About the Firm

Choosing the right attorney for representation can be a challenging task for most people. It is important that a person feel that their lawyer has a command of the subject matter involved in the case they are hired for, just as much as it is critical that the client be assured that his or her lawyer will provide unwavering, committed service at all stages of the case. At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, we center our practice around five key principles (“RECAP”): Reputation, Experience, Communication, Availability, and Price.

We maintain a reputation amongst our peers, colleagues, former clients, and opposing counsel as a reputable, honest, and effective legal team. Our results speak for themselves, and our “A+” rating by the NJ Better Business Bureau reaffirms our commitment to defying the negative attitudes that are commonly associated with lawyers. Our firm can support our reputation because of a combined 100+ years of experience between the attorneys on our team in a vast spectrum of criminal defense and plaintiff’s litigation. We have four attorneys at our firm in the National Trial Lawyers Association’s “Top-40-Under-40″, and one in their “Top-100″. And our attorneys regularly attend classes to expand their knowledge on emergent legislation and to hone their litigation skills.

On the client-relations side of the practice, which lawyers all too often neglect, we commit to open lines of communication, with a 24/7 telephone line, and availability to schedule an appointment in one of 11 different, modern office locations that we hold throughout the state. We adamantly believe that no client should feel left in the dark on any legal matter. That’s also why we disclose our pricing up front, and offer flat-rate and contingent-based fees depending on the type of matter.
