Robert & Team,

I wanted to sincerely thank you for working on my case and getting a favorable decision for me. It was a long road but both you and your team were efficient, organized and a pleasure to work with.

I can’t thank you enough for your hard work throughout these years. I was hoping I would receive the money before I was 70, and I did LOL! God bless you for working with the state.

I wish you so much success in your future and I certainly would not hesitate to recommend your firm. Your professionalism and follow-through were much appreciated. Please thank your entire team.

I appreciate you, thanks again.

Dear Mark,

You and your wonderful firm provided me serious help at a very low point in my life. Thank you for believing in me and helping me. You guys are seriously unique in caring about individuals that experience unlucky events. I may never return to Green Valley like in the old days, but to have awesome members of that community (You!) still care is just life-affirming. Thank you, Mark.

– Kathleen B.

Dear Lauren Tovinsky and Robert Petruzzelli,

I want to take this moment to formally thank you for the representation and support you provided in connection with winning my Social Security Disability case, and most recently, the expert advice you provided that helped me successfully pass a Continuing Disability Review.

You and your staff were great from the time of our first consultation, submission of disability claim(s), collecting and assembling discovery documents and evidence, through the various appeals and court proceedings and hearings. You took ownership of my case and knew every detail which was evident in our conversations, your briefs and arguments (these, I genuinely enjoyed reading), and at the hearings. It took me a while to learn about and appreciate your upstanding reputation with the Social Security Administration (SSA). I am extremely fortunate to have been your client.

Your staff is extremely detail-oriented and very personable. Every time I called your office, the people at the front desk knew who I was and exactly how to route my call, and on many occasions, were able to access my case and answer questions. They made me feel welcome and provided a sense of security which helped me emotionally.

Carol was wonderful to work with. She always knew the status of my case, encouraged me to provide what seemed like repetitive requests for information by the SSA, and was on top of every deadline. Carol validated my questions and concerns. Carol always returned my voice and e-mail messages. Carol’s professionalism is greatly appreciated.

Danette is an effective and dedicated team member at JS&P. I like her communication style. She always took the time to explain things to me in a direct manner. The process of attaining SSDI was confusing and overwhelming to me. At times I felt like it was impossible (having mental disorders made it seem worse). Danette is patient and kind. I am pleased to have worked with her.

I am grateful that Alfredo worked on my case regarding the collection and organization of my health records. His attention-to-detail put me at ease. During the time he was working on my case there was a policy change at JS&P whereby the clients became responsible for collecting their medical records to save time and money for both the firm and the client. Alfredo led this change and helped me through the transition. He explained how it is easier and faster for me to collect my records, and then send them to Alfredo for inclusion and organization in my case file.

My experience with your firm was awesome. I appreciate your strategic planning and assessment at each step of the process. You are experts at communication and emotional intelligence, which has left a positive impact on me. Everyone at your firm is an excellent communicator, knows their job inside and out, goes above and beyond, has keen due diligence, is very client-driven, and felt like family.

– J. DeVoe

Best law firm in New Jersey! I will never change my mind.

– James K.


I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you and your kindness over the past years of helping me. You are truly a good person and outstanding lawyer. Thanks again and God Bless.

Tell Terry I said thanks too. If someone is hurt, I will surely recommend you guys. Take care and thanks to you both!

Just wanted to send a “thank you” to Mr. Petruzzelli, Danielle Simons and their entire staff for the awesome job in getting my SSDI so quickly. I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work.

Also, a big thank you to Mr. Schwalbe and his team for finally getting my getting my doctors appt approved with the insurance company. You never gave up.

Would highly recommend your law firm!

– Earl H.

I am very appreciative of your efforts in my matter with the Social Security Administration. I have begun the process of sorting out my Medicare coverage and all that goes with that. I will also be asking for back payments from Blue Cross since my Part A Medicare coverage dates back to December 2018. Please thank everyone on your staff that had a part in working on my case. Everyone I spoke with was always helpful and supportive. They were very diligent in carrying out their part in gathering and organizing all of my records.

I am so grateful that Les encouraged me to talk to you about pursuing disability benefits. Throughout the process, while he was alive, Les always told me I was in good hands. I am so thankful to both of you for your guidance, especially for persevering with me and working to achieve a favorable outcome. Thank you!

Somehow, just saying “thank you” doesn’t seem like enough. But I hope you know how much your kindness has meant to me.

I am so sorry this Thank You has been so late in forthcoming. I cannot begin to express my appreciation for all that you and your staff have done for me. It has been seven years and ongoing with my disability case. Needless to say, I wish I could have known and met you sooner, as it has been nothing but heartache and upset every day for me. This by far is not how I planned my life. Thankfully because of you, things have and are finally coming to a closure. I now can somewhat try to live as close to a normal life as possible even though unfortunately my health has continued to decline. I again cannot thank you enough! Also your great staff have answered my questions, gave advice, gotten medical records or answered the phone and said don’t get upset as everything is alright! Thank them again over and over!

