I highly recommend Nick Andrea based on his work as opposing counsel in an employment case. Efficient, honest, effective and somebody I would recommend to my friends and clients if they need an attorney with Nick's expertise.

Nick has the two qualities that I'd want in a lawyer. First, he's smart. Second, and perhaps more importantly, I've always regarded Nick as someone who has a genuine concern for people. In short, I see Nick as a lawyer with a conscience, and that goes a long way in my book.
