I was involved in a fatal car accident, I was indicted with vehicular homicide, injuries, etc, after he review the case he knew that the case was going to be dropped because it was only a mere accident, not the way that it was portrayed by the District Attorney, after paperwork to be presented to the court and lots of patience, the case against me was totally dismissed

Mr. Brendan Ahern is one of the best attorneys I ever met in my life. I, as a lawyer, know specifically what it takes and what the profession requires to be successful and respected, and this person has everything a client looks for. This guy knows what it takes to bring an excellent service and to be consider one of the best attorneys in New York. His work ethic and his way of dealing with legal matters makes me more than ready to write this review.
First of all I met him by recommendation from a good friend that told me this guy knows what it takes to deal with my legal situation. As soon as I met Mr. Ahern in his office in Long Island and he started to introduce himself and explain deeply my legal situation and what it takes to attack the charges against me by preparing a detailed legal action plan, I knew I was in good hands. From that moment I decided to request Mr. Ahern's services and everything went as I expected.
From the first day I was in constant communication with Mr. Ahern. From the first moment this guy attended me personally and was up to explain everything with great detail, always writing me by e-mail or personally calling me and being always available to clear my doubts and answering my questions. He prepared a legal course of action that was very professional and kept me posted everytime he made an advance or the district attorney established a matter of law. His strategy was specific and effective at every moment and his advise was helpful all the time. He detailed everything and kept me under his plan everyday. He was always looking forward in case something happened and he always kept a second plan in case the main plan didn't work. His professional attitude and his deep knowledge of the New York State law made it easy for me to understand the process and to feel confident, I was in the best hands I could be.
When I thought the worst was going to happen, going to trial, Mr. Ahern gave me the great notice that he made his deal and that we were up to have a deal with the district attorney. This movement made by Mr. Ahern was of great benefit for me and for my future, giving me a great opportunity to continue with my personal life and business-legal carrier without mayor consequences. He was of great help for me, my family and my loved ones. Keeping me out of trouble and having another opportunity to continue with my future plans, and at the same time saving a huge amount of money if I decided to trial my case. I owe this person a lot and if wasn't for him my life would be in danger at this moment. I recommend Mr. Ahern and every member of his team as a defense attorney and a trusted lawyer that knows what he has in his hands. This guy is one of the best I've ever see in my entire life and anyone who needs legal advise and representation can be sure that he will be in the best hands he could be. I thank Mr. Ahern to give me from his valuable time, treat me with professionalism and respect, and keeping me updated in every aspect this case demanded. Professionalism, great work ethic, amazing respect and knowledge of the law is what describes the job of this guy. I'm not waiting for more trouble to come in the future, but if something happens to me in the future Mr. Ahern will be my first and only option to deal with any legal matter I need. You are not going to find something like this in every corner of the State of New York, just a few people can offer what it takes to keep you out of trouble. And Mr. Ahern is one of the few that can bring you that confidence you need to take care of any legal situation that can change your life, your career, your family circle and your future. I thank you for everything you did and will be always thankful for you invaluable help.

I live in NH, was traveling through NY on 6/28/14, totaled my car, and was arrested and charged with DUI/DWI. I became aware of and contacted Mr. Steven Epstein to handle my case. Mr. Ahern was ultimately assigned to my case and continued through its disposition on 2/18/15. I would whole heartily recommend Mr Ahern to anyone within the NY metro area. Mr. Ahern recently joined the firm of Barket, Marion, Epstein & Kearon, after serving several years in the NY DA's office. He has a wealth of knowledge of both sides. He knows first hand for example, what the DA can do, won't do, and due to legal constraints, can't possibly do in negotiating the best outcome for his client. (This information is crucial to you as a potential client.) I found Mr. Ahern to be knowledgable, and trustworthy. For example, I have been attending AA recovery meetings, he suggested I keep a record of those to show to the court my seriousness about recovery. He suggested that before the court orders it, I should have a LADAC evaluation, and attend a Phoenix House program, both of which I did. The best outcome for me was to have the case dismissed on some technicality, (areas that Mr. Ahern examined), however, I have to believe that following his advice, and reporting those successes helped in reaching an agreement to a less serious offense than charged. As this was my first, (and hopefully only), experience with the legal system I have nothing else to compare him to. Let's be real for a moment, Lawyering in our country is a lucrative business. The fees charged are astronomical. For someone making $15-20.00/hr. the cost of a defense can seem overwhelming. As it was to me. In order to provide a defense, Mr Ahern needed information from the DA's office. That information was painfully slow in revealing itself to our side. I unfortunately took some of that frustration out on Mr Arhen, but being the professional that he is, didn't take it personally. Throughout this process he has maintained a courteous, positive attitude. Again, I found Mr. Ahern to be a bright young attorney, who keeps his clients interests in the forefront.

Brendan did a great job obtaining the best possible outcome for a recent DWI related case I was faced with. He reviewed our options during the initial consultation and advised me on pro-active measures I could take throughout the process, such as OASAS, character references and community service, to strengthen my case and ensure that I got through the ordeal without a criminal record or probation.
