Case Dismissed
I had the privilege of working with Jonathan Wasserman, on a legal matter that was of utmost importance to me, and I am beyond thrilled to share my experience. From the outset, Mr. Wasserman demonstrated a level of dedication and professionalism that exceeded my expectations. Throughout the entire process Mr. Wasserman exhibited a profound understanding of the legal intricacies of my case. What sets him apart is not only his legal expertise but also his unwavering commitment to his clients. He consistently provided clear communication, keeping me informed and involved in every step of the process. This transparency and accessibility were immensely reassuring during a challenging time. Most notably, Mr. Wasserman achieved the outcome that I had hoped for, but had seemed almost unattainable—my acquittal. It was evident that he genuinely cared about my case and was determined to secure the best possible outcome. I cannot express my gratitude enough to Mr. Wasserman for his outstanding work. If you are in need of legal representation that goes above and beyond, I wholeheartedly recommend Jonathan Wasserman. His dedication and expertise truly make a difference. Jonathan Wasserman you are a true advocate and a credit to your profession. Sincerely, Régine René

Perfect combination of confidence and humbleness.
My Federal case was being nationally covered (I am a Police Officer), and the news continued to wrongly spin the case in a direction which was damaging to us. Mr. Wasserman was extremely professional while dealing with the assorted media outlets. Mr. Wasserman always made himself available to me, even after hours. His knowledge and experience was obvious. He is extremely good at what he does and his presence in a court room is confident yet humble. Mr. Wasserman secured a "not guilty" verdict for me on all charges (3 Federal charges with a max punishment of 50 years) .

Jonathan Wasserman is an excellent attorney!
I am a health-care professional who was arrested/accused of DUI. I was deeply humiliated and so very fearful of how a guilty conviction may have forever negatively impacted my career! I consulted with a dozen attorneys before deciding to hire Mr. Wasserman. Besides his education, accolades, knowledge and experience, I was most impressed with Mr. Wasserman's ability to empathize with me. Of course, he couldn't guarantee my acquittal. But after my meetings with Mr. Wasserman, I always felt more at ease and that my world was not going to end with this DUI. It was a combination of Mr. Wasserman's skills and confidence that made him my 'Super Lawyer'! At trial, I was found 'not guilty'. I would recommend Mr. Wasserman, without reservation, to anyone in need of his assistance.

Review for Jonathan Harry Wasserman - Highly Recommend
Jonathan Wasserman was referred to me by another notable attorney when my son was arrested for home invasion robbery with a deadly weapon. This was a first-time offense and co-defender crime. Jonathan was able to prove that the charge against my son was irrelevant, and it was ultimately lowered to burglary of an occupied dwelling. He was also able to come to an agreement with the State that my son be charged as a youthful offender, and as a result, he served no prison time. Additionally, he did not carry the felony, and adjudication was withheld. Jonathan was very upfront regarding the seriousness of the penalty my son was facing. He did not downplay the possible outcome. At the same time, Jonathan was compassionate to both my husband and I as parents, and he treated my son unassumingly. Jonathan spent considerable time answering all our questions. Jonathan’s fee for services was fare considering the initial charge.
