Saved My License!!
A couple of months ago, I received a speeding ticket in Upstate NY for doing 96 in 55 which could've led to a possible license suspension. Right away, I hired Zachary to take my case and all I could do was hope for the best outcome. Zachary made sure to stay in to contact with me updating me whenever something new happened regarding the case. I'm pleased to say that he did way better than I expected and worked out a deal to a no-points parking ticket with a reasonable fine. I was beyond grateful and I would highly recommend him!!

Removed Speeding Ticket!
I reached out to Zach for help with a speeding ticket and was glad I did. Zach was very communicative and not pushy. His fees were reasonable and he got the speeding ticket reduced to a violation which resulted in no points. Very happy with the outcome and would recommend if something happens in upstate NY.

Great Lawyer
Zach has helped me significantly throughout my cases. Everything from tickets to general defense, he excels at what he does and has provided the best defense that I could ask for. A couple years ago I managed to get charged with 2 DUI's. Despite catching the charges pretty much back to back, he got me to walk on both of them. In addition to this, Zach was also very helpful in ensuring that I got the minimum fine for all of my tickets. 10/10 Would Recommend!

Cleared My Charge! Awesome Attorney!
I was charged with an offense and was prepared to plead guilty at my hearing when a friend suggested that I should consult an attorney before going to court. I was referred to Zach and after he reviewed my case and discussed my options with me, I decided to hire him to represent me. It was clear that Zach was well versed in criminal law as he understood nuances about that law, how it is applied and the different defenses I could use for my charge. Zach was also very friendly and explained everything to me in terms I could understand. In the end, Zach was actually able to get my charge dismissed! This was amazing - even better than I had hoped for! I couldn't believe that I had been prepared to plead guilty and yet Zach was able to get the charge completely dismissed. I would absolutely recommend hiring Zach if you find yourself in need of an attorney.

Family custody trial
I had a family court case that wasn’t going anywhere for years, 4-5 years. Mr. Halperin got the case prior to trial dates and during the trial, did an exceptional job with the case. Due to his excellent work I was able to get my children back and start a normal life again. I highly recommend him as a lawyer specially for trials.
