best attorney money could buy
Nick is honestly one of the best lawyers that i ever met .My family and i have used tons of attorneys through out the years and no one is better than Nick. More than being a good attorney that judges throughout michigan respect , but he’s a good human being that actually cares about his clients even after he’s done with them, which is rare. Thank you Nick for everything !

I needed an attorney in order to have my drivers license restored, after speaking with a few found on the internet I spoke with Nick. It did not take long into the phone conversation he was very easy to talk to. After meeting him at his office I hired him to assist in my license restoration. He was professional and lawyerly yet easy to talk to and understand to the average guy if that makes sense. Anyone who has dealt with a license restoration knows it can be trying at best, my case was no exception. Nick took care of all stumbling blocks, kept me up to date on proceedings, and promptly returned every one of the several calls I made to him. At the very end there was a hiccup and again he took care of the issue, and did it fast! Thanks to him I now have full driving privileges. There are a lot of good attorneys out there, Mr. Backos is one of the best IMO.

Nick Backos Esq.
Ok. Nicholas Backos is hands down, by a landslide, the best criminal defense attorney in Southeast, Michigan. He is a Saint and I don't know what I would have done without his aid. Thanks again, Nick!

I was a client of Nicholas Backos and I can not be more grateful that I chose him to be my attorney from Lustig Law Firm. The appointments were prompt, well managed and the secretary and staff were professional and genuine. The whole experience from start to finish was professional and these are the qualities that you absolutely want when searching for your lawyer. Nicholas Backos deserves my excellent review and I am so happy that I hired him as my attorney. Extremely honest, dedicated, delivered more than promised, returned phone calls/texts promptly, great communicator, strong recall and attention to detail, and achieved unprecedented results. 5 star attorney!

Professional and Honest Attorney
After having discussed my case & having been dissatisfied with a few different attorneys on there opinions & options, I had then been advised by a friend that I SHOULD GO WITH NICHOLAS BACKOS. Not only was he professional, honest & always informful. I appreciated the fact that he was completely REALISTIC when I inquired about any questions I had, and having an attorneys ‘Truly honest beliefs on what to realistically expect from sentencing’ put my mindset at ease. I would recommend Nicholas Backos to anyone looking for legal representation.

Excellent Attorney
Nick did an excellent job for me. I would highly recommend Nick to anyone in need of a great attorney. He was able to get the best possible results for my case. Had Nick not represented me, I believe that the outcome of my case would not have been as favorable for me. He returned every phone call, every text message, and quickly answered every question. Nick was very positive, confident and knew the best angle to take for each situation. I have no doubt that Nick had my best interest in mind and did the absolute best he could to represent me. He knows what's he doing and and how to best manage the system and it shows.
