Mark is amazing
Mark is amazing. I wish I would have gone with his firm when I got into an accident earlier this year. However, I choose him to fight a couple of tickets. He’s very knowledgeable his staff is organized and attentive to your needs. Great experience and 100% recommend others to use his services. I don’t usually review many experiences but he is without a doubt a true professional in his field and I’m grateful I was referred to him and do not regret it at all. He is a true class act and recommend others to go with him to represent you in any situation you find yourself in.

Excellent Attorney
I received a couple tickets while driving in Nassau and I wanted to get that fixed. Mark and his team were incredibly friendly, responsive and resolved any issues that arose in a timely fashion... They were all professional, pleasant and confident in my case. Mark was a pleasure and with the help of this office, I was able to limit the amount of points I would've gotten had I not met these amazing folks! I couldn't believe how easy and affordable Montanaro Law made the process. Again, I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Successful!
Efficient, thorough and available. Got a speeding ticket, which would have been points on my license , reduced to littering. I also didn’t have to take time off of work to go to court. He handled the whole thing! Unbelievable! It would’ve been a big increase in my insurance. so this is fabulous. His office was always accessible and his staff was supportive and professional. Thank you so much. Highly recommend for traffic violations.

Very satisfied with Mark's service
Mark truly cares about his client and the result he brings proves his ability as a lawyer. The result was better than expected. His assistant, Madelyne, is the one who makes the clients feel comfortable with their cases.

Great work
I worked with Mark and team to assist in handling a ridiculous amount of summons we received in one shot. He was able to reduce a 9 point summons to 2 points. He really did a great job. Highly recommended

Mark is a excellent with taking care of traffic violations/offences
I had 2 tickets: i. for an improper U turn and ii. for not changing my address after having moved. Mark was able to convert these to parking violations. He had told me from the beginning what the likely outcome would be and that is what I got. You may not always get the desired outcome, perhaps due to your driving history, previous accumulated points and other subjective biases that could transpire with the prosecutor. Regardless, it is still better to fight any ticket you get in New York, even if it's just 1 point. An Improper U turn is worse than a parking violation in the eyes of auto insurance firms that pull up your records. Also, any point not assessed on your driving records, moves you further away from getting your license suspended at 11 points or being made to do a Driver responsibility assessment (which by the way is another $300 plus administrative surcharges) at 6 points. It's always a win win to use a Lawyer that is affordable (don't worry about saving that Attorneys fee! In the long term, you are better off using a Lawyer). I highly recommend Mark Montanaro. Use him. He communicates well, does not ignore your phone calls or get irritated and is good with this. Sorry, I cannot disclose my personal details. :)

Traffic Ticket/Summons
Mark did a phenomenal job with my case of two traffic Summons. He fought on my behalf and won my case successfully. Mark was able to stop the suspension of my license and reduced my fine/fees significantly. Thanks Mark, you have done a superb job.

Speeding Ticket
Mark, Did an excellent job handling my case. I received a serious speeding ticket in the town of Southhampton going 40+ over which carried huge fines, suspension of my license, and 11 Points on my driving record. I was extremely stressed. However, Mark reassured me he will get the job done and told me all of the possible outcomes. Met with him at his office, and from there on the weight was lifted from my shoulders. Mark managed to plea my speeding ticket down to a simple parking violation which carried a minimal fine. I didn't have to make any appearances or drive an hour out of my way to the Southhampton Town Court.

Mark Montanaro Super lawyer
I hired Mark this past April to handle a traffic violation, in which I felt were due to an overzealousness very young and inexperienced issuing officer deputy sheriff, interestingly enough not a state Trooper, county police officer, or highway patrolman, but a sheriff's deputy who normally serves subpoenas. When I called, Mark himself answered the phone and discussed my case, before even mentioning a fee, and was honest and upfront. Mark was one of those super lawyers commuting into the city and wanted a change to be near his home and started his own firm. We on Long Island are lucky Mark hung up his own shingle and started practicing locally. The best part of Mark's firm, is he handles all types of cases, not just traffic. We plan on consulting/hiring Mark for a civil matter. If your involved in anything, your first call should be for medical/police/emergency services but your second should be to Montanaro Law.

Great guy, great result
I don't know how he did it, but Mark succeeded in having my six-point speeding violation reduced to a zero-point Jay Walking infraction. He handled everything for me and eliminated a very stressful problem I was facing.

Top-Notch Lawyer!
I recently hired Mr. Montanaro to handle the closing of my co-op and I'm sure glad I did! Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and professional, but he really went above and beyond in helping me through each step of the process. He took the time to explain everything to me and was able to answer whatever questions I had in great detail. It became evident early on that he truly was looking out for my best interests at all times. A huge plus for me was his communication skills - I was able to get a hold of him whenever I needed to, and in the rare case when he was not available, he was very diligent in returning my calls. I have dealt with lawyers in the past and, while getting in touch with them is usually a challenge, that was never he case with Mr. Montanaro. If this is your first time hiring a lawyer, trust me when I tell you that being able to reach them is the most important factor to consider. It is often the difference between a highly stressful relationship or a very seamless one. When it came to the actual handling of the close, Mr. Montanaro cemented his place as the best lawyer that I have ever hired. He handled every step of the process quickly and efficiently (which meant less work and stress for me)! He came to the closing fully prepared, having already competed the majority of the paperwork. That made for a very quick and easy close, not a long drawn-out process as closings tend to be. Even the buyers were impressed with his efficiency! Words cannot express how satisfied I was with the level of service that I received in Mr. Montanro. I will certainly be using him again in the future and HIGHLY recommend that others do as well - they will not be disappointed!
