John Stevens, Metuchen, NJ
I called Fred Niemann when I had to put my wife in a Nursing Home. It was a very difficult time and I needed council and advice on how to move forward from a legal perspective and to apply for Medicaid for my wife. In the beginning the whole concept was mind blowing. But working with Fred and the Paralegal assigned to me Diane Fanok, over time the process became very clear. I felt like we were a team working towards our final objectives. I really enjoyed working with Diane. She was professional, honest, followed up quickly whenever I called or texted her and took the time to explain some tough concepts multiple times to me. And along the way we could still have a few laughs. In the end everything we set out to do was accomplished and I was very happy. Thoroughly would recommend Fred, Diane and his team.
William & Marion Taffin, Monroe, NJ
We appreciated the thoroughness and concern about our issues. Good, clear advice for us to follow. Thanks!
Bruce Moore, Upper Saddle River, NJ
We were 100% satisfied with the terrific service & expertise provided by our assigned paralegal throughout this long process. She would always respond to our emails within minutes not hours. She kept us informed of all the necessary documentation that would be required for a successful submittal. She immediately contacted the Medicaid supervisor when problems occurred. My brother and I are indebted to her for her professional & caring services!
Donna Cohen, Esq., Marlboro, NJ
Preparing a Will when there are two families involved could be challenging. Mr. Niemann suggested that we take the time to figure out a clear and concise commitment which we were able to do. I now feel content knowing everything is written clearly in case of a tragic event.
Anthony D. Grande, Esq., Oakhurst, NJ
I retained Fred Niemann initially for my disabled son’s guardianship application. Then I retained him for a Will for myself and my wife and a Codicil for a Special Needs Trust for my son and could not have been happier with the results, cost and service provided by Fred and his entire staff. From the office décor to the service they were extremely professional and helpful from top to bottom.
Frank Lonardo, Jackson, NJ
We found the whole experience not only met our needs, but the experience was very informative. Also the staff was excellent, friendly and most helpful.
Matt McKeon-Slattery, Manasquan, NJ
I am writing first to thank you for assigning Maureen Knight and Bonnie Wright to me in selling my parents’ house. Maureen and Bonnie were always professional and responded to my communications promptly. They were also patient, given that we had three deals fall apart before a fourth one finally stuck and we were able to close on the house. Maureen went above and beyond by personally going to where my aunt was staying in Forked River so that she could get her signature for the closing.
Christine LaSpina, Red Bank, NJ
After utilizing your office for yet another hurdle in my life – I must say thank you again! Bonnie and her staff once again made a very stressful situation seem like a breeze. She was always available to answer a question or concern and handled my Real Estate sale without any inconvenience to me whatsoever. More importantly, she made me feel comfortable the entire process. Your office has been a God Send starting with Medicaid for my mother, Estate Planning and Insurance needs for myself and now the sale of my home.
Yolanda & Hugo Arias, Manalapan, NJ
I just wanted to say how wonderful, efficient and professional Ashley Bellino (Bonnie Wright’s paralegal) was while assisting us in obtaining a Guardianship this past Spring. The quality of her work was superb. In a world of mediocrity, it was so great to see Ashley and Bonnie take the time and make the effort to do things well. We are very satisfied and thought you should know. Thank you.
George Kasimos, Toms River, NJ
I wanted to reach out to you (Bonnie Wright) and let you know what a wonderful and painless closing of the aforementioned transaction we had. It was primarily due to your diligence, efficiency and hard work. I will refer your firm for any of my clients that are from Monmouth County.
Arti Sinha, Marlboro, NJ
I was lucky enough to have Mr. Niemann handle my affairs. He was so professional and compassionate during a very difficult time for me. My total experience was great.
Terrie & Ray Mertens
Now that our case has concluded, I want to thank Bonnie Wright for her advocacy and support. This has been a most difficult time for us for many reasons. I appreciate so much the competency and compassion with which she guided us and kept us on track. Please know that we think of her fondly and wish her continued success.
William & Janet Wainwright, Columbus, NJ
Very impressed with professionalism and very satisfied with the results.
