What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Our attorneys at Bhatt Law Group have decades of combined experience practicing in Jersey City and neighboring communities. We know the law and we know the courts. Our team includes a former prosecutor who can provide an advantageous perspective on your criminal or traffic defense, as well as a certified defensive driving instructor with a unique understanding of how negligent driving causes accidents and injuries.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We understand that many people may be reluctant to contact a lawyer because they're worried they won't be able to afford the fees. They may be tempted to try to handle their legal matter themselves, but that's often a recipe for a less-than-desirable outcome. When you've been seriously injured, your custody of your children is at stake, or you've been accused of a crime, we want you to have access to the quality representation and justice you deserve.

That's why Bhatt Law Group offers a free consultation about your case so that you can tell your story, learn your options, and discover how we can help. We also offer affordable fees for your family law or criminal case, and charge no fees for your personal injury case unless you obtain compensation for your losses.
