  • Mark Anthony Cosentino

    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.
