For Personal Injury Victims and Individuals Charged with Crimes.

The firm,  My NJ Injury Lawyer Howard P. Lesnik, Esq, is committed to providing its clients with professional, aggressive and trustworthy legal representation. I understand that most people will find themselves in need of a lawyer at some point in their life. Whether you are seriously injured, charged with a criminal offense or facing municipal charges, I am here to help.


Have you been hurt as a result of someone else’s negligence? Whether it’s auto-related or an incident on the job, I can help represent your interests. I provide skilled representation to help people who have been injured in car accidents and at work, as well as other situations. You have rights that your employer and insurance company will not tell you about, but you can be sure that I will advise you of all your rights and options. I will work to make sure you get the medical attention and assistance you need and back on your feet. I don’t get paid until the work is completed and you receive compensation.


Facing a criminal charge is ALWAYS a serious matter requiring serious defense. My criminal defense practice takes every case seriously. As an experienced attorney, I know that even a misdemeanor can have a devastating effect upon your life. In my practice, there is no such thing as a simple criminal matter.

When you are charged with a crime, it is not the time to pick a lawyer at random. You need a lawyer who has experience, practices exclusively in criminal defense, is known and respected in the jurisdiction where your case is charged, and is devoted to getting the very best result possible in your case. I am a board certified criminal trial attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court.

If you are facing criminal charges, do not leave the outcome of the case or your future to chance. Secure the representation, advice, and counsel of a qualified attorney with experience defending people against criminal charges.


New Jersey DUI and DWI arrests are extremely serious cases. The penalties for a conviction can be severe. The drivers license suspension ranges from a mandatory three month to 12-month suspension for a first offense to ten years for a third or subsequent offense. Each conviction may subject an individual to incarceration in the county jail – up to 30 days for a first offense, up to 90 days for a second offense, and a mandatory 180 days for a third or subsequent offense.

Lesnik by phone at 908-264-7701 or by simply filling out my quick contact form at the top of this page. I look forward to providing immediate assistance with your legal issue.

Howard is very professional and very pleasant at all times. He was amazing during the entire process of fighting for me and told me not to worry. Once he told me that I knew I made the right choice of hiring him as my lawyer. He kept me informed every step of the way and explained the entire process to me in full detail in a way I could understand. He calls, emails and text you to keep you updated all throughout the process as I was being sued do to a car accident with false accusations. GUESS WHAT??? He called me a few days ago and told me the case was dismissed. He is again AMAZING. I was worried but I felt he was confident that we would win but he did not tell me this. You could just feel the confidence in his voice. I highly recommend Howard because he will fight with and for you until the very end. He is the BEST!!
