    "the superior court judge issued a written order reversing the municipal court's guilty decision"

    Our son was arrested and charged with DUI in early December of 2015. We got a lawyer who helped us gather evidence (arrest report, breath analysis and patrol car dashcam video). The problem was, he didn't present the evidence well. Six months later our son was found guilty in municipal court and faced seven months loss of license and many fines and other penalties. We decided to appeal the case due to discrepancies between the officer's arrest report, testimony under oath, and his patrol car video of the apprehension. We brought our case to Paul Brickfield and his handling of the retrial was professional and detailed. He spent time with us to discuss and clarify all of the details and evidence. A careful study of the officer's sworn testimony in municipal court was shown to be contradicted by his own dashcam video. Paul consulted with us and wrote an Appellate Brief based on sound legal arguments and highlighting the key facts based on the officer's testimony and video. The superior court trial came a few days before Christmas 2016, more than one year after our son's arrest. The day after the trial, the superior court judge issued a written order reversing the municipal court's guilty decision as it was shown that the officer made an illegal stop. It was and unhappy Christmas in 2015, but a greatly relieved and celebratory one in 2016!

    Very good attorney.

    Paul stayed with my case for 9 years when it finally concluded. He never failed to advise me of any matter at any time. He also showed concern for my family, with two children. As a single father. I am on the way back up in my life because of his expertise, and for that I am grateful. Highly recommended.

    Outstanding Litigator

    I am a legal consultant who works with many of the top criminal defense lawyers primarily in Northern and Central New Jersey. I recently had the opportunity to assist Mr. Donahue who was defending an individual who was charged with driving while intoxicated. As a result of Mr. Donahue's skills and expertise as an experienced litigator, the individual was found not guilty of this serious offense.

    Top Criminal Defense

    He was hired to defend us in a federal criminal case. It was a difficult case regarding controlled substances. Mr. Brickfield thoroughly researched the merits of our case, he rebutted the prosecutor's arguments and challenged all questionable facts. He was very knowledgeable, credible, and honest about every aspect of our case and we feel the positive outcome had to do with his professionalism and knowledge of the law. We were very pleased with the service we received and highly recommend him.

    Great Criminal Defense Lawyer!

    Paul is a great lawyer because he is smart, savvy and hard working. He has a deep network with other lawyers, prosecutors and judges. This is helpful since he knew the various players that we had to deal with. Paul was extremely well prepared for all meetings, whether it is negotiations or court appearances. Most importantly, he makes sure that you are well prepared. I think it's easy for Paul to always be prepared because he has such a depth and breadth of experience. In court appearances, Paul paid special attention to details and nuances and reacted appropriately. This comes from his years of experience and wisdom. You can't get this from a textbook! Overall, Paul has great communication skills and helped set expectations. He made a great effort to keep my family apprised on status of cases and next steps.

    Mr. Brickfield is the BEST coach for the legal marathon.

    We hired Paul Brickfield several years ago and he said, “be prepared for a marathon”…and he was right…and he was a great coach. When we first met, he did not know anything about my family, colleagues, friends, neighbors, or supporters; however, he took the time to find out everything about us to better prepare the defense. It takes a special individual to stay the course, offer knowledge on both sides – giving the pros and cons of various motions, outcomes, and hearings. Legal matters are fluid, and based on Paul’s connections with the legal community and prior legal experiences in County, Appellate, and NJ Supreme Courts, he provided the information to get the best possible outcome in many difficult situations. One of Paul’s many attributes is that he listens well. Whether it is from family members who are involved in the case, family friends who are still in law school, or additional hired lawyers (not from his firm) added to the team through his recommendations. Paul makes time to hear their points of view and incorporates them in a unified approach for the defense. The most important concern of any client, new to a serious legal matter, is open communication. Paul provided that whether responding to an email within hours, a call to his office and him taking the call nine out of 10 times, and calling his cell phone and again either taking the call or returning the call promptly. Paul understands the needs of a client to have their concerns, questions, thoughts, whatever, answered timely and with understanding. We recommend Paul Brickfield without any reservations - he is one-of-a-kind!

    Medical License

    I used Paul Brickfield on my case regarding my medical license. I had to go before the NJ Board of Medical Examiners which questioned my standards of practice as a physician. He was experienced in the health care field and legal issues regarding my case. He was intelligent yet down to earth and no nonsense when it came to counseling me on the benefits and potential liabilities. You need someone who is honest and truly believes in you. Paul Brickfield stood by me and argued my case. Because of his tireless efforts on my behalf, I retained my license. A man of integrity is hard to find these days. I highly recommend him.
