SM: "After several highly serious allegations where made against myself, it was recommended that I should approach this firm. How right this was proven to be! Nicolas Nimmo was appointed as my point of contact and guided me through all aspects of my case, his profile truly describes this gentleman well. Thanks to the work, dedication and preparation carried out and those that worked behind the scenes leading up to and during the trial, I was completely exonerated on all charges and acquitted. I truly struggle to express in words my thanks to everyone at Beltrami & Co. Again, I highly recommend this firm and the services they provide."
