By far the best lawyer!
I contacted Adam on a Sunday morning about a Felony DWI I got the night prior. Within an hour I got a call back from Adam. He is by far the most prepared and honest lawyer you will get. He put my mind to ease just even speaking to him on the phone that Sunday. U will NOT be disappointed with Adam.

Excellent lawyer!
Adam Militello was instrumental in getting my DWI reduced to a DWAI. Thanks to Adam, I have no criminal record. (DWAI is a traffic violation in NY state.) I have been able to move past this experience - and now have a new job in a highly regulated industry. Background check for the new job came back completely clear. What a relief that my terrible mistake doesn’t ruin my career. Adam also advised me every step of the way on what I needed to do to position my case in the best light before I went to court. I.e. get a drug test, be evaluated for substance abuse. I called Adam looking for help late on a Friday afternoon - Adam answered the phone directly and offered no judgement- just good advice. Thank you Adam!!

Awesome Service!!
I contacted Adam and his team for a pretty large traffic violation. Not only was he receptive to my concerns about points on my license, but he also understood I couldn't possibly afford high fines. Adam, took complete control over my case, kept me updated answered all my questions and in the end I had a reduced charge and a smaller fine. I would recommend Adam Militello whether it be DWI or a speeding ticket. He and his team are great to work with. Thank you!!

Moving violation
Got my first moving violation in years and was concerned about the effect on my automobile insurance. Adam and his team worked to have it changed and the result is no points or negative impact on my license. Great job by Emma!

Fantastic Counsel
I consulted with Adam on an extremely time-sensitive legal matter. His responses were prompt, thorough and thoughtful. He patiently explained matters and litigious procedure in language I could understand and was careful not to sway my decisions with his own opinions. His insights allowed me to make educated decisions that ultimately led to a successful outcome.

Best of attorney
Words can't fully express my great gratitude and appreciation for Mr Adam. I believe God led me to him after calling several other lawyers. I was just sold after one conversation with him. Both him and his staff were so professional and reassuring. I felt so lost and hopeless at the time and every text, email or phone call to him left me feeling much better. He went above and beyond.......I was a demanding client. He has a good disposition who treated me with respect. Not only was he able to get my case dismissed but he got it dismissed with no condition attached and did so in one sitting. He is the BEST.

Attorney to hire
One night I made a mistake and it would have costed me a lot. I found Adam on google and went in for a consult. He was very knowledgeable and a man of integrity and I immediately hired him. Adam represented me and managed to negotiate a great deal for me. He’s the real deal and he knows what he is doing. I am truly thankful for his representation during a tough time.

My DUI MVP!!!
I used Adam for a recent DUI arrest, and he was a pleasure to work with. From day one he was upfront about what my expectations should be, and what he would be able to do for me given my situation. This being my 3rd such arrest in a relatively short period of time, I wasn't to optimistic about my chances in this case. However, Adam was able to work his magic, and I won't ruin the ending, but I was pleased with the results. If you made it this far, it should go without saying that I recommend Mr. Militello. I pray I'll never need his services again, but if the worse does happen I know who I'll be calling.

Adam Militello was extremely knowledgeable, responsive and effective.
After reading online reviews and consulting with a number of attorneys, I reached out to Mr. Militello who immediately put my mind at ease. Since this was my first time requiring a defense attorney, he took his time to go over my case and explained all the potential outcomes. Throughout the entire process, Adam kept me informed about the next steps and was always available to respond (in a timely fashion) to any question or concern I had. Adam worked hard, efficiently and yielded the best results for my case. I was extremely satisfied with his services and believe he deserves 10 Stars for being a master in his craft and demonstrating his commitment to representing me with the highest standard of care and professional service.

Best Lawyer around!
Adam is one of the most professional, yet empathetic lawyers that I have had the pleasure dealing with. Without providing too much background detail-I found myself in a situation that required me to find a Criminal Defense lawyer (with little notice). With that being said-I knew nothing about the criminal justice system and how it worked, and called several lawyers in the area to find out what I was up against. Adam was that last one I called, and I'm so glad that I did. From the beginning of the conversation he eased my mind, explained to me what the process was and what I could hope for, and was very realistic in the terms and what he deemed the outcome would be. I cannot say enough about his professionalism, and willingness to help (a complete stranger) out in their time of need. His follow up and follow through is beyond measurable, but it's his comforting, yet realistic mannerisms that really set him apart from the other lawyers.

Wonderful Lawyer
Mr. Militello was my saving grace in a very stressful situation. Because of his expertise, hard work and compassionate support, Adam was able to guide me through an overwhelming court system and get my case dismissed.

Adam was great
Adam was first and foremost comforting and realistic when taking my case. He made me feel like my world wasn't collapsing, that I had options, and told me exactly what I had to do in order to make my case as simple as possible and limit the damage control. Adam was upfront, honest, and super helpful at all steps. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a DWI attorney.

Amazing Attorney!
Adam Militello is a great criminal defense attorney. It was my first time offending and helped me through the process as well as understanding it. It was quick and he made it so simple. He is well known at Henrietta Town Court and is so easy to work with. Got me a great deal on my case.

Fantastic!
Fair, Honest, Smart, Trusted When you are in need of an attorney, I can't tell you enough that Adam and his staff are top notch, no nonsense Attorney's with a common sense approach. In my case I won without even telling my side of the story. Adam is smart, witty and knows the law and can make the laws work for you as he did it for me. OBTW, the judges love Adam and his staff! Going to court knowing this gives you a piece of mind that you made the right choice choosing Militello Law Office.
