After an 11 year marriage, I left my wife upon finding infidelity. After I left, she became so bitter that she filed petitions in Family Court and a very detailed false police report (77th precinct) stating that I had assaulted her in front of my two children. One Saturday, 9/10/16, I dropped my kids off and were met by NYPD where I was arrested and charged with child endangerment and domestic abuse/assault. That began a long period of criminal and family court where I was barred from seeing my children for three months. Had it not been for Paul, my life would have been in shambles. With a PhD, and three clinical licenses, I would have lost everything. Not only did he assure me I would be vindicated (after reviewing the facts and getting my ex to talk to him), but he consistently put me and my parents at ease. That was my first (and hopefully) only run in with police and criminal court. Although I am persuing a divorce through family court, I am able to see my children, maintain my professional trajectory, and move on with life. I’m sure Paul has shelved my case, and is off saving someone else’s life- but I think about him often and can only say “Thank You”.
Highly recommend! !!
Not only is Mr Paul a well qualified and competent attorney, he is also a great person. He represented me during a very difficult time in my life, and always made time for my calls. I was treated kindly and with respect both personally and professionally. Highly recommended.
Paul does a very good job working with the client on the case at hand. I am in a rare situation and am happy and confident Paul is representing me.
Best by far
Paul was very good he keeps you informed and knows what he is talking about. He makes sure that everything is taken care of in a timely manner
AB case representation for Manhattan
I crossed paths with Mr. Paul prestia in the court room after watching his representation of a client he had and approached him with mine. He was polite enough to stop what he was doing and attend my questions and even pull my file and before long entertained being my legal counsel. After this win he further went on to representing my brother in a major role.
Paul tells it like it is. Hes real you know. He breaks your case down and takes care of buisnus in court. Got my case dismissed in s minute. Hes a real cool dude

Mr. Paul does it all
I was arrested in october 2011.I was in a car with other people and the cops found a gun. Mr. P got the case dismissed in supreme court and then sued the city for falsely arresting me.
Got a pleabargain and a fine instead of jail time
