Cheryl clarified the DA's paperwork for me and answered all my questions and concerns. She also responded to my emails quickly which is definitely a plus! I will definitely be going back to her if I need further legal help!

When I briefly explained my situation to Denine at Gold Shield Training Center, she responded by saying: "I know a good lawyer who can help you. His name is Robert" She provided me with Mr. Schechter's contact number. I made an appointment, and went to see Robert. Robert came to the conference's room, serenely, and listened to me professionally. As soon as I finished talking, Robert said: "We can definitively help you with that for your license to carry." I said to myself, "he can help? It will be easy?" Following that meeting, we started the process. The NYPD approved my case without any complication. Thanks to this firm. Nonetheless, the NYPD was taking about 4 months to mail the final purchase documents. I contacted Robert. In one day, He was able to schedule an appointment at 1 Police Plaza for me to go pick up the license in person.This law office has a LOT OF "POWER." They are very very very effective and professional. I will definitively recommend them to anyone who needs help.

I hired Tilem & Associates, PC law firm a couple of years ago after I was pulled over in NYC and given 3 tickets, which were worth 7 points total. Once I hired them, my headache completely went away, as they took over correspondence with the court and appearing on my behalf. Now, my tickets have been completely dismissed, and it's all due to Tilem & Associates' diligence on this case. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking legal assistance with traffic adjudication!

Spoke with Robert over the phone and via email with a consultation in regards to my Gun rights restoration problems. Robert and this firm was super knowledgeable with certain documentations that was needed to handle the problem, and in fact proved a lot of points and answered a lot question’s that I needed answers to that I couldn’t find anywhere and kept getting the run around about. I have had my long gun rights restored to me a few years ago, which I did on my own!I recently went for my pistol permit and got denied. There is no doubt in my mind that Robert and this law firm could assist me with getting my pistol permit after a bogus denial and me being deemed “not prohibited “ i’m likely going to wait though due to the fact that I am likely moving out of New York State anyway and it’s just a money game here!!!

Nicole Walker was efficient in getting me what was owed to me. Working my case for me, even with me residing in Kentucky. She kept me up to date on how the case was working, and the progress of the case. She wasn't going to let us walk away empty handed. Thanks again.

Cindy Brown is an excellent attorney!!! If you are looking for a Senior Attorney that's polished, seasoned and on top of their legal business, Cindy Brown is a superb litigator. She seamlessly handled my relatives case from beginning to end and won the case in court. Not only is she a great attorney, she also cares about her clients. Our family was and is still grateful to have had her represent our relative in court.

If you're in search of a reliable and skilled attorney, look no further than Peter. Before working with Peter, I felt hopeless and caught in an unsolvable legal dilemma. Yet, Peter's involvement altered the course of my situation. He accepted a case I had little hope for and handled it. Peter went above and beyond and delivered more than what I asked for.Peter's dedication to his clients is unmistakable.He genuinely cared for my concerns, addressing every question—no matter its size—with prompt and thorough responses. Throughout the legal process, Peter kept me well informed with consistent updates, ensuring I was never in the dark about the progress of my case.It's rare to find someone as committed and capable as Peter. He is, without a doubt, one of the best in the legal field. If you're facing legal challenges, look no further than Tilem & Associates.

Nicole Walker was fantastic! She managed to reduce my speeding ticket to a mere parking violation and successfully lowered my 6-point speeding violation to 0 points. Her expertise and dedication made all the difference. Highly recommended!

Look no further for the best 2A representation. Tilem & Associates wasted no time during my consultation assessing my situation; they were straightforward. I worked directly with Mr. Schechter, who listened to my concerns, answered all of my questions, provided sound guidance, and ensured that I understood the process every step of the way. Mr. Schechter knows the law, and his level of professionalism and expertise are exceptional. He did an excellent job presenting the facts to the court, and now I have my pistol permit.

It was Robert Schechcter who made all the difference between freedom and its absence in a recent case. It was his assertive argument that forced the recalcitrant prosecutor to cave in and stop reneging on an earlier agreement reached by her predecessor. Even the judge was new when it was the time for the final agreement before our case was set to go to trial. I am sure Peter Tilem has hired the right people for the right job. Highly recommended for cases where your freedom in society matters.

I retained Tilem & Associates for a civil matter and could not be more pleased with my experience. Throughout the duration of my case, they were professional and responsive. I primarily worked with Nicole Walker, and she went above and beyond to ensure that I received a favorable result. Nicole was a joy to work with and exhibited great empathy despite the circumstances surrounding my case. I highly recommend this firm to anyone seeking legal representation.

My family had a serious issue and we needed a serious lawyer to handle our case. We could not have had a better outcome with anyone else! It was the honest hard work and dedication of the team that prevented any criminal charges and life altering consequences. Our attorney Robert work diligently on an excellent mitigation package that ultimately resulted in reduced charges and the freedom and justice we hoped for. I am forever grateful!

I went to law school with Peter. I knew him to be very knowledgeable going through law school. I've had the opportunity to need him over the years for representation. He is incredibly smart and delivered as promised. I trust him to know and accomplish the results needed. Not to leave his staff out of it, they too were always very courteous and responsive to me.
