Better than we could have hoped for
We hired Stuart to represent my son for a speeding ticket, 68mph in a 50mph zone. But the officer added an additional charge for excessive speed in a speed zone, but he wasn’t in one. That added 2 more points for a total of 6 points. More money for the county and the insurance company. Stuart had the excessive speeding charge dismissed and somehow was able to get my 18 year old son into youth court. We took him to 2 defense driving programs, which he needed and we ended up with a no point parking ticket. You can’t beat that. Stuart is a reasonably priced lawyer that provides tremendous results. I would recommend him to everyone. Thank you Stuart.

Best criminal attorney

Amazing Criminal Lawyer, Everything Dismissed. Wish I met sooner
I had two prior lawyers representing me for false criminal complaints/ arrests with orders of protection before meeting Stuart Stuart told me what he wanted to do from the start, unfortunately I spent about a year a half with other attorneys not giving me the guidance and expertise I needed. I also of course spent money with previous attorneys with no real satisfaction. Stuart came very highly recommended from one of the most well known law firms in NYC representing high profile cases. They told me Stuart was my guy. I could see a difference in the approach when Stuarts Firm represented me in court. I already began to feel at ease but anxious to have this all behind me. Well it turns out that the best scenario, actually happened. All my cases were dismissed. I could not ask for more ( Besides being introduced to Stuart Earlier). When I met with Stuart I also realized that he was very smart, he had edges, he knew how to maneuver unlike other criminal attorneys which do not have experience in all facets of criminal law.

Trust Stuart!
I do know other law areas where Stuart works, but 2 times used his service to solve my traffic and parking tickets. Never met him in person. Did not waste my time; all documents between us was exchanging by email. Timely responds, professional ethic and most important; his representation did not hurt my driver licence record. My brother recommended; they lives in same community. Now I recommend to others - use Stuart!

I highly recommend Stuart Austin as an attorney
When I got a speeding ticket that could have resulted in six points on my license, I contacted Stuart Austin. He took care of everything, from the paperwork to the court appearance. He explained everything to me in clear and understandable terms, and I felt confident that going to him was the right move. Mr. Austin was able to reduce the ticket so that I only had to pay a fine, and I did not receive any points on my license. I would highly recommend Stuart Austin to anyone in a similar situation!

Not even for free
Hello I'm Robert I had Stewart as an 18b attorney me and him did not see eye to eye so I asked him to ask the judge to take him off my case on my behalf he refused telling the judge that I wanted to address her myself I simply told the judge look at how he's acting and she kindly took him off my case this was so weird I'm just glad I didn't have to pay out of my pocket
