Too influential attorney in Ocean County?
Mr.Secare knows all the judges basically within the county’ He ran several municipality’s at the same time throughout the years in ocean county ’ How who knows? I know in my case honesty was not essential’ Judges and lawyers even your own that came against him upon to side with him’ in the end results’ Legality did not seem to matter ‘ He seem to win’ I wonder if any cases are presented and won under his pass employee Guy Ryan who now seats as a judge in the county? The conflicts of interest’ and holding multiple jobs for big influential possible bargaining reasons need to stop so everyone can be treated rightfully in the court of law’ Justice needs to be fair’ Not one sided’.

Secare is in Charge of Ethics Committee for Lawyerss
We complained about all the attorneys who lied about our case and denied there was one. It went through Ocean County Court a Foreclosure so IT was legitimate but Secare knows all the lawyers, judge, did NOT HELP us at all!!! Nothing but a bunch of crooks posing as lawyers...disgusting! He needs to go from Ethics Committee he's 74 get some new people in there to drain the swamp of self-regulating lawyers. Common sense for stupid people.

I instructed Secare from the get-go I wanted a trial. Secare claimed the best strategy would be to immediately cooperate. When we met with the detectives, Secare had a lengthy private discussion with them, which experienced attorneys rarely, if at all, ever do because there is nothing your legal defense needs to discuss with the police in private. Secare promised me that everything I said to the police would be immune from prosecution without getting anything in writing, and when I asked him to, he told me it was not necessary. I self-incriminated myself by giving a voluntary statement. Then, the State offered a plea bargain that Secare accepted without even contacting me. When I told him I wanted to take it to trial, Secare said that he would not take it back. He then threatened he wouldn't be my attorney any more if I don't agree to the plea. He also refused to move back the date of my court appearance which was only two days away so that I could have more time to consider. Secare did not get ANY of the discovery (save the initial police report) because he said "it was not important." What?! Are you kidding me, Mr. Secare? I hope you are reading this one day. At one point, Secare told me he thought I was lying right in front of the Prosecutor...He later told me he was doing that for my benefit...I know, you, any person reading this, must think I'm an idiot, but I really didn't know any better. After I plead guilty, I instructed Mr. Secare to file a motion to rescind, but Mr. Secare refused. He assured me it was the "best deal" we could get. The plea was for 5 years in prison! Well, fortunately, I decided to get the opinion of a second attorney. And guess what? The second attorney got me NO JAIL! Something Secare COULD have done.
