This second page combines the Supporting Deposition, at the top of the page, with an NYS Criminal Procedure Law 710.30 notice, at the bottom of the page.

Yelp Review

I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. I contacted Ralph Habib from the Azria & Bruffett group to represent me in my defense in connection with a speeding ticket. I had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Habib and found him to be professional and diligent in this area of law. I felt his background and experience would undoubtedly be the right choice. Shannon Liparulo the Paralegal was great at keeping me informed as to the status and sharing the outcome of the case with me. She always answered and returned my calls and emails. I honestly recommend Mr. Ralph Habib and the team from Azria & Bruffett! Thank you Mr. Habib and Shannon. From Mel. S.
