Client Testimonials

"What can I say about Michael DerGarabedian that has not already been said! All I can do is confirm what everyone knows – he is the best damn lawyer on Long Island. He is the only attorney in Nassau County that is a household name for all the good reasons. I would never hesitate to recommend him to anybody in any circumstance or situation in the legal field. He is well dressed, well spoken, down to earth, open minded and firm. But most importantly he truly takes the time to understand you and your situation in such a personal way that he feels like he is family. He is like a big brother to me and a mentor. I have so much respect for him in and out of the legal field. He has a memory like an elephant. He remembers everything. So when you hear Michael DerGarabedian just think magic because that is what he is called, Super Magic Mike. Super Magic Mike, thank you for giving me back my life, freedom, family and dignity. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts Michael DerGarabedian."


"Michael, just wanted to give a little extra thanks. You saved my life, man, on more than one occasion and I can never repay you enough."


"Nicholas, I thank you for everything you've done for me. I am very grateful to you."


"Mr. DerGarabedian, it has been a few years since you helped me with my son and I always bless you for your kindness and compassion. I never felt like a client. I always felt as if I was a very good friend! Many blessings to you, family and business."


"Recently, I have had the privilege of receiving exceptional attention from Stacy Eves, Esq. regarding the above- referenced violation. This letter is to express my appreciation for the excellent service that she demonstrated in representing your establishment. Ms. Eves is one hundred percent professional, attentive, efficient and diligent. It is most up-lifting communicating with someone as patient, courteous and effective as she; it makes the difference. In today’s competitive market, first- rate representation (i.e. Stacy Eves) is quite valuable. Without reservation Ms. Eves is an asset and a credit to your law firm. I would appreciate it if you give consideration to what I have stated and kindly forward a copy of this letter to her. Thank you."


"Thank you for seeing me Tuesday as I found our short time together allowed me to get to know you a little more personally. I enjoyed our time together and I want to thank you for preserving Vincent’s future with Nicole and Judge Sullivan as I know it was a concerted effort between the three of you. Thanks again and God bless you and your family."


"Nick, My deep gratitude for your professionalism, skill and wise counsel. We deeply appreciate what you have done for us over the years."


"Mike, I am very grateful to know that I have in heaven Jesus Christ as my great spiritual lawyer. However, I thank God for giving me as my legal defense on earth such a great lawyer as you. I have to confess that without God and without you the outcome of my legal situation was going to be horrible and devastating. A great lament. You are more than a legal defense to me. You are a great human being with a great sensibility, ethical, moral and professional principles. You are a role model in the legal profession. You are a great friend to me! For all you have done for me: May God bless you and your family with love, peace and joy, health and long life with material and spiritual blessing: Great lawyer, great friend and great human being."


"Mike, Thank you so much for helping me. It was a very scary process for me to go through and you were really generous and made me feel secure. I appreciate everything you did for me."

"Stacy, I am writing to thank you for providing me with an instant remedy to a potentially volatile matter. As a professional, my reputation and credentials are of extreme importance and must be safeguarded on a daily basis. Without delay, your intervention and assessment of the matter successfully de-escalated a calculated assault on my character that I otherwise could not have managed on my own. You lifted a great weight off my shoulders and for this I am grateful."


"Nick, thank you for your help. You handled the case very well, we appreciate your gentle hand."

"Mike, Greetings after a year in Iraq! I wasn't sure you would be in the office when I came by, so just a note to say thanks to you for looking after the family while I was gone. Of the many kind rescues you provided for the boys, I have to say the one where you left your own house on the weekend on the morning of your own 50th birthday to appear in court last-minute on my son's behalf was one of the most selfless and kind things anyone has done for me and mine in the 22 years of this family. You left the comfort of your home, your family and your well earned birthday adoration to support my family. Incredible!!! I told the story a lot during the past year, so don't be surprised if you overhear it being told by strangers at a neighboring restaurant table one day.

