    • I recommend Michael Discioarro.

    Michael was my attorney while I was facing neglect charges. He was able to get all the charges dropped and the case ultimately dismissed. My ACD was immediately sealed instead of me waiting the 6 months period. Which he was able to get for me so I wouldn't face unemployment . Now I have returned to work, and I have Michael to thank for that. He was very professional and knowledgeable about his craft. I could call or text him at anytime about my case and he would respond. Michael is reliable and dependable!!!

    • I recommend Michael Discioarro.

    Mike Discioarro is an exceptional attorney. I had a complex case, which required going to 2 courts, more than a handful of times. He won in both courts for me. His knowledge of law, the systems, personal idiosyncrasies of the DA and exactly how to navigate them, are exemplary. He’s a straight shooter, and will tell it to you like it is. Whether it’s what you want to hear at the time or not, you actually/truthfully/accurately know where you stand at any given moment of the process, and know that you’re in the best hands. He’ll be honest with you regarding the things that are not in his or your control, and he will masterfully whittle the most strategic angles of areas he can affect. He intimately understands the process, judges, DAs (and Assistant DAs) including when and how to reach out (or not) to them. Should you find yourself, as I did, in the unenviable position of requiring such an attorney, I recommend Mike emphatically.

    • I recommend Michael Discioarro.

    I am so glad to have come across Michael Discioarro's number while looking for a lawyer to help us out of a situation we never should have been in. Michael was compassionate, knowledgeable and made it easy to talk to him about what was going on. He took care of everything and handled it promptly. It is such a relief to know that we had someone trustworthy on our side. He answered phone calls, texts and emails in a timely manner and made sure we didn't have to worry about anything. I would absolutely recommend him.

    • I recommend Michael Discioarro.
    • I hired Michael 6-12 months ago.
    • Michael handled my Child Abuse matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    It was the eve of Thanksgiving, and also the anniversary to my fathers passing. But for some unknown reason or understanding. ACS came to my home at 10 past MIDNIGHT, yes at 12:10 A M. As a crew of ACS workers pulled up in a mini van. As they decided that is the most appropriate thing to do, and time to do it. As they Banged and Banged and Banged on all reachable sides to my home. If my home was not gated with cameras in place. They would of eventually broken there way in, due to how hard , forceful and loud there attempts were. As my entire family was sound asleep. We were suddenly awoken in a panic. The very next day, morning as ACS sat parked waiting to create havoc and there kind of fear to a S W F, and to my family as well. But for the fear of unknown. We had to stay put that entire Thanksgiving day, and stay together as a family.. No longer able to go to my dads grave, and not going out to our Church Thanksgiving day dinner. But the next most difficult and hardest thing to over come. Was to find a willing and caring Lawyer on Thanksgiving day. After navigating and searching for a competent and hopeful lawyer to retain. I became very unsure with not much confidence. That I can or will get the right lawyer that I needed. Even though I had not 1, no clue to what I could of done. But understanding that it was a holiday. And after making at least a half dozen calls to ACS lawyers. Not one had the care or motivation to offer and express any willingness to help. Until I called Mr. Discioarro. At first I thought he was angry. Maybe because I had called him right in the middle of a holiday. But then when he asked me when are they coming back. I knew I had found the needed and right lawyer. He then said I will be at your home on Monday, as he said expect me there 30 minuets before ACS is to arrive. Not only did he arrive exactly at the time he said he would. But he arrived and entered my home with such concern, determination and compassion. That I have never experienced that ever before. With a person I never met before. As he sat down at out family dinning room table. He assured me that he will work relentlessly to defend me and my family from any accusations, or to what ever ACS will carelessly try. To falsely try to make a report of or about. And I will say this because he never said like most lawyers, or right away mentioned about the M word. But I will say that Mr. Discioarro is very well worth it, and reasonable. As they say you can't put a price on your child. This is a lawyer that is worth every pennies worth. The pathetic and erroneous falsified calls and reports that anyone can just make. Mr. Discioarro had them all dismissed and all unfounded. What I really liked most about this lawyer, is that he is very stern. But very understanding and compassionate. Plus he is a family man himself. If anyone is being set up, being accused or being harassed by ACS. And I did not know anyone that knew him, or nor did I ever hear about him. But I will vouch and assure you. That Mr. Discioarro is a one of a kind lawyer. Especially to fight for your rights as a parent. And to defend and defeat ACS.

    • I hired Michael 1-6 months ago.
    • Michael handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Michael's initial professionalism was impressive, as a result we retained him instantly for an impending ACS Case. Upon retaining Michael he immediately sent a letter to the ACS Case Worker which I knew helped to prevent the situation from getting out of control.

    I liked that he was responsive with either a phone call or text message, and knew that if it came down to us fighting ACS he would be there for us. With strong faith and Michael we are now pass the worse and look forward to continuing our lives without interference from ACS.

    If you are looking for an excellent attorney who is knowledgeable and has compassion for his clients, please choose Michael. You will not be disappointed.

    • I recommend Michael Discioarro.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.

    A consummate professional from start to finish. Mike took an uncomfortable, unfortunate situation, and got my life back on track. Mike worked his magic, fought vigorously in the courtroom against some unjust railroading. He was able to get all charges down to a mere traffic violation.
    Mike is a genuine good guy , who believed in me and my case, and cared about the outcome. He answered all questions, as well as calmed all fears. I was not afraid to go into the courtroom with Mike at my side.
    Wish we met under different circumstances , I was lucky to have Mike as my lawyer.

    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Michael is an exceptional lawyer. He understands the NYC criminal court system because of his past experience as a Assistant District Attorney. He also understands the NYPD and how they operate. He was very confident from the beginning and knew exactly what to do. Michael was able to get all criminal charges dismissed for my son because of his dedication and commitment to the client. Most of all he is easy to contact and talk to anytime, even by text or email. I did my research when I choose him and I am glad it really paid off.
