I reached out to Anelli & Xavier on recommendation of my friend. I was given a great deal!
Additionally they handled a Cell Phone ticket at no additional cost.
Although their fee usually is higher for traffic violations it was explained to me that the reason being is because their focus is handling clients charged with a DWI.
It is worth the investment as their firm proves the quality of their DWI practice is premium and they deliver their service with professionalism.
Additionally, they were able to clear up prior suspensions for a BARGAIN as they would normally charge higher fees than other attorneys & courts combined. The whole situation honestly was a God send. I don't know where I would have turned without them. They reduced my original fee as a courtesy, they handled an additional traffic ticket as a courtesy, they offered a payment plan for legal fees as a courtesy, and they pulled my drivers abstract as a courtesy (saved me the trip to the DMV). So, they give extreme detail, time and attention to not only me but each person that comes to them. They really do work hard for all of their clients!

I met Martin P. Bonventre at colonie court for a 65 in a 55 speeding ticket. Martin did just as he said and got it reduced to parking on pavement. Small fine and I was out of there.
Thanks AnelliXavier for the help.
If you need representation these are the people to call.
Thank again Martin

I found everyone at Anelli Xavier to be very professional from the first person I talked to when I called to the senior attorney that took my case to trial. I was found not guilty of felony DWI after trial. I highly recommend the Anelli Xavier team to anyone charged with DWI.

I really enjoyed working with Anelli Xavier. I wasn't hounded all the time, when I was a day late on a payment and they were flexible with a payment plan. It's hard being able to afford a great service up front but I was taken care of very well. Each step up to the court case was explained to me in detail, to where I was able to understand. If it wasn't for Jonathan Ward, attorney, I probably would have been given a higher charge that wasn't deserved. I am thankful for all the help and the outcome of the case and would recommend to give them a call.

Constantine Destefano is an outstanding attorney representing an outstanding law firm. I would recommend Mr. Destefano or any of the other partners associated with this group. Anelli Xavier offered me piece of mind, a fair payment arrangement and most of all justice. I've said it before, I may have not been right, however they made sure that I wasn't taken advantage of or improperly charged. They know their stuff and it is quite reassuring to know that there is someone out there that will have your back when your livelihood is at stake. They will make sure your case is handled properly, you will never be left unanswered if you have a question and most importantly they know their laws, regulations and protocols of this fine state of New York. A million times thank you!

Any questions that I had were answered very promptly, Joanne was very helpful with any questions that I had prior to my court appearances and Derek did an excellent job preparing me the morning of court so I knew what to expect. I was pleased with the knowledge that my legal team had. They had me do things prior to the judge asking me to do them, making me feel like the judge appreciated me being proactive. Whether the question I had seemed insignificant or very important, I was answered fully and promptly. I would highly recommend this law firm to anybody I know may be in this situation in the future. I appreciated the fact that I was able to live my normal, everyday life while this process was going on. When my legal team needed anything from me they asked and I was able to complete whatever task and still live my life. There was little stress involved with this process and I felt the legal team treated me with the upmost respect. Thank you so much for everything. Great job!

Back in 2002, i was experiencing some very hard times in my life. I had an accident which put me out of work for a few months. Unable to work, and medical bills just piling on, i had to resort to filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Probably a year later (2003), after i thought things were going good, and i was back on track financially, i ended up being pulled over and getting a DUI. Both instances, the Bankruptcy and the DUI, Thomas Anelli represented me. Not only did he have the utmost professionalism, but his genuine care and concern for the situations, was something i will never forget. He would always update me on what was going on, so i didn't feel nervous throughout the whole process. He helped me get through everything, still being able to hold my head up with dignity. I sincerely want to thank him again for all that he did for me.
If anyone is in need of a lawyer for what ever reasons, i personally recommend Thomas Anelli. Again, he is a true professional, that cares.

I used this firm for a dwai ,they were very responsive at first,to get me to sign an agreement,then once signed,I would call,and not have my calls returned for days at a time.After my case was settled,I hadn't and STILL have not heard anything from them,except for if I am late for a payment.My case was settled in August,and the ONLY paperwork that I got were 3 "post-it" notes that were handed to me in a rush to leave the courtroom,I would HIGHLY NOT recommend these people,as it seems all they want is to be paid excessive amounts for minimal effort,and absolutely no follow through at all!

I was facing a felony conviction when I hired Anelli Xavier. When Anelli Xavier took my case there were several things my attorney said but one that stayed in my mind was that he couldn’t promise the outcome but that he would represent me with all of his skills and experiences in DWI cases. I appreciated this statements as it dint give me any false hope. What I learned over time was how personal Anelli Xavier took this case. This personal characteristic was not found in my contract but is one important element that made me feel so special that he was not only a lawyer representing a customer but someone who cared.
The other attorney that appeared with me in court was a person of great knowledge of the courtroom practice. He was also an attorney that showed me a lot of personal attention because I was afraid of jail time. The 1st charge was a felony for the DWI; my attorney had the charge reduced to a misdemeanor. He was also continuing to work on reducing the misdemeanor to a violation. When a man is facing jail time and you have an attorney like I had, and you look at his body language, you listen how he articulates and I knew I was in good hands. I last day I was in court I had the misdemeanor (which was already reduced down from a Felony), reduced to a violation! You have to watch his magical approach with each member of the court. From the judge, to the DA, to the court clerk, he's able to have them work with him to get through the red tape. In conclusion I would like to thank my legal team at Anelli Xavier for their services and support. I am positive that I will not need their services again but without a doubt will give your firm high praise to any friend, family member who needs such representation.

Tom Anelli is outstanding. I couldn’t have asked for a better DWI Attorney. His vast knowledge of DWI defense was apparent and he made everything very simple to understand. While in Court, It was obvious to me that other attorneys, the prosecutor and the Judge all held Tom in very high regard.
I would highly recommend him and his practice to anyone, anywhere in New York State in need of a DWI attorney. Because in my opinion he is the finest!
