Peter what you have done for me! L P - February 11, 2021

Hey Peter,

Long time no talk. I just want you to see what you have done for me cause of you I’m not in jail and I have just got the most certs from MIT and now I’m in the Harvard BS-MS program. This was all possible cause of how you fought for me and made it possible for me to move forward. I just found out and I want to share this with you cause you have made this possible. When I do graduate from Harvard I will always know it’s because you gave me a 2nd chance in life.


"Peter did an amazing job with my case! Not only did he display complete professionalism but also demonstrated how truly passionate he is in regards to assisting his clients. I received 10 tickets and one of them had been a DUI with refusal. He devoted his time into finding what had not been just in my case. My court date came and I kid you not, a miracle happened. I came out with no DUI, no record, of arrest and no DUI with refusal. He is definitely one that I will recommend and definitely someone that I will forever be grateful for!"
A true miracle worker Craig - August 8, 2020
"I was faced with the greatest crisis of my life, a second DUI, along with 5 other serious charges. From the start, there was nothing my first lawyer could do to avoid a 2 year loss of license, 1 year interlock, classes, hefty fines, and loss of credibility. Peter was able to delay the case and ultimately force the prosecutor into a careless driving charge, dismissed the DUI, with no loss of license, because legal tactics which left the States case as a "house of cards". He has giving me a true new lease on life, which will not be squandered. God bless!"
Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Rebecca Reed - June 26, 2020

"When I first came to Mr. Lederman, I had put myself in a very bad situation and was scared of the outcome that I was facing. Mr. Lederman walked me through every step of the way with patience, care and virtue. He went through every possible scenario step by step in order for me to understand the consequence of my charges. He showed up at every court appearance until my case was complete. The outcome was better then I had originally thought it would be, because of the intense knowledge that Mr. Lederman knew about my case. If it wasn't for him I would have definitely had a very bad outcome. I highly suggest for anyone that faces criminal charges to give this man a call. Thanks again Sir for all your help in my matter."

The Best of the Best! Tara - January 18, 2019

"Peter and his team are amazing! They are responsive, caring and straight to the point. I am extremely grateful to have been referred to them. Peter took what would have been a 3rd DWI and by being extremely knowledgeable he looked at every and all aspects of my situation as a whole. He was able to find found that I wasn't properly counseled on a prior almost 10 years ago, so by knowing the laws and realities of it all we were able to get that offense vacated and turn the 3rd into a 1st. He was extremely diligent and went the extra mile to really help me legally as well as making some other suggestions of which helped my case and my life to date. I would highly recommend him and will forever be grateful. Also, if you ever need a witty joke...make sure to laugh at his too! 🙂 Definitely helps to soften hard situations."

Best darn attorney I've ever retained Akhlaq - September 12, 2019

"I was convicted of DWI in April of 2016 at the time my only legal status was DACA(deferred action for childhood arrivals) and had no idea my DWI charge could come in the way of my immigration status! So i hired an attorney who made me plead guilty to the DWI charge, a big mistake! cause shortly after that i found out through my immigration attorney that I’m no longer allegeable for DACA cause of my guilty plea to DWI.

I was torn into pieces i didn’t know which way to turn then i spoke to a friend of mine who suggested i should speak to Mr. Lederman of who he speaks of in high regards. I decided to give Mr. Lederman a chance to see if my case can be heard again and get the court to vacate my guilty plea, Lo and behold he didn’t just get me a post conviction relief but also got my case thrown out of the court i couldn’t have gotten a better attorney!

The best DWI attorney in the state of New Jersey! I recommend anyone with a DWI charge to retain him immediately i promise you wouldn’t be disappointed! Thank you Mr. Lederman for your outstanding service you’ve made the happiest person. God bless you.

Best regards
