Saved me from the impossible NYC criminal justice system
Steve went out of his way to make sure justice was fairly served for my case. The state was seeking something far greater than I was willing to accept and steve kept pushing until we were able to come up with an agreement with the DA.

Excellent Lawyer!
Had a Felony 2 charge for possession of a firearm in NYC (was visiting from out of state) and Mr. Steve managed to negotiate an ACD for me (Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal) - really the best possible outcome!

Insightful and Diligent
Steve was recommended to by an attorney that I trust and came on a Sunday with short notice. He worked diligently to gather evidence and communicate effectively with the DA eliminate risk. The case was dismissed and the records sealed, all at a reasonable cost for three court appearances. What more could be asked for?

Excellent Attorney
There isn't enough words to put how wonder Mr. Metcafe is. So responsible and with you every step of the way. The professionalism is outstanding and is he very honest. He truly cares for his clients and will do his very best to get the greatest results. I was truly nervous and anxious throughout the whole process. Mr. Metcalf was very reassuring, and would spend countless hours speaking to me on the phone and texting me to make sure that I was okay. At the end of the process he did exactly what he wanted to do, and that is to get my case dismissed! Never in my life did I put such faith into someone and he was worth it all. I would recommend him to everyone, truly a decision that you will not regret. I am beyond happy and pleased to have went with my services with Mr. Steven Metcafe.

Zealous attorney with a heart of gold
Mr. Metcalf has handled many of my issues. He is an extremely reliable, reasonable and kind attorney. He has fought zealously since the day he was retained. Mr. Metcalf and his team are outstanding! Steven is a sharp strategist and truly cares for his clients. I always felt that my needs were met and that the firm was invested in me and my case. They were easily accessible, got back to me quickly, aggressive and got me the results that I wanted.

Our Glimmer of Hope
Words cannot begin to express or describe the respect and appreciation I have for Mr. Metcalf. My spouse was in a recent situation where we'd pretty much lost all hope and accepted the fact that he would be charged with a felony, do time and to top it off get deported. At the last second a week and a half before his final court date, my mom and I were referred to Mr. Metcalf. From the get go he kept it 100% real with us. He was very knowledgeable and professional and truly had my spouse's best interest at heart. He went above and beyond to fight for us always keeping us abreast with the situation and allowing us to weigh our options to do what's best for him(my spouse) without pressure. To make a long story short he pretty much took our hopeless Supreme Court case and turned it into a hopeful and successful outcome. It couldn't have worked out any better and wouldn't have worked out the way it did without Steven. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. If you're looking for someone to brush you off and give you only what the D.A.'s office is offering then Steven is not your man. But if you're looking for a true professional who will fight until the end even when your situation looks gloom and after you've just given up...then Mr. Metcalf is absolutely the one for you.

Absolutely wonderful!
I was acquitted with Steven Metcalf as I ran into an incident. I was instantly relieved working with Steven as he walked me through everything. I was quite nervous and anxious during the whole process. Steven was very caring and professional. To give me proper reassurance, Steven and I hosted different conference calls with family members while he explained and updated on the case itself. In the end, the outcome was better than I expected! I have my full faith in Steven and I hope others will as well.

Excellent services
As an exchange student from Europe, I ran into some drug related issues while studying in NYC. I contacted Florian Bruno, who works together with Steven on many cases. Steven took excellent care of my case. Communication was always on point and he did everything he could to achieve the best outcome. This is what happened in the end, the best possible outcome was achieved for me - this made me very happy and I am glad that I had Steven on my side.

You're in good hands
Steven represented myself and wife, to stop an ex-family ,now, from harassing our family members. We explained to Steve what our problems were, and he jumped on it. He got us an order to have harassment stopped, and it happened fast, in hours. Everything is peaceful in our house again. Excellent attorney and a gentleman.

All I can say is, CASE DISMISSED !
Steven is on top of his game, highly professional and brings great judgment and integrity to such matters. He is efficient and cost-effective. I am located on Long Island, and he took the time to travel such a distance to represent me. I highly recommend Steven to represent you!

What a lawyer is supposed to be.
Honesty and integrity should describe every officer of the Court. Unfortunately, it doesn't. Steven is a rare example of what an attorney should be. He recognized the tricks and traps set by my opposition, and courageously stopped them. He went out of his way to bring the truth to light in my case, when the truth did not seem to interest the Court. Thank you Steven.

If you Want a Gentleman Rottweiler to Save your Life and Lay waste to your Opponents, Mr. Metcalf is your Lawyer
Formidable lawyer with superb litigation judgment, pragmatic, doesn’t waste client’s time nor money, keeps things as simple as reasonably possible and is excellent value for money – all the things which most lawyers aren’t. I've consulted with Mr. Metcalf on a complex litigation matter and he proved to be an endless source of great legal advice and support, both personally and professionally. He’s always been brilliant and I’ve recommended him to a ton of friends and colleagues – everyone is happy! And that’s one of Mr. Metcalf’s talents, somehow he makes this legal work almost an enjoyable experience

Exceptional Attorney!
Steven Metcalf is the most honest and informative attorney I have ever worked with! He is extremely attentive and when I need him he always makes himself available, unlike other attorneys. I highly recommend Steven as he is the epitome of integrity!

Great lawyer
Hello my name is anthony and i am represented by Steven Alan Metcalf. I want to start off by saying that Steven has made a huge contribution towards my case. He has worked day in and day out to ensure the best deal possible, hes kept me informed at all times so i never feel in the dark and has gone above and beyond to help me. He has a charasmatic charm that makes the judges, probation officers, and even the police love him. I have seen many attorneys and the way they go about things but there is something about steven that seperates him from the rest. If you want a great, hardworking lawyer then Steven Alan Metcalf is your man.

Exceptional Attorney!! Unmatched service.
I have lived in New York City for over 20 years and have never had the need for a Criminal Attorney, or any kind for that matter. While pursuing my career goals, I chose to sublease one of bedroom in my apartment to a friend of mine, that resulted in nothing less than a nightmare. I felt hopeless, scared, and devastated as I have never been in a situation like that before. I was referred to Mr. Metcalf, whom took on my criminal matters and gave me complete peace of mind. Mr. Metcalf was knowledgeable of the law, punctual, pleasant and professional. Today, I am truly happy that I went with the services of Mr. Steven Metcalf, and that the above is now a thing of the past.

Excellent attorney, very knowledgeable. I will never refer anyone else again except for him.
I was very impressed with Stevens professionalism in addition to his interpersonal skills. He is very knowledgeable and takes pride in his work. Steven has been wonderful. He is an attorney who cares and puts 110% into what he is doing. He very successfully represented a member of my immediate family. I have consulted with him on other issues as well regarding civil and family court issues, where he has always given excellent advice. He returns calls in a very reasonable time frame. He is reliable and a man of his word. If you need an attorney I highly recommend meeting with Steven for a consult before retaining anyone else.

Best NYC attorney !
Steven Metcalf got both of my cases dismissed with ease. His skills in communication got my warrants and bail thrown out. If you are looking for an attorney to deal with a criminal issue, then give Steve Metcalf a call.
