The quintessential professional
Anthony is an extraordinary attorney, plain and simple! Language will not and can not adequately describe the exceptional work he has done for me and the many that I have referred to him! Not only is he an extraordinary attorney, he is an exceptional person who makes every effort to put a client at ease during a very difficult time! I have and will continue to refer individuals to him, knowing that they are in great hands! He is the textbook example of "the quintessential professional!"

Anthony is an amazing person and friend. On the first day I met Anthony, it felt like he was a part of my family and most of all was like a father to me and my family. He made me feel comfortable and relax at all times by telling me "you don't have worry unless I start to worry" Mr Colleluori is a professional person who knows his business like no one else. He communicated with the DA in a professional manner which allowed them to work on my case with no problems. I was facing a much more serious outcome but Anthony worked his magic and got me the best possible outcome that even I could not imagine getting. Anthony worked until the end of my sentence to make sure I was out on time and spent a whole day in court to make sure I was out the day that they agreed on. That was in march this year, since then Anthony have become a very close friend of mine, he make sure all is still well with me and my family and only wishes us the best in the future. Anthony will always be an important part of my life. Thank you very much Mr. Colleluori for all you did for me, I will never forget you.

The Ultimate Protector
Mr. Colleluori has helped me and my family with a few cases now. Each one with the best result and/or outcome we could have possibly imagined. Whenever I need any protection or whenever I feel as if I'm unsafe, he is the best and most knowledgeable person to turn to. I had recently undergone unsafe working conditions and didn't know what to do. He was strong and aggressive about the situation without losing care, understanding, and compassion. I would highly recommend Mr. Colleluori as your lawyer; I can't thank him enough for everything he has done for me.

I have been represented by Anthony on two occasions and, in both circumstances, he was able to achieve results. His direct approach lets you know where things stand, and he has the knowledge and reputation to provide skilled representation.

A Great Attorney and Friend
I would highly recommend Mr. Colleluori to anyone who is in need of an attorney. During times of duress, you need a friend with a heart of gold that is willing to fight tooth and nail for you. Mr. Colleluori exemplifies the finest traits one could ask for in a lawyer. His honesty and pragmatism helped me better understand the legal process and what I could expect from DA. After poring over my case, night and day, Mr. Colleluori was able to get me a sentencing far more lenient than what I could have expected. A criminal misdemeanor was dropped down to a mere few hours of community service and there were no permanent repercussions with my school. He will never stop fighting for you until you get the best possible result from your case. The time and care that Mr. Colleluori puts into every single one of his clients is something that you can't get with any other attorney.

Words aren't enough to thank Anthony for helping my husband and keeping our family together. Mr. Colleluori from the get go was hands on in the case, and always willing to answer any questions I had at any given time. Very professional, respectful, and knowledgeable in his work. I am forever grateful to have met Anthony and hiring to help my husband's case, he not only got us the best outcome possible but more importantly we get to be a family and raise our kids together. I don't think that any amount of words I write today can actually ever repay Anthony for his hard work and dedication. I recommend him to anyone who needs a phenomenal lawyer. Mr. Colleluori not only "talks the talk" but he "walks the walk". Thank you Anthony and all who worked on my husband's case from Raiser and Kenniff, I can't thank you enough for all that you have done. May God bless you all.

I would highly recommend Anthony Collelouri! He restored my wedding video and memories that I was able to send to my family in another country! I was totally screwed by my wedding vidiographer who got paid for the job but after numerous promises and excuses for 2 years he decided not to give me my video at all, changed his business name, blocked my number and disappeared. Nobody could help and everybody said nothing could be done and I got scammed...BUT Anthony! He met with me, listened to the whole story and promised to find the guy and get the footage. For the whole year Anthony's people had been looking for the guy in 2 different states but he was nowhere to be found and was not responding to any letters or phone calls. But Anthony stayed persistent and did everything possible. To make a long story short, the videographer personally drove to Anthony's office and brought the finished wedding footage! Anthony is a very experienced, professional and honest person who actually cares for his clients and does whatever it takes to help. He has a heart of gold!!! I feel safe knowing he is here in case I need help in future. I would definitely recommend Anthony to anyone who needs a really good lawyer who gets the job done !

