Very professional
“I recently hired Mike Romano and I could not be more pleased with the result. He was very helpful in getting me to understand the entire process and never had a problem fully answering my questions, no matter how simple. On top of that he got me a result that was above my expectations. He did all this at a very fair price, there were no hidden or unknown costs. I was able to attend one of the hearing conferences with him, and he was not only very proficient, but he knew the people involved, and he completely commanded the conference in my favor. Very impressed. I would strongly recommend him to any of my friends or family for any NY criminal defense work.”

THE BEST CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY. PERIOD!!!!!!
To say that I am grateful for Mike's godsend representation of me during one of my darkest moments would be a severe understatement. Not only does he actually deliver, unlike other criminal defense attorneys I know, he goes the extra 100 miles to get to know the real you and your family. Most importantly, he is not afraid to tell me when things are looking tough. But, in the end, he will make sure to guide you and treat you as if you were his family. I am and will forever be grateful for Mike for all that he has done for my life and beyond. I would not be where I am today if it were not for his trusted guidance and support along the way. Truly the best criminal defense attorney - full stop. Thank you!!!!!

Mike Romano. Excellent attorney. Spent quality time on my case. Got me out of jail.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I can't recommend Mike Romano highly enough! He's truly the best attorney I've ever worked with. Despite my challenging circumstances of being in jail awaiting my next court date for violation of probation, Mike dedicated quality time to my case. Facing the possibility of a year behind bars, Mike worked tirelessly and managed to secure my release in just two months! His expertise and dedication are unparalleled, and hiring him was absolutely worth it. Thanks to Mike, I've been able to reclaim my life. Forever grateful for his exceptional service!

Grateful
When our son ran into some trouble with the law, a friend recommended Michael Romano. From the first conversation, Michael was incredibly helpful and was able to guide us through everything as smoothly as possible. He understood the process, told us what to expect and also seemed to really care. He’s a very experienced criminal lawyer, especially in dealing with young men. Michael went beyond what we expected. His clarity and kindness helped influence our son to take the right path. We are grateful to him.

A consummate professional
I had the good fortune of being represented by Mr. Romano on a case involving a petition to revoke my New York State pistol license. Mr. Romano was extremely well-versed in his knowledge of law and he provided me with a clear and honest understanding of the process. My case was successfully resolved. At all times during the process Mr. Romano was easy to get in touch with and patient and understanding in addressing my concerns. At the end of the case the judge commented that I could thank Mr. Romano as it was his professionalism and knowledge that resulted in the judge's final determination.

Outstanding Lawyer
When I was involved in an accident, I had no idea where to turn. A colleague suggested I contact Mike, which I did, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. He knew exactly what to do and guided me through the entire process. He is very knowledgeable and experienced, but in addition he has a very calm manner which was very helpful as I was very nervous. He knew exactly what to do next and guided me all the way through to a successful conclusion. I highly recommend him. P.

A Gifted Attorney Who I Highly Recommend
Michael was recommended to us by one of his colleagues. He worked very diligently and did not waiver from collecting all necessary information in order to get our son the best possible outcome for his criminal charge. Michael was direct and communicative in all aspects of the details of the case and the outcome of his efforts was more than we could hope for. Michael is a true gentleman with a great sense of commitment. I strongly recommend you hiring him to represent you.

Genuinely one of the best
Mike is one of the best attorneys you could have. I’ve seen that there were many important aspects that made him the best. He was great with communications, in person and over the phone- he was always quick to respond and keep you updated. He was very thorough and would double check to make sure he had documented all of the relevant details necessary to support me. He knew all of the right protocols that would greatly help my case. He created multiple mitigation packages which were the key to achieving my best possible outcome. He was very nice, respectful and a true gentlemen. You want Michael Romano as your attorney! I could confidently say that he could not have done a better job. His advice is on point and he is the most worthy attorney.

If you want results!!! Call Mr. Romano!!!
Mr. Romano is extremely professional, upfront about fees, no hidden cost, he will tell you your options. I used him for a criminal case and walked away free and innocent. He is very well know in all the courts by judges and prosecutors. When he walks in the court room he is respected by the law. He has even got previous criminal convictions overturned to clean my record.

Excellence Personified!!
Michael is a superior lawyer! He represented my family on three different occasions. He used his wisdom and knowledge, of the law, to cause us to be winners in the courtrooms every time. His level of expertise is awesome! In every case, Michael asked us to relax and allow him to do his job. He is great at what he does -- that is win! Michael Romano will always be our number one choice. We emphatically recommend him!!

kind, compassionate, responsive
I hired Michael Romano to consult (and ultimately defend) my child after what most would consider a "typical teenage incident" which to me was catastrophic as I had no experience with this type of behavior or charge. Michael was extremely kind and compassionate, returning my calls quickly, and offering reassurance and support whenever needed. He made himself available both by phone and by text. I would highly recommend him to anyone in a similar situation.

"I am a former prosecutor now practicing corporate law. Any and all criminal defense matters are given to Michael, who is immediately responsive, considered an authority in New York criminal law and practice, highly respected by judges and other attorneys, and very caring of his clients. The last matter he handled involved a week-end arrest and meeting with the client in a NYC holding cell, a midnight court appearance, and ultimate dismissal of all charges. He recently helped locate an attorney for someone facing felony charges in an upstate NY court located more than 5 hours away. He is the go-to attorney for any criminal defense matter in NY State. I highly recommend him."
