I'm a professional driver so it's important to my livelihood to keep my license as clean as possible. Mr. Cyr got my 4 point Speeding Ticket reduced to a 2 point Failure to Observe Traffic Device. A lesser charge with half the points and half the fine. I highly recommend Mike Cyr.

Mike is an awesome lawyer who got my traffic/misdemeanor case DISMISSED! I can't thank him enough! Seriously, if you're stuck with a traffic-related criminal charge, don't risk going to court alone and definitely talk to Mike about your case. He is a true professional, is honest about what outcomes are possible, and cares about his clients. The cost is well worth it. Had I gone to court alone, I'd probably lose the case, lose my job, and end up paying hefty fines plus insurance increase - bottom line, let Mike handle your case and you'll be pretty glad you did!

I called Michael after being arrested for DWI in Ithaca. He was immediately responsive to my inquiry and scheduled a meeting. After first discussing with him he was very honest about the potential outcome and gave advisement on how to handle the situation in a smart and expedited manner. The advice and process he guided me through in order to have myself as prepared as possible before my court date was truly invaluable. I believe it had a large impact on getting my sentence reduced to a DUI non-criminal violation. This was the most important and best possible outcome to the charges.
I am very pleased with Michael's representation and while it's not ideal to be involved in these circumstances, if you find yourself facing similar problems, I would highly recommend Michael to represent you.

So I got a DWI and it was a bad one that included property damage. This was my first and will be my only. Mike Cyr was up front and honest with me from the beginning and told me I was probably looking at probation. He guided me through the process which without his help would have been overwhelming for me. When everything was done He got me a conditional discharge and no probation. Me. Cyr went above and beyond for me and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a Lawyer!

Micael is an amazing attorney and works with passion and dedication. This is the second time that he helped me. I would recommend anyone with traffic violation problems to contact Michael and consider the problem taken care well. I have 100% faith in Michael. Thanks for everything Michael.

When I met with Mike at the end of December 2016, I was facing 2 DWI misdemeanors with a 0.15 breath test and a car accident. Mike was able to convince the prosecutor that my career (healthcare) would take a significant hit if I was convicted of a criminal offense and I was not someone who required any supervision. Despite the bad circumstances of my arrest, I received a non-criminal DWAI conviction -- and with the minimum fine, no jail, no victim impact panel etc. I still cannot believe the outcome of my case and could not have done this without the expertise of Mike. He was prompt with responses to my emails and questions and I never felt alone throughout this whole process. Choosing Mike was the best decision I ever made and continue to be grateful that I made that decision. I cannot say enough good things!

I hired Mike Cyr after being charged with DWI, driving without insurance and driving with suspended registration. Mike laid out the possible outcomes and confidently told me he could talk it down. He was able to make a deal for the minimum possible sentence, no jail time and no criminal record, even before the court hearing.

I was facing a fourth DWI conviction with very serious consequences. Michael Cyr and Larry Newman were very sincere and professional about handling my unique situation. Without these guys i would have lost my son, job, and home! I can't thank them enough for what they've done for me. I first consulted with a huge name attorney always on the radio. Then i realized with the distance, how often would i see the attorney in person? So after reading reviews for local attorneys that specifically represented people with DWI offenses; i called Cyr and Newman because of the amazing genuine ratings i had read. My first call i spoke with Larry for about an hour. He immediately knew the only way i might have a chance is to have an attorney get my story out there. I'm a worry wart and Larry had tons of patience and time to help reassure me of every possible outcome of each court hearing. With Larry and Michael together i felt very confident that i had chosen the right attorneys to represent me. Every individuals case is unique but i can guarantee you that you won't find smarter, more thorough attorneys, than these guys! The reviews were important for me to even make that first phone call. So to thank them i wanted to leave a heartfelt honest review. In hopes that my story might help convince someone else facing very serious DWI charges, to take the leap of faith and choose these two stand up gentlemen. I lost none of the things that were in jeopardy. I received no jail time for a fourth DWI. I'm not proud but doesn't that speaks volumes as to why you would want them on your team.I was facing a fourth DWI conviction with very serious consequences.

Everyone makes mistakes, it takes very special people to see past the bad and recognize the good in you! Make the call! I probably would be in jail or prison right now if i hadn't made that first call. Thanks again guys from the bottom of my heart! I'm forever in debt to you guys.

The first thing that impressed me was that I called Mike out of the blue on a weekend evening and he answered right away - not just to refer me to a secretary or his regular office hours, either. He listened to my issue and began outlining a plan immediately.
Mike was very accommodating in meeting at a time that was convenient for me. But what really won me over was his compassion. As I explained the details of my situation (basically, I had a panic attack while grocery shopping and walked out of the store without paying for my food) I got the sense that not only did he believe me, but he truly empathized with me, which was an enormous relief after having dealt with creepy store security and some really brusque police officers. He was patient and respectful as I explained some sensitive background, and he went to court to advocate for me more as an ally than a paid representative. His diligence was what you'd expect from a good lawyer, but I was overwhelmed by the level of kindness he showed me.
Mike was able to get my charges reduced from misdemeanor petty larceny to a disorderly conduct violation with no fines, just a requirement that I get counseling I really should have had anyway for the panic attacks. He also modified his standard rate for me given the nature of the situation and the comparatively small amount of work he had to do.
I don't expect to ever need a criminal defense attorney again, but if I did I'd hire Mike in a heartbeat. I can't recommend him highly enough.
