Great consultation
Florentina was very helpful, knowledgeable, and accurate with her suggestions and advice. She had a lot of insight. Knew a lot about immigration and family law. I would recommend without hesitation her services. Her partner was also very friendly and easy to talk to.

Most Amazing, Honest, Compassionate Lawyer!!
Senior Citizens... A new Management Company took over the building we have been living in for over 41 years and started pretty much harassing all the Senior Citizens and all Tenants that have had rent stabilized and rent controlled apartments. At first, I tried handling this in the Housing Court myself back in September. 2016, when this all started after they purchased the building in August 2016. To no avail and after 6 trips to the Courthouse myself and being taken for a ride by their lawyers, I decided it was time in November to hire a lawyer. This is when I found Florentina. From the very first hello on the phone she was so pleasant, concerned and promised she would help and not to worry. She got right on to everything, called their lawyer and counseled us every day via phone and email numerously, to ensure we were at ease at all times. When we first met her in Court back in November 2016, she was with us from 9am-4pm as their lawyer decided to play games and play the system to their advantage. Florentina did not stand for it at all. She took total control and filed the proper paperwork for a new court hearing in front of the judge, along with a complaint for repairs which they refused to fix. We went back to Court in Dec. 2016 and again in front of the Judge on Jan. 2017 and by Feb 17th, everything was settled in our favor. She made the judge see that we (my parents were taken advantage of and made it a point to show the landlord and new owner that she was not going to stand for it and will protect the rights of my parents, senior citizens until the very end). I cannot begin to tell all of you what a load off my shoulders Florentina took. She took care of my parents like they were her own. In Court she never left our side and she was in constant contact throughout keeping me in the loop and informed of all steps we would take. She fought like a real true honest lawyer should. I did not believe there were such honest lawyers left ... that is why I tried on my own to help my parents, because I was afraid, but at the end of the day I was not a lawyer and was afraid I would hurt them. Once I met Florentina, I knew they, WE were in the best of hands. I strongly recommend her, but most important, I cannot thank her enough and remain eternally grateful, for the simple fact that she was honest, trustworthy, compassionate and continues to follow-up with us to make sure that all still is well. If that is not DEVOTION, I don't know what is.

Excellence
Florentina Nica is and has been a saving grace in all our interactions in court for us and our clients. She is always on point and never ever leaves a stone unturned.Follow-up is one of the best I have ever seen. My Father was an Attorney and so is my daughter and Florentina has the same work ethic that he had and my daughter has. Very well pleased.She knows her stuff.Couldn't wish for a more efficient and knowledgeable Attorney if I tried.One could not do better than Florentina.
