I am very proud to say that I am simply the best NY, CT and VT traffic court defense lawyer. This is not what I alone say, but this is what my clients say. When you read our testimonials you will see that our clients could not be happier with our responsiveness, accessibility, ease of service, but most of all results.

 

I am also proud of our mission statement - to bring quality and affordable legal representation to New York motorists charged with speeding, moving violations, DUI, and automobile crimes. We have been executing on this mission since the inception of my law firm.

 

I realized that the public needed such a focused legal service when I first started practicing criminal defense and would watch motorists, unrepresented, try to defend themselves. What was needed was a law firm savvy enough to create a business model to provide high quality criminal defense cost effectively to New Yorkers charged with speeding and other infractions. Out of that idea o ur website was born. The service could not be more affordable and convenient. Our clients do not have to go to court or come to our office, can pay by credit card, and we charge 1 low flat fee.

 

The second thing I did was partner up with just a tremendous trial attorney, my good friend and business partner Mark Kosofsky. Partnering up made each of us stronger, better attorneys and better advocates for our clients. We opened practice areas that neither one of us could have done on our own. Mark has been practicing personal injury for over 20 years. Mark has recovered millions for his clients injured in auto accidents, slip and falls, and the like.

 

Today our clients benefit from our growth. We have expanded to include almost the entire Northeast for speeding and traffic ticket defense.  Our office is licensed in NY & CT and we have affiliate referral counsel in NJ, MA & RI.

Excellent Service for Reduction of Traffic Ticket to Parking Ticket
I was very satisfied with the services provided by Mr. Palumbo to resolve my case with a plea from the charge of a 2-point unsafe starting to the reduced charge of a 0-point parking ticket. I consulted with Mr. Palumbo via email about my case after his services were recommended to me by a family member. I then hired him to assist me in resolving my ticket I received following an accident. He guided me throughout the entire process, and promptly answered any questions I had along the way. Since I was not able to appear in court on my court date, Mr. Palumbo would have sent out a member of his team to appear in court for me. I did not end up needing this convenient service after my ticket was reduced to a parking ticket. I also had to complete a defensive driving course to resolve my case. Mr. Palumbo graciously provided a link to a fully online course. This was great because I was able to complete the course at home and take breaks between sections. He made it so much easier for me considering this was the first time I received a ticket that could put points on my license. I was so relieved to not deal with points on my license and a huge uptick in my car insurance bill. I would recommend Mr. Palumbo's services to anyone!

Michael J Palumbo Speeding and traffic ticket Layer is the best
Extremely satisfied, very professional and promises results. He was able to reduce my speeding ticket of 85 miles an hour to a nonmoving violation and save me six points on my drivers license. I could not be happier with his performance and service. I highly recommend him.

Top Notch Firm
Palumbo & Associates was fantastic to work with! They walked me through the process, advised me on a place to take defensive driving online and got the ticket dismissed without fine or points. They were terrific. Thank you again.

Do NOT Plead Guilty
The Palumbo law office is highly skilled and attentive to clients. They know their way around the traffic courts, including in NYC. I was 100% satisfied with the outcome of my case, which was dismissal of the charge. Do not plead guilty to a traffic ticket. You will have to pay a fine, and may get points added to your record. Call Michael Palumbo instead, and follow his advice. You will be happy you did.

Hassle free with quick results
Mr. Palumbo and his team got my speeding ticket resolved with the best results. My ticket was knocked down from a speeding (13 mph over) with high chance of multiple points down to a parking ticket with no points, all without me having to step foot into a court room or in front of a judge. This was all done within in a couple of months, after my initial free consultation, signing of the contract, and after providing the necessary documentation. It should be noted that I did have an otherwise clean driving record before I got my ticket. Once I turned in the documentation, I only communicated over email and very few at that. My expectations were set during the consultation, as well as all possible outcomes (even those that wouldn't work out in my favor). I was a little nervous at first, but I am happy I signed up. There's no way I would have been able to get the results I did on my own and within the same time frame.

I was in jeopardy of having my license suspended and thanks to the help of Ronnie Ritz I only received 2 points on my license. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help fighting a speeding ticket.

Helpful response
I have ez pass toll violations and I sent a inquiry to get some assistance , unfortunately I accidentally put a incorrect email when sending him the inquiry on his website and so he couldn’t email me back and , so he texted me and asked me for my email. He did this knowing I prob was not going to be able to hire him! Anyways he gave me some really helpful information with url links and made sure I understood that I need to resolve the issue and not ignore it, his services are more then what my violations are and he new that and still consulted , he insisted I follow the links and try to resolve on my own. Very helpful consultation, .

As Promised
Michael and Ron indicated that they could get my moving violation ticket down to 0 points. They did just that! I did not have to appear in court. It was 2 simple credit card transactions. 1 to hire and 1 for the non-moving violation fine (5 point fine to 0 p). I will say that I contacted several attorneys via email. Not only did Michael promptly respond. He was the only one that responded to me. The result was what was expected.

Highly recommend, money well spent
They pled my upstate NY speeding ticket (74/55 mph) down to littering on the highway, a 0 points violation. Well worth the fees to pay for their services.

Fantastic Result!
Mr. Palumbo was so easy to work with and achieved stellar results. His fee is reasonable considering the alternative fines and points that could have been assessed due to the traffic violation in dispute. He was able to get the entire ticket dismissed without needing me to appear in court! Hopefully I will not need him again in the future but certainly glad to know he is there if I do!

Honest Guy, Good Person to Know
I called Mr. Palumbo to support me with my EZ PASS issue. Not only was he helpful in explaining the right course of action, he also gave me the opportunity to resolve the issue myself before acquiring his services. I am grateful that he did not take advantage of my ignorance. I can say now that I know a honest traffic attorney to call if ever I or someone I know is in need. I definitely saved his number. Thank you for being a stand up guy.

Michael Palumbo was more expensive but worth it!
I was cited for a traffic violation in New Rochelle and wanted to fight it. I'm also an attorney, but don't know any traffic attorneys and was googling and calling/consulting many attorneys in the area. Michael Palumbo charged more than some other attorneys that I found. When he told me about his approach and the results he thought he could get with my case, I decided to go with him. I'm glad I did. He was very responsive. When I was a bit slow getting some documents to him, he was not afraid to provide some tough love to encourage me to move things along. He was also able to reduce my traffic citation to a 0 point non-moving violation. If I need help again I'll turn back to him, and I recommend him.

Awesome Job
I received a bill from the three toll authorities which resulted in an astronomical amount of fees. After consulting with Mr. Palumbo, I knew he was the right attorney to help me. He had a large amount of fees reduced and help me obtain a payment plan with the toll authorities that I could manage. Mr. Palumbo answered all of my calls and emails immediately and put my mind at rest throughout the whole process. If you have any assistance don’t hesitate to contact his firm you won’t regret.

Red Light Ticket
I used Michael's services for a red light infraction in NYC. The expectation was that I would be found guilty and that his office would delay the court dates so my insurance premium wouldn't increase - saving me money in the short term. When the court date finally arrived, the infraction was dismissed! Couldn't have been more satisfied. If you need a traffic ticket resolved, call Michael's office. The cost of his services, in many cases, would be what you pay for in fines to the DMV and increase in insurance premiums.

Why you should retain Michael Palumbo
The Palumbo law firm once again proved why you don't represent yourself. I am so happy at the professionalism and concern shown in the instant case. I am pleased at the result and diligence. I would definitely recommend Michael Palumbo to anyone who has a traffic infraction to retain this firm. Thanks for your efforts time and consideration in this matter.
