Norman was the lawyer who saved my butt. I had been dealing with a legal issue for months, and then one day after seeing his advertisement on TV, Norman came to me like an angel from heaven! He answered all of my questions without ever making me feel like I was bothering him or interrupting his life.

Beware! Joseph is among the wolves in sheep’s Clothing in the legal profession, masquerading as an advocate ( ie a good attorney). He is condescending and patronizing and preys upon the clients who come to him in desperation and urgency, particularly those he deems unlearned and ignorant of the law. Prior to getting his retainer he is empathic, experienced and well connected, claiming to be in with whomever you may need on your side to have a favorable outcome to your case. Unfortunately, once he receives his retainer, ( incidentally not in line with standard fees for the service rendered) he does not proceed professionally nor is he an advocate for the client once retained unless he sees the client as a lucrative asset. As a client without means you may not receive any record of his court filings, timely updates so that you are prepared for fines or being detained or arrested, or receipts for his activities detailing his retainer fee. In addition any legal intervention he assures you he will take on your behalf is shrouded, unclear and most likely haphazardly done so that timely updates and having a sense of advocacy and peace of mind are denied. At this point he will quote his real fee for actually handling your case, which will be out of your range of immediate affordability. Since he does not have any incremental payment plan, he will feign concern by informing you that a public defender will be made available through the courts, since he has completed his work on your case. ( not what you were led to believe he was retained to do unfortunately!) In short, list him among the predators of the poor and marginalized and remember to report your concerns to the American Bar Association regarding any legal counsel who fails to adequately represent you and above all Do not retain Joseph Potashnik!!!

He is not only extremely knowledgeable about the endless detours of defense law, but makes sure to prioritize the facts and details of your situation. Why is this important? In realtime, court has so many unexpected moments, but with an attorney like Joseph...It didn't matter because he was ready to activate and He Did! Thank you so much for having amazing talent!

We talked to several attorneys in Nyc area but J. Potashnik was the one my family and I were the most comfortable with. He was very professional, patient, has great communication skills, responded to any of our questions promptly. We never felt we were just another one of his cases, that he had to refresh his memory on the specific details of the case his recollection was always superb. His investigation, legal knowledge and research were excellent, which, combined with his persistence, were instrumental in achieving the best case scenario outcome (the case never even got to court!). I would highly recommend Mr. Potashnik as he is excellent in his ability to assist a client with their legal needs.

Absolutely the best! Saved my license and my livelihood! Don't even think of any one else. I had retained another lawyer at first, I was told that I will probably have to surrender my license. Then I retained Joseph. Best move I have done in years. I'm serious guys! He's really really amazing!

I called Mr Potashnik’s firm when one day my husband didn’t come home after visiting the local immigration officer and called me to tell he would probably be deported. The thing is he had a charge on his criminal record years ago, he got his punishment, and we forgot about it. But somehow it came up now, when he got married, we had two babies, were about to buy a house and well... were having a life. We were fortunate that Mr Potashnik himself took our case and intervened early enough to turn the tide. It is such a relief! Thank you Joseph once again, I owe you my life!
