Pothitakis Law is the best in South East Iowa. Niko managed to get me a VERY Large settlement on a Workman's Comp Case. Niko always presented me with options that I could clearly understand. His attention to detail and knowledge of the law allowed me to walk away with a most satisfying settlement. 


I could never have gotten the money to cover my current and future medical bills without the help of your law office. Even though my case was not large, Niko seemed concerned for me and kept me informed on any issues that arose.  


I was made to feel at ease from day one. Every single step along the way some one explained the process and what was to happen next. I was never made to feel like just another number. Great job girls. It is a hard job putting a bigger ribbon on such a well oiled machine. I may need grief counsel, as I'll miss you all like family. God Bless you all and thank you once again.


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!
