Niko Pothitakis worked very hard for me. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and prepared. He treated me with respect. He really listened to me. I received a very fair settlement because of his tremendous work ethic. I can never thank him enough.

If you are going through a Workers Comp. case, don't go through it alone. The Insurance companies and their lawyers are NOT your friends. It will seem like everyone is working against you and they are. Niko and his staff will be the best friends you could hope for. From the initial consultation, Niko sets your fear and anxiety to rest. He makes sure that treatments, surgeries, prescriptions and monetary benefits keep coming. Many times my benefits checks stopped coming and Niko always jumped right on it for me. More than once Niko texted me on the weekend to say that he was contacting the other law firm to get after the insurance company.
Niko and his team often contacted me just to see how I was feeling after surgeries or during the long rehab process. You need that kind of support because at times it will seem like everyone has forgotten about you. Niko always took time to respond to any questions I had even though mine was not the biggest case. He never once makes you feel like you are anything less than a priority to his firm.
My case settled after 3 years. The wheels of justice may not move quickly but Niko makes sure they keep moving in your direction. Work Comp settlements are not designed to make you rich but Niko gets you excellent results.
Finally, Niko is simply a nice man. I am soooo glad to have this case settled and behind me but today was almost kind of sad when I signed the last of my paperwork. It was almost like saying goodbye to a lifelong friend who was there for you when you needed it most. Just then Niko told me to stay in touch and update him from time to time about my future activities. He said it was his pleasure to help me and he thought I was a good guy. Same goes for me Niko. Thanks for everything Niko and thanks to your wonderful staff.

Niko and his staff helped my husband through a very difficult time in his life. After being hurt on the job and many months of medical treatment he was fired. At a time in our lives when we were struggling Niko and staff were there to answer questions and help us navigate the confusing waters of the work comp system in Iowa. We were advised not to settle for the paltry amount offered and went on to win a sizable award due to my husbands loss to the job market. We are thankful for them every day!
