A testament to the Excellence of Jay Weinberg
If you need a criminal defense or DWI lawyer, Jay Weinberg would not just be my top recommendation as legal counsel, but also is one of the most compassionate individuals I have ever met. After helping a family member with a DWI issue, I sought out Jay Weinberg's help with a criminal charge, and after speaking to this gentleman for 10 minutes I immediately saw why my family member had recommended him to me. Mr Weinberg's professionalism can only be matched by his genuine concern for the people he helps, and this degree of excellent extends to the people working with and for Mr Weinberg. The results of my case turned out better than I could have hoped for and I owe it all to Jay Weinberg and the wonderful people in his office. If you need legal representation for a mistake you've made in your life, do not compound your mistake by going to anyone other than Jay Weinberg.

Jay saved me from my case completely, I walked in expecting jail time and multiple fines. Because of Jay my main charge was completely dismissed and the other was dropped down to a small fine. Without him I would have been in serious legal trouble.

Im still speechless
He's AMAZING! He helped me with my situation, that seemed almost impossible. I walked into court scared out of my mind thinking I'm going to get hit with a ridiculous amount of fines, next thing you know I'm walking out clean and WITH MONEY. How does that even happen?! I can honesty say I couldn't have done it without him, he is a miracle worker! I'm definitely recommending him to everyone. I'm so thankful!

Best of the Best
If you are looking for an attorney that has the experience, the knowledge and will treat you and your case with attention to detail and a passion to win - this is your guy. Jay has helped me and my family numerous times for both mediation and motor vehicle violations. His ability to look at the facts unique to each case and then communicate them as events that the court understands in a way that stands out in compelling and compassionate manner - is a honed art that Jay takes great pride in. He is a master at his craft and has the confidence to convince and persuade with respect and without appearing arrogant – a vital balance required in most courtrooms when facing a judge. He will turn potentially life-changing situations into something people can deal with and accept with great relief. He will do it fairly - and with a lesson to help ensure that one understands how to prevent misfortunate situations (or bad decisions) in the future. I highly recommend him and would trust no one with outcome in a courtroom more. This is your guy.

Mr. Jay Weinberg was great. I hired Mr. Weinberg for 8 charges that were against me, a second charged DUI, possession in a motorvehicle, possession of marijuan, careless, reckless, obstruction, false statement, and lamp. He was able to drop my 2nd DUI, possession in a motor vehicle, reckless, and false statement. And for the possession and obstruction, all I got was a conditional discharge. He committed a miracle for me and I can never thank him enough. Without him, I probably would have lossed my license for years and pay EXTREMELY HEFTY fines. To top his magic, he sold his services for a very fair price. Unike other bullcrap lawyers who charge like $4000, Mr. Weinberg only charged $1500 for all the charges he had to deal with for me. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS LAWYER. He is literally one of the best around.

Great lawyer!
I recently hired Jay for a marijuana possession and contraband charges in Woodbridge Municipal Court in NJ. He was great! He was able to get all charges discharged with pretty much just a fine. I am definitely NOT the criminal type and this was my first time in court. Jay made the whole process a LOT easier on me. He talked me through the whole thing and was understanding on my anxiety. He answered all of my emails and calls right away and even spent time talking to me on the phone AFTER the case ended. I got a feeling like he actually wanted the best for me.... NOT what I expected from a lawyer. I would definitely use him again, although I hope I never have to!

Jay Weinberg attorney extraudinare
His fee was reasonable and I received a favorable outcome despite the charges I was up against. Jay has an undefined thing called "feel" when it comes to dealing with the courts. A lot of attorney's I've previously dealt with had egos that outweighed their talent. Jay set realistic expectations for me and actually exceeded my expectations. He strikes me as an atty who likes to underpromise in hopes to overdeliver. I was truly beside myself and couldve been knocked over with a feather from his results! He even called me the following day to ask how I was doing as he knew I was under a lot of stress and sadness due to my moms passing. Anyone who is interested in hearing more details of this case feel free to email me at [email protected]

Jay is absolutely the best without question
Jay not only listens to your case, he prepares for trial no matter what the circumstances are. That means he is absolutely prepared to win! I can only only speak from my own experience, but Jay has never even come close to losing. I cannot go into detail but Jay has helped me immensely on more than one occasion. I cannot say enough about Jay. He is not only your lawyer he is your friend. Just wait until you meet him in court and you will understand exactly what I mean. He is the most personable lawyer I have ever met that has your total interest at heart full time. If you have legal troubles, and you want the best outcome, please hire Jay. I guarantee you will be happy you did.

Great attorney
Jay Weinberg did a very good job representing my 21 year old son on his first DWI offense. My son alcohol level was twice the limit (.15). My son got 6 tickets and Mr. Jay Weinberg was able to get him out for just paying one DWI offense. In addition, he found a way to convinced the judge to not install the interlocking which is required for this level of alcohol. He also mentored my son and let him know the severity of the second offense. I would recommend Jay Weinberg.
