Scott Bookstein stands out as a top notch professional in every way. Scott navigated a complex legal matter for me involving multiple cases over several years. He stands out in my experience involving many lawyers, experts and consultants as the most trustworthy, knowledgeable, committed and personally attentive. He remains a trusted advisor. M.U.
Shortly after “superstorm sandy” slammed into the east coast, I found myself in a west coast hospital, under arrest for charges stemming from a NY Indictment. Despite any difficulties he was experiencing as a result of being displaced by the storm, Scott dropped everything, came to my aid, negotiated a bail package and helped secured my freedom at a time that my health left me vulnerable. My case took almost two years to resolve and Scott was there throughout. The matter involved thousands of documents and countless pieces of evidence. Scott helped make the complex, simple. He worked seamlessly with out of state co-counsel, helping them navigate through local procedure and helped steer my defense team toward a favorable resolution. He didn’t always tell me what I wanted to hear, but in retrospect, told me what I needed to hear. I know quality lawyering, having dealt with many “top tier” and high profile attorneys during my lifetime. While more low key, Scott competes with the most sophisticated attorneys. He is a proven problem solver, who provided me with sound advice and wise counsel. I therefore recommend him without hesitation. S.T.
Scott is a unique attorney who actually cares about his clients. In and out of the court room, his charisma and diligence gets the job gets done. For me, Scott went above and beyond to make sure I had the best possible outcome for my case. Thank you for everything. You always have my high recommendations. S.F.
Scott is a true professional who is both understanding and tough when he needs to be. He helped me navigate a complete mess, and the outcome was a dismissal. Throughout the process, he kept me well-informed, explained the options and gave me excellent advice on which course was best. His fees were reasonable, and I would absolutely recommend him. D.N.
Attorney Scott Bookstein is an amazing criminal defense attorney. I was arrested and was charged with a felony. I am so lucky that he represented me in court. The judge wanted to set a $20,000 bail on me but he argued and I was released on my own recognizance. After a few months of court appearances, he got my case dismissed and sealed. I highly recommend Scott Bookstein to anyone who is in need of a criminal lawyer. He simply is the best at what he does. L.P
Scott was referred to our family approximately 8 years ago by a leading Manhattan law firm to handle a case involving a shotgun permit at JFK airport. He managed that case with great diligence and humor, earning our respect and affection. After a successful outcome, we recommended Scott to defend the child of some friends against a serious criminal charge in Queens and then to defend people we knew in another two other criminal cases, one in Manhattan and one in Long Island. These cases were all managed successfully and with a due regard for budget. Scott has also been helpful in advising our family on sensitive family matters. We recommend Scott and admire his integrity and abilities as a lawyer. V.G.
Mr. Bookstein has proven to be a most competent, courteous and efficient lawyer. He is very eloquent. Most importantly, he delivered a very positive outcome for me. I.L.
While I sit and ponder the words to form my statement, the rush of feelings of being more than satisfied from the service I received from Mr. Bookstein pours in. My thoughts are spilling that much quicker than I can write and it's for that reason I affirm my entry to this today. Scott assisted me in my lowest of times with the complex and scary courtroom procedures and actions that were brought against me. From day one I trusted him; moreover, the months which preceded, I was constantly updated via phone calls, emails, and my own last minute office visits, which I still was able to receive secured attention. Mr. Scott Bookstein is a sharp, "No BS-handling," dedicated "shark" of an attorney who not only I'd use of service again if need be, but also refer to others. Scott, thank you again for all that you've done for me from beginning to end, telling me like it is, and being completely upfront and not holding back any thoughts on the strategies you guided to move past obstacles placed in our path to resolve my legal issues. I wish you continued success and for those potential clients, I trust you'll have the same confidence and great level of service with the assistance from Mr. Scott Bookstein. A.U.
I highly recommend Mr. Scott Bookstein as a defense attorney mainly due to his experience and professionalism. During representation Mr. Bookstein was constantly providing updates and offering defense options. You can always count on speaking directly to Mr. Bookstein in regards to your matter and he takes the time to listen and provide pertinent feedback. Mr. Bookstein remains to be very responsive to questions or concerns I have after representation. J.F.
Scott was knowledgeable, and responsive. While he is busy with other cases, he did his best to respond to any questions I had in a timely manner. He was able to get me out of jail and get my case dismissed! He did a great job overall! A.C.