On July 4, 2013, I hoisted a flag over the Consulate General in thanks for your help and support. The shirts and hats are for your boys; I'm very sorry to have intruded on their celebration of your 50th birthday and their time with you. The Latin on two of the shirts "It flies with its own wings" and the unicorn symbolize how little support we received in Erbil from Baghdad, and how they thought it was all rainbows and unicorns up north. In wonderful contrast, I have to thank you again for the sublime serenity you provided me in knowing the family's legal issues had your personal attention.

All the best, Mike. I am at your disposal should I ever be able to help with anything."


"Michael DerGarabedian, Thank you for your patience!! Your effort to easy my anxiety did not go unnoticed. Your firm persuasion to unload this burden on you and your firm was definitely a relief. And while I am still anxious, your reassurance to work hard for Rudy helps me reason with my anxious self and get a better grip."


"Heather, thank you for representing me in my motor vehicle case. I am extremely happy with the way you handled everything and the results. Please be assured that I will have you represent me in the future if I ever need an attorney. I will also recommend you and the office of DerGarabedian, Nathan, Marino & Rodriguez for any legal matters that may arise. Thank you."


"Nick, just wanted to say THANK YOU. You not only represented Eva, but did it as a caring, loving father figure. She and I both slept so well last night knowing this was finally over. I promise to keep in touch and you do the same. You became a good friend and you are ONE HELL OF AN ATTORNEY"


"Heather, I can't thank you enough for all you have done. You are awesome and will always come highly recommended from me."


"Michael DerGarbedian, I cannot put into words how appreciative I am to have met you and for all you have done for Orlando and our family. You and your team have been amazing and you truly are a one of a kind lawyer and person. I would have never been able to help Orlando if you had not been willing to work with us financially. We can never repay you for everything. Special thanks to Rafaela, Jennifer and Jessica for all of your help this past year."

-Lisa, Orlando & Isabelle-

"Michael DerGarabedian, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your help. Thank you for going to see my son and making sure he is okay. You are such and angel and God will bless you for all you do. I just want you to know that my two children are the only thing I have in this country. Anything that is done to them, feels as if it is being done to me. Thank you for helping me relieve this heavy load off my shoulders. God bless you always."


"Michael D, Gregory, Roxanne, Michael A., Joseph and Staff, you guys were more than professional. Thank you so much."

-Donna & Michael-

"Mr. DerGarabedian, I am writing to express my great appreciation to you for accepting my son's case and referring it to Michael Alber. Mr. Alber did more in three days than our prior attorney did in five months! His undying efforts and support were very impressive and appreciated. I cannot put into words how grateful our family is for all of Mr. Alber's time and efforts. We felt that our son was a priority to him. Mr. Alber visited Lonnie regularly, keeping us all updated and he always answered our questions and calls! He was very professional and is truly a credit to the DerGarabedian firm! I also wish to express our thanks to Mr. Philip Tricolla for his efforts and support throughout this trying experience! Again, thank you for all you have done for us. God bless."


"Michael D., Roxanne, Rafaela and Staff, I wanted to write on behalf of my brother Michael and our family, to express our gratitude for the exceptional representation you provided. While it is now up to Michael, without your counsel he would not possibly have had the opportunity to live freely and sober. You truly have made a difference in all of our lives and I also thank you for reaffirming that the system can work."


"Mr. DerGarabedian, it takes a special kind of person to care enough to take the time for others, to do whatever it takes to help somebody out. For everything you have done, for everything you have given, thank you very much. Thank you for delivering more than you promised! I know that I cannot pay you enough for what you have done for my son. However, I believe that all the goodness you have done for my son, will be returned upon your children. Thank you and God Bless."


"Thank you all for all your help and all you've done. May God bless all of you, I could not have gone through these hard times without you. Bless you all."


" I just wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation for your role in the negotiations regarding my case. Your professional expertise was certainly a major factor in processing a settlement. It was pretty obvious that after your initial contact and follow-up that a resolution could be established. I understand that in the scheme of your practice this doesn't come close to the many high profile cases under your tutelage, however, it was very comforting to know that after 4 arduous years of frustration and anxiety, your sensitivity as a friend and confidant were reassuring elements to the completion of an exasperating and apprehensive time in my life. Of course, I also appreciate the confidential manner in which all communique and procedures were processed."


