Nicholas M. Moccia, P.C.
Attorney at law


What people Are Saying

Nick V. (client)

I've been a client of Nicholas Moccia since September 2016, and he has successfully resolved several very troubling matters for me.  Nicholas seems to make a practice of under-promising but over-delivering.  First, he was able to evict non-paying tenants who were causing me and my family tremendous grief.  Nicholas warned that the eviction may take six months or more when in reality he managed to evict my tenants after only three months.   Due to the financial difficulties created by my tenants, I was unable to keep up with my mortgage and found myself in foreclosure.  Nicholas also resolved the foreclosure for me, and helped me obtain a loan modification.   Although Nicholas cautioned that it would perhaps take over a year to resolve the foreclosure, Nicholas was able to deliver quick results by securing me an affordable loan modification within six (6) months.  Nicholas carried me and my family through some very difficult times, and I highly recommend him for anyone with landlord/tenant or foreclosure difficulties.  Nicholas is a fantastic attorney.

Tommy Cheng (client)

"I hired Nicholas M Moccia, as he came highly recommended by another lawyer. I am grateful that I listened to the recommendation as Nicholas has been my lawyer now since 2014.
Nicholas is an outstanding attorney: his strong intellect, his in-depth knowledge of the law, his impressive lawyering skills, make him one of the most skilled attorneys in his field (New York City Tenant law). During my first consultation with him, I very quickly became aware of his astute mind and his in depth knowledge of the relevant law. I had clearly found a professional who set high standards of excellence for himself, and who would negotiate vigorously on my behalf."

Eva Jura - Building Owner/Manager in Brooklyn, New York (client)

"With a young property business, huge overhead costs and the usual legal liabilities to worry about, I needed a lawyer. Most lawyers I met blew a lot of hot air and cost me fortunes without completing the work needed.

"We came across Mr. Moccia, who was helpful from the start. He came right to the point, was always contactable (again, where many are not), was effective and explained everything perfectly without jargon, evasiveness or plain BS. He was able to successfully deal with the issues I had and honestly advised me on the legal battles I could not win. Many lawyers would not be so scrupulous! In so doing, he's been sensitive to my legal requirements and my tight budget.

"New York is a legal shark tank, where a good, honest lawyer is hard to find and is worth his weight in gold. So far, Mr. Moccia has been exactly that. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."

After 3 years, the banks finally gave us the loan mod we were looking for and I am 100% certain I wouldn't have gotten here without the services of Mr. Moccia. He will put in as much effort as needed to help you just as he helped me! I recommend him to everyone that needs him!"

Rick Huss, Manager, Associated Global Services (colleague)

"I know Nick on a personal level, as we belong to the same fraternal organization, the Freemasons. You can learn a lot about someone from the way they conduct themselves in a "volunteer" organization. How much of a commitment they make, how much effort they make, how they interact with others" In his short Masonic career Nick has had an big impact. He jumped into learning the material by attending workshops at night. He committed to an officer's position with a role in the business of the Lodge. He was quick to make friends with the other new members and with the "old timers". When Hurricane Sandy hit he participated in hours and hours of volunteer work with Hurricane relief in moving, sorting and distributing supplies to those hit hardest. In a very short time Nick has become a valued member of our Lodge and the Masonic Community. I'm sure he conducts his Law Practice with the same integrity and devotion to people that is simply his character. I highly recommend Nick!"
