Edward J. Dimon

Criminal Law | Business Law

“We research the issues. We are pragmatic.
We negotiate a cost-effective resolution.”

Founding Principles: At Carluccio, Leone, Dimon, Doyle & Sacks, L.L.C., We direct that our legal advice be grounded upon research, pragmatism and a cost effective resolution.

Experience: I was the First Assistant Prosecutor in Ocean County. I was an Investment Banker at J.P. Morgan, Chase Manhattan Bank and Kidder Peabody. My areas of practice include the following:

Criminal Law: When a client is faced with a criminal charge, from a DWI to Medicare Fraud to a Sexual Assault, a loss is devastating. I work with the prosecutor and the judge on a pragmatic solution which addresses the needs of the client and the government.

Business Sale and Acquisition: Selling your business or separating from your partners is difficult. Buyers utilize the due diligence period to steal your business. Buyers accuse you of fraud to lower the purchase price. I use my extensive financial experience to protect the businessman.

Securities Fraud: Investing in your financial future should not include misrepresentation, unauthorized trading, “churning” the account for commissions, or risky investments not suitable to your investor profile. I have successfully represented investors at FINRA hearings and in direct negotiations with the major brokerage companies. I have recovered monies lost as a result of fraud in securities transactions or lost because the annuity was not suitable for the elderly investor.

Mr. Dimon and his team have proven to be an asset in assisting my family in obtaining the best possible outcome regarding our situation. Mr. Dimon and Amanda have been courteous, sensitive, conscientious of time, and helpful in navigating the legal process. It was a blessing to have Mr. Dimon and his staff as the leaders for our case. We remain indebted to him, and will continue to seek his guidance, knowledge, and expertise in the event any other issues may arise.


Let me take a moment and acknowledge Mr. Dimon and his team for all of their hard work in managing my affairs over the years.  If you need legal advice and work, I recommend you seek out the people at Carluccio, Leone, Dimon, Doyle, and Sacks.  Not only will you get top-notch legal advice you will be treated with respect and consideration.


Mr. Dimon was always prompt in returning my phone calls and, in a pinch, could be reached on weekends and holidays. Due to his being a true gentleman, he always treated me with respect. He gave me clear and sound legal advice with a positive attitude that assuaged my fears. His excellent knowledge of criminal law, extensive legal experience, profound intelligence, integrity and  pragmatic approach enabled him to negotiate a remarkably favorable outcome. I truly don't think anyone could find a better criminal defense attorney.


I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for Amanda Ottavi at CLDDS Law Firm in Toms River, NJ. Amanda has been working diligently on a very important and stressful case for me. Amanda has succeeded in establishing excellent rapport and relationships with various people making decisions regarding my life. She is diligent and dedicated. She believed in me enough to take it one step further and make sure that the people who were reading the paperwork understood what they were looking at. She was respectful of emotions, deadlines and most importantly the law. I don’t think I would have made it through this journey without her. I felt like she was by my side the whole way even if it was via email or phone communication I cannot praise this woman enough for keeping me calm through an extremely stressful time waiting for a decision. More importantly keeping me optimistic that the outcome would be in our favor. More people like Amanda in the world would solve many problems time and time again. Thank you Amanda and God bless you! It is more than apparent how dedicated you are to your profession and CLDDS is truly fortunate to have you on their staff.


With great confidence,  I would reference CLDDS to anyone who has found themselves in a situation where an attorney can help. My experience with Ed and Amanda in my time of need has been met with great professionalism and empathy. They took the time to listen to me, offered advice, and followed through with everything they said they would do. In addition, they also answered emails in a very timely manner, which is rare these days.I thank them very much for the outcome of my case!


Mr. Ed Dimon is a world class attorney. He is a hard worker, who will not give up until victory is won. He fought a hard up hill battle for my family. Ed is approachable, reliable, and knowledgeable. He kept a positive and realistic attitude through the journey. My husband was incarcerated serving a one year sentence. The horrible COVID-19 Pandemic had struck most of NJ prisons. My husband was in one of the prison that had severe  cases of COVID-19. My husband had caught COVID-19 while in the prison system. He was eligible to be released under the NJ Gov guide lines. The prison system did not want to play fair. Therefore, it became a struggle. Ed worked diligently to get my husband released from prison. He had strategically put a plan together and we followed it to the letter. My husband is released from prison is doing well. I'm thankful for Ed Dimon and team. I will always recommend Mr. Ed Dimon


I would not go anywhere but CLDDS for legal assistance.  Anyone I dealt with in the firm was professional and courteous.  Ed Dimon is one of a kind.  He was readily available any time of day answering my many questions and concerns.  He understands his client’s individual needs.  He stayed focus from the first day we met and beyond the time he was our counsel.


At fifty years old and never having had anything to do with the Court system, I found myself in a strange situation. I had no connections or any inside-track into working with a defense lawyer. If my luck was bad with the arrest, it was paid back threefold when I found Ed Dimon, Esq. When I was quite vulnerable, Ed and his assistant, Amanda, went well beyond the rote interactions of a sterile system. They not only worked competently to defend my case, they were also sincerely invested in my humanity and treated me with kindness, clarity, and respect. Ed Dimon is a remarkably capable lawyer and a stand-up guy. He, like Amanda, was helpful, patient, and thorough. I am so grateful to have found him, and I am beyond impressed with the outcome to my case that he delivered. When I felt the world was unfair, Ed was a reminder that good, capable people are out there. If you are like I was, confused and afraid, you can rest assured that you will be in excellent hands with him. I learned a lot, received a fair judgement, and made a friend. Don't be afraid, you will be in terrific hands.


One of the most remarkable things about our experience with Ed Dimon was his caring and concern. He treated us like family and helped keep my son calm as we went through several anxious months and multiple visits to the courts. I was referred to Ed Dimon for legal representation of my son by an attorney friend and right from the beginning of our first meeting, Ed started developing our approach for going to court. Associate Peter Draper and legal secretaries Mary Ann Romano and Nancy Nichols worked with Ed ensuring my son had a solid team diligently working towards the best possible outcome. While finding an attorney to represent you is simple, just look at your mail after you are arrested. Finding a great attorney that will represent you and make certain that your outcome is the best it can be under the circumstances is not so easy. The professionalism and knowledge of the attorneys and staff at Carluccio, Leone, Dimon, Doyle & Sacks, L.L.C., will give you the confidence that you are in good hands!


Mr. Dimon was very helpful in assisting me make a decision. It was quick for me to decide and approach the case amicably. Mr. Dimon’s quick response was helpful and I recommend him very much.
