Review Michael Palumbo

  • Very pleased with my service

    When I was informed my license was being revoked by the DMV I contacted the office of Michael J Palumbo through attackthatticket.com. Michael and his team helped me avoid receiving not one but two 4 point speeding tickets and they both became 0 point violations. I was extremely pleased with the services provided. I would highly recommend Michael J Palumbo and his team to anyone

    I needed a lawyer for a few traffic tickets I got and I consulted his firm. I told them my situation and they told me I needed to retain them right away because my traffic tickets were bad and I was gonna need to give them 2 grand to help get out of them. I said that sounds steep for traffic tickets, but he said I should give him my credit card number cause I need to get it taken care of. I'm a salesmen and the guy I talked to tried to sell me. I talked to another lawyer, he charged me 300$ for the same thing and gave better advice on what I should do. I don't know how this guy has all good reviews, if you retained their services more then likely you overpaid. Get better people to work your phones for you.

    Michael J Palumbo’s response: “This guy was doing 115 MPH on the Long Island Expressway in a 55 MPH zone. In addition had 2 lane change violations, before the Suffolk County Traffic Violations Agency. He called on Monday, August 22, 2016 The day after 6 people were killed in Suffolk County in an accident caused by a driver doing over 100 MPH. The case was in one of the worse courts in NY State at the worse time. The court is being sued in Federal District Court for civil right's violations against the motorists who come before it. You can read about it here: http://www.trafficticketlawyersblog.com/2015/07/suffolk-county-traffic-violations-bureau-sued-in-class-action-lawsuit-alleging-violation-of-the-civil-rights-of-motorists-defending-charges-before-the-court/. He was doing 115 MPH in a 55 MPH zone. Let me repeat - 115 MPH in a 55 MPH zone - PLUS 2 unsafe lane changes. He's "that guy" you see on the road who puts your child's life in danger. This guy needs an attorney. Badly. Even if he were before the softest court in the State there is no mercy for this guy. There is no leniency for this guy. He's in a venue that remands motorists; i.e., send them to prison, with questionable authority. That suspends and revokes licenses like they are taking candy from a baby. This guy, who claims to be a salesman, claims that I was selling my services. He says it like it's something I should be ashamed of. If helping people make a decision which is good for them is selling, then I'm a salesman. While I was happy to discuss the case with him and give him a free phone consultation believe me when I say that this is the kind of case I can take or leave at any price. Once this guy told me the charges against him, the first thing I told him was "the question is not whether or not you are going to lose your license, the question is whether or not you are going to jail." Now, does that sound like a "hard sell" to you? In discussing the case with him, the man did not have the mental capacity to understand how bad of shape he is in. He was fixated on saving his license which, unless the cop who wrote the ticket disappeared from face of the earth, is NEVER going to happen. He was so stuck on not losing his license that to keep the conversation productive I literally had to tell him "picture in your mind's eye your license. Picture it now growing wings and flying away, like in a cartoon. That's what's going to happen to your license." He is also lying that I asked him for $2,000.00. I said that it would cost him AT LEAST $2,000.00 and likely more. This case was going to take a lot of mitigation and finesse. I was going to have to put together a huge specials package and have him take not only the defensive driving class, but the alive at 25 program as well. I was going to have to interview him extensively and get him into anger management counseling. In other words, I was going to have to humanize him before the court. Quite difficult to do under the best of circumstances with a guy driving like a maniac. A tall order and total uphill battle before the Suffolk TVA Court. He also lied when he said I asked him for payment. We never got that far. The man was arrogant beyond belief, self righteous, in denial, and had unrealistic expectations. Hiring an attorney is not like hiring a gardener. It's a relationship. Despite the court and the type of charges, I would have represented him, as I am not here to judge. However, this guys most egregious lie is that I asked him for the sale. Quite to the contrary, I ended the conversation by rejecting the case when I realized he was so unrealistic. I simply told him that I was not interested in taking his case. I turned him down because he would have been a train wreck of an unmanageable client. He was rejected and his ego got bruised, which drove him to write this dishonest review. He should be ashamed of himself for his selfish behavior in the way he drives, and for his dishonest review left purely out of spite.”

  • Speeding ticket in NYC

    Anonymous review posted on

    Read a lot of good reviews before using their services and all of it is true. Had a 6 point speeding ticket in NYC dismissed. Have read all over the Internet how hard it is to accomplish but Palumbo and associates got it done. I will be recommending their service to all my friends. Also, all contact was made either by phone or email which save me a trip to their office and taking time from my other obligations. A+ service and rapid response to questions.

  • Old Ticket

    I got a ticket about a year ago in upstate NY for speeding. I tried to handle it on my own by pleading to a lesser charge. I wrote the ADA because I was from out of state and could not appear in court on the date due. I did nothing and found that my driving privileges were suspended due to non-payment. Later, I got a response from the DMV stating that I needed to pay for a ticket but for a different charge. Frustrated and confused I contacted the Palumbo firm and they told me what they could do to help me. I visited the office while working and paid my fee to retain them, they also informed me that my license was suspended and needed to pay that also. I did so, and within a month a got a response that everything was resolved and reduced to a mere parking violation with no points and a fine. I want to thank the Mike and his staff for their work. I highly recommend Mike Palumbo for anyone with a traffic ticket. He gets the job done!

  • Case Dismissed!

    I worked with Michael Palumbo to fight a "Failure to Move Over" violation. I slowed down but was unable to pull all the way over because there were additional cars on the highway. Mr. Palumbo was successful and the case was dismissed. He and his staff were responsive to my questions whenever I needed information. I would recommend his firm.

    I was able to resolve a ticket effectively through simple email communication, and was content to be able to receive prompt responses. Furthermore, the lawyer was able to get a 6 point ticket dismissed.

    As he guarantees, he gets a result that is positive - reduced my ticket which would have had points to a no points result. Large fine... but better than points. Posting anonymously because I don't want to raise any flags on my record...But I love this man.

    I was cited for two tickets, one a three point violation and the other an 8. After hiring these amazing lawyers they were able to remove all points and keep my record clean. Very impressed by how efficient this team is.
