Real Estate
My wife and I had an outstanding experience with Mike Flynn and Lee Bergstein in navigating the tedious and often confusing process of buying a home in New York, specifically Long Island. As first time homeowners we had a plethora of questions and the lawyers always responded to our questions promptly and thoroughly. Their highly professional but friendly demeanor was much appreciated.

Excellent Representation
I retained Lee Bergstein to represent a former employee and friend on a case that had been tied up in the NYC Criminal Court system for well over a year. Within a few weeks Lee was able to negotiate a plea that would enable my friend to return to work. He also expedited the reinstatement of this individuals licences to expedite his return to work in two days. Both of us were extremely well please with Lee's attention to this case and with his negotiating skills. I would highly recommend Lee Bergstein.

Criminal Defense Attorney
Lee worked tirelessly to achieve the right result despite a great deal of resistance from both the prosecutor's office and co-counsel. He knows the system. He knows what it takes to handle a paper case as contrasted to most attorneys who have a general familiarity with the process and they will follow a mindset, like many of their brethren, to do what is expected, within limits, and then tell the client at the back end, they must settle for something that may not make any sense. Lee did not give up and yes, he achieved a result that allowed me to move on and get this case behind me, not any easy thing to do.

Above And Beyond
Recently, I was referred to Lee by a long-time family friend/attorney when someone filed a false report against me. Being an attorney myself, I am particularly discriminating when it comes to retaining counsel. But after one brief telephone conversation with Lee, I knew I needed to look no further. Over the course of my case, Lee exceeded my expectations in every way. He began working on my case immediately, explained every step of the process in detail and was always accessible to answer my questions. Lee also used the skills, relationships and good will he built as a prosecutor to aid in my defense. I could not be more satisfied with the representation I received and will not hesitate to recommend Lee to others in the future.

Criminal Case
Recently a family member of mine was arrested for an alleged felonious assault. Lee was highly recommended to represent her in this matter and was retained. Lee was immediately available to interview the client, understood the wrongful circumstance of her arrest and passionately embraced pursuing a dismissal of the charges. As an experienced former A.D.A. in Queens County, Lee was able to present a relevant and convincing case to the D.A.'s office which resulted in a pre-trial dismissal. Lee totally impressed us with his competence, diligence and passionate approach to his work. Lee is HIGHLY recommended.

Panicked and desperate
Lee was recommended to me by a freind after my son was arrested in the middle of the night, Lee got my call at 12:30 am and immediately started on the case by calling the precinct and gathering information, he was in court at 8 am discussing the case with the D A at 9:30 am my son was out, Lee understood the panic and urgency that a parent go's through in situations like this, he was very reassuring to my son and me. I never wish for anyone to go through what I went through that night but I am very grateful to Lee. Thank you again.

Lee assisted with every aspect of our situation. Not only did he keep us informed, he kept us confident of the outcome. He was able to provide an expedited resolution to the matter. The outcome was satisfactory to me and my girlfriend's needs. I would recommend Lee's legal advise to anyone looking for a transparent attorney who provides results.
