Deserves a Legal Gold Medal!
Not knowing much on legal issues and trying to deal with a neighbor attempting to scam my elderly mother out of a piece of her property. Nick was recommended to us. Nick's level of knowledge and experience fused together with his listening skills and responsiveness. Made it easy to comprehend what was required to go to court. I was impressed by his analytical skills - from all points of view and his diligent research. His detailed communication helped us organize the information needed to present. While his convincing court 'speaking skills' helped win the case. Only Lawyer to call! Thank you for saving me and my family!

A flexible, fighting legal genius
Nick is an amazing lawyer. Nick will answer or return your call the same day, and generally have an answer to your questions. Not only that he comes up with legal strategies that are amazing and work. In my case the opposition attorney just kept on asking for continuances in that Nick blocked him at every turn. Don't waste your time and money on a paper pusher that just wants to get paid and settle the case quickly. Nick wins.

Excellent lawyer and person
I had an unusual case with a landlord who hadn't registered their business. Mr. Vidoni took a situation that a lot of lawyers probably wouldn't and was extremely thorough, dug through a lot of mud and had to untangle a messed up corporate web. He was at all times extremely knowledgeable, informative, and treated me with respect and as a human being. I've had both good and bad situations with lawyers and this was by far the best. The corporation I was up against lawyered up with a well respected attorney and Mr. Vidoni was confident, aggressive and didn't back down. He regularly emailed me or called me after working hours to discuss my case. It was easy to see he is an extremely hard worker. He always took time to explain everything to me and treated me more like a person than a client. To me just that fact alone goes an extremely long way considering that when you and your family is facing an eviction from a large company it can be frightening, overwhelming and feel like you have very little hope. As far as many experience goes, I feel Mr. Vidoni will soon enough be running his own practice, made partner, or better. He is a man and lawyer on the rise and no matter what your situation is, I promise that you will feel better after speaking with him once.

Brilliant!
Brilliant doesn't even begin to describe Mr. Vidoni! I was in the process of completing a mortgage modification, and the bank requested the sale of my home be canceled. The judge denied their motion. Then after the sale the bank and I requested the sale be vacated, but the judge denied our request. I requested that the judge allow me to remain in my home while pending appeal and he denied me! By the time Mr. Vidoni entered this mess I was literally minutes away from the sheriff removing me from my family home and he was able to get the appellate court to grant the stay! We have one more miniscule hurtle and this whole ordeal will be behind me. Mr. Vidoni is very knowledgeable, prompt, and thorough! Thank you so much!

HOA/ARC
Mr. Vidoni helped me get thru my HOA/ARC review board with a favorable result. He was professional, knowledgeable, used strong case law rulings to help support our position. At no point did I feel uncomfortable with his guidance, direction, or outcome.

Waste of Money and Time
Hired Mr. Vidoni in my case and during covid time, hearings were mostly done online via teams. He attended 2 hearings of my case and I dialed-in to listen. Both of those hearings he was not prepared resulting to the judgement favored to the other side. He often uttered a filling word when he don't know what to say next and stuttered a bit. He started to charge a reasonable rate during the initial intake of the case and suddenly increase his rate as he claim the case is getting complicated and I'm getting trapped as the case has already dragged and he has all the details. Overall, hiring him is a waste of money. Very poor representation, lack of preparation in court hearings and incompetent.

Response from Nicholas Vidoni September 23, 2022
Since this comment is anonymous, I do not know whether this review is by a former client or an opposing party. Based on the information provided, I believe that this person is not a former client. I have never increased my hourly rate unilaterally without client consent. The facts described by this person do not appear to be facts that have ever occurred.

DO NOT HIRE Nicholas Vidoni
Do not hire Nicholas Vidoni. He overcharge for his overly research time with no positive results. He is not good in trial either. He always say ahhh as a filler words. He will drag your case to collect more money. I made a big mistake to hire him. Do not make the same mistake. Do not hire nicholas vidoni.
Response from Nicholas Vidoni September 13, 2021
Because this comment is anonymous, I do not know if this is a comment from a client or an opposing party. Based upon Florida Bar Rules, no attorney can guarantee any result. This is because even in cases based upon good law and good facts in the client's favor, judges and juries can make mistakes, or even disagree with the lawyer's interpretations of events. For example, cases get reversed on appeal all of the time because judges or juries made the wrong decision. Costs to litigate or conduct research are not entirely dependent upon me. Litigation always involves at least two parties. If the other side puts up a fight, we need to fight back. Typically, if I do not fight back, the chance of my client's success goes down. If an issue is important enough to litigate, it is important to present the law to the judge that supports the action. This involves research. Depending upon the issues presented in the case and the issues raised by the other side, more research may be needed. Typically, lawyers who do the work to prepare the case correctly and research the law have a better shot at obtaining favorable results than those who do not. My firm does not do empty work just to collect more money. We are a busy firm with limited resources on time. I only have time to bill for work that the case requires, and I comply with the Florida Bar ethical rules to charge a reasonable fee for my services.
