Highly professional. Rob managed our family's legal case with professionalism, kindness, and expertise. It's no fun navigating the criminal justice system, so being able to rely on Rob was immensely helpful. What's more, he got us exactly the result in a DWI case that he had promised--a non-criminal traffic infraction. If the need arose, I'd hire him again in a second.
I know Robert Schuster to be both a tenacious advocate and a brilliant tactician
I know Robert Schuster to be both a tenacious advocate and a brilliant tactician. I have known Rob for over thirty years, but I recently had the pleasure of working with him on a complex, multi-jurisdictional matter. I felt very comfortable relying on the vast expertise he brought to the table, and consequently, we were able to navigate our client safely through treacherous legal circumstances. Furthermore, Rob has consistently impressed me over the years with his professional achievements which literally range from “great” to “unbelievable”. After many candid discussions, it has become clear to me that Rob’s default approach to any matter is (1) comprehensive analysis; (2) strategic planning; and (3) fearless execution. There is no question that Rob Schuster is the kind of attorney someone needs to engage when their most critical interests are at risk.

Robert Schuster is an outstanding attorney who works tirelessly for the best outcome for his clients. Our special needs child faced seriously felony charges, when in fact, he was the victim. Robert Schuster took our son's very complex case that became more complex and challenging over time and provided a excellent level of effective and professional representation.
When we first met Robert Schuster, we were overwhelmed by what had happened to our son and what brought us to his office. Robert did an excellent job of explaining the process and his strategy. In the end, he was able to get all of the charges dismissed, including the serious felonies, by persistence and finding extensive inconsistencies in witness testimony. He fights for the best possible outcome for his clients.
An outstanding, intelligent, result-oriented attorney who deeply cares about his clients
Robert Schuster is an outstanding, intelligent, result-oriented attorney who deeply cares about his clients, exercises excellent legal and professional judgment, and knows the Westchester courts like the back of his hand. I called Robert based on a referral after a DWI arrest prompted by my ex-wife put my law license and career in serious jeopardy. Robert painstakingly, firmly, and repeatedly explained the rather unique circumstances of my arrest to the presiding judge and assistant district attorney and ultimately was able to persuade them to drop the charge to DWAI - a non-criminal traffic infraction. I could not be more grateful to Robert for his genuine kindness, concern and caring advice throughout this very difficult chapter in my life. He said he thought he could deliver a great result and he came through with flying colors. I highly recommend him to anyone faced with similar issues or charges.
Robert is totally on his game and expert in his area of expertise
Robert is professional, knowledgeable and a total advocate for the clients he represents. I was arrested for DWI and Robert was able to get the charge reduced to a traffic infraction and at no time did I lose my ability to drive. He sought the best possible outcome with a minimum penalty. I totally support him. He was the right choice. Even my son was aptly impressed with Robert and said I had made the right choice. I can't recommend Robert highly enough!

As a practicing lawyer for over 30 years, as a colleague, and as a former criminal defense lawyer, I know the difference between good lawyers and great lawyers. If you have any criminal issue, including DWI (or DUI as it is commonly referred to), there is only one person to contact, and that person is Robert Schuster.

