Excellent Lawyer!
This is my first time working with Lawyer Victor and I'm impressed with the result. His communication with a client is superb! I got a ticket for disobeying a traffic sign in The Bronx of which I didn't even see the sign and there wasn't any pavement marking also, so I was left with two options either to plead guilty and pay the ticket with "2 points on my license" or give it a try by giving the case to a Lawyer. Upon a recommendation from a relative, I gave the case to Lawyer Victor A. Bernace. I got the ticket dismissed yesterday. With great emphasis, I recommend him to anyone because his rates are affordable, and have a very effective communication style.

Excellent attorney!
Victor A. Bernace, Esq is a knowledgeable, honest, affordable and patient lawyer, who communicates clearly. Even before I hired him, he was very generous with providing me counsel and information about my situation. He provided me a link to connect virtually to the court to appear for my hearing, which I had no idea I could do. He was also honest about my situation and the likelihood of winning. Additionally, he won my case and sent me the notes he prepared in order to do so! I would give him ten stars if I could!

Victor has gone above and beyond my expectations. 2017 was a bad year for me, received two tickets back to back and I was in need of a lawyer. I can appreciate the straightforwardness and honesty of Victor. Victor made the proccess effortless. He always kept me up to date with how the proccess worked and was upfront with what can happen. But luckily he pulled a rabbit out the hat and had my two 3 year old tickets dismissed and I was found not guilty. Saving me Time ,Money and my peace of mind. Thank you Victor I will hire him Anytime

AMAZING LAWYER!!! I chose Victor after pricing around and speaking with 3 other attorneys - He was the cheapest by far!! (and based on my phone interviews, REALLY knew his business. We met in the court and he was super professional - gave me advice to ask for a postponement (and did not charge me since he thought we would have a better chance with another judge) and then ended up representing me without me there! He had great follow up, professionalism. and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!!

His pricing is unmatched. Victor really made me at ease and was very truthful which i appreciated due to this being a violation that could potentially suspend my license. Giving me the option to not show up in court and not have to miss a day of work, helped out as well. I will be only be using him if I ever need to fight a Bronx traffic violation and highly recommend to others looking. This lawyer truly helped me out of a bind without breaking my pockets and for that i will always be grateful!

excellent attorney experience
Victor Bernace is Literally the best attorney I’ve ever worked with, and I highly recommend him for anyone with traffic related legal needs. Mr. Bernace is the type of lawyer that you hope you will not need, but if you do, you know you can count on him doing his best to bring about a very favorable outcome. I hired Mr. Victor Bernace in August of 2018 regarding a speeding and no id violation I had received on i95 in the Bronx. After the trial date (which Mr. Bernace attended on my behalf), Mr. Bernace sent me a detailed email informing me of the very favorable outcome of my case and provided a play by play account on the court proceedings. The outcome of my case was more favorable than I could have possibly imagined. Mr Bernace is extremely competent and genuinely cares about his clients having the best possible outcome, I’ll say it again- he is literally the best attorney I’ve ever worked with.

He’s the BEST!!!
I went to Victor with 3 traffic tickets and he worked and fought very hard to get them dismissed. I still can’t believe that all 3 tickets were dismissed. I promised him that I wouldn’t get any more tickets!! Lol But I highly recommend him to all in need!! He is very knowledgeable, smart, friendly and humble!! I am forever grateful to Victor Bernace!!

Mr. Bernace did a fantastic job for me. We had a scheduled 15-minute phone consultation and he called exactly on time. He listened intently and explained well, giving me no assurances but was reassuring at the same time. He took notes of our conversation and used those notes at trial to argue an obscure part of the law most people would never know based on a unique interaction I had with the police officer when I was pulled over. The verdict was not guilty and my ticket was dismissed. Kudos!

Excellent Lawywr
I hired Mr. Bernace to help my son fight 2 speeding tickets. He was excellent and explained the process to me in how to fight his tickets. point reductions and the best way to go about it. Although he had reduced his prior speed while winning this 2nd speeding ticket. He was reliable and excellent to deal with...

Wishes Do Come True
My son received a speeding ticket on his way home from college. Knowing that trying to plead a ticket in the city of NY is useless, and facing fines and significant points on his license I decided to hire a traffic lawyer. I searched the interne t for one and came upon Victor Bernace. Read the reviews and decided to contact him. He called me back shortly after I left him a message and explained as I already knew that NYC does not plea tickets and that we can hope that the officer does not show up in court (which he said was unlikely because they do get paid to show up in court) or maybe the ticket will get dropped on a technical issue. Through the entire process Victor was in contact with us by e-mail or phone explaining the next steps (postponement, etc) I pretty much thought that in the end we were postponing the inevitable and the ticket would have to paid and the points would be posted. To my surprise I received an e-mail from Victor informing me that my son's ticket was dismissed and that the case was closed. It was truly a wish come true. Yes, I would hire Victor, not because he performs miracles, but because he is professional and honest. He never told us that he would definitely get my son's ticket dismissed, he was very honest on the steps he would take and the possible conclussions.

Professional and honest.
I first reached out to Mr. Bernace for advise and ended up hiring him. I felt he had my best interest at heart and regardless of the outcome, he would've given me a fighting chance. I live out of state. My case went on for over 3 years due to postponements on behalf of the court/staff. Each time Mr. Bernace appear in court to represent me in my absence. I am pleased with the outcome, but so much more with the fact he was truly interested and helpful in my case. Always stayed in touch and kept my expectations balanced. I'd highly recommend him.

"Notwithstanding the fact that we have never met and I am a competitor of his (as I handle moving violations too), Victor is an honest and hard-working traffic lawyer. Without a doubt, Victor earns my endorsement as an excellent attorney. His online reputation and the one he has inside and outside the DMV is a very positive one."

"I've known Victor Bernace for nearly 20 years. In fact, he attended my son's bar mitzvah! I always trust Victor to represent my clients whenever a conflict prevents me from getting to Bronx TVB. You should trust him, too."

Speeding and traffic ticket Attorney | Dec 08
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've known Victor Bernace for over 20 years and have only great things to say about him. He tends to not promote himself as much as he could. For his customers, the best thing he provides is his detailed oriented service. He answers the phone all the time, he tracks your case, and keeps everything coordinated through his use of technology. He's always implementing new cloud based programs and ideas to improve his service just for his customers. Victor first wants to find out what your problem is to see if he can help you. I think he loses customers because sometimes he's too honest about what the chances of winning a case are. What his customers don't realize is that their best chance of winning is by using him."
