About Jason

Learn Jason’s areas of practice.


I have been a Lawyer for over 27 years.  But, as a second generation Lawyer I feel as though I have been interested and involved in the Law for my entire life.  Fighting for justice for my clients is my passion.  I have dedicated my practice to providing honest advice and determined representation to my clients that have entrusted me with their case.

Throughout my career, I have successfully represented clients in every county in the State of New Jersey, before New Jersey Federal District Courts, State Administrative Agencies, State Commissions, Zoning and Planning Boards, Municipal Governments and hundreds of Municipal Courts throughout the State.  My experience includes handling complex multi-million-dollar injury cases, successful jury trials in varied matters (including consumer fraud, estate disputes, employment litigation and personal injury) appellate cases and complicated business litigation matters.  I have served as Municipal Prosecutor for several Municipalities in Middlesex and Monmouth Counties.

My philosophy is to be available whenever my clients need help and to provide legal advice and services that make me proud of my work, every time. 

I have been awarded the Martindale-Hubbell AV® Preeminent Peer Review Rating. This accomplishment results from the direct feedback from local judges and attorneys with regards to their rating of my legal abilities and professional ethical standards.   

The American Lawyer magazine has recognized me in their publication Top Rated Lawyers for New Jersey for practice in the area of Litigation and Criminal Law. 

I'm proud of this recognition and grateful for the opportunity to help people and businesses find solutions to their legal problems.

Outstanding Attorney who truly looks out for YOU
I was referred to Jason Shamy by a friend and I retained him for a bodily injury case. From the time I met Jason, I knew I retained the right attorney. Through discovery, he did not leave a stone unturned. He called me countless times to question me about discovery that he had received (so that he would not be surprised at the time of a trial). Mr. Shamy watched expenses but at the same time, he prepared the case as if it were going to trial. I am 100% confident that the settlement outcome that we received in the case was because of his preparedness and readiness to try the case (if the matter could not be resolved). From a customer service aspect, you will never get this kind of attention from a larger firm. He kept me updated on all the developments in the case from the start. From a technical aspect, Jason is an intelligent attorney who knows the best way to get the job done. In addition, he worked with his adversaries to settle my case very quickly opposed to letting it drag out to the court steps. Though I became friends with Jason during the process, I am not a family member nor am I a long- time friend of his. I’m writing this positive review because I had the best experience ever dealing with him in this case.

Found an AMAZING Lawyer.
I was fortunate to meet Jason Shamy in the early 2000 thanks to a co-worker. I have since than never used anybody else but Jason. He is an amazing professional and is extremely knowledgeable. I have him dealing with a very difficult case right now and am extremely satisfied with how the case is coming up. I would definitely refer and use Jason Shamy's services again.

OUSTANDING JOB!!! Thank you Jason Shamy
Jason was recommended to me from a friend for a personal injury case. Jason is extremely knowledgeable and responsive. Jason and his staff kept me informed through out the entire process. Each step of the litigation process was explained in a clear and concise manner to my wife and myself. The pros and cons from day one of our initial meeting were explained in great detail as to settlement versus proceeding to trial. My wife and I are extremely confident we made the right choice in choosing Jason and my family is grateful for his expertise in guiding us through this difficult period. I highly recommend Jason and would never hesitate to use his firm in the future.

Honest and very professional presentation to Zoning Board
I highly recommend Mr. Jason Shamy. He represented me very well in a Zoning Board objection to a neighbor expanding a non-conforming use ( a two family house in a single family zoned neighborhood). It was a difficult and technical challenge, but Mr. Shamy showed a complete knowledge of the law as it applied and won the case for me. I like the fact he showed a personal interest in explaining all of my options and took the time to answer all my questions. Honest, professional and approachable.

Kudos to Jason Shamy
Jason Shamy is now my go-to legal resource for any issues dealing with my family, or my business. Over the past 10 years, he has proven to be an invaluable resource for legal representation, referral, and legal guidance in a number of areas. Jason has represented me in a number of situations, including: - real estate matters about a property line, - motor vehicle violations for my son, - referral to an excellent Penn. attorney for another son avoiding potential civil and federal charges, - referred him to my nephew for a DUI for competent representation, - referred him to a friend of the family for motor vehicle/DUI representation In all instances, he has represented everyone successfully and has exceeded expectations. In addition, Jason always returns calls in a timely fashion, is extremely professional and I feel he has always provided good, sound legal advice. I can whole-heartedly recommend him with the confidence of his track record with me.

Trustworthy and Dedicated
Jason Shamy is a very hard working and trustworthy lawyer. He constantly kept me informed of what was going on in my case and went out of his way to help me in any way he could. Jason always made me feel at ease, helped make communication easier for me since it is often difficult for me to get to a phone with working, seemed to truly care about my well being, and put a lot of time and effort in helping me to do the best I could in my case. I highly recommend Jason to others. I truly appreciate all he did for me.

Jason E Shamy saved my kid
I know Jason for a number of years. In the past he was successfully helping my kid in the juvenile court. I have re-hired Jason to defend my child in December last year. I was lucky that I knew Jason from the past: this time he has accomplished unaccomplishible - he got PTI for my kid! My gratitude is infinite! I can wholeheartedly recommend Jason as an excellent, highly professional lawyer, especially in complex cases

Knowledge and Class
Jason E. Shamy is one of the finest attorneys I have had the opportunity to meet and work with. His knowledge and experience are second to none.

Would recommend to anyone....
Jason Shamy has represented me in several different matters over the past 10 years including simple Real Estate transactions, Divorce proceedings, business contracts, and in a lawsuit I was involved in vs. Wachovia Bank that stemmed from an improper lien filing, which we won. I have always been completely satisfied with Mr. Shamy's personal attentiveness and thoroughness. He always kept me fully informed with what was going on and I always felt 100% confident in the direction we were going. Most importantly, I've always been satisfied with the outcome of anything that he has represented me in. Mr. Shamy conducts himself in the most professional manner and has always exceeded my expectations, which is why I have recommended him to family members, friends, and business associates....and i will continue to do so.

A True Professional !
I've had the chance to work with Mr. Shamy on a number of real estate transactions. During all of those times I have found him to be professional, responsive, thorough and well versed in real estate law. Most importantly for me I have found that he has been accessible during the entire process and afterwords. I would most definitely recommend Mr. Shamy for any and all real estate related issues. Also his staff is friendly, knowledgable and have always been helpful.

He's the best!
I have no doubt that should I ever need to hire an attorney, I will contact Mr. Shamy. I first retained Mr. Shamy for a traffic ticket. He handled it quickly, professionally and achieved the best possible outcome. I later contacted him for an insurance litigation and soon realized that no matter what type of case, whether it was a traffic ticket or a complex litigation, Mr. Shamy’s professional demeanor was the same: he was knowledgeable, attentive, honest, and pursued the best possible outcome. I have since used Mr. Shamy for a real estate transaction. He’s the best!

Best Lawyer experience I have had
From Day 1, Jason impressed me with his responsiveness and clarity of purpose. He did everything he said he would. This has not been my experience with lawyers in MD. Jason was referred to me, by a local law firm, and I wish Jason was licensed in Maryland. Thanks again. Don Breton
