Hire This Laywer!
I met Nicholas Timko about twenty years ago. I was invovled in a accident and had an injury. He represented me and handled the case impeccably. He always went above and beyond to make sure that I was informed at every step in the process regarding my case. He always communicated with me personally, and I felt I could trust him. The case was resolved with a very favorable outcome thanks to Mr. Timko and his staff. For this reason, I have been recommending Nicholas Timko to all of my friends and family . If your looking for a trustworthy,honest, compassionate, and intelligent lawyer, Nicholas Timko is the attorney for you.

"I endorse this lawyer. In my opinion, Nick is currently one of the best trial lawyers in NYC. We have worked on a number of cases together as co-counsel and I also referred him cases. He is a true trial lawyer who takes total command of the courtroom, does an extremely skilful voir dire and a masterful cross examination. He is also a tenacious advocate who will fight for his clients until the best result has been reached. I would hire him myself if I ever were to be involved in an accident in New York."
