There’s not enough words to explain how grateful I am with Nick. He defended my husband in a 25 to life case. No matter how difficult it seemed Nick never gave up. He is very humble, respectful, honest and professional! He was always keeping us updated and letting us know of the status of the case. He would always return our calls and txt messages. Not like others lawyers that all they want is money. Thank you Nick for representing my husband and giving him a new opportunity to start all over with us. God bless you. Thanks to you the case was dismissed!!!

Nick is an incredible lawyer. I worked with Nick for about 2 years to have my case resolved. I selected him from conducting 7 interviews with a couple of other lawyers but I knew that he was the man for the job when I talked to him. I selected him after 2 interviews after I knew that he was an experienced lawyer and handled numerous cases within my charge. Nick is very thorough, professional, and always goes above and beyond for his clients. He is very exceptional and I would recommend Nick again in the future for any client that wants to either win, dismiss, or reduce any charges. I highly recommend Nick Cvietkovich.

When I got my second DUI, a friend of mine told me about Nick and how he is a great defense lawyer and would do whatever it took to get me the best deal. Upon meeting him, I already that I was in good hands. Throughout my case, he would keep me updated with any new information that would help my case and always be ready to answer my questions. He was very understanding with everything and helped me every way possible. Then when I got in trouble with driving without a license, I went back to him and he quickly took my case and did such a wonderful job. I was worried about what would have happened with me but Nick kept me calm and would make sure that I would be taken care. He is a great lawyer with great staff and is someone I recommend to anyone that is looking for a top notch defense lawyer. Thank you for everything Nick.

I was pulled over by the police in San Jose about 4 months ago with a .09 blood alcohol level. I knew I had to get some help. This was my first time ever needing legal help. When I spoke with Nick he sounded like a nice guy. He was knowledgeable and offered a very reasonable price. So I went with him and hoped for the best. Little did I know I had just hired an excellent lawyer. He went to work right away. He made me feel comfortable and was always quick to get back to my questions and concerns and always kept me informed with the case. Four months later his strategy worked great. I had prepared myself for a DUI sentence but was hoping to get at least a wet reckless. I ended up walking away with a dry reckless and a small fine. My license was not affected either. I can’t thank him enough. Nick is a very intelligent, personable and clever lawyer. He knows the system well and was able to get me the lightest possible sentence. If I ever have any legal questions or need any legal help in the future, he will be my first call.

I give 5 stars for Mr. Cvietkovich. My family was going through a terrible tragedy and on top of that had a legal issue that was time sensitive. I contacted Nick Cvietkovich and in just a few hours Mr. Cvietkovich got all the parties together and resolved the issues. Some things are worth more than money. My family and I owe Mr. Cvietkovich way more than he charged which was extremely reasonable. Everyone needs a lawyer that not only gets things done but gets things done quickly. Thank you Nick Cvietkovich – words cannot express my gratitude.
