Response from Nicholas Kaizer December 5, 2023
Client was charged in NYS Supreme Court with money laundering, conspiracy and criminal sale of a controlled substance. We fought the case for several years while the client was released on recognizance. Client maintained employment and housing while we handled the case. Patience is a virtue because in the end, we worked out a misdemeanor plea and Client received a conditional discharge. No jail, no probation, no fine. Extremely proud of the work our team did here.

Response from Nicholas Kaizer January 3, 2023
Thank you for your kind comments. Client came to us looking at serious time for securities and wire fraud. Very difficult circumstances, as vicitm/investors were in their 80s and 90s and two of them spoke at sentencing. Nevertheless, without cooperation, our team secured a year-and-a-day custodial sentence, a dramatic downward variance from the Guidelines range of 41-51 months. We worked with Justin Paperny at White Collar Advice on this. Together, we assembled a multi-faceted team of psychologists, physicians and social workers to demonstrate that a year-and-a-day sentence was the appropriate custodial term for our client. The Court agreed.

Best lawyer
I was referred to Nicholas Kaizer by a close friend. I was happy that he was kinda enough to talk to me that Sunday evening. After speaking with him I decided to hire him. He understood my situation completely and he assured me that he can help me. I’m addition, his retainer was fair comparing to another lawyer that I spoke to that day. Nicholas Kaizer got on my case the next day and provided me with all the information regarding my situation . He answered my every phone call and email which was really nice in todays society. Thankfully my issue was resolved. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that has any legal problems.

Client received a subpoena from an FBI agent on Friday evening seeking client's testimony at an upcoming trial. We spoke with client on Sunday and quickly evaluated client's potential exposure, offering guidance in responsibly addressing the government's subpoena. We immediately interacted with the Office of the U.S. Attorney on client's behalf and brokered a Zoom call so the client would not have to go in to be interviewed. Several days later, the subpoena was withdrawn and client's trial testimony was not sought. Thanks for having faith in us.

Thank you a Million! Life is Good Again Because of You!
I wish of to thank Nick from the bottom of my heart for all he has done for me! Nick is the Babe Ruth of a Criminal Lawyers!!! When I was arrested, my sister had called a closed friend who was a lawyer for a recommendation for a criminal lawyer as a last resort. She did not know how to tell him I was in trouble. Prior to this, she called three lawyers. These lawyers wanted a significant amount of money for a retainer which my family did not have. When her friend recommended Nick and told her of his incredible reputation she knew he would help me. He came to see me in lockup. He was compassionate, caring, and uplifting in the words he spoke to me. It was if I knew him all my life. He gives lawyers a good name! He assured me everything would be ok. He told me things would be dark for a while but that I would see the light at the end of tunnel! When I posted bail on that Friday, once again he began to assure me everything would be okay. He gave me his cell number and told me he would be available for me anytime during the weekends, if I needed a shoulder to cry on. He called me during the weekends to see how I was doing. During this whole time he never once discussed money! I saw him that week. I met him and his partner at the office. By the way his partner was the same way. They explained to me the uphill battle I was facing. Again, Nick reassured me he would do everything in his power to get me probations. As he put it "let me work my magic". During the four years he told me what I had to do and I did it. He reminded me of the music conductor of the London production of Les Misérables that tremendous orchestra. He conducted me through the next four tremendous years of my life, skillfully, masterful, compassionate, caring, and always making himself available for me. He worked extremely hard and diligently to put together one of the most detailed and compressive final sentencing report for the judge that he has ever done. He got probation for me!!! I was facing 20 years in prison and he gave me my life back. Once again Nick is a fantastic, compassionate, caring and great lawyer! I will always be indebted to him for the rest of my life. It is an honor and privilege to call him my friend!!!

Peace of mind
The peace of mind I got from Mr Nicholas G Kaizer is priceless. Not only because I felt he knew exactly what to do with my situation but in the way went about explaining and helping me understand it. He didn't make me feel like I was talking to a stranger. I actually felt like I was discussing it with a family member. He was very understanding and direct about the whole situation. He definitely made me sleep better at night after every conversation I had with him. Thank you for everything

Now that my case was concluded successfully I can go on with my life. Thank you Mr. Nicholas Kaizer. I would highly recommend Mr. Kaizer to anyone needing a defense attorney.

NYS tax authorities were investigating client and his businsses for unpaid NY income taxes. We got involved early on. Working with expert tax counsel, we negotiated the lowest possible retitution for taxes figure. Although client was charged with multiple felony tax crimes, in the end, all criminal charges were dismissed. Client didn't even have to appear in court after inital the arraignment. All proceedings were accomplished remotely during the pandemic. Important to our client, he will retain his pistol license, his businesses and his spotless record being a lawful citizen; all of which were important to him. A pleasure to make this happen.

Knew exactly what to do!
One of my family members got into some difficult trouble with the law, and I was referred to Nick by another attorney. We are so thankful that we met him! Nick put the legal team together, bringing in an expert in exactly the area of criminal law we needed, consulted with the team every step of the way, and helped to achieve exactly the result we were looking for (which was not an easy or likely outcome).

