So helpful and easy to work with

Mr. Habib and his staff helped me with a traffic matter and achieved an outcome that I was very happy with! I am from outside of the area and Mr. Habib explained the matter to me and told me about my various options, advising me on what I should do to handle the situation. I didn't even have to meet with him in person or attend any hearings, etc., it was all taken care of by Mr. Habib and his staff. I recommend Mr. Habib highly to anyone facing legal issues in NY. I am a very satisfied customer!

I had an outstanding experience with this firm! I was very nervous about a traffic ticket I received, and I was called by one of the partners in the firm within 24 hours, David Bruffett. He assuaged my fears and delineated what options they had for me at an affordable rate. I was able to secure a student discount and hired them on the spot! They represented me well and saved me from having to show up in court after I already moved away from the city! They kept me informed the whole way and allowed me to submit documents electronically which I found very convenient. They ended up getting my ticket reduced significantly in terms of points on my license as well as reducing the fine about 80 percent. I am very grateful to them and would recommend their services to anyone that has a ticket based on traffic infractions.
