Attorney Jack Venturi knew from a very young age that he wanted to be a lawyer. He’s made it his life’s mission to fight for the underdog; for people in New Jersey who have ended up in legal trouble due to circumstance, honest mistakes or an unfair system. His confidence comes from a strong intellect and the experience he’s gained in over four decades of practicing law in Middlesex County and the surrounding areas.


To be a great criminal defense attorney, you have to be proficient in the art of dealing with people. It’s important to be able to pick up on the vibes of prosecutors, judges and jurors and respond creatively and insightfully to get the best results for your clients. This is the work Jack Venturi has successfully done for over 40 years and how he’s earned the reputation as a dynamic trial lawyer with a high success rate.
