    I have been blessed by finding a professional, diligent, hard working and genuinely caring attorney Nico Vitale P.A.. I hired Nico in 2005 for the first time for a very sticky and scary (to me) legal issue. He resolved my issue so quickly and thoroughly; using all applicable laws with such intelligence and finesse, without haste or any waste of the courts time; as I have personally witnessed prior attorneys I have known to do.
    Nico had my case resolved in less than 2 weeks, and I was so amazed at his work and his approachability I was speechless. Nico goes far beyond what he as an attorney has to do. He takes that extra step as to keep you informed of all processes, what they mean and why he is using them. I was so scared about my case. After consulting with him within the first 10 minutes of a first call he educated me about what he would do and put all fears to rest. He consistently kept me up to date. Anytime I had a question or several, throughout that process I called him; and each and every single call, if he was in the office, I was immediately given the answer or if he wasn't at the office, he would immediately call me with the answer(s) to my inquiries. Nico would call me back each time without hesitancy within the same day. I was sure I was driving him crazy by all of my calls and questions, yet most graciously and compassionately, he took as much time with me as I needed to help me understand each process that happened during that time. As a soon to be law student, I have learned that the biggest mistake attorneys make is not being available for their clients and notoriously known for not returning calls in a timely fashion. Nico was not anywhere near this "type" of man, rather he superseded all of my previous notions of how any attorney could ever be. To me having had contact with dozens of attorneys from my schooling and otherwise, Nico is the epitome of what a picture perfect, too good to be real (but is real), passionate and truly sincere attorney of our what legal system is supposed to be. He treats you as if you are his own family and I will always refer anyone needing help with a legal issue, directly to him without a second of thought. My next review will shortly follow this one as I have hired Nico once again this past July 2013.

    • I recommend Nico Vitale.
    • I hired Nico 1-3 years ago.
    • Nico handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    The tile of this reveiw is the ultimate attorney because just as well Nico was place in my life by Christ I also believe I was placed in his life because our chemistry work well together. I had him for an attorney in2008
    for me and my husband. Nico is the type of attorney thats goes over the call of duty,he wrrote motions after motions to get some charges dropped for my husband and myself. Nico is also my attornery and always will be. Ive just got off probation because of a motion that he wrote to terminate early, it was granted. Nico has a unique strategy on finding ways to get charges dropped or cases suppressed. Im eternally grateful for all his hard work. Especially keeping my family together.

    • I do not recommend Nico Vitale.
    • I hired Nico more than 3 years ago.
    • Nico handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    This is the most arrogant and irresponsible lawyer I have ever seen. He has spoken rudely to his client, the clients family and loved ones. Told his client "everyone knows your not innocent" and " I only have to do the state minimum in defending you." He let his client rot in jail over 8 months before filing any kind of motion only to withdraw it with no real reason as I watched him be chummy with the state attorney. Isn't this the enemy? I thought they were planning a vacation together. Only further shows his lack of seriousness, aggressiveness and diligence for his clients and also shows the perfect example of Collier county corruption and good ol boy politics. He NEVER once visited his client in jail to discuss in detail his case, options, or advice. Never did any investigation into the case at all such as looking at the crime scene, missing witnesses that favored his clients innocence etc. Bottom line in my opinion this attorney has no morals, is lazy, pompous , and is a huge risk for anyone to depend on based on my experience with this person.

    • I do not recommend Nico Vitale.
    • I hired Nico more than 3 years ago.
    • Nico handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Unless you have money this lawyer will do nothing for you. My brother currently has him through regional council and this means hes appointed by the court to defend my brother, key word "defend". However in the approximately 8 months he has been appointed he has seen and/or discussed my brothers case with him once. continues to sign away his right to speedy trial although my brother says not to. In all this time not one motion, challenge, etc has been filed. The state has ZERO evidence and he refuses to push the state to make its case and lets my brother rot in jail while making the comment to my brother when he tries to communicate to Nico "Its not like Im getting paid for this". This says alot about this mans morals and character. Usually when someone goes into defense law its with the idea of doing whats right and helping innocent people, but clearly such men as this are in it for different self gratifying reasons. So be warned from our family's experience this lawyer is arrogant, unresponsive, morally bankrupt, and all about the money.
