Attorney Nestico has long had an interest in personal injury law. At the age of 15, he was injured in a car crash when another driver failed to stop an intersection resulting in a head-on collision with another vehicle, killing the other driver. Due to the incident, Nestico spent three months in the hospital recovering from injuries to both arms, one requiring a steel rod to be surgically attached. During this time, Nestico says he and his family were vulnerable to the practices of insurance companies and were taken advantage of during one of the most difficult times in their lives. Thus, Nestico’s passion for personal injury law had manifest and led him to become a personal injury lawyer.
Attorney Nestico received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1990 and a Specialized Honors of Political Science in 1992, both from York University. He received his Juris Doctor of Law degree, graduating in the top five percent of his class and with honors, from Touro Law School in New York in 1999. During his time at Touro, Nestico completed two internships, one with a state judge and one with a federal judge. He then attended The University of Akron School of Law in Akron, Ohio, as a visiting student, where he still practices law today.
Nestico began his professional law experience with an insurance defense firm before switching to the plaintiff-side of personal injury. In 2005, along with Attorneys Kisling and Redick, Nestico became a founding partner of Kisling, Nestico & Redick. KNR has since grown from three to 26 lawyers, five to over 100 support staff, and have offices all throughout the state of Ohio.
Attorney Nestico has successfully tried cases to verdict and argued cases before the Ohio Supreme Court and 6th District Court of Appeals. He has represented over 200,000 clients in a class-action suit recovering over $27.5 million dollars and is a member of The Million Dollar Advocates Forum – an honor less than one percent of U.S. attorneys can claim. He has been recognized as a Rising Star and Super Lawyer several times by Super Lawyers Magazine and has also been voted as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer. Attorney Nestico is admitted to practice law in multiple Ohio courts and the U.S. Supreme Court and is trilingual in English, French, and Italian. He focuses his practice on personal injury and class-action lawsuits.
Attorney Nestico is a first generation American-Italian as both of his parents hail from Calabria, Italy. He lives in Summit County with his wife, Patricia, and their three children.
