Top Notch Attorney
I have used Mr. Villanueva a few times now and have been completely satisfied every time. He is professional and is very responsive in answering his client's calls and emails. I would highly recommend using him.

Great Attorney!
I had a difficult case related to speeding. I was hoping to pay only a fine, without points. Mr. Villanueva did an excellent job and my case was dismissed.

Extremely helpful
Paul was terrific. He handled this from me out of state. It was an on-going process but he kept me informed and was on top of things from the start. He was very realistic in his consultation and didn't over promise but in the end he achieved the most optimal result for my case. I very much appreciated this. I couldn't be happier and would recommend his services to everyone.

Speeding Tickets
I used Paul for two separate speeding tickets. The first one he had reduced to a lesser violation and the second one he completely beat for me. Very professional and quick response. BTW Both times I called him literally the day before the hearings and he was still able to do it. I will be using him going forward.

Most helpful
Mr. Villanueva was very helpful. When he saw that the judge wouldn’t have ruled in my favor, he had the case postponed for a future date. Months prior to the new date, I was informed that the case was dismissed. Hopefully I won’t need an attorney for traffic cases again, but if I do, I will contact Mr. Villanueva.

Excellent service
Paul successfully defended a traffic ticket at the notoriously difficult Brooklyn TVB. He was attentive honest, and willing to go the extra mile on my behalf. The epitome of a professional, I can't thank him enough.

One of the Best
Paul has beat many cases for me over the years. He has never failed yet to get speeding tickets off my record. I've had about 5 traffic attorneys over the past 8 years, and Mr. Villanueva is hands down the best.

Attentive, Authentic, and Professional
I met Paul a few years ago at the DMV when I was trying to reschedule my hearing due to a schedule conflict. I had landed myself with my first TVB Cell Phone ticket and I approached him and asked if he could help. He reviewed my ticket with me on the spot and was very honest with expectations since it's NYC TVB and it's all or nothing. He is very professional and laid out all possible scenarios. He did not promise anything specific as we can't predict 100% the outcome of anything but shared with me his strategy in handling the case. I felt a strong sense of confidence from him and I felt that he would definitely represent me well. The result of the cell phone ticket was "Not Guilty" and I could not be happier. He is very responsive and always gets back to you within a timely fashion on email, phone, or text. If you want the best possible representation for traffic related issues, tap on Paul.

Amazing attorney!
Mr. Villanueva was an amazing attorney to me. He worked diligently to help me with a speeding ticket that my previous attorney failed to do. He gave me great guidance in terms of options i had and always responded to me whenever I reached out (even during a pandemic!) He ended up getting me no suspension which i desperately needed due to a very fast speeding ticket which I thank him so much for. He by far is the best lawyer i have ever hired in his field and I would strongly recommend him for any traffic tickets, he will get the job done!
