The best
My experience with Mr.Drishpoon was outstanding he is respectful operated quickly and professionally to resolve my situation. I was a little hesitant at first communicating with Mr.Drishpoon he has a direct approach but I guess that's how good lawyers are. He stood with me and made sure I understand everything that was happening even when he had to explain things two times or three times and he would not get upset for repeating himself. Since my case was making me face deportation. He took the time to listen to me. Get to know me a little and relize that I'm not such a bad person. I just made it stupid mistake. And he was able to convince the prosecutor that let me play to a less a charge. That would not affect my immigration status. For me money well spent. And hey he give me a hug at the end of my trial A lot of Lawyers out there would not do that.So that speaks a lot about his character. If would recommend him YES!

BEST INJURY LAWYER
Mr. Drieshpoon agreed to take my MVAIC case, in which many lawyers had denied me. He was very detailed with his responses and explained all possible outcomes. My case was resolved in a reasonable time frame and I was very pleased with the results. His assistant, Samantha Harrison always kept me up to date throughout the entire case. Highly recommended!!!

Amazing attorney!
We hired Mr. Michael to defend my father was a accuse of committing a crime. Mr. Dreishpoon explained us everything in our first meeting, very professional. Price for services very reasonable. He moved very quickly and gave us answers instantly. His was excellent in our case. And we are very grateful for his patience and dedication. For those who are reading this comment: my father's case was very traumatic, emotional drained and delicate one, but Mr. Michel listened and found a solution to it. Thanks to him we had a positive outcome. And I want you to know that Mr. Michel will give you immediate answers and find the best settlement options that can apply and help your case. The communication is easy and direct, bluntly, straight to the point. I would highly recommend him 100%. "I Knew I was right when I choose him".

Amazing
Mr. Dreishpoon’s professionalism and tenacity to help me when I was in a vulnerable position are truly commendable. I was involved in an automobile accident when visiting New York from a different state, and my case presented several significant challenges. Mr. Dreishpoon, and his team, not only were able to settle my case with the insurance company of the person who rear ended us, but also secured the full policy limits of the car I was riding in. I cannot say enough good things about my experience. They are absolutely excellent.
