Grateful
I had to recently used the services of John Healy for tickets that both of my son's had recently received. John's expertise, affordability, and swift resolve will undoubtedly allow me to recommend him to anyone and everyone who needs an attorney. I only wish I found him for my ticket awhile ago. Live and learn. Thank you Mr. Healy.

Knows the law
I did not hire John but used his services as a court appointed attorney. We had a brief consult and he then stood with me before the judge. Things went just as he had said I was extremely pleased with the results.

Highly Recommend
John Healy was very helpful in a recent case of mine which was just dismissed. The case itself was over a year long in which John was very patient with me and all of my questions and concerns over the time period. He is very easy to get in contact with, as he always made himself available to meet or talk with me when I needed as well as always answering or returning my messages right away. John also helped me in understanding my different options and the difference possible outcomes. John’s effort and dedication to my case were very appreciated and I highly recommend his services.

Son's Speeding ticket
John handled all facets of the legal process. My son never even had to appear in court. All completed for a fee less than the fine would have been.

Mr. John Healy is an excellent lawyer and I highly recommend him
Mr. John Healy handled a case for my real estate property company. A summons to appear in court for violations was sent by the city where the property in question is situated. Mr. Healy worked closely with the cities legal counsel to help my company take the appropriate action and steps necessary to resolve the matter. Mr. Healy was very patient and diligent in his handling of the case. With my own uncertainty of how to approach the situation, it was extremely reassuring having Mr. Healy handle this case. I highly recommend Mr. John Healy for those in need of a reliable lawyer.

Honest and Helpful
I found John on google and called him regarding a case. He looked into it to make sure he could help me and gave me a fair price. When the case ended up being dismissed itself, he refunded me the full amount that I had paid him even though he did make several phone calls for me. He is honest, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I would strongly refer him to anyone.

Amazing job
I haven't come into contact with many lawyers in my life but John Healy did an amazing job. His calm character allowed me to remain calm throughout my court case and I forever felt secure with him representing me. He went above and beyond to help me and give me advice on every obstacle that came my way. He was able to do things that not even he was sure we could get. I am so pleased with his service.

Fantastic Attorney
When I got myself in a tough bind I was referred to Mr. Healy by a co-worker, and could not be happier. From the start Mr. Healy was honest, upfront, and genuinely caring of my situation. I would highly recommend him 10/10 times

Best attorney & NY's bravest
Unfortunately I am able to say I have used my fair share of attorneys 8-10 years ago and was never truly satisfied with the experiences I had. Those attorneys would offer false hopes, and do the bare minimum by not caring about my particular case and act as if I was just another paycheck. Since Mr. Healy operates his own practice, you know he is going to be there every time and your case will not get delayed because the original attorney wasn't available. Mr. Healy was recommended to me by a very good friend and after the initial phone call, I knew Mr. Healy was exactly what I was looking for. Mr. Healy told me how it was and even though I knew my case was clear and would get dismissed, he did not guarantee or promise it. At my arraignment, Mr. Healy arrived promptly at the agreed time and was able to work some magic to allow for a short date following due to my particular situation. The following dates Mr. Healy listened to all of my concerns, and understood the course of action behind the misdemeanor that we needed to take to get it dismissed. After two extremely short dates and going back and forth with the district attorney, Mr. Healy was able to get my case completely dismissed because i was wrongfully charged. The time frame of my case from arraignment to dismissal was five days. Mr. Healy showed compassion, dedication to my case and professionalism at all times. Words can truly not explain how ecstatic I was with his service.

With Ease...
Mr. Healy made our busy life at our moving company much easier when he dealt with 15 tickets that we received all in one setting buy one of our loyal, Long Island police officers. He was quick, professional, and just all around pretty cool. Highly recommend if you're a corporation dealing with truck/traffic tickets.

Defended my son
Outstanding!! Look no further, if you need an attorney! Attorney Healy is somebody you would always want on your side, having your back. He is very helpful, and gave great advice to my son. He seemed to me to be well thought of by the Court and the Assistant District Attorney's, and the case results proved this.
