When You Need It Most

Welcome to My Blog

When you walk into my office I guarantee two things. I will be brutally honest about your case, and if I take you on I will work my hardest to secure a successful outcome.

At the law firm of Mitchell E. Ignatoff, you meet with me. I am the attorney who is handling your case. Make no mistake, your case is important. When you are charged with a crime I know there is a lot at stake. I never forget that. I am willing to work and work at it because I fully understand that your freedom and even your future is on the line.

As a lawyer who is a former prosecutor and one of 256 Criminal Trial Attorneys certified by the New Jersey State Court, I am not afraid to go to trial if it is necessary to secure a favorable result. We know that legal knowledge alone is not enough. Successful criminal trial experience is essential to protecting your liberty. Long term relationships and first-hand knowledge of the judges and clerks and how the system works are indispensable in securing the right result.

I am passionate about each case I take on. I love the work and defending people. Many of my cases have resulted in a reduction of our client’s exposure or an acquittal. I believe successful defense is about the details. You have to pursue all possible legal avenues. You must have superior trial skills. This is how for 25 years I have consistently provided our clients with the greatest opportunity for a successful outcome.

A criminal charge is scary. You can lose your freedom, your right to drive, or have a felony criminal record. We pride ourselves on the highest level of client service. Whether it's DWI, fraud, robbery, murder, juvenile crime, or motor vehicle violations, we believe that returning phone calls, compassion and understanding go hand in hand with legal expertise when it comes to representing those charged with a crime.

If you or someone you know is charged with a criminal offense in New Jersey or New York please call the law offices of Mitchell E. Ignatoff or email us to schedule a free consultation at one of our convenient offices in Englewood Cliffs and Bridgewater New Jersey.