Robert Schuster was able to get my charges dismissed! Even from our initial phone consultation, he really took his time to listen and I really appreciate how supportive he was all throughout this very stressful, difficult time. He is incredibly courteous, meticulous, efficient, and always prompt in returning my emails and calls. I also noticed that he really knows the judges and district attorneys in Westchester county and has a very good relationship with them. Thank you so much again! I'm so grateful and indebted to you! I highly recommend him!
Mr. Schuster delivered the results I needed and would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves ...
I recently was arrested for a DWI. This was my first time dealing with criminal charges in my life, so as you can imagine I was quite fearful especially since my professional license was in jeopardy. There was both an accident and an inadequate breath sample, which they deemed as a refusal in my case, making it more complicated and not easily inclined for plea bargaining. I spoke with multiple lawyers who said I had no chance to lessen the charge and advised me to plead guilty as charged, until I spoke with Mr. Schuster. He was very confident and believed he could obtain the lesser charge of a DWAI, a traffic infraction. At first, the DA was unwilling to lessen the charge, but he worked vigorously for weeks and it paid off. I did not need to go to trial and received the noncriminal charge of a DWAI. Not only did he do this, he restored my license after a revocation from the refusal hearing. Although this process was quite difficult, Mr. Schuster delivered the results I needed and would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.
Robert Schuster is the real deal.
Robert Schuster is the real deal. I had been arrested for DWI and was facing serious penalties, but Robert was able to give me confidence that things would work out, and he was supportive throughout the case. He took charge of the situation and was diligent in working to get the best possible result. He was more than my lawyer - he was like a family friend, and I really felt like he was concerned for my well-being and the best interests of my family. Robert, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You got the results that I needed, and were gracious in your handling of the case. I would recommend you to anyone looking for the best!
He is a professional in every sense of the word
I was charged with a DWI refusal and the DA wanted a criminal conviction along with probation. Robert Schuster worked very hard and was dedicated in getting me the results that I needed. He is a professional in every sense of the word and efficient in his approach to work. I knew I was in good hands which is why I would highly recommend him as a lawyer to anyone in need of one.
Look no further if you want the Best!

I highly recommend Robert Schuster without hesitation. He is very knowledgeable, caring and competent.
I have no doubt in my mind that it was Robert's perseverance with my case that lead to several felony charges to be reduced to one misdemeanor. Robert was very determined to see me have the best possible resolution for my type of case. He is a brilliant lawyer, tactician and strategist.
It took almost one year for my case to be settled. Throughout this difficult time for me and my family, Robert always kept me informed and promptly returned ALL phone calls and texts.
If you are facing criminal charges,I strongly recommend that you retain his services.
He did exactly what he said he would do
I am very thankful that we were referred to Mr. Robert Schuster. My boyfriend found himself in an unfortunate situation with traffic violations and a DWI charge.
Mr. Schuster was available immediately on the phone, and set up a consultation for the same week at his office. The location is convenient and plenty of parking was a plus. After meeting with Mr. Schuster he did exactly what he said he would do to prepare us for court. The day of court arrived and Mr. Schuster got a dismissal of all 3 criminal charges with no interruption of his driving privileges and no impact on his career. If you are looking for someone to help you with traffic violations or a DWI charge I can not stress how important it is to choose
Mr. Schuster. Do not trust your future with anyone else.

