The state of Georgia indicted me on two counts of Racketeering that I did not commit. Nick defended me with dedication, caring, and skillfulness in interacting with all parties involved. Against almost insurmountable odds, he was able to get my case dismissed. I will be eternally grateful for all he has done for me. I consider him a superb criminal defense attorney and also call him my friend!

I chose Nick after interviewing many criminal lawyers. It was the best decision I could have made. I was facing some very serious charges that could have resulted in me being incarcerated. Over a 2 year period he guided me through meetings with the DOJ. He always gave me sound advice and kept me posted on any situational matters. He was eloquent in the courtroom and street smart in his interaction with any and all parties involved in my case. Due his expertise I surprisingly was only sentenced to a short period of house arrest and no fine. I certainly don' t expect to be in this situation again but I would strongly recommend to anybody facing criminal charges to retain Nick Lotito. You will be in good hands

I was very lucky to have discovered Nick when the State of GA brought charged me with a felony that I did not commit. I had been released on bond but with a travel restriction so I could not leave the state, but was slated to start a new job outside the state the following week!
When I explained the situation to Nick, he reacted quickly and intervened. He was able to get the travel restriction lifted before even all the case's papers had arrived at the courthouse! As the case progressed, he kept me fully in the loop on everything development and did everything possible to help. He was able to get the charges dropped fully on the very first court date with out an issue. Once the charges were dropped, he even helped me to free my car from impound by providing paperwork and doing the research needed to get it released.
I realize that Nick provided me with the best possible outcome of this case, and could not have done it without him. If you are looking at heavy charges and need someone who will fight for you and keep you updated as much as possible, Nick comes highly recommended from me.
