In March of 2015 I filed a complaint with The Division of Human Rights. I was a homeless Veteran with two pet therapy animals. On 2/12/'15 my two Emotional Support cats and I reluctantly found ourselves in The Department of Homeless Services [DHS]. At first DHS told me that they could provide shelter for me but not my pet therapy animals. That same day I had to go and get verication from my therapist in writing that my animals provided and served a medical purpose and that they were not to be separated from me. The East 30th Street Shelter for Men allowed us into their system and then started hassassing me by telling that my cats could not stay there! I filed a Reasonable Accommodation Complaint because on the 8th day of our stay Mr. John Hammond, Program Director, denied my complaint and forced a two week separation from me and my animals until The Mayor's Alliance for NYC'S Animals advocated for me and my two cats on appeal of Mr. Hammond's decision. I went through two separate DHS Processing Hubs and finally after abuot Three weeks my pet therapy animals and I were relocated inside of DHS'S shelter at Borden Avenue Residence for Veterans. I have a spinal condition and my pets were and still are family to me. I was further harassed at Borden by staff. ANYWAY, IN MARCH 2015 I FILED MY COMPLAINT WITH THE DIVISION OF HUMAN RIGHTS. SHORTLY THEREAFTER THE DIVISION FOUND THAT PROBABLE CAUSE EXISTED AND THEY ORDERED THAT MY CASE BE HEARD AT A PUBLIC HEARING. ON 12/18/2015, I ENTERED INTO A RETAINER AGREEMENT WITH MICHAEL REDENBURG -- ATTORNEY AT LAW. TODAY, 3/28/'16, I RECEIVED MY SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT FROM THE CITY OF NY AND DHS WITH A BROAD SMILE ON MY FACE! THANK YOU, KINDLY MR. REDENBERG. YOU ARE A GREAT ATTORNEY WHO FOUGHT HARD AND FAST WITH SWIFT JUSTICE. I AM NO LONGER A HOMELESS VET AND I CAN NOW TAKE GREAT CARE OF MY PET THERAPY ANIMALS...

Micheal Redenburg is one of the best civil rights attorney in New York City. He is an incredible attorney who will fight for your rights. Charged with a false crime, I highly recommend Mr. Redenburg. He will stand by you and help you get the justice you deserve.

It's hard sometimes when you have to deal with certain life situations that call for a lawyer and harder when you have to deal with a less understanding or compassionate one. This will not be the case when working with Mr. Michael Redenburg as it is quite a pleasant experience working with him. He is very thorough in terms of providing you with the worst case and best case scenario, he is available for questions via phone or email, he always returns phone calls and he keeps you in the loop on your case.
I got in contact with Michael because I worked as an independent contractor for a company that was blatantly taking advantage of their workers. The company classified their workers as independent contractors but expected them to act like full-time employees and forced them to put in overtime hours without the benefits.
I did most of my communication with Michael via email and over the phone, however he always made me feel confident and comfortable. He is very personable and shows compassion for his clients’ concerns and worries.
His fees are fair and I was able to get the assistance I needed. I would highly recommend him as a professional lawyer; he is definitely one of the good ones. And on that note, I would like to say thank you to Michael. I thought my situation was hopeless and that another company was going to stick it to the little guy.

Very attentive, responsive and a straight-up man. What ever questions or concerns, we received a prompt accurate answer. He kept us up to date with all steps. Mr. Redenburg covered all the bases.

My son was arrested on a Saturday for a Class A misdemeanor. Mr Redenburg responded immediately to my telephone call and had my son released from lockup within 24 hours. Was able to have his case dismissed by communicating and meeting with the ADA in a timely fashion. In addition, Mr. Redenburg was readily available to answer any questions that arose concerning the charge and court hearings relieving all anxieties.

It's hard to express what a breath of fresh air it is to deal with a lawyer like Michael Joseph Redenburg. He answers your questions, calls you back, keeps you updated on your case and above all he did an incredible job on my DUI. It also helps that he was the most reasonably priced attorney I've yet to encounter in NYC.
I highly recommend him!

I got into a car accident, and search the internet for a lawyer. Called a few, left messages, two returned my call. One gave me advised but was unable to help. Received a call from another who made me feel intimidated and advised me to leave my home until I saw him in person. Found Michael who assured me everything would be ok set up an appointment to see him. Upon meeting Michael I felt comfortable and within half an hour I was able to get the assistance I needed at a very reasonable
price. I highly recommend him.
