I've never gotten into any kind of trouble before nor did I ever need a lawyer. Then one day I was accused of a sex crime. Since I am a teacher I realized I needed a lawyer. Not just any lawyer but one that would get me out of trouble and would save my career. I called a few lawyers and wasn’t impressed. Then I met Andrew and I hired him immediately. He developed a case strategy and in the end, thanks to Andrew, I was able to avoid a criminal record or counseling, which would have ended my career. During my case. I would call Andrew and constantly ask questions. He answered all of my questions always making sure that I was comfortable with the answers. Andrew was always available to me and answered every question at every step of the way. Andrew cared for me not only as a lawyer but like a good friend. I hope that I won't need Andrew again, but I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer who is honest and a friend.

Andrew is smart, aggressive and diligent, exactly what you need in a criminal defense attorney. I am a professional who holds licensure in multiple states. I was facing a potential felony and Andrew ultimately got the charges entirely dismissed and sealed. He explained the process to me in clear and simple terms at every step of the way. I highly recommend him without any reservation in for any and every criminal charge.

  I never have been in trouble before and needed representation for a misdemeanor. I contacted many lawyers about my case and Mr. Stengel provided me with answers to my questions right over the phone. His aggressive representation not only got my case dismissed but sealed as well. Very pleased with the outcome and I would highly recommend his services.

I hired Mrs. Dawson to represent me as an attorney for a Family Court case that turned Criminal. This case was for a same sex relationship. As much as we would like to think same sex people are not discriminated in the court system (I unfortunately felt a small amount of prejudice). It was hard calling around the lawyers explaining the situation and receiving price quotes. I was connected with Mrs Dawson through thumbtack thinking it would make the process of finding an attorney less grouling. If you have any doubt on hiring Mrs Dawson to represent you, stop now and hire her. she is amazing! A true professional and very knowledgable with the court system and laws. She made my case a breeze and I also felt she was on my side without prejudice & judgement of who I am. Made very confident and comfortable. She had just the right balance of compassion and professionalism and was able to "tell it like it is" including all of my options and rights I had moving forward in court. After hiring her my case moved along quickly and she took complete charge. I cannot say enough good things about my experience dealing with Mrs Dawson! Her presence makes you feel comfortable and confident. She tells it like it is, makes no false hopes and gets it done for you. She worked hard on my case and made it look like a cynch on her part. I had little to do once I hired her. Her pricing is very fair. I felt I received a lot for my money. Communication was quick and perfect. Thank you Mrs Dawson. If I ever need to use her again, I will 100% and I will also recommend her to friends, family and colleagues 100% I am overly joyful with the outcome of my case and having the chance to work with Mrs Dawson. Some attorneys just try to get things over with as quick as possible and sometimes using methods that can effect you later in life. Mrs Dawson fought for the outcome I received, didn't just wait to see what would happen or take the easiest escape route possible. Truly amazed by this attorneys job done on my case!!

I had been in a car accident, while at work, that was not my fault and was referred to an attorney for help with my lawsuit. The attorney did not do a thing with my case which caused me to experience debt collectors continuously calling me about medical payments that I was told were being taken care of by my attorney but obviously were not. At this point I felt something was going wrong with my case so I contacted Lynn Dawson for help. I could tell after our first conversation that it was an excellent decision. Lynn had requested all my paper work from the previous attorney and after she reviewed it discovered that my workman’s compensation case was a month away from being past the statute of limitations. Lynn was able to get my case rolling right away and had all my medical bills paid within a few months and the phone calls from debt collectors stopped. After Lynn was done working on my workman’s compensation case, she jumped right into the lawsuit against the person who hit me. This case too was wrapped up within a few months as well. The timeline from my accident happening to having someone working on it took a long time due to a previous attorney not doing what they said they would do. During that time I had surgery on my shoulder from the impact of the crash and had to fend off debt collectors daily. I was the one who was the victim but I felt like I was the guilty party. That all stopped though when Lynn Dawson took over my case and I couldn’t have been happier. I have and will recommend her to any of my family and friends.

Lynn Alvey Dawson was everything I hoped for in an attorney. She listened to me carefully and with empathy. She showed me how the law fortified my position. And she brought to bear her experience as a prosecutor to anticipate the other side's approach and win me vindication.