Client was referred to us by her immigration attorney. She was arrested on federal charges related to unauthorized access to a military base. Since the client had a removal order pending, we could not take a chance on her coming into contact with the justice system since she would have been snatched up by ICE and deported (as a detainer was likely). We headed up the team comprised of a former military attorney, a former military physician and me. We convinced the U.S. Attorney to dismiss the charges without the client ever having to appear in court. She was spared prosecution, jail and removal from the United States. Another very gratifying result from a personal perspective.

A Life Saver! Dedication and Determination turned into Extraodinary Result!
7 Years ago I was charged with racketeering, with a Federal sentencing guideline 47 Points. At age 28 I was looking to spend 25 years in prison. While I was hopelessly waiting for trial, a friend who also had a victory in court helped by Mr Kaizer recommended me to go seek for help from him. With multi-million dollar restitution and hundreds co-defendants, it was a total mess. Mr Kaizer promised me he will do everything in his power to keep me out of jail. All these years Mr Kaizer worked the case from various angles, he used contacts and resources to help me in every possible way. Honestly, I have never met an attorney so dedicated and experienced. I have to say it was the best thing that happened! In this long process, many times I lost hope, I felt uncertain about future, but Mr Kaizer never give up on me. He treats me like a dear friend, motivates me to make the best out of life. When we went to sentencing, Mr Kaizer well presented his argument and explanation to the judge, he pinpointed about my background and my character, the judge totally agreed with his presentation, even prosecutor couldn't disagree. It was a tremendous result, judge granted 3 years probation. What more can I say? Mr Kaizer saved my life! It's like a reborn to a new world. I now operating my own company, staying together with my children and family, and moving towards a better life! All Thanks to Mr Kaizer!

Client was charged in a 25-defendant Racketeering case in Las Vegas federal court. The charges stemmed from credit card fraud and identity theft. At the outset, client was looking at a lengthy term. Mostly everybody else was sentenced to 5-15 years in federal custody. We worked the case diligently for five years (with the client out on bail). While probation was always a possibility, it was a remote possibility due to $50 million loss figures and the jurisdiction being quite harsh on financial offenses. In the end, through hard work and good legal analysis, we earned the court's respect and a probationary sentence for our client.

Eternally grateful
I was facing up to 15 years in prison, and was petrified that i would be without my family and in bars. At my age, and the condition I was in, I would likely have died in prison if i was sentenced to the charges levied against me. I was stressed, frightened and knew nothing about New York, the system or the process. I was recommended by my lawyers in Miami to NIcholas Kaizer and his partner Richard Leavitt. On the very first call, I felt that NIck understood the legal quagmire i had gotten myself into, was generous in his time with me on the phone, and most importantly his demeanor, compassion, and patience was exactly what I needed at this horrific time in my life. He settled me down, laid out a strategy and immediately began to assess my criminal case. I hired the firm that day. Its been a long awful process because of the situation I put myself in. My family suffered, and so did I. I cannot possibly describe adequately the utter fear and guilt I felt throughout the arrest and the awaiting of the result. Under Nick and Richard's guidance and behind the scenes negotiations, I ultimately plead guilty to a much much lesser charge and Nick secured a no jail time, no probation release and I just walked out of the courtroom this week a free man, never setting foot inside a New York jail. I enthusiastically recommend Nicholas Kaizer, a great man , attorney and person who quite literally saved my life, liberty and family

Client was lead-defendant charged in NY County with securities fraud related to several multi-million dollar stock promotions. We worked the case for several years, constantly chipping away at the client's exposure. Client was discouraged at first and wanted to begin serving his ultimately-expected sentence while out on bail. We talked him out of surrendering and in the end his faith in us was rewarded with a non-custodial sentence; i.e., no jail, no probation. As he noted above, he is grateful he stuck it out and served "no jail time, no probation and I just walked out of the courtroom this week a free man, never setting foot inside a New York jail." We're proud of the client's patience, our persistence and this great result.

A Great Legal Mind
Retaining Mr Nick Kaizer for representation proved to be a wise decision. He conducts himself in a manner of true professionalism and practices without judgement. Faced with serious charges, Nick facilitated in acquiring the best possible outcome for my criminal case. His experience and expertise was evident from the start. I was impressed with how effortlessly he accurately assessed the situation, and anticipated every possible obstacle. Nick's extensive knowledge of the law resulted in a deal that was more than fair, and far better than expected. He was empathetic and supportive on a personal level as well, and always went the distance for me. I have great respect for Nick, and would highly recommend his services.

Our client was subpoenaed in NY County to produce bank records which reflected millions in tax avoidance and other offenses. We produced some records but then engaged in prolonged negotiations while the DA's office moved on to other priorities. In the end, we negotiated a corporate plea and an individual misdemeanor plea charging a violation of the banking law. No jail, no probation and our tax attorneys are working with client on a reasonable payment plan with NYS tax authorities.

