Honest counsel and effective representation are the cornerstones of any legal practice.  Over the years I have learned that, above all else, clients are seeking an honest lawyer who can provide them with skilled, effective representation.  I am not afraid to fight agressively for my clients, but I am also practical in advising them when it's in their best interest to negotiate.
 
Too many attorneys nowadays offer lofty promises but little results. That is not my philosophy. My mission is to handle all of my clients’ matters in a professional and competent manner. Many of my clients are referred to my office by satisfied former clients as well as other attorneys.

Amazing
Lorenzo helped me with an appeal case that was effecting my hiring process for a career. He helped me and fought with my case for 2 years. The back and forth to court and calls and finally 2 years later I no longer have to worry about this case. I couldn’t be more grateful to have such a reliable lawyer by my side! I look forward to working with him again if ever needed!

Highly recommended
Lorenzo has been handling of all my evictions for 6 years now. He makes the whole process less of a headache. His quick response time makes it clear that I am a priority. He is always up to date with the constant changes to tenant/landlord laws He is resourceful and effective in providing a very grounded, reliable and effective legal counsel.

Awesome Attorney
Lorenzo helped me with a moving violation ticket, big time! He took care of everything, he got the job done, saved me a bunch of points and money, and did so economically. He’s the best.

Very reasonable and knowledgable
I emailed Lorenzo about coming with me to a court date to resolve some traffic tickets in Avon. He promptly emailed me back with plenty of information on my tickets and how to proceed if I wanted to hire him. Some other events took place that meant I didn't need to appear in court, and he didn't charge me for his email consultation. Very nice of him, and I will certainly refer him to friends and colleagues in need of an attorney.

Speeding Ticket
Super satisfied with Lorenzo Napolitano services. I hired him to help my daughter with a speeding ticket she got in April 2019 come back from Montreal. We live in NJ so I was not going to travel back to court to fight this. Not only did he save her from points on her license but also made it super easy to do all of this via email. Thank you very much for your help!!

Best of the best
Lorenzo was extremely kind and professional, and willing to answer any and all questions I had. He gave me peace of mind and assured me everything will be alright, and it absolutely was. Even if he didn’t get my 4-point speeding ticket reduced to a 0-point one, which he successfully did, I still would have given him the same rating. If you’re like me and read the really bad reviews, which are more times than not due to the fault of the reviewer, and psyche yourself out, don’t worry. Lorenzo’s positive reviews are truthful, and he’s the best of the best. I promise you this. Thanks again!

Traffic ticket
Mr. Napolitano has reduced a six point speeding violation and an expired inspection in western New York down to two ZERO POINT parking tickets! We are very pleased. He was quick and kept us up-to-date on everything that was happening. Money well spent. Much appreciation, Mr. Napolitano! Thank you.

Thank You!!
I had recieved a cell phone ticket in upstate NY recently and Lorenzo got it reduced from a 5 point cell phone ticket to a 2 point reduction, I also have a rather colorful driving history and didnt think I could get it reduced on my own; however Lorenzo got it reduced for me regardless of how many points and tickets I have on my record and faced license suspension. I am grateful he could help me out.

Speeding Ticket
Mr Napolitano represented my daughter on a her first (and hopefully only) speeding ticket in Junius, NY. He took the time to explain the process, expectations, timeline and fees. He responded quickly to the initial inquiry and to all follow up questions, keeping us informed of the process, and was able to negotiate a great settlement on the issue. We definitely recommend his services.

Speeding ticket
I would highly recommend him to my friends and family. I am a relatively new driver and I didn't even know speeding going down a hill. I got a ticket. I found him on google. Through the process I felt it was easy to contact him and I felt he was attentive to questions and giving updates when possible. He got me out of it with only a small fine and taking the accident prevention course. However, it is not on my record and will not up my insurance rates. I am forever grateful. I am definitely glad I decided to ask him to take my case. If I ever found myself in this situation again I would request his services again. Hopefully not but I know who to call.

Speeding Ticket
I got a speeding ticket, on Friday the 13th of course, and it was my first ticket ever so I was clueless on what to do. The court date was scheduled on my father's birthday and when I was going to be back home with family celebrating. I also could not convince the court to move the court date. Lorenzo and his staff were extremely helpful and answered all of the questions I had. After receiving the ticket and reaching my destination I called his office, but they were already closed so I went ahead and emailed him. I did not hear back from anyone until calling again the following week, which is when he made sure I was taken care of. I was able to take an online diversion traffic program course and remove all points and pay a small fine. Would recommend Lorenzo to family and friends.

Excellent, Stress-Free Representation
I was new to the area and got a speeding ticket in circumstances where the limit wasn't clear. Attorney Napolitano and his staff were understanding and easy to work with, and they were able to get the charges reduced and keep me from getting any points on my license. They handled everything, and I didn't even have the stress of going to court. I couldn't be more pleased and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

6point speeding violation
I had a 6point speeding violation and Lorenzo was able to get it down to a 0point parking violation. That was a wonderful job they did for me (I didnt even have to go to court, they handled everything all the way through) and did save a lot of money. I would definitely recommend considering them if you are looking to get rid of your violations.

Traffic ticket
Lorenzo and his team did a tremendous job with my daughter’s speeding ticket by getting the most positive results. Every time I called them to check the follow up they assured me it was being worked on and I didn’t have to do anything, they took care of everything from beginning to end. The staff is very pleasant to talk to and explained everything as I was new to hiring a lawyer for this.

Ticket Dismissed, Professional Attorney and Staff
Lorenzo and Andrew are extremely responsive over the phone or via email. They handled my traffic ticket entirely, notifying me today that it was dismissed. Highly recommend for their talent, communication, and value.

Excellent Attorney
This was my first time hiring a traffic attorney, so I was unsure at first of where to look, but after reading reviews on here I thought to give Lorenzo a call to see if he could help with my speeding ticket in Binghamton, NY. As an out of state driver, there was no way I could make the court date, so I chose him to represent me and he did a fantastic job. For my first speeding ticket he was able to get it reduced from a hefty 8-point violation to only a 4. This not only helped my driving record but also saved me massive amounts of money due to the additional New York Driver Assessment Fee pinned on to any violation over a 4. Through the whole process Lorenzo was always easy to reach, by phone and email, very knowledgeable, and open to answering all of my questions; I would 100% recommend him to anyone.

Napolitano knows the system
Mr. Napolitano represented me for a speeding ticket in the city of Rochester. I was impressed with his attentiveness and attention to detail. While I assume most attorneys know the law (which he clearly does) I was most impressed by the fact that Lorenzo knows the system. He knows the judges, the court personnel and even the law enforcement officers individually. I felt like his knowledge of the people and process was a big advantage for me and I ended up with the best possible result. His fees were also very reasonable and much lower than what he saved me in fines and fees. Thank you Lorenzo.

Highly recommended
I used Lorenzo for some traffic issues. He was very thoughtful, thorough, attentive and responsive to all of my questions and concerns. He was very responsive to my emails and call and took care of all of my legal issues. Since then, I have referred him to several friends for issues ranging from criminal, civil and wills. Everyone who followed up on my referral praised Lorenzo's services to me. I have and would highly recommend his services again.
