Great Attorney!

My Husband and I received 3 moving violations between the 2 of us, within a month. All were reduced to 0 point non moving violations. My husband has a horrible driving record and would have lost his license without the help of Mr. Azria. He is the only attorney i trust with my traffic tickets. Over the past year and a half he has successfully handled 4 tickets for my family. Excellent!

I am thrilled with the outcome, and I recommend highly Mr. Habib and his firm for any traffic tickets/other matters in NY. Thanks so much!
