Mr. Uslan shepherded me through a complex DUI case that easily could have cost me my driving privileges. During the entire case he offered pragmatic consultation and made no promises as to the end result. He was responsive, compassionate and thorough all along. As it finished, I was acquitted of all charges due to his diligent follow up and detail oriented approach to the case. I would strongly recommend his services for any type of case.

CDS
I hired Mr.Uslan to defend me in a CDS case and he resolved my case and got the criminal charges dismissed. He defended me to the fullest. He was very professional and answered any questions that I had throughout the process. I had never been in trouble before and it was good to have a lawyer that was this diligent and affable to take me through a process which can be stressful.

Attentive, patient, and knowledgeable.
Very professional despite doing 100% virtually or on the phone. Always ready to answer a question or help. Glad Rich was available to help, it certainly could have gone another way.

The Best Around
Richard was a calm, reassuring voice that helped me navigate through what was an anxiety-provoking time relative to my moving violations. He handled my case with attentiveness, consideration, and kept my best interests at heart. He was extremely proactive with communication, educated me on what my best options were, and provided quick resolution that was more than I could have hoped for. I couldn’t be more thankful to have had him on my side!

Stop Looking
First, no one is paying me to write this. I'm doing it because time and time again Richard Uslan has delivered where most attorney's couldn't. He has a vested interest in his clients. You are not simply a source of income, you're a person needing help and Richard gets that - which is why when I say; I trust him, its sincere. I've used Richard Uslan on a few occasions and each has had positive outcomes! If you want an attorney who is knowledgeable, understanding and accessible, who will make the extra effort most attorneys don't, you can stop looking right now, you found him.

Best in NJ
Saved me from a 2 year license suspension. Was very upfront, honest and diligent. Explained all options available to me and was the most professional and courteous lawyer I have ever hired. I have had lawyers show up late to court and some not show up at all. Mr Uslan was already at the courthouse working with the prosecutor before I had arrived. Extremely grateful to be represented by a truly first rate defense attorney.

Richard Uslan - Highly recommended!
I hired Richard Uslan to represent me in Raritan Township Court. I was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, failure to report an accident, reckless driving, and improper passing. The penalty for leaving the scene of an accident is a 6 month suspension your driver's license. Richard was able to have the leaving the scene, and the reckless driving tickets dropped, and the other 2 tickets were amended to a no points violations. Richard is an excellent attorney and I highly recommend him.

Experienced, direct, confident. Best lawyer around
Richard uslan was great. He was early and spoke to the prosecutor before I arrived. He knew exactly what was going to happen and even though the court wanted to add additional charges, he had the most major changes dropped. Without his expertise i would have lost my license and paid much more in fines. He is the best lawyer I've ever had.

I retained Mr. Richard Uslan to defend me in 2016. My case recently resolved in 2018 , ( NJSP/GSP), Woodbridge, NJ , with regards to several Motor Vehicle violations. These included DUI, speeding, reckless and improper lane change. If you’re looking for a professional, diligent, intelligent Defense Attorney, look no further. Rich will advise and keep you updated on all aspects of your case. His experience, tactics and development of resolving your situation to a positive outcome is excellent. My initial consultation/interview was my starting point. Your input to your defense is valuable. Our subsequent meetings evolved into my defense. My outcome was outstanding. If your “ALL IN” when it comes to your defense, this is your attorney. I cannot endorse this man enough. He is an excellent defense attorney who knows the law. My daughter has also used Mr. Uslan’s services in the past for a speeding ticket violation to a successful outcome.

Very Good Attorney
I consulted and invited attorney Mr. Uslan helped me to defend in the court for my car accident. I was quite nervous. It was three charges in total. He helped me rescheduled the court date. Helped me smoothly answered all the questions in the court by the prosecutor. The time in the court was also very short. Finally it ends with quite minor payments. I will definitely suggest Mr. Uslan to other friends in similar situation in the future.

DWI Case
Attorney Uslan is an superb lawyer. Very understanding, and passionate with the work he does. He will sit down and find every possible way to accommodate his clients and make them the happiest. He examined the police report and found ways to get me the minimal penalties. A deserved 7-12 months without a drivers license was my original penalty, but got it down to 90 days. His work was and forever will be appreciated and exceptional. Definitely would recommend to anybody! 10/10!!

Excellent Attorney
I have used Rich for both criminal and traffic violations for a few years. Possessing years of experience and impressive expertise of the law, importantly, he is also responsive, methodical and demonstrates a true compassionate concern. Unknown to Mr. Uslan prior to any violations, our rapport has grown, the relationship is excellent and would not chose any other attorney for representation. He has a good way in all aspects and always pursues to create the best result.
