When I got injured at work and I was concerned about many challenges I was facing at that time due to my work related accident. Pothitakis Law Firm gave me understanding about my situation and walked with me until I got my claim resolved. I do not think I could have had better support than the one I got from Pothitakis Law Firm. Louis

Mr. Pothitakis and his staff surpassed all of my expectations. In addition to handling the legal aspects of my claim, they consistently called to see how I was feeling and if there was anything else I needed to make the process easier. The response time for any questions I had was always same day and often within minutes. Niko and his staff really seem to care for the person and not just as a client. My claim was not the biggest by far, but never once did I feel like I was a lesser priority. The expertise and attention combined with the compassion , kindness and concern, easily make Pothitakis Law Firm the Best Law Firm for people involved in a Worker Compensation claim. I enthusiastically recommend Niko and his staff to all people needing representation in Workers Compensation cases. His complete and tireless dedication to his clients proves him and his staff worthy of the highest accolades.

I have recommended Niko of Pothitakis Law Firm to others. He and his team work very well together. If I ever had a question, I would hear back from Niko himself or a member of his staff in a very timely manner. I was always made aware of how my case was progressing and what could be expected as the next step. Niko helped calm my fears and always had pleasant, positive, and professional words of encouragement throughout my case. I know that without the help of Pothitakis Law Firm in my corner I would not have won my case.

Some lawyers take a claim just to get paid either way win or lose. Pothitakis Law Firm does it because they believe in you and your rights. They always know my name when I walk in or if I call. They make you feel like your big brother is going to fight for you. They are the best hands down.
Ken White
Workers' Compensation Law - Claimants
Unknown to me at the time, deciding to contact Pothitakis Law Firm about mounting concerns when I did was the best decision I could have made after being hurt at work. Niko and his team at the office took me in like family. He showed compassion and was honest and straight forward at the same time with the reality of what was happening. He kept me informed on a regular basis and explained what was going on every step of the way throughout the process and has even called just to see how I am doing several times after my Workman's Comp claim was settled. He did much more than he had to do in my opinion. I have, and will continue to highly recommend Niko and his team to anyone who finds themselves in the situation I was in.