Mr. Schuster is one of the best defense attorneys I have had the pleasure of meeting and hiring to represent my son. Without going too far with superlatives I must say that he provided effective and experienced counsel, especially on a complex matter that involved my son who continuously aggravated an already serious situation where he was looking at serious time in jail. My son's case required local expertise and understanding of the dynamics of the local court's personalities and processes. Mr. Schuster satisfied my expectations on every level and while the outcome was not the best that I could hope for, the results were, under the circumstances, as good as it was going to get.
My criteria for an effective attorney is someone who respects my time, is willing to take the time to explain things to me, treats me with respect, talks to me and not down to me, understands that I work hard for my money, manages my expectations and keeps me apprised of everything that might impact my case.
Robert Schuster met my criteria and more as he clearly articulated my son's case and provided a high level of professional expertise.
He is well rounded in many ways and although I have only known Robert Schuster for a short period of time and not under the best of circumstances, I will say that he is a good guy to have around and I would gladly recommend him to others who find themselves in a bad place.
Mr Schuster is not cheap but...you get what you pay for.
I came to Attorney Schuster after an a DWI that included a car accident. I am a pretty progressive business man in NYC but my background is far from typical. In my youth (20 years ago) I made a series of bad decisions that resulted in an extreme criminal history ... or it reads pretty severe. Even though this was from 1999 the DA sought to put me in prison based on my criminal history. Attorney Schuster was having none of that! He confidently engaged the judge and explained that this was almost 20 years ago. His articulation was succinct but successful. Mr Schuster is not cheap but as with any thing in life, you get what you pay for.
Robert Schuster is an outstanding attorney. He is understanding and goal oriented, I was told by him not to stress too much over my case as he had it under complete control. Mr Schuster made sure my career would not be jeopardized. He was able to reduce my misdemeanor charge into a disorderly conduct. I would highly recommend Robert to anyone that needs a great attorney!
...honest and hard working
Mr. Schuster has the background and experience that provides results under difficult circumstances. He has the legal knowledge as well as the courtroom savvy to negotiate the tough cases to the best outcome. He is dependable and trustworthy, as well as honest and hard working. He is the kind of attorney one needs when one is in significant trouble.
Mr. Schuster produced positive results!
I highly recommend Mr. Schuster. His expertise and knowledge produced positive results. He is a good communicator and is easily reachable at all times.
Robert was the consummate professional
A DWI arrest is humbling, terrifying and expensive. My daughter was arrested for an aggravated DWI with a high reading in Yorktown. She was grieving a terrible loss in her life and had too much wine to drink the night before. The next day she got into a minor one-vehicle accident. Her blood alcohol was still over the limit from the night before, so she was handcuffed, taken to the station and held for hours without being allowed to make a single phone call. She had never been in any kind of trouble before and was traumatized by this experience. I knew I had to find the best lawyer possible to help us navigate this intimidating and powerful criminal justice system. I found Robert Schuster’s name on the Internet. His ratings were the highest possible and his many reviews were stellar. Now I will add my review to his long list of accolades. From the start, he helped me to accept the reality of the situation and to direct my energies toward helping my daughter find healthy ways to cope with her loss. He asked me to trust him to work for the best possible outcome. At the arraignment I observed his skills, self-assurance and excellent rapport with the staff, the DA and the judge. This was not as evident in other cases I observed, so I was extremely grateful and relieved to have Robert standing next to my daughter when she had to go before the Judge and DA. Over the weeks that followed, Robert was the consummate professional, returning all my calls quickly, patiently consoling me and answering all my questions while most importantly, negotiating with the DA and judge to achieve the best possible outcome, which was a conditional discharge. If you find yourself shaken to the core by a DWI arrest, call Robert Schuster. He will help you find peace of mind and the best possible outcome.
Robert made this awful experience easy to navigate
After I was pulled over for DWI, i knew i was in serious trouble. I met with a few attorneys, they didn't exactly seem inspired to help fight for the best possible result. I then consulted Robert Schuster. I was instantly impressed with his knowledge of DWI laws, he had a few scenario's that were detailed point by point in how my case might turn out. The end result was a lot better than I could have ever imagined. Robert is extremely organized & I think he might know the letter of the law better than most judges do. I cannot recommend him enough, the DWI laws in New York are scary and confusing-Robert made this awful experience easy to navigate.
Hiring Robert Schuster was the best decision
Hiring Robert Schuster was the best decision I did for my DWI case. I will not rant about what exactly he did for me, but let’s just say it could have been worse if I did not hire him as my lawyer. He knows his way around the court process and will guide you through any problems or concerns. As for, when I had any questions or concerns, he was never busy to respond via email, phone or texts. I would highly recommend Robert Schuster as an attorney to friends and family if needed. Trust me, you will not be disappointed! He thrives for complete satisfaction on any case.
I am grateful for the efforts of Mr Schuster
Mr Schuster represented my son on a difficult case that was satisfactorily resolved in his favor. Mr Schuster responded to my questions in a timely manner and kept me appraised of the case's progress. We mostly traded emails, but when necessary, we talked and he was available or got back to me in a very timely manner. Ultimately the charges against my son were dismissed. Before Mr Schuster got involved, the charges had been unable to be resolved and the case had gone nowhere, with an arrest warrant outstanding to boot on my son. I am grateful for the efforts of Mr Schuster and his successful outcome.
Robert Schuster is a well rounded criminal lawyer.
I recently experienced the possibility of being convicted for sexual assault charges. Not only was I emotionally devastated but very confused of the nature of the charges. I reached out to Robert Schuster to seek for legal representation. Mr. Schuster aggressively pursued my case via questioning law enforcement officers and potential witnesses regarding the nature of the accusations against me. Eventually after several months of investigation, Mr. Schuster was able to persuade law enforcement to drop the charges without going through the arraignment process. He is wise, experienced, methodological, and ethical. You will be in great hands!
Mr. Schuster is a knowledgeable, responsive, experienced and hardworking attorney.

