5.0 stars 44 totalReview Edward Fiandach
Back in May of 2015 I got charged with a felony DWI. Embarrassed and ashamed of myself I knew I needed one heck of a good lawyer that was very experienced in DWI'S. I couldn't be happier in that I retained Fiandach & Fiandach to represent me. It's been almost a year and I'm still fighting my case with ease knowing Ed and his team are the best lawyers possible. I've seen an actual bench trial while I was awaiting and Mr. Rath tore apart the officer as the court room was literally laughing at the arresting officer. They have been open and honest every step of the way and never for a minute did they make me feel less of a person for my poor decision to drink and drive. They have given me the upmost respect and are very professional. They are friendly, on time and ready at every single court appearance thus far. I am relieved to know that I'm in good hands and I will give an update as to the final conclusion of my case. A huge thank you to your firm Ed as you clearly exceeded my expectations!
PS: IF YOUVE MADE A WRONG CHOICE MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE BY CONTACTING FIANDACH & FIANDACH, I PROMISE YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!! MONEY WELL SPENT!!!!!!!!
Back in the Fall of 2015 I was arrested for DWI first offense and pleaded not guilty. I was initially not offered and type of plea other than DWI and all the penalties that go along with that charge. About my fourth appearance at court before trial I was offered a violation charge of DWAI. I decided to go for it and I now know I hired the right lawyer to defend me.
I have had the pleasure of hiring Edward Fiandach in the past. When I was stopped this time, I had little hope for getting help. This charge was a misdemeanor, however, with my past convictions, things did not look good. Ed and his team of attorneys were willing to take this case. They were very up front with what I could expect and what I needed to do. Unfortunately, I was looking at several surgeries which left me under the care of a visiting nurse. I'm still looking at another surgery in January. Because of the medical conditions, and with the great help from Ed Fiandach, I was given probation. Thank you for your belief and concern you have shown me. I would highly recommend Edward Fiandach. He is definitely the best.
I found myself in the unfortunate circumstances where I needed to hire a DWI attorney and I'm glad I chose Fiandach and Fiandach. Ed and his team were great at explaining the process, answering my questions, and keeping me informed throughout the process. During the pre-trial hearing the judge ruled to suppress all evidence (basically dismissing the case) all due to strong work/performance of Ed's team member during the hearing). However, the DA appealed to the county court and, due to no fault of Ed or his team, my case was prolonged for over two years. Throughout the whole process, Ed and his team were very responsive, did all that they could to help me stay patient, and pushed through until the case was just finally dismissed! I'm fortunate that everything will be erased from my record so it won't effect my career or my family in the future. A very hard lesson to learn but I'm grateful that, because of the work of Ed and his team, I will not have a criminal record.
When I was in the custody of the police after my arrest, I told them that I wanted to talk to a lawyer before I made up my mind because I am a school teacher. I tried several numbers, but either they weren't there or they wanted a credit card. The officer said "Fiandach always answers" and he was right. At 3:30 in the morning, Ed painstakingly went through my situation and condition and even spoke with the officer. After I was released, I contacted the Fiandach office, spoke with a nice woman named Sue and was given an immediate appointment with Ed. For the next four months we were a team. Ed and his associates were always on time for court and it was obvious to me that they knew their way through the system. On the day of my trial I was terrified, but Ed's friendly manner mellowed me out. In the end, we got what Ed hoped we'd get and I kept my job and my sanity. Thank you Ed and everyone at Fiandach & Fiandach.
I had always thought that DWI lawyers and personal injury lawyers were the bottom of the bucket . . . Until I received a DWI and hired Edward L. Fiandach. As many other reviewers say, at our first meeting he made me feel at ease. He informed me that this was going to be no easy task and was quite clear in informing me that we might not win. While I was a client he always returned my calls promptly and kept me informed with letters and emails. Also, at no additional charge, I could meet with him when ever I wanted. When we went to trial I was astounded by the manner in which works. He told me in advance that he does not use notes when he cross-examines and he doesn't! He KNOWS every detail in his head! He knew every fact and cross-examined the cop right into the ground. He actually got him to admit that he might have made a mistake when he said I was drunk! I swear I will never drive drunk again, but if YOU have, there is only one place you should go, Fiandach and Fiandach.
I was pulled over one night and was charged with my first aggrevated DWI. My wife insisted that I hire Ed Fiandach. I had my initial consultation with him and that was the only time I saw Mr.Fiandach. I read all the reviews and decided to hire him as my counsel. The whole process took a year to settle. Mr. Fiandach did not represent me in any of my court appearances however his team of different attorneys were with me every time I had court. Plea deal of just a DWI was offered to me multiple times but I was determined to get a dismissal since I read multiple reviews online from different clients that Mr.Fiandach is a master in getting a case exactly like mine dismissed. I opted to take the case to trial instead of accepting a Plea deal because I was not settling for a DWI. I am hoping Mr.Fiandach shows up on this last day of judgement and the result is in my favor. A completely different attorney shows up who I have never seen or met before on my final day of judgement. We introduce each other and we go to trial. 2 hours later I walk out with a conviction of aggrevated DWI. Never heard or saw Mr.Fiandach since the day I initially consulted him and paid him in full for retaining him as my counel. I will say that his team of attorneys are very polite and cordial. Will I recommend the fiandach firm to anyone? I dont think so because I am a result driven individual and I had the pleasure of meeting his team and witnessing them perform in the courtroom except for Mr.Fiandach and for that reason I doubt the integrity of all the positive reviews that are listed all over the internet.
I had first talked to a different attorney to discuss my problem and decided to go with him. By the time I got home I felt I had made a mistake...I had always heard good things about Fiandach & Fiandach so I went to the site. When I read all the great reviews I knew I had to make a change. I called their office that afternoon and they took me in the following morning. I immediately made the final decision to hire Ed after talking to him. He did the best job anyone could have done for me and I would highly recommend him. Ed Fiandach is definitely the best.
I sincerely do not know what I would have done without Mr. Fiandach's expertise and support.
I had my first (and I expect my only) DWI.
I was embarrassed and scared of what a conviction would do to my career, future opportunities and reputation.
Ed was forthcoming and honest about the potential outcomes. His counsel was on point. Although I was a nervous wreck before each court appearance , I always left knowing that l selected the best lawyer.
-My Iicense was not suspended as the judge intended.
-My case was very long due to issues with arresting officers. There were times l wanted to accept a deal and Mr. Fiandach provided pros and cons to all of my options.
I am thankful that he sincerely cared about the outcome as much as I did.
Long story short -my case was dismissed.
Mr. Fiandach was there each step of the way and I undoubtedly recommend him.

Ed Fiandach is a magician in the courtroom. I did my research and hired him after getting my 5th DWI, I was facing major time in prison. The D.A. offered me a plea deal for 2 to 6 years upstate. My case was horrible, I failed the breathalyzer, double the legal BAC, admitted to the arresting officer that I was drinking, even signed a statement against myself. Basically I'm guilty as sin... until Mr Fiandach approached the bench and negotiated with the Judge and the D.A. and came back with a new plea deal for one county year, and I don't even have to start serving my time until summer is over! (62 days away!) By far the greatest attorney I've ever had the pleasure to meet!
