I called Peter's office on a Saturday afternoon. He met with me the next day, Sunday, and sat with me for at least an hour discussing my situation.
I had been arrested for DWI and he completely explained my options and chances. Once we determined a course of action, he instructed me of several steps to take pre-trial, that resulted in smooth proceedings.
When the court sent two errant tickets related to the incident several months later, I called Peter, who was out of town, and someone else from his practice took care of it immediately.
Honest and effective lawyer.

From the first time i talked with Peter I had a good feeling about him. He was genuine and honest. It was only after talking to a family lawyer about my situation that i was sure that Peter was the lawyer i wanted. I asked the family lawyer about Peter and i said" i heard he is the best dwi lawyer in the state". The family lawyer got up from his chair and went over and got a book about 3 inches thick and said" he is not the best in the state, he is the best in the country". He put the book down in front of me and said he wrote the this book, the book on dwi defense. So at that point I knew the lawyer i wanted. Peter exceeded my expectations in my case. He did an outstanding job and he was also honest with me and cared what direction my life was going. He felt more like family to me than a lawyer representing me. I cant say enough about him and how he not only helped me in my case but in life too. Without question Peter would be my 1st recommendation for a lawyer.

I won't get into details but the severity of the crime would have ruined my life. I was falsely accused and Mr. Gerstenzang not only saw that but sought to it that justice prevailed in the end and I would not be found guilty. He did everything he possibly could, he would work tirelessly to make sure every detail of everything was covered/said/written down. There wasn't a stone un-turned and it was a massive relief having him on my side. I quite honestly wouldn't be in the spot I am now without him, he is a passionate, caring and loyal attorney who knows the law like the back of his hand and will do everything in his power to make sure his clients receive the best outcome possible.

In my experiences in working with Peter Gerstenzang, he has been a consummate professional and demonstrates himself to be THE EXPERT when it comes to DWI laws in the state of NY. Some people go in to a career for a job and some people take it on as a true calling. Mr. Gerstenzang is the latter. Peter not only has a passion for the law but he also demonstrates a genuine concern for his client's well being. He is straightforward with the facts but always willing to think creatively in a way that the desired outcome is within the boundaries of justice while at the same time protective of his clients so that the law does not just destroy their lives. I highly recommend Peter should you be in need of representation by the best and most well respected lawyer in the business!!!! He will not let you down!!!

Peter Gerstenzang is a kind, patient and caring person. He has helped my son from the minute I made that phone call to him in the middle of the night when my son got a DWI and landed in jail. He called me back first thing the next morning and advised me. He also recommended a fantastic rehabilitation facility for my sons addictions. Every time I have reached out to Peter with a question he gets right back to me with an answer. No waiting forever for a call back like so many lawyers do. He talks to me at a level I comprehend. My experience with him helping my son legally and personally with his issues has been really great. I would recommend him.

Mr. Gerstenzang and his associates Jim Davis and Jon Cohn are the epitome of professionalism, diligence and legal acumen. My case was handled without flaw or blemish and they eradicated what could have been a career threatening issue. When I arrived in the office for the initial consultation and browsed the textbook Mr. G. authored; I immediately felt a sense of relief.
From start to dismissal, my case was handled with confidence and dexterity.
I recommend this team led by Mr. Gerstenzang unequivocally and unanimously.

I was charged with a DWI 4 months ago. The severity of this incident intensified due to the fact that I refused the breathalyzer test, there was also property damage and I have a CDL license.
Initially, I was referred to an attorney in hopes that he would be able to help with these charges, but I was somewhat skeptical about the outcome. I decided to ask around to see if I could find another attorney who deals with similar cases like this (CDL/DWI). Luckily, I was referred to Peter Gerstenzang, Esq. (Super Lawyer) and his firm. I immediately called Mr. Gerstenzang and his reassurance made me feel like I still had a fighting chance!
I must also commend his associate, James Davis, Esq., who represented me for my first appearance at the DMV for the refusal part. He was extremely supportive and did an amazing job! He is forever in my heart!!
After the first step was complete, I now had to wait for the second part, criminal charges. On August 20th, I received a phone call from Mr. Gerstenzang explaining that the DA had no choice but to dismiss my case and drop all charges due to a loop-hole which was discovered by Mr. Gerstenzang's son, Joseph. (We thank you too)!
My family and I cannot thank Mr. Gerstenzang and his team enough for their hard work, professionalism, and dedication throughout this process. I don't know where I would be if it wasn't for this A team. We will be forever grateful for everything you and your amazing team have done for us!

There is nothing worst than learning your graduate studies daughter is involved in a dwi summons. Feeling helpless I called an Attorney friend and asked his advise on what to do. He assured me that the reprsentation Peter Gerstensang would provide was who I needed . I spoke with Peter and he began the process of getting to know my daughter and then brininging us together as a family to his offices on a Saturday morning to see how we as a family were going to handle the months ahead. He is without a doubt one of the most knowledgable people i have ever met with a real sense of family and what was needed by my daughter during these months ahead. His conversation to my daughter was frank and while we didn't think it was making a difference in her aerogance towards what had occurred she was obviously absorbing what Peter was advising her. The outcome has veen highly favorable and during the entire year plus Peter was always keeping my wife and I totally aware of the next steps.
He is a great person with a sense of family that makes these situations manageable when being so far away. I would recommend Peter and his team for any legal situationn he is a great lawyer.

Do you ever see those giant books lawyers reference when searching for ways to attack a case? Well these are the guys writing the go to books for New York DWI defense(not an exaggeration). I went to this firm and got a borderline Aggravated DWI completely dismissed. My lawyer from the firm was James Davis(I wrote an in depth review under his name) and he and the rest of the staff at Gerstenzang, O'Hern & Hickey are fantastic in every area of the defense game.
