Jonathan is the best
Jonathan Ripps handled my wife’s case. She received a summons and was facing 5 points and a large fine. He was able to plead it down to a minor offense with zero points. He was courteous, replied quickly to any and all questions and made the entire process smooth. He’s without a doubt a great attorney and will call him if I am in need of legal services or advise.

Traffic tickets in Rockland county
Jon was fantastic, I was an out of state driver, facing 3 tickets and 14 points. Jon was recommended to me and I couldn't be happier with the results. He got 1 ticket completely dismissed and the other 2 reduced to no point offenses. The whole process was quick and painless with Jon representing me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, effective and experienced lawyer for your day in court.

Clarkstown Legal Matter
Jon was my attorney representing me in a legal matter that was on-going for approximately 2 years that I had no idea was even going on (which involved an arrest warrant). It came to my attention which gave me pretty high anxiety levels. Once Jon got involved all of that anxiety and worry immediately disapated. He assured me that I would not wind up in jail and most importantly for me not lose my job I had been working for a long time to get into that I was just recently hired for. The arrest warrant was vacated along with the criminal charge attached to it (and my anxiety). No jail time and I was able to keep my job and go on with life. Thanks Jon!

Excellent Attorney in Rockland County!
I researched for many lawyers to help me with a criminal offense. I went to visit several of them. Jonathan was the most sincere, non judgmental and confident in his work and that he could and would help me resolve my issue, His fee was amazingly reasonable and went above and beyond the work that was required in my case. I highly recommend Jonathan Ripps 200% I can't thank him enough !!!!

Miracle worker!
A DWI in NY means a criminal record which leads to a background check when applying for jobs which means all the money spent on college could potentially go to waste. One night of stupid decision making could of cost me everything but Jon, a miracle worker was able to get my case dismissed! Never in my life would I imagine that being possible. Thank You Jon!

Could not ask for more...
Jon was referred by a friend to handle a traffic violation and I could not have been happier with his services from the first phone call to the resolution of my case, which Jon was successful in negotiating a resolution that was even better than the original plea deal from the town prosecutor. Jon is attentive, responsive, listens well and is very good at what he does...could not ask for more of an attorney.

If you retain Jon for your attorney, you have made the right choice!
I hired Jon, after a thorough consultation, I had a very embarrassing, delicate legal issue with a family member. He never judged me, he believed in me and was with me every step of the way. I am a worrier by nature, but Jon literally took the worry of my case out of my head and into his very capable hands. He is an excellent communicator and responded quickly to my questions. Hopefully I don't ever have a problem like this again, but I wouldn't hesitate. I would definitely call him again!

Thank You Jonathan Ripps. Thank You.
If only the person facing criminal charges could be so lucky to come across Jonathan Ripps’s online reviews. I did! I spoke to several attorneys before retaining John, and I must say, he took away a load of anxiety and offered a great deal of straight talk explaining my situation. I am 200% satisfied with John’s performance and results. I strongly recommend consult with John as an attorney. Do yourself a favor. Call John.

Exemplary legal work from a trusted attorney!
Jonathan Ripps handled my case, from start to finish, with a savvy professionalism and with the utmost attention to detail. He kept me informed and updated throughout the entire process, and was easy to reach by phone and/or email for when I had any questions. I felt that he took the time to really listen to my objectives and lay out a plan of action for how we would get my case resolved. His advice at each stage of this was much appreciated and he made me feel much more at ease that we would work towards and get the resolution that we had hoped for. I would recommend the services of Jonathan Ripps to anyone who is looking for a sound defense for any legal issue that may arise!

Best attorney ever.
Jonathan is a top notch attorney. He takes his career at a professional level. He is very firmed, very knowledgeable, experienced and charismatic. Throughout the case he kept us informed, prompt, dillgent about the outcome weather good or bad. He is very idealistic. He told us before hand what the consequences of my case and what to expect before a court appearance. Eventually my case got dismissed as he promised. I highly recommend Jonathan Ripps. In layman's terms, if you have a server case and seeking an attorney to get out of harm's way look no further. Johnathan Ripps will bring reassurance to you and/or your family. His staff are very professional and helpful. You will not have to worry about a thing, he is truly the best.
