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.

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.

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.

Nicole is so good I wanted to work with her! One judge reminds me every time I appear before her of the most unbelievable trial win Nicole had before her. Another judge I know has referred (unrelated) cases to Nicole. She is respected everywhere. So- I endorse her.
