Mr. Borrelli saved me from losing a very large sum of money after I had pursued about every single outcome possible. He did his research and contacted me with a possible solution and 100% delivered on that solution! I would recommend Mr. Borrelli to anyone that would listen.

Mr. Borrelli was able to reach an amicable settlement in a case which resulted in the recovery of financial losses sustained. The process was long, but the outcome was very favorable. In the end, Mr. Borrelli executed and successfully accomplished the goal.

Michael J. Borrelli is an asset to the legal profession. He is a perfect example of a knowledgable, responsible, diligent lawyer. He and his firm are top notch with returning calls and emails. They make the client a top priority. I received a lucrative settlement in a manner so fast I could hardly believe it! You will not find a better counsellor!

Although my case is still ongoing, I am comfortable stating that Attorney Michael Borrelli is incredibly knowledgeable, compassionate towards the suffering I've endured, and has made me feel very safe during a grueling 50h hearing along with a long overall process.
He has kept me informed and has really gone above and beyond his duties to just be an ear when repercussions from my case have left me emotionally depleted. Due to the depth of issues aligned with my case, I would not feel comfortable with any other attorney by my side.
Especially for women who wish to be taken seriously, would like to feel self-empowered by standing up for yourself, and are tired of other attorneys talking down to you or making you feel insignificant; give Attorney Michael Borrelli a call. Think of him as a temporary backbone while you heal.

I consulted with Mr. Borrelli a year ago about my sexual harassment case that was initially uncomfortable for me to pursue. During my consultation Mr. Borrelli informed me of my rights and addressed me in a manner that made me feel comfortable confiding in him as my attorney. I hired Mr. Borrelli on the spot and never looked back. With his guidance and help I was able to find a solution to my situation and avoid most of the uncomfortable issues I thought I would have to face pursuing my claims against my harasser.

I engaged Michael John Borrelli, Esq. to handle a wrongful termination due to illness. As I guess was to be expected, the case is taking a LONG time to be resolved. The case has been transferred over to Mr. Borrelli's associate, Alex Coleman, Esq., to be further handled. Mr. Coleman has been helpful in occasionally explaining to me how the case is progressing (or not progressing). In general, I am learning that when one has brought a case, a commitment to a great deal of patience in terms of time and money, is a major part of the territory. That, and a great deal of trust. This al1 being said, I can wholeheartedly recommend Michael John Borrelli, Esq., his associate, and his staff for issues dealing with employment/labor.

Mr. Borrelli takes time out of his busy schedule to check in with clients to see if all is well and if they have any questions. Mr. Peter Famighetti assigned to my case emulates Mr. Borrelli's caring mannerism and professionalism.

I hired Mr. Borrelli just over a year ago to handle a huge problem I was having at work due to pregnancy discrimination. I am a New York City Public School teacher and during my consultation he told me about all the administrative steps I needed to take in order to assert my rights, which I had no idea about. I didn't hire him on the spot, but after consulting with other attorneys I decided that he was the best choice. With his help I was able to take maternity leave without having to worry about not having a job this coming September. A big thank you to Mr. Borrelli!

Simply the best all the way around. From the professionalism of the staff to the expertise of the attorney to the better than expected results of my case. I highly recommend.

I caution you NOT to hire this attorney. He is completely lacking in character and integrity and is not to be trusted. I am currently in the process of filing against him with the New York State Bar and am seeking ethics violations. I am also suing him to recover funds that he took that he was not entitled to. On top of all that, he did extreme damage to my case.

Mr. Borrelli handled my case with professionalism. My case was a difficult discrimination case that looked at times like it would not have a chance, but Mr. Borrelli never lost faith, was always in control and fought aggressively for me. It was hard during the case to always sit back and fully trust him because of all my emotion, but he reassured me the whole way and was more successful than even I thought I would be. I highly recommend him, a good attorney and a good person who cares. Treats his staff with respect also. I felt like I had a whole team fighting for me.

Went to his office and saw an associate of his. He would not look at any of the documentation that I brought in yet when I made the appointment, the secretary was excited by the fact that I have a lot of data. The associate hardly let me speak and talked rings around me nor did I get all of my questions answered. Charged me $150 for a half hour.
I received a letter from his office a week later and it had the basic information about the case wrong.
It was a total waste of my time and money.

I went to Mike for a minor employment issue, but because of his knowledge of the laws found there was much more that was incorrect than I realized. He worked with me patiently as I gathered the information required and took the time to represent me in an ethical and professional manner. He also took the time far after the case was settled to read over paperwork and advise a family member on an unrelated situation they were going through. He is a terrific lawyer.

Mr. Borrelli is a knowlegeable professional who treats his clients with the utmost respect. Along with Mr. Borrelli's knowledge of the legal system he takes the time to explain to a layman what the best course of action to take would be. Situations requiring an attorney can be stressful and I've always felt relaxed dealing with Mr. Borrelli and anyone on his staff. Step by step he kept me abreast on all actions taken and the communication with is office was open and honest.
