Question about postnuptial agreements
Nicholas was very knowledgeable about current legislations and clearly explained the current situation with them and how they affected my current situation. Very helpful!

Nicholas calmed my nerves
I had a consultation with Nicholas regarding marriage dissolution advice and he made me feel very comfortable and safe throughout this difficult time. Financially, it was very clear to me that he had my best interest in mind and he was not out for money as his recommendations clearly didn’t benefit his own financial gain from the situation. Nicholas answered all my questions and I would highly recommend hiring him as your lawyer.

Professionalism and Personal Touch You Will Want in Your Corner
We were referred to Nick last year when we came to the difficult realization that a situation we had been trying to handle ourselves required formal legal action. This is our first time dealing with this type of a legal case, and we were anxious and uncertain about the process. From the initial consultation and all along the way, Nick has taken the time to patiently explain everything, answer all of our questions and provide reassurance. He has taken care to fully understand our needs and goals, and to present our legal options with both the pros and cons of each. What has impressed us the most is his responsiveness and accessibility. He always responds to emails, calls and texts in a timely manner and notifies us immediately of updates on our case. We feel fortunate that we retained him to handle our case. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nick to our close friends or family.

Great experience
Nicolas was recommended to me by a friend. I was looking for help regarding a deed and Nicolas was the right person for that job. Very easy to get in touch with, extremely patient and polite, he was very fast to respond to my emails or calls and very clear in explaining my concerns.

End of Life and Short Sale
Nick helped our family when my father passed away. Not only did he help us with the estate, but he also helped us work through issues with my father's house that we could no longer afford to keep. He did this all at a very reasonable rate, and I don't think we could have gotten better service even from the highest-priced attorney. You're definitely making the right decision if you hire him! Thanks so much for everything, Nick!

Thoughtful and Thorough
Nick is a fantastic attorney. He has represented my growing business well in all matters. Often, even good lawyers lack business sense, but Nick has it in spades, and in combination with his sharp legal mind he has helped guide my business on the path to success.

Reliable, trustworthy, and talented. High quality service with caring and compassion.
There is no one I would trust more to address any of my legal needs. I recommend him to all of the family and friends I care most about. I know he will give not only high quality law services, but also truly cares. He takes the time and personally invests in each and every one of his clients. I could not be more satisfied and look forward to using his services again in future.

Worst Attorney
This guy is the worst attorney in Cleveland. Assured me every step of the way that we were in good shape, meanwhile he is having phone conference with opposing council and judge that we are settling. Never tells me about email he sent to opposing council or phone conference with judge. Then there is another phone conference that he doesn’t tell me what it is for. It’s for enforcement of agreement I am unaware of. He still assures me that at our court date that we will prevail. Not only do we lose it costs me another $4,500 in opposing legal fees. This guy is poor at his job and a poor communicator.

Unprofessional/slow to respond...
....i was expecting to receive the opinion and/or results of research from Nick, the licensed attorney. He said "he," was going to look into it and let me know what he found out. Ive waited nearly a week for nothing; wasting my time to receive an answer as promised; showing unprofessionalism and lack of regard for such a time sensitive matter. *I emailed three times to follow up for an answer. I would "not," recommend the Weiss Law Firm to anyone seeking legal advice or representation.

Response from Nicholas Weiss November 1, 2021
Hi Vanessa, I've reviewed my emails for the past several weeks and I do not see an email from someone with your name, but I do have an opposing party in a case named Vanessa. Please feel free to reach out to me with any issues. Sincerely, Nick Weiss

Litigation Attorney | Feb 18
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have worked with Nicholas since we were both in law school. While we largely represent clients who are adverse to each other, Nicholas has always fought hard for his clients and displayed great professionalism. He is also a good sounding board for certain legal arguments as we both see different sides to the same coin."
