Great Lawyer
Nick was very helpful and attentive to my needs when representing me on behalf of my insurance company, during a recent lawsuit involving a tenant injuring themselves while renting a property from me. The result was settling out of court for a meager amount, all defending parties considered this a win.

Dependable and dedicated
Nick spent the time to understand all of the details no matter how small, and their impact on my case. He is a dedicated professional and I would not hesitate to hire him again should the need arise.
