Anthony Colleluori is a phenomenal attorney. I had a child custody/child support case going and after another attorney screwed me up Mr. Colleluori was a God sent. He fought for my family and I as if we were part of his family. He made me feel as though he truly cared. He returned all my phone calls and emails in a timely manner. He was always up for the challenge and when we had court dates he was always well prepared and knew the facts without having to be spoon fed. Mr. Colleluori and his staff are well organized and full of incite.
Outside of court he is a gentle soul but once in court he is ready to fight.
I will always be indebted to Mr. Colleluori and his staff for all they did for my family and I.
Best attorney I ever saw hands down!

As a single mother I found myself in situations (I put myself into) trying to make ends meet. Finally I got caught up in something that would jeopardize my freedom. I googled criminal lawyers and Mr. Colleluori popped up. What a blessing!! From start to finish this man and his associates were by my side ensuring not only that I got the best outcome of my situation, but that I also worked on myself, as a person. My case was larceny case and I had a history of assault. My case was moved from criminal court to treatment court in Nassau County, NY where I was able to complete anger management and have my case dismissed upon the completion of my treatment requirements. Mr. Colleluori made sure that I got the services I needed instead of the punishment I deserved. That's what separates him from the rest. I am now attending college, working full time (in women's prison reform), and I am able to maintain my household as a single mother. Although I did the work, it was Mr. Colleluori who was there to guide and support me as my lawyer through this transition. There are not enough words to express how grateful I am. Thank you.

This guy stole my money and did not file required paperwork, as promised. He will, intentionally or not ( I honestly do not know what to believe), screw up your case so he can make more money. One of the first questions he will ask you is how much money you have. Please stay away. He charged me $3000 for a Motion, which he did not file. He then disappeared on me by moving to another office. His phones were disconnected for a while. He had two other attorneys working for him, but they both left his firm for reasons unknown.

Anthony took care of my discrimination case. I was very happy to find him as he is very knowledgeable. Anthony shows great concern towards his clients and is very humble unlike some other lawyers. Once he takes your case he will treat you by putting himself in your shoes. He kept me informed all along and was always there to response to my calls.

This was a complicated DWI case i placed myself in a ugly situation. Anthony was compassionate and professional this type of situation was not new to him. He is not distant and cold like some other lawyers i interviewed. Anthony cares and treated me like a human being. He helped me in various way to grow from this experience.

I highly recommend Mr. Colleluori for anyone in need of an attorney. Mr. Colleluori took the time to listen to my story, sympathized with my plight and then offered to handle my difficult case Pro Bono after the first attorney I had was pushing me to walk away from it without justice being done. He has always made time for me when I needed to talk to him, whether it was about my case or just life's difficulties in general. He is more than just knowledgeable in the law. As kind hearted as Mr. Colleluori is, he was also tough as nails when it came to representing me and got me the deserved end result. He is quite a force to be reckoned with when pushed past politeness. Yet he was nothing but caring and professional when in my presence.

After going through many lawyers in which direction we should go. Anthony came in and took control of the situation. This was a discrimination case that no other lawyer wanted to tackle. There were times when we though that justice was not going to be given for the violations thrust at me. Anthony came in did all he could to make this case heard in such a proffesional way, that the result was a victory for those who are discriminated upon in the workplace. With Anthony's help our case is now going to be in the Federal records for future victims to be able to resourse their litigations againts those violators who feel that they are above the law.

I would high recommend Anthony Collelouri. I started off my case with a different lawyer. It took him close to 4months to develope a case, but when i switched lawyers to Anthony he handled my case in half the time. He is very experienced, honest, and very family oriented.. Truely saved my family!!

Mr. Colleluori assisted me when my married daughter appeared to be in a domestic violence situation in Canada. Having moved there before a US passport was necessary, she had no passport and expired US indentification and couldn't re-enter the US. I was panicked over how to get her to safety and Mr. Colleluori immediately started gathering information for me on what to do, what attorney's there would help when I arrived (thanks to his extensive networking), even what to do if a Bounty Hunter's help was needed. I was terrified and yet had much more confidence as I booked a flight one night for the next morning, also having spoken to the US Consulate. He acted in a very speedy yet professional manner. I would not have known what to do when I arrived if not for him. I took her to the Consulate for her passport issues and she is now safe and sound. I can not express my gratitude enough for this Attorney at a time when I had little faith in his profession. I highly recommend Mr. Colleluori!

I can't say enough good things about Mr. Anthony Colleluori. I arrived at my appointment shaken and upset - which is how it feels when a law abiding citizen suddenly finds himself on the wrong side of the law. I suddenly felt like a patient in the hands of a good Doctor. He listened carefully to every word I said, answered every question and thoroughly examined the facts. I was extremely impressed by his knowledge and that of Amy Hsu - another attorney at his office.
In the midst of a difficult process - it is so comforting to know that there is a defense attorney like Mr. Colleluori ready to give all of his boundless energy and commitment to a case. He is a skilled professional who is also extremely personable. I highly recommend him and am extremely grateful to him for everything he has done for me.

Mr. Colleluori was the only reason I was able to make it through my criminal case ok. Not only did he put in 100% of his efforts and keep me constantly informed of the process of the case, but he made sure that he was there for me emotionally. His efforts resulted in my charges getting dropped. I absolutely recommend him- he is probably the most experienced and kind-hearted lawyer you will ever find.

Mr. Colleluori was the greatest person I could have asked to defend me. He took the time to listen to my whole explanation and carefully explain to me how everything works. I was extremely nervous since it was my first run in with the law but Mr. Colleluori did everything possible to assure me that it would be taken care of. He is extremely friendly and understanding. He took care of my case and did a spectacular job. I would trust him under any circumstances, the man knows his stuff. I assure the best legal advice with Mr. Colleluori.

Mr. Colleluori is a one in million attorney. He is beyond thorough and more than capable for any legal dilemma one may encounter. He thinks outside the box and is genuinely concerned for the welfare and interests of his client, unlike most self aggrandizing attorney's. And, most of all he is down to earth and a good man. A fifteen minute encounter will prove this true.
Mr. Colleluori saved my life in 1992 when I was 16 years old and arrested in Nassau County on a Manslaughter charge, facing the rest of my life in a state prison. Within six months I was released on time served for a misdemeanor. This was a feat no average attorney could accomplish; thus, Mr. Colleluori is one in a million.

I was accused of employee theft about 6 months ago for supposedly stealing money from my boss (i.e. skimming off the top) of business transactions. Mr. Colleluori and his staff quickly investigated the case and exposed my co-worker as trying to set me up. He personally made sure that I was kept updated of the situation and his staff quickly and efficiently found out the truth and they were able to pull me from the fire. Due to his actions I was able to get my job and life back and am still employed with the same company. His experience, courtroom presence and the respect other lawyers have for him is unparalleled by any other lawyer I have ever worked with. I would highly recommend him and his firm for any legal problems one might face.

Was involved in an accident and received bogus tickets. Mr. Colleluori came to visit me (6 hours away from his office) to ensure that I was okay. He is the type of lawyer that actually cares about his clients. After the accident, he personally took care of the tickets and his office kept my family and I updated frequently. The kind of attention that he gave to such a small case should make clients with more serious problems know that Mr. Colleluori and his firm will be there for them.
