Simply the BEST!
It is not until one is faced with a legal matter that one realizes that our legal system is far from perfect, and that innocence does not necessarily exempt you from legal jeopardy. Once caught in a legal matter, there is an emotional and stressful toll to pay which derives from the uncertainty of the unknown. I am very pleased and grateful that I was able to retain Brian’s services to attend to a most unpleasant experience. Throughout the duration, Brian was supportive and understanding. He explained legal lingo in terms that I could understand and often forwarded links to source where I could further understand the matters at hand. Brian displayed a commanding knowledge of his field while exercising caution in offering advice out of his area of expertise. While it is apparent that Brian is adroit in the courtroom, I was able to ascertain that he is a warm and caring professional. As my case developed and eventually unfolded into a very successful resolution, I was very happy and grateful that I had Brian Valerio in my corner.

Worth the investment
I hired Brian Valerio of Greco Neyland PC to represent me in a dubious disorderly conduct charge, and I can say with full certainty that if you are in a similar position, this is the firm for you. From beginning to end, they were by far the most professional team I consulted, and as a result they were the ones I chose to represent me in court. At the hearing, the judge initially handed out an ACD, but Brian Valerio cleverly argued against the ruling and got the case completely dismissed within a few minutes. Greco Neyland is on the more expensive side, but if you have the means to bring these guys on board, they are worth the investment. This is your future, after all!

Best decision ever
Choosing Brian was THE BEST decision I ever made. I was charged with shoplifting (155.90), which comparatively might be a simple case, but it was the biggest thing that ever happened in my life. After consulting with several attorneys, I thought getting a ACD (which is normally 6 month) would be the best offer. But Brian's firm was confident that they would try their best to fight for an 30-day ACD, which honestly was already better than I ever imagined. After the first court date, Brian met with the assigned ADA and we were eventually able to get the case dismissed straight away on the second court date!!! I could never asked for a better result! Brian has a strong personality in court, and I felt safe and confident to have him there with me through the whole process, because I have complete faith that he would do his best to fight and protect me. I hope that I would never be in the position where I would require his services again, but to those who are looking for an attorney --- Brian Valerio is the guy!

Very professional criminal case
Brian help us so much to get our son out of a simple teen age college mistake from initial Felony arrest. By telling us all the possible and realistic options he comforted us all the way during the case to the winning of the case. Very professional, extremely knowledgeable, very detail oriented and with lot of courtesy he successfully lower the initial case to practically no charge for our son. It was a pleasure working with Brian. We highly recommend his services.

Excellent Criminal Defense Attorney
I hired Brian as my criminal defense attorney for a case. This was the first time I've ever been in court, but Brian was extremely responsive and listened to every aspect of my case from our very first meeting. Based upon on my information, he came up with a strategy to approach the case and managed my expectations accordingly. In the end, we were able to get the case completely dismissed, the most ideal outcome for a potential misdemeanor charge. The case lasted approximately 3 months and Brian made sure to update me every time something was needed. He also was able to coordinate with the Justice department about changing my contact information so that I could keep the information discrete. I would highly recommend Brian as an attorney

Possession of Marijuana
Dealing with my drug case at first was very worrying to me because it was not my first time being convicted for the possession of Marijuana, but Brian was able to dismiss my second offense as quickly as two trails. Brian is knowledgeable in his field and knows exactly what to do to help your case. Brian was there every step of the way and always alleviated all of my concerns.

Absolutely worth it
What was originally a felony arrest ended as a dismissed misdemeanor. Brian provided my family and I peace of mind, took my case seriously and was extremely prompt when handling all matters. I hope to never need a lawyer again, but he will be the first to call if so. Definitely recommend and will do so in the future.

Peace Of Mind
Got myself into a situation I had no idea how handle. Immediately called Brian after a Google search and haven't looked back since. Long story short, I was charged with a felony and at the end of the day ended up with a misdemeanor and some community service. Well worth it. If you need someone who's available whenever you need him, someone who will fight tooth and nail, hire Brian then thank me later.

He fought for me!
I was accused and arrested for vandalism from a neighbor, which i never did. His defense of me was impressive and powerful. He took command of the court with respect and was clear and tough. He addressed all the facts for the judge and would not quit defending me until he got the deal that was best for me, which was as ACD (adjournment in consideration of a dismissal). I will never forget what he did for me. He is the best of the best!!!!!

Desk Appearance and Summons Expunged
I originally had 1 desk appearance and 2 summons in Manhattan to show up in court that were actually 17 years old. I went to Mr. Brian Valerio for his assistance and his professional advice on how to have these cleared and have them expunged. Mr. Brian Valerio took the time out and explained to me my legal situation and what my best course of action would be in order to get a positive outcome. His personal research of my case and attention to detail put me at ease and made me feel well represented legally. Not only was the desk appearance and summons cleared, Mr. Valerio called all of the other boroughs to ensure that there were no other open summons or desk appearances. I am truly grateful for the knowledge and legal representation Mr. Brian Valerio gave me. I might not have had this same outcome with another lawyer. Thank-you so much!

Brian is Absolutely Amazing!
After a rough night out at a bar, Brian was quick to assure me that everything would turn out A-Ok. This was my first run with the NYC legal system, having to find a lawyer, and having to go to court, and Brian was able to put my nerves at ease very easily. In the end, he got the best deal for me that would guarantee a dismissal after 6 months. I have Brian to thank for a clean record.

Definitely recommend
I was recently arrested for driving on a suspended license that I hadn't even realized was suspended, and was overwhelmed and panicked. When I called Brian, he was compassionate, reassuring, and very knowledgeable. He answered my many questions with patience and kindness, and clearly explained to me exactly what steps to take. He was able to resolve the case in court with the best possible outcome, and was an absolute pleasure to work with in the process. I recommend him without hesitation to anyone who finds themselves in the unfortunate position of requiring a criminal attorney.

Assault Charges
I'm extremely pleased that i hired Mr. Valerio to represent me with my case in NYC. It was a complex case, that could have turned out very bad for me, without a confident and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney, such as Mr. Valerio. He was able to get the Charge's significantly reduced to one violation.. that was really important in my case, because my livelihood depended on it. he was respectful, honest in his opinions and easy to reach through phone or email. He also made sure i understood and was comfortable with every decision, before any paper work was signed..His fee was reasonable as well. I highly recommend Brian Valerio, to anyone seeking a defense attorney in NYC.