Very compassionate bunch of people. Wish I would have known of them before we started this nightmare.

– Kelly S.

They do great work!

– Paul P.

I wanted to send you this note to thank you for all of your efforts and the efforts of your staff on behalf of my husband, Richard. Not only were you able to obtain a financial settlement but you also gave me something so much more, something to hold onto since I first contacted you at the suggestion of your friends and mine, Bill and Barbara L. My future was unsecured, and I was awake most nights thinking about that; but after speaking with you and Mark, I had something secure to hang onto, so that I could rest my mind, knowing that you all were trying to help me; and that peace of mind during those years was priceless!

I have your business card, and I would recommend your practice to anyone in the area in need of your services. I pray for you and the staff every day; your generosity and professionalism in my mind are unsurpassed. As always, thank you all for helping me in my time of trouble.

This is to thank your law firm for all you’ve done with my workers’ compensation case. I want to personally thank Mark Jacobs and Alan Schwalbe, also thanks to all your staff, including Danielle for treating me with professional and courteous consideration.

– Raymond D.

Thank you letter to the attorneys from client

Great group of attorneys! I worked with Mark Jacobs for nine years while he was handling my case. Anytime I need something handled about my case, he is there! I call his secretary Terry and it gets taken care of. Best attorney around!

– Fred I.

The staff is always friendly. When I call to leave a message, I always get a call back the same day. The attorneys are very professional and know what they are talking about. I would recommend my family and friends to any of the attorneys at this law firm. I really appreciate and thank Mr. Jacobs and Mr. Mello, and Ms. Tovinsky for how much time and effort they put into my case.

– Lylla G.

Dear Mr. Petruzzelli,

I wanted to thank you and your office for your assistance with my recent application for SSDI. I apologize for the delay; I wanted to be certain everything was complete and there were no issues. Your last letter gave me the impression that you were confident everything was in order, and in hindsight, I should have trusted your judgment.

I was referred to you by a member of the credit union where my wife works. They were so impressed with your office, they asked to speak to me to give their recommendation. I now understand why.

I was initially reluctant to apply, but when my health deteriorated in February, I recalled our initial phone conversation and your explanation of the process. I’m certain that was the reassurance I needed to proceed.

Your office staff are to be commended. They were pleasant and extremely helpful, and they answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly, whether by phone, email or in person. They even made copies of paperwork for me (when I had only stopped in to let them know I had obtained some paperwork and needed to know what they would need after I made copies). They eased the process which can be, and at times was, overwhelming.

Your help, and that of your office, was invaluable and greatly appreciated. While I, of course, would not discuss the specifics of my case, I will most strongly recommend your office to anyone I know who might benefit from your firm’s assistance.

Again, thank you, and if I can be of assistance in any way, please let me know.

They were professional and at the same time very personable and spoke to me with terminology that I could easily understand. I never waited more than a day for any information I needed or a question answered.

– Denise T.

I can’t say enough good things about this group! My fiance is suffering terribly after a surgery. They got the disability for him he so badly needed. My fiance having a special-needs adult son made his life harder than most. This really eased the burden of his life challenges. Great office staff and great lawyers.

With wishes of good health, happiness and success,

Dear Mark,

Just wanted to give you a little something to express my sincerest appreciation for all of your continued help with workers’ compensation and for your advice when I lost my sweet pup, Maya. I’m truly grateful! I hope you have a Happy Chanukah and a happy healthy New Year!

– Roni Golden

Alan has taken my calls and has helped me when I got into a jam. He dropped everything to get this done. He understands and cares.

– Joe

Alan Schwalbe was my attorney for an injury I sustained at work. I had no idea what to do or where to start. His firm took care of everything. Since I was totally disabled from my injury, my attorney and his partners were able to get me benefits for life. I highly recommend you contact him if you have questions about or need an attorney for any accident, work injury or Social Security benefits.

– Carl D.

Mr. Schwalbe provided prompt, professional service and exceeded expectations. He was diligent and thorough, and he truly cared for my well-being. We had an open dialogue, and he was always available to address any concerns. I believe he got me a fair and just settlement and would recommend him to anyone.

– Bill

A small firm that will take great care in handling your case. Outstanding Social Security attorney with extensive firsthand experience of the inner workings of the SSA. This firm will treat you like family.

– Melissa Furman

Mark Jacobs always made me feel like I was his first priority. He was an excellent attorney and got me all my benefits I was entitled to. I would recommend him to anyone who needed help.
