Firm Overview

Serving Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic and Union Counties

Legal issues can be overwhelming, especially when you are unsure of your rights and have no knowledge of your options in dealing with legal problems. It helps to have an experienced attorney who can offer an objective perspective and efficiently address and resolve these problems before they become even bigger issues.

My name is Gwendolyn O. Austin. I am an attorney, and in 2003, I founded my practice in order to offer effective and efficient legal services to people faced with family law, criminal law, traffic or municipal court matters from the Newark area, where my office is located, and in cities and communities throughout New Jersey.

Whether you need a family law attorney, want to fight a traffic ticket or require the immediate assistance of a New Jersey criminal defense lawyer who handles adult and juvenile cases in New Jersey, I encourage you to contact me.

I offer free, confidential initial consultations in a comfortable office environment. I offer affordable rates and accept major credit cards for your convenience.

Personal, Friendly and Supportive Assistance

When you visit my office for a confidential, one-on-one consultation, I will help you understand the legal issues, explain the process, answer your questions and offer alternatives that address your specific needs.

If you choose to work with me, you can expect this same high level of personal attention, accessibility and responsiveness throughout the case. At larger law firms, this kind of individual attention is rare and is usually reserved for only the most affluent clients.

I believe every client is important and should be treated with dignity and respect regardless of the complexity of his or her legal problem. I also enjoy my work immensely, particularly speaking and working closely with clients to devise creative, effective ways of resolving their legal problems.

You may come to me worried about losing your license, freedom or right to maintain an active, meaningful role in your child’s life — no matter your reason, I am here to help and offer the affirming, friendly and effective legal guidance needed to address and resolve the problem.

Contact The Law Office of Gwendolyn O. Austin. I am happy to meet with you one-on-one in a free and confidential initial consultation. Let’s work together to minimize the impact of a ticket or criminal charge. Call me at 973-735-2706.
