Being named as “the best” or “the top” in his field by professional organizations is truly an honor for Attorney Schuster and our entire firm. What we believe rings true and holds even more weight is what our clients think of us. We are proud to say that we have collected dozens of 5-star client reviews.
We recently received an appreciative client review that truly reinforced why we do what we do:
"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."
The case which our client describes in the review above serves as an excellent example of the type of result Attorney Schuster is known for achieving. In this case, evidence became available for review over a period of months, and on a piecemeal basis. During this time the case was steadily moving forward to a trial where our client would be fully exposed to the risk of a conviction. Fortunately, Attorney Schuster was able to seize upon what evidence had been made available and leveraged it to negotiate a dismissal of the criminal charges on the very day of the trial. Attorney Schuster’s reputation as a trial attorney who leaves no stone unturned and whose willingness to fight for his clients to get the best outcome using every scrap of evidence available is well known by his adversaries.
It is moments and actions as described in this testimony that sets Attorney Schuster apart and makes him one of the best Westchester criminal defense lawyers around, and a Top 100 Criminal Defense Trial Lawyer as named by The National Trial Lawyers.
