A Lawyer Who Is Of The
People, For The People
My name is Ernest A. Aponte. I have practiced law in New Jersey for nearly two decades. Before pursuing a law degree, I spent 15 years as a social worker and investigator for the state. My “real-world” experience gives me a unique and well-rounded perspective in guiding people in my community through the legal system.

Guiding People Through Municipal Court Issues, Bankruptcy And DUI
Early in my legal career, I was employed as both a municipal public defender and a municipal prosecutor. This experience, along with my time in private practice, allowed me to develop a network of strong relationships in the legal community. By leveraging these relationships, I take advantage of the accumulated knowledge and experience of my colleagues to provide a strong representation for my clients. Over my career, I have helped hundreds of clients with criminal cases, landlord-tenant issues, bankruptcy filings, DUI charges and other municipal court issues.
To Get Justice, You Need Someone Like Me
As a blue collar attorney who grew up in a single-parent home in subsidized housing, I pride myself on treating everyone with the dignity and respect they deserve. My life has exposed me to people from all walks of life and I understand their struggles. Before becoming a lawyer, I worked as a social worker for the state for many years. After getting my law degree, I worked as both a public defender and a prosecutor before starting my own practice. These experiences give me a deep understanding of the legal system, the needs of people in my community and how to get justice for my clients.
A Humble Attorney Fighting Tenaciously For My Clients
The legal community expects a certain level of politeness and civility from the attorneys and legal professionals who work in the courts. I am fully capable of following this code of behavior. However, when I run into implicit or explicit bias or racism against my client, I do not let it go. I will stand up to opposing counsel, judges or anyone else who would stand in the way of my client getting fair and equal treatment under the law. My dedication to my clients is unwavering; I pride myself on building strong client relationships and never backing down from a challenge.
