We brought our evidence to Mr. Vrataric to pursue retaliation. Throughout the entire span of our case, we felt Mr. Vrataric and his team gave us their full support. If we e-mailed or called with a question or concern, they always got back to us in a timely manner. They would also answer all of our questions and explain the next course of action without making us feel rushed from the phone or that we were interrupting their day. We felt they had expert knowledge of the labor laws and were fully prepared to deal with any intimidation or shenanigans from the other party. Our case had us on an emotional roller coaster for two and a half years. The legal process was something that we were assured in our belief of and terrified to pursue, but, relieved it's finally over. We are very satisfied with the advice we received from everyone involved as well as the outcome of our case. We have nothing but gratitude for every minute this firm spent building and finalizing this period in our lives. Thank you so much.

Having worked for an entity for almost 25 years and having been recognized as an exemplary employee, imagine my surprise when the entity tried to slander my name, allege that I had done things improperly, and tried to indicate that I was an untrustworthy member of senior management.
I quickly called Nico as I had heard of him from other people. He listened to my explanation of what happened, gathered some additional information, and then began the process of suing the entity for their violations.
Throughout the entire process, Nico kept me abreast of what was happening, either by phone or email, and made sure that I knew what was going on every step of the way. I liked the way he processed things relating to my case, never wavering from the truth of my case or what it meant for me to be vindicated. Nico assured me and comforted me when needed, and advised me to stay the course. Whenever I thought the case wasn't moving forward fast enough, he got on the phone immediately and explained the process. There was no delay in my case on his part.
When it came time for depositions, Nico tore them apart. He made the opposition look like idiots. Their stance initially was to stall and hope that I would go away. Once he was done with the depositions, the opposing side changed their tune and began the process of settlement. That, to me, was a victory in and of itself.
When it came time to settlement, Nico stuck to my requests and advised the opposition that we weren't going to budge. He ground them down to the point where they gave in. He wore at them so much they finally decided to settle the case and move on. To me, this was also another victory that I relish to this day.
The case has been settled for a while now. Nico still calls to check up on me and to see how I am doing. I wouldn't be doing as well as I am if it weren't for him. I can honestly say that without him at my side, things would have gone differently, so much so that I would have done something brash or stupid. Nico was there to guide me, to advise me, and to be a guardian angel when it was needed.
I can't stress to others who need to sue their employer how well Nico handled my case. I can recommend him to others as a trustworthy, responsive, and knowledgeable attorney who will fight your case the way you want it to be fought. He will guide you through the process and he will tell you what is winnable and what is not.

Nico, did wonders for us (as the Plaintive's) after a traumatic brain injury. Due to the injury, litigation was not first on our list so I was referred to him on the last day we had to file. His diligence and excellent team did not only follow through immediately, but his knowledge and negotiating skills were impeccable during what was considered a very difficult case. I'm very happy and blessed that he was on my side of the table.

N. Vrataric is an advocate for his clients and the staff constantly kept me informed of the status of my case.
Vrataric comes with my highest recommendation.

Nicolas has worked tirelessly on my personal injury case for almost three years. He himself has kept me up to date and well informed about all the legal aspects of my case. Nicolas has patiently answered all of my questions and has been empathetic and very supportive all along. We are now preparing for trial and I have complete confidence and trust in him and highly recommend Nicolas and his team.

My company NCK Partners has been working with Nico and his team the past 5 years. Nico is the type of attorney who is always looking out for your best interest. When I have a question on a legal matter I am unfamiliar with Nico is always there to help me understand, as well as give me his opinion on how best to handle certain situations. Anyone looking for an lawyer who goes above and beyond, look no further.

Nico is a very honest, hard working attorney who believes in his clients. During the most stressful experience in my life, the trial, Nico always took the time to comfort and reassure me. He did a good job of presenting the evidence and was good at thinking on his feet. He was respectful to the court, opposing counsel, the defendant and defense witnesses, even though I didn't think the defendant and those witnesses deserved the respect shown them. Although I didn't get the result I deserved, it wasn't Nico's fault, I still wouldn't hesitate to hire Nico in the future if I need an attorney again.

I hired Nico about 2 years ago because I saw him as an aggressive attorney that would also be responsive to my needs. I had much confidence in him and he performed well. He helped me resolve my case with a settlement agreement that was fair. Hopefully, I won't need the services of an attorney again, but if I do, Nico would be the first person I'd call.

Mr Vrataric and his team handled a labor case for me for unpaid wages and expenses. Everyone in his firm provided me with very professional service. Mr Vrataric thoroughly explained all my legal options such was placing a wage claim with the DLSE and the pros/cons of litigation. He never pressured me to make any decisions unless I was completely comfortable. Once we decided the proper course to take he was quickly able to negotiate a settlement with which I was very happy. I would strongly recommend him in the future.

For the average citizen, legal matters are difficult to completely understand as well as get through. After losing my job of over 6 years, that is exactly where I found myself. Worried about my future, confused about the laws, questioning my rights, and unsure what my next step should be; I began an internet search for law firms. I reviewed websites, researched case histories, noted professional achievement awards, and made phone calls to several local practices. Frustrated with the responses I was getting and almost ready to abandon my quest for justice, I called The Law Offices of Nicolas Vrataric. Following the only positive call since I had started my search, not only did I have renewed hope in my situation but I also had a consultation scheduled in 2 days. I was politely welcomed into the firm, attentively listened to, expertly advised on my potential case, and given information to take home and go through. There was no pressure or demand to retain their services nor did they rush to get through my consult. I have experienced sincere and professional interactions from every member of the staff since my initial phone call. Mr. Vrataric has always been available and willing to explain each phase of my case. He has always been informative, responsive, detailed, and readily available. He was willing to return my calls after hours to accommodate my schedule, he arranged evening appointments to avoid jeopardizing my new job, and he remained completely completely involved even if it was Mrs. Khan who attended themotion. I would highly recommend the Law Offices of Nicolas Vrataric to anyone seeking quality legal representation. In addition to successfully representing my case, Mr. Vrataric and his legal team renewed my faith in our legal system and the lawyers sworn to uphold it. This was the first legal matter I’ve experienced that I was allowed to remain actively involved in the proceedings and I never once felt like just another ‘case’.
