Represented myself in a NJ PIP Arbitration Proceeding
Living out of State, Mr. Ducey represented me in a claim against my PIP insurance company in New Jersey. He was very thorough in collecting all relevant information and extremely familiar with the rules of Forthright. New Jersey automobile insurance law requires that all automobile insurers provide those who are covered with the option of submitting a dispute concerning personal injury protection benefits to binding arbitration. My claim involved medical bills which were denied payment to the provider even though the insurance company had been paying them for years. Mr. Ducey presented my case in arbitration which resulted in a ruling concluding the claims and future claims involved in my complaint were medically necessary. I would definitely recommend Mr. Ducey and would use him again if needed.

I have hired John for a matter with my 17 year old Daughter and he is an excellent and compassionate Attorney. He was at court early and spoke to the prosecutor and had everything panned out early. He is awesome. I referred him to another friend of mine and he also did the same. In all, he is the best Attorney by Far. I will use him ALWAYS..

Mr. Ducey is all you can ask for in an attorney, and then some!
John has been my family's lawyer over the last couple years and has represented me for various criminal charges as well as traffic violations. He has also been very helpful and understanding, as well as very informative. He is easy to talk to and takes your case very seriously and really fights for the best outcome. Also, he is very fair in regards to pricing, and always gives you a feel that your case is of the upmost importance. I recommend John to any and everyone as I'm 100% positive he will represent you as well as he represented me.