Bonnie Wright has done magnificent work for me throughout this process. I know it wasn’t easy because of those judgements and the work that had to be done to take care of it! You guys always kept me in the loop and were always quick to answer any questions I had along the way! Right before I sold this townhouse my husband and I had purchased a home and I can tell you first hand that the lawyer that we used was terrible he never contacted me about anything until the last minute he didn’t have answers to questions I had and was just very non-chalant about purchasing a nearly half a million dollar home!! It was very nerve racking and the whole process was awful.. I am so glad my real estate agent David told me about Bonnie when selling this home and suggested I call her to handle the sale of this townhouse. Bonnie and her paralegal, Maureen have certainly put my faith back into the legal system and using a great Lawyer with amazing assistants that helped make me feel confident and comfortable regarding the whole process! Thank you again for EVERYTHING!
Maria Russo, Jackson, NJ
Fred Niemann was so personable and made us feel extremely comfortable, nothing pretentious about him at all.
Carol Roll, Wall, NJ
We were recommended to Hanlon Niemann by a friend and also a financial advisor for our estate planning including a Last Will, Power of Attorney and Health Care Directive. The entire staff was both professional and courteous and went out of their way to accommodate us. This made the entire process very easy.
Charles Dietsch, Manalapan, NJ
Hanlon Niemann & Wright balances legal talent with their concern and altruism. My comfort level was 100% when I first met with Mr. Niemann. His Administrative Assistant, Lucille, is a gem!
Laurie & George Bulinsky, Millstone, NJ
I truly appreciated all the quick effort and handling of our Wills. I feel that our estate will be protected now with the help of all your staff. Thank you all for your time, knowledge and expertise!
John McDonnell, Middletown, NJ
Mere words cannot express my gratitude that I have for Fred, Bonnie, Diane, and Michele for their caring, understanding and professionalism in the worst time in my life. They made a very difficult period bearable. Thank you.
Lorraine Banach is a highly competent and committed advocate. She made herself readily available to address any concerns that I had and has a very reassuring manner. I couldn’t be happier with the results of her hard work.
Joseph Marrazzo, Jr., Cherry Hill, NJ
I am a NJ attorney with 40+ years of experience in the practice of law. Medicaid applications are not my area of expertise. I consulted with three law firms who specialize in this area of law. Thankfully, I chose Hanlon Niemann & Wright. The firm is professional, knowledgeable, efficient and responsive. My sister received notice of enrollment into the Medicaid program within 40 days after the law firm filed the application. Lorraine Banach, my legal assistant contact at the firm, was excellent. I will recommend Hanlon Niemann & Wright to all my family, friends and clients who are in need of legal services concerning Medicaid law.
Anthony Mazza, Northfield, NJ
I have now dealt with Hanlon Niemann & Wright on several different levels in less than 4 years. I originally retained them for Estate Planning, Power of Attorney’s and Living Wills on behalf of my parents. Within this time, I have needed them on two occasions requiring eviction, and sale of rental property. I then needed their assistance for filing for VA Benefits for my father. In all instances, they have performed above and beyond what I had expected. This firm, and it’s staff, is second to none.
James & Kathleen Barbarello, Manalapan, NJ
Courteous, efficient and extremely knowledgeable on the intricacies of estate planning!
Anju Aragam, Somerset County, NJ
I am writing this email to express my gratitude for the moral support you have given me at the time I needed the most. By the time I reached the court house all my nervousness had gone and I was very comfortable. Thank you for the long ride. I want to take this opportunity to thank everybody in your office who have been very kind and supportive. Not worried about the outcome of the case, I thank GOD for placing me in the hands of a team of respectful excellent professionals who truly care. Thank you.
Christine LaSpina, Red Bank, NJ
Just wanted to take a minute to personally thank you for everything. It’s been a long road but, you and your staff were a pleasure to deal with and made the Medicaid process seem less painful.
I could not have gone through it alone. No one should attempt applying for Medicaid without an attorney. The process definitely needs professional guidance to avoid problems that may arise.
I can’t thank you enough, not only for your expertise but, for your hand holding and patience with me during this difficult time. Thank you.
Thomas & Jeanne Moscardini, Jackson, NJ
Matters handled promptly, efficiently and is a pleasant process, by a competent, knowledgeable attorney and his staff.
Rose Ciaburri, Jackson, NJ
There comes a time in everyone’s life when you start to think about protecting your assets, which you have worked hard to achieve in your life’s work. If you have children, you need to protect the eventual transfer of your assets with estate planning, etc. I have found both issues can be handled easily with Hanlon Niemann, PC. Fred can offer his experience and offer his advice to make the elder issues easy. I would recommend them to any of my friends and associates.
