Attorney Emily Oczytko

Associate Attorney

Born and raised in Buffalo, New York, Attorney Emily L. Oczytko received a four-year NCAA athletic scholarship at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, where she received her undergraduate degree. After receiving her degree in Criminal Justice and Political Science with a minor in Pre-Law, she came back home to receive her Juris Doctor from The University at Buffalo School of Law. 

 Ms. Oczytko brings a wealth of knowledge to our practice.  Prior to attending law school, Emily worked as a law clerk and paralegal for several years at a personal injury firm.  That unique experience enabled Emily to observe a case from inception, through the full legal process, and work on each step along the way to conclusion.

 In addition, Emily is proud to have organized a donation drive to the Family Justice Center in 2023 after working with victims of Domestic Violence.  She also helped create the Western New York Women’s Foundation Voter Education Guide in 2022. 

 Emily handles all areas of personal injury on behalf of persons harmed as a result of the negligence of others, including car crashes, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, dog bites, and slip/trip and fall incidents, among others. She is admitted to the New York State Bar.

 Emily looks forward to pursuing her passion for justice to help injured persons in the Western New York community, and advocate for them to receive the full compensation they deserve.

“Rick Nicotra has been a constant in my life the last several years as I’ve had the misfortune of being involved in multiple accidents. Due to some unfortunate personal circumstances, I did not follow through and quite frankly, did not think much about it. Rick called to advise me that he was trying to get a settlement. The case was resolved in short order. His compassion and understanding of my situation was truly touching. I will forever be grateful and will wholeheartedly recommend him if someone close to me ever needs an advocate.”

His staff is super friendly and always helpful with any questions or concerns that I had. Thank you, Rick, for all of your hard work in helping me through this difficult time.”

“Rick knows what he is doing! He fought with all he had for me. Got it settled before most do. My only complaint is how long it took. But a lawsuit isn’t a fast thing. And that’s not ricks fault! He is the best. And I highly recommend him if you really want a lawyer to get the most they can for you!”

There is no one else I would trust with my family and friends case. I know from personal experience that their case is in good hands with Rick. He treats all his cases as if he was representing his own family and friends.”
