Jason did an excellent job in handling my pink summons. He explained to me all of my options and the best course of action for me. He kept me updated about my situation and always made me feel at ease. It was through his effort my case had a positive outcome. I highly recommend Jason.

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.

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.

I won't lie at first I was skeptical...I had a bench warrant in NYC from 2008 I now live in va the warrant was going to prevent me from gettinge employment I called Jason he helped me tremendously his pricing was great so was his timing he was able to get my warrant vacated without a fine and my case dismissed and sealed couldn't ask for better work I would recommend Jason to anyone who needs legal help.

Jason had my summons resolved to my complete satisfaction. Although it took several court appearances for him, I never had to go to the court. He was always reachable by phone and email, and gave the right advice and assurance so I didn't have to worry at all. I highly recommend Jason.

My wife and I were stopped by police while strolling at night near the gate of a schoolyard across the street from us in Brooklyn. There were perhaps a dozen people actually inside the park when the officers approached us, made interminable small talk, and a half hour later asked for our I.D.'s and gave us summonses for being in the park after 9p.m. (Apparently there was a sign, under a broken light.) The cops were clearly new, and gave us one piece of misinformation after another, telling us we could just go inside and each pay our $20 ticket. Turns out being in a park after dark is actually a misdemeanor in NY requiring a court appearance. Plead guilty or get convicted and it can never be wiped from your record in this state. (This would have been a major nuisance for me, as I travel internationally for work, and would have to go through lengthy and uncertain visa applications if I had a conviction to disclose.) To make matters worse, the court date was scheduled for a day when I would be abroad. Frustrated at the officers' misinformation, I called Jason Stern several hours later, probably around midnight, expecting to leave a message. Not only did he answer, but immediately briefed me and my wife on our options, gave us reasonable expectations for the process, and even just some general words of psychological wisdom that he has clearly gleaned from deep experience with this sort of situation. I texted him photos of the summonses, and he immediately noticed the officers recorded the county incorrectly. For a flat fee for both of us, Jason sent a retainer agreement that said under no circumstances would he plead guilty for us, and would handle all necessary appearances. I still wasn't in love with the fact that I'd be out of the country on the court date, as I'd anxiously want to know the disposition. Turns out Jason managed to get our cases dismissed before our official court date and before I had to leave. He knows (and is liked by) the relevant judge and court officers and other important people, which I think is a massive asset for making sure things go smoothly. And he's clever, which, as you might imagine, is what you want on your side. Obviously, park-after-dark might seem like a frivolous matter, but a misdemeanor on your record is a misdemeanor, with all the associated annoyances. If you choose to handle a court appearance yourself, things can go wrong. I'm pretty confident if you're stuck in a similar spot with a summons in NY, if there's a chance of getting it dismissed, Jason's going to get it dismissed. He's also really responsive by text and email, which is convenient, because you have a job too. Given that the experience was a pain to begin with, everything associated with Jason's handling of our summonses went as well as I possibly could have imagined. I recommend him in the highest possible terms.

Jason was very knowledgeable about a minor infraction/ticket issued by a police officer that could have gone on my son's permanent "record", potentially complicating job searches that require background checks. After a little prep with me (via email), Jason went in front of a judge and got the most favorable resolution possible. He did the job without a lot of wasted motion. He knows about specific judges in specific court houses in New York City, may have made the difference in this case. Most of our communications were via email, which is what I preferred. They were timely and as easy to understand as they could be, under the circumstances. I am happy with the result and I would work with Jason again.
