A few months ago, I got caught in a speed trap coming off of exit 8 of IT-287. I was extremely distraught since I also received a cell phone ticket in NYC from a year ago. Thus, I was facing a possible license suspension on top of the additional driver responsibility penalty.
I did some searching on the internet and called several traffic lawyers. I always spoke with some assistant that didn't know anything. Not to mention that their rates were around 50 percent higher than what Michael was asking for. When I called Michael's office, he personally answered the phone and the calm in his voice immediately put me at ease.
I went in for a consultation on the same day and he walked me through every step of the process as well as the nuances of the particular court we were dealing with. He asked a ton of questions to familiarize himself with my situation and gave me the best and worst case scenarios as is mentioned in other reviews.
I received a call soon after my pre-trial conference appointment in which Michael nonchalantly explained to me that he was able to get the best case scenario! My 6-point speeding ticket was downgraded to a zero-point $150 parking ticket! I say nonchalantly because the calmness in his voice didn't waiver and he remained humble; not expecting any praise. This was simply his job and he does it extremely well.

I am very pleased with the resolution Mr. Kramer obtained for me regarding my traffic ticket. He handled everything; I did not even have to Travel to the court after contacting him. He let me know at our initial phone consultation what the best and worst case scenarios could be, and I am pleased that he obtained the best scenario at the end. He put my mind at ease saying he would take care of everything, and he did. We spoke of few days before he was to meet with the prosecutor, he went over everything and I knew what to expect. Of course I was nervous the day he was going to the courthouse for me, but I was surprised I wasn't even more nervous.i absolutely feel this was because he was calm and confident, telling me he was taking care of everything. He called me from the courthouse, let me know what was going on, and followed up with a letter 2 days later confirming the details. I am pleased with the process and would not hesitate again to retain his services.

Michael was very thorough and informative right off the bat. He informed me of the best and worst likely scenarios we were facing under the given township. He went right to work and in a matter of a couple weeks, he had our violation substantially downgraded to avoid any NYS surcharges and an additional 4 violation points! Great to work with - it was a pleasure. Would absolutely work with again!

What I appreciated most about working with Michael Kramer was the feeling I had when he said, "Let me take care of it." Not only did he take care of "it", he took care of "me", and the feelings I was having about a legal circumstance that seemed very beyond my control or understanding.
Michael led me through a process that helped me to feel empowered, as well as informed and truly supported. The questions he asked were always with the intention to simply clarify exactly what we were dealing with from my perspective, and he would always offer the most likely way in which the court would respond, given all of the circumstances. He was clear, kind, and authoritative, and I could also tell that he was highly respected by the judge and the Assistant DA of New York.
Michael also helped me to achieve the best possible outcome from my case, which I am certain was not a guarantee. It was specifically because I was working with him, and he was truly working for me.
I learned just how much legal circumstances can change, alter, and interrupt one's life and well-being, and I am so grateful to have been in the hands of one of the best people I could have had on my side.
I recommend him without reservation.

He is very knowledgeable and trustworthy and he keeps me informed.
I'm glad I hired him to look into my traffic ticket. Though the process is still on but from his responsiveness, and wealth of experience from his years of practice I am confident of a positive outcome.
Lastly his fees and payment arrangement are just perfect for me. I am a relatively new immigrant wary of running foul of the laws of the road around here but it appears one can never be careful enough, he listened to me patiently through my accent, offered me a comparatively pocket-friendly fee and a payment plan which is way much better than any other offers I got.
One more thing, and I think the most important for me, while others I called reinforced my stereotype of cop-lawyer-court symbiotic relationship that parasitically turn into their carrion those who run into some trouble, there was a tinge of EMPATHY in his voice and approach, others sounded exactly like the stereotype I have of lawyers, SHARKS.
Overall, I'm much happy I hired him and I would strongly recommend him.

Mike is incredibly thorough. He kept me on top of every step of the process. He obviously knows his stuuf, and made sure I was fully informed about all aspects of the case. I couldn't think more highly of him !

I employed Mr. Kramer on two different occasions to represent two of my children. On both, I was very pleased with the outcomes. I believe he was able to achieve the very best outcomes under the circumstances of the two different issues. Furthermore, I was impressed by the way Mr. Kramer kept me abreast of each step of the process, and the delicate manner with which he handled the family emotions. I would recommend his services without hesitation.

We have been extremely satisfied with our experiences utilizing Mr. Kramer's legal services. This past year we required his support with two separate incidents, one involving multiple appointments in county court. Mr. Kramer is extremely professional and also personable, explaining the legal processes to us in terms anyone can understand, alleviating our uncertainty and our worries. His experience in the courtroom and with his clients is unparalleled and we were very pleased with our results. We would not hesitate to call upon him again and highly recommend his services to anyone requiring legal help.

I have had the occasion to use Michael Kramer several times. Although he specializes in criminal law , he has unselfishly guided me to the appropriate attorney for other life lawyer needs.
Mr Kramer was kind , considerate , and realistic in defending my rights and my families rights. I also felt his compensation was fairly demonstrated . I would highly recommend Michael Kramer and if I need another lawyer , he will get my call.
