Client REviews


To Whom It May Concern,

I recently retained Alessandra DeBlasio to represent me in preparing an appeal to reverse a medical malpractice verdict. Initially, she briefly reviewed my materials and presented me with her preliminary insights which turned out to be both accurate and successful. As we proceeded with the case, Ms. DeBlasio carefully explored the legal and medical facts with me to maximize her understanding of the case. I was pleased with her interest and skill in understanding the medical nuances. Ms. DeBlasio made herself available whenever I needed her advice. She was supportive and aware of the emotional challenges for me as the client in a lawsuit which attacked my personal reputation. She was optimistic but always realistic in preparing me for both success and defeat. In our earliest discussions, she demonstrated her impressive ability to analyze the case, extract the critical information, and design a compelling appeal. At each step, she was a thorough, supportive, and pleasant partner in the effort. Ms. DeBlasio is clearly very intelligent, organized, and effective. She is also efficient and adheres to her proposed schedule. I was impressed with her strong work ethic and professionalism. She is very articulate and her legal writing is outstanding. Ms. DeBlasio prepared and presented an appellate brief which was exceptional. Her writing is analytical, powerful, and convincing. In the end, her skillful appeal was able to win a reversal of the verdict against me by the unanimous decision of a panel of five judges. I have the highest regard for Ms. DeBlasio and can recommend her without reservation.




Alessandra is the consummate trial attorney. Prepared. Tenacious. Indefatigable. And preternaturally unflappable under pressure.  Equally at home digging in to the hard work of factual development to uncover the real story as delivering a final summation, Alessandra has the rare mastery of nuanced legal argument combined with equal facility of bringing home its significance to a jury.  When you need an advocate, count on Alessandra to level the playing field.

I am a Colombian citizen, and I am a resident of the United States of America. In 2009, I was captured by D.E.A federal agents to be prosecuted in a federal court in New York, charged with conspiracy to import, export and distribute illegal drugs and money laundering for up to USD$ 100 million.

My situation could not be worse, and I believed that retaining the services of a famous lawyer, a defendant of other Colombians with similar charges, was the solution.

Making that decision meant taking risks, not only in terms of money, but other issues within the legal process, which did not result in any agreement with the American government or even a fair trial.

My process got stuck and started to get more and more complicated. So, I looked for a different lawyer until I met Dr. Alessandra DeBlasio, who visited me at the ‘special housing unit’ (SHU), where I was locked down for more than a year.

Dr. DeBlasio, after hearing and analyzing my case, made the American government change the charges; made the prison management transfer me to the general prison wing; created an environment of credibility and trust around my case, which ended with a plea agreement; achieved in a studious, strategic and professional way that the judge sentenced me to 36 months instead of 10 years or even life.

She did not stop there. She put a stop to the deportation process by Customs ICE, and went back to the Judge to ask for a resentence that was successfully granted to only 11 months.

Had it not been for Dr. DeBlasio’s experience and knowledge of Law in processes like mine, I would have been still in prison.

Today, I happily live with my wife and children, enjoying that precious right called FREEDOM! Thank you very much, Dr. Alessandra.

I fall short of words to express my gratitude and experience working with Alessandra DeBlasio. She was heaven sent to rescue me from the nightmare I was living. When my appointed attorney by court told me I had no other choice but to settle for a felony conviction from the U.S. Federal government that I was not guilty for, my whole world came tumbling down. I was terrified, hopeless and devastated. That's when Ms. DeBlasio stepped in, took my case and changed everything. She cleaned up what was left behind, believed in me and gave me back hope. With dedication, hard work and superb skills we won, the government dismissed the indictment against me! I got what I wanted and undoubtedly deserved. 

Overall I can attest that Ms. DeBlasio was always there to answer all my questions and give me advice. She was comforting, understanding and accessible at all times when I needed her to be. We communicated via phone or emails and her response was prompt. I felt she was more than my attorney, she was my friend. 

