ACS case successfully appealed!
Recently, my beloved 1st daughter passed away unexpectedly in her crib. My wife and I woke up to see our beloved daughter unresponsive. This is def. the hardest time in our life. While dealing with grief, ACS shows up the same day. We were clueless to their agenda because we were dealing with overwhelming sadness. They said they were there to help us. Honestly it was foolish of me to not pay closer attention to them. Next thing you know, they wanted to indicate us on “inadequate parenting”. Basically implying that we didnt do enough for our daughter which is a slanderous false lie. As her father I made it my mission to free my wife and I of false charges. I looked up many lawyers, but Discioarro kept standing out. With prayer, intuition, and gut feeling, I decided to ring him. He called back immediately and gave me an appointment the next day!. In the appointment he heard our circumstances and assured me to not listen to anything they say and how he will take care of it. He charged fairly and is understanding. He did exactlyas he said he woult. I didnt even have to go to a hearing. He appealed and it was automatically accepted. I truly thank him for his service and I recommend him to anyone in NY dealing with the acs aka agency of corrupt services. Its ok to be afraid, but fight back! Discioarro will fight with you.

I cannot thank this man enough for his exceptional work on my case. He showed constant support and reassurance throughout the entire process, easing my mind during what could have been a very stressful time. His expertise and dedication ultimately led to my case being dismissed. I am truly grateful for his hard work and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you so much for everything!

My Champion
I had some issues with the agency, and i was threatened with arrest and possibly imprisonment for false accusations. I searched online for a lawyer to help me and all signs led me to Michael. I first watch a video he had posted on his website that spoke to me and my situation on top of that I had reached out to multiple lawyers/firms at around 7-8pm on a Wednesday night and Michael was the only one who answered my call and gave me some advice and an appointment the NEXT DAY!!. Before long he was on my case and walked me through the process and what to expect, I expressed my concerns and Micheal was very reassuring and let me know he will do his best to provide the results I wanted. All I can say if you are in any issues with the agency give Michael a call, very knowledgeable and priced fairly. Thank you Micheal for helping me maintain my family unit and my future. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

We hired Mr. Michael Discioarro to assist with an ACS case against my family. He was always available when needed questions answered. He always kept us informed on the status of the case. Lastly, he was always professional throughout the process. We could not get through this process without his help. I would definitely refer him to my friends and family if his services are ever needed.

Best Criminal Lawyer in NYC
I am a professional that was accused of bogus charges that could have ruined my career and could have led to my incarceration. I was arrested for these charges. Due to Michael’s strenuous representation my case was dismissed after the second Court appearance. Michael kept me informed about the status of my case, answered all my calls, was always readily available to speak and calmed my fears when they came up. The advice he gave me on what to do after my arrest was priceless. Michael always answered my questions very clearly and his positive attitude kept me calm in a very tumultuous time of my life. I am forever grateful.

I hired Michael for a business matter and we was hands down the best attorney I’ve ever worked with. He’s extremely responsive, incredibly knowledgeable and hard working. He cares about his clients and will be my first and only call the next time I need legal support.

I got a great lawyer and now I can relax. Thank you!!
I came to Michael with questions on my character and fitness application for bar admission. When the results of an application dictate your future, you need a professional to make sure that application is done right. Michael addressed all of my concerns and eliminated my stress. His fees are extremely reasonable. Michael is kind, funny, professional, and reliable. If your bar application is causing you any kind of stress, talk to Michael. Great attorney and great guy.

Dismissed
I am thrilled to write that Mike got my frivolous ACS case dismissed. The first day I walked in his office, he read the petition, looked at me and said “go live your life”. My anxiety was running rampant but he did his job. We never had to go to court in-person (only virtual) and he made sure I didn’t sign up for any ACS services. He also handled the ‘indicated’ report issued to me by ACS. So if you’re in need of legal guidance, I would absolutely recommend him to defend your interest.

The best lawyer against ACS
ACS was forcing us to take their services that were not needed. This lawyer helped us and protected us against ACS. Our case is unfounded and we won. This lawyer knows what he’s doing and is professional.

Right on target
Mike came through just when I needed him to. I had a case with ACS that was going to court the next day for a emergency removal. I called Mike for the first time, the morning of the case , and he took the case right away, I did even pay him yet, until later that day after the first hearing. We fought the case all the way through and finally got the case dismissed (ACS WAS PISSED OFF). Mike was a Godsend. Thanks MIKE! -SL

Awesome
I like how professional Michael is and how he kept track of my case. Michael doesn’t lack or forgets about the client, he is very responsible.I had a child with a man who would use acs as a weapon against me to have me under his sleeves.Every other year he would take me to court and call acs on me back to back he wanted my attention and didn’t want to pay child support because I denied him taxes since child lived with me . I later in the future wanted a better future for myself away from all that negativity but the past always follows you.When I would go and apply for jobs where there were kids or elderly my Acs past cases would show up and I wouldn’t qualify for the job.There was a pattern on the times this loser used the system to harm me, so it was hard for me to get hired in certain places.Even though I was never found guilty in none of my cases, none of my drug test ever came back positive and I always comply with what was said to be done by Acs.Honestly, I’m so glad I picked Michael because he stood by me to help me out with my case and he believed there was a solution to my situation.I would recommend Michael in the future to any person I know because I believe he loves what he does as a lawyer!!!!Thank you….

I found Michael online and from the very beginning he was able to educate me on the ACS process. He was able to help guide me through their crazy procedures. He was very patient and always a call away. When they visited my home he was there on facetime defending me from their little traps (they have a sick way of trying to trap you). They asked for a “supervised family meeting” one day for no reason we went in and he roared like a lion. They backed down and they are closing this out. I gave five stars if I could give ten I definitely would! You have ACS problems don’t even hesitate to call Michael.
