    The Always come Through

    Unfortunately I have had to use the services of Micheal J Palumbo twice for speeding infractions and both times, my dealings were professional and he is very knowledgeable. Everything was taken care of everything always keeping me informed in the process. I had even forgotten about a court date until they emailed that all had been resolved and i was found NOT Guilty. I refer Michael Palumbo to my friends and highly recommend.

    TEAM PALUMBO FOR THE WIN!

    I am in the TLC business and my license is extremely important to me. I hired Mr. Palumbo firm to take care of a ticket for me. Its was a Red light ticket on Queens Blvd. I was very worried, but thanks to Mr. Palumbo firm the results came back as dismissed and I was so happy.!!! Everyone that I spoke to at the firm were very nice people, I also spoke to Mr.Palumbo himself, very nice guy. Worth every penny!!! Highly recommended!!!!!

    A great lawyer

    Mr. Palumbo was very professional, honest, and trustworthy . He defended me vigorously in court. I would definitely hire him again if needed and i will also refer him to anyone who needs a good lawyer.

    Great work!

    I am very happy! They got me a plea down from 75 in a 55 to a non moving violation. I would have lost my licence and my job thank you!

    citation in staten island ny

    honestly what made me go with michael j polumbo were the reviews that i read ,to start of iam very disappointed with his experience i received a citation in staten island for a cell phone ticket about 4 months ago ,they claim that staten island has the worst court system and hard to win cases i agree with that they took my case to court after 4 months not only i was found guilty but iam stuck with points for more then a year honestly i dont care about the verdict the main reason why i hired mr polumbo was for my insurance rates they didnt even delay the case they claim that they got a better judge and a better chance to win the case, what i would do is delay the case as far as possible then worry about the judge i made a mistake i shouldve plead guilty and save myself $535.00

    Michael J Palumbo’s response: “This review could not be more disingenuous, false and dastardly. He should be ashamed of himself for writing it. However,, since he posted it everyone can benefit from it as a cautionary tale of why you should never try to defend a traffic ticket by yourself. By reading this you are going to greatly benefit from this past client's mistake and mishandling of this ticket. What this past client DOES NOT tell you is that by the time he had come to us he had already grossly mishandled his case. He leaves out the part that he was so negligent in dealing with this matter that he had gotten his license suspended for failing to appear in court. However, before that he burnt his 1 free adjournment by accepting a 1 month adjournment. We would have never accepted such a short date. In other words, this is what he did - he plead "not guilty" and they sent him a court date. He had it adjourned a whopping month (which was his only adjournment of right), and then he failed to appear in court. His license was then suspended and he went to the court and did not know what he needed to do in order to get his license un-suspended. So he got the case back on the calendar without un-suspending his license. He calls us at 3:00 the DAY BEFORE the 8:30 a.m. hearing date, and we were still able to get his personal court appearance waived, go to court for him, and do the job for him. The only thing he states is true is that the Staten Island court is horrific. When we appeared in court the next day we had no leverage because he had already ignorantly burned his 1 free adjournment by getting it adjourned a mere month and gotten himself suspended by then failing to appear. Consequently, we had 2 choices (1) get the case adjourned another 10 months WITHOUT having his suspension lifted, or (2) doing the trial that day and resolving the case and his suspension. Obviously, we acted in his best interests and did the trial. Had he come to us when he had first received the ticket none of this would have happened. We always get longer adjourn dates than 1 month on the first date. Then, on a second date when we request an adjournment if they say no we can take no action and post a small bond for another date. In this case his ticket was already bonded (he had did that himself), AND he was suspended (again through no fault of ours). We would have delayed this case at least a year, he would not have gotten suspended, and whether or not he would have been convicted is anyone's guess. However, risk of loss is always on the client, not the law firm. We gave this client a yeoman's service. He called us a mere 17 1/2 hours prior to his court appearance and we were able to service him without charging him a premium for the rush we had to put on the job and the 11th hour rescheduling of our attorneys going to court the next day. By the next day his license suspension was lifted. Further, he was consulted on everything that I expressed here. We told him that it was highly unlikely we could get another date without his license remaining suspended due to the corner that he himself had painted him into. He understood exactly what he had done to himself and could not have been happier that we were going to resolve his suspension and case. He knew that there was a chance he was going to be found guilty and he even admitted that the actual verdict was secondary to just being able to legally drive again. This review cannot be more false and dastardly, and he should be ashamed of himself for writing it.”

    Palumbo Review

    Michael's office did a great job, they dismissed my ticket in NYC, which with new laws brings severe penalties if found guilty. Due to the way the system is set up in NYC, you're either guilty or not, there is no room to negotiate.
    The chances of winning are tough and Michael was able to do so

    I definitely recommend his services, money was definitely worth it!!

    Failure to move over for an emergency vehicle violation

    Was traveling eastbound on I84 in the Town of Patterson, Putman County, NY. I came around a curve and saw a New York State Police car on the side of the road with his emergency lights flashing. There was no one in front or behind him, he was sitting alone. I had enough time to slow down and pull over a little before I passed him. 30 seconds later he was in my rear view, pulling me over and issued me a failure to move over ticket. Did not pull fully over to the left lane. This was the first time I have been pulled over in 25 years. Thanks to Michael Palumbo and his team my three point moving violation was reduced to a zero point ticket.

    Definitely earned their fee

    I am very pleased with the responsiveness and attention to detail that the Attorneys at Michael Palumbo's office provided. With great effort the cases were resolved. One dismissed and the others reduced. I would definitely recommend their services.

    Michael Palumbo Gets speeding Ticket Reduced to Parking Violation!

    Michael Palumbo and firm was hired to represent me in three serious traffic violations that occurred in a three month span. On Monday he got my first 4 point speeding ticket reduced to a parking violation. I am under 21 and all my tickets would put 10 points on my license and I would have hefty fines, increase in insurance and other NYS penalties. Mr. Palumbo and as his staff follow-up without prompting, are extremely knowledgable, know all the town courts and are trustworthy. He is worth every penny!

    He rocks!

    I have no idea how he pulled it off (in Manhattan, the black hole of tickets) but he got two violations dismissed. It was simple, I paid the fee and they did the rest, I sat back and relaxed while they did the work. Awesome job!!
