    I received a ticket when turning right on red in Vermont. The police said I did not stop, just slowed down. The ticket was $220 and 2 points. I wanted to go to the court myself. But then I saw "Attack the Ticket" online, I placed a call to the office. Mike returned my phone call within 2 hours. He was honest with me when he said it was an 80% chance of winning on my case. While multiple Vermont lawyers had absolutely no confidence on it but advised me to drop the case and pay the fine instead. I finally decided to go with Mike. Over 1 month later, I received a letter from Vermont Judicial court that informed me the case was dismised. Mike's team was amazing. It definitely made my money worth!

    I live in Ontario but I was charged in NY State with speeding at 76mph in a 55 zone. I would typically pay and 'drive on' but now there is a reciprocal arrangement between Ontario and NY so the insurance impact was a very significant concern. I was impressed with Mr. Palumbo's website so I sent him an email - he called me back directly. I then provided him with all the information he requested (you do need an abstract from the MTO (easy) and a notarized representation letter (less easy)) . Five weeks later I was informed that my speeding ticket was reduced to a parking violation with a fine. In my opinion this was the best case scenario - thank you Michael.

    After receiving this 6 point speeding ticket, I was very upset. As a young 20 year old, I did not want any points on my license at all. I have a clean license. The last thing I would need is for my insurance to increase and with 6 points it would have increased a lot. I did some research and came across Michael Palumbo. He had lots of positive reviews with great results. I decided to pay the $495.00 fee he charged and I am so happy right now. He emailed me with the outcome of my court hearing. He got the 6 point speeding ticket knocked down to a parking violation with 0 points. Yes, I do have to pay a fine which is a little more than I would have liked to pay but the money is not the important issue here. The most important issue was that Michael Palumbo came through and got the best results. I am a very happy and pleased client and would reccomend him to anyone. Thank you so much Michael Palumbo. You just made my day. Diana

    I am very satisfied with the results to my case. I was afraid there was very low chance on this case because nyc dmv are the hardest to win against when it comes to cellphone tickets. Many other firms discouraged me saying i have a poor chance of winning so i cannot say thank you enough for the good news that my case has been dismissed!!! Pricey to hire but definitely worth it!! Glad i hired him it saved me a lot of future headache!

    Well Let me tell ya! I got a speeding ticket in VT... (85 MPH in a 65 MPH Zone) and they had me by all rights 100%. I have a Company car & my Employer not only frowns on traffic violations, in some cases TERMINATION can happen, doesn't matter how good you are at your job, how many $1,000.00's of dollars you make them. A 20 over speed can add you to the unemployment line! I searched for some help, (I live in NH & had to go to VT for work) I goggled Attorneys spoke to 3, I begged for help & the generic response was "$1,200.00 - $1,400.00 and I can't promise anything..."

    Then I found "AttackThatTicket.Com & after looking at the site 4 different times I called, and I got the same line, "We can't make any promises, it's a $600.00 flat fee and you DO NOT NEED TO GO TO COURT! We will work the best possible deal we can for you. Maybe we can make it an expensive parking ticket to help you with your job."

    So I bit the bullet & sent my $600.00 bucks in and that was that, I didn't hear from them, in-fact I called the day before, asking if they were going to court, I was told "of coarse we are" Well 2 or 3 days after the Court date I had an e-mail from the office.... I was sweatin' it out wondering what the damages are, will I get fired? Was it worth the $600.00 bucks? I opened the e-mail & I had to read it TWICE! It read,
    "We took your Vermont ticket to trial on December 18, 2014. However prior to trial we made an application to dismiss and it was granted, In other words you won. You need to do nothing more the case is over.
    WOW !!!!!!! If you're questioning if this is real or they have a good way of getting things done, Well my advise go with AttackThatTicket.Com!!! I'm still in dis-belief. It was the right choice! Thank You Michael!!!!

    • I do not recommend Michael Palumbo.

    I received a 4-point speeding ticket after being charged with going over 70 mph in a 55 mph zone in New York State. Immediately, I plead not guilty and began researching traffic ticket-specific attorneys and was very impressed with Mr. Palumbo, his track record and reviews from others who were charged with similar violations.

    I hired Mr. Palumbo for his flat fee of $495 with no guarantees expected. Cripes...his firm even goes to court on your behalf to fight your ticket! Or so I thought. Less than a week before my pre-trial date, I received a notice that my ticket issue was resolved and that he had plead guilty on my behalf for a measly 1-point reduction. So my ticket ended up being a violation of running a stop sign with a 3-point penalty. Countless others with the same 4-point charge on this site were left with a 2-point charge or had their points dropped to zero as Mr. Palumbo told me he could do.

    Although Mr. Palumbo was very professional and responsive, I was expecting him or one of the other firm's attorneys to fight their hardest and actually go to court for me to get the "best possible outcome," in his own words. Several other attorneys could have plead guilty through mail on my behalf for a lot less money with the same outcome, but I hired him specifically with the expectation of the firm showing up to court and using his cross examination of an officer techniques in the 2007 periodical to which he contributed. Honestly, he did not fight as hard as he could have, in my opinion, for the money. Overall, I would not recommend him.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This comment is the very reason why people should retain counsel - to protect themselves from themselves. What this former client does not understand is as follows: Yes, while we did plead him guilty for a 1 point reduction we plead him guilty to a 3 point NON-SPEEDING ticket. This was a great outcome although not seemingly so, because we got him a conviction OUT OF SPEED. That is always the exigency in a speeding ticket case to get the client out of speed, because speeding causes amplifying problems on ones driving record.

      What this former client did not tell you, because he does not understand the significance of it, was that in the past 18 months he 1 prior speeding conviction. Once a person receives 3 speeding convictions in an 18 month period his NYS license or privileges are revoked. So had I turned this offer down I would have risked having my client found guilty of a speeding ticket, and then if he had received another one and been found guilty he would have lost his license.

      In this case, we acted in the most prudent way possible. Our clients insurance did not go up and he is not in danger of losing his NYS driver's license or privileges if he gets a speeding conviction in the future. Moreover, we saved our client time and money by getting his personal appearance waived from court. All and all, this client benefited greatly from the service.
