    Recognized By The National Trial Lawyers Association, National Academy Of Criminal Defense Attorneys & Ten Leaders As Accomplished Members In Our Field

    Information that you find on the internet regarding an attorney or firm’s credentials can be deceptive in our judgment. It is not uncommon to read statements about prior employment that imply that a person was actually a prosecutor or a United States Attorney when, in fact, they were only an intern for a few months during a summer. Still other times there are statements regarding thousands of cases previously handled yet the attorney has only been admitted to practice law for less than ten (10) years and, in many cases, less than five (5). When you hire a firm like ours, guess work is eliminated. Four (4) of the members of our defense team possess over twenty (20) years experience and two (2) even have over thirty (30) years. We have been identified by our peers and independent organizations as top attorneys in our field. Mr. Marshall and Mr. Bonus are among the Top 100 Trial Lawyers of the National Trial Lawyers Association. Mr. Marshall has also been recognized by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys as among the Top 10 criminal defense attorneys in New Jersey.
