About Nick Dranias
CAVEAT to offered services: I am only licensed to practice law in Arizona, Illinois, Minnesota, Texas and Washington, DC, and I generally operate out of Arizona. If you do not reside in one of those locations and if your business is not based in one of those locations, I will only be able to represent you if your legal issue has some substantial connection to one of my licensed locations (such as someone you want to sue/negotiate with being located there, you desiring to establish a business presence there, or your issue somehow being governed by the law there) OR if your legal issue strictly involves federal law (such as intellectual property, taxes, tariffs, federal court litigation, constitutional law). If I can't represent you, and you live or have a business in Florida, I would recommend Susannah Savitsky, who offers legal services under Florida licensure on simbi. Otherwise, I have colleagues who are not on simbi who are licensed in California, New Mexico and North Carolina, so I can refer you to them if you reside or do business there. I also know of other reputable attorneys, not on simbi, licensed in other states.