Noreika Sanderson, Weehawken, NJ and New York City, NY
I was in a panic. My fiancee passed away and I was named as a beneficiary of a valuable piece of real estate in Hudson County, New Jersey under his Will. Adding to my grief was the decision of the Executor to ignore the language of his Will and then he refused to convey ownership of the real estate to me.
What were my rights? What could I do? I called various people for a referral to an attorney experienced in probate litigation. Mr. Niemann was recommended to me and immediately he took charge. He filed a lawsuit against the Executor and aggressively fought for me throughout the legal process. He would not compromise or settle for less than I deserved under the Will. A trial took place and Mr. Niemann tried the case for me to the end. He was prepared and his office and associates offered tremendous assistance to me and Mr. Niemann in getting the case ready for trial.
Today, I am the owner of the property my fiancee intended for me to have. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Mr. Niemann and his very capable office.
Cindy Rygiel, Sayreville, NJ
The Hanlon Niemann law firm took my case when others wouldn’t. They worked hard to get my Mom the Medicaid Insurance that she deserved. My mom is handicapped and at only 75 years of age too young to be placed in a nursing home. Now, thanks to the hard work done by Fred and Diane, she can remain at the place she has called home for the past 4 years.. If it wasn’t for them, her time at The assisted living facility would have been limited. Both mom and I can sleep better these days and I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. Thanks again Fred and Diane!
Robert Augliera, Howell, NJ
I’m a World War II Veteran and reside in an assisted living residence in Monmouth County, New Jersey. I hired Mr. Niemann, an attorney recommended to me by my family attorney as a lawyer experienced in elder law and veteran benefits. I hired his firm for asset protection planning, Medicaid for my wife and the filing of an application for Veterans Aid and Attendance benefits. The staff and professionals at Hanlon Niemann were all very capable, responsive and caring. I feel like they are family to me.
My legal affairs were capably and diligently processed and I was able to obtain the benefits my wife and I desperately needed.
I am grateful to Mr. Niemann and will recommend his office to all of my veteran friends.
Marybeth Kappenberg, Briarwood, NY
First of all, I just wanted to thank you so much for the time, and most of all, for the knowledge, concern and support you so generously gave me during our meeting on May 26, 2010. I walked out of your office feeling much more confident and very relieved. I’m not sure how you will take this, but you are an extraordinary human being and the antithesis of the stereotypical lawyer. A usually skeptical person, I trusted you from the moment I shook your hand! In addition, every member of your staff with whom I came in contact with was courteous, respectful, and helpful. You and your partner have created a very special environment, and you should be commended.
William D’Eredita, Manalapan, NJ
My Dad resided in an assisted living facility for many years. As his personal funds were quickly disappearing, I knew I needed assistance. Mr. Niemann and his staff explained the Medicaid application process thoroughly and accurately. They were diligent in their efforts to expedite the application which was approved by the Monmouth County Board of Social Services. I was extremely happy with the service provided by Mr. Niemann and his staff.
Christopher Collins, New York City, NY
Mr. Niemann and his office successfully handled the filing of a Medicaid application for my Mom. They coordinated all the paperwork and detailed financial requirements requested by the County Board of Social Services. His office was courteous and professional to me and my family throughout the process. They answered our questions and responded back to us in a timely manner. The guidance and advice of Mr. Niemann and his staff is sincerely appreciated.
Craig and Lisa Rose, Beaufort, NC
Prior to her death in 2008, I was my Mom’s Power of Attorney. She moved to North Carolina to live out her final years with me and my family. Previously, she had lived her entire life in New Jersey.
After her death, property in New Jersey left to me and my siblings, was supposed to be sold and divided among us but unfortunately an unhappy sibling refused to cooperate.
After researching attorneys in New Jersey, I hired Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. to represent my interests. I am glad that I did. His office was terrific and advocated forcibly and professionally on my behalf. We were kept informed throughout the entirety of the case and the quality of the work was excellent. While stressful at times, the legal dispute was successfully resolved, the case against me dismissed and I was able to cause the property to be sold and the proceeds distributed.
Mr. Niemann and his very capable associates and paraprofessionals did a competent and thorough job and I recommend them to all who are reading this testimonial.
Rosemary Venta, Ocean, NJ
I hired Fred Niemann and his staff to obtain Medicaid approval for my dad, John Melella. His office was just awesome. They were efficient, friendly and responsive to our matter. My questions were promptly and thoroughly answered. I was very satisfied with their services and the level of professionalism they demonstrated.
