    "I have been working in the Labor Movement now for almost 13 years. Throughout this time, I have worked with many different lawyers from all across the state of New Jersey. Never have I found another lawyer to be as professional and well rounded in all aspects of workers and employers rights than I have with John Coyne. His timelines in returning calls and answering e-mails is second to none. John is the type of lawyer who makes you feel as if you are his one and only client. These types of qualities and his wealth of knowledge are what set him apart from the rest. "

John is always willing to go above and beyond for his clients. I trust his judgment implicitly. Not only do I feel he is an excellent lawyer, but he is very personable and easy to work with. We are lucky to have him on our panel."

    "John Coyne is an expert on coverage issues in New Jersey. We utilize his services frequently, especially on complex coverage issues. He is also very personable and easy to work with."
    "John Coyne has ably represented me for the last decade. He has personally advised me in the sale of a closely-held business, handled several domestic and international real estate transactions, and provided assistance in the development of an estate plan for my family. I have found him to be caring, insightful, and customer centric in managing the diverse resources of his firm required to support my needs. He is always quick to repond, thinks outside the box, and has a very professional, yet personal way about him. I have referred others to John and he has consistently exceeded expectations. "
    "John has represented us for over eight years, handing employment practices, insurance, and general business cases with consistent success. He grasps issues quickly, explains things clearly to non-experts, and always returns calls promptly."
    "Joseph Lasala is one of the best lawyers I know, literally a "lawyer's lawyer.""
