Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
Sometimes it's not the cases we are actually hired for that make the most impact on our career. I was contacted by a Veteran who was a recovering addict and was facing criminal charges. While he was not in the position to retain counsel, I guided him through the legal process and he was able to diligently represent himself pro-se. He continues to text me every few months to check in an update me on his sobriety.

How did you build a successful practice?
I built my practice on the premise that I would rather have fewer cases but provide each client with the undivided attention they deserve. I also make myself available via email or phone 24/7. I want to be available to answer any questions or concerns my clients have throughout their case. I believe that communication is key to a successful relationship between and attorney and their client.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Reliability and communication are key factors that every client should look for from their legal representative. There are plenty of attorneys to choose from but the key to finding competent legal representation is to make sure you feel comfortable with your attorney and that they are they for you from beginning to end to guide you; not just simply to charge you a fee.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Specifically in New Jersey, each Municipal Court has their own set of rules and structure. It's extremely important to make sure your attorney has local knowledge of how that particular Court operates to make sure you obtain the best outcome possible.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
During a free phone consultation you are provided with some background on our firm as well as our experience with your particular Court and legal issues. We provide you with a fee quote and explain what is included in that fee. You will also be given the opportunity to ask any questions regarding our services and expected outcomes.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
In order to provide an accurate consultation, we would ask that you provide us with the Court name, your charge(s) and any relevant history regarding your driving or criminal record that may be relevant. The more information we have the better we can advise you on legal remedies and possible outcomes.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
New Jersey is inundated with attorneys who specialize in criminal and traffic law. I have distanced myself from the others by providing my clients with the one on one attention they deserve. I provide my direct phone number and email and your case will never be handed off to a secretary or paralegal.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The most rewarding aspect of my job is being able to help someone and provide guidance and legal expertise during a stressful time in their life. Unfortunately, clients rarely call when they have good news. I hope that my clients look back on our experience together and are able to reflect that I made a difficult situation much more manageable.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
I enjoy spending time golfing and making miniature dollhouses.

Are you involved in your community?
I believe a major part of my success is giving back to my community. I created a softball fundraiser for a local high school senior to raise money for her mounting medical expenses related to Spina Bifida. I hope to continue my charitable contributions this year with Team Levine supporting The March of Dimes in memory of their twin daughters born premature.
