Someone from the firm called me back within 30 minutes (on a weekend). It was evident as Mike walked me through the process that he and his team knew exactly what they were doing. After they were hired, they literally took care of everything - and got a great outcome.

HE WAS ABLE TO SETTLE MY SPEEDING TICKET 88 on 55 (an 8 point penalty) to a dismissal, WITH NO POINTS AND NO FINE . IAM WITHOUT WORDS. I SAVED PRECIOUS TIME , POINTS AGAINST MY LICENSE AND MONEY . THANK YOU MR. PALUMBO

I picked up two speeding tickets, one in August, and one in October. 1st was for going 15 over the speed limit (SL) and i was given 3 points and 150 bucks as a fine. I was going to fight that one myself. It was the second ticket that I hired Palumbo and associates - it was for 8 points and a 360$ fine. I was going 38 over the SL, and I almost got arrested for reckless driving. Both cases I was commuting to school, and it felt like I was unfairly targeted as an out of state driver. Living on my own also, paying for car insurance alone was going to financially cripple me so drastically that I would have had to rethink my whole academic career, maybe move home to afford to live. Then there was the issue of taking time to go to court to state my case - I would have to taken a day out of class or work to make it. I've never contested a ticket before, and I am not from around here. the whole process seemed so intimidating and frustrating. The stakes were very high too, my license could have been suspended and I would have lost my ability to function up here in rural VT.
I hired Palumbo's group to contest both of my tickets. Worth every penny. I didn't have to worry about court, about confronting the police officers who issued tickets to me, about missing school or work, and I was much more confident that my cases would work out better than if I was on my own.
Anyways, the 8 point ticket was completely dismissed, no points, no fines. The 3 point ticket was converted to a parking ticket and I got no points. Let me also mention that BOTH of my hearings were on the same day in the same court. I can't even imagine how I didn't get the book thrown at me, for having two separate speeding cases with my name on them happen on the same day.
NO SURCHARGE POINTS!!!!!! If I had absorbed even half of those 11 points from the tickets, I would be paying so much for insurance I can't even imagine how I could have lived. I talked to my insurance company, they were estimating that monthly rate would go to 400 bucks or more if I got up to 6 or 7 tickets.
When I think of my decision to hire Palumbo, I can't help but think of it in terms of how it will pay for itself soon, and double and triple and quadruple my investment over years of not having high insurance rates from the points I avoided. I am not a gambling type, and I knew that hiring Palumbo and company was a great idea, and was gonna save me a huge hassle and money in the end. I strongly recommend, and god forbid, I will use them again if I ever goof up again behind the wheel (hopefully not though).
Full disclosure: I was invited to take this survey via email link AFTER I was given my results. I was not offered any reward or any sort for typing this.

Michael J. Palumbo and his staff are in the words of Tina Turner "simply the best".

I was charged with 14 points and in danger of losing my license, which was extremely important for my livelihood! Within an hour of receiving my case, Michael Palumbo contacted me directly for a free consultation. I knew right away that this was the firm to handle my case. He and Ron Ritz worked very hard. They were very concise and thorough in explaining the whole process of what I had to do. They also eased my anxiety several times over. As a result of their efforts, all charges were dismissed! It's as if the entire incident never happened! What a relief! Their price is steep, but I promise you that it is worth every penny and they will get you results!

I was pulled over and was facing 5 points for having my cellphone in my hand. I felt that this ticket was warranted. However, I immediately looked for an attorney in the Mamaroneck area and appointed Palumbo & Associates. Within minutes of sending an email to their office on learning more about their services, their office called me. After explaining the situation, they assured me that they can handle this ticket and will fight to get all points dismissed. Their office kept me informed throughout the status of my case, and ultimately informed me that my ticket was dropped to a parking violation with no points issued on my license. The pricing was very fair and their services showed that their fee was well worth it. To reassure yourself that you are in good hands, I would highly recommend you engage Palumbo & Associates.

My company hired Mr. Palumbo to assist in fighting a very important summons we received. It was extremely urgent and we needed the most qualified person to handle this for us considering the very serious nature of the summons. We hired him and he assisted swiftly and assertively and got our case dismissed on our first court date. We are very pleased with the outcome and would hire him again if needed.

I received a 82 in a 65 on the thruway on my way to pick up my son from college. I emailed Mike when I returned late Friday night and received a call from Mike on Saturday morning. I was really not expecting such a quick response. I discussed my case with him, we emailed a few documents to each other and his team took care of the rest. I did not have to appear in court, Mike's team represented me, which is good because that would have been a five hour trip each way from my home. I received a $175 parking ticket, no points. My CDL is still clean, they did a great job. I have already recommended Mike to a few of my coworkers. If you are having doubts, don't, Mike will be straight with you and will deliver. I just want to say that I never leave reviews but in this case I just felt that I had to because of the quality of the service. If you are Googling lawyers like I was I hope that you will take my advice and hire Mike.

Easy to work with. Very clear communications. Represented me in Court and got my 6 pt violation down to no points and a small fine. Extremely happy with the outcome.

Was ticketed on the Triborough Bridge for doing "61" minding my own business in the flow of traffic. Seems 61 is the magic number because they double your fine and points. Decided to look into having an attorney handle this and left a message for Mike very early on a Sunday morning. He called back within minutes and gave me a no nonsense explanation of how his firm would handle this with no promises but a good feeling that the fine and points would at least be reduced. Decided the fee was worth it since it would cost me more to take off from work and, really, what do I know about how to best fight this? Plus the aggravation and stress of going to court!
Can't begin to thank Mike and his team enough for how this was handled. I had to do virtually nothing in the process. His team tracked the ticket and court date, pushed the trial date for over 18 months so that the points wouldn't appear even if I lost, kept in contact with me appropriately, and were absolutely professional every step of the way. Best of all, the ticket was completely dismissed with no fine and points as though it never took place! Not sure how they did it, but the best result I could have imagined.
Very impressed and very appreciative!!!
