Peter Tilem is hands down the attorney you want in your corner. His years spent in the Manhattan DAs office uniquely qualified him as a defense attorney who knows the system and how to navigate it in order to win your case. He knows the law inside and out, makes himself available, thoroughly explains everything, but most importantly, is a gladiator in the arena. I got the sense that he really was in my camp, 100%, like I was even a relative of his. He put his heart and mind into winning my case, and we won. If you hire him, rest assured, that his discipline and diligence will do the same for you.

I used Peter Tilem and Associates for representation in a speeding ticket case. I was driving in upstate NY at 80 mph in a 55 mph zone which carries 6 point penalty.
They exceeded my expectations and reduced that speeding ticket to a zero-point parking violation!
It was a smooth process and the staff did a good job answering and following up on all my concerns. I did not have to appear in court. One of the associates communicated with me throughout the whole process, so it was easy to get a quote, sign-up and to follow up on everything without spending a lot of time to reach the lawyer.
The fee was very reasonable (I called several lawyers before signing up). Do not hesitate to use them, the fee that they charged was worth every penny

Mr. Tilem was courteous, hardworking, early to appointments, (yes) caring, and honest. His office always responded to my questions in a timely fashion.
I had a case related to possession of a loaded magazine, with the number of rounds over the NY limit. The judge I was originally assigned to was unreasonable and even hostile. Mr. Tilem was able to have the case moved to another judge.
I paid a fixed fee for my case, but the first judge caused the number of billable hours to go above the anticipated hours by several times. At my court appearance, the court misplaced my paperwork and we waited for three hours. Despite this, Mr. Tilem didn't charge me extra.
Final result? Mr. Tilem got my case dismissed. Mr. Tilem goes against the negative stereotypes of lawyers. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Peter Tilem. Thank you, Peter!!!

Pete and his associate Jasmine Hernandez represented my brother in a felony case related to a domestic situation. It was a very difficult situation for my brother and the entire family but we found Pete and Jasmine to be supportive, knowledgeable and they negotiated a very good plea bargain which kept my brother out of jail - something we were initially told was next to impossible. He took the time to explain all options and the possible outcomes and we were confident that we made the right decision. Through the process the attorneys were professional and prepared at all the hearings. Pete was honest and direct when he needed to be and through the entire process we felt we had great representation from a respected attorney.

Peter handled an unusual overweight fine for a large load my company was handling. Long story short, on a technical issue the DOT voided our permit and then fined us as if we had NO permit at all. They wrote a ticket in excess of $20,000.00. We were hopeful that Peter could get the ticket knocked down to a reasonable amount. He did even better and got it completely dismissed. Great Job!

Peter Tilem was not the first attorney that I have used but he is by far the best. I came into contact with him when I was in a pretty bad situation and didn't have much hope. Peter Tilem was able to not just lift my spirits but turn around but my case as well. He was able to use his experience and expertise to well exceed my expectations I highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal advice or counsel.
