Driving on the NY Interstate and guy in front of me jammed on brakes and I sped to get around and a very gentlewomanly trooper did not want to hear anything except my Thank you.
Brian made an I87 16MPH over ticket park too close to a hydrant. LOL! What can I say.
But the most important thing is how courteously and swiftly he handled all the paperwork exchanges and got results. All in all the expenses were long term much less than points and surcharges.
Thank you Brian.

Thank you Brian!!!

Excellent lawyer and very trustworthy. I found him over the internet and he was very professional and resolved the case in the manner he said he would. He explained everything to me and was very straight forward. I was very impressed with his skills as well as his ability to work well with clients.

Brian Berkowitz is a rarity in the legal community: he is both an exceptional person and a first class attorney. Brian handled my case with patience and diligence, presenting me with all possible options and tailoring his representation around my goals. His knowledge of the law and friendly disposition helped resolve my stressful situation in the best possible way. I cannot recommend Brian highly enough.

We hired Brian Berkowitz after our son received a DWI. We were upset and nervous, but Brian was compassionate and reassuring. He met with us immediately, and after asking many questions, he explained what he hoped to accomplish, which was to have it reduced to a DWAI since it was a first-time offense, and what we could expect. His recommendations and coaching before the court date were very helpful, and the outcome was exactly as he had hoped. Throughout the process, he was a phone call or email away and would promptly get back to us if we had questions or concerns. We would highly recommend Brian if you or a loved one find yourself in a similar situation.

Brian Berkowitz is a truly amazing attorney! I would highly recommend anyone in need of legal assistance to Brian. He has an incredible understanding of the legal system and is willing to answer any questions that may arise. He has a sense of calm and charisma that would put anyone at ease. Although it was a difficult time in my life, he was very sensitive to my needs. The outcome of my case was more than satisfactory. And I would not hesitate for a second in recommending him to handle a case~ especially in Rockland County. He has become a friend.

Brian is a true legal scholar. I contact him on every legal issue I have- criminal or not. His reccomendations are exactly like his performance, second to none. He has come to my rescue numerous times, and exceeded my expectations each and every time. I sleep better at night knowing he is on the case. Ask yourself, wouldn't you want to also? Make the smartest choice in a dire situation. You won't be sorry.

Mr. Berkowitz was completely honest and reliable when it came to my case. He informed me of all options and consequences and kept in touch with me. What he said was going to happen, happened. I could not ask for anything else. Great deal and wonderful guy who is always willing to help. He is unlike many others whom are simply out there to get your money and do nothing! Nothing is on my record and I give many thanks to Mr. Berkowitz!

I got a speeding ticket on January 1, 2011 on I-87 near Ramapo in New York State... Not the way I wanted to start out my year.
I did research on the Internet and found several attorneys serving the City of Ramapo/Rockland County area. I made calls out to each of them and Mr. Berkowitz was the one that stood out.
He was friendly, understanding and professional on our first call. He explained to me how the process worked. He seemed experienced and knowledgeable. I retained him and he began working on my case. He provided me with news, advice and timely updates on subsequent follow-up calls.
Ultimately, Mr. Berkowitz was able to obtain the decision I wanted. For that, I am happy, grateful and relieved.
I highly recommend Mr. Berkowitz.

Working with Mr. Berkowitz (or Brian as he likes to be called) was a great experience. He is professional, knowledgeable, and pleasure to speak with. Very polite and tells you all facts no matter how grim. Doesn't promise the most favorable outcome but definetly works hard to meet that expectation. And when he delivers above beyond expectation it gives him that much more credibility. I would recommend him to anyone who needs legal services in the rockland county area.

Brian Berkowitz is easily far and away the greatest and best lawyer I have ever had. He was attentive and efficient in handling my case from the first day I brought it to him, and even long afterward following up and making sure I was taken care of. We remain in contact and I won't make any legal decisions without first consulting him. Brian Berkowitz is my lawyer.

Mr. Berkowitz was there for me every step of the way during a bad situation. He did everything possible to work in my best interest. I was immeditly impressed by his sincerety and that he was not just about getting paid. Each time I called Brian he would return my calls almost, if not immediatly. In the courtroom he was knowledgeable and forthright. My case was resolved with the best outcome for me possible. Brian even took the time, after the case was closed, to follow up with me and make sure all was well with me and my family.

I know that I can always count on him to be professional and sincere with any future questions or concerns that I may have. Brian Berkowitz is an exceptional lawyer.

I’m a middle age professional adult and I have no criminal history. Brian Berkowitz allowed me to stay that way. I made a mistake that resulted in a DUI arrest and found myself in need of a lawyer. I had spoken to several lawyers before calling Mr. Berkowitz and found them all to be a bit on the “aggressive salesman” side of the fence. Brian however in our first conversation came across as honest and forthright. We sat and spoke during my initial consultation and his calm professionalism immediately put me at ease. As my relationship with Brian progressed though the legal system I continued to be calmed by several factors. Most notably the way he handled my case. His communication was outstanding and he pulled no punches in explaining to me exactly how serious my situation was and based on what I was being charged with what he felt he could do for me. When it came time to go before the judge he was there, both times and on time. The case unfolded exactly as Brian said it would and his rapport with the judge and DA was very respectful and reassuring. Through Brian’s outstanding legal representation I was given the best possible judgment I could hope for and that made me very happy.
Given my special situation regarding low BAC levels and potential fines in both NJ and NY Brian went above and beyond what was expected by requesting documentation in an effort to minimize the monetary impact of the fines and penalties I may eventually suffer, thanks again Brian. I’m also very happy with his payment flexibility and how he allowed me to work out a payment plan that would fit my budget. Working with such an honest and easy to talk to lawyer who produced results is what really turned what could have been a nerve wrenching experience into a professional, legal step by step process in which I was guided through and represented in our legal system by a confident quality driven and professional lawyer. Two thumbs up for the law office of Brian Howard Berkowitz and that aint no bull!!!
