doubled severance
Jason Stern negotiated a severance package that was double what my former employer was offering. He went to battle for me, and promptly communicated to me every step of the process as it unfolded. He assured me that challenging this faceless giant would be worth a couple of month's patience, and he was absolutely correct. Jason clearly spelled out my options, offered strategic recommendations, spared no details, and delivered an excellent outcome for me, with kindness and patience. I am extremely satisfied!

Diligence and professional
I need a decades old record from Manhattan which Jason helped to find. It was particularly difficult as I had very little info and everything was closed due to Covid. He managed to dig it out and was extremely helpful in sending it to me overseas as well. Highly recommended!

Open Container summons in back in 2014
It has been so long since Mr. Jason handled my case, but I have to say that he is amazing. Back in those days, I was facing and open container case and he assured me that everything was going to be alright. The summons was dismissed ! Great work!

Public Urination Pink Summons: Section 16-118(6)
Jason was very helpful and knowledgable throughout the whole process, from initial consultation to the providing representation at the hearing - which was subsequently successfully dismissed. Jason has a vast amount of experience dealing with and navigating issues at OATH Court and as a result my matter was successfully dismissed. Very reachable throughout the whole process and very intricate in preparation, I was very confident with his representation. I highly recommend Jason Stern due to his knowledge of the NYC Courts, his attention to the details of the case and his approach to preparing me for my hearing.

Honest and reliable
Jason is very reliable and dependable! In my situation I was out of the country and was unclear about the status of my NYC open container issue. I was not sure if I had a bench warrant in my name, or if the ticket was discarded etc. When I asked Jason the price he gave me the break up and based on the situation he didn't charge me extra and was very transparent in every step of the way. He also gave updates on WhatsApp about going to the court, meeting the clerk, finding the ticket etc. Overall he was very good and knew exactly the process and steps from the very beginning till the end. I am very pleased as I was abroad and in a tense situation, Jason helped me resolve it very efficiently!

Great Lawyer!
I cannot emphasize enough how professional Jason Stern was. I called him numerous times for advice regarding a wreckless driving ticket for my son and he was patient beyond belief. I had retained a lawyer prior to speaking with Jason and they were giving me the run around, and not returning my calls in timely fashion and leaving me on hold for extended periods when I called their office. I strongly endorse Jason Sternn, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Jason Stern for all of your help!

if you want a professional hire Jason. thumbs up PLUS
I would highly recommend Jason. I used an attorney friend to find Jason and I am so pleased that I did. My matter was very time sensitive and a favorable outcome was paramount. From the minute I discussed my matter with Jason he had a viable plan and did not stop at the first sign of resistance, he found a way to reslove my matter sucessfully in everyway. The court clerks made some mistakes and what could have been very time consuming was handled the day of due to Jason's attention to detail. I could not have had a better experience. Use Jason if you want to have a true professional representing you.

Fantastic Results
Jason has been wonderful throughout the process of dealing with a speeding ticket in New York. He has kept me updated on the process as it has happened, with timely information, and keeping a realistic outlook the whole time. It so happened, through Jason's efforts, that I ended with a positive outcome. I'm sure that is due to Jason. I would recommend him.

Excellent Service
Mr. Stern was very straight-forward and honest on how he would proceed with a pink summons that was issued to my son in NYC. He completed the task with efficiency and professionalism and because of his efforts, my son did not have to travel the distance to appear in court. In fact, he was able to get the case dismissed. We are very pleased with a job well done.
