Gets the job done!
Garrett is a gem. He’s a stellar attorney who knows the real estate business back and front. When my husband and I bought our first house, Garrett was with us throughout the entire process and made us feel very comfortable. Highly recommend him!!!

Real Estate Pro
Garrett was fantastic with our closing. From answering questions about the contracts and legalities of buying a home to helping to negotiate with the seller on several sticking points, he always went above and beyond to help. Having him in my corner helped to ensure the process was expeditious and highly beneficial for my purchase. I highly recommend his services and will be using him for any future engagements.

The best!
Mr. Fruchtman was responsive, quick, intelligent and knowledgeable. He was flexible with my difficult schedule (due to COVID) and helped me get through my first home purchase closing smoothly. He has also taken care of some things related to the my business that is unrelated to the house. I would recommend him without reservation.

Felt my issue melt away
Garrett is amazing. Doesn’t treat you like a client but a friend. Listened to my issue, offered advice, planned out the resolution and made it happen. Super easy to speak with. Explained in a way I could understand. Really comfortable experience.

Outstanding
Mr. Fruchtman represented my son for four tickets he received in the mail without ever getting pulled over. The tickets were serious enough in nature that he needed to appear in court before a judge. There was no proof that my son was even driving the vehicle in question. Mr. Fruchtman representation was swift and professional and had the case dismissed! We are extremely grateful and can’t thank him enough.

Municipal Court Representation
Garrett represented me in Municipal court after a car accident in Matawan New Jersey. He was very punctual for each court appearence and always returned my calls . He also kept me informed throughout the entire process and explained each step that needed to be taken in a clear and concise manner. Garret was able to successfully negotiate with the other parties involved and get my charges dismissed.

Innocent!
I was given Garrett's contact info from a friend to help resolve my DUI charge, which I felt was the wrong charge against me. After discussing the details of the incident, he clearly explained how he felt he could successfully defend me. He was so right!!!!! Garrett provided the outcome I hoped for! Thanks Garrett.

Garrett Fruchtman is the most professional honest carrying and hard working lawyers I’ve ever come across. He was able to prove to the judge that the state trooper who had falsely clocked me at an erroneous speed was wrong. He saved me points on my license, dmv fees, and insurance premium hikes! Thank you garrett

Great lawyer, highly recommended!
Garrett did a phenomenal job with cases for me over the years. I have hired him for some moving violations I've gotten, he was able to ensure I got no points on my license and the ticket fees where highly reduced. Recently used him for an accident involving my truck and trailer, Garrett was able to ensure I got full compensation for damages. Not going to find a better and more motivated person.

Excellent Attorney!!
I hired Garrett Fruchtman for my husband in a new York criminal matter. He was professional and knowledgeable and always got back to me. I thought our life was over because my husband was facing mandatory time for crime he committed. Mr. fruchtman got my husband released and he got the charges downgraded so my husband didn’t have to serve any prison time. If you want a lawyer that knows the law and will actually help you and your family, Garret Fruchtman is that lawyer. My family can’t thank you enough for helping us!

Excellent, professional, highly recommended!
This attorney and his office is superb. He went above and beyond to make the closing on our house happen after many roadblocks caused by an uncooperative seller. The office staff is also amazing. They all are very professional. I was never concerned to speak to his paralegal about the deal when Mr. Fruchtman wasn't immediately available. Overall I would highly recommend him and his law firm.