In Excellent Hands
In my early 20s, I was hit with securities fraud charges. I was tens of millions of dollars in debt. I felt like my life was over. Luckily, I had Nick to represent me. I trusted Nick with my life and did exactly as he said. Nick had the respect of Judges, prosecutors, the SEC and other Attorneys involved in my case. In addition, as more issues came up, Nick handled them. Any other lawyer would have asked for more money each time. That's not the case with Nick. As a client, you're like family and he looks after you. Even after 15 years have passed, Nick will pull a docket, give advice and help in any way possible. With Nick, a client is in safe hands. Trust him, listen to him and do as he says. It's what I did. I've been able to rebuild my life from the depths of despair thanks to Nick. My family and I cannot thank him enough.

Client was charged with harassment of a former girlfriend. He swore he didn't do it and we presented evidence that complainant's new boyfriend was orchestrating a plan against our client to keep him away from his son with the former girlfriend. Through hard work and analysis of phone and other records, we demonstrated that our client was not guilty of these charges and they were quickly dismissed in their entirety. Our pleasure to assist Adam.

A wonderful Lawyer
Where do I begin......My husband was in need of a good attorney. We were referred to Levitt & Kaizer. The first time I met Nick I was sure he was the one for us. This is my husband's first offense on a very serious matter. Nick showed compassion, understanding, patience and kindness during this terrible ordeal. He didn't judge. He worked with me and my husband with the best attitude. He was very straight, but kind, and gave us the best advice. He worked with us step by step. He kept in contact with us always. If I would call, he immediately called back. He made this terrible time in our lives much easier than I ever would have imagined. He did everything I could think of defending my husband. Every time the prosecutors said something derogatory against my husband, he stood up and shut them down. He remembered everything we said and my husband got the best outcome, considering his offense. By far, I was so impressed with his work ethics. An outstanding job! I would recommend him to anyone. As strange as it sounds, he made it a good experience and he never abandons you. How special is that! He is on the top of my list of people and I will never forget him for being so kind.

Our client was a union local president facing federal charges of accepting kickbacks for steering union business to a third-party health-care providers. We obtained favorable forensic psychological reports and demonstrated that our client didn't receive one penny of the kickbacks (instead going to a family member with dire needs). We negotiated (through our meticulous review of the discovery) that our client wasn't responsible for over $550K in losses as alleged in the indictment but instead, only $150K, thereby lessening his exposure substantially. We also successfully portrayed our client (former military, former police) as a good person who did something he shouldn't have done, but for good reasons. We brought up other substantial mitigation, including his having an opiod addiction from being injured while a police officer years earlier and his substantial commitment to community and family prior to his arrest. In the end, the court agreed with our analysis and sentenced our client to a very favorable non-guideline sentence .

Great attorney! Very intelligent and skillful
I was referred to Mr Kaizer by a friend, when I had a tough case in west coast. While my previous attorney was waiting for sentencing to happen, Mr Kaizer took over my case and prepared me with many ways of strategies. He used his intelligence and years of experience dealt with prosecutors and agents, making my sentencing looks much better than before. He's also very friendly and thoughtful, always treats us like family. I'm very glad I have him by my side and I would highly recommend to anyone!

Excellent Attorney!
I recently retained the services of Nick Kaizer, and his firm, to serve as local counsel and represent my interests in the Southern District of New York in a white collar criminal matter. I was impressed by his preparedness and attention to detail in a very difficult financial case. Nick helped us obtain an impossibly good result. When dealing with the federal prosecutors, you come to expect to take your lumps, minimize the damage and move on, but Nick and his expert team persevered and obtained a beyond fantastic settlement in a very difficult case. I am very impressed with Nick's diligence, intellect and firmness. A top attorney whom I unreservedly recommend. I plan to use Nick for all of my future matters in NY, and would recommend him to all of my clients and friends.

A well-respected, skillful attorney... and a true gentleman
I retained Mr. Kaizer based on the suggestion of another attorney. "Nick" represented me in a matter involving the federal government. From the first meeting with Nick, I felt at ease. He’s patient, empathetic and honest. He took the time to understand a very complex set of circumstances spanning multiple parties. Importantly, Nick is very well-respected in the legal community (which was absolutely key to achieving such a favorable outcome). He sees the ‘big picture’. Throughout the process, he was proactive and responsive to any questions that I had. In the end, he achieved an outstanding result for me – significantly better than either of us had thought possible. On a more personal note, he's a true gentleman. I feel fortunate that Nick was on my side and would recommend him without hesitation.

A Very Challenging Project
On behalf of a client, I had one hour to find a criminal lawyer, never having even spoken to one before... I found Nicholas Kaizer. I decided to entrust him and Mr. Leavitt with a bizarre and very challenging case, and thus my sanity with it. My trust could not have been better placed. Both Mr. Kaizer and Mr. Leavitt understood the complexity from the beginning and worked most diligently through this labyrinth of a case and supported the bewildered accused – and thus also me – in a most compassionate and professional manner. I will sing both Mr. Kaizer’s and Mr. Leavitt’s praises forever and ever. Hallelujah!
