Compassionate Legal Counsel Serving Upstate New York Get in contact


To put in words how Mr. Nichols helped with a case that was a classic “David versus Goliath” is no easy feat. I met him two months after losing my husband of 20+ years. His knowledge, his patience, his demeanor made me feel so at ease that even now that he has won my case, I still feel like I need to call him just to say “how are you”. Not many lawyers make you feel so secure.

Smooth and Stress Free

Going through the Immigration process would have been very stressful but with the help of Nichols Law Offices, PLLC it was very smooth and stress free. They are very organized, knowledgeable and helpful. My husband and I felt welcomed from the moment we stepped into their office. They gave us solid advice on how to proceed after each step and what documents we would need to provide. They helped us with the immigration process and with the removal of conditional status. We would definitely approach them again to complete the naturalization process. Thank you.

Nichols law offices are my legal representatives for around 12 years now. Working with them this long made me feel like I’m part of the family. Mr Nichols, Hadisa, Nicole, Natalie and others were there for me and my family in every legal need. Craig was our immigration attorney with whom we passed all stages from working visa till naturalization process. Not just that but any other legal advice or case he was there for us and we recommended him to our friends even from other states. You can say that Craig is not your “one time” attorney but someone who you ask for help whenever you need legal help. Do I need to say more?

Mr. Nichols is an excellent lawyer. He is very detailed in his work and makes things easy to understand for his clients. He helped me through a difficult situation in 2016 and was there for me and my family in a time of need. His knowledge of the law is second to none and he is an incredible negotiator as well.

Not only is he a superb lawyer, but he is also a great human being. He treats his clients with the utmost respect and appreciation and you can tell he really cares about helping his clients. I highly recommend him!!

Dear Craig Nichols & Associates,

Words cannot describe the amount of gratitude my family and I have for all your help. Your confidence and positive outlook continually provided us with a sense of hope and security. Even during our darkest thoughts and worst fears, we knew we could look to your team to reassure us that everything was going to work out. Your compassion was invaluable and we are so grateful. Because of you, our family can continue to share the little moments such as Sunday night dinners, along with milestones such as weddings and graduations. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

I cannot speak highly enough of Nichols Law Offices. We are not related. Craig worked hard to obtain my US citizenship which was a difficult task. In turn that assisted my Australian born daughter to be recognized as a US citizen as well.

They provide excellent services and they care about their clients. They take the time and make things easy for you to understand. First when I went to their office I had no idea what I was doing and know nothing about petitioning. They took the time sat down with me and helped me understand. Every time I have a question or a concern they Answer the phone right away and answer my questions to the best of their ability which I am satisfied most of the time. I am a very happy customer. I recommend them to anyone trying to help their loved ones. Like me I am just a daughter trying to help her parents and they made it possible to reach my dream to see my parents have a green card. Thanks Mr Nichols and especially thanks a lot Hadisa for being with me every step of the way.

I grew up in Central New York and my best friend's father has been my "go to" for legal guidance as he has practiced law in CNY for several decades. My wife is from Turkey and during the immigration process, I asked him for a referral. He mentioned Craig Nichols immediately, as well as another option who had decided not to work immigration cases considering their complexity and difficulty.

While my wife and I had already submitted our application for the K-1 visa ourselves, Craig was happy to take us on as clients throughout her immigration and her subsequent application for permanent residence. Looking back on this journey, the process would have been exponentially more difficult, stressful, and uncertain without Craig Nichols and his team by our side. The immigration process can be extremely ambiguous and messy. The right course of action is not always obvious. When your marriage and your future are on the line, it is daunting to make ANY decisions without professional support. Luckily, we did not have to because Craig and the team at Nichols Law were there EVERY STEP of the way!

I'm happy to say that my wife is now officially a permanent resident and has been working for a few months now. We will be forever grateful for the legal representation and support that Craig has given us. Now we are going to bring on my sister-in-law as a client so that she can rest easy knowing that we are doing everything we possibly can to help her visa/immigration process.

In my opinion. you will not find any better council for immigration purposes than at Nichols Law Offices.

We hired Mr. Nichols for several immigration cases and the process has been very smooth and straight forward because of the team’s diligence and responsiveness. Our cases had some difficulties in them, yet, from the beginning Mr. Nichols explained all of our options. We would certainly recommend Nichols Law Offices for anyone in search of reliable, professional, and knowledgable council.

Dear Craig,
I am writing to thank you and your staff for the continued and unwavering work that was done on my case over the last 6 years. Your patience and personal understanding of my situation is very refreshing in this fast paced world of, not much caring. Not being familiar with the legal system in matters such as this, you are to be commended in taking time in explaining what to expect and what, “not to expect” with my case. Your professionalism, I believe made all the difference in the favorable outcome of my very difficult case. I wish there were more people like you, who actually care about their clients and treated them as professionally as you treated me.

Thank you again for all your help. You can be assured that I will recommend your law firm to any of my friends and business associates.

As most people know, one of the most daunting parts of wanting to move to the United States from another country is the immigration process. Not only do you have to handle hundreds of pages of information but you also have to follow a strict process to ensure you’re not missing any information that could potentially hinder your case. My husband and I are both so incredibly grateful for Craig and his team. There is absolutely no way we could have possibly done this with out him. Not only were we prepared on paper but we FELT prepared ourselves. We had full confidence in Craig and his team as they were always responsive to our questions and concerns no matter how small they were. Potentially one of the most helpful things that Craig goes out of his way to do, is contacting you prior to your big interview and ensure you know what to bring, wear and information you should expect to provide. Craig is very personable and understanding of all situations, he works with everyone in the best of his ability. I feel so lucky to have found him during this stressful process! Thanks again, Craig! We’ll certainly see you when it comes time for my citizenship! I will always highly recommend Craig and his team for anyone who needs representation!!

Dear Craig and co.

This is a long overdue expression of thanks for all the hard work you put into my case. Your entire team fought for me a battle that I would never have been able to navigate; I felt as though you all were personally invested in my best interests. There were many hiccups but you handled them so well, with professionalism and tact. Thank you for always being honest with me and for fighting for me when things looked bleak. As I said to you before, you were a tool in the Lord’s hands on my behalf. I would recommend you to anyone. Thank you.
