Nicholas Tzaneteas, a New York City personal injury lawyer helping the seriously injured in all five boroughs

Nicholas Tzaneteas has been a practicing personal injury attorney in New York City for over two decades and has earned a reputation as a fighter and an advocate for those who have been seriously injured at the fault of others. He is not afraid to stand up to the city; corporations; insurance companies to fight for the rights of his clients. When other lawyers may avoid cases because they are hard to prove or difficult because the opposition has big money and is representing longstanding, influential institutions, Mr. Tzaneteas has always been anxious to take up the challenge and turn over every stone to make his case at his own expense of time and money. Nicholas Tzaneteas only takes cases where there are serious injuries caused by the fault of someone’s mistakes or negligence. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island or Manhattan, give us a call. Attorney Tzaneteas will talk to you and determine whether you have a case or not. If he does take your case, he will work tirelessly to make sure he has all the medical records, documentation, eye witness and police reports he needs to make the strongest case and be your best advocate, all at no expense to you. We don’t get paid anything unless we get compensation for your injuries.
