This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
EEOC Disabled vet case
I requested an adjusted in my work schedule because of my veterans disability. Instead my employer demoted me from full-time to part-time. Nick negotiated a really nice settlement for back pay and future pay and I got to leave that company. He pushed for me and got it done quickly. His staff is very professional and kept me informed on the case status. I talked to the paralegal more than Nick, but she was very knowledgeable and patient in answering my questions. I was very impressed with Nick's representation of me, and I would recommend him to anyone else needing representation in this area.
