If you're looking for an attorney, Ed Palermo is the ONLY call you should make. Several years ago, I was arrested for DWI with Refusal of a Breathalyzer. I was 23 at the time, terrified, and completely unsure of what to do. I looked up lawyers online, came across Ed's profile, gave him a call, and got to go in and meet him the same day. I was expecting for him to just give me a price, but instead, he took the time to listen to me, understand how I felt, and ultimately what I was looking to achieve. He explained my options, walked me through each step of the process, and let me know he would work tirelessly to help me. He never fell short of his promises.
Everyone was telling me how dire my situation was, and how unlikely it was I'd have a positive outcome, but Ed made the impossible happen. Instead of having a criminal record, I was charged with a violation. He never stopped working with me.. tirelessly answering my frantic texts, phone calls, and relentless bantering. He is a very patient and compassionate person. I would highly recommend him.

Ed is a great lawyer. He did everything he said he would. Communication was excellent. He got my dwi charge dropped down which prevented me from having a criminal record. I highly recommend him.

Edward Palermo is the most encouraging supportive kind lawyer. I was treated wrongly at the Lower Court for a traffic ticket. I appealed my case on my own after I was told by many Appeals lawyers that an Appeal would be at least $5,000 and maybe more. My traffic ticket fee was only $280 but to me it came down to right and wrong. I was treated so wrongly that I had to fight back. I had to hire a new civil Lawyer for my Supreme Ct Case so I couldn't afford to pay an Appeals Lawyer $5,000 or more. I took all the fear and disappointment regarding how I was treated at the Lower Court and turned that into my motivation to work harder than I have ever worked in my life, except for in my Supreme Court Case, and fight for Justice. I took it step by step and I won. The day I had to "Argue" my appeal was emotionally tough, and I almost just left out of fear of seeing the people from the Lower Court. But I took a deep breath and thought about Edward Palermo's words to me when he told me not to worry and that I will do great. Honestly his kind supportive words are what made me not leave. I told myself I will do my best. Knowing I had Ed's support made all the difference. I "Argued" my appeal with no problem. The Judges were so sweet and fair. I won my Appeal and I owe it all to Edward Palermo because if not for his kind words, I most likely would have just left out of my own fear. Thank you forever Ed. You are amazing and you are so kind.

I highly endorse Ed Palermo. I have known Ed for over 15 years as a fellow criminal defense attorney on Long Island. He is a hard working attorney who has earned a very fine reputation as a fierce advocate for his clients. I admire him for his legal knowledge and ability.

Ed is one of the finest criminal attorneys in Suffolk County. I frequently refer clients to him. He has always achieved excellent results and my clients have been very happy with him. He is capable of handling the most complex State and Federal criminal cases.
