Best!!!!!
Justice is hard nut to crack, I was horrified by upcoming legal complication but when I approached Bukh Law Firm, Bukh did a great job on my cases. There were multiple charges and he was able to get most of them dismissed. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney.

Great experience
We hired Arkady after carefully scrutinizing a whole bunch of cybercrime attorneys. He was very experienced and knowledgeable. After he took the case we started to feel the impact immediately. The prosecutors kept decreasing the charges until we settled on something agreeable and manageable. I can highly recommend Arkady Bukh as a cybercrime attorney of choice.

Diminishing complex issues
Arkady (he prefers to be called Ark) convinced me to take the right route in my case. I was not supportive of that plan initially. I wanted to be right. But fortunately I surrendered to his magnitudes of experience and took the advice. As a result, a category B felony was greatly reduced, and I did not hve to serve prison time at all! That's helpful indeed!!! Thank you Ark.

Highly satisfied
Arkady is awesome. I got myself in a legal trouble when someone rushed to save me from a bad mouth and I got somewhere in between. So it ended up with difficulties with law for everyone involved. Arkady and Marina were very caring and helpful. They were realistic and honest. The pricing was a little heavier than I wanted to see, but there is a price for everything. I maintained communication throughout my case. It was eventually tossed. The worry-free life is back! Thank you all for driving me out of this.

Fighter
I was a little hesitant to leave a review, cause hiring a criminal defense attorney isn't something I want to shout online. BUT, Arkady did such a fantastic job with my issue that other help seekers should know that he is the right person. I got into some legal issues and needed a criminal lawyer. My job, my career and my life were literally on the line. I called Arkady after a recommendation from my family and we met that same day. I told him the story and that I was scared to death to lose my job. He listened to it, explained the best and worst case scenario. No promises made. Just asked me to kindly wait till he had a look at the police report before he can tell me what could be done. However, after a thorough examination of the report he told me it's totally different than the account I gave him. Arkady then lodged some motions with the court and we came to know that we were dealing with a "bad cop". That he's faked reports in the past. Arkady advised that the best way forward was to move to trial unless the case was dismissed asap. When the trial day came - rest assured, I was terrified! But guess what - the case was dismissed! I might not be the best advisor but if you look for a talented criminal defense lawyer in New York who will fight and not settle your case, this is your man!

Wow
I had a problem with my traffic ticket that evolved into revocation hearing and possible criminal consequences. Arkady and his colleague Dan were extremely helpful on the phone, so I decided I need them to represent me on the case. Little did I know that I would be vacated on all charges with all privileges reinstalled. This is a truly great law firm.

Simply the best
I hired Bukh for a jailhouse visit to my son who found himself in a very worrysome situation. Being an executive of a New York company doesn't correspond well with time spent on Rikers Island. Immediately after the visit a bail hearing was set and my son was granted a modest bail that we immediately posted and got him released. We hired attorney Bukh to handle the case itself.

Great job
A consult turned into a full-time retainer. Arkady seemed such a powerhorse that I decided to reconcile my finances and cut a check. I am so pleased with the results that I got off this deal. My felony record that I was about to get evaporated. So, I continue with my regular life, thanks to Mr. Bukh.

Outperforming lawyer
Arkady is all set for complex criminal cases, and he is really taking the most of the situation, however bad it might seem. He is surrounded by nice personnel, so at the rare time when he is not there to pick up the phone, they will take care of you. My case took almost half a year to be settled. And it paid off to wait. Great service!

Excellent Firm
I don't have enough words to describe how amazing the experience with Arkady Bukh firm was. I was facing 10-20 years in prison for bank robbery and within 12 month the firm did impossible, I got 5 years of probation. The staff is incredible knowledgeable, always were on top of everything. They were always answering to my phone call, text messages and emails. They believed in positive outcome and proofed to me that they are professional firm. I highly recommend Arkady Bukh team to anyone who is in trouble with a law. Leonid K Queens, NY

Saved my reputation
I can't thank enough Arkady Bukh and his firm. They did magic! I was falsely accused of smth I never did. Arkady's lawyers were able to clear my name and avoid an arrest. It was very stressful and time sensitive situation. Arkady was pretty quick in setting everything up and his support stuff did everything that Arkady instructed them to do. I'm happy that I trusted them. Thank you!
