I am so satisfied with the service and help I received from Mr. Michael Paul. He helped me resolve what seemed like a minor issue but that unfortunately dragged on forever. We worked together for almost two years. I was terrified that things will go bad but he was confident that we will win and dismiss the case. And he was right all the way. He went above and beyond and always made sure to stay in touch. I would recommend him to anyone that needs the help!

I had the pleasure of having Mr Michael Paul represent me and work on my case. He is a very polite and educated person. He has many years of experience. He lead me in the right direction. His price is very reasonable. He doesn't judge or critize anyone. He is a fair person. One thing I can say, he is not money hungry. I definitely will be recommending him to my friends, family, co-workers, etc

I’m very grateful to have found Mr. Paul and I don’t think I would have been able to move forward without him. I had no idea how to proceed with my case and was in need of help. He was very confident about my case and what to expect going forward.I have nothing but great things to say about Mr. Paul. He spoke with me at the very start of the process to explain what he needed to do to provide support and guidance.He followed up with me all along and provided excellent support from beginning to end. I feel that his strength, demeanor, and determination gained my immediate trust. A masterful strategist that is very experienced and compassionate. Not only did he defend me, he investigated all the evidence and helped get the charges against me dropped. He was poised to defend my livelihood and I would recommend him to anyone. I could not have asked for anything more and can now finally move on with my life. All I can say is thank you for his service and I greatly appreciate his time and hard work.

Michael Paul is an amazing attorney and human being. Being my first time having any sort of law trouble, I was incredibly stressed and anxious. Once I spoke to Michael he took all of my worries away and reassured me I had nothing to worry about. He was totally right, he was able to get these ridiculous charges dropped! Last thing he even spoke about was price, even when I mentioned it (which ended up being extremely fair). If you’re not only looking for an amazing attorney, but someone who will actually care about you, and your case, look no further.

Mr. Paul is the best defense attorney in NYC. I took my case to him, and the last thing he discussed with me reluctantly was his fee. He was more interested in listening to me, wanting to know exactly what happened truthfully, and explained to me how he would defend me and the end result he was aiming at. My physical and medical condition at the time we’re in dire bad shape including cancer/radiation and almost 0% mobility. He made sure I was given a DAT and then an IV appearance. All of the charges by a mom and daughter combo, which were not the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th time, were all dropped/dismissal including all OOP. What was happening all along unknown to me, was that Mr. Paul was working feverishly behind the scenes working with the DA and investigators. By presenting my case with evidence to back it up, he was able to persuade the DA office to drop all false charges. Mr. Paul is a listener, he’s compassionate, he feels your pain and most importantly he fights for you to the very end. He is soft spoken but a ruthless defender. He stop and corrected an almost Crimal injustice. He is my 5 stars Hero.

Respectful, kind, generous are generally not the words that come to mind when hiring a NY attorney. It’s what you can expect with Micheal Paul ESQ. He was there when we needed him from the beginning to the end of our proceedings and put us at ease during an otherwise taxing situation. You’ve got one call-make it Paul!

Mr.Paul is a phenomenal attorney! I spent over a week looking for an attorney who I felt would best represent me and my case! I wanted a quality attorney and didn’t have edited/deleted reviews… With the nature of my case, I kept finding lawyers who would immediately quote me a five figure retainer without hearing my entire case and tell me that I was going to jail for years if my charges were stacked.. Mr.Paul is unlike any of the other attorneys that I spoke and met with… He called me back after his case and he patiently listened to me and he reassured me immediately that everything would be fine and he would get on the case as soon as possible. I was to call my court appointed attorney and within the hour my court appointed attorney called and told me that Mr.Paul would be representing my case. Moments later Mr.Paul called me and told me that he had a possible favorable resolution but he reassured again he needed more time to get an even better resolution. Between that time I probably called him everyday in the beginning sometimes twice a day and every time he was responsive and reassured me “everything would be fine”. He was patient, responsive, transparent, kind, and listened. I never felt rushed off the phone or like I was annoying him. He truly is the kindest lawyer who means business! He is truly the best lawyer out! If you or your loved one are looking for an attorney who cares about his client and will got to bat for you when you’re looking at serious charges.. look no further… Mr.Paul is the attorney that you’re looking for! He will make sure everything works out in your best interest!

