David Levine best choice for criminal case
The best thing my wife did was when she hired Mr.Levine for my criminal case . Trustworthy, knowledgeable and very professional. It was do or die for me and Mr. Levine and GOD are the reasons I made it through. His secretary Monika was also very helpful , always communicating and available which made you feel a little more at ease . Anyone needing help with a criminal case this is the lawyer for you.

TRUST his judgement! He's an EXPERT
We so much appreciate how he handled a case for us! We did not know him or anyone that's used his services before. During our initial meeting, we knew he was the right person to represent our case. You need someone with specialized knowledge and experience and he certainly has both. We put our full faith and trust in him and relied on his judgement.......HE DELIVERED! YES, YES, YES we highly recommend him!!!!!

BEST of the Best
In June, 2014 my ex wife had me arrested for domestic violence then in August of the same year for violating order of protection. The prosecutor had 20 counts against me and opened cases for 3 different incidents. Everything was on the line my career as a Registered Nurse, my license and my freedom. David fought and calmed my family and me every step of the way at hearing the prosecutor was umming, she couldn't get a word in. All the charges we're dismissed and I paid a fine of less than $200. I was able to keep my career and freedom. I had doubts about my freedom and life, with David fighting for you don't need to worry.

You can't go wrong with David Levine's representation
David Levine is an excellent attorney who represents his clients with dedication and professionalism that is unparalleled. The case against me was one of complete nonsense as Dave explained to me how the legal process works and assured me of it being thrown out. He handled the case with expertise and confidence, kept me informed the whole time and assured me that I had nothing to worry about. Sure enough Dave was correct and the case was dismissed. Matters of the law are nothing to play with and should be taken seriously especially when charges are levied against you. That's why I recommend Dave Levine to anyone who is in need of a top flight attorney. You can't go wrong with David Levine as your mouth piece.

The best in the business. David Levine.
I was accused of forgery, fraud and grand theft. A friend recomended david to me. It ws the best thing i ever did to hire him. He is a professional and knows the law inside and out. I was looking at 3 to 5 years in jail. David worked hard. Never left me hanging and was constantly in touch with me from start to finish. In the end, i was found not guilty amd relieved of any jail time. Thank you David for your hard work and continiously assuring me " all would work out". This guy is top notch and is a gentelman to say the least. What an attourney and no a friend to whom i look up to as a man. Hire this attourney if you want the best representing you.

Brilliant and comforting
David Levine is a brilliant, personable man who helped save me from an unlawful arrest and spared me even having an unnecessary confrontation with the police. It was a very traumatic experience as a professional especially to have been accused of a crime that was related to a bank error. He was not only methodical in his approach to deliver me from this unjust situation, but also very comforting and humane yet professional.

What a great lawyer!
Mr. David Levine is an extremely knowledgeable, honest and confident attorney. He knows the criminal court system inside and out, and frankly speaking, he is one of the most dedicated people I've ever met. He gives excellent advice.

I am VERY grateful to have found him and to have such a person in my corner. So, Thank you Mr. Levine!!!!

Mr. Levine knows what's right for his clients and he informs them right off the bat. His long tenure from working on both sides of the law has given him skills and ability to resolve difficult cases. He uses the old school methods to handle todays new issues. walk softly, kind and gentle but when the battle begins he hits home runs. Highly recommended !!!

Amazing attorney!
Awesome Attorney Truly my savior! David came to my rescue after being tormented for years by a psychotic ex- boyfriend and his new girlfriend for years...he stuck through endless court dates by my side no matter how ridiculous and humiliating the charges were and after i was arrested over 20 times on all false allegations...David had all charges dropped and finally there was justice....they were charged with filing a false instrument and I am now fully protected against both parties....( that's the short version) David is the only attorney that could have grasped the concept of this case and it's extreme circumstances...his devotion and sincerity to me and my family throughout the entire case will never be forgotten.

David Levine began representing me over ten years ago probably longer. We srarted with my probation voilations and minor pot charges which lead to me referring him other federal and state cases .I watched him fight my assault case and the way he put everything he had into it and even if things didn't work out i still would never use another lawyer.He became a very close friend to me and i try to get him every case i could. I have complete confidence in him and would never use anyone else.

Highly recommended!!!!
David Levine has not only done a wonderful job handling my case, but he’s done something every bit as remarkable in regards to the peace of mind, hope and sheer focus he’s provided my family and myself throughout our entire ordeal. What sticks out most in our dealings with David is that he’s every bit as great of a human being as he is a lawyer, and folks he’s the cream of the crop when it comes to that. DO NOT HESITATE to hire this man to represent you!

Very Knowledgeable and Experienced
Without getting into detail, David helped me get out of a situation that the previous two attorneys I hired couldn't help with. It was a good ending for me. He is a little pricey, but well worth it.

Very grateful for David's dedication...
My husband was charged with federal criminal charges and we immediately contacted  David Levine. He is a Defense Lawyer with experience, who was available to take the case quickly and confidently, he went the extra mile to thoroughly investigate the case, and always tried for the best possible outcome.  He aggressively  defended my husband even before the case reached the courtroom! My husband signed a plea agreement in which he was facing prison time and due to David Levine's sentencing memorandum, the final result was time served which was fortunately only the day he was arrested and two years supervised release. We were very pleased with his services and I am very grateful for his dedication handling my husbands case.

a good outcome
People don't go to lawyers for frivolous needs. If you're hiring an attorney, you have an important legal need. Maybe you need a lawyer to draw up an important document or help you through a crisis. Choosing the right lawyer is an important decision and the right one can make all the difference. It's a substantial investment of time, money and other resources. David E. Levine was recommend by one of my friends he provided me with an outstanding outcome. Lets just say the previous attorney told me i was going to be doing 7 years and David Levine made a great deal 5 years probation. You cant beat that!!!!!!
