Testimonials of Pothitakis Law Firm, P.C. in Burlington, Iowa

When my family needed assistance navigating the Iowa workers compensation law, we turned to Niko's firm because of his high AVVO rating and other positive ratings on the internet. We could not have been more pleased. As a lawyer myself, I was impressed with Niko's knowledge of the area, his true compassion regarding our family's situation and his expertise during the hearing itself. Even if we had not received our desired outcome, we would have given Niko five stars based on these factors. The fact that we achieved the desired result made the process even better. Final words - if you need assistance with Iowa workers compensation issues, I cannot recommend Niko and his firm enough!
