About Nicholas

Learn Nicholas’s areas of practice.

Attorney Nicholas Loncar is a fierce competitor and powerful negotiator.  He uses his intensity, charisma and passion to achieve the best results for his clients.  Nicholas is a graduate of Villanova University School of Law in Pennsylvania.  Prior to enrolling at Villanova Law, Nicholas attended the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA, where he was an active member of the school’s nationally ranked varsity debate team.  During law school, Nicholas excelled in Trial Advocacy and Advanced Trial Advocacy, while also interning with numerous public defender agencies.

Nicholas has worked for the San Diego County Alternate Public Defender (a felony conflict unit), The Defender Association of Philadelphia, and the Federal Defender for the District of New Jersey.  Nicholas has represented clients in Pennsylvania and California state courts as well as assisting clients charged in Federal Court.  Additionally, Nicholas worked with a private investigation firm assisting criminal defense attorneys with supression motions.

In private practice, Nicholas worked with the prestigious private defense firm, Drossner Law, where he learned how to give each case the full attention it deserves and how to help clients achieve the best results in any case.  Nicholas is deeply committed to criminal defense and will fight hard to help you achieve your goals.  

Nicholas founded to protect all citizens from unreasonable intrusion by law enforcement.  A quick look at Nicholas' background and resume start to demonstrate how committed he is to making sure that the accused get fair representation and enjoy the due process that this nation's founding fathers intended to preserve for eternity.  While the Supreme Court seems to have no problem disregarding the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, Nicholas recognizes that K-9 sniffs, DUI checkpoints and even traffic stops are all loopholes that the courts have carved into our rights.  

A former boxer (trained by Champions Smokin’ Joe Frazier, Robert Hines and Johnny Carter), Nicholas is relentless, fearless, dedicated and aggressive.  If you’re facing criminal charges, let him fight for you.

Facing deportation due to wrongful jailing, I have exhausted most of my option UNTIL
I checked AVVO.COM since LAC Bar Association and Beverly Hill Bar association couldn't find any atty for me..I did not have much money after jailing. since I am a queer with AIDS, I did not want to go back to 'now wealthy arrogant country, south korea'... With unstoppable zeal to help other people, Mr.Loncar took time to listen to my poor English,and he sent 2 documents via email, NO CHARGE, NO GIMMICKS, With that documents( penal code 1473.7: post conviction relief,to withdraw plea and kill Deportation), I WENT BACK TO DEPT 133(FOLTZ CRIMINAL COURT), I FOUGHT INTELLIGENTLY AGAINST DA AND DA'S IMMIGRATION EXPERT over 3 hearings. I WON !!! I am permanently indebted for his unselfish vigorous willingness to help. HE CHARGED NO MONEY ~~ ! I WON ! THAT MEANS MORE THAN 50 HIGH RANK LAPD AND FORMER LAPD CHIEF(CHARLIE BECK) AND LAFD PROFESSIONAL INTERNAL AFFAIR, OIG, LAC DA AND MORE WILL GET ARRESTED OR INDICTED !! I have used attys all my life. I HAVE NEVER MET ATTY LIKE MR.LONCAR WHO DOESN'T CARE MONEY NOR PUSS ! HE IS MY TRUE HERO !!

Excellent Attorney!!!
Nicholas Loncar is an incredibly knowledgeable attorney. Every since my first phone call to him , he has been incredible! He is very easy to speak to and I recommend him highly to anybody seeking legal counsel. In my particular case, right from the beginning Nicholas has been very upfront about the case and I felt he genuinely cared about my situation. It is very refreshing to see there are attorneys out there who put their client first. Nicholas listens to your issues, clearly lays out all of your options, and then works with you to follow an aggressive plan of action to make sure you get what you need. In my case, when we had lost all hope, Nicholas with his excellent command over law and his 200% efforts was able to get us a dismissal! Nicholas is very honest, responsive and professional. He has also got great connections via his legal network. I would give him two thumbs-up and highly recommend them to anyone seeking excellent legal advice. Thank you very much for all your help Nicholas!

Best outcome possible. NICHOLAS IS YOUR ATTORNEY!!
I am writing this review in place of my father as his English is very limited. Nicholas represented my father in a misdemeanor battery case and got the charge dismissed! Although I was initially hesitant to hire an attorney as I believed the lack of evidence would get the cased dismissed, I didn't want to take chances and persuaded my father to hire Nicholas. We couldn't be happier with that decision! From our experience Nicholas was extremely warm, professional, and communicative. He is the complete opposite of the stereotypical cold and money-hungry lawyer you might be picturing. His confidence and wealth of experience put my father and I completely at ease. He also went above and beyond to get a get a driving violation dismissed which was completely unrelated to my father's main case! Although we don't have much money we found Nicholas' fees and payment options VERY reasonable and flexible. I cannot recommend him enough!! If you're looking for a criminal defense attorney who will fight for you and get you the best possible outcome, Nicholas M. Loncar IS YOUR GUY!!

