    I have known Rebecca Nitkin for years and have referred numerous happy clients to her. She is devoted to all her clients, works very hard and does a great job. In addition, she has a lot of compassion for people, which helps her in being a terrific lawyer. I would strongly endorse her for anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney.