"I have been a police officer for 26 years and have responded to thousands of auto accidents. It was different the day in July of 2009 when I got a call that my 17 year old daughter had been involved in an accident while picking up lunch for her and I. I was in my car and got to the scene in minutes. When I got to the scene and saw the two ambulances and my daughter's car, I was panicked. My daughter was taken from the scene by ambulance and thankfully her injury was not too serious. However, the no-fault paperwork that followed was both confusing and overwhelming. That is when I called the office of Heather Nathan. My daughter and I met with Heather and were immediately set at ease by her friendly and professional demeanor. We left the office that day feeling like a weight had been lifted off our shoulders. From that point on, Heather and her assistant Lori, kept in close contact with us and answered all our questions. They handled all the paperwork throughout my daughter's treatment and she made a full recovery. Our case was settled quickly and helped my daughter pay for another car. I have since referred several people with confidence to Heather Nathan's office. Thank you Heather and Lori for being there for us."


"What we needed right from the beginning, when our son got arrested, was someone who took control and guided us thru those unchartered waters...thankfully we found Michael! I will recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer."


"There are a lot of people who say "you have to speak to my attorney". Trust me when I say, YOU HAVE TO SPEAK TO MIKE! He is down to Earth, tough as nails and as straight as an arrow. "


"I owe Michael so much. My son doesn’t do drugs any more. He works and stays out of trouble. Michael could have just represented him but, instead, he coached him. I will never forget the kindness and goodness Michael showed me when I was at my lowest point in my life. He is a special person, a brilliant lawyer and a compassionate, wonderful human being."


"I love Michael for who he is and for what he has done for my family!"


"If every lawyer was like Michael, Shakespeare would have said, "First thing we do is buy all the lawyers a beer"


"I went through three attorneys, nobody wanted my accident case. Michael took the case and personally returned every one of my telephone calls quickly. I know he handles million dollars case… and I knew mine was not one of those cases…. But you couldn’t tell by the way Michael treated me. He is my lawyer for life."


"Michael’s law firm was the product of him hand picking attorneys throughout the past twenty years. When you hire him for a criminal matter or accident case, you really do get a great team. They are professionals in every aspect."

-Ahmad -

"My gratitude for Michael and his professionalism is beyond measure. He put forward his very best effort to save me from losing my future and it worked. I will never take advantage of my civil liberties again. Thank you for fighting for me. Thank you for trusting me and thank you for giving me your compassion."


"If you ever need a good attorney for an accident, I suggest you call DerGarabedian, Nathan, Marino & Rodriguez and speak with Heather Nathan. She is very courteous and will do her best to help you. Go Heather Go!"


"When my son Adam was injured on January 22, 2007, I really did not know where to turn. DerGarabedian, Nathan, Marino & Rodriguez handled everything. Lori and Heather answered my questions and walked with me through the whole process. I found the firm to be professional, competent and sensitive to our needs and I was never made to feel that any concern of ours was insignificant. I would strongly recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal representation. Thank you for everything."


"DerGarabedian, Nathan, Marino & Rodriguez took my case and did an excellent job. I am very satisfied and I will recommend people to their office."


"First, I would like to thank you for accepting me as a client. Before I called seeking new representation, my previous attorney led me to believe that I had no case and was basically leading me to a dead end road as if he was an attorney against me. But when you took over my case, I saw the dedication and love that you put into your work and also your best interest for me, your client. I didn’t even have to speak to you that much and I knew I was in good hands. Thanks for putting forth your best effort while representing me. I am grateful for what I received and very appreciative. Most of all, I am grateful and appreciative for you, Heather, Lori and DerGarabedian, Nathan, Marino & Rodriguez for showing your willingness and best interest for others. I will highly recommend you when someone has the need in the future. Thanks again."


"I have used the office of DerGarabedian, Nathan, Marino & Rodriguez specifically Heather Nathan. I find her to be professional, diligent, helpful and most of all, she won my case which was a difficult one and she got me the money I deserved. I am very thankful to her for that."


"Having you and the team working on my side provided me with a sense of comfort. Throughout my case, I was kept well informed and my questions or concerns were always met with patience and understanding. Thank you for the kindness and peace of mind you and your team provided."
