    “Nick defended me with dedication, caring, and skillfulness - I will be eternally grateful”
    Thank You Nick, For Justice! The state of Georgia indicted me on two counts of Racketeering that I did not commit. Nick defended me with dedication, caring, and skillfulness in interacting with all parties involved. Against almost insurmountable odds, he was able to get my case dismissed. I will be eternally grateful for all he has done for me. I consider him a superb criminal defense attorney and also call him my friend!

    “Mr. Lotito truly went above and beyond every step of the way.”
    Nick Lotito recently represented one of my close family members in a vehicular homicide case. He helped our family navigate through this incredibly traumatic experience with grace and compassion. He was organized, well prepared, and thorough. And always responded to our emails and phone calls immediately. Mr. Lotito truly went above and beyond every step of the way. Highly, highly recommended!

    “very impressed”
    Good and Knowledgeable I was in a bad situation at one point in my life, the Federal Government brought criminal action against me and I knew i had to be accountable for my action. I was looking for a good lawyer who specialized in criminal lawyer, one who has professional experience in a court room and could give me a good advice on what I needed to do. I interviewed three lawyers and someone told me about Nicholas Lotito, so I meet with him and we talked for hours, I was very impressed with his honesty, I was convinced and had no doubts or uncertainty that he was the person I needed to represent me. At the end of the trial everything worked out good. So thank you Mr. Lotito for the good work you did.
