NIALENA CARAVASOS ESQ. - LAW OFFICE OF NIALENA CARAVASOS, LLC REVIEWS
I first spoke with NiaLena when she contacted me about being local counsel for her in the Eastern District of Virginia. I could immediately tell that she was an incredibly dedicated and knowledgeable attorney, and that working with her would be an honor. My instincts proved correct four years later as the case continued far beyond the length we anticipated. NiaLena not only cares about her client's case, but also her client personally, and it shows in the results. Where other attorneys may have merely checked the boxes on the representation, NiaLena dedicated every ounce of her energy to ensure a positive outcome for the client. She worked tirelessly when communicating with the prosecutor, analyzing the case, and preparing her client. Even tasks as mundane as travel arrangements were made with the care she would offer to a member of her own family. The result was incredible - the best possible outcome in the case for her client. Even the prosecutor expressed words of admiration for NiaLena's advocacy. One never knows how a case will ultimately proceed, but one can know that they are in good hands with NiaLena as their advocate.
Facing charges in a criminal case is anxiety ridden and devastating. When NiaLena contacted me to be local counsel on a white collar criminal matter in federal court in Virginia, I knew that she embodied everything one would want in an attorney as they navigated this daunting process. She is compassionate, fearless, knowledgeable, and thorough. The case went on far longer than anyone expected -- years -- and NiaLena never ceased to amaze me with her advocacy. She treated every issue, no matter how minor, with the same care she would have for a member of her own family. Not one element was ever overlooked, and the end result was amazing. Through her hard work understanding the case, getting to know the client, interfacing with the government, and presentation to the Judge, she truly achieved the best possible outcome. Even the government recognized her impressive skills. I was proud to stand next to her in court.
October 12, 2021 NiaLena is a wonderful lawyer. Anyone who has a chance to communicate with her won’t go no further because she is the one. She is a human bean before being a lawyer. She is very caring, very compassionate, very helpful, and very respectful. When you talk to her, she talk back to you. If you ask her for help, she will help you out, or if she can not help out she will refer you to someone who can help you out. In conclusion I would say she’s a lifesaver.
