Great experience
Hired Mr. Fakhoury to handle a speeding ticket. His office was great in explaining the process and I had a very positive outcome that was just as his office said it would be. I hope everyone has the same experience and I would suggest his services without hesitation.

A man and consultant of honor
Attorney Fakhoury was able to help our family through a very difficult time. He provided exceptional advice and went "above and beyond" working on our side to solve problems caused by others. He fought an "uphill battle" for me and my family; it was wonderful to have him on our side.

Best lawyer in Dutchess County!
Mr. Fakhoury helped me when I felt the world around me was falling apart. I almost lost my home. Mr. Fakhoury helped me understand step by step what my options in bankruptcy are. I now filed a bankruptcy with his firm and was able to save my home. I highly recommend him with any legal issues.

Excellent attorney.
Mr. Fakhoury has been my families attorney for a number of years, and has handled various legal matters for us. He is knowledgeable and responsive. He is quick to answer and questions and address concerns. His office staff are the best, and make sure that all aspects of your case are covered. Phone messages are returned promptly. I would recommend Mr. Fakhoury highly.

Need an Excellent and Compassionate Attorney , here he is !
Mr. Fakhoury is an excellent and trustworthy Attorney ! When I first sought an attorney I had a few prerequisites that would help me choose the correct person , Mr. Fakhoury was my third visit. Upon entering his office his secretary was very pleasant and welcoming , often this is not the case . When I sat for my FREE consultation I knew I had found the right attorney he shook my hand , gave good eye contact and explained at length my options. He also gave me paperwork explaining those options and asked that I call if I had any questions . I did call and he actually called back , the same day!!! I will always keep Mr. Fakhoury as my attorney and I have recommend him to my friends and they too hold him in very high regard . If you need an attorney that listens , will explain , return your calls and will follow through on your case , mine was financial, he is the person to call !

He is an Excellent lawyer and human being. He has been with me going over procedures step by step for over three years, and has also helped me with my recent bankruptcy.

Excellent attorney
He was honestly concerned about my well-being. The best Criminal Defense attorney in the county if not the state. Not only did he just care but made sure that you get the best possible deal.

Tells it like it is no sugar coating. Secretary Sharon is also excellent. My lawyer for 12 years.

Competent Lawyer
Mr. Fakhoury took away all my worries when I needed to file for bankruptcy. I went to several lawyers around the county and none of them compared to how Mr. Fakhoury explained and went about working on my case. He made me completely understand what my bankruptcy was about and best of all he saved my home!!!!
