Extraordinary Criminal Attorney
Mehmet represented me earlier in his career - in 2013 to 2015 - so I can only imagine how he has sharpened his skills. I was wrongly accused of entering the home of a mentally disturbed woman who had just been released from Belmont Psychiatric Hospital where she had been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. The case came down to her word against mine. Mehmet researched case law and drafted motions that stymied the prosecution at every turn. Most impressive was his knowledge on breaking case law that affected my case and his ability apply it to my case. Most importantly to me was the Mehmet cared about me not as a client or another defendant, but as a person who was wrongly accused. There was little he would not do to see my release. You see I was remanded for two years and he was my only hope. In that scenario communication with a client is paramount. It’s easy to feel abandoned while remanded facing bogus charges. I never felt alone or scared with Mehmet as my attorney. I respect and admire Mehmet and so will you. At 58 years old I’ve dealt with attorneys throughout my life for various reasons. Mehmet is by far the best attorney I’ve ever met.

A+ Hire
Knowledgeable, conscientious and thorough Mehmet Baysan took less than favorable initial circumstances and transformed them into a rock solid outcome in my case. Throughout the entire legal process I felt nothing but confidence in his skills as an attorney as they showed in both his ability to explain the details of my matter in an intelligible and concise way while advocating for me aggressively in the court room. Extremely affable and easy to communicate with, you definitely won't be getting an "autopilot" advocate. Highly recommended.

Couldn't have asked for better counseling, service and execution
When I was referred to Mehmet I didn't know many lawyers in NYC since I am not from here. I really didn't know what to expect. Mehmet was a flawless lawyer. He was extremely precise in explaining my case to me, managed to get everything I wanted from my case, kept me posted at all times, was always very kind and responsive. There really aren't any downsides to mention. I would rate him 10/10 in all aspects. Thank you so much Mehmet, it was a pleasure to get to know you and I am really glad I chose you as my lawyer.

Excellent Negotiator!
Attorney Mehmet was instrumental in reducing our debt. We hired him to negotiate a large debt owed to a company. After our initial meeting I knew he was the perfect attorney for this job. His negotiation skills are commendable. He is insightful and informed in his field, he is also brief and to the point. He always responds within a timely manner to emails and phone calls. I highly recommend Att. Baysan for any of your legal needs.

Highly Recommended !
When my son had an issue that required legal advice, I wasn’t sure what to do. We met with Attorney Baysan and I knew immediately he was the one we needed to represent him. He listened to my son, he spoke directly to him. He explained what the entire process might entail very clearly. He answered all our questions and we felt completely at ease knowing he would be handing everything. I wouldn’t walk in a court room without him !

Top Notch
Attorney Baysan was on time, thorough and diligent. He worked my case intelligently. From discoveries, to questioning the prosecutions ID of the man in the video. Mehmet approached my case strategically..and after 7months of work, he prevailed! Can't thank him enough!

Extremely friendly and affordable
Mehmet was doing a day of pro-bono work the morning I landed in jail on a felony vandalism charge. A few days later, I consulted Mehmet and decided to hire him and his small firm to help me with my case. I didn't have a lot of money to spend, but Mehmet was very accommodating, and best of all he listened to all of my concerns and patiently explained all my options to me. I would recommend him to anyone. The other guys at his firm seemed equally helpful.
