Eric was extremely professional and helpful with his services. His communication was excellent and really only provided the best news! His years of experience were vital to the resolution of my case and I would absolutely use his services again if needed, 10/10!

Mr. Arnone represented my son in a firearms case. My son made a mistake in not knowing about the firearms laws of New York since he was born and raised in Texas. Mr. Arnone was very sympathetic to my son's situation and made sure that the family was informed of any updates, since the family is in Texas. He even took time out on Eater Sunday to speak with the family by phone about my son's situation and what he would to for him. I was very impressed by that gesture. Not many people would take time out on a holiday to do that. Mr. Arnone was successful in my son's case and I would recommend him in an instant.

Our 21 year old son was arrested at La Guardia airport in NY for two felonies. He was traveling from Connecticut to Texas via La Guardia airport. We were frantic, scared and didn't know what to do. We finally found the AVVO website and contacted nine attorneys on April 21, 2019 (Easter) asking them for help. Eric was the first attorney to respond on Easter for a consultation... only one other attorney contacted us that same day. Eric, unlike the other attorney that contacted us, immediately set our mind at ease by giving us a detailed account of the NY law and his view on what we could expect going forward. He was professional, knowledgeable, calm, thorough, and so very caring about how we were feeling. We hired him. We are a large family and on most calls Eric had about five family members at one time on the calls. He also timely responded to emails from all five family members. He always remained professional and very patient with all of us. Ultimately, Eric was able to negotiate with the Assistant District Attorney to dismiss both felonies. We are so very thankful to Eric for all he did for our son. We couldn't have found a better attorney...we were blessed with Eric.

One year ago, my son was falsely accused of a horrific crime by an obsessed "friend" who filed a fabricated claim against him with his university's Title IX office. We quickly realized that a Title IX process does not follow a "presumption of innocence" standard and we needed help. I began to research top NYC lawyers.
I was immediately impressed by Eric's credentials, particularly his success as a prosecutor. This was important as the complainant had long been harassing and blackmailing my son in an attempt to coerce him to remain in the relationship as well as threatening him with filing this false claim out of vengeance. We needed someone with a measured yet aggressive approach to challenge the allegation and bring forth the truth.
I was concerned that a Title IX case would be too insignificant for Eric relative to his scope of work, but I sent a brief synopsis of our situation via the Galluzzo and Arnone website in hopes of a response. Within 20 minutes I was on the phone with Eric; there was no need to contact anyone else. I was instantly comforted by Eric's warmth and compassion. Eric took a few days to thoroughly review the extensive record of threatening communications my son had been subjected to and they met; my son too was relieved by the fact that he was in the right hands.
Eric's comforting demeanor is surpassed only by his legal brilliance. Eric preemptively laid the groundwork with local authorities should this situation go beyond the university. Eric went over every option and the impact each might present if we chose to go outside the university to address the illegal harassment of which my son was victim. Eric detailed in layman's terms the legal process involved, formulated a concise approach to deal specifically with the distinct and often confusing Title IX process and outlined every point that could present a hurdle. Eric accompanied my son at every meeting and because Title IX prohibits the release of their written reports, Eric thoroughly documented specific concerns he instinctively knew the investigators were focusing on and we needed to address. Eric was exact in keeping each submission on point, editing and optimizing the impact of each response by directly challenging the increasingly uncredible claims by the complainant and the errors and misplaced assumptions of the investigators. There were critical points that neither my son nor I thought of that Eric insightfully brought out which I am certain made the difference. The truth prevailed; the claim was unsubstantiated, the complainant deemed uncredible and guilty of harassment as well as abusing Title IX as a means to retaliate against my son and was sanctioned by the university as a result.
We fight on. The complainant was allowed to levy additional retaliatory claims of verbal abuse. Eric put together an appropriately aggressive appeal, refuting each new fabrication, outlining the procedural errors in the investigation and challenging the false assumptions within the Title IX report; it was masterful. We are optimistically hopeful.
Our smartest decision was connecting with Eric Arnone. Not once have we felt our case was minimized relative to Eric's other cases and if I didn't know better, I would think our case was his one priority. Eric's prompt responsiveness and detailed knowledge of our case has been phenomenally impeccable; he amazes us. Eric also worked with us to tailor our account to reflect the phased setup of the Title IX process; he and his office have been most accommodating and generously understanding.
Another reviewer references Eric in terms of friend; it's true. Not only is he a most professional and brilliant lawyer, Eric is exceedingly relatable. Eric Arnone is the friend who has your legal back at every turn. Eric made what seemed impossible, possible. The depth of this family's enduring gratitude cannot be adequately expressed in the following two word, but I will say them regardless, Eric - THANK YOU!

I hired Eric July of 2018 after consulting with many different lawyers. My case was a somewhat difficult case and Eric was able to fight his way through and do what is the best for me to achieve the best results. I was able to get off with no jailtime/probation. He is very responsive with emails and calls and was able to answer all my concerns and questions very clearly. On top of everything that a lawyer should be doing, he genuinely cared for my well-being and stayed in contact with me even after the case was over to check up from time to time. Eric has gone above and beyond in his care and have made the process as easy for me as possible.

I hired Mr. Arnone in May of 2017. He took a disastrous situation and really made it as painless as possible. He was able to reduce a potential felony Aggravated Assault to a Harassment Violation in just a few months. On top of that he was always immediately responsive to me and my family and was non-judgemental in his interactions with us. He is a great advocate.

I called his firm the night before, which I highly advise against, and by the next day with quick responses and genuine concern, he met me at the court office. Thoroughly explained the options I had and the scale and order in which we wanted them. And we got the best outcome. Thank you!!

Approximately a year ago my 16 year old son was charged with two class C felony and one class B felony.
He was also being charged as an Adult.
My son was facing 20 plus years if convicted.
His mum and I knew the charges were fabricated but how were we going to prove his innocence.
We met with Eric Arnone and he listened to my sons side of the story and realized that this was a fabricated charge by the so called victim.
BUT, we had to prove to the District Attorney that these events and charges were false.
Eric went full force to prove these allagations were false and hired an investigator to collect the facts and evidence to prove my son was innocent.
Long story short, because of Eric's tenacity and perseverance all three felony charges against my son were dropped.
Eric was relentless in going after the facts and proving to the District Attorney that my son was innocent of these charges.
Eric I can't thank you enough for your support and answering all our phone calls, emails and texts within minutes, and for the reassurance that this would end exactly as you said it would from the start.
Eric, Thank you, thank you, thank you, Beyond.

Throughout the entire process Eric's experience, professionalism and knowledge was impressive and very reassuring. It was clear from the beginning that he had a genuine concern for the outcome my case and was always available to provide clear answers to any questions. His desire to understand all aspects of the situation and apply his years of experience as a District Attorney to achieve the best possible resolution was unwavering. I would certainly put my trust in Eric again and highly recommend him.

Eric explained all aspects of this case in detail. He was very timely in all correspondence. He put me at ease knowing what to expect for my daughter. What also impressed me was the number of court officers who knew him and obviously respected him. I would highly recommend him for your defense.
