  • “Michael went above and beyond the call of duty”
    I almost died in a car accident [ . . . ]. While I was in a medically induced coma, my parents hired a law firm to represent me. Michael Dreishpoon worked at this firm and was handling my case. I developed such a good rapport with Michael that I hired him to represent me [ . . . ] when he opened his own firm.Michael went above and beyond the call of duty with regard to my case by helping me battle my health insurance carrier over coverage issues. Through his extra efforts, I saved hundreds of thousands of dollars that otherwise would have been deducted from my portion of the settlement proceeds. I actually developed a friendship with Michael and even invited him to my wedding. He always returned my phone calls in a timely fashion and even discussed my case with me at night and on weekends.[ . . . ] Michael settled my case for 3.2 million dollars at a pre-trial mediation. I was very pleased with the settlement and the job that he did. I would recommend him to anyone that needs legal representation.

  • “From Day 1 I felt as if Michael Dreishpoon cared about my case”
    [ . . . ] I was an electrician’s helper and was injured when I received an electric shock and fell off of a 6-foot ladder. I hired an attorney to help me out, but I did not feel comfortable with him, so I hired Michael Dreishpoon, Esq. to take over my case.From Day 1 I felt as if Michael Dreishpoon cared about my case. He listened to what I had to say and thoroughly explained how he was going to get me compensated for all of my pain and suffering. After [...] litigation against 2 large Manhattan law firms, Michael negotiated a one million dollar settlement on the brink of trial.Since that day, I have recommended Michael Dreishpoon to several people who needed good legal representation. I found him to be honest, hard-working and available to answer all of my questions.

  • “Michael did a wonderful job”
    I was arrested [ . . . ] and charged with assaulting my husband. He actually attacked me, so I was shocked when the police put the handcuffs on me. A court-assigned attorney represented me for the next 8 months. When it became obvious that the prosecutor was never going to admit that the police arrested the wrong person, I searched around for an experienced trial attorney.I hired Michael Dreishpoon because he told me that I was justified in using force to defend myself. He wasn’t afraid to go to trial and never tried to talk me into taking a plea bargain deal.[ . . . ] After 4 days of trial, I was acquitted on all charges! Michael did a wonderful job. I could tell that he knew his way around the courtroom and had done a lot of trial work during his 20 years as an attorney. I can never thank him enough for believing in me and being my mouthpiece in court.

  • “A personal injury lawyer you would want to hire.”
    [...] I was seriously injured in accident while riding my bike on the road. The seriousness of my injuries made me realized that I needed a very good personal injury lawyer.  My uncle, who won a favorable settlement from an automobile accident a few years before referred me to attorney Michael Dreishpoon. I made an appointment to see him at his office. He sat with me patiently and ascertained all the facts about the accident before giving me an answer about what the possible outcome of my case would be and long it would take. Mr. Dreishpoon spoke to me in a professional manner and made sure I understood precisely what he was saying. He kept me abreast of what was happening during the time he was negotiating with the insurance company by personally calling me. My case was settled within the framework of time he predicted and the financial settlement I received was much more than I expected.  Mr. Dreisphoon did a fantastic job in handling my case as did with my uncle's and I would surely recommend him for any personal injury case. This is a lawyer who you can talk to without feeling pressured.

  • “Excellent representation and skilled attorney”
    Michael Dreishpoon is very diligent, responsive and knowledgeable in his profession. He's very practical in his approach and is very result oriented. I realized I could trust Michael Dreishpoon when I asked him if i should sue someone who presented false allegations against me and if he would represent me. Rather then treat it as a business, Michael gave me good sound advice and advised me to not pursue it.  I would trust his advice and representation in any legal area his practice focuses on.

  • “nothing he didn't know how to handle”
    I was in a car accident [...] and was referred to Michael for representation on the case. The best decision we made. Since the first day until the last, Michael was on top of the case and provided us with feedback and direction as soon as he had any information to share. There was nothing that Michael wasn't aware of and nothing he didn't know how to handle. I have recommended some friends to Michael since and will continue to do so as I believe you wont get better service. If I ever need representation for anything else in the future, I need not to look elsewhere.

  • “Mr. Dreishpoon is the best attorney ever!!”
    Mr. Dreishpoon is the best attorney ever!! I recommend him for all your legal needs involving car accidents or drinking and driving cases. I was involved in a situation [...] and Mr. Dreishpoon got it fixed and put behind me in a prompt manner.

  • “Very professional and always on top of the case.”
    Outstanding lawyer with high credentials who knows the books inside out. I had no concerns working with Mr. Dreishpoon, he does his hardest to get the job done and win. Very professional and always on top of the case. You can expect to hear from him every month at least once. He is always available if any questions arise from the client and if he is out of the office he never fails to return your call. If you are not reaching out to him with any questions or concerns he will make it his duty to call you. He will repeatedly make sure you are aware of everything going about in the case, do not hesitate if confused, he is there to help. Great lawyers do not wait, they are insistent and diligent, Mr. Dreishpoon is just that. Excellent lawyer by far.

  • “Michael Dreishpoon is a true professional in every sense of the word”
    It is without hesitation that I recommend Michael Dreishpoon, an experienced attorney whom I had the good fortune of representing me in a recent court case. Mr. Dreishpoon spent tireless hours gathering information which I hadn’t even considered to bolster my case. He painstakingly took the time to meet with me on many occasions to go over all the elements of the case to make sure I understood everything. I must admit I thought I didn’t have a chance of having my charges dismissed, particularly because of so many other things that were bothering me at the time, but I could not have been more wrong. I was indeed very fortunate to be represented by someone who really knows how to navigate the legal system to get the best possible outcome. My charges were dismissed. Michael Dreishpoon is a true professional in every sense of the word.

  • “Simply put, he made it easy and stress-free for me.”
    I would trust Michael Dreishpoon to represent me in future cases. I’ve consulted with a few lawyers, but I chose him because he was direct, thorough, and confident. He has a wide range of experience with the law, and he was able to handle my case (car accident) against the United States Postal Service. It was a long and frustrating process, but he communicated with me every step of the way. He reached out to me first if there were any updated information. Mr. Dreishpoon always made the time to answer my questions. Simply put, he made it easy and stress-free for me.Furthermore, I needed a lawyer with a traffic related case for my husband and he was the first person to respond to my message, and again, he got the job done. I appreciate everything he’s done and I highly recommend him.
