Zealous Taffic Stop
Its was in the mist of a snow storm that a police officer pulled me over on a city street. He asked me why did I severed. I explained that if I did severed it was due to the condition of the road (4 inches of snow) and not due to any careless on my part. The officer then asked me for my paper work. As I gave him my papers I said that he must of known that I was doing 15 miles an hour if he was behind me. He took my paper work and came back with 4 tickets including careless driving which came with 2 points and a high fine and driving without a license. The next day I called and consulted with 5 different attorneys. I choose to hire Pasquale because he came across the most self-assured. He explained to me what he was going to do and what outcome I could expect. While I know there are no guarantees, I already felt protected by his confidence. On court date, Pasquale had my careless driving reduce to a much lesser charge with no points and my driving without a license to not having it on my possession (keep me from a 6 month suspension and 3 years of $250 yearly insurance surcharges) and dismissed the 2 other tickets. The money in fines, points and surcharges Pasquale saved me was well over what I paid him for his services. Hiring him was the right decision and a good investment.

Was facing a drug charge for a year and a point ticket
I was facing a drug charge for possession of less than 5 grams for a year and points on my liscense for running a red light. I needed his help because I facing the prime of my year as becoming a senior and I couldn't have this on my background as a social work major because I was going into doing my internship to finish off my year. Thanks to him, He was able to get the charges dismissed and have my point ticket turn into a no point ticket. I praise God everyday for him because he saved my education and now I have been accepted into my internship. Thank you Pasquale Vella. Keep changing lives.

Excellence
Mr. Vella was able to keep me from having 4 points added to my license which would have cost me a lot on insurance and problems for work. I am so grateful to him for his professional expertise. Thank you for being the greatest.

Recommend with full endorsement.
Pasquale Vella has been our attorney twice. Within a one month period of time, two of my sons were involved in incidents that resulted in traffic court. In both incidents, Pasquale was knowledgeable, accessible, diligent and thorough. In one case, he was able to have the charges against my son reduced significantly and eliminated the option of my sons having a permanent record. In the other case, he was able to get all of the significant charges against my other son completely dismissed! What an amazing sense of peace his expertise brought to me as the parent! Furthermore, his confidence in the courtroom is both comforting and assuring. Outside of the courtroom, he is simultaneously personable and professional when providing consultation. In short, he is a superb attorney that I would recommend without any hesitations and with full endorsement.

Meticulous
I had a case, that if found guilty, could have changed my life in terms of my career. There was evidence that the prosecution had, but my lawyer meticulously went through the paperwork from the case and found out there were items missing from the discovery, and he made numerous attempts to recover them from the prosecution. They didn’t have it and it was my right for my lawyer to have these documents, to properly defend me. And due to this, He got my charges dismissed!! I will choose this lawyer over and over again. He is young, handsome, knows his stuff and He graduated from Syracuse Law. If you want a lawyer that actually does the Work choose Mr Pasquale Vella. He rocks!!!

The Best
Contacting Pasquale Vella when i had gotten a DUI in 2016 was one of my best decisions. He had gotten all my other tickets tossed however I had to take responsibility for the DUI. He is down to earth, understanding and never judges you for anything! I am comfortable coming to him for any of my legal needs! I highly recommend this man & believes he has the best interest for his customers!

That’s what I call a good lawyer!
About a year ago due to some personal problems one night I managed to get myself a speeding ticket, a reckless driving ticket, a DUI, a refusing BAC and few more tickets. This was the first time of my life that I got myself in trouble with law and it was really bad. Next morning of my arrest I knew I was in deep trouble this was going to affect my life deeply. I started to plan damage control and start consult some attorneys, after few consultations I’ve met Mr. Vella and I hired him on the spot without any hesitation, he was the only one understood my situation and work with me to get the less damage possible by defending me. And he did not disappoint me, he managed to prolong my cases to give me enough time to prepare my self to pay for my behavior, and he got me out with the less damage possible. Anyone I’ve talked to told me I was looking minimum 12 months suspension but he managed to get me out with 90 days DUI suspension and drop everything else. Thanks to him I was able to get back on my feet and continue my life normally.

Got me out of 2 DWIs!
About six months ago I managed to receive two DWIs in one week. I prepared to lose my license for a year or more, and was certain that there was no way out of these charges. Pasquale was able to get my first DWI reduced to a reckless driving charge and the second DWI reduced to talking on a cell phone and unable to provide proper insurance. Pasquale is truly an amazing lawyer and I highly recommend him. I can confidently say that I would not have beat either DWI without the knowledge and professionalism of Pasquale.

Absolutely Amazing Lawyer
I was very lucky to have been referred to Pasquale last year. Unfortunately, some struggles I faced led me to find myself in trouble, with multiple arrest and pretty serious motor vehicle violations/DWIs. I truly believed that the life I had spent years building with my wife was over, until meeting Pasquale. On our first meeting I instantly knew I was in the right hands. His professionalism, experience and positivity allowed me to put my full trust in him. Pasquale has put many hours and much effort into providing the best outcome for me. With a few cases already closed, I am fortunate enough to be left with a conditional discharge, no lengthy loss of license or DWI charges and minor fines. I am very confident that Pasquale will continue to put in the same effort, with similar results, for my remaining cases. I highly recommend Pasquale to anyone looking for a down to earth, loyal and trustworthy attorney with a deep knowledge of the system.

Very helpful, very personable
Mr. Vella spoke with confidence and assured me that he would be able to help me out of the situation I was in. I had violated the terms of my conditionary discharge for a first time offense of marijuana possession by testing positive for marijuana. A minor crime considering the punishments I was facing, before speaking to him, I was worried of losing my license or facing actual probation. Rather, Mr. Vella eased my anxiety, spoke to me on a human to human level, and managed to get me re-entered into the program for a simple three months more. He was also very reasonable with his payment options. I'm very satisfied with his service and would recommend him to anyone I know looking for help.

Distinguished attorney...Excellent experience...Highly recommend
I had the good fortune of Mr. Pasquale Vella representing me two years ago in a matter that I had deemed a bleak one, with no positive outcome in sight. Vella assured me that he would work hard to get me the best results possible, and that is exactly what he did. He worked tirelessly making sure he covered all possible angles, and in the end I was extremely pleased with his services. Vella proved to be diligent, aggressive in yielding results, and very professional, all while maintaining a communicative yet good natured rapport with me as his client. I would most certainly use his services again in the future as well as highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.

My experience
On May 5th I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Pasquale Vella. I was impressed by his work with a client in court that day and asked for his assistance on my case. He offered me his card and asked me if I would speak with him outside to discuss my case. Within moments I felt relieved and more confident about my case. Mr. Vella made the process of my case very simple and considerably less stressful for me. He answered any questions I had durning my case. He followed through on exactly what he had told me he would accomplish and how my case would play out. I was very pleased with the results of my case and would recommend his services.

Great Attorney! Highly Recommend!
Pasquale Vella got me out of getting 2 points on my license. He was very knowledgeable and knew his away around the system. He made you feel at ease and explained the whole process to you. He was always available to answer your questions and made sure you understood everything. When we went to court he was able to downgrade my ticket to a lesser charge and I only had to pay a small penalty. I would highly recommend him!!

Great Lawyer
I had a speeding ticket, along with two other minor traffic tickets, in which the two were dismissed and the speeding ticket received no points. Pat made the process easy and made me earn his trust in knowing my case will be resolved in a timely manner.