Michael Paul is one of the best lawyers out there, and I assure you, he knows what he is doing. He is a very good listener, soft-spoken, but surprisingly aggressive in court. I can testify to that since he represented me in a court case. I can vouch for his professionalism, experience, and capability. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would definitely give him a 10.When you are in a criminal case or misdemeanor, he is the lawyer to go to. He provides a variety of payment plans, and a constant channel of communicating (he provided me with his personal phone number to call him at any time when I need him). Sure enough, he was available 24/7. This is a lawyer you can definitely depend on. It might seem as though I am praising him, but I assure you, if you experienced him, you would be compelled by your intuition to do the same too. Thanks to Mr. Paul I get a second chance at life.🙏

Premium is the only word that comes to mind to describe Michael Paul and his team. Not only as attorneys, but also as supportive advisors along the way. When I got into my nightmare, I felt as if I let my family down and I saw no light at the end of the tunnel. Low and behold I contact Michael through a family friend and he assured me that my worse days were behind me. That proved to be 100% true. Not only did I get my car back, but the actual case got thrown out completely. This mans heart is made out of pure gold. Thanks again Mikey! 🙂

It's like Gotham city out there, the world shifts to apandemic. A case going longer than the pandemicdid. 3 and a half years It's like I took a spaceship toMars, but never Returned. Mr. Paul has fought mycase for almost 2 years. This started with a legal aid which was like talking to a wall. First day talking to the wall i realized i needed a real laywer. Not someone who gets a 100 cases a month and just throw people under the bus, just for a plea conviction. First lawyer seemed ok but man... could you just smell a liar. Someone who said this would be dismissed or a violation. I was looking at atrocious charges made by the District Atorneys in Downtown Brooklyn. This went on for months and months with 1st lawyer then turned into year. I had to have a second opinion. So i was recommended by a good friend who said Micheal Paul not Micheal Jordan but man! am I grateful to say he slammed dunk my case! This man will not lie to you. He will give the facts and if he had to push for trail, he would not let you down. If you"re going to Mars make sure you take Mr. Micheal Paul with you. he has a spaceship to get you back! It's a shame that the District Atorney are way over powered. It's abashed knowing that the "justice system" lacks civility and experience in order to make a decision on a case that is not egregious. Mr. Paul! you took nails off my back and you gave me fresh air! even though the virus flots around. I feel less worried about my future. Be safe everyone and believe in the man who shoots hoops in the court house!

Paul listened and understood, he did not judge. He genuinely cared about our family situation and feelings. He was responsive, professional and eager to resolve the matter as soon as possible to avoid us going thru a worse situation. Paul does not confuse you with legal terms or brushes off your questions or concerns. He is calm and re-assures you he can resolve the issue. If ever faced with an unexpected legal situation we will definitely reach him once again. Even the D.A. commented that we had a great lawyer. I have his number saved on my phone and will be recommending him whenever possible. A great lawyer near our home - Perfect!

Offers that they offered us he rejected it before I can tell him how I feel because he told me and felt he can get a way better deal. I trusted him. I ended up getting off with a dispelled conduct time served.. I have a whole rap sheet conviction felonies everything. Oh yea did I forget to mention I was indicted in Supreme Court. The face the judge made when they offered me that deal he was even shock he tried to 2nd call it to talk to the da on the case and everything but guess what my man mr Paul gets it done love this guy right here I will always call him if I ever get into a situation

Before meeting with Micheal Paul I felt nervous and anxious about the future of my case. Mr. Paul made me feel at ease and told me exactly how he would address the situation. I can tell Mr Paul has a lot of experience dealing with all types of cases. He was able to get me first in line at the court hearing and negotiated 3 days of community service instead of 5. I highly recommend visiting mr paul if you run into legal trouble.
23:06 16 Jan 19
Mr. Paul was a great relief and very helpful throughout my time with him. I had got into a scuffle with another guy who told the police he wanted to press charges (even though he started it). This happened on a subway platform as we were both heading to work. I told the police I did not want to press charges because neither of us got significant damage and figured the other guy might think the same.Well, the other guy decided to press charges so I had to go to jail that day.Long story short, after this I was very worried that video evidence would not be found or proof of my innocence was there. My wife was worried, I was worried. Looking at a max sentence of 1 year in prison I called Michael Paul and told him my story.He was very assuring and got straight to the point. He explained the likely outcome and how I should relax. Tell my wife to relax, etc etc.So, we did. The other gentleman who I got into a scuffle with never pressed charges (he knew he was guilty) and the case was dismissed 3 months later.Throughout the entire time Michael was available through text to calm my concerns and verify/answer questions of mine. It was a very pleasant experience overall.Michael is clearly an experienced Lawyer and I don't regret a single penny I had to pay. I do recommend him.