Ira handled a complex case with a high degree of experience and professionalism. Most importantly he explained all of my options thoroughly, efficiently, and with transparency - so that I could ultimately make the best decisions along the way. He was always available for calls and email requests and I only spoke to Ira (unlike many of the bankruptcy mills where you are immediately handed off to an associate or paralegal). I highly recommend his services to anyone seeking hands on legal counsel.

I never hired an attorney but Laura made the process so easy. It was her prompt responsive, she explained everything in detail and held this confindence that gave off this aura of trust. What I most respected about Laura is when she took on my case she quoted me for a price much lower than what the work was worth and she honored the price knowing that she should have charged more. She was the only attorney on thumbtack that was consistent and believed that I could possibly see a positive outcome in my case with all the charges pending against me. If I had to recommend her legal services to anyone for sure she is the woman for the job. Her work speaks for itself, her experience and she’s definitely a people person she never once treated me like I was just another traffic case client and the it’s a plus she’s so very affordable 🤗💕. I didn’t mention she took on my case so short notice and my court appearance happened to fall on her birthday 🍰💪🏾 I guess you can say “NO DAYS OFF” thank you again Laura

Laura researched and studied throughly then handled my extremely complicated cases (from multiple traffic and criminal courts) as if they were her own cases with care and pro guidance. Dismissed and dropped my charges and convictions including default convictions (1+ yr old) saving me about 70% in fines and fees. She also kept calculating my points before and after charges dealing with the prosecutors and even personally contacting the judge's office to make sure I have my driving privilege back after the decisions. Do not look further and contact Laura for your forever attorney.

Ms. Mecklosky is an honest and down to earth person who will analyze your situation and give you the best possible strategy for resolving your dilemma. She understands the court system and how to navigate it for best possible results. Her rates are very fair - she doesn't bill her clients crazy money to keep a fancy law firm address. The best representation you could ask for, and the best possible rates. She helped members of our family with two tough situations. I wouldn't hire anyone else!

I Hired Glen after receiving 3 consecutive tickets from a police officer while I was driving. These tickets would have resulted in numerous points onto my license and potentially thousands of dollars out of my pocket . Glen worked quickly and very efficiently for me- I did not even need to appear in court for my case. Glen was able to get my tickets down to a parking fine with no points on my license; and the fine I ending up having to pay was greatly reduced. I definitely recommend Glen’s services and will use him in the future if need be.

Glenn did an excellent job representing me. I found him to be professional, knowledgeable and thorough in every detail. Hopefully I will never need an attorney to represent me in another criminal case, but if I did I wouldn't hesitate to use Glenn again.

I could not be happier with the counsel and legal advice I received from George Vomvolakis. I’ve never been in trouble with the law, but when I found myself in a tough position George was there to have my back. From start to finish he supported and fought for me until I got the result I wanted and needed for my future. He was always prepared and never once lost control in the courtroom. He always has a plan of attack and will work with you hand in hand to make sure the job gets done. I am 110% satisfied with his professionalism and ability to walk into a room fight for my rights without hesitation. I never once felt judged or ashamed under his counsel. As soon as we met for the first time, he made sure I was comfortable and understood what needed to be done and what needed to be achieved when the time came. If you want someone who is very highly respected in his field, not going to settle for mediocrity, and will fight for you until the very end, I strongly recommend George Vomvolakis. Even though I hope to never find myself in such a position again, I won’t hesitate to give him a call if I need to or refer him to a friend. Thank you George for everything you did for me.

