Mr. Breslin is friendly, professional, and was the essence of a zealous advocate in my DWI charge/proceeding. His rate was very reasonable and he was VERY accessible (all of my calls were picked up and all emails that I sent him were answered within the hour).
Before retaining Mr. Breslin I consulted with 6 of the most reputable local DWI attorney's (all of whom gave me a similar assessment of my initial case and chances in court to the assessment that Mr. Breslin gave me). My chances at any sort of reduction of my DWI charge we're slim to none based on the facts of my case. I decided to retain Mr. Breslin because despite giving me the same bleak chances that the other 5 attorney's gave me, Mr. Breslin seemed like the only one who wasn't going to "phone it in", and actually submit vigorous arguments on my behalf, no matter how weak. In other words the choice to retain Mr. Breslin was a personal one, as all attorney's were qualified from a legal perspective.
As you can probably tell by the glowing lead-up in this review, Mr. Breslin negotiated a plea deal on my behalf that, based on, all research I can find, isnt available to anyone else in my situation in the state of New York. This result was achieved all the while keeping me informed and in the loop of all processes and developments along the way. I'm aware that these results aren't typical, and my case does not necessarily mean a similar outcome for future clients, but I was very happy with the services rendered and would retain him again for any criminal matters going forward (hopefully that won't be necessary :) )

At first I was scared out of my mind with worry. I had to change from my original lawyer due to the nature of my case. Sam Breslin came highly recommended. Although I was nervous and had doubts, Sam immediately put me at ease with a thorough description of what his office is capable of accomplishing. He was right on the money. He finished what he promised. He didn't lead me down a path without explaining the dangers. He told me the truth as I needed to hear it; both good and bad. He told me his office was taking care of me, he told me to trust them, and although I was nervous, I did. Here's some advice: I called his office repeatedly, even though Sam tried to get me to stop, for the first month and a half after retaining his services...that only added to the bill. He is not a priest. Leave your lawyer to do his job and go find a priest or a good friend to talk to, its better that way. Even though Sam always came to the phone and never ignored me I wasn't letting him work when he had to stop and talk to me. In the end it worked out the way I needed it to for me, my family, and everyone else involved. I highly recommend retaining Sam Breslin but hope to the Lord that I never have to again. The next time I see him I hope to be sharing a steak dinner with him.
