If You Have Been Seriously Injured …

You Need a Serious Attorney

As Seen In

My personal injury practice focuses on helping accident victims and families recover the full value of their claim. Insurance companies will do whatever it takes to avoid paying a claim. Don’t be a victim twice. Contact me immediately for a complete evaluation.


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.

NJ Criminal Defense Lawyer


Trust Your Case To A Board Certified Attorney. The Board on Attorney Certification was established by the Supreme Court of New Jersey in 1980 for the purpose of helping consumers find attorneys who have a recognized level of competence in particular fields of law. Attorneys may be designated by the Supreme Court as “certified attorneys” if they: are able to demonstrate sufficient levels of experience, education, knowledge and skill in a specific area of law or practice; have passed a rigorous examination; and have been recognized by their peers as having sufficient skills and reputation in the designated specialty.
