I was an out of state defendant and Mr. Ippolito did a great job getting me through my DUI and Possession charges. He was able to get the possession charge dismissed and obtained an eminently favorable disposition with respect to my DUI charge. He and his staff are courteous and responsive; they are highly professional. I would recommend Mr. Ippolito's services to my friends and family should they (god forbid) be required.

I came in with 6 different misdemeanors and after the first day of court Ricardo personally called me back with wonderful news.
From 6 misdemeanors down to 1 infraction!
If you wouldnt know it you would think I was a movie star or some high powered player in today's world based On our victory today in court.
I have 2 prior DUI s and that history really made our case difficult. With his careful guideance and attention to detail, Mr. Ippolito came out with multiple wins and saved my career.
Unbelievable this was to me since I have never gotten a brake in my life prior to hiring Mr. Ippolito.
PS- His rates are cost friendly, simple and easy to understand.
I never felt so strongly about someone's worth till this day.

My experience with Atty Ippolito has been excellent. He represented me during one of the most stressful times of my life and was always very responsive, professional and demonstrated a great deal of compassion for my situation. He is very knowledgable of the law and does his homework and is always prepared for court. He understands how to research and apply the law accordingly. I would certainly highly recommend Atty Ippolito, however, keep in mind do not expect miracles as there is only so much any attorney is able to do.
