Paid $4000.00 to hire a " law firm," but only got one lawyer. I told him about a previous issue in another state and he jacked the price up, adding another $3000.00; and I told him not to say anything. He said he can do that as long as the DA didn't bring it up. He tol the DA and I got a DWI on my record. I feel like I could have represented myself and get the same results. I wouldn't trust them.

I have used this law firm for a couple of different traffic tickets. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.




The best DWI law firm out there! You will have nothing to worry about if these guy's are on your side!




Great law firm. Don't look anywhere else for a DWI lawyer. You will get the results you want and they will handle everything for you.


My attorney was extremely professional, as well as friendly. His enthusiasm, availability and knowledge about my situation was encouraging, and I was pleased with the outcome. This firm also made it possible for me to arrange a payment plan, which is not an option through many other attorneys/firms. They were very thorough, and kept me posted throughout the process. A big thank you to Adam Eggleston (and the rest of the Anelli Xavier defense team who assisted in my case)!




Very pleased with the results of my case, my lawyer helped me understand the entire process. I was new to the whole DUI/DWI thing and he helped me understand everything what was going on every step of the way.



Constantine Destefano is an ou...

Constantine Destefano is an outstanding attorney representing an outstanding law firm. I would recommend Mr. Destefano or any of the other partners associated with this group. Anelli Xavier offered me piece of mind, a fair payment arrangement and most of all justice. I've said it before, I may have not been right, however they made sure that I wasn't taken advantage of or improperly charged. They know their stuff and it is quite reassuring to know that there is someone out there that will have your back when your livelihood is at stake. They will make sure your case is handled properly, you will never be left unanswered if you have a question and most importantly they know their laws, regulations and protocols of this fine state of New York. A million times thank you!

“…any questions that I had were answered very promptly, Joanne was very helpful with any questions that I had prior to my court appearances and Derek did an excellent job preparing me the morning of court so I knew what to expect. I was pleased with the knowledge that my legal team had. They had me do things prior to the judge asking me to do them, making me feel like the judge appreciated me being proactive. Whether the question I had seemed insignificant or very important, I was answered fully and promptly. I would highly recommend this law firm to anybody I know may be in this situation in the future. I appreciated the fact that I was able to live my normal, everyday life while this process was going on. When my legal team needed anything from me they asked and I was able to complete whatever task and still live my life. There was little stress involved with this process and I felt the legal team treated me with the upmost respect. Thank you so much for everything. Great job”

I recommend Anelli-Xavier to everyone who needs serious DWI defense.

I offer great thanks to Anelli Xavier for your dedication and steadfast professionalism during a personal tragedy in my life. Not only did you serve as my legal counsel; you also made yourself available to me every step of the way.

I needed serious DWI defense and with Anelli Xavier, I got it. I as facing a serious charge and if convicted, I would have not only lost my job, but my chosen career for the rest of my life. I couldn’t afford to lose my job and consequently I could not afford not to have Anelli Xavier with me in the classroom, Anelli Xavier searched the ends of the earth to help me prove my innocence and obtain a not guilty verdict in my case.

I especially appreciated working with the Anelli Xavier team because they are professionals, despite the small town politics I was subjected to; they hit a home run with bases loaded. I first consulted with three local attorneys and they agreed that if I fought my case I could win. However, they added, either they did not want to work that hard, it was difficult to fight local law enforcement bureaucracy or I would have to plea to a charge that I was not guilty of. Anelli Xavier gave the fullest efforts to reason with the DA, to no avail. They believed in me and they did not ask me to accept an offer that I was not guilty of, they fought with me every step of the way; AND WE WON!

It is because of the Anelli Xavier team, I have my life back. Not only my job is safe, but also the security of the chose path and my quality of life, restored. I cannot put a price on my dignity and freedom; I can only tell you that because of my experience with Anelli Xavier, I have them both. My life restored 100% because I hired Anelli Xavier. Resources accessed and used by Anelli Xavier would never have been available to me without the firm. Again thanks to my counsel and the entire Anelli Xavier firm…I recommend Anelli-Xavier to everyone who needs serious DWI defense.

Thank you!!!

To Anelli Xavier:

From: Leroy Williams

"I would like to express my profound gratitude of two of your attorneys. They were my lawyers in a DWI case when I was facing a felony.

When my attorney took my case there was several things he said but one that stayed in my mind was that he couldn't promise the outcome but that he would represent me with all of his skills and experiences in DWI cases. The one thing that he did not tell me was but I learned over time was how he took this case personal. The characteristics found in my attorney is not found in my contact but is one important element that made me feel so special that he not only was my attorney representing a customer but someone that cared.

My other attorney was a person of great knowledge of the courtroom practices. He also was an attorney that showed me a lot of personal attention because I was afraid of jail time. I remember the first day we met. He tried to calm me down from being nervous in court. The 1st charge was a Felony, he had the Felony reduced to a misdemeanor. He also was trying to work on reducing the misdemeanor to a violation. When a man is facing jail time and you have an attorney like him, and you look at his body language, you listen how he articulates and I knew I was in good hands. I knew that he wasn't fighting for a customer but fighting for a someone who he cared about. I last day I was in court he was able to get my felony reduced to a simply violation. From the DA, to the Court Clerk, he's able to have them work with him to get through the red tape. He has book sense needed in court and also the common sense needed in court but the one special component he has is compassion and respect for members of the court.

In conclusion, I would like to thank my entire legal team (at Anelli Xavier) for there services. I am positive that I will not need there services again, but without doubt will give your firm high praise to any friend, family member who needs such representation."
