    I was looking for an attorney on the internet and I found Mr. Portela. Once I found it. I immediately gave him a phone call that day. One of his representatives picked the phone up and I told that I was looking for a defense attorney that I could defense me on my next hear date because I was looking for a very experienced attorney. Otherwise, I would be looked for several years. In addition, my life would also be ruining. During the date of the hearing Mr. Portella and I showed up to the court and he didn’t what he had to do which was to convince the judge. Minutes later, he got out to the courtroom and he told me that I have news for you Barry. I responded politely what is it. He told me that my case was dismissed.

  • He was always on time and straights to the point he tells you what's going on and is always positive even when things looked very bad.
    I have never ever written a review on anything before but my lawyer Manuel Portela did an excellent job on my case, I just had to share with everyone. Mr. Portela was very professional in and out of the courtroom. He was always on time and straights to the point he tells you what's going on and is always positive even when things looked very bad. I was wrongfully accused of a crime I didn't do and was in jail for a week already with a 50 thousand dollar bail before my family reached out to Mr Portela. He immediately began working on my release a week later my bail was lifted and I was released. When we returned to court my case was dismissed I was so happy and relieved I wouldn't ever want no one to be in my shoes but if you happen to find your self in a sticky situation like mine Mr. Portela is who you want working your case thanks, Mr. Portela.

  • He is a reputable, extremely professional, exceptionally knowledgeable and very attentive attorney.

    In response to the person based in Yonkers, NY who posted anonymously with the header “NO STARS IF I COULD.” I am based in Yonkers, NY and hired Mr. Portela who is currently representing my son in law in Yonker’s court. My son in law’s court hearing was scheduled for January 4th, 2017. I am aware and have confirmed with Mr. Portela that my son in law’s case is the ONLY case that he is working on out of Yonkers court at the present time. Most of his current cases are based out of NYC courts. Mr. Portela has ALWAYS appeared to the court hearings. He is a reputable, extremely professional, exceptionally knowledgeable and very attentive attorney. On JANUARY 4, 2018 Governor Cuomo Declared a State of Emergency Across New York City, Long Island and Westchester County. Due to the snowstorm. Yonkers ended up getting 10 inches of snow. Thereby, the January 4th hearing was rescheduled by the court. It is astonishing to me that someone would actually take the time to ANONYMOUSLY write such a false, disparaging and hateful review. I can attest firsthand, that the review is completely false. My only conclusion is that either the review was intended for another attorney. Due to the fact that I am the ONLY person who hired Mr. Portela out of Yonkers, NY or it may have been erroneously written in Mr. Portela’s page.

  • Your insight, perseverance, and guidance towards Dario's case was truly remarkable.

    I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the outstanding work you and your staff did for my son, Dario Matos. Words cannot give my appreciation justice. You in combination with your staff, down to and including Bruni, were superbly efficient, professional and compassionate. Mr. Asaf's dedication and hard work were unremarkable. He was focused, driven and sensitive to our needs at all times. Bruni's patience, warmness, and empathy gave me and my family the security and confidence that we were lacking in a time of much need. Your insight, perseverance, and guidance towards Dario's case was truly remarkable.

    It goes without saying that I will always refer to your firm if the need ever arises.

    Once again my heartfelt thanks.

  • l. Mr. Portela isn't merely a good lawyer, he's a stand up guy. The support staff at the firm isn't just competent, they're extraordinary.
    I had a great experience with the Portela Law Firm as an Intern a couple of summers back. Mr. Portela let me assist with all aspects of Litigation nearly every morning in just about every state and Federal court in this town. The procedural knowledge that I picked up here complimented by intellectual background and knowledge as a College Student. After finishing up, I landed a Government job as a Paralegal for the City. another as a RICO Unit Paralegal with good pay at an off Wall Street Medical Malpractice firm, and gained acceptance to several law schools, and scholarship offers at a few. I'm set to start this fall. Mr. Portela isn't merely a good lawyer, he's a stand up guy. The support staff at the firm isn't just competent, they're extraordinary. After two years in the legal industry post graduation, this is by far the best work environment I have had the privilege to be a part of. For clients especially, the individual care and attention the Firm devotes to every one of its clients seems, to me, the embodiment of zealous representation. I can't recommend them highly enough.

  • Manuel Portela did an excellent job on my case
    I have never ever written a review on any thing before but my lawyer Manuel Portela did an excellent job on my case, I just had to share with very one. Mr Portela was very professional in and out the court room. He was always on time and straights to the point he tells you what's going on and is always positive even when things looked very bad. I was wrongfully accused of a crime I didn't do and was in jail for a week already with a 50 thousand dollar bail before my family reached out to Mr Portela. He immediately began working on my release a week later my bail was lifted and I was released. When we returned to court my case was dismissed I was so happy and relieved I wouldn't ever want no one to be in my shoes but if you happen to find your self in a sticky situation like mine Mr Portela is who you want working your case thanks Mr Portela your client JQ

  • Mr. Portela came to our rescue. I am very pleased with his services.
    A Brooklyn Landlord refused to renew a rent-stabilized tenant's lease based on the Landlord's allegation that the Tenant, a resident of 37 years, and her daughter were not occupying the subject premises as their primary residence. After trial the court dismissed the Landlord's case with prejudice and concluded that the Petitioner did not meet his burden of proof by a preponderance of the evidence that the Tenant failed to maintain a physical nexus at the subject residence that was ongoing and substantial. "I am thrilled and excited with the court's decision to dismiss my Landlord's suit. Mr. Portela came to our rescue. I am very pleased with his services, and I don't think anyone else would have provided better representation. Thank you.

  • Little or no prospect of winning, the Portela Law Firm undertook to represent me
    When others turned down me down as a case with little or no prospect of winning, the Portela Law Firm undertook to represent me winning the case for me. Can I say more?
