Very early in my career as an attorney, while engaged in negotiating the terms of a very serious contract, my opposing counsel was apparently taken back with some aghast.  He made this apparent by stating, "for someone who has only been admitted to practice law for a few days, you're pretty damn tenacious."  I suppose that he was reaffirming several of the qualities that I has long satisfied my clients and enraged my family - my gumption, persistance, and neverending relentlessness.

That lawyer's observation set the tone for my subsequent work and practice.  I have developed a reputation as a "pit bull" as a result of my zealous, aggressive, and effective advocacy, which I always employ on behalf of every one of my clients.

I also aim to separate myself from the lawyers that everyone jokes about.  I have been told that I'm much easier to speak to than many other attorneys.  I have been told that I "don't look like a lawyer."  That's all very true.  I believe that candid communication is extremely important in every case - it is essential to building trust between attorneys and clients.

As indicated by my work over the course of my career, I am constantly striving to build and maintain trust, while always providing the best possible legal representation for each and every single one of my clients.  And I have been very successful in doing so - persistently achieving excellent results across the board, from criminal defense to debt collection to business transactions and beyond.

One of the most important elements of my practice is the goal of providing peace of mind to every person that humbly seeks my counsel.  I want you to be able to sleep at night.  It actually matters to me.  The better you sleep, I sleep.  Your problems become my problems merely by virtue of the business that I have nurished and constructed.  Take that weight off of your shoulders and leave it here.  I'll use that weight to build momentum and fight for the best solutionsin your case.  That's my job.

Thanks for your interest in my practice. Please don't hesitate to give me a call to discuss your legal issues or to set up a free consultation at your convenience.

No prison time!
So I was charged with 2 different misdemeanor weapons possession charges for a firearm and a felony ‘robbery displays firearm’ - and George got me a probation plea agreement with zero prison time! I’ve known George a long time and he’s always been a hell of a friend, but thankfully - he’s an even better attorney.

Total Professional
George was an absolute stellar lawyer and listener. He always set aside time to guide us in a productive manner during a difficult period with our former landlord. It was truly a life saver to have his guidance during such a stressful time. He’s someone with spot on ideas that will lead you in the right direction, and can craft a great email when the time is needed. Also has super cool style!

A Great Lawyer
I am forever grateful to George Grasso. I was about to enter into a business transaction. All I can say is that asking George to look into it at the last minute saved me a fortune and potentially years of legal headaches! His expertise, professionalism and understanding know no bounds. It's a comfort to know that when legal advice or services are needed, that George Grasso is my lawyer!

Excellent lawyer
Well I just want to tell anyone who is fighting a legal battle George is probably the best money can buy. He is kind courteous and always there and on time, but more importantly he is very good at what he does. I was going through I had the Mestic violence case that he was able to get rid of only after two court dates. I highly recommend him if you’re in need of a criminal attorney

Mr. Grasso
I was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the 4th degree, NYPL 265.01(1) for having a pocket knife that was slightly more than a 4 inch blade. It was obtained after an illegal search and I was arrested. I hired Mr. Grasso as my Attorney by word of mouth. The end resulted in a misdemeanor being dropped down to a fine and 30 hours of community service. Now most any attorney can help reduce charges, or have them dropped. The reason that I am writing this review and highly recommend Mr. Grasso to anyone is due to his communication skill set . Very, very important in my opinion. This gentleman is quite busy on a weekly basis with different people and cases, but not once did I ever feel left out or put on the back burner during the process. Anytime I needed to contact him or ask any questions, he replied immediately and if not within a few hours later that day. I can imagine that an Attorney’s life can be a bit overwhelming with everyone trying to get ahold of you at the same time, but Mr. Grasso has a unique ability to be there working with you the whole way through. Thank you George Grasso once again, you do your job extremely well, and I am very grateful to have hired you as my Attorney.

Client
I hired George Grasso to help me with a speeding ticket I received. George explained everything I needed to know about the process going forward. He was responsive to all my questions and concerns. He went to court on my behalf and was able to reduce my fine. He then followed up with an issue that was necessary to close my case. George is an intelligent, conscientious and helpful attorney. I highly recommend him.

Very respecful
George has been my attroney through out this past year. I'm not a criminal , I have been going through a difficult divorce. He has got my criminal matters out right dismissed,while being there for me and understanding my family matters as well. Although George doesn't do family cases/divorce. He has worked closely and professional with my other attorneys with full knowledge and understanding of all matters. He has been nothing but professional and has always followed through with all that was promised . I have refered George to other friends of mine with similar situation. It has been my experience that the best way to thank someone is a referral.

