About Nicholas

Learn Nicholas’s areas of practice.

I was raised in Channahon, Illinois. I graduated from Minooka High School. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Illinois State University in 2010, where I majored in Politics and Government and minored in Legal Studies. I was actively involved in the ISU Mock Trial program, competing in many tournaments throughout different states. Throughout college I had various legal internships, most notably with the McLean County State's Attorney Drug and Gang Unit, where I first found my interest for criminal law.

I earned my Juris Doctor from Northern Illinois University School of Law in 2013. While at NIU, I also participated in the Trial Advocacy program, competing in mock trial tournaments with other law schools. Additionally, I clerked for a local firm in DeKalb while earning my JD.

I passed the bar and was licensed to practice law in Illinois in October, 2013.

Nick was Great!
I called Nick after finding out about a charge from years ago. I didn't know what had happened (the state never served me) after I did everything I was instructed to by law enforcement in 2015. Nick was very helpful during the consult, and incredibly understanding when it came to my anxiety and being overwhelmed. He was sure to explain everything in detail, and provided wonderful customer service throughout the entire process. He even explained how to expunge the arrest after my case was dismissed. I cannot recommend him enough if you need legal representation.

Excellent representation
Mr. Carrescia guided me through the process of handling my traffic matter which resulted in a positive outcome. His expertise was very valuable- I would not have known how to proceed otherwise. I would definitely use his services again if needed.

Cleared my no insurance case
I am writing this over a year later, as I am still ever so grateful for the service provided to me by Mr. Carrescia in resolving my no insurance case, allowing me to maintain a clean record AND especially with long lines at the DMV allowed me to receive my new driver's license in the mail, as a reward for safe driving. When I received my no insurance citation, it could't have come at a possible worse time, I took the risk, and it didn't pay off. I called so many lawyers, and all were either too expensive, didn't cover the area where I received the citation, very stuck up, OR the worst: all the above. However, in the entire process, I signed up to legal shield. I had given up, and I had just been prepared to live with the consequences, then I received a call back from them, who ultimately connected me to Mr. Carrescia. His price, plus the discount, proved almost too good to be true, it was a miracle, especially in such tumultuous times. So with Mr. Carrescia we were able to have the court date pushed back 2 months to allow me to serve a better chance, as well as with him being able to show up in court on my behalf. Then over that period of time things in my personal life went from bad to worse, before I could insure my car got impounded, for the same reason, but thankfully I wasn't cited or ticketed again. So from there it progressed to now proving that the car was in the impound lot and no longer in my possession, but for additional reasons, that proved difficult to receive in writing from the impound lot, but however if one were to call they could affirm that the car was indeed there, which was now the crisis we were dealing with in the case, so just when I was prepared to call it quits, the next call I received, he tells me he cleared the case through expertise technique, and just like that my nightmare with the law was over, it was my first ever infraction, and I am ever so glad it was able to resolved as if it never happened.

House purchase
Nick helped us with all the paperwork for the closing on our house purchase. We relied on him to get everything to us in a timely fashion as we currently live out of state. Whenever I called the office, he was available to answer our questions.

Traffic Court
I was very nervous as this was my first time going to court at this magnitude. It was suggested for me to get an attorney and that Nicholas was the person to speak with. Payment was quick and easy which I appreciated. He told me the facts of the case. Though it made me uneasy I appreciated knowing what I was up against. Overall no one likes to be in court or any legal situation but Nicholas was able to get my case dismissed. He told me what I needed to do to make sure I was prepared and in right standings and I was able to do it and he then did his part and had the charges dismissed. The process before court was more nerve wrecking than the actual day of court. I was extremely pleased and would definitely recommend him. Also, seeing as I didn't know him or his firm it was the reviews about him that really put me at ease. So I'm appreciative for all those who provided their experience!

Speeding Too Fast
Nicholas Carrescia handled my case when I received two tickets for speeding way too fast and improper lane usage. I didn't know speeding too fast was as bad as a DUI yet he explained the law clearly to me and then went to work for me. It was a long shot yet Nicholas was able to get the charges reduced to a moving violation and avoid having such a grievous offense on my record. Thank you for all the help Nicholas. Your truly top notch!

Traffic Court
Giamanco Law Partners did a superb job on handling my daughters speeding ticket. After contacting Nick Carrescia he assured me that this was his specialty and that he would handle the case. One thing I personally liked about Nick was that he called me back late after the law office was closed and this gave me the comfort I needed. That this was the correct law firm. Nick had an emergency on the day of court Phyllis Roman was present at court and represented my daughter. Phyllis was awesome in getting my daughters potential class A misdemeanor reduced to a petty speeding ticket. After court both Nick and Phyllis and called us and asked if there were any other questions and emailed us the results on where to pay the fine and etc. If you need a traffic lawyer Nick and Phyllis are the ones you want to hire!

Traffic court well done
WAs referred by Legal Shield to this law firm and was contacted promptly by Nick. Had missed a court date due to moving and was in need of help to not have a simple speeding ticket permanently impacting my record. Options were discussed and quick turn around ...then my issue was resolved! It is hard to find an attorney attentive and responsive for such simple matters but it was found here!

Professional and knowledgeable
I hired Nicholas Carrescia to handle a criminal matter I found myself involved in. Having never been in a similar situation I was completely unprepared. Nicholas walked me through exactly what the charges were, what the penalties could be as well as all potential outcomes that were possible. He spoke plainly about my situation and gave honest answers knowing that they wouldn't be what I would want to hear but they would be what I needed to hear. He kept me apprised of all developments as they occurred and showed initiative in getting results. As this was my first and hopefully last criminal matter I had no shortage of questions. Nicholas took the time to address all my concerns. The result of my case was a complete dismissal of the charges due in large part to Nicholas' involvement and hard work. I couldn't of been happier with his efforts. I hope to never need his services again but if I do, he will be my first call.