John Cocuzza, Manasquan, NJ
I hired Fredrick Niemann to handle a detailed contract case. He was referred to me by a friend. Mr. Niemann and his assistants worked capably and thoroughly on my behalf. I appreciate that they copied me on correspondence and developments important to my case. Mr. Niemann is an impressive and engaging professional who is easy to talk to and quick to understand not just the law of contracts but the practical side of business. I recommend his office highly.
Mike Halsey, Middletown, NJ
I own several small businesses. I’m good at what I do but legal matters and dealing with lawyers and legal issues is stressful. I called Fredrick Niemann and have developed a great relationship with their lawyers and staff. They have reviewed my leases, negotiated the buyout of my former business partner, handled land use problems in a neighboring county and generally have really been there for me. I really like them personally and professionally. If you are a small business owner, give them a call.
Jeraldine Vincitore Freehold, NJ
Mr. Niemann has been a God send to me and my family. He has met with me many, many times with patience, sensitivity and understanding that few people expect from an attorney. My family issues are complex and Mr. Niemann understands what I want to happen to my estate upon my death, especially for my adult incapacitated child and other adult children. He created a special trust for my son. He has followed up with me to help me make decisions without forcing his opinions on me. In the end, he told me, “Jerri, my job is to explain your choices and help you understand the legal effect of those choices.”
He guided me and put me at ease. He wanted me to make decisions that are the right ones for me. I am thankful for Mr. Niemann being my attorney and I recommend him to elderly persons who seek a qualified professional who will treat them with dignity, respect and sensitivity.
Teresa Vincitore, West Paterson, NJ
I join in every word my Mom described about Mr. Niemann. She just raves about him and when she leaves his office she is calm and totally confident in his counsel, wisdom and advice. Our family is blessed with him being my Mom’s protector and confidant.
Frank Mollo, Manchester, NJ
My son is an attorney in New Jersey. I am retired and live in Ocean County, New Jersey about 45 minutes away from my son. I needed a lawyer to look at my estate planning documents including Will, Power of Attorney and Health Care Directive. My son recommended Fredrick Niemann in Freehold, New Jersey, specifically Fredrick P. Niemann. I took his advice and met with Mr. Niemann. I am glad that I did. He is a warm and engaging person. No pretense, no airs about him. I immediately felt at ease and we talked about everything that I wanted to do and accomplish with my estate planning. I felt I could open up to him and tell him what was really important to me. He prepared the documents as we discussed and sent them to me in advance to review and approve. Then he scheduled me for a signature session where my appointment was promptly kept and a friendly, positive staff witnessed all of my documents. My son, the attorney, gave me good advice when he recommended Mr. Niemann.
If you are searching for a special attorney, someone who is experienced, likeable as a person and professional, call Mr. Niemann. I felt good about my choice.
Patricia H., Seaside Heights, NJ
This year, our municipality tripled our assessments. We own a business and rental income property and faced a dramatic tax increase. A local realtor referred us to Fredrick Niemann. An attorney immediately filed a tax appeal and explained to us our best strategy and the legal principals to be followed for a lower tax assessment. We were kept fully informed about the progress of our appeal and he included us in negotiations with the municipality. I’m pleased to report that we settled our appeal in a favorable and cost-effective manner. We were very satisfied with our legal representation.
Anthony Fierro, Howell, NJ
Strong, confident, no nonsense. That was my Fredrick Niemann lawyer when I needed representation in a motor vehicle, municipal court case. My attorney, Ms. Bonnie Wright, was on top of everything. I left the court room satisfied with the outcome and extremely pleased I had selected Fredrick Niemann.
Mary Layton, Farmingdale, NJ
Early Dementia, Alzheimer’s. My Mom’s health deteriorated to the point she required full-time care. She wanted to live at home, but required regular help with the essentials of daily living (i.e. dressing, bathing, etc.). As her caregiver daughter, the responsibilities fell on me to figure out what to do. Thank goodness for Fredrick Niemann and Mr. Niemann.
