Customer Reviews:

I was charged with a DUI in New York City in 2011. It was a refusal case. The first day I met Steve, I knew I was in good hands. He went through every minute detail about the case weighing the strengths and weaknesses and was upfront with me. Steve was very professional and knowledgeable. I was very scared at that point because it was my first time going through this process. Also, being a professional, my career was at stake, so I wanted to make sure I went to the best. He put my fears to rest and guided me throughout the process. In particular, he was very approachable and he used to call me back right away. I honestly feel that I could not have wished anyone better than him to represent me. Since, I was innocent, I wanted to go to trial as this was my best chance of winning the case. Steve went over the trial process with me, and guided me at every step. He was very effective with the jury and was able to catch their attention every time he spoke. I was acquitted of all charges after the trial. I would highly highly recommend him if you have been unfortunate like me and need representation.

I was arrested in 2013 in New York City for DUI. Steven was recommended to me by one of the attorneys at the courthouse the night of my arrest. Not knowing exactly who to turn to I googled Steven Epstein and found his credentials to be quite impressive. Once I met him and he reviewed my case I felt I was in great hands. He explained the process and the possibilities in my case with a well explained, no nonsense approach. Steven was with me every step of the way and would always return my phone calls promptly. He knew I was very concerned and new to this, having never been arrested. I felt I was innocent and deserved to fight the charges. As a professional myself, it was important for me to protect my reputation and my career. Mr. Epstein made sure of that. He defended me well by exhibiting great knowledge and court room skills to help clear me of the charges. I would highly recommend Steven Epstein to anyone requiring the representation for a situation such as mine. He is a respected academic, a brilliant attorney and very importantly, concerned for his clients. It was truly a pleasure to work with him.
