    Hired attorney

    This is not a review from legal rep. from Nancy but I would like to say that I have seen and heard nothing but good feedback on the internet and from people about Nancy. I am currently in need of a lawyer for my workers comp case and I am proud to say I will most likely be hiring Nancy for legal rep. I will be contacting her ASAP.

    I was very pleased with this law firm and would suggest you use this firm. She was very strong but not overly aggressive. She knows the law and tells you what will happen. She will also maintain your rights and not let the court step over the line.

    She was very polite but very firm with the court when they stepped over the line.

    Posted by a Workers Compensation client

    I hired Attorney Eraca in 2011 to help me with a very complicated Workers' Compensation case. I would highly recommend her on the basis that she was not only very knowledgable regarding the issues at hand, she was also very compassionate and kind in answering my questions and concerns regarding my case.

    I hired Attorney Eraca to represent me in a traffic matter during my probationary period when I was in danger of losing my driving privledges. She kindly kept me informed of the process and even went as far as to let me know what I could expect in the future if my driving habits did not change.

    Posted by a Divorce client

    Attorney Eraca talks a big game but her attention to detail and lack of follow through are questionable. Over $12,000 spent on a divorce. She promised the world in a case involving tremendous abuse but did little in terms of potential witnesses she could have had involved. She failed to include several details in the final trial which resulted in significant problems with the final decree and how it impacted visitation for my children. She held a single mother hostage requiring post-dated checks for payment despite knowing that money wasn't available and said she was sure I'd get paid then when I didn't cashed the post-dated checks anyway. Bottom line is she promised the world up front and an ex-husband with multiple restraining orders and a history of criminal abuse retained joint custody as well as failing to get any temporary hearings or orders established or accomplished during the year the case went on with no child support being paid. Big mistake that has left me requiring further legal assistance just to escape the wrath of ex-husbands abuse to myself and children. Careless representation. I wouldn't go near her - she's too busy and her greed trumps her dedication to her clients.

    Nancy M. Eraca’s response: “I am very sorry that this person left my office having had a negative experience. I strive to ensure during my tenure as a retained counsel (whether or not I am the first, second, third, fourth, or even the fifth attorney in the matter) to meet my client's expectations and goals using legally admissible evidence. Clearly, she was frustrated by her situation and I am sorry that she did not understand that my fees are based on my extensive experience and not a client's status as a single mother. I am also a single mother of three and while I understand her plight, I am not able to represent people without expectation of compensation for my time, efforts, and experience. I never promise "the world" to anyone as I do not have a crystal ball to predict the future. It is unfortunate that this person thought otherwise. Lastly, I provide zealous, aggressive, and competent representation to those people who retain me to represent them. My experience speaks for itself. My office is not a joke nor do we take our client's concerns, questions, or matters lightly!”

    One of the most competent defense lawyers I've ever met, Nancy knew exactly how to handle my case and what would give me the best chances. She was a tremendous help. What impressed me most was her depth of knowledge and her calm, collected and serious demeanor that reflected everything I would be looking for in an experienced and highly professional lawyer such as herself. I would recommend her to anyone seeking legal advice or help, you can't go wrong with Nancy Eraca.

    My case involved theft of funds and materials by my contractor. Took a good 2 weeks to get an appt since she only consults with her assistant and the assistant is only available twice a week I believe. Go figure why ! I have extensive experience in litigation matters being a Project and Business Consultant and a Licensed Real Estate Broker with my own company. I send them a concise one page summary of the case prior to the meeting. So we start the meeting and neither of them has even bothered to read the one page summary. I point them to that summary and they still seem lost. So I hand hold them through the summary. The assistant points out that the contract is unenforceable since it does not comply with sec 36A of the NY state business law. So I ask him to be more specific. He says the contract does not have a start and finish date, It's a simple one and half page document and I not only point out the dates but I also point out the delay damages clause to him. The he says that the contract should have an escrow requirement. Again I point out to him that there were no advance payments so the escrow requirement is moot and even if there was one it should be the contractors responsibility. Then he says that there are various other provisions and he doesn't remember them but he is pretty sure that this contract will not be enforceable. Obviously he could have referred to the law which would have only taken a few minutes. But given that he wouldn't/ couldnt even understand a simple one and a half page contract that would be a gargantuan task for him. We are now about 15 minutes into the meeting. I tell him that I find it hard to believe that most contracts would comply with all these provisions and not be enforceable for technicalities when it substantially complies. I tell them that i will do my own checking and get back to them. Its a simple civil matter with about 20000 of damages. She refuses to spend any of her time without a ridiculous 10000 retainer. I consult 2 other attorneys one of them being an AV rated attorney and they validate my opinion. They said that these laws are meant for consumer protection and the fact that I substantially complied and that I was the owner and not the contractor that it would be enforeceable. They also could not find any case law to support the contrary. In summary to say that these attorneys were careless, flippant and incompetent would be giving them a compliment. They were a JOKE !!

    Nancy M. Eraca’s response: “I am very sorry that this person left my office having had a negative experience. I strive to provide potential clients in a short period of time (in this instance --30 minute free consultation) with information so that they can make an informed decision before retaining my services. Initial consultations are designed to get to know one another in order to see whether we are able to meet each other's expectations and goals. They are not intended to provide a comprehensive legal analysis regarding a particular issue. That would be an impossible feat in 30 minutes! Again, this person did not retain me to represent her. She had a free 30 minute consultation. Clearly, she was frustrated by her situation and I am sorry that she did not understand that the purpose of a consultation is not to provide extensive legal advise on a complicated legal matter despite her "extensive experience in litigation matters." Lastly, I provide zealous, aggressive, and competent representation to those people who retain me to represent them. My experience speaks for itself. My office is not a joke nor do we take our client's concerns, questions, or matters lightly!”

    Nancy was always available to answer my questions. She went above and beyond what I expected to obtain my release from jail.
