Extremely helpful
Mr. Garner was so helpful with my case. He reviewed everything so close and kept us calm when we got nervous. Because of his wonderful work and guidance he helped us out in a positive way.

self defense
I unknowingly got myself into a bit of trouble. I was struck, punched in the face. I retaliated; I did what I had to do I defended myself. A police officer issued me a ticket. I didn’t know that defending myself against an aggressor was breaking the law. Very bizarre and shocking, that defending yourself from someone who just halls of and lands a punch to your face, can be against the law. I was subject to whole host of possible penalties, plus I would have had a criminal record. Fortunately I hired attorney Steven Garner, he immediately began working on my case. He worked diligently with the court system and got my case dismissed and expunged. I am so grateful to Steven he did an excellent job I couldn’t ask for a better legal representative.

5 stars!!
If you have to deal with some extremely creative cop that turns your speeding ticket into bunch of other violations, Steven A Garner is the man you are looking for. You call him once and that is pretty much all. He takes care of everything. Always respond to phone calls which is quite rare nowadays. I hope I will never have to hire a lawyer again but if I do, I'll definitely call this man.

Domestic violence and Traffic violation
He reviewed two cases very diligently and made plans accordingly how to defend. Those plans worked and two cases were dismissed. Pretty happy with the outcomes.

Delivered exactly as I had hoped
I was facing up to 10 points on my license for my first ever traffic violation. Thanks to Steve I was able to get that down to two plus a smaller fine than I was initially supposed to get. He was very easy to deal with, knows his stuff incredibly well and answered all of the questions I had. Would highly recommend him for any traffic violation.

Great DUI lawyer, Bound Brook
Mr Garner was a great lawyer getting a DUI charge dismissed in Bound Brook NJ. His fee structure is very reasonable, without charging more than what is necessary to obtain the best outcome possible.

DWI
I was worried I would lose my license for a very long time, Fortunately with Steven's help i was able to get down to 3 months loss of license. He is also very easy to work with when it comes to deciding what to do, I would recommend hiring Steven for any DUI and DWI cases you might have.

Traffic
From violation charges to traffic tickets, Steve Garner is my go-to attorney. Steve is very understanding and always gets me the outcome I hope for. As someone who cannot afford any more points on my record, Steve always comes through for me.

Mr. Garner was terrific! I was written 10 tickets all together which included a DUI and ended up with a misdemeanor. His attitude was great. I was impressed with his performance and professionalism. There is no doubt that he is the best lawyer!

Steven Garner is the BEST
I got myself in legal trouble that could have ended my chances of advancing in my career, losing or even obtaining a job, losing my reputation and most definitely had jail time and court fines and fees totaling up to 10k. Before I hired Mr. Garner just our phone consultation was very warm and he definitely knew his laws and ways around them he assured me he could handle my case and since I was 9 months pregnant at the time of the arrest he told me to relax and focus on my new baby. The three months I waited for the court hearing I constantly reached out to Mr. Garner as I was very worried about my case and he kept reassuring me he has it handled and I will not be going to Jail. He didn't charge me extra for all the times I called and the emailed and was so quick to respond to emails and phone calls. He also worked out a payment plan for the retainer/payment. He was at the hearing before me and spoke to the prosecutor and got me exactly what he said he would and it was magic! No jail time and no excessive fines or fees. Steven Garner is a magician and if he says it .. He does it! I highly recommend him for all criminal cases!

Criminal Charges Ocean County Superior Court
I must say 100% the best decision I made was to hire Steven Garner I was facing several big charges in superior court ocean county with at least 10-15 years in state prison. Mr Garner assured me and my family that he would see to it that I serve no jail time at all, I believed him 100% but as a human you always have that scary thought that your gonna go to jail away from your family. Mr Garner did what he said kept me out of jail had several charges dropped and got me a light probation sentence my family and I can not thank him enough he did what he said he was gonna due was very easy to reach always communicated and kept us in the loop I recommend him to everyone I know for anything could not be more pleased thank you again Mr Garner for everything

Traffic
He was very professional and assisted me in two separate matters. He clearly explained the process to me and was patient answering my questions.

Excellent Divorce Representation
Steven A Garner handled my divorce for me 2 years ago. He immediately made me feel at ease and I felt comfortable discussing even the most delicate subjects with him. He made himself available to me through meetings, phone conversations and email. I truly believe that the advice that he administered was fair and unbiased. He has a very nice way of being able to present both sides to help you come to an understanding of the law. I have seen many friends go through this process and have always highly recommended Steve as an attorney. Mr. Garner's prices were fair and well worth every cent. Our case was handled swiftly with everyone feeling that they came out a winner.