Case Dismissed
George Grasso is friendly, thorough and professional. His keen advisement and persistence in court was crucial to getting my reckless driving case completely outright dismissed. I highly recommend his services.

A Genuine Person and Diligent Lawyer Who Looks Out For His Clients
Even before he became a lawyer, George Grasso was a great friend. When it was time for my family to purchase our first house, I did not hesitate to make him my real estate lawyer. Twice, we came close to making an offer on some co-op properties. George reviewed the co-op's financials thoroughly and found red flags that would have cost us money in the long term. I really appreciated his concern to protect us. Eventually, we got lucky enough to buy a house at a great price. George was instrumental with that purchase, diligently coordinating with the mortgage and title companies. I also had a TON of questions during that time, and he was happy to answer every one of them to alleviate my concerns. George has also helped me with other things like a traffic violation and setting up the LLC for my IT consulting business. I'm happy to have him on my team!

a true professional
Having been ill advised previously and paid Alot of money for nothing, I had spoken to George grasso about the issue I was dealing with. He not only took the time to explain everything he was doing, but did it in a timely manner. He was fair to me with his billing and in general made me feel confident in him. He helped me and went the distance for me, where as my previous attorney wouldn't. . Im confident I would call George again and always recommend him to anyone who asks

Expert legal advice, professional and easy to work with.
I was renting out the bottom floor of a 2 story home in Long Island. A few months into the lease I noticed water leaking into a room, followed by an accumulation of mold. I first tried to reach out to my landlord on my own and was given the run-around and some stories, all of which lead to the conclusion that the landlord was not going to take care of the problem appropriately. At this point I was furious and wanted to seek legal action against my landlord but was not sure of my rights. I sent emails out to a few sources I found online and was pleased to see a quick reply from George Grasso. After explaining my situation to George, he went right to work for me. Right off the bat George seemed to have good knowledge of this area and did a solid job of breaking down the legalese for me. As I was quite stressed, George did me a tremendous favor and took control of the situation which immediately defused a lot of my tension. George made sure to keep me in the loop throughout the process and let me know what he was doing before he did it which I really appreciated. George drafted a letter which explained to the landlord that I had retained his services and what my rights were. Upon reading the letter myself I felt very confident I had made the right decision in going with George and that I would ultimately come out ahead. The same day I contacted George, he had his team deliver a letter to my landlord. That night I received a call from George informing me that the landlord would like to schedule a day to start the mold remediation process and repairs to the areas causing the leak. My landlord took care of the problem and has been very attentive to my needs since then. George continued to check in with me to make sure the repairs were being done at my convenience. Since the resolution of this matter George kindly touched base to make sure everything was going smoothly between my landlord and I. I really cannot say enough about how great George was throughout the entire process, he responded quickly, had extemporaneous knowledge of the topic, he crafted a well versed letter and took the time to clearly explain the entire situation, my rights and the process we would go through to reach an end that benefited me. I would recommend George Grasso to anyone seeking legal advice.

Fantastic Lawyer
George was extremely dependable and professional. His responsiveness and dedication not only to the work he does, but also to the client provides a sense of comfort and security. I was generally uneducated when it came to the legal process, specifically in New York City, but George did a great job keeping me updated and helping me understand how and why things were being done. I truly believe George loves what he does, and it certainly shows. His passion, combined with his knowledge, produces results - something that is not particularly an easy thing to accomplish in NYC.

George is my go to Guy.
George Grasso came highly recommended to me from a family member. When we talked on the phone just going over my situation I immediately felt like I was in good hands. Even though I was not able to go to his office after going through surgery and he being in Long Island and me in S.I. He drove out to see me and my husband to personally go over what had happened. He was very sensitive to what I had gone through. He did all the research and getting copies of all necessary papers and reports all the while keeping me informed every step of the way. He was extremely caring and kind and worked very hard at representing me. My husband and I were very satisfied with the outcome of my case and will highly recommend him to any one I know who needs an attorney. If ever I find myself in need of an attorney he will be the first call I make. Thank you so much for all your support and help.

Excellent Service and Results
Mr. Grasso recently got dismissed for me a texting while driving traffic ticket in the Bronx. He has an extensive and thorough understanding of the law, which was only surpassed by his diligence and tenacity in pursuing this action to completion. Professional, courteous, and reliable, I would recommend George Grasso to anyone in need of representation.
