I decided to hire Nick to represent me after my DUI arrest. He set realistic expectations for the odds of me winning my case, and reviewed a solid plan of action he was going to take to try to exonerate my record. At no point did I feel like he made any false promises, nor did he ever pressure me to go to trial.
In the end I was convicted (my odds were slightly above weak at best) but Nick was able to get my sentence significantly reduced, both with my DUI class length and my community service time. He also offered one of the best quotes for his services, and went above and beyond in terms of service and courtesy.
I had never been in trouble with the law before and even though I work for a law firm it did not deal with the type of moving violation I had. I sought out Mr. Cvietkovich because I realized I was in way over my head. Before my Court date he informed me of what to expect, how to proceed and not to worry that he was going to discuss the case with the DA and see where they were at. This was a huge relief. After he spoke with them he let me know I would be looking at community service. I was 100% ok with this and it was a better outcome than having to pay a high fine. I got my community hours and was very pleased with how many I had to serve. It seemed very fair to me and once I served my hours, my case was dismissed. Mr. Cvietkovich was VERY professional and knowledgeable and was able to lower my anxiety. He was able with his knowledge of the law to get me an outcome that both pleased the court and me. I would and have recommended him to friends and family alike. He is an excellent attorney.
My cousin referred me to Nick when I was arrested for hit & run. I was told this could get me deported. Nick help me a lot to get better deal. He was able to get that charge dropped and lesser charges for the others. I'm was very happy with him and the work he did for me. Also, I can understand Nick, but sometimes his secretary help to translate. She was also very nice and helped me alot.
I feel Nick handle my case very well. He kept me in the loop at all times. If I had concerns, he made sure they were taken care of.
If I ever need a lawyer again, I would be calling Nick.
I would hire this attorney again. He kept me from serving any time or probation. I only had to pay the courts a minimal fee for breaking a court order. Thank you Nick...you saved my neck.
allot of incopetence i had a weak case and i know when im not getting 100% effort from anyone i have worked with and that was the case here cheap yes, worth saving money absolutely not spend the money get a good attorney check out good. I feel this Attorney was green and not very respected by his peers
My 21 yr old son had violated his felony probation & had 2 new charges. He was facing 6-8 yrs in prison. Nick fought hard for my son. My son was sentenced last month to 1 year of rehab & 3 yrs of probation thanks to Nick Cvietkovich. I've put my faith in Public Defenders in the past regarding my son and the outcome was more than disappointing. I am very impressed with Mr. Cvietkovich's expertise. Thank you so much Nick, I am so thankful & grateful for hiring you!
I was pulled over by the police in San Jose about 4 months ago with a .09 blood alcohol level. I knew I had to get some help. This was my first time ever needing legal help. When I spoke with Nick he sounded like a nice guy. He was knowledgeable and offered a very reasonable price. So I went with him and hoped for the best. Little did I know I had just hired an excellent lawyer. He went to work right away. He made me feel comfortable and was always quick to get back to my questions and concerns and always kept me informed with the case. Four months later his strategy worked great. I had prepared myself for a DUI sentence but was hoping to get at least a wet reckless. I ended up walking away with a dry reckless and a small fine. My license was not affected either. I cant thank him enough.
Nick is a very intelligent, personable and clever lawyer. He knows the system well and was able to get me the lightest possible sentence. If I ever have any legal questions or need any legal help in the future, he will be my first call.