Michael Paul's expertise with criminal law is perfectly complemented by his warmth and compassion. Additionally, Mr. Paul was always accessible whether I had a quick question or a need for a lengthy discussion. I always had the confidence that I had the best possible legal representation each time that Mr. Paul and I were in court. I could not have asked for a better outcome for my case as Michael Paul successfully negotiated and received an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal (ACD).If you are in trouble with the law and require knowledgeable and compassionate legal representation, I highly recommend Michael Paul.

In 2016 I got into an issues and ended up getting arrested and facing a felony charge. I knew that if I would of Pleaded guilty to this charge it would put a barrier in my life. I went back and forth for about year with a public defender. I was getting any where and the DA wanted me plea to the felony or go to trial. I was look for a lawyer to assist and I found Michael Paul online. I call Michael at like 9:30pm at night. He took my call and asked me about my case and knew he was able to assist me. I will have to say I was so worried about my future and Michael took those worries away by telling me that he can help me get out of this felony and jail time. Michael was a blessing to my life he not only helpedme but my mother stress about my case and life also want down. Once Michael took over my case by the Second appearance at court he was able to get me a very good plea. I was able to get a repleaer which means a misdemeanor and no felony as well as no jail or probation. He is also assisting me with a certificate of relief, so that I don’t have any barriers to employment. I’m very bless to have found Michael he like no other lawyer in this world. He cares about you and your well-being and what’s best for you. Furthermore, he knows his law and he makes sure your rights are not being violated. I thank god that I found Michael and I will always be grateful for what he done for me. If your looking for a good legal representation this is your person I live in Rochester, NY and he still took my case he is the lawyer you want on your side and I’m not just saying that I will keep his number with me forever if I’m, a friend , family member ever need a lawyer I will have them call Michael .... thank so much Michael for all of your help may god bless you!!!!!!!!

It is with ease and great content that I write this review. When I came to Michael Paul and explained the circumstances of my case, he was not judgmental. He walked me through a number of scenarios and made recommendations based on his experience with criminal law. I was always able to get in contact with Michael and he showed up at every hearing until the final disposition. I was extremely satisfied with the results. If you are considering him for service, please believe that he knows his stuff and will work hard to help you in all the ways that he can.

Mr. Paul was so compassionate, extremely knowledgeable, thorough , and diligent! He did not only present as a attorney, but as a friend. I can not ever remember him not responding to my phone calls, text messages, or emails in a timely manner. I just can not say enough positive things about Mr. Paul and would highly recommend him if you are in the market for a competent attorney!!!Thank you, Mr. Paul for helping my family through a very scary time!

In life you should always have a few good things and thats a good mechanic, a great accountant, and a an even better lawyer!! I found that 5 years ago when I met Michael Paul. I received my second DWI ticket and I was facing serious repercussions. Michael helped me not only understand my options and what I was facing, but he guided me as a friend as well as my lawyer through the whole ordeal! After the court system tried to do thier worst with me Michael got me the best result with a victory in court! He was able to answer any questions I would have, he was always prepared for court, and most of all he treated me like more than a client from day one. I would use Michael or recommend him to anyone who really needed a good attorney. I remain close with Michael to this day and he will be the only lawyer I ever use.

Remarkable!!!!Ever since I hired Michael Paul for my husbands case he has been there through every step of the way. My husband was facing a Class B felony robbery in the first degree and was facing 25 to life if he blew trial. With Michael Paul's help he was very persistent with the D/A to get my husband a good deal of less than 5 years and dropped most of the charges to a D class Felony, with also being a persistent felon. Me and my family are so grateful for his help, and would definitely hire him in the future with any case!!Thankyou Michael Paul. 🙂

From the moment he took over the case he guided us through the criminal justice system to a result that will have no negative impact on my nephews future.

BEST LAWYER IN NEW YORK CITY!!!I was in a terrible situation. I had to fly back and forth from California for this case. Mr. Paul handled a lot of my hearings without me even having to be there. I was not confidant about my chances of winning. Mr Paul was so expierienced and knowledgable. My case went to trial and he won! The case was dismissed. He was worth every penny of the fee he charged. I would hire him again and recommend him to everyone.Be smart and hire this man.Thank you for everything Michael Paul!!!
