I decided to hire Nick to represent me after my DUI arrest. He set realistic expectations for the odds of me winning my case, and reviewed a solid plan of action he was going to take to try to exonerate my record. At no point did I feel like he made any false promises, nor did he ever pressure me to go to trial.
In the end I was convicted (my odds were slightly above weak at best) but Nick was able to get my sentence significantly reduced, both with my DUI class length and my community service time. He also offered one of the best quotes for his services, and went above and beyond in terms of service and courtesy.

I had never been in trouble with the law before and even though I work for a law firm it did not deal with the type of moving violation I had. I sought out Mr. Cvietkovich because I realized I was in way over my head. Before my Court date he informed me of what to expect, how to proceed and not to worry that he was going to discuss the case with the DA and see where they were at. This was a huge relief. After he spoke with them he let me know I would be looking at community service. I was 100% ok with this and it was a better outcome than having to pay a high fine. I got my community hours and was very pleased with how many I had to serve. It seemed very fair to me and once I served my hours, my case was dismissed. Mr. Cvietkovich was VERY professional and knowledgeable and was able to lower my anxiety. He was able with his knowledge of the law to get me an outcome that both pleased the court and me. I would and have recommended him to friends and family alike. He is an excellent attorney.
