John is the BEST
I hired Mr. Campo to clear up some old suspensions on my DL and he worked quickly and diligently to get my cases resolved. I recommend him to anyone needing assistance, don't wait!

A true miracle worker
I faced 2 back to back high speed tickets as a teenager one with a juniors license and I thought my license was gone. John managed to not only prevent my license from being suspended while having an 8 point speed on a juniors license by getting only 2 points, but he managed to do it a second time. Not a few months later, I received another ticket for another 8 point speed and John got it down to 3 points, something other lawyers told me was not possible. I highly recommend John because he is also a quick responder for communication and sets realistic expectations. Excellent attorney and man.

The Best Lawyer In New York
John Campo was the most convenient and comforting lawyer I could ask for. He made me always feel like everything was gonna be just fine. Through all the complexities of my case they were able to figure it out and help me pay with no points without showing up to court . I would recommend them to anyone who wants a stress free and professional legal experience. Nothing but the best!

Wonderful and Great lawyer
I was referred to John by a close friend and was thoroughly impressed! Great at staying in contact as I had moved away from the area he works in. He is courteous and down to earth. He obtained documents for me, and did so in a timely manner, as well as gave me insight while filling out certain state and local applications. Would definitely work with him again. The person who recommended him had traffic tickets that were all taken care of, without fines or points.

Excellent counsel
John handled my sons case for DWI.....the case against him was very strong, but John was able to negotiate a very favorable and fair outcome for us. We were very please all the way around....John was responsive, knowledgeable and took time to explain all options to us in detail. Would highly recommend John and would not hesitate to recommend him to friends/family

Great job john I thank u and ur firm
John helped me out in a real messy situation and even when I was spiraling out of control he stayed calm and patient and kept me from acting out. He took the time to guide me and help me on many occasions due to the same on going case. He was very reasonable priced for the level of Service that was provided. John came recommended to me and all I can say is thank you and I would definetly RECOMMEND him and his firm for an excellent job.

Fantastic Results
John Campo and his team were extremely knowledgeable and helpful in regards to my case. They took the time to explain my options and really made me feel at ease. They worked hard on my behalf and were able to come out with a favorable outcome. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone needing a good lawyer.

Got me out of a world of trouble!
I hired John a few months back after he was referred to me by someone else. I had a bunch of charges for traffic infractions, aggravated unlicensed operator, driving with a suspended license, and no insurance. He was able to plea my case down to a reasonable fine, get my suspensions lifted and no criminal charges. It was a pleasure dealing with him and hopefully won't have to but will use him again if needed. I would recommend him to anyone.
