Finally integrity appears
This is the first attorney that has integrity that is impressive. He was in the Courtroom when I was about to argue my motion to the Court. He saw I was representing myself and walked over to me. We stepped outside and before I knew it he had given me invaluable advice, both from an argument standpoint, as well as from a legal one. He would not accept a fee. Finally my views on attorneys has changed (at least some)

Highly Recommend!
My complex civil litigation was dismissed! Thanks to Craig Mitnick I can resume my career and put the past behind me. Sometimes people make mistakes, thankfully for me I had a dedicated lawyer fighting for me every step of the way. If you need a professional, straight shooter, you can’t find anyone better than Craig.

Peace of Mind
We had to find a criminal defense lawyer for a family member and Craig was highly recommended by a family friend. He was quick to answer all of our questions and handled the situation with great professionalism. He never seemed "too busy" to take our calls and his services proved to be a great value for the money. We couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.

Competent, Compassionate, and bright!
This attorney handled a very serious criminal matter for my family. He is unbelievable at what he does! I did not expect an attorney of his magnitude to spend as much time as he did with us. All charges were dismissed. Do not be intimidated by Mr. Mitnick's background and expreience, he is as real as it gets.

The most dedicated and respectable lawyer I have ever met
Unfortunately my son had a rather severe car accident in which his car was totaled and the police officer issued multiple tickets including criminal charges, a DWI / DUI, amongst other traffic violation tickets. The circumstances of the accident were complicated but thankfully my son is okay and no one else was hurt in the accident. We met with multiple lawyers, all of which gave us the same exact option of pleading guilty and accepting the 7 month license suspension. Yet when we met with craig, he proved himself to be the most thorough and knowledgable lawyers that I had ever met. He found a few cracks in the case that all the other attorneys seem to have overlooked with which he was able to save from son from the typical 7 month license suspension as well as from being sentenced to jail time. In my eyes he genuinely saved my son's life and for that I am forever grateful. Thank you Craig Mitnick!

Personal yet professional, knowledgable, highly reccomend
I am a retired NFL player who recently joined the class action lawsuit against the NFL. I have found that Craig Mitnick, as well as his professional staff, have always been very accessible to me. I feel extremely comfortable with my representation by Craig Mitnick. Craig is a very personal, yet extremely professional man who I highly recommend to anyone.

Craig Mitnick Review
I hired Craig Mitnick to handle a Superior Court matter for me. I was being sued corporately for work my construction company had performed. At the same time, the complaintants convinced the prosecutors office to charge me criminally with felony theft. My criminal charge was dismissed within two months of hiring him and my civil case was dismissed a couple of months later. The dude is good at what he does. Good guy too.

He saved my life
When I needed a lawyer I was referred to Craig Mitnick. I was charged with a violation of probation and I faced 5 years. I had almost completed my full probationary term of 3 years when I was charged with a second offense for possession of a bow and arrow. Mr. Mitnick went to the appellate court and overturned my sentence. I would refer him to anyone who needs a GREAT lawyer and a GREAT person.

Expert in All Fields !!!
Excellent Attorney, Very busy guy and well respected in NJ. Remember to always get full disclosure of charges before you sign with any attorney !!! Mr. Mitnick assisted me in traffic court and all tickets were thrown out due to insufficient evidence. My neighbor had Mr. Mitnick assist his son in getting help for a drinking problem so not to go to jail. One negative - VERY BUSY Will sometimes send another attorney if he is double booked that day. Very Professional and nice office help.
