Posted by Steve
I was referred to Mr. Altman by my family's real estate attorney. I was charged with 3 serious criminal offenses in Middlesex County, NJ. I met Mr. Altman and he got me a bail bondsman right away so I didn't have to spend any time in jail. Mr. Altman's experience as a former prosecutor for Middlesex County was very helpful as he got the prosecutor to drop one charge and I agreed to plead guilty to the other 2 charges. I was nervous about going to jail when I was in court but Mr. Altman assured me that everything would be OK. He was right as I only had to pay a fine with no jail time or probation. I believe that his many years of experience kept me from doing some serious time in prison.

Steve is a wonderful attorney. I recently referred to Steve one of my clients (I primarily handle personal injury matters) who was facing some pretty serious charges in New Jersey. Because of a prior conviction, my client needed nothing less than a dismissal of these New Jersey charges or a not-guilty verdict. Steve obtained the needed dismissal. I highly recommend him.

Steve Altman is a preeminent criminal defense lawyer. He has the universal respect of judges and prosecutors, and obtains great results for his clients. For more than 20 years I have referred to Steve clients and their families who have needed representation in the criminal justice system. I cannot endorse Steve Altman strongly enough. He is the best.
