Arseneault & Fassett, LLP brings together a team of seasoned, highly-renowned trial lawyers, widely recognized for their experience and abilities, united by dedication to a single enterprise: the focused and tireless pursuit of the optimal result for clients facing complex and daunting legal challenges.
The firm was originally founded in 1989 to combine the strengths of leading New Jersey criminal defense attorneys Jack Arseneault and David Fassett. The firm's lawyers include two consistently named as among the top criminal defense lawyers in New Jersey by Best Lawyers in America (as seen in New Jersey Monthly Magazine and New York Magazine). Our clients include large and small corporations, individuals, and New Jersey public entities and public officials. We are primarily trial attorneys, and represent clients in pre-trial negotiation, litigation, trial, and appeal of white-collar criminal defense, securities enforcement, and complex commercial civil litigation matters. We also handle corporate internal investigations, attorney ethics matters, real estate development and land use, and corporate transactional work. We practice in the federal and state courts of New Jersey, where we have deep roots, as well as in New York and nationally.