Tony knows how to handle business.
Extremely Experienced. Not easily intimidated in the court room. Communicates and keeps you informed. Hired Raiser and Kenniff (the firm he works with) and had a pretty serious case that went to trial. He handled the trial quickly, professionally, and flawlessly. Would not hesitate to hire him or his firm if I ever needed to retain an attorney in the future.

Response from Anthony Colleluori March 28, 2016
Thanks Demitry! This was a case of police brutality and Demo was wrongfully accused by a lying police officer of assaulting the officer and resisting (an unlawful) arrest. Those types of cases are always dicey especially in Nassau County NY, but the jury saw right through it and acquitted Demitrious in record time!! Now he can sue the county and the cop for police brutality false arrest malicious prosecution and be made whole .

Fantastic Attorney
Anthony Colleluori is a phenomenal attorney. I had a child custody/child support case going and after another attorney screwed me up Mr. Colleluori was a God sent. He fought for my family and I as if we were part of his family. He made me feel as though he truly cared. He returned all my phone calls and emails in a timely manner. He was always up for the challenge and when we had court dates he was always well prepared and knew the facts without having to be spoon fed. Mr. Colleluori and his staff are well organized and full of incite. Outside of court he is a gentle soul but once in court he is ready to fight. I will always be indebted to Mr. Colleluori and his staff for all they did for my family and I. Best attorney I ever saw hands down!

I received the treatment I needed instead of the punishment I deserved
As a single mother I found myself in situations (I put myself into) trying to make ends meet. Finally I got caught up in something that would jeopardize my freedom. I googled criminal lawyers and Mr. Colleluori popped up. What a blessing!! From start to finish this man and his associates were by my side ensuring not only that I got the best outcome of my situation, but that I also worked on myself, as a person. My case was larceny case and I had a history of assault. My case was moved from criminal court to treatment court in Nassau County, NY where I was able to complete anger management and have my case dismissed upon the completion of my treatment requirements. Mr. Colleluori made sure that I got the services I needed instead of the punishment I deserved. That's what separates him from the rest. I am now attending college, working full time (in women's prison reform), and I am able to maintain my household as a single mother. Although I did the work, it was Mr. Colleluori who was there to guide and support me as my lawyer through this transition. There are not enough words to express how grateful I am. Thank you.

Very happy with the otucome.
This was a complicated DWI case i placed myself in a ugly situation. Anthony was compassionate and professional this type of situation was not new to him. He is not distant and cold like some other lawyers i interviewed. Anthony cares and treated me like a human being. He helped me in various way to grow from this experience.

Heart of Gold
I highly recommend Mr. Colleluori for anyone in need of an attorney. Mr. Colleluori took the time to listen to my story, sympathized with my plight and then offered to handle my difficult case Pro Bono after the first attorney I had was pushing me to walk away from it without justice being done. He has always made time for me when I needed to talk to him, whether it was about my case or just life's difficulties in general. He is more than just knowledgeable in the law. As kind hearted as Mr. Colleluori is, he was also tough as nails when it came to representing me and got me the deserved end result. He is quite a force to be reckoned with when pushed past politeness. Yet he was nothing but caring and professional when in my presence.

Anthony Colleluori stepped up to the plate.
After going through many lawyers in which direction we should go. Anthony came in and took control of the situation. This was a discrimination case that no other lawyer wanted to tackle. There were times when we though that justice was not going to be given for the violations thrust at me. Anthony came in did all he could to make this case heard in such a proffesional way, that the result was a victory for those who are discriminated upon in the workplace. With Anthony's help our case is now going to be in the Federal records for future victims to be able to resourse their litigations againts those violators who feel that they are above the law.

"I had a good friend in NY call me on a Sunday looking for an attorney. It was an emergency. I knew the right person for the job - Tony. I called him and talked to him Sunday morning. By Sunday evening, he had talked to my friend. Tony did an amazing job for my friend and I received numerous calls and emails telling me how great he was. He resolved the matter better than an any of us could have hoped for. I knew I could trust Tony to take care of a good friend, but he went above and beyond all of my expectations. I highly recommend Tony for anyone in NY who wants the best litigator!"
