Excellent experience
Michael expeditiously overturned all 4 ACS indications without even going to trial. Minimum paperwork at a great price! Thank you

ACS case- Honest review
Found Michael online and did some research. The other reviews didn’t matter to me because I rather meet the individual, do a consult then decide from there. I called Michael after my legal aid team wasn’t doing a good job on my case. He invited me to his office that same day and was nice enough to wait a little while until I can get out off work. I looked a hot mess when I arrived and it was obvious I was going through a lot. I didn’t even have all the money to retain him but we worked out a Payment plan so I can get the rest. He alwaysssss showed up to my hearing and was on time. Well spoken and super responsive to all my messages. I had a very complex case with ACS and so many service providers involved. He stayed on top of everything. He even checked in on occasion to see how I was doing and always stuck to goal. Get the child back home. ACS can be bullies and Michael wasn’t having it! He’s not scared of the judges and know his stuff. He also very polite which I appreciate. This type of work is hard and it not easy finding a good attorney. Michael was fanatic to work with. My case will soon be closed because we got what we needed and ACS ain’t get smack!!!!

Excellent
Michael Discioarro handled my DWI case and I have nothing but amazing things to say. After our initial meeting I didn’t have to worry about anything. He kept me updated on my case and even sent me reminders of my court dates. He was always on time, prepared and professional. I would definitely recommend him as an attorney to any of my family and friends. Completely satisfied.

THE BEST
I remember walking into Michael’s office, scared, almost trembling, and confused. By the time I left, I had confidence and assurance that everything was going to be ok, and IT WAS. Michael kept me in the loop with everything. I was able to call him any time, day or night. He gets things DONE. I highly recommend Michael to anyone who is in need of a family lawyer. You will not regret it. Thank you Michael. You gave me back my peace of mind.

Character and fitness
Michael gave me extremely thorough advice on how to best handle my character and fitness concerns for both law school admissions and for bar admittance. The very first part of his plan actually solved my entire issue and this serves as a testament to his knowledge and experience. Would highly recommend him for character and fitness concerns.

Amazing Defense and ACS Attorney
Mike is an amazing, patient, responsive attorney that is a beast in the courtroom. He went above and beyond for me and my family and fought until the end. He got ACS off our backs and we had no need to associate with them at all. He took care of everything. He is highly respected in the DA’s office and court system in general. If you want to win, don’t hesitate to hire him. You won’t regret it.

Magician
Mr. Discioarro represented and defended my business after the city’s attempt to revoke my license. I now refer to him as “Magic Mike”, once he began advocating for me my problems disappear like magic.

THE PREMIER ACS ATTORNEY IN NEW YORK!!
There should not be any other consideration for ACS Defense! If you want to ensure the best possible Defense against any ACS investigation than Michael is the man to call. Well worth the PRICE if you want a valid chance against the bureaucracy of this malicious City organization.....Communication was excellent regardless of time of day and night. He tackled 2 ACS city workers and eventually case was UNFOUNDED!! Just hire Michael for your family's sake !

PHENOMENAL LAWYER!
I highly recommend Michael Discioarro as your lawyer he is very efficient and was hands on with my case . ACS tried to destroy my family but with Michael’s assistance we did not have to deal with ACS at all . He made sure they were not allowed to speak to us and only to the children. He always answered all my calls and texts no matter what time or day . He was on point with all court dates and with ACS and their lies and tricks . Michael even listen to me complain and cry during my court process. We are forever in dept with Micheal Discioarro I highly recommend him as a lawyer he was a gift from God to my family .
