I found Dr. Nick Oberheiden online and the moment I spoke with him, I knew he is a true federal law expert. Nick outlined a defense strategy that was so thought through and so out of this world–and he executed and delivered like I would never have imagined. Nick is unbelievably good!! Nick is the very best of the best lawyers. Hire Nick if you want a classy, smart, and extremely successful lawyer.
