Very Helpful
Mr Ricca was very helpful with my court visit to 16 cooper street, I was in and out in 30 minutes with just fines as promised with no additional points. Would recommend to friends and family.

Reduced my speeding ticket to a parking ticket.
Michael handled my speeding ticket like a professional. He was excellent on the phone. He explained the entire process to me very thoroughly. He reduced my 79 in a 55 speeding ticket to a parking ticket.

Highly Recommended Criminal Defense Attorney
Mr. Ricca was able to swiftly dismiss criminal charges that were lodged against me without me ever appearing in court. He was knowledgeable, professional, and a fraction of the price of what other lawyers wanted to charge me.
