I needed a criminal defense attorney for an assault charge recently and was recommended to call Attorney Berliner from a friend and I'm happy that I did. She listened to my story, gathered all the details and provided an outline of what to expect. Her legal skills are top notch and the case was dismissed. I would definitely recommend her law office.
used her 4 times...all good outcomes..answers all questions ..very good rates and will work with you...criminal defense was the reason for hiring her..also helped a friend win a lawsuit against the nypd for illeagal arrest..and helped a few other friends with good outcomes..she knows the law and has a good staff..
Rochelle is a terrific criminal attorney who obtained a fantastic result; a dismissal of my second-degree felony charge. During the pendency of my matter, I can honestly say she very much cares about her client, is personable, and goes that “extra mile” to protect her client’s interests. Whether it was the weekday or the weekend, she answered all my communications. She always kept my family and I up-to-date as to what was taking place and realistic and upfront as to what could take place. I have no hesitation to recommend her to anyone who has any type of a criminal charge lodged against him or her.
I came back to NYC after some time away, then ran into prolonged stress which resulted in a serious alcohol-related incident. Rochelle advocated to the extreme for me, which resulted in her spending extra time on the case. It was a traumatic time for me and others close to me, but I ended up with a minimum possible which also satisfied the DA, i.e. outpatient alcohol program and a misdemeanor. I checked other, objective legal sources and they universally stated that I could not have done better. I was lucky and anybody who retains her will be as well.
Rochelle is an excellent attorney, providing superb service, when it matters most. Her and Ami were very responsive and knowledgable.Rochelle also knows how the da works inside out. Not your cheap cop a plea lawer. Take it to trial and beat it lawer. For me, a "felony arrest" resulted in an ACD.
Rochelle is an excellent attorney who represented me on a labor matter. She was extremely responsive and thorough in assisting me reach a satisfactory resolution. While her specialty is criminal law, she was able to handle my matter with utmost professionalism.
Rochelle is the most compassionate and caring attorney, I have ever met. She was appointed to me at a time when I was being railroaded and misrepresented. She is sharp, witty, and listened to everything I had to say. She is very honest about what can and cannot be done. In addition, she goes through great measures to help you get what is needed to help your case. She protected my civil rights at all times and preserved every issue possible in case of a negative outcome. Fortunately, we beat the District Attorney of Queens, NY and got a positive outcome at my attempted murder 2, robbery 2, and assault 2 trial. She gave a great closing argument and knew how to get through to the jury. If you need a tough yet caring attorney, please give her a call.
We do not live in NY, but our son needed an attorney there. After speaking with Atty Berliner we felt comfortable in her assistance. She went to the jail to meet him, and gave us feedback on his condition. Throughout a month in jail and two court appearances, she kept us informed via phone and email. She recommended a course of action, which resulted in his charges being dismissed. We really appreciated both her caring nature and her legal expertise.
