Going through the process, no one seems to want to listen to you. They have probably treated you like a number that is being prosecuted by a machine. The last thing you need is to have your attorney take your case and treat you and it as if it is like every other case. My office was founded on the principal that the future can be better than the present and we have the ability to make it so.
You will receive a consultation that focuses on your unique experience, while bringing our training and experience in having handled hundreds of cases. In a world of computers, data bases and gas chromatography, there is still a place for visiting the scene of the arrest and seeing things as you the defendant has seen them. Often getting a hands on view is what triumphs over bureaucracy and exonerates our clients.
After a client finds someone to listen to their side of the story, they want that person to fight for them. My office has the experience to listen to you, to find the crucial issues in your case, and apply our knowledge and experience to advocate for you. I am a member of the National College of DWI Defense and the Association of Criminal Lawyers of New Jersey.
I have been practicing for 20 years, starting my legal career as an intern in the United States Attorneys Office and also for United States District Court Judge David Trager. I then litigated complex matters throughout the United States. After gaining my experience with the government and with large national law firms, I opened the Law offices of James A. Abate, where I have successfully advocated for Criminal and DUI clients since 2008.
