Nicholas Elefterakis

Founding Partner, Managing Partner and General Counsel to the Firm
New York, New York
(212) 532-1176

Since founding the firm in 2010, Brooklyn born Nicholas Elefterakis has been a driving force behind the rapid growth and success of Elefterakis, Elefterakis & Panek. As Managing Partner, Nicholas oversees daily operations, leaving his indelible imprint on every case that comes through the door.

Possessing an acute skill for legal assessment of personal injury cases, Nicholas is key in organizing collaboration between the firm's attorneys in forming a comprehensive plan, and ensures all necessary investigative work is thoroughly performed prior to filing suit.

A natural communicator with a passion for personal injury law, Nicholas has successfully negotiated multiple millions of dollars in settlements for our clients during both Court conferences and formal mediations. Nicholas has a sterling reputation amongst the top rated mediators, arbitrators and judges in New York City, specializing in ensuring that if a fair resolution can be reached before trial, he will obtain it. Nicholas' ‘no-nonsense' approach to dealing with unreasonable insurance companies has aided him in securing maximum pre-trial compensation for hundreds of our clients, helping the injured avoid the stress and additional cost of trial.

Nicholas' prowess in legal writing has also gained him respect and acclaim throughout the legal community, having authored an appeal in Santiago v. JP Morgan Chase & Co. that convinced the Appellate Court to change a two decade-old approach to interpreting the law regarding recurring conditions. This change in law ensured that those injured by the negligence of building owners would be able to have their cases fairly decided by a jury of peers.