Fantastic Lawyer!!
Nicholas got my DUI reduced to a Wet Reckless when there was so much evidence against me. I also hired him when I was caught with Alcohol in the car and he got that dismissed. Thanks to his great negotiating with these Prosecutors he got me these great results. If you are facing Criminal charges in Southern California I highly recommend Nicholas

Very helpful by simply answering questions and giving advice.
Nicholas had answered a public question I posted then continued to reply to my comments on his answer as I replied, leaving me fully informed on my position in the case ahead of me and well aware of my options of how to change the charge I originally received to one that is less damaging to my record and reputation. would recommend for family members, friends, or really anyone in need of help with criminal defense cases.

Nicholas tremendously helped me with information regarding my paced speeding violation. We went into great detail on what the options are and what the possible end results can be with those options. This made it easy for me to choose what to do in my case and what to do and not to do next time. I can highly recommend Nicholas due to his friendly, knowledgeable and passionate approach to help out.

BEST LAWYER IN LOS ANGELES GOES TO NICHOLAS LONCAR
Nicholas is a strong confident knowlegeable lawyer who took the time to personally know all the details of me personally as well as the details of my case. He went above and beyond doing footwork for my case calling different courthouses for documents, contacting fellow parties in the case, communicated well with the D.A., as well as even escorting me to court on my appearence to insure my safety. He had my case dismissed on one charge. and on two separte occasions had warrents of mine dismissed. Nicholas knows the laws here in Califonia VERY well and is quick to assist me in any knowledge of the laws. Hes considerate, understanding, and kind mannered. He comes from Philly and is a Boxer sooo the courtroom is his Ring and He dominates it!

★★★★★10 Star Review :) ★★★★★
First , let me start by saying that Mr. Loncars flat fees make it possible for people who have lower incomes and would normally not be able to hire an attorney, be able to hire PROPER legal representation. Its not cheap, but in comparison to the attorney's that go above and beyond with their advertising and pass their excess costs along to you(the client) , its affordable even for someone like me who has an average american income and not a ton of expendable income. Nicholas Loncar genuinely likes what he does, and I think that is a rarity when it comes to the world of legal representation. He treats you like a person rather than a file, and he is personally committed to every single case he takes on. How many people can say that theyve hired an attorney and actually felt as if their money was well spent? I dont know about you, but my experience with attorneys in general has been that they spend a lot of time discussing price and not as much time discussing your actual case. The complete opposite is true with Mr. Loncar. He will give you his fees and then immediately get into the nitty gritty of your case. He FIGHTS for you, IDK how he has enough time to have a personal life, but he devotes 100% of his time to making sure you get what you deserve, or DON'T deserve. I always thought that the way to go was with an old experienced attorney. My experiences had been negative, so I hired him on a whim and its become evident to me that younger attorneys (Mr. Loncar, anyways) are much better in EVERY respect- has the law fresh in his mind ,SOO quick on his feet, and doesnt let a THING get past him. I will never hire another attorney again if I can avoid it. I hired him for a criminal case, but he recently helped me with a civil case that is beyond his spectrum of work and I cant thank him enough for his prompt attention to the matter. I feel like he has a personal investment to every case, and whether thats true or not, the fact that he makes you feel that way, is more than I can say or ANY attorney Ive ever dealt with and/or witnessed. I could go on and on, and this is coming from a person who doesnt leave reviews unless Im angry and they're bad ones. I could NOT be happier with my experience with his firm. If you are doing your research, you can stop here. He has a fabulous track record and I dont see that changing- ever. He works just as hard as everyone says, and moreso. Your search ends here!!!!

Nicholas Milan is my new best friend.
Mr. Loncar was able to get my red light ticket dismissed. He let me know his steps and the process, so I felt very confident in his abilities. He was also really honest upfront in the chances of getting the ticket dismissed.

Dependable Through and very Inteligent
As a fellow out of state practitioner I had to locate a knowledgeable local (CA) co counsel. Attorney Loncar has provided me with everything I needed and asked of him, while providing the exact citations and back up for his stance through ad hock verifiable statutes and case precedents without neglecting local Court procedures. In my opinion clients would be well advised to seek Mr. Loncar's legal services.

Outstanding!
Nicholas is excellent! Not only did he take my case last minute, he went out of his way to fully explain (in language I could understand) all of my legal options available to me. This guy is a real professional, thank you again Nicholas!
Posted by Edward | February 5, 2013
Highly recommended
I retained Nicholas Loncar for a couple of legal matters after being recommended by a co-worker. I was gladly surprised to learn the enthusiasm Mr. Loncar has for the law and for his clients. I was thoroughly impressed with his communication diligence taking care of my case. Mr. Loncar exceeded my expectations in every category throughout my legal affair and will continue to represent me as long as he'll have me! In all seriousness, if you're looking for someone genuinely concerned with defending your legal rights please take my word, and my strongest possible endorsement, and get in contact with Mr. Loncar first.

Listens and cares what you have to say
This lawyer is worth every cent. He is very down to earth and doesn't talk down to you. He listens to what you have to say and always got back to me very quickly if I had a question. He was really prepared, remembered even small details about my case and got my most serious charge dropped. Hated the prosecutor more than I did
