Amazing DUI Lawyer!
I can't recommend Mr. Janzekovich enough for a DUI case. I was facing a DUI, and he managed to somehow get it down to just paying a simple traffic ticket. He was kind throughout the whole process, responsive and professional. This man saved my life. Thank you so much, Mr. Janzekovich!!!!

Top notch
Ed was very professional and knowledgeable and was able to provide not only guidance but comfort to the family. With his skills and ability was able to significantly reduce the fines and penalties that I think most lawyers would've not done. He went above and beyond was a pleasure to work with.

Extremely please with the outcome of my case!!
Going into my final court date I was under the assumption I'd be losing my license for almost a year with an interlock for months after. The date beforehand he was able to find a crucial missing item that they forgot within discovery and coming to my final court date they still could not find it. I ended up with only 3 months suspension, NO interlock device and all other charges dropped. Truly incredible!! Always ready to answer any questions and explained everything in layman's terms. Extremely grateful for Ed and really pleased with the outcome of my case!

Three times at bat
Ed has handled three DUI cases for me. This last one was tough- the prosecutor dropped the ball but wanted to press and not dismiss. Ed wrote a killer brief and pressed his argument with composure and force. The case was downgraded to Reckless. You can trust Ed to find the best possible outcome for your indictments.

Second DWI Dismissed
I had a received a prior DWI less than 10 years ago, and was now looking at a mandatory 2 year loss of license, 30 days community service, 2 – 90 days in jail, fees and surcharges. Mr. Janzekovich explained the process to me, requested and verified all police records, answered my calls and emails in a timely manner and was always on time for Court. He was able to reach an agreement with the Prosecutor due to lack of evidence. I ended up pleading guilty to a Reckless Driving and received a 6 month loss of license.

The best outcome I could have hoped for
Ed is a miracle worker. It’s really that simple. For a flat rate price, yes he was more than anyone else I spoke to, he managed to get my third offense knocked down to a first offense. He did this by knowing ALL of the rules. He dealt with three different townships and persuaded two judges to to be as lenient as the law would allow. When I hired him he gave me his cell number and was quick to respond to any questions I had via text. What I paid vs. what he saved me is a no brainer. Hire him, he is the best.

A Lawyer You Can Trust!!
My attorney met with me to go over the incident and treated me with respect and never judged me. He was empathetic and reassured me that everyone make mistakes but that mistake didn't have to define me as a person. He worked very hard collecting vital information and requested old data to help my case. He spoke to the prosecutor's, officers and experts to dismiss and amend the charges.

Above and beyond Five Stars
I am originally from PA and have only been in NJ less than a year, and was pulled over for crossing over the painted lines in a turn only lane which resulted in a DUI charge along with about 10 other charges they added on. A few days after this happened I started receiving about 60 ads from defense attorneys wanting to take my case. Attorney Ed Janzekovich is the only lawyer I contacted based on the fact that he was a police officer before he became an attorney. Knowledge of both sides of the legal fence I felt was key to his ability to get all charges dismissed except for the valid DUI charge. He did all the legwork and was in constant contact with me up to and including the day of the hearing. When they say you get what you pay for, this couldn't be more true in this case. I could tell he was well respected in the courtroom by the judge and his legal colleagues alike. I cannot thank Attorney Janzekovich enough for bailing this PA girl out of a heap of legal trouble. I hope I never need another defense attorney but if I do, it's a no brainer... Attorney Ed Janzekovich is my first and only choice

State Police - DUI and other assorted charges
I was hit with a DUI - and to make the situation even more challenging, the arrest was made by the State Police. I was pulled over for passing without a signal during a lane change. They requested I take a breathalyzer test - in New Jersey, refusal is automatic loss of license - so technically I didn't have a choice. My breathalyzer reading was over double the legal limit... I had high doubts I would be able to beat this and was facing loss of license for a year (due to the high reading) and a mandatory device installed in the vehicle after. I travel over a 100 miles daily for work so to lose my license would be devastating not only for my job, but to my family/personal life as well. After contacting 7 different lawyers, Edward was hands down the lawyer I felt most comfortable with. I retained his services for my defense after the following, in no particular order: 1) Reading the reviews on several websites of him & his services. 2) Obtaining his expert advice/consultation. 3) His history with law enforcement & practice. After retaining Ed and getting to know him as the process moved along, I felt more and more confident with my decision to utilize him in my defense. Fast forward some months, Mr. Janzekovich and I had my day in court. Edward was not only able to get the charge dropped, but the others they "tacked" on as well - I walked out of the court without having to pay anything! His fees were more than acceptable given my situation, which also helped in contributing to my decision on retaining him. If I ever have need of a lawyer in the future again, my research has already been done. Ed, I just wish to thank you - and to contribute to these reviews, which helped ME in my decision-making process.