He met with me and explained all of my options for my mom, from at home/community care, assisted living, state, county and local programs for the elderly, financial eligibility for benefits, Medicaid qualification, pharmaceutical assistance, utility aid, Medicare and Veteran’s benefits, etc. While I felt overwhelmed by it all, Mr. Niemann clearly was in control of what could be done for Mom. We engaged him to make applications for subsidized at-home care and assistance through available grant programs and as part of his services to us, he is counseling us on a reverse mortgage, income and financial products to enhance Mom’s monthly income and to reduce her expenses. Mom would tell me to let Mr. Niemann make all the decisions although I am her Power of Attorney. I value so much his confident and generally caring manner. If you’re trying to help your Mom, Dad or family member deal with a life changing health condition, call Fredrick Niemann. I’m glad I did and so is Mom.
Cecelia Lamicella, Freehold, NJ

Ralph Cafaro, Manalapan, NJ
During a difficult period in my life, I called upon Fredrick Niemann to help me as executor to my father’s estate. Mr. Niemann stayed with me every step of the way. He is very professional in his manner and dealings, not only with me but with the attorneys, law firms, creditors and others involved in the probate of my father’s estate. I am very satisfied with his services.
Ruth Leibowitz, Manalapan, NJ
I am 86 years old, a widow and live in Manalapan, New Jersey. I cannot say enough about the caring, kind and compassionate staff at Fredrick Niemann. Mrs. Urciuoli always takes my calls and knows me by my first name. She is patient and concerned about me and my welfare. She has even called to wish me happy holidays and check on my health. Fredrick Niemann is a special law firm.
Robert Newell, Raleigh, NC
My aunt is 80 years old and a widow. She’s in good health and lives alone. My cousin and I are very close to her, but I live in North Carolina and my cousin in California. That makes it hard for us to help her as much as we would like to. She wanted to do some estate planning and asked us to help her find an elder law attorney. I did some homework and research and after many inquires, found Mr. Niemann. He came recommended to me by several sources. Mr. Niemann was the perfect match for my aunt. He demonstrated a kindness and sensitivity that made us feel welcomed and comfortable. He met with us right away and was caring and patient with my aunt and answered all of our questions. He even called my aunt to make sure she was following up on his advice. Mr. Niemann offered us ideas and solutions we hadn’t even thought of. We very much appreciated that. My aunt truly values having Mr. Niemann as her attorney. So do I.
Erik Hove, Manalapan, NJ
Working with Fredrick Niemann over the years has been a pleasure for me. They have been professional all the way. Their entire staff of attorneys, paralegals, secretaries and support staff always make me feel comfortable.

Mrs. Bonnie Kanofsky, Freehold, NJ
Mr. Hanlon represented me in a serious personal injury matter involving a car accident. He was accessible, patient and very much engaged in my case. He is a true professional. He also gave me the personal time and attention needed to make informed decisions about what was best for me. I really appreciated that.
Constantine (Gus) Makris, Brick, NJ
My attorney at Fredrick Niemann cares about me as a person, not just as a case. He is sincere in his interest and often guides me to think of the “big picture”. I think of him as a friend and a “wise counselor”.
Esther Dice, Freehold, NJ
Fredrick Niemann represented me in my house closing. Their real estate staff was consistently accessible and responsive to my questions, needs and concerns. Buying a home is stressful, but Fredrick Niemann made the process orderly and understandable.
Carmela Riccelli, Marlboro, NJ
Fredrick Niemann represented me in the purchase of my business, a Ladies Workout Express. This was my first time buying a business and it was very stressful for me, but Mr. Niemann kept me calm and focused. He was my counselor and advisor and I appreciated the wisdom of his experience. Today I am a proud business owner.
Nick Alfano, Morganville, NJ
I knew I needed an attorney, but could I afford one? Would he or she be experienced and someone I could trust and talk to openly and in confidence?
I was referred to Fredrick Niemann. I was warmly greeted and my appointment promptly kept. I was given all the time I needed to ask questions and talk about my needs and concerns. I was quoted a fee that was appropriate and reasonable for my matter. My attorney gave me answers and advice. He was a counselor at law and in life. Calling Fredrick Niemann was the right decision.
Josephine Pysniak, Woodbridge, NJ
I didn’t know who to turn to for legal advice. There are so many lawyers, but who was the right one for me? I wanted someone who would listen to me and someone I could afford. I knew I couldn’t afford to be without an attorney and then I remembered an old cliché…”you get what you pay for”. But there can be a difference between high price and high value. With Fredrick Niemann, I got a terrific attorney who really worked with me. He was with me every step of the way. His fees were fair and our interpersonal relationship great. I would recommend Fredrick Niemann to anyone who wants a caring attorney.
