I've had an excellent experience working with Powell & Roman in Old Bridge on various jobs from reviewing my company's franchise paperwork, to checking our home purchase agreement, and even completing the re-adoption of our son. From the lawyers to the staff, everyone has always been very responsive, professional, reliable, and courteous. To sum it all up, they help me sleep better at night.


After a series of disappointing experiences with other attorneys, I was delighted to find Bill Kugelman. He is an incredibly knowledgeable business attorney and has assisted me in a variety of endeavors. Most recently he created a shareholder agreement for a new company that I established, which required several months of negotiations with the shareholders. He was there every step of the way to explain exactly what the various provisions meant and why they were included. He explained the places we could compromise, and was firm on the places we shouldn't. I felt that he was always working in our best interests and was also able to explain the legalese in a way that my entire team and the other shareholders could understand.
He was patient throughout the process, responsive and always a pleasure to speak with.
He has also assisted me with other business matters, including attempts to collect payments and disputes with shareholders in another company. In all cases, Bill was thorough in advising me of my options and the pros and cons of each. I appreciate Bill's work ethics, his wealth of knowledge and the way he takes the time to answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend Bill to anyone in need of legal assistance in their business.


Yeugenia was very responsive and professional from the first phone call to present as she handled my divorce. She listens well and is very knowledgeable, and provided solid advice and guidance in helping me make my decisions. She is what you would look for in an attorney that looks after your best interest and wellbeing first and throughout the entire process. I highly recommend her.


I've worked with Bill on a number of business issues and he has impressed me each time with his knowledge, patience and thoroughness. He created and negotiated the shareholder agreement for our new business venture, working with us to come to amenable terms for all four shareholders. He has also worked with us on Terms of Service documentation as well as advised us on issues of trademarks and patents.
Bill is easy to work with and always takes time to discuss our questions and concerns. He has an incredible wealth of knowledge when it comes to issues affecting businesses and I appreciate that he takes time to educate me and make sure I understand how things will impact my business. I trust my business's legal matters to Bill and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney.

Going through a divorce is one of the toughest challenges anyone could ever face. There are so many emotions involved. I didn't know whom to turn to, what my next steps would be and how the final outcome would play out. Thank goodness I had an AMAZING attorney on my side. Ms. Samardin was very knowledgeable, sincere and more importantly, very empathetic. Divorce is NOT an easy step! She held my hand every step of the way. She answered all my questions, never became frustrated, even when I repeatedly asked the same questions over and over again. In the end, the outcome was exactly how she predicted. I truly don't know how I would have made it through this rough time without her. She is the best lawyer!


Ms. Samardin assisted me in the State of NY with a family court matter for child support/visitation proceedings. She was excellent at providing me the results I expected and coming to a mutual agreement with the other party involved. She was sensitive to my needs, was available to answer questions, and timely responded. Maintained herself in an ethical manner at all times and was genuinely looking out for my best interests which gave me a high level of comfort during a stressful time in my life. Would definitely recommend for future representation.


Jose is very responsive. He takes the time to explain things to you thoroughly. He is very knowledgable but also willing to do the necessary research when the need arises. Jose provides a calming confidence that is nice to get from your attorney when dealing with troublesome topics. Jose will be the first attorney I turn to regardless of the topic.

Jose handled our needs quickly and efficiently, with an eye for detail. His calm demeanor and professionalism were evident from start to finish. I have full confidence in Jose and his staff and intend to utilize Powell & Román for any and all future endeavors. I would, and will, recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal services.

Jose drew up my will and made sure I was perfectly at ease with every part of it. He answered all my questions with patience and confidence. My wife came with me to his office with a list of questions and Jose took the time to answer every one them fully and with great care. We were both very pleased with the results. We have already recommended his services.

I highly recommend Yeugina she won my case when others turned me away. I enjoyed working with her on my case cause she showed that she truly cared. She did not nickel and dime me with hidden fees or phone call time. If you're looking for a top notch lawyer she is the one.


I am extremely impressed with the legal knowledge and professionalism that Powell & Roman demonstrate on a continuous basis. Bill Kugelman’s understanding of franchise law has been a huge benefit to our Stewart’s franchise program over the past 2 years. Bill provides great insight and assistance in real estate law as well as displaying intelligent business legal expertise. We are very happy with our working relationship with Bill and his entire firm and would highly recommend their services.

Yeugenia was recommended to me by a friend and I must say it worked out so well. I was seeking a modification to my child support payment. Yeugenia sat down with me and listened to everything I had to say. She went over all of the details with me and came up with an excellent gameplan to present to the judge. The plan was very successful and we won the case.

Aisha was unbelievably helpful when I pursued a case against my league, after sustaining a preventable injury. She was extremely thorough when researching the components of my case and proved to be extremely knowledgeable in what paths to take to reach a favorable outcome.
She was always available and worked around my schedule, which was a huge help due to my case being time sensitive. Aisha is extremely clever in how she approaches her work and I highly recommend choosing her as your lawyer

I've known Joe, Jose & staff for many years now. The firm is one of my favorite insurance defense firms that my company uses. Joe & Jose are very knowledgeable, trustworthy & professional. Really, they are just great guys & so easy to talk to & work with. I would recommend this firm to anyone looking for insurance defense attorneys, since that is how I know them, but I am sure they do a fabulous job in their other areas of practice as well.

My experience with Aisha was very satisfactory. I was very nervous about the 'lawsuit' but Aisha was able to put my mind at rest.


Thank you for all your attention with us... Very professional work, especially on your communication with us either by phone or letters. I will not hesitate to recommend Powell & Roman to anyone. A very special thanks to Aisha Farraj.


The overall experience was spectacularly positive. The level of professionalism, follow-through, and thoughtfulness was much greater than I ever expected. I have tremendous amount of respect and appreciation for Bill Kugelman, and will not hesitate to recommend the services of Bill and this firm to others. Thank you!
