Ben was extremely helpful and made the process easy
Ben was extremely helpful throughout the legal process and managed to reduce my ticket to a non-moving violation. Would definitely recommend him as representation for any speeding or traffic tickets!

Excellent Lawyer
I had a great experience working with Ben. He personally took the time to explain the entire process from start to finish and then quickly took care of everything. I am very happy with the results (no points!) and would highly recommend his services.

Best experience working with Ben
Best experience working with Ben. He handled my upstate NY ticket with ease. I was nervous about having to return to upstate ny hours away but Ben handled it and brought down all the charges against me. He was very thorough and explained everything to me along the way. Thank you so much!!

Satisfied client
i received a mailer from Bens office after i had incurred a serious traffic violation. I contacted Ben for a consultation. Consultation went very well, he explained all options available to me and presented me with a couple of possible acceptable outcomes. I decided to hire him to handle my case. Ben was able to get me the best possible outcome in this matter. I hope I don't need an attorney in the future, but if I do, I will definitely contact Ben first. I get the impression Ben really cares about his clients. I feel like he did an excellent job for me. And without breaking the bank. Thank you Ben. Your the best

Excellent traffic court attorney!
Ben Akbulut’s law office was a savior for a recent speeding ticket my daughter received. He was friendly and professional, putting her instantly at ease in a stressful situation. He speedily and effectively handled her violation, reducing her infraction from a 6-point violation to no points, saving us probably thousands in auto insurance premium increases over the next several years. Ben and his assistant David were fantastic to work with, quickly returning emails and phone calls and efficiently answering all of our questions during the process.

Great Service. Great results
Davids consultation from the office was professional and honest. They are very knowledgeable and provided very good customer service, and I was happy with the outcome at court. It was a tough case for me but Ben got the job done. If your in Nassau and need a lawyer, look no further. David and Ben are the best. Would highly recommend them to anyone in Long Island.

Saved the day.
My teen already had a few speeding tickets under this belt in a matter of 3 months. We had been to traffic court for each incident. The tickets were reduced and the fines were pretty hefty. My son again received a speeding ticket and it was inevitable that his license would be suspended. He needed to drive for work and school.Akbulut negotiated a different deal.

Traffic ticket
Ben has taken care of my tickets without me being at the court and he got them all cleared with a minimal fine. I had gone to the court three times before hand with no results beforehand. Thank you Ben.

Best advice possible
I came to Ben regarding a criminal matter, I was facing some serious felonies and he took his time to explain the legal process to me and helped me dispose of the case for a very fair price. I was going through some hard times and he was understanding and allowed me to relax and take a breath during a very stressful period in my life. Thank you again Ben :)

Highly recommended
A+ service, very easy to deal with. Called about a speeding ticket and everything was taken care of via phone/email with prompt response and professional handling. Fees were very reasonable, and the outcome of my ticket was exactly as it was predicted. Great job, would do business with again if I'm ever in a traffic court situation.
