Fearless and well-prepared
Mr. Scibetta handled my legal charges recently. I was referred by a friend who couldn’t stop raving about how well it turned out. After several months wasting time with another lawyer I hired Mr Scibetta. He tried my case and I was found not guilty of each charge!!!! Best man for the money ever. Truly saved my life.

Relentlessly committed to helping people!
I felt hopeless until I met with Mr Scibetta. He listened to everything I had to say, and provided guidance every step of the way. Most importantly...he is assertive and gets results! Thank you Mr Scibetta!

Michael has been extremely helpful and knowledgeable answering the multiple questions I've had regarding filing for divorce. His knowledge and compassion have not only been helpful but appreciated as this is not an easy situation for anyone. I would highly recommend Michael for anyone looking for legal counsel.

Extremely satisfied, felt as if they were family!!
I was referred to Mike by a friend. When I made the initial phone call, I was taken care of immediately and had an appointment for a consultation within a week. My consultation was professional, extremely productive and I felt calm for once while I was dealing with a very emotional situation (my kids). Mike took on my case as if it was his own. My situation turned out to be unique, and the judge ruled in my favor. For once, I was getting the help as a single mother that I desperately needed. Mike's hard work turned my life around and set the course for what is now a much better and more stable life for me and my children. I am forever grateful for Mr. Scibetta and how his firm fought for me.

Fantastic Lawyer.
Michael is extremely knowledgable. He understands both the letter of the law and the nuances surrounding decisions. I would recommend him above any other lawyer I have done business with. My father's estate was extremely complicated and Mr. Scibetta enabled us to receive the maximum under NYS law.

True professional- great attention to detail
Mr. Scibetta did a closing on a home for me, which he was very thorough and detailed in his work. He also recently handle a divorce for me and was extremely helpful and expedited the process, too make it as painless as possible. Mr. Scibetta is excellent about calling back and answering any questions or just keeping the client in the loop.

Contact with Mr. Scibetta
I have worked with Mr. Scibetta on multiple occasions. He is a gentleman and a scholar. Although we were adversaries during our previous dealings, Mr. Scibetta has always acted in a honorable and professional matter. He has a very broad knowledge of the law and was able to apply the law in such a way as to receive a great result for his respective clients. I look forward to working with him in the future.

Excellent Attorney
My husband and I used Michael when we purchased our home a few years ago. He was very professional and was always available to answer any questions we had. We plan to have Michael represent us with any legal issues that may arise in the future.
