"Nick has been a great resource in several key negotiations. He quickly gets to the point of an issue and expertly translates complex legal concepts and language into easy to digest terminology for the layman. I highly recommend his work product and look forward to many more years of successful contract negotiations with his health care legal expertise playing an indispensible role."

"I had the great fortune of engaging Nick as my attorney during the acquisition of my imaging center. Nick provided sage advice, helped negotiate the deal, and provided a thorough attention to detail throughout the acquisition process. He explained complex legal issues in terms that were easy to understand, and demonstrated the importance of little details that needed to be clarified in order to close the deal. Nick was fully engaged and on top of every issue throughout the process, and the closing went smoothly as scheduled. I have since sought legal advice from Nick on other occasions, and he has repeatedly demonstrated the same high level of legal service each time. I recommend Nick without hesitation, and will continue to seek out his services whenever needed."