...made me feel that my son and I were his only client.
My son had a complex and multi jurisdictional case revolving around probation violations, aggravated by traffic infractions and I needed a competent and passionate advocate for my son who was facing serious jail time. From the very beginning, Robert Schuster exhibited a level of competence and ability from his years of experience that went far to lighten my dread of the situation. Robert Schuster made me feel that my son and I were his only client and gave me the confidence that he would do whatever was necessary to minimize the pain. I would gladly recommend him to anyone who finds themselves on the wrong side of the law.
He expertly guided us through the process from day one.
Attorney Schuster from day one provided a realistic approach to our case and laid out what we were going to face step-by-step. He expertly guided us through the process from day one. Recommendation is to listen and follow his instructions. Most importantly, he asked questions of the DA and pursued avenues that other lawyers may not have and the result was overwhelming favorable. We didn't "settle" and appealed our case and it was well worth Robert's fees. As an aside, he is well versed in the medical side of issues involving DUI/DUAI which could play a major factor in the outcome of a case. Lastly, he was prompt with returning call and questions, patient with explaining the process, and put us in touch with the right resources to make this "mistake" as painless as possible. You will be in good hands.
Robert is a skilled and brilliant lawyer.
Hiring Robert as my attorney was the best decision I made. Robert is a skilled and brilliant lawyer. I was charged with several felonies, all were dismissed and one reduced to a misdemeanor. He works diligently to achieve the best possible outcome, promptly returns phone calls, and explains every step of the process.
Robert Schuster is an attorney that you can trust.
I will start by saying that Robert Schuster is an attorney that you can trust. I say this because I cannot say enough about Robert Schuster who took my son's very complex case that became even more complex and challenging and provided a high level of effective and professional representation.
I remember first being intimidated by the long list of challenges that my son's case posed, but Robert Schuster exhibited an amazing ability to cut through the legal maze and make me and my son feel comfortable in the knowledge that he would do whatever possible to obtain an outcome that is realistic under serious circumstances.
While this was the first interaction that I had with Robert Schuster, it was not my first interaction with an attorney. He took the time to explain the situation, the individuals who would impact the case, the strategy and the possible outcomes and maintained an open line of communication with me at all times. My primary take away from this experience was that he is a very skilled, compassionate and concerned lawyer whom I would gladly and confidently recommend to any other person who finds themselves in a difficult legal bind and who can feel confident that Robert Schuster will provide the utmost quality legal representation.
Robert Schuster is hands down the best lawyer I could have hired
Attorney Robert Schuster is hands down the best lawyer I could have hired for my case. Robert is an expert in his field, and got me the best sentencing result possible, with as much leniency granted to me as the law would allow for my charge.
He explained every step of the process to me in a professional, courteous, non-judgmental manner. Robert was available to me throughout my case through phone or email, always responding quickly and friendly. I never felt like he was too busy to answer my questions or explain things to me.
In court, Robert truly fought for me, and I am beyond words with the gratitude I feel for his work and the subsequent outcome of my case. His knowledge of and repertoire with DA and the court system speaks to his success in his profession and his ability to get clients the results they want and deserve, especially for first time offenses.
I cannot recommend Attorney Schuster enough. You will not be disappointed, he is worth it!
I felt very confident and was very happy with the excellent outcome.
Robert did an absolutely great job for my daughter in a traffic matter. He returned my call immediately and saw us that same day. He knew all the intricacies and created a plan to challenge the Trooper any way he could. Before we even got to court it was resolved. Robert also responded to my texts immediately, which is very reassuring. I felt very confident and was very happy with the excellent outcome.
Robert Schuster made the whole process easy.
I was arrested for DWI in New York. I am originally from Miami, FL. Being arrested for DWI is a serious offense. Robert Schuster made the whole process easy and amazingly quick. I was able to go back home to Florida in under 2 weeks under conditional discharge, no jail time nor probation. Robert has thorough knowledge of DWI laws and I highly recommend him if you want aggressive representation.

