  2. DUI and DWI
    20%
    The DWI laws in New York are very complicated and have both criminal penalties and civil implications regarding the ability to drive. There are numerous penalties and a person who is charged with DWI in New York must be aware of all their rights and all the consequences involved. It is important to make sure that the arrest was done properly and that all the tests were conducted properly. An experienced attorney can help make sure that every aspect is looked at carefully.

  4. Personal injury
    20%
    When someone is injured, it is bad enough for the person and their family but when it is due to the negligence of someone else, it is important that the injured party is protected. Most serious injuries that occur will leave the injured party without wages to support themselves and their family. It is important to the recovery process to know that the financial security is available with a good personal injury attorney.

Would highly recommend!
I would highly recommend Mr. DeUrso for family court matters. I had a very complex case and his attention to detail was very impressive. While going through this case, it was an emotional roller coaster and Mr. DeUrso was sensitive to the stress that I was under. He was always courteous and professional. I was most impressed by his courtroom demeanor and technique, which showed his experience and he was able to get a successful result for me, which I was very happy about.

Professional and efficient
Darren was so easy to work with, efficient, great communicator and professional. My husband received a speeding ticket for 8 points. I found Darren online and I’m glad I did. He was able to relieve us of the 8 point ticket. I referred so many of my friends and family.

He works hard for you.
He gives you the advice you need, straight. Hard working, resourceful, and personable; Darren DeUrso is a good man. He expects the best from others and we can only do the same, as clients. He's also very prompt with his responses, even on weekends. He's the first lawyer I've ever hired and I was lucky to find him.

The perfect man for the job.
Darren was very helpful and honest. I had divorce about three years ago and he helped me then. Back at the end of Aug 2016 called him in a panic because my ex decided to move my kids away from me and he was right there willing to take my case and from there in Sept 2016 I was awarded my kids and by Feb 2017 it was made permanent. I'm very grateful that I was able to find someone so knowledgeable in the law. He is very quick on getting things done. I would recommend him very highly. He lets you know what he recommends and doesn't recommend but in the end he lets you decide what you feel is correct.

Darren DeUrso is fantastic
Long story short, I found myself in a situation where I needed a lawyer for family court. I dreaded this day and had interviews with a few different lawyers that truly rubbed me the wrong way. Then a family friend had recommended that I meet with Darren DeUrso. I couldn't have asked for a more down to earth, sharp, and intelligent man to work with. The main thing I appreciate about having Darren represent me is how comfortable he makes me feel, and his overall knowledge of the system and how things work. I actually learned a lot working with Darren throughout this process and so far it has been MUCH less of a nightmare than I thought it would be. There is no way I would feel this way if I had went with another lawyer. I knew after our first meeting that he was the right attorney for me and I have no regrets hiring him. I'm actually extremely thankful that I came in contact with Darren DeUrso as I wouldn't be in the position I'm in without him.

Great Traffic Violation & Family Law Attorney
Represented me on traffic violation issues. An up front, no nonsense attorney with reasonable rates. Mr. DeUrso negotiated reasonable pleas on my traffic violations. I have recommended him to many friends who have matters pending in family court & they have in turn recommended him to their friends. I highly recommend Mr. DeUrso.

Excellent
Darren was a great help in resolving my issues with my court appearance. In fact while we're waiting for my parents a state Supreme Court judge asked Darren for his opinion on a case and how to resolve it

Goes above and beyond
Mr. DeUrso is not only very knowledgable and experienced in Family Court law but he is also very understanding of the issues outside the legal situation. I felt he went above and beyond his responsibilities as a lawyer and really assisted my family in trying to work through some very difficult situations. He was very accessible and was integral in helping us resolve a very difficult situation.
