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.

Professional, effective, competent lawyer managing the entire process smoothly and successfully
I got a ticket with a potential 5 point penalty for just holding my cell phone on the dashboard (I was not actually using it). Palumbo and Associates managed the entire process smoothly (I didn't have to do anything) and delayed the hearing for almost one year. At the end of the day, after pleading "Not Guilty", they were able at the hearing to get the ticket dismissed and I was found not guilty. I couldn't think about a better outcome. Thank you, Palumbo and Associates! I hope not to need their services again... but, if something should happen, they will be the first Law Office I will call!

Lifted my 6 month License Suspension
Sold a truck and never turned in the plates. This led to my license being suspended for 6 months. With the person i sold it to not cooperating, it seemed like it would be impossible for my license to be lifted. Michael Palumbo was persistent on solving this issue and in the end I ended up getting my suspension lifted!

The J in his name stands for JUSTICE
I have a clean driving record and drive an agency vehicle often for work. In the last 20 years, I have received two tickets and one citation because public safety had to fill a quota. Michael J Palumbo was referred to me by an old engineer friend from another agency. Michael has advocated for me, represented my interests, and won all three times. Upon initial consultation, he always tells it to you straight, only promising to do his best. He has always delivered for me, and justice has always prevailed. I have referred him to several colleagues, and all have had positive outcomes. Around my circle of friends, we call him Michael "Justice" Palumbo. When it comes to he said, she said, with law enforcement, it is always best to be quiet and have the professionals talk for you. Michael is that man, and he will even out the playing field and try his best. Sincerely, Carlos

Help with Speeding Ticket
Michael was able to help me so that I did not receive points on my license. His team did a great job of communication and was able to get everything handled and charges brought down to just a small fine. He was professional throughout the entire process and kept his clients his number-one priority the entire time. I am genuinely grateful for everything Micahel and his team did to help me.

This place omg I was facing 4 seatbelt tickets!!!! That’s my license being taken completely!!! That’s literally 3 points each totaling to 12 point deduction and the potential if it imminent revoking your of my license. Thus this place! Palumbo & Associates took ny case and brought me a point reduction to a total ZERO! 0! And I am fully satisfied, I now have to pay the parking ticket ($175) that was offered to me but I’ll take the ticket over losing my license everyday! I truly appreciate Mr.Palumbo & his staff! Much love from me on my momma.

6 point speeding ticket down to no point parking ticket!
I got my very firstspeeding ticket, I had my mind on other things and was in a bit of a rush. It would have been 6 points on my license, so I reached out after reading other reviews. It was definitely worth it, as it was lowered to a parking ticket. Hopefully this will be the only time I have this issue, but definitely going to reach back out if I find myself making this mistake again.

Serious Attorney for Serious Problems
I travel for my work and need to a spotless driving record. So when, I received a 6 Point Speeding Ticket, I had a serious problem. Contacted 5 attorneys, 2 no call backs, 2 were terrible to speak with no customer service and then spoke with Mike. Mike was careful to listen to the details and allowed me to think about my options. I called him back a few days later and he and his team got right on it. Well folks the results are in and its 0 Points ! TRUST MIKE FOR RESULTS.

Review
I was very concerned when I got a speeding ticket in the Bronx and learned the traffic court was not like my local municipality (out of state) where you could talk to the prosecutor and perhaps get a plea deal. I was facing 6 points and fines. I entered a not guilty plea and knew I would need to find an attorney. Looking online for an attorney is overwhelming and after reviewing several websites, I found none to be as comprehensive and full of reviews as Palumbo & Associates. I was impressed that Michael Palumbo responded to some of the reviews as well. After reading about him and the testimonials, I sent in my information and within not even a 1/2 hour I received a phone call from him. I came to find out that this is his work ethic, he is extremely responsive regardless of what time he receives an email or phone call. I immediately knew my case would be in good hands. He was honest and made no promises, because the court was a difficult one he told me the outcome would obviously be either full points, reduced points or dismissed. But he said he would handle everything and I wouldn't be required to appear. I was therefore ecstatic when I heard from him that my case was dismissed and I received no points. I definitely made the right choice. Your choice of attorney is important - points last years - insurance increases forever. Best money I spent was hiring Palumbo & Associates and I can't tell you enough how highly I recommend that if you are reading this, that you hire them too.

The best around!
I was issued an 8 point ticket and immediately called Michael. He instructed me to take a defensive driving class and they would handle the rest. I was very nervous as an 8 point ticket would be very expensive, both to the court as well as insurance premiums. Michael's office was able to get it knocked down to parking in front of a fire hydrant, 0 points! I was hopeful that I would get the 8 points reduced maybe to half, but was astounded when I found out it was dropped all the way to 0! Big shoutout to Michael and Ron for helping me with this, absolutely ecstatic about the result!

Got My 4-Point Ticket Dismissed!
After receiving my first-ever speeding ticket, I faced a fine, 4 points on my license, and a higher insurance premium. I decided to hire an attorney and contacted Palumbo & Associates. I called late on a Friday afternoon, and Michael called me right back. He put me at ease and walked me through the process. After I paid, signed, and sent what they needed, they took care of everything. I didn't even have to go to court. His associate, Ron, followed up with me to keep me updated on the case, and today I found out it was dismissed! The price I paid was worth having experienced attorneys handle it. They know the area and court system well here in Westchester County.