It was worth every dollar
Mr. Schuster represented me on my DWI. I had a prior DWI but this time they pulled me out of the car for no reason. First I went to another lawyer who was going to charge me the same fee just to plead the case out. Mr. Schuster explained to me exactly what he was going to do, and why - then he did it. We had a probable cause hearing and the case was totally dismissed. This man knew the law and calmly made the officer on the stand look like he couldn't do his job. I didn't even have to pay the tickets. It was worth every dollar to be able to keep my license and not have probation with the interlock which is what I would have gotten with the other lawyer.
I can't recommend Mr. Schuster enough to anyone who gets in trouble.
I got arrested for shoplifting some expensive clothes. It was just a stupid mistake. I never did anything wrong before and I was really upset. This lawyer found a way to use the circumstances in my life to get the case dismissed. He was patient and answered all my calls even though I was very nervous. I can't recommend Mr. Schuster enough to anyone who gets in trouble.
If you are in trouble, this guy can save you. He knows the law and is not afraid to fight for you.
I was charged with felonies for trying to pick up a teenage girl I met on the internet who was really a cop. She looked much older in the pics. The prosecutor was offering me 4 years in prison to take a plea. I hired Mr. Schuster to take the case to trial. After the trial, I was acquitted on the top count and I didn't have to do any time. Mr. Schuster had us get expert computer people to testify. He had a strategy from day one and never let it go, even though I had my doubts. If you are in trouble, this guy can save you. He knows the law and is not afraid to fight for you.
He always made time for me and his assistant was nice too.
My ex-girlfriend had me arrested after a fight we had in front of her kids. The DA charged me with all kinds of stuff that made no sense. It was out of control. I found Mr. Schuster on the web. He got all but one of the charges dismissed and that one was reduced to a minor violation. He worked with me on a payment plan and he spent a lot of time hearing about all the background in the case. He always made time for me and his assistant was nice too.
I felt he really cared about me and my case. Total pro.
I was looking at 5 or 6 charges including first degree assault on a cop. It was all BS and no one believed me. The first lawyer I had wanted me to plead it out and do the time. My sister hired Mr. Schuster. He came to see me right away. He got my bail reduced - twice - until I was able to get out of jail. He investigated the scene, got the felonies dismissed at the hearing and in the end I went from looking at 15 years to 3 weeks time served. I was ready to pay him the trial fee but he got me such a good deal I didn't need to pay the fee. I felt he really cared about me and my case. Total pro.
He got exactly the results I needed.
He got exactly the results I needed. He worked very hard to get my bail reduced and he was successful in getting it reduced from $20,000 to $1,500. After I told him what plea bargain I would be willing to accept that is exactly what he negotiated on my behalf.
He makes it a much more stress free experience
Robert helped me achieve the best result I could have hoped for. Throughout the entire process, he was very knowledgeable, helpful, and open. Even though people deal with him during their worst times, he makes it a much more stress free experience. I would highly recommend Robert Schuster for anyone's criminal defense needs.
Robert took command of everything
Robert Schuster is the real deal. I was facing very serious DUI charges and Robert did everything he could to make me feel at ease and comfortable throughout the entire process. Robert took command of everything and worked diligently to get me the best possible outcome for my case. Robert became more than a lawyer; he became more like a family friend who looked out for me and my family's best interest. I want to thank Robert from the bottom of my heart for all that he did for me and for the gracious way in which he handled my case. I would recommend Robert to anyone looking for a great lawyer. Thanks Robert!

When I was pulled over for allegedly running a red light, I was angry at the
injustice but only when I realized the consequences of perhaps having my license
suspended, did I realize the seriousness of the situation. I consulted with

only did he handle himself professionally when in court, but he also was able to
empathize with my situation and to defend my rights as a driver. He's known to
the court, his charisma is evident as he exhibits great confidence and
reassurance. Knowing that Robert was on my side made the whole difference to
me. He understood the situation and with his knowledge of the law and of the
courtroom he was able to safeguard my license. I would recommend Robert Schuster
