About Nick

A Bronx native, Nick is a fearless and respected litigator known for his tenacious and zealous advocacy skills. His distinguished reputation precedes him in every courthouse in New York, where judges respect his ability and professionalism and defense attorneys fear his uncanny ability to secure huge verdicts – and for good reason. Nick has won some of the largest jury verdicts on record and has secured hundreds of millions of dollars for his clients. His results have appeared in the New York Law Journal, New York Magazine, New York Jury Reporter, and the National Jury Verdict Reporter. Since 2013, New York Magazine has named him a “Superlawyer” for his consistent ability to win for his clients year after year.

Nick has represented victims of serious auto accidents as well as hard working workers in the construction field. His representation has benefited workers from all trades, including carpenters, plumbers, electricians, steamfitters, laborers, and sheet metal workers.

Nick holds the distinction of serving on both the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee for the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, in addition to serving as Vice-Chair of the Labor Law Committee. This distinguished committee is made up of top-tier labor law litigators statewide and is tasked with ensuring that laws impacting the safety and welfare of construction workers are applied fairly and evenly.

In addition, even though Nick’s representation of accident victims and construction workers has taken him throughout the State, he continues to be known as a familiar, friendly face – always a hometown guy, willing to get involved and lend a hand. So much so, in fact, that Nick has been named one of the top 50 most influential people in Bronx politics.

The Carrion Law Firm is thrilled to have Nick Of Counsel to our firm.
