Uhhh its Patterson today mark 6 months from another remarkable Victory. I had so many fears but was never ONCE in doubt!
Well it took me 6 months today to be EXACT, after Ms. Bellina's gave me my life back thru the powers of God and her excellent expertise & experience of course its remarkable she reminds me of the higher being. World! whatever you believe in believe in Ms. Bellina's as your attorney for all your legal matters in all areas and expertise of her firm. its like since that day of dismissed and seal announcement by the judge. It seems as if I am now realizing that I am well breathing and alive again things has been better greater as to what Ms.Bellina's always assured me in a very calm manor every step of the way, a breath of fresh air. I felt as if I was in a ocean and I cannot swim and I am the smallest fish there Ms. Bellina's assures me that I am going to be okay watch, wait & see I have experience in the court especially these subject matters be patient she always told me that and Anthony I know the feeling that you are anxious to see the outcome and put this behind you and move on with your life with your family but just be patient. Sometimes, I get so anxious at times it feels as if am off my meds haha and Ms. Bellina's always calm me down in such a calm demeanor. I would recommend Ms. Bellina's even to my worst enemies that is how great Ms. Bellina's is she would never let her clients down, she always fight for the best outcome for her client's and of course that comes with time spent in the court on almost all matters and proceedings. Ms Bellina's and her firm is worth every dollar down to the pennies they charge at the firm you are not paying for a product here, life is no gamble you are paying for an experience and a positive outcome to the best outcome and alternatives. Sometimes I felt as if I cannot breath Ms. Bellina's assures me that I will breath again and see now I am breathing again. ON this website on Ms. Bellina's profile it states TOP 100 NATIONAL TRIAL lawyer for me SHE IS THE TOP 1 as in #1 trail and defense lawyer world wide, her track records its next to impossible all wins THANK YOU Ms. Bellina's you saved my LIFE I could not imagine life at any other outcome . Sighsssss, now every since its just peace, gratefulness gratitude, try to help everyone because you helped me with your experience, you and God gave me another shot at life and I am definitely taking it. Thank you again, I cannot wait to give you more great new in the positive of-course I go back to head quarters soon within a week or so. Destiny would have life no other way so I give thanks and praises. PEOPLE SHE IS YOUR BEST BET & YOUR BEST PICK TO DEFEND YOU IN A LEGAL MATTERS SHE HAS EXPERTISE IN SHE OR HER FIRM DO NOT SCREW YOUR LIFE UP BY CHOOSING ANY OTHER COUNSEL YOU WILL REGRET IT IN THE LONG RUN. THEN YOU WOULD REALIZE THAT ANY OTHER CHOICE BUT Ms. Bellina's or her firm is very short live at that point it will be too late. REMEMBER LIFE HAS NO DO OVERS AND YESTERDAY IS ALREADY GONE. ON THE BEHALF OF THE PATTERSON FAMILY WE ADORE AND THANK YOU Ms. Bellina's this review well earn and deserving for you and your firm the GREATEST BEST THERE IS.

Thorough, communicative and gets the job done
Nicole immediately made me feel at ease with my case. She's thorough and explains all the details, she's quick to respond to any questions or concerns and cares about her client. Most importantly, she got the job done and I really appreciate her work.

DWI Case
Ms. Nicole Bellina helped me through a very difficult, stressful situation. I was arrested for DWI - my first arrest ever. She met me at Central Booking, Brooklyn, NY and assured me that the worst was over and would guide and counsel me through the legal proceedings. She made me feel at ease and hopeful that I would be able to get through this. Since that first meeting, Ms. Bellina has shown legal expertise/experience, compassion and drive through several court appearances. The misdemeanor charge will be reduced to an infraction after completing agreed-to program with the DA. Furthermore, at a NYS DMV Chemical Test Refusal appearance, she persuaded the judge to close the case due to probable cause for arrest not established. She has my full confidence and trust in handling my case. I would definitely recommend her to my family, friends and colleagues.

So Helpful !!!
I was very fortunate to be referred to Nicole Belina's services by a judge in a court case brought against me in New York last summer. She ensured that what may have been a very lengthy and stressful ordeal was made easier with her nuanced legal expertise, sincerity and generous commitment to the acquittal of my case. Her success clearly shows a career has been spent defending clients from a legal system that can be vindictive and difficult to navigate, and I would gladly trust her services again for future legal counsel and defense. I strongly recommend Ms. Bellina's services and am sure that such a competent and assuring counsel will be difficult to find elsewhere.

Excellent lawyer
I highly recommend Nicole Bellina. She is smart, experienced, and compassionate. She always takes the initiative to follow up every interaction without having to be prompted. I would definitely take advantage of her expertise again, although I hope I don't have to.
