About Criminal Defense Attorney Matthew W. Reisig
Matthew W. Reisig has been an Attorney at Law since 1995. He is the owner of Reisig & Associates, LLC, which is located in Freehold, New Jersey. Mr. Reisig is a certified criminal trial attorney as so designated by the New Jersey Supreme Court. Less than 1% of New Jersey’s licensed attorneys can make such a claim.
In 1998, Mr. Reisig established his own Law Firm in Freehold, which has now grown into the aforementioned Reisig & Associates, LLC. Shortly after starting his own practice, he successfully argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court the seminal refusal case of State v. Widmaier, 157 N.J. 475 (1999). Over the course of his career, Mr. Reisig has tried contested DWI cases in all twenty-one counties of the State of New Jersey. No other New Jersey attorney makes a similar claim in their advertising.
Mr. Reisig was one of the defense attorneys in State v. Chun , 194 NJ 54 (2008), which was a landmark case relating to the reliability of the Alcotest breath testing machine. He was chosen to be the first attorney to argue that matter before the New Jersey Supreme Court on April 5, 2007. Most recently, Mr. Reisig was the attorney of record in State v. Maricic, 417 N.J. Super 280 (App. Div. 2010), which definitely established the discovery framework for all DWI Alcotest cases.
Mr. Reisig concentrates his practice in criminal defense, including but not limited to sexual offenses, drug offenses, juvenile matters and domestic violence. He has represented criminal part defendants in sixteen different counties throughout New Jersey. In many cases stemming from charges ranging from Carjacking to Aggravated Assault, Mr. Reisig has achieved Not Guilty Verdicts in jury trials for his clients. Mr. Reisig has not lost a jury trial since 2003.
