I am a lawyer who practices in New York. However, I do not practice criminal law. So, when I have a client who has a criminal case, I want him or her to work with the best possible criminal defense attorney. Experience has shown me that is Andrew Stengel. He is particularly skillful in handling sex crimes, DWI, larceny and assault cases. But I recommend Andrew for any and every criminal matter. The clients who he has represented with me rave about his knowledge, strategy and success in their cases. Andrew has my highest possible recommendation as a criminal defense lawyer.Jan 16, 2019
I hired Andrew to defend me against a DWI charge in New York City. There is no better DWI attorney in New York. I refused a breathalyzer and due to his work he got the case completely dismissed. I don’t mean an ACD—I mean dismissed in court. Andrew is aggressive, experienced and knowledgeable. He went above and beyond and saved me from a criminal conviction. I give Andrew my highest recommendation.Jul 16, 2018
My first impression of Andrew left me completely at ease, so much so that I cancelled my appointments with other potential attorneys. He is confident, intelligent, supportive and very personable. I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with. I was charged with larceny, and he had my case dismissed and sealed, which is exactly what we were aiming for. This whole process was a breeze thanks to Andrew. He has my highest recommendation.Sep 26, 2017
I was facing a violent felony for assault with a 3-year mandatory minimum sentence. Andrew got the case completely dismissed. Andrew is swift, professional, sincere and a resourceful attorney. He was always available to me to answer questions or discuss my case. He was honest from the beginning and told me the possible and likely outcomes. I highly recommend that hire Andrew for assault or any other crimes.Feb 26, 2017
I hired Andrew to handle a matter that required the ultimate in discretion. He was able to resolve the matter without any criminal or civil action taken.
