More than four years ago I was being investigated by the federal government for tax fraud. I was scared with thoughts of a lengthy prison term. I was so lucky to find NiaLena. I had never needed a criminal attorney and had no idea where to start. Our family put in a call to our business attorney and he referred us to his colleague NiaLena. From there it was unbelievable. She knew the exact words to say, when to say them and how to say them. She tells you the honest truth. No spinning. She gave me the courage and hope to push forward in my case and my life. She became knowledgable of every detail in my life. When NiaLena says something will be done, it gets done. She guided me through what I needed to do for the best possible outcome in my case......I'm so grateful to know her as an attorney and a friend. All I can say to you is if you want to save your life and change your life you must hire NiaLena. I was lucky. I found the best right away without even knowing it. Hopefully this review will give you an opportunity to have a meaningful, caring, and courageous attorney by your side. I went from facing possibly decades of incarceration to facing only months. Sometimes life points you in the right direction when you aren't even using a road map. Before you hire an attorney give NiaLena a call. You will find a respected advocate who knows her stuff. And have no fear because she is fearless in the pursuit of the best possible outcome for her client no matter what the circumstances may be. And believe me when I say the impossible can become possible by hiring NiaLena.

Even though I am unable to afford NiaLena's representation, I found her insight and customer service to be unparalleled. I sought a consultation with her and even though I am not her client, she returned every single message and email within hours.....not days. Her compassion, knowledge, straight-forward approach, and honesty left me feeling less anxious about the matter I am facing. She is truly a rare, sparkling gem in an otherwise muddy field. I highly recommend her to anyone facing federal charges or investigation.

The impact NiaLena has had on my life has compelled me to write a review of this outstanding woman. I was indicted by the federal government for a crime that involved online pharmacy. Of course I chose NiaLena to represent me because of her numerous accomplishments and accolades, and thought that I had the best chance at a favorable outcome of this case. However, as I became more associated with NiaLena I discovered that she represented more than just facts about the law and ways to objectively improve my disposition in my case. She reflected abundant love and ardor for my case than expected. NiaLena was extremely responsible in making sure that all the information was dissected involving the case and my life. Furthermore, her meticulousness involved knowing almost every detail of my life so that she could provide the best representation possible for my case. She made it possible to always be in contact with me weekly to analyze different possibilities in handling my case.
As she delved more into my case and life, she requested that I see a psychiatrist. She detected that I may have a personality disorder that needed to be investigated. Interestingly, I did not see myself as having a problem. I accomplished many things in my life to this point, including obtaining a medical degree. I had psychiatric testing which revealed that I had impulse control disorder. As we investigated and managed this issue further, I found it to be of great value. She made it her purpose to repeatedly speak to my psychologist and psychiatrist about our progress. I discovered that this was a prodigious reason why I made many of the careless decisions in my life, including those decisions I made that got me involved with this case. I found myself discovering a new person that I never knew – one with a different outlook on life, and a sincere desire to be a better individual.
Fortunately, the outcome of my case was very favorable. Nevertheless, despite the outcome, I am happy to say that I sincerely value NiaLena as a dear friend to me. To sum it up, NiaLena is an attorney with tremendous love and passion for her profession and clients. Although her track record is well-known to many who observe, I can see why she is so successful.

When I faced the prospect of losing my life to the criminal justice system, I began a journey on discovering who I was and more importantly who I was not. I chose NiaLena as my legal advocate because of her abilities and reputation and credentials, but little did I know that she would speak into my life things I didn't even believe of myself and convey to me a message of hope and belief in me and in who I can become. This made such an impact on me that it began the baby steps to changing my attitude and perspective towards life. I didn't realize at the time that NiaLena had a vision for me that I couldn't see myself. She may not have purposely thought out my future, but she saw potential. She may not have known the details, but she began pointing me in the right direction and exposing me to ideas that challenged me to set goals for myself for the first time in my life. Not only did she save my life in the case, but she went far beyond her professional obligations in her efforts to get me to see that I could actually make something of my life. None of this could have ever taken place had it not been for NiaLena urging me to consider another way of life. In the words of Ara Parseghian, Notre Dame's football coach, "A good coach will make his players see what they can be rather than what they are" and this is exactly what NiaLena has accomplished with me. I will always be grateful to her for the impact she has had on my life. She fought to give me my life back and showed me the way to make it really count for something.

