RICKARDS WINS PARDON FOR CLIENT FROM GOVERNOR CHRISTIE
Governor Christ Christie, in one of his last acts in public office, has granted a pardon application filed by Jordan B. Rickards on behalf of a client.
The client had suffered from a serious substance abuse addiction in the 1980s and 1990s, and accumulated too many convictions to be eligible for an expungement. He worked hard to beat his habit, started a family, put himself through technical school, and advanced in the aerospace engineering field, helping to design components for GPS satellites and the JDAM bombs used by the United States military.
What They Are Saying About Us
Jordan is a lawyer who understands that clients are coming into him with major challenges. Jordan pitched a perfect game when I asked him to throw a no-hitter. He was able to help calm down the pizzaz from my incident and put together a game-plan to help me. He secured a way to help keep my record clean and was transparent and caring for each step of the way. He would not hesitate to spend a few extra minutes getting to know me as a client, both because it would help him get a sense of me and the case, but also because I believe Jordan is a good human being. Bring your quarrels, your issues, your drama to him; for Jordan was a wizard throughout my case, and I can imagine countless others before and after mine.
Jordan is both extremely knowledgeable and informative. He is personable in a way that he is realistic yet calming. He sets the expectation and then fulfills the goal.
