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.

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.