After only one email correspondence I have a new realization on how one person can have such an impact on my life and leave me wanting to be a better person.
I made some poor decisions and found myself facing serious consequences. As a person who had never been in real trouble I panicked, especially after I had contacted numerous local “small town” lawyers outside of Phila. and not received one response I reached out to Ms. NiaLena Carvasos. Not having any prior knowledge about her background and stellar reputation I contacted the person I found at the top of the Super Lawyer list. I filled out the contact form quickly on a whim with a certainty that it would go nowhere seeing the high level of the lawyer I was sending my inquiry to. It was 4am and I was basically passing time to ease my mind for the idea of sleep was not an option. To my most sincere surprise I received an email the very next day, some 10 hours later from Ms. Carvasos herself, (not an assistant or colleague). She informed me that she was on vacation in Europe but asked me to provide more information so she could help me. Blown away but now filled with hope and a positive outlook after seeing her response I responded to her with more details per her request. From there she again responded quickly (again while on her European vacation) and the rest is history and much needed life lesson.
Today I’m sitting at my dining room table instead of in a jail cell writing this letter of gratitude and appreciation. I am grateful for the respect and attention NiaLena showed me. She showed me such respect even though I realistically was requesting help from an attorney who was frankly out of my league and to be honest had no shot at being able to afford. She too no doubt was aware of these two factors yet the outcome remained the same, she chose to help me and spoke to me the same way I feel she would speak to a CEO from a Fortune 500 corporation. After only a few email correspondences I have a new realization on how one person can have such an impact on my life and leave me wanting to be a better person. From this life experience I had a chance to see how someone can choose to live their life and to what level and standard of integrity they can hold. From this brief experience with NiaLena I have chosen to follow by her example for the benefit of anyone in and out of my life in my future but more importantly for myself. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Carvasos for giving me the desire to strive to hold a greater standard when it comes to personal integrity and morals to live by.
With my most sincere gratitude.

If I had to review NiaLena Caravasos as a lawyer, I would have to say that she is SUPER. Whenever I had questions about my case, she answered them. She didn't tell me that she would have to get back to me and then later spin me with I forgot! She did what she told me she was going to do for me. I rate her EXCELLENT in all categories. She earned by trust and kept it. She kept me informed through all of the stages of the case. She was prepared for trial ahead of time. She knew what the stakes for me were and didn’t sugarcoat anything. If there was a next time, I’d want NiaLena beside me again. In talking to some of my fellow federal defendants, they wish that they had a lawyer like her on their side. She is one lawyer the others should look up to because she sets the standard high.

I first met Niaelena about 15years ago. I was arrested at age17. My family hired Emmett Fitzpatrick and Nialena Caravasos. Nialena was just begining her legal career. She was always available to me and my family for any questions and comments. She never came across as if we were interrupting her from something more important. But what was truly humblingto me was the willingness of Nialena to befriend a kid (me) who in his own eyes was a loss cause at the time. During the years Nialena has become a mentor encouraging me to finish school and even taking up business courses from Penn State. She has shown me what is to be dependable,trustworthy,honest,caring and hard working by her example. I once heard someone say "Life isn't measured in minutes it's measured in moments" One of those moments for me was meeting Nialena. Thank you, Nialena

The following words cannot truly express my gratitude to NiaLena. She has been there for me from the beginning has a friend and a source of hope in those difficult times through my ordeal. NiaLena is not your typical attorney she will go well beyond her professional mandate and help you as a person. She will defend your rights and protect you when the prosecution attempts to exploit your weaknesses. The only positive thing that came from this bad experience was meeting NiaLena, Believe me you want her on your side.

When I was first brought up on charges from both the state and the federal government, it was the most hectic and terrifying time in my life. When being in a situation that can change your life forever, it is very easy to be disoriented and make poor decisions. Well I got lucky. I chose NiaLena. Through her long list of connections and her superiority as a lawyer, she relentlessly pursued my freedom. She fought night and day until she knew I received my liberties. Fighting the prosecution like a rabid pitbull, I couldn't help but notice this wonderful woman really cares about me. Not just because of common interest but because she sees me as a person and not a criminal. That was also undoubtedly one of her strongest weapons in the courtroom. She got the judge to actually see a man and not some mindless criminal. Through the long process of fighting for my life, because of NiaLena the ending mirrored that of a fairytale and not a tragedy. I cannot stress enough how strongly I feel about NiaLena and her skills as a lawyer and how wonderful a person she is. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to get their life back.

I was facing several serious Federal Charges. I am the former CEO of my company and not a young man. My case was very complicated and took a long time to be resolved. NiaLena was available to me 24/7 not 24/5, during the entire process. It never got old to her. Every decision she made was dead on, skillfully crafting my case to a very positive outcome ...more that I ever hoped for! She tamed the beast of a system that could have ended my life in prision. She made the judge see me for the man I am and not just the criminal I was on paper. The prosecutor was pretty decent to me because of her and the professional way she handled my case. I now have my life back. Looking back, the best decision I made in this mess was choosing NiaLena as my attorney!
