Attorney Schuster from day one provided a realistic approach to our case and laid out what we were going to face step-by-step. He expertly guided us through the process from day one. Recommendation is to listen and follow his instructions. Most importantly, he asked questions of the DA and pursued avenues that other lawyers may not have and the result was overwhelming favorable. We didn't "settle" and appealed our case and it was well worth Robert's fees. As an aside, he is well versed in the medical side of issues involving DUI/DUAI which could play a major factor in the outcome of a case. Lastly, he was prompt with returning call and questions, patient with explaining the process, and put us in touch with the right resources to make this "mistake" as painless as possible. You will be in good hands.

We hired Rob for a first-time DWI situation in Putnam County. He got back to us immediately. We interviewed three attorneys over the phone, and were going to meet all three, but after meeting Rob we decided he was our guy. He was more expensive, but we were willing to pay for the best. He managed the case and got the charge reduced to a traffic infraction, which is what he told us he would do. He was professional, understanding, and utterly competent.

Robert was extremely helpful in dealing with my case. His knowledge of thr westchester DA and experience helped me achieve the greatest outcome for my case. He was extremely helpful.

I retained Robert as my defense in my first dance with the criminal justice system, which was for a DWI in Westchester County.
The bottom line is this, Robert knows the law to the letter, and works all over the county -- which results in a diverse professional network. These two things are what goes to work for you, in a tight spot.
My experience specifically involved a high reading, which is Westchester County is very hard to deal with, a large large percentage of cases like mine end up with Probation. Robert was able to negotiate a 1y conditional discharge, and avoid probation. In my eyes, this was the best possible result I could have achieved, given the state's case.
While not the cheapest option you will come across, he is in my eyes bar far the most equipped and knowledgeable attorney working in this space in the area.

Mr Schuster brought a quick resolution to my case, was sincere and factual about likely outcomes and was clear about the level of investigation he was prepared to apply to my case if necessary. Clients will certainly benefit from his tenure, experience and reputation in the Putnam and Westchester county courts.

I recently was arrested for a DWI. This was my first time dealing with criminal charges in my life, so you can imagine I was quite fearful especially since my professional license was in jeopardy. There was both an accident as well as an inadequate breath sample, which they deemed as a refusal in my case, making it more complicated and not easily inclined for plea bargaining. I spoke with multiple lawyers who said I had no chance to lessen the charge and advised me to plead guilty as charged, until I spoke with Mr. Schuster. He was very confident and believed he could obtain the lesser charge of a DWAI, a traffic infraction. At first, the DA was unwilling to lessen the charge, but he worked vigorously for weeks and it paid off. I did not need to go to trial and received the noncriminal charge of DWAI. Not only did he do this, he was able to restore my license after revocation from the refusal hearing. Although this process has been quite difficult, Mr. Schuster delivered the results I needed and I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.

Robert Schuster is an outstanding attorney who works tirelessly for the best outcome for his clients. Our special needs child faced seriously felony charges, when in fact, he was the victim. Robert Schuster took our son's very complex case that became more complex and challenging over time and provided a excellent level of effective and professional representation.
When we first met Robert Schuster, we were overwhelmed by what had happened to our son and what brought us to his office. Robert did an excellent job of explaining the process and his strategy. In the end, he was able to get all of the charges dismissed, including the serious felonies, by persistence and finding extensive inconsistencies in witness testimony. He fights for the best possible outcome for his clients.

Robert Schuster was able to get my charges dismissed! Even from our initial phone consultation, he really took his time to listen and I really appreciate how supportive he was all throughout this very stressful, difficult time. He is incredibly courteous, meticulous, efficient, and always prompt in returning my emails and calls. I also noticed that he really knows the judges and district attorneys in Westchester county and has a very good relationship with them. Thank you so much again! I'm so grateful and indebted to you! I highly recommend him!

Robert had a plan immediately for my daughter's DWAI ticket. He saw us the same day and I called and started work immediately. He was also instant in any responses when I texted him. I felt he was going to take every extra step to investigate the trooper's procedure and evidence. AND he got it dismissed on our first appearance and informed us of this before we even arrived at court. I am thankful that my daughter does not have to deal further with this.
