R.M. / Newburgh NY:

"I would like to thank the law firm of Murphy & Schisano for the job they did on my chapter 13 bankruptcy.  Myself and my husband met with Mr. Schisano and explained to him our financial position.  Mr. Schisano gave us a few options but recommended a loan modification through bankruptcy court along with a procedure which get rid of our second mortgage and a third procedure to remove a judgment against our house.  This seemed too good to be true but it did happen.  In only a few short weeks the payment on our mortgage was reduced by about $250 per month and our second mortgage was voided and reclassified.  On top of this a judgment held by Ford Credit was removed a lien against our house.  Both myself and my husband are extremely grateful to Mr. Schisano and would recommend his services to all."

Dan H. / Orange County:

"I was arrested and charged with DWI in Orange County, NY.  In my entire life, I had never before even received a traffic summons never mind being arrested, placed in handcuffs and taken to a police station.

I was distraught, could not sleep and deeply concerned for my job and my future.  My friend recommended I call the Law Firm of Thomas J. Murphy and make an appointment.  I called their office, sick with worry, and was able to get an appointment that same day.  I met with Tom Murphy.  He interviewed me, inquiring as to my driving history and type of employment.  Tom Murphy explained to me that he needed this information as the consequences of DWI do not stop with just your driver’s license.  After taking information with regards to who I am, he interviewed me about the circumstances of my arrest.  Starting with all my activities the 12 hours prior to my arrest, he was thorough, interested and professional.  After getting all the facts surrounding this incident, he reviewed all the paperwork and then gave me an honest, accurate evaluation of my case including possible defenses and outcomes.

My case was resolved successfully, expeditiously and in a professional manner. I was able to retain my license, keep my job, and manage my daily affairs.

I could never have made it through this “nightmare” without the expertise and guidance I received from Thomas J. Murphy."


Don S. / Dutchess County:

"When I first received my liquor license application, I was overwhelmed and stressed trying to figure out the process of putting the information together in the forms that they required, determining what type of documents I would have to submit to verify my application, and the sequencing of all these events.

Once I retained Attorney Richard Schisano, I was impressed with the way he took charge and gave me a clear and concise explanation of the procedures.  He gave me a list of documents that I would need to provide and laid out each step we would follow.

Thereafter, Mr. Schisano assembled and reviewed the documents.  Prior to submitting them to the State Liquor Authority, he verified that they were complete and accurate.  Richard Schisano was organized, diligent and obviously very knowledgeable.  Throughout the process, he explained the whys and wherefores of dealing with State authorities.  He explained the issues in a clear and concise manner that was easy to understand.

Additionally, because I had hired Attorney Schisano to prepare and file my application, he, as an attorney, was able to certify the information to the State Liquor Authority.  The attorney’s certification substantially shortened the time from application to receipt of my license.  He explained to me that, if an attorney certifies the application, the Board does not have to independently verify the information and it goes directly to the Board for review and approval.  As I said, this saved me months in my application process, allowing me to open my restaurant and start doing business in a very short period of time.

I would recommend Attorney Richard Schisano to any business person who needs to apply for a liquor license or for any other matters before the State Liquor Board.  He is a diligent, knowledgeable, motivated attorney; I recommend him without reservation."


Rinny P. / Orange County:

"I worked with Mr. Richard Schisano in acquiring my SLA approval. From the initial meeting till the end, he was always on top of his work. He made sure we were taking the right steps and in a timely way. I never had to chase him to finish my work and was able to ask questions and get answers right away. He is capable of completing in-depth legal research writing with clarity and persuasiveness. He also understands that it is necessary to pay attention to details and has consistently exhibited such ability. I would work with Mr. Schisano in the future and will recommended all business owners of his services."
