Harold Dee and his staff made it worth the money I paid to have them represent me on a over 20 MPH speeding ticket. The ticket was reduced and I now have to only pay a fine NO points. Not once did I have to take a day off or waste any time. Harold Dee handled everything from A-Z.
I couldn't be happier than the representation that I received from the attorneys at Harold Dee Attorney at Law in Mount Kisco, NY. My 19 year old daughter was returning to Marist when she was pulled over along with three other cars in Patterson, NY. She received two tickets and a massive fine. I spoke with Harold Dee who listened to the circumstances and patiently explained our options. We did not have to make the trip to Patterson to go to court. Harold Dee and his son appeared for us. They successfully represented my daughter and settled the tickets with no points, no reporting to the DMV, and a minimum fine! I hate to imagine what we would have faced if we went to court on our own! Harold, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! I would highly recommend this law firm and will be the first place I turn for any future legal issues!
Bay Shore, New York
He was very attentive to my concerns and relieved a lot of the stress associated with my speeding ticket. Reliable, easy to get ahold of, professional, knowledgeable, and personable. Can't beat that.
Got caught speeding 80 in a 45 - 8 points. Harold managed to get the charge reduced to 2 points "ignoring a Traffic Control Device"
Very impressed and satisfied.
Mr. Dee is an informed, professional and courteous attorney who handled my case quickly while keeping me informed of progress every step of the way. I would highly recommend him for any of your personnel and professional legal requirements.
I engaged Harold Dee to act in my behalf in a traffic matter. Based on his excellent advice, the matter was resolved to my satisfaction. I was very pleased with the way this matter was handled and with the outcome.
I got a speeding ticket on Henry Hudson Pkwy going north before the bridge. I was recommended to consult with Mr. Dee because he would take into consideration the unusual facts of my being ticketed. He did and i was cleared.
female trooper ticketed me for a 94 in a 65 and an unsafe lane change, both fraudulent. Put me at risk for 11 points, insurance increase and possible suspended license. I researched a handful of attorneys and I am so appreciative and lucky I choose the firm of Harold Dee. From beginning to end their services are blue ribbon all the way! End result was 2 points...2 points!!! Jr. hit a friggin grand slam and saved me. I am very appreciative... Very.
I would be amiss if I did not first express my satisfaction with the entire AVVO website; the site represents exactly what the legal community should be doing to encourage the access of justice and legal assistance in the new digital world. With that being said, I was referred to the Avvo website by an Attorney who practices within my field, the property casualty insurance industry. He explained that it is the BEST way to find local attorneys whom's practice is pertinent to your legal needs,etc., especially for matters of traffic Court.
I must also say that I was generally impressed by all of the Attorneys who participated in my original post, as they all had very good insight and I appreciated the their commentary.
When choosing Attorney Harold Dee, my decision was based upon his STELLAR reviews and reputation within the Avvo community, as well as the unique benefit that HE would actually be the one representing me, and not just a "staff counsel". His communications prior to retainer were of a personal manner, and he actually respected my layman attempt to describe the issues pertaining to my situation and the possible remedies available to me.
Due to my profession, I am in contact with Attorneys on a day by day basis, as much of my client base are of the legal community, so my perspective is based on a rather professional experience with counsel as opposed to the typical limited experience that the average person may have.
As of such, my realization that Attorney Dee was of the utmost professional and competent pedigree was rendered promptly, and was completely impressed by him. He was very detailed on issues that were of concern to me, he understood the inherent financial concerns that are relating to any traffic court matter, and assured me that he would consider the expenses when conducting himself in Court to minimize such.
Allow me to address an issue common to the client attorney "relationship"; it is common that an Attorney plays a "salesman" role early on, prior to executing the contract. However, this is typically followed by a "switch" to most communications being conducted between the client and the attorney's paralegal, staff counsel, etc. I actually expected this!
However, Attorney Harold Dee surprised me again here, as upon executing the agreement of representation and paying the relating fee, he did not "suddenly become extremely busy, unexpected summary judgement trial work, "not available", etc.", but rather, continued through out the ENTIRE process to communicate DIRECTLY with me, calling him more than I was ever calling him! I must say, throughout the entire span of his representation, I had not spoken to a single member of his staff; every single communication was directly with Attorney Dee.
Now, as I am in my early 30s, I am very accustomed to communicating via text/email, etc., while I also communicate with Attorneys all day and realize that they commonly lack a shared interest in "texting and emailing". Again, Attorney Harold Dee surprised me again, and was completely prompt and receptive to my various text messages, emails, etc. This was a huge plus, as he seemed to enter right into realm and responded very well to this method.
While communicating with him, I never felt rushed nor like I was wasting him time, actually much of the opposite. He is a GREAT communicator.
Attorney Harold Dee was so professional regarding communication, that he actually took the time to call me personally every day we had court, to "remind me that Court was at 5:30pm today"! Never a call from his office staff, or even the requirement for me to remind my Attorney, he actually made efforts to ensure that I was aware of all Court dates. And, although the prosecutor was "new" to the Court, and none of the Attorneys had a prior rapport with him, Attorney Dee was able to eventually convince the Prosecutor to agree to our "plea offer". HE DID GREAT, AND I WALKED OUT WITH ONLY A $150 COURT FEE!
My son received a speeding ticket, a lane chage ticket and a failure to signal ticket (total 11 points) and was in severe jeopardy of having his license suspended in NY. Also, he had moved away for the summer and was not available to go to court. I hired Harold Dee to represent him in his absense and the charges were negotiated down to one infraction of failure to obey a traffic control device (2 points). Paying the substantially reduced fine was well worth avoiding the NY suspension and assessment fees and insurance surcharges. When my son returns to the area he will have to be extra cautious while driving. Attorney Dee is Highly Recommended!
