“I hired Mr. Alpert to take care of my son’s traffic violations. He is extremely friendly and will answer all your questions. I’ve emailed Mr. Alpert after business hours and on weekends expecting an answer the following business day but he answered within a few hours, sometimes even within the hour. He handled all my son’s traffic violations with amazingly good outcomes. I don’t know how things work in the courthouse but I feel like Mr. Alpert’s great personality along with his obvious knowledge of the law makes him very well-liked and definitely helps him get positive outcomes for his clients. I have recommended him to family and friends, they have also had a positive experience. You will not regret using this lawyer.” – Dawn

5 star review“I had a car forfeiture case which has been settled by mike. He responded back to me as quickly as he can and answered me all the questions and finally came up with a wonderful settlement with the plaintiff. I felt him as a friend rather than lawyer while working with him. I recommended my friend to him for and even he is happy.” – Rohit

5 star review“Mike was very informative and straightforward with everything in my case. I had 3 tickets that were over a year old, ranging from a no signal violation to a speeding violation of 90 over 55 which all lead to a suspension. After I consulted Mike for the first time, within 10 days, I was able to take care of all my tickets and my suspension. I highly recommend him; he is a great lawyer.” – Eric

5 star review“I endorse this lawyer. I have known Michael since we attended Hofstra Law School. He has a wide array of expertise, offering expert counsel in many areas. He was of particular assistance to my wife in connection with vehicle/driver’s license issue, securing full dismissal of the matter. He also drafted our wills. I have full trust and confidence in his abilities and would seek his counsel on almost any matter. In sum, he is a terrific attorney.” – Richard B.

5 star review“I recently retained Mr. Alpert to assist with my son’s traffic violation. I initially reached out to him and despite being away he responded. He was consistent and timely in his response. My son had 2 court dates. He represented him in both instances. The charge of aggregated unlicensed operator could have come with hefty fines and possible jail time. He negotiated to no points assessed, no jail time and minimal fee. Hands down he was more than I expected. I will be using him again and recommending him to my friends and family. He is honest and knows the law.” – Norma D.

Client Success Stories

Story #1

The client had a high 6-point speed which in the Village of Garden City is a 30 MPH Zone. The challenge was to try and reduce the 59/30 to a parking ticket.

Story #2

A resident had numerous traffic misdemeanors and violations, most notably driving with a suspended license in Suffolk County. The extent of the tickets and charges presented quite a challenge. After speaking with the DA, I was able to reduce all of these serious charges to a parking ticket. It was a big victory.

Story #3

A client with a 5-point cell phone ticket in Garden City Village Court. This is a serious violation and can have an impact on the motorist’s driving record and insurance rates. Michael was able to successfully negotiate a reduction to a parking ticket. Happy attorney and an even happier client.
