The man to see for any criminal case. He beat my murder case for me when no one believed in me - he did. He is a winner. ... No one delivers with preparation and local knowledge like he does. If you or a family member is in a tough situation I cannot recommend him enough. He is caring and you are more than a case to him. He is a fine person and great trial lawyer.


Mr. Nikitas is a wonderful, caring and quite knowledgeable attorney who has stood behind my wife and I for over a year and a half. I would rate him at the very top and recommend him highly.


In my opinion, the finest trial lawyer in Lake County. You should see this guy in front of a jury. He is a natural and very straightforward, prepared and knowledgeable. He prepares like no one else and you can tell that the prosecutors and judges respect him and like him. He is always on your side and fighting. He beat a very serious case for me and was always honest in answering my questions and my family's questions. I was in custody a long time and he has a great reputation with the jail population because they know what kind of results he gets for his clients. He has so much experience on big cases for someone his age. Cannot recommend him enough. He is humble and never promises anything other than that he will do his best for you. That is different than other attorneys. Cares about what happens to you and really does a great job. ... Thank you for all you have done for me. My family and I love you.
