I am a first timer in this DUI thing. I was additionally charged with hit and run. Everything I experienced was unknown and I was desperately trying to find out information with no success. I had heard Michele speak at a Professionals Luncheon a couple years earlier and was impressed with her knowledge and experience. I never thought that I would need her services, but in retrospect is was one of the best decisions I have made as there are some serious repercussions in these cases (DUI plus hit and run).
Most of the system is created so that you don't really know what is going on and the overwhelming feeling of things being out of your control can eat you alive. My first step towards getting out of this quicksand was to hire Michele for representation. She has been working these cases for many years and knows how to translate all this legal stuff into plain English. Just like I would want my eyes operated on by a surgeon who has done hundreds of these operations, I want someone who has done hundreds of DUI cases. As time went on she was constantly keeping me in the loop on what was happening which is great because so little information is available to you. She always gave me straight answers and best/worse case on all levels.
In the end she was able to work a great outcome and I was ecstatic that I was able to avoid jail time. Then came the surreal part of the story...the DMV.
After the Court case ended you then have to deal with the DMV "court", They can do whatever they want and Michele went in front of them. They suspended my license for 4 months even though I was not convicted of a DUI and that is where her tenacity came in handy. If you have ever waited at the DMV to renew your license, then just imagine how inefficient their "court" system is. She was on them constantly and was able to get this decision overturned and I got my license back. Most attorneys would have given up once the decision at the DMV was made but she went the extra mile and I am grateful for that.
Even if these outcomes did not come out as well as they did, at least I knew that I did all I could possibly do by having Michele represent me. That is important when you are dealing with previously unthinkable outcomes such as jail, which I had only experienced on TV or in the movies. As you empty your mail box with all the solicitation letters from other lawyers you can take my experience into account and contact Michele for representation...I am glad I did.

I received 2nd DUI a few months ago and didn't know what to do I was very worried I would go to jail, lose my job and a lot of other things as well. Luckily I was able find Michele Ferroni she was able to bring my case down to a minimum first offense and keep me from possibly facing some jail time, she is a life saver! She handled everything and I hardly did anything! She truly cares for her clients and was very aggressive in handling my case. I would highly recommend her to anybody looking for a top notch DUI Attorney, she is the best out there!

I reviewed several law offices before selecting Lawrence Taylor's to defend a very difficult DUI case. Though LT is on the pricier side, I felt that even from the initial consultation they took the time to sit with me and go through the specifics of my case without knowing whether or not I would ultimately choose them to represent me. I went with my gut and I'm really glad I did. I was assigned Michele, who's been practicing this type of law for almost 20 years and focuses solely on these types of cases. It was apparent from speaking with her that she not only knew her stuff but also that she had established really great relationships in the court system, and made sure that I knew I could contact her anytime with questions or concerns; but also that she would handle all of the details so that I could go on living my life, while allowing me to be as involved in the process as I liked to be. This was exactly what I was looking for: someone aggressive yet tactful that I could trust to deal with the situation completely on my behalf and would just let me know whenever she needed something from me, which was rare. She was thorough in explaining my various options, and was very up front in terms of the likelihood of the outcomes based on the particular details of my situation (which were grim). The strength of her skill, diligence, persistence and relationships was extremely evident based upon the results of both my DMV and criminal hearings. Despite the difficulties we faced, she managed to get me a wet reckless instead of a DUI, which was practically a miracle! The awesome thing is, that I really learned a lesson throughout this process, and I'm SO thankful to her for everything she's done to help me keep my head up during the whole ordeal. I would HIGHLY recommend Michele to anyone who is confronted with the unfortunate situation of contesting a DUI charge. THANK YOU, MICHELE, you're the BEST!!!

Getting a DUI charge is a very unsettling and uncomfortable experience. Working with Michele, however, makes it a lot easier to deal with. She undoubtedly knows her stuff and her experience in this field is immediately recognizable. In my situation, her expert counsel and knowledge of the ins and outs of DUI laws helped in getting me a dismissal of the DUI charge and a substantially reduced conviction. She is diligent, but also candid and honest, all of which I appreciated.

Michele went above and beyond for me and far exceeded my expectations. She was prompt to answer all my questions, she was amazing to get along with and she made my awful experience as pleasant as it could be. I highly recommend hiring her for your legal needs.

I unfortunately received a DUI. This was the first time that I had any trouble with the law and did not know where to start. Luckily, I found the Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor, Inc. Michele Ferroni was a blessing to me. She understood that I was nervous and scared of what was to come. She was able to explain to me in words that I was able to understand what to expect. Michele was able to get the DUI off my record and no such alcohol charge at all. Not only was she able to help me in the aspect of the court case, Michele also took it upon herself to take the time to explain to me the different choices and situations I had. She has continued to be there for me even after the case is closed with all the answers to any questions I have about the process and the next steps to take. I highly recommend such a friendly, helpful, encouraging attorney. Michele is the best in the business and works harder then I ever expected for a DUI case. Thank you Michele!

Michele handled my case with the utmost responsibility, professionalism, and intellect. The results I received were better than expected and I could not have been happier.
I have an incredibly busy work schedule, so to put my trust and confidence into someone I hardly know was difficult at first. Yet, Michele streamlined the process and gave me the quality I needed to have a sound mind.

I have known Ms. Ferroni for fifteen years. I have worked as co-counsel with Ms. Ferroni on several occasions and I can assure you that she is an outstanding lawyer. She is always prepared, responsive and professional.

My son was arrested for a DUI after a couple of beers following a study group. Ms. Ferroni had the charge reduced to reckless driving wet and his license suspension to four months instead of six. Once he completes his suspension she will then seek to have his probation ended and his record expunged. She took what could have been a tragedy for a young college student and, while not mitigating the seriousness of his actions, handled it in such a way as to allow him a untarnished future. She did a great job, communicated effectively and we would recommend her without hesitation.

Michele has been an absolute Godsend! During a very difficult time in my life, she handled my case, not only with incredible competence and efficiency, but with a wonderful human compassion that I could have never dreamed for! She restored my belief in the legal profession...
