Incredible Experience
What an incredible experience hiring Matisyahu Wolfberg. I had years of piled up traffic tickets as well as a number of more serious tickets such as driving while suspended. All in all approx 20 or so neglected tickets spanning over the last 10 or so years. Matisyahu quickly tracked down all of my tickets, got me in front of live judges via zoom and did an absolutely incredible job pleading down my cases and minimizing the damages of my past. 10/10. I would absolutely recommend anyone who needs assistance with traffic tickets to hire Mr. Wolfberg. Extremely efficient and respectful.

speeding ticket with 6 points and fines
I got a speeding ticket in The Bronx. I hired Mati and he took care of the rest! He was diligently on my case and kept me posted along the way, without needing me to keep following up. And, he won my case totally! Appreciate your help Mati. Thank you!

A real professional lawyer!
Even before getting the terrific outcome, it was a pleasure to connect to Matis, I felt like someone is really taking it seriously and will do anything to satisfy me, but now after the special deal he arranged, I am very satisfied with everything and surely endorse him to others.

Fantastic !!
Mr Wolfberg, Esq. did an amazing job ! I never could have expected the results he got. He took care of everything start to finish. All he needed was a copy of the ticket. Everything resolved, and reduced to a fine. No points or any other issues. I recommend highly !!!

MR.
MR Wolfberg worked his magic ONCE AGAIN and converted a potentially very costly and very high point penalty to a mere ZERO points and a very small fine! HE IS THE BEST!

UNBELIEVABLE!!! Thank you!
My son received THREE MOVING VIOLATIONS in Tuxedo NY. Speeding 11 Point, and Fail to signal 2 Point, and Unsafe Lane Change 3 point. Guaranteed suspension of license had he been found guilty! Verdict: DISMISSED!! No fine no points no nothing! It is as if it never happened.

Got speeding ticket dismissed! Bronx, NY
Matisyahu Wolfberg got my Speeding 4 Point ticket in the Bronx TVB dismissed. Given by a nypd cop on Grand Concourse (bronx, ny). This is a tremendous outcome. No fine no points no nothing! It is as if it never happened. It's actually my 2nd ticket case won by mr. Wolfberg. The first one was resolved years ago in upstate ny.

Easy to deal with and got the job done
Clear, concise communication. We had a short phone call and a couple of emails over a few months that it took. The settlement with the court was very favorable, much better than expected. A simple, hassle-free engagement with a great outcome. I'd give Mr. Wolfberg more than five stars if I could!

The best attorney
I got a ticket on the FDR drive which is known as a hard place to fight the ticket after recommendations I gave the ticket to Matisyahu to handle and the results screams, totally dismissed, no points no fees. I am glad I got the best lawyer. Thank you Matisyahu.

Highly Recommended
I recommend wholeheartedly the services of the law firm of Matis Wolfberg, Esq. After getting a speeding ticket while traveling the New York State Thruway, I faced some serious penalties. Matis advised me wisely, and correctly. He helped to have it being pled down to a non-moving violation. You might be wondering if a lawyer is necessary to handle these types of violations: the answer is an unqualified "yes". Particularly if there are charges that are beyond simple speeding (0-15 mph over the limit), that might involve any type of impairment, or particularly high speed offenses. Without Matis' services, it's not fun to consider how things might have ended up. And just to give you a sense of how important it is to use an attorney, my wife and I have a law firm ourselves. We considered doing it ourselves for about 3 seconds, but, our practice does not include defense of these types of matters, and given our familiarity with legal processes, we understand clearly how one can be at a huge disadvantage when facing a local prosecutor, judge, and state trooper without the best legal representation, which Matis provides.

Does what he says he will do
Matis explained his fees and his approach clearly and the case was resolved in a manner that he had outlined in my first call with him. He is always quick to respond to calls and emails as well.

Never fails to represent
If you have a speeding ticket, this is your go-to attorney who knows the system and does this day in and day out. He is honest, upfront, sets clear expectations, and delivers. While there are no guarantees, this is the best advocate to have on your side.
