Prior to picking up my daughter I picked up a bottle of liquor as a gift for a friend and put it in my backpack. I went to my daughters elite private school to pick her up. When I bent over to give her a kiss on her head the bottle fell to the floor in the lobby. I was mortified and we left. Then I got a call from CFS asking many questions. I shut up and called Michael - from that point forward they had to deal with my counsel. The investigation ended and the records are appropriately sealed - thanks to Michael. You will not find a better qualified attorney to help you with CFS. They are monsters with limited qualifications - do not allow your emotions to open your mouth - let Michael speak for you.

Mr. Discioarro is very knowledgeable and supportive. For anybody who needs help in times of depression he is always reachable, always there to help. His positive attitude gives a lot of encouragement to me.

Well here I go, adding to the accolades…Thanks to AVVO and all the great reviews, I’ve found a lawyer who is not only competent but is attentive, personable and considerate.
I turned to Mike after learning that ACS may have a potential case against me (filed by my child’s public school, same people who have known me for several years as a dedicated parent!!!). The initial consultation left no doubt in my mind that Mike would take care of this with utmost dedication and professionalism.
I didn’t have to wait long to find them knocking on my door and harassing my son and I. The nightmare of their investigation continued for a few weeks, during which Mike was by my side every step of the way. His availability to answer questions via phone or text was very comforting and I sincerely felt protected.
ACS opened a case on me at the end of March…Here we are in the beginning of May and it has been unfounded.
If you ever need protection from ACS -Mr. Discioarro is (without a doubt!!!) the only person to turn to!

I was wrongfully charged with DUI one night double parked in front of my house. I fell asleep with the car turned off after waiting an hour for parking and because I worked 14 hours. I was then profiled by the NYPD and wrongfully arrested and charged with DUI. Mike got my misdemeanor DUI charge dropped down to a violation and a fine. He wasn't expensive and he knows what he's doing. He's definitely the guy to hire when you've been charged with a DUI.

I want to write a review about a stand up guy and great attorney, Michael Discioarro. I was involved with a long court case that finally resulted in my favor thanks to Michael's skills, knowledge, and expertise. I'd highly recommend him. I was very happy with the way he treated me, and I was very happy with the results.

If you are being harassed by ACS this is your guy. We met once then it was all by text. Michael always responded to my questions immediately. He was where the buck stopped when we were being unfairly abused by the out of control ACS system and their staff of amateurs who operate with impunity. I only wish I had contacted him immediately. The system takes a while but he got justice for us.

I recently walked into Michael Discioarro’s office in a complete panic because I was the subject of an investigation with ACS. This investigation was based on lies and completely falsified by the anonymous person who "called ACS in good faith". For me, a Mom, who has never even received a speeding ticket or have had any type of allegations brought against me in any way, dealing with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services was completely something new. And let me tell you, quite scary until I met Michael. Instantly upon meeting him, I was confident that he had the experience and dedication to help me fight the allegations against me. I knew after he made the first phone call to the case worker, my four year old daughter and I would no longer be intimidated or threatened by ACS. Michael was available to me via phone and text 24 hours a day. He always answered and/or responded within seconds of me reaching out to him. He advised me through the whole process and explained each and every step ACS would take before they even took it. Within a couple of weeks of hiring Michael, the allegations against me were found to be “unsubstantiated allegations”. I didn’t need the certified letter from ACS to calm me down because I had Michael with me 100% of the way making me feel better. As a parent, having your child threatened is the worst feeling in the world. Knowing that there is someone like Michael Discioarro available to help you through it is a comfort. His commitment to defending you is amazing! I hope the next time I see Michael is for a personal reason and not for a nightmare like I just lived through!! If you are looking for someone to represent you, this is definitely your guy!! Best of luck!

Parole said I could live with my wife when my son was born because of an alleged sex offense. I hired mr discioarro and he got this whole situation overturned. He's not only good but great at the law, he's my number one option.

I was arrested over 3 years ago for DUI. Hired Attorney Michael Discioarro about 1 day after my arrest, as soon as he was available to meet me. Spent over 2 years in court with Attorney Discioarro. Finally got a lessened charge of DWAI misdemeanor not a felony. He is an excellent Attorney, well known in the courthouse, always ends up knowing the other Attorneys in the courthouse everytime I had to appear. He knows the process and the system really well. He has probably dealt with hundreds of DUI cases. When I first got arrested I was afraid, after dealing with Attorney Discioarro, it became clear to me that it's just all one huge process and hundreds if not thousands of people go through this experience. So I didn't feel so much like a big time loser or criminal. Anyway, I learned my lesson. I no longer drive unless it's work related. Socially, I just take subways, buses or cabs. It's not right to drink and drive. If you don't care about yourself, at least care about other people's lives, especially children that you could potentially hurt by drinking and driving. Thanks for everything Attorney Michael Discioarro!
