Michael saved my life. There is no other way to put it. A personal family dispute, a moments mistake, and a righteous prosecutor were all colliding factors that almost carried me from a civilian with a clean record to the very real possibility of facing significant jail time. From just the initial consult, Michael immediately latched onto the case with a surprising determination, one that remained steadfast even as the prosecutor decided to ramp up the charges. Michael's empathy to my situation was conveyed so powerfully, the court followed suit and gave me a second chance. Along the way, I was allowed to make much-needed improvements to my life and relationships. Thank you, Michael, for giving me a new day!
Assault in the First Degree in Manhattan, August 2016
Every once and a while as I'm walking down the street I think of how grateful I am to have had Michael Cibella as my lawyer. It's been a few years since my DWI and I will always feel guilt or regret but because of Michael Cibella I can at least feel my freedom. His guidance and my hard work paired to make the best outcome - I have a clean record and I will always have Michael to thank for that.
Aggravated DWI with an accident in Brooklyn, February 2016
Michael was invaluable in helping me through a difficult time. After being arrested with a DWI and losing my job shortly after, I was at my wit's end. However, Michael's determination to achieve the best result and to keep fighting until the end is what got me through everything. He answered all of my questions and concerns no matter how trivial they were. I am very grateful that Michael had my best interest at heart and I received the outcome we were aiming for. I cannot thank him enough!!!

Grand Larceny, May 2015
Michael could not have done more for me in immediately being available and putting me at ease and then taking me through this mind numbing process of a DWI charge. He answered all my questions, often before I could ask them, had a bull-dog-like tenacity that never stopped fighting for my case and had a great court presentation. He gave me expert advice and representation the whole way through. I was lucky to have him on my side.

Again, I'm forever grateful. I wish there were better words. THANK YOU!

Domestic Dispute, April 2012
Mr. Michael Cibella was my legal counsel for my case of which I had been accused of a serious crime. Mr. Cibella worked day and night enabling me to gain a much lighter sentence then Federal prosecution originally wanted. His professionalism and care for not just me, but for my family, was paramount and unquestionably he was the best legal counsel any client could have asked for. His knowledge, communication, tenacity and work quality were all outstanding.

Investment Bank Trader, Larceny case, July 2011.
Micheal is a charismatic, well spoken, as well as well educated attorney. If his reputation and people skills are an indication of his education then we all need to take a lesson from Michael. I believe Micheal to be a person of strong moral character in not only his professional career but in his personal life. I wish him much success and hope you have a chance to work with him.

Drug treatment court graduate, June 2010
Mr. Cibella is a lifesaver who never stopped fighting for me, even when I was convicted after trial, only to have my conviction vacated by the highest court in the state thanks to his lawyering at trial. Thanks to him, I had my trial and still got released in less time than I was ever offered before trial. Now, I am free again, thanks to Mr. Cibella. Respect.

Brigette Harris, Murder trial, December 2009
I never could have imagined being charged with a crime and if not for Michael Cibella's counsel, I don't know how I would have gotten through it all. Michael was always there to take my calls and answer whatever questions I had, no matter how many times I may have asked it before. He continually put my worries to rest and eventually got all of the charges dismissed. He also worked with my employer in demonstrating that I was not just not guilty, but that in fact I had done absolutely nothing wrong, and in the process, he saved my job. Thank you for being there for me and my family!

Mother, Welfare Fraud charges, April 2008
Michael Cibella fought tirelessly in my defense and the jury in my trial for Attempted Murder returned a glorious verdict in less than 1 hour, finding me NOT GUILTY on all counts. Mike never lost hope in my defense and I am certain no other attorney would have gotten the result that me and my family needed and deserved.
