusion that I was extremely satisfied with. Going through a lawsuit can be a very unsettling situation. However, having a competent, reliable and trustworthy attorney makes a big difference. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Randal Brett as an attorney - knowledgeable and professional, he is second to none!

client experience
I recently hired Mr. Brett to represent me regarding a traffic violation. From the beginning of the case to the end he was professional and provided the services requested which led to a favorable outcome. He told me what to expect and gave me all my options before going to court. He was there waiting for me when I came to court and led me through the process, presenting me with all my options, and acting on the decision we made on how to proceed. There were no surprises. The fee schedule was made simple and clear for the services rendered. I highly recommend Mr. Brett as a competent attorney for any legal case within his expertise.

this lawyer is outstanding!
I live in the Midwest but needed a lawyer in NJ for an employer dispute. I called a lawyer in NJ who was recommended and he recommended Mr. Brett. He was nothing like the stereotyped-lawyer-of -today. He was extremely competent, professional, affable, honest and affordable. He always made me feel that my small case was important to him. He was always in contact and when we spoke on the phone, it was always with him and not a secretary or associate. He has restored my faith in the profession.

Collection of an outstanding debt
A client had stonewalled my company in paying for services performed pursuant to an engagement letter. Randall Brett prepared all documentation leading to a confession of judgment and a payment schedule for the amounts due to my firm. He was knowledgeable, professional, and very thorough. He kept my partner and me informed throughout the process.

An attorney with integrity that truly works in your best interest!
There are two things that immediately come to mind regarding my experience with Randall: 1) integrity, which to me means doing what you say you're going to do when you say you're going to do it; and 2) he truly worked in my best interest. For people, like me, unaccustomed to dealing with legal matters, the process can be daunting. Randall took a lot of time understanding my issue and then explaining the road map. Understanding the road map was important, but then having the process move along as expected was key to my positive experience. Randall followed through as expected and communicated timely with me which instilled confidence that the process was moving along...also as expected. This attention to momentum reduced the anxiety from what could have been an overly stressful situation. Randall also provided practical counsel which, to me, short-circuited what could have been a long, drawn-out, process. Of course, this approach meant a more expedient resolution to my issue and reduced billings for him. Naturally, I will certainly recommend Randall to my friends and family!

Excellent advice
Randall Brett provided my partner and I with wonderful advice and assistance in resolving a complex matter with a tenant in an office building we own. His suggestions and aid resulted in an amicable resolution to a problem that we thought all but insurmountable. And he made himself as available as needed. Plus we found his fees to be appropriate and more than fair.
