Suspended license and registration
Michael took all my information. Step by step he went through. Calls and e-mails were our form of communication, at the beginning and the end. I’m very much satisfied with my results. My license has been taken care of. No car for me at the moment. A lesson learned. Thank you again Michael. I have a Christmas present with your name on it.

Michael Alpert - Lawyer Review
I hired Michael to prepare my estate documents (Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney and Living Will w/ Health Care Proxy). Michael was very thorough explaining the process. He was very responsive to all of my requests. Michael is extremely personable and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him for future clients.

Amazing Attorney
My Alpert has represented my son for over two years. He is very professional, congenial, empathetic and fair. My 20-year-old son with lack of insite ,experience and wisdom made a grave mistake. He bought a car decided to try it out. At the time ,the car had no insurance, and my son had a permit. Unfortunately that day he took the car and he crashed into a gate. Thank God no one was hurt, He was issues over 10 tickets/ summons. Mr.Alpert, with the use of his years of experience, insight, and capability, was able to dispute the tickets, and my son, who eventually got his license, was not suspended. The initial tickets were disputed but the last one which my son drove with out insurance had to go to trial. By the grace of God and Mr. Alpert’s expertise, we were victorious. I was worried and would call Mr. Alpert frequently; he always returned my text and calls.He also took time to talk to my son . I have had the unfortunate experience of having dishonest, incompetent, self-absorbed, disgraceful attorneys. Mr. Alpert is the opposite of the aforementioned.. Mr. Alerts fee’s were fair and reasonable. I highly recommend him.I can't thank him enough.

Passing away without a will.
Mr Alpert was very knowledgeable for my particular needs. My wife passed away and we never got around to making a will. Michael knew all the steps which are many, to arrange for quick and through results. Michael slowly walked me through, and took the time to explain everything . Very professional.

Fantastic!
I highly recommend Michael. He did a great job handling my speeding ticket - in fact, he got it dismissed. He was great about communicating with me and answering all of my questions promptly. I couldn't be happier with the outcome or he handled things. It was a great decision to hire him!

Moving Violation completed
I have a 10 month old son and a laundry list of things to get done on the daily. I got a stop sign violation ticket and was completely stressed out because it meant I would get points on my license and would have to pay fines that I didn't want to incur. I looked up moving violation info from my phone and saw Michael Alpert's info in a link and clicked so I could ask a couple of questions. He contacted me directly and I was able to explain my situation, he listened and gave me my options which helped me a ton! Michael Alpert Esq is trustworthy attorney who is clear in his explanations and is competent due to his experience and timely follow up of your case! I recommend Michael Alpert Esq especially if you don't have the time to handle things yourself. Especially during these difficult times Michael Alpert Esq is the man to get the job done.

Absolutely amazing lawyer
I contacted Mr. Alpert in hopes that he can help us with the multiple misdemeanors my husband incurred while driving our vehicle in which Ez-pass suspended the registration. Both of us were obviously concerned about his court cases, and what could happen. There was a huge chance he could lose his license, get a large amount of points on his license, and have to pay those hefty court fees. Mr. Alpert explained what we should expect and what he thought he could do. He kept in touch during the entire process and even made it that my husband didn’t have to appear at court. In the end he had so many charges dismissed (more than 7). My husband didn’t wind up with any points on his license and his misdemeanors were dropped to a simple traffic violation. This left us paying only a small court fee and surcharge which was nothing. Literally nothing!! I couldn’t believe it!! This is the most phenomenal lawyer I have ever had the pleasure of working with, he truly goes above and beyond! If you need a lawyer I suggest you hire him you won’t be sorry!!

A day in traffic court
We hired Michael after having a phone consultation regarding traffic tickets for my brother. He met us at court 2 days later. I highly recommend Michael he was professional and had everything done the first time we went to court. He did exactly what he promised to do. He also had a great sense of humor. He was a pleasure to do business with.

Best Lawyer !
His professionalism and knowledge is very noticeable. He is a lawyer that has great communication skills and is the furthest thing from a robber baron. Each case I’m notified on how the process will be done and given reminders on the stages that we’ve reached during the case. I’ve used his services for multiple cases and every single one of them had reduced my charges to being dropped. Everybody I know gets recommended to him. Would not switch for any other lawyer unless it would be his kids haha.
