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.