First all I would like to thank George for his expert legal advise and commend his hard working ethics. I never saw myself in a position whereby I needed to represented for defending myself. Things happen in life that can't be explained. Lucky for me meeting George was the best thing that could have happen throught my nightmare. A very calm

Andrew Mancilla saved our business. From incorporation, through expansion, and in the settlement of our first (hopefully last) lawsuit, Andrew has been there for us every step of the way. He's offered us incredible counsel, working tirelessly and always putting our business's needs before his own. When, as a young nightlife company with very little capital, we received a lawsuit demanding damages equal to more than 20x our assets, we were terrified. We thought it would bankrupt us, destroy our business, and leave us penniless. Andrew was reassuring and comforting from day one. Over the following months, he fought tooth and nail for us, calming us in moments of despair and assuring us that justice would prevail. At the end of it all, he secured us a settlement that gave us a fresh start. Our business is back and our company is healthier than ever thanks to him, Bobby, Carla, and the rest of his team. But to us, as incredible as they were as legal counselors, that isn't what makes Andrew and his team the best attorneys in New York. Andrew has a personal connection to his clients. He has become more like a brother to us than a lawyer, he truly believes in our company. He attends our events, he actively promotes us and encourages us to succeed, and has been generous with his time far beyond the call of duty. As our business grows, we will grow with Andrew. If we face trials and tribulations, we will face them with Andrew. We will be forever grateful to his entire team for their dedication to us. So if you need an attorney who is creative, hardworking, and truly passionate about his work, look no further than Andrew Mancilla.

Andrew is a serious, speedy, and effective attorney. I'm sticking with him going forward, and feel I've finally found someone who I can trust and who puts my interests first. I had a wrongful marshall notice at one of my five businesses, he got it cleared the same night, despite having the flu. He then got me the settlement outcome I was looking for and it was only a matter of days from start to finish. I was able to leave behind that stressful situation and get back to work. I love this guy. -Michael Z, NYC entrepreneur

Andrew is an exceptionally skilled attorney. As someone who has known and worked with Andrew for many years I can vouch for his effectiveness as a litigator. Andrew is also one of the hardest workers I know. He gives his all to each and every case and has achieved great outcomes for his clients. It is my pleasure to work so closely with Andrew.

This attorney is the BEST!!! HE HAS SAVED ME FROM CRIMINAL COURT!!! Edward Palermo is the BEST attorney ever. I met Edward for a consultation & because of my situation, I must have been crying for at least half of it. Edward is such a sympathetic kind attorney, He listens without judging & goes out of his way to help his clients. I walked in his office with no hope in a state of extreme shock, confusion, & beyond devastation. But this wonderful altruistic attorney saved me from it all. Ed Palermo truly saved my life at least 2x & saved my naive heart & soul from something so awful that I never would have survived it. He believed my words of truth & my PURELY INNOCENT intentions, in which I foolishly tried to handle a situation myself, in an effort to NOT get a person I cared for in ANY trouble with ANY agencies. Ed believed me, my truth, & saw the truth in my naive eyes. I am a person that has NEVER even gotten detention in school, EVER. So to have been faced with what I was faced with, was beyond anything I could even comprehend or have handled. I was innocent. I am innocent. Ed believed me & worked so hard to do whatever he could to help me. He took me on as his client knowing I didn't have all I needed up front if God Forbid it had went to court. He said I can pay him in payments which were so extremely fair and reasonable. Thank God it didn't go to court. Ed saved me from that & I will be thankful for the rest of my life to Edward Palermo. I feel like he has given me a 2nd chance at life. To this day I still wake up shaking & crying from nightmares from that situation, but then I realize it was just a bad dream & I am ok because Ed Palermo saved my life. He came along with a life jacket literally just in time, when I was drowning in pain & extreme fear-scared to death.Ed always responds even now months later when I happen to see this person around town, & I text Ed terrified/trembling out of fear/flashbacks-Ed always puts me at ease & answers back immediately. Just knowing God Forbid I am in any other situation-that I can get help from Ed, is a gift from God. He is the most loyal dedicated kindhearted attorney that TRULY DOES CARE ABOUT HIS CLIENTS. THANK YOU SO MUCH! His secretary and receptionist is so sweet and kind also. She was so extremely sympathetic and kind to me each time I went to see Edward in his office. She was so reassuring just like Edward and she put me at ease as well. Thank God for this firm! Ed you are the best attorney & I am forever grateful! I am still standing today because of you. Thanks to you I now believe in miracles :) You are my lifesaver & an angel on earth. No matter how many months or years go by, I will never forget what you did for me. Everyday that goes by, I am thankful to you. You really did save my life. Thank you so much Edward Palermo-the world needs more people like you.