Forever grateful, 
Arlette Hernandez


U.S.  v. Grenier

Dear Alessandra,

I wanted to tell everybody that you are a great lawyer. You were so professional. I discovered a woman who gave all the time, attention and devotion to my case. I could not find a better lawyer to represent me. I received a lower sentence because of you and I am grateful for that. 1000x thanks Alessandra.

Chère Mme DeBlasio,
Je tenais a dire au monde entier comment tu es une grande avocate. Tu as été d’un professionalisme exceptionnelle. En plus de découvrir une femme attentionnée gentille et dévouée, je n’aurais pu trouvé mieux pour me représenter. Encore un gros merci pour l’aide, le support et de m’avoir eu plus bas que mon Guideline. 1000x merci.

U.S. v. Torres

Hi my name is Victor Torres, and I would like to say some words about Alessandra DeBlasio. I met Ms. DeBlasio sometime in June of 2015, one of the inmate that was in the Metropolitan Detention Center in New York told me about her, telling me that she was a really really good attorney.

I was been charged with conspiracy to distribute heroin in New York. When I plea guilty my guideline was 140-175 because of my record. She did a lot to bring me down from category 5 to 4, she also took down points from 32 to 25. So I ended up was 25 and in category 4 which is 84-105 months. And then she fought for me to get a sentence even below 84 months.

When I finally got sentence we both got the best end of it because with all the hard work she did, they sentence me to 48 months. So in my own words if anyone need a really really good attorney she is one of the best in New York. Mi familia tambien está agradecida con Usted porque personas como Usted no hay muchas porque Usted tomó su tiempo y se dedicó a mi para salir lo mas pronto de aqui. Espero que mi padre Dios me la proteja a Usted.


U.S. V Castillo

Alessandra DeBlasio,

You are an excellent professional, I am very grateful to GOD for having allowed you to be my defense attorney in this case, when they extradited me to this country with a possible sentence as high as I had I said only to GOD that he send me a lawyer and HE made no mistake with you, because you did a great job in my defense and I am grateful for the sentence that the judge gave me, I know that in their hands there was a longer sentence but thanks to the wisdom GOD put in you, my sentence was the lowest that they could have given me, thank you because you treated me in such a way that you gained my confidence, you gave me security and made a psychological evaluation which made me realize things I did not understand about my life and that taught me to have a new perspective on my life, you do not know how much I thank you for all you did with me during my defense, in truth apart from being a good lawyer you are a great woman, because you defend your clients as if they were a part of your family, you have a big heart and I know that just as for me you will continue helping all your clients and you will do so with loyalty and justice, go forward with your career because you are very good in what you do, that GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS.

U.S.  v. Liriano

The purpose of this formal letter is to inform anyone that comes in direct contact with Ms. DeBlasio that she is the best attorney money can pay for. I personally can vouch to it. What she did for me inside the courts as well as outside of court is priceless. Here I am a career offender with multiple arrests over the period of 22 years. I was facing a recommended 188-235 months imprisonment, and Alessandra was able to go forward and stand up for what she believed in (Me). She stood up against one of the toughest judges in the Eastern district of New York and was able to get me only a mere 72 months.

Her willingness, determination to fight for me is priceless. She took the time to visit me at MDC a lot, she kept me posted on my case, she emailed regularly, accepted my phone calls and even when I was down and thinking the worst she would uplift me like a mother would do for her child. So if youre thinking about hiring her dont think twice. Do it there is no money in the world worth having to sit in a jail cell just bc youre thinking about saving it.

I Miguel Liriano am happy that I received 72 months rather than 188 months. I remember like it was yesterday and the bailiffs were gambling with one another that I would get 12-15 years and Alessandra got me 72 months. I have a chance to be able to raise my daughter who will be 5 next year. And even today as I sit here she stands by my side. This woman I love dearly like she was my Mom, my guardian Angel.

Miguel Liriano.
