I was facing some very serious charges. I had two speeding tickets. My first ticket was 92 in a 50 -- in Staten Island! As most people know -- this is a very difficult venue to contest a speeding ticket in. My second ticket was a similar offense in Manhattan. Mr. Wolfberg's knowledge and expertise saved my driving privileges in both instances. I've also recommended his services to several of my friends, and they have all reported similar success stories. I highly recommend this attorney to anyone facing any kind of traffic violation. I have probably saved close to a thousand dollars in just fees and surcharges alone, not to mention the savings in insurance premiums. So, in comparison to what I have paid this attorney for his services -- it is an absolute no brainier. Highly recommended!
Matisyahu was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. He got my speeding ticket at Brooklyn South Traffic Violations Bureau dismissed entirely with no fines or points assessed!
Matisyahu was not only professional but caring and a pleasure to work with
I have given him more than one case and always proves that he was the right pick.
Contacted Matisyahu Wolfberg and he was very prompt in his responses as well as follow up. Within a week of contacting him my issue had been resolved with no points against my license and a reduced fine. Would definitely recommend to others.
In 2012 I received a speeding ticket in Westchester County, 65/45. I was looking at 6 points but Mr. Wolfberg pleaded it down to a parking violation...no points. It gets better. Just recently I was cited for a speeding in Putnam County by a NYS trooper, 83/55. I thought I was cooked. But I contacted Mr. Wolfberg once again and he was able to plead this down to a NO POINT offense in the Putnam Valley Town Court...nothing to go on my MVR, no effect on my insurance rates!! Trust me, he is good, thorough and responsive.
Hired Mr Wolfberg to fight two tickets, one for speeding and another for unlicensed operation. Not sure how he did it, he got both my tickets dismissed! This was quite amazing as I believe that cases with the Queens North TVB were known to be difficult.
Mr Wolfberg was easy to work with and responsive to my questions, and I will definitely recommend him to anyone with a traffic ticket.
I called Matisyahu in a panic right after I got caught speeding. I was going 70 in a 40 mph zone. I was facing 6 points and at least $685 in fines, and surcharges. The phone call went extremely well. He reassured me that he will do his best and I actually believed him. Yesterday I got an email saying the whole ticket was dismissed!! As is it never existed! Thank you Matisyahu!!! Since yesterday I already recommended him!
Mr. Wolfberg did a great job on reducing my charges no points! Monroe Town Court.
I received a ticket for disobeying a traffic control device. I went to court to plea bargain it down to a no points violation but the DA wanted his pound of flesh and said no offer - take it or leave it. After almost accepting the "no offer" I asked for an adjournment to retain counsel. I contacted the office of Matisyahu Wolfberg. Attorney Wolfberg was familiar with the DA, the judge, and this tactic. Attorney Wolfberg was able to successfully get my ticket reduced to a parking violation with NO POINTS. I will hire Matisyahu Wolfberg as my attorney if ever I need a traffic attorney in the future. I cannot recommend Matisyahu Wolfberg highly enough to anyone who needs a traffic attorney.
Would I recommend this lawyer? ABSOLUTELY, I would! For ANYONE dealing with these revenue-generating criminals called traffic cops, Matishyahu Wolfberg is THE attorney you want!
When traveling to a family function, I had to go through New Jersey. And from past experience, I've completely learned how vile, over-the-top, oppressive & venomous their cops can be; so it was Best to completely avoid them by going in flow w/the rest of traffic. Traffic wasn't congested or sparse, but somewhere in the middle. I found a place in a line of SUVs ... 4 or 5 deep, the last one. And from my recollection, observing who passed me on the turnpike earlier, all the vehicles had New Jersey license plates.
Traveling in a line at an 83 mph clip, & not having changed lanes for a while, I saw the flashing lights from a police vehicle. I was told I was "speeding," so I asked how I, of all the drivers traveling at the SAME rate of speed, am THE one who was "doing wrong." The cop said it didn't matter WHO was doing WHAT, because "YOU were breaking the law." I asked if he used a laser device & he denied having done so (he might have targeted me, because my plates show that Jersey is NOT my home).
When presenting my license, I also slipped a DEA card underneath it ... but the trooper didn't pay it any mind & was deadset on finding ME "at fault." He went back to his vehicle & came back with a summons of an OBSCENE 90mph! A speed I was NOT traveling! ... being the LAST one in a pack of cars that could ALL apparently pass him "unnoticed," first! I left facing a steep fine, significant points, & an insidious spike in my insurance. Transportation is VITAL to me, for many reasons ... this unjust summons put me in A LOT jeopardy. I was truly facing the fire from this ordeal!
So I inquired of everybody I know, if they happened to have any New Jersey legal connections/hook ups. Nobody did; many HATED Jersey & "avoid traveling through there at all costs." So I decided to go online.
One of the 1st options I saw was www.NOTspeeding.com. I entered their site & read up on 'em. The organization seemed to have an honest/ethical basis, appeared professional &, maybe MOST important, Reliable. The hundreds of stories about Successful disputing of tickets, listed one after another, made www.NOTspeeding.com seem like a VERY favorable card to play. And with my vastly limited resources, they were the FIRST ones I tried out.
I submitted the required information & was eventually phoned by one of Matisyahu Wolfberg's crew members. I was given what I'd consider a reasonable price, compared to some of the ASTRONOMICAL figures certain attorneys had proposed, over a decade ago, when I had last gotten into trouble of similar magnitude. I felt that my future was in Good hands, so I retained their services.
My court date was soon in Jersey, & I KNEW there was NO way I'd be able to come up with the necessary ducats to pay a fine & other penalties, by that time. So I let the crew know I NEEDED a postponement. Court agreed to adjourn things, & sent correspondence to me with the new date.
Before my court date, I was stopped at a red light, in a turn lane w/my blinker on, and a moving vehicle crashed into and TOTALED my car .... sustaining NO damage to his car. I was found "at fault," however, b/c the assailant was a Fireman with his dept. affiliation right on his windshield, & a banner reading ON-DUTY, even though he wasn't & had NON-fire dept. passengers in his car. Firemen ALWAYS curry favor from cops :( . I now had NO transportation & let my attorney know. He decided to appear on my behalf.
Today, I got a call from THE Man himself, Matisyahu Wolfberg, after court. He said he intended to change the date but saw an opportunity to push for a Favorable outcome. His expertise somehow got my ticket reduced ... to a NO-point, 5 mph or less "speed!" I was AMAZED! The ONLY penalty (SIGNIFICANTLY lower than possible) was a fine of a few hundred dollars! These guys ROCK!!
