Great Attorney - excellent support staff to!
Mr. Kassman is a great attorney backed by an incredible staff who work really hard. We had a horrible tenant that had to be evicted in Suffolk County and Mr. Kassman laid out a plan and executed on it flawlessly. He took dozens of phone calls, and so did his staff from us and reassured us throughout the entire process. We are really grateful. Looking forward to using him for other needs that we have because he’s full service. We got the eviction and we got our lives back and we owe it all to Mr. Kassman and has a great team. Shout out Mara - she is incredible. Highly recommend using them don’t even hesitate. This is a great choice for an attorney who is very well seasoned on long island law, courts, judges and the complex process of ny law.

Family Court Dispute
I hired Shawn to represent me in a Suffolk County Family Court matter. He has communicated with all other counsel and the referee effectively and with composure throughout my case thus far. I knew that hiring him was the right choice once I read the petition he put together. It was straight forward but also, showed the court some important secondary details.

Good Lawyer
I have hired Shawn on and off for years. I had tickets and he assisted me with the tickets and was able to get them reduced. If it was for him I would have a horrible driving record. But the outcome I was very satisfied with. He works hard to get the best results for his clients. You can’t please everyone 100 percent, but you do the best that you can and I appreciate your services whether I win or loose. Thank you in advance.

Owner KOL Global Logistics
Shawn did an incredible job, taking care of this mess. It was a bad situation for our driver, gone worse, when the police just hit him with several violations, not knowing what had just occurred. KOL appreciates your effort in getting this matter resolved. Extremely prompt and professional.

Shawn Kassman Excellent Attorney
I engaged Shawn to assist me with a legal matter in Ocean Beach, Fire Island. Shawn was strategic in his lawyering. Ultimately, we received a fair outcome that I was very pleased with. During my trial, I realized how well respected Shawn is in his field but this came as no surprise. I will certainly use him again for any relevant legal needs. Highly Recommended.

Helpful
Mr. Kassman made sure that communication was key I'm our consultation. When I called his assistant made sure I was able to get into the firm to speak with him as quick as possible. He broke down the situation I was going through, and the options I could take. He then advised me of the path I would take in the future if further litigation were to occur. Very pleased with this experience.

Highly respected
Ran into some trouble and was charged with two misdemeanors. The people’s offer was 90 days jail time. After the initial court date and consultation with Mr. Kassman and after months of me compiling crucial paperwork the charges were reduced to violations with the sentence being 49 hours of community service and several hundred dollar fines. A little costly in the end obviously but well worth it in the end when you have an amazing attorney on your side to represent you. Not to mention the fact that every court appearance I was the first one addressed by the judge and first one out because of Mr. Kassman.

Fast and Effective
I am very satisfied with the work Shawn Kassman did regarding my traffic violation and would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking representation. He was able to reduce the charges down when the chance seemed slim and resolve the issue in such a quick turnaround time. Hiring him as my attorney was the best decision.

Best Attorney in Long Island
I was wrongly charged in the case and after discussing my case with many attorneys I selected Mr Shawn to represent me in the court. Mr Shawn did everything legally possible to assist and argue for me. He has a well known attorney in the court and people give a lot of regards to him. He represented me in my case and the judge dismissed the case on the first date itself. Please look no further and retain him for your services as he is the best.

Shawn Kassman on traffic violations
Shawn was recommended to me by a friend and he has represented me twice on traffic related violations and each time has surpassed my expectations. Each time he was able to reduce charges to fair settlements. He also got it done without my presence so I didn’t need to miss work. He is worth every penny.

Excellent Attorney
I had a case in May, 2015 with Attorney Kassman. I handed him three traffic violation tickets to him. Although I lost two tickets and it was not a problem for him. He took care of all of them before July, 2015. In February,2016, I got a letter that said there would be a suspension of my license in March, 2016. I thought the Attorney didn't handle them well. After I did some research, I realized it was my mistake that I didn't explain well to Mr. Kassman my situation resulted the consequence. However, my attorney did not charge me more to take care of this and he put a lot of efforts and time to dismissed my ticket. He is a pretty reasonable and patient attorney. I recommend him.
