“Above and beyond”

5.0 stars

Posted by Julia

“Although my case was a mess due to poor representation previous to my hiring of this exceptional attorney, he gives it his all. He tried his best to help me and was professional, empathetic & even made calls that were above what I actually hired him to do. There’s no doubt in my mind that he knows the law in NJ and will give any client 110% of his effort to attain justice. He always responds to emails and calls in a timely manner which shows how attentive he truly is. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to hire a great attorney. Read reviews before hiring anyone. You get what you pay for, do not sell yourself short as I did before finding the Tormey Law Firm.”
