Excellent Lawyer
Michael Block has been helping the Driver community for a lot of years now I’m a professional cab driver and I’ve been using Mr. Michael services for quite some time now I gave out a lot of my summons to other lawyers but Mr. Michael has fought so hard for my summonses Andrew received the best possible outcome for my tickets I would prefer and recommend Mr. Michael to my fellow drivers or anyone for that matter best Lawyer there is ever in Manhattan Mr. Michael. The thing that attracted me to Mr. Michael is his vast knowledge of the law practice is in New York other Lawyers don’t have that. And his staff is so friendly and accommodating I’m a driver and they accommodate the Driver community very well. Thank you for your services Mr. Michael

Excellent
I received a reckless driving summons on 9/1/22 for just rolling through a stop sign. There weren't any other cars nor pedestrians near the crosswalk and it was a one-way, left-turn only lane. I was speechless, because there were other cars doing the same thing and I was the only one that got pulled over for some reason. Anyways, instead of handing me a traffic violations ticket, the idiot cop gave me a VTL1212 ticket, which is a misdemeanor. Are you kidding me? Just for rolling through a stop sign, does that make you a criminal? I was speechless and beyond anxious. This was the first time I received a criminal summons, just for running a stop sign. I eventually found Michael Block by a google search and he was the only one that called to say that he had ample experience with reckless driving summonses. That gave me the reassurance that I needed and then I retained his services quickly. An attorney from his office represented me in criminal court and got great results! From a VTL1212 (misdemeanor) -- which carries 5 points, a criminal record, and over $150 in fines -- down to 0 points, no criminal record, and just a $50 fine. Most likely, having a clean and unblemished record helped, but Mr. Block got it all the way down to 0 points! That was indeed great news. The lawyer's fee was very reasonable, compared to others. And whenever I sent an email with an inquiry (many times), I received a response quickly. I couldn't be more content and satisfied with his services. When the time comes when I need a lawyer again -- which I'm hoping it won't -- I'll be calling him again. I highly recommend Michael Block and his office.

I got reckless driving ticket in Manhattan which is one the worst tickets anyone could face. Not only it carries out 5 points it’s also criminal offense.

I drive Uber for living so I need to get this ticket dismissed.as Michael block helped with my first two tickets he did again and reduced this ticket to $100 fine. Thanks

Great result!!!!
I just wanted to let everyone know what a great job the Law Office of Michael Block did for my family. My son got a speeding ticket and was subject to getting 4 points on his record. The Law Office of Michael Block was successful in pleading this down to absolutely no points and a minimum fine. Great work!! So happy I used them! I would highly recommend them for anyone with a traffic violation.

This guy is a beast.
hit and run, inadequate brakes, unreasonable speed, following to closely and unsafe lane change tickets... context... my breaks gave out hit a car in the rain and I got scared and tried to leave... although there was no cop there so only thing they could really prove was l3aving the scene. I knew with out a lawyer though that they would've got me for all of those... Michael block took my case the day literally before court was... so he dealt with me being super super last minute... so I gotta call today saying the brakes violation was removed and the other 4 were knocked down to Jay walking and i just have to pay 250 per. unheard of... this guy is the real deal... he really saved my behind!!! Facing 2k in fines and 10 points... knocked down to 0 points and 1000.... if your looking for a lawyer to smash your case... this is the guy!!!

Best Traffic Lawyer in NYC
This is the best traffic law firm in NYC. By far & I've used several. I had 3 traffic tickets due in court, within the last month. And, I am a taxi driver, so my livelihood demand I have a clear license. Of those tickets, two were found NOT-GUILTY and the other successfully delayed until October. They did a Great Job!!!

Saved Me 5 Points off my license!
I had an excellent experience with Michael Block. I was facing losing my license for 6 months over a bogus "driving while texting" ticket. Michael Block made it go away and for this I am extremely grateful. Dealing with his office was easy and extremely low maintenance. Once I hired him he just took care of the rest. Highly recommended.
