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.

Saved this busy mom of three!
Michael Palumbo followed my case carefully through lengthy covid related delays and kept me informed and feeling assured. He was able to plead my speeding infraction from a potentially devastating situation (as a busy busy driver of three sports obsessed kids) to a manageable zero point non moving violation type of ticket. I cannot thank him and his team enough for their hard work. Amazing !

Grateful Client
I received a speeding ticket in upstate NY (80 in a 65) while picking my son and daughter up from college on their Thanksgiving break. It was a terrible start to the holiday! Mr. Palumbo (including Mr. Ritz and team) immediately got to work and represented me effortlessly. By Christmas, the 4 point speeding ticket was reduced to a 0 point, non-moving violation. It was a huge relief! They are the best!

A caring, communicative attorney
I retained Michael and his firm to represent me for a speeding ticket received in Queens, NY during a very difficult time in my life. Michael accepted the case without hesitation and with the kindest consideration for my circumstances. The ticket was written in the midst of COVID shutdowns so the court date was delayed more times than usual BUT I never had to worry... The team stayed on top of what was probably a very small (and not profitable) case. I lost track of the court dates and largely forgot about the case until Michael contacted me with the outcome a few days ago. The outcome was the best I could have expected but more importantly, the process exceeded my expectations. The Palumbo firm's handling lived up to all that Michael promised and I never once had to chase him to get in touch. A gentleman and a great lawyer. Thank you Michael.

Excellent Firm and Excellent Results!!
I HIGHLY recommend Palumbo & Associates! I’m an attorney myself, but am unfamiliar with traffic court. When I received a traffic citation, I knew I’d need someone with expertise in the relevant laws and courts to help me fight the ticket. I was referred to Palumbo & Associates by another attorney in Westchester County. I could not be more impressed by the work that Michael Palumbo and Ron Ritz did for me! They got my speeding ticket reduced to a 0-point non-moving violation. I’d hire them again in a heartbeat and will recommend them to anyone who asks.

Merry Christmas to me thanks to Mr. Palumbo !
Bottom line, look no further than Mr. Palumbo if in need of assistance with a traffic violation. Without getting into too much privacy detail, all I will say is Mr. Palumbo accomplished what I thought was impossible. I was seeking delay of the inevitable “guilty”, as too not impact insurance rates … well the inevitable will not occur, as my case was dismissed… talk about exceeding my expectations!!! I am never going to lose sleep again over a ticket….. If you continue your online search following reading my review, my thought is you will never find what you are looking for. Trust me on this.

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!

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.

Excellent
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.
