Michael S. Discioarro services is what they call "money well spent."
It was very reassuring to have my case handled by some one who is willing to take blows for me and fight back with knowledge of the law. Thank you Micheal...every phone call after the first just got easier and easier. I wish you much success, and my family thanks you.

After careful research, I chose Mike to represent my family and I against false claims presented to my wife and I by ACS (animals) and thank god we did because this agency doesn't want to help your family they want to twist your every word and tear apart your family! We had nothing to hide so we first dealt with these animals (ACS) in good faith but soon noticed how these unprofessional uneducated case workers twisted our every word and even made up a few things along the way, that's when I had enough fearful of my family being teared apart by these animals I hired Mike. As soon as I walked in his office I felt the "power" he was giving me! And knew then and there things would be alright. Immediately after this office visit the constant calls, visits and harassment from the animals (ACS) STOPPED and soon thereafter case DISMISSED! Do yourself and your family a favor DO NOT speak to these animals they do not want to help they just want to pad their BUDGET at the expense of your family. Get Mike on your side and watch these animals (ACS) scurry away and feel the power back on your side.

Please forgive any typos or grammatical errors - I wanted to write this off the top of my head so it could be as earnest as possible and come from the true emotional joy Mike gave me and my family:
I don't know where best to begin with how great it was to work with Mike. I started online, like most people do in a crisis that they can't simply ask friends for help with...And I found Mike, surrounded by his numerous positive (and accurate!) reviews online. Thank GOD! I could see very early that he was really going to help me and my family, but most importantly treat us as more than just clients...Like a family who needs help and doesn't know where to turn.
Truth be told, he might seem like a tough cookie when you talk to him but THAT IS THE KIND OF ATTORNEY YOU NEED!!! Don't be fooled by the ones who try and sound all nice and only want your money. Seriously, I have been absolutely screwed before because of that. Not with Mike - He was relentless; Keen and experienced enough to know how to "play ball" with an awful and tormenting ACS investigation that my family had to go through, and aggressive enough to protect us in every way. I will tell anyone who is going through this type of problem in their life that it is terrible, enough to bring a grown man to tears on multiple occasions (me). But what you need is someone strong and aggressive to handle these people! There is so much manipulation involved on the side of ACS - they can be a very cruel and inhuman organization, which prides itself on TEARING FAMILIES APART! I was fearful for my child and the many terrible outcomes I've read and heard about online...all of which Mike was aware of. But Mike was FIRM! - he tore into ACS in a professional manner and DID NOT LET UP. We gave ACS the bare minimum of what we had for their terrible investigation but MIKE MADE SURE WE DID NOT HAVE TO DO AN OUNCE MORE THAN WE WERE COMFORTABLE WITH and we came out on top! ACS first tried to close the case with a BOGUS indication of child abuse (indication is the term used to mean guilty, in other words). Mike jumped on them that day (In fact, he responds to everything immediately, and even helped me while he was on vacation at one point - God, I can't say enough good things about this man's character).
So anyway, Mike fought them on the indication and weeks later (only weeks later because ACS takes FOREVER to torture you) I received a letter in the mail that ACS was going to amend the indication and remove it completely off our record. Of course, because there never should have been one!
Thank GOD for Mike - I would recommend him, without hesitation, for anything he does! His experience, character, and flawless approach left us with a win!!!
From one parent to the next, this man saved our family and you should look to him to help save yours if, God forbid, you are in a similar crisis.
THANK YOU SO MUCH MIKE! GOD BLESS YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

Michael is a great man and more specifically a great lawyer, after being arrested for a DWI in New York, I thought I was done for and I would have to spend time in jail. Michael helped me through the entire process, showing me what I needed to do to beat the case as best as possible. He was upfront and honest with me and told me what will happen and how things were to turn out. I did what I had to do, going through an alcohol program, fixing my driver's license and showing up for ever court appearance. After numerous court appearances, the case was dropped down to a traffic infraction. I felt relieved and happy to know that I only had to pay a $300 fine. I've kept in contact with Mike ever since and even referring him to others that got caught up one night. Thanks again Michael

My case was very complicated and with Micheal's expertise, I won my case. He is very thorough and does his research to get his clients the results they desire. You can call on him anytime and he is sure to get back to you in a timely manner, which shows his dedication to his clients. I highly recommend Micheal to anyone that needs the kind of lawyer that will go the extra mile. He's the best hands down!

If you have been contacted by ACS, consider them your worst nightmare. I've been stepped all over by them and was labeled as a child abuser when I have never done anything to harm my baby. If you have an open cps case please do yourself a favor and hire Michael. Michael has saved my career, my child, my dignity and innocence.

He met with us on a weekend night. Told us not to worry it would be fine ... He was always on time which meant no unnecessary waiting. In court. Case got dismissed and we were all happy. Great guy

A colleague of mine was falsely accused of child abuse & was being harassed by the ACS. He said that once he hired Michael he never heard from them again. His case was dismissed. He said that Michael was very professional & took care of his case in a timely manner. I had a similar experience. My DUI charge was recently dismissed. I felt very confident with Michael's expertise & knowledge of the legal system. Michael is a very professional no frills defense attorney. I would recommend him to anyone.

When every other lawyer told me I was to plea down, Micahael took the cases and fought every step of the way! He charged one reasonable fee and never asked me for another dime even though he had to travel from Manhattan to Staten Island ever court date. He got my DUI dropped to a disorderly conduct ticket! I recommend him to anyone seriously looking to defend themselves!!! THE BEST
