CDH Law Welcomes New Associate Attorney Nicolas Hurtado

By David Hammond

Syracuse, New York – CDH Law is proud to announce the arrival of Nicolas Hurtado as our newest Associate Attorney.  Nicolas brings a wealth of litigation experience to CDH Law. Hailing from Bogota, Colombia, where he has been practicing criminal defense, compliance, and helping victims of domestic violence for eight years, Nicolas has been involved in numerous high-profile cases. He defended a former congressman charged as a co-conspirator of one of Colombia’s ex-presidents, he argued before the Supreme Court, and he was a defense attorney in a case the press called the biggest corruption case in Colombia, to name only a few.

Nicolas was also a Professor of Law at one of Bogota’s best universities, where he taught Criminal Procedure and Evidence.  Just this month, Nicolas was honored by inclusion on Legal 500’s shortlist for the Rising Star of the Year in Compliance award, an award reserved for the highest achievers in this practice area. While Nicolas’ immense experience allows him to represent any client, as a native Spanish speaker, Nicolas is particularly suited to serve the growing upstate New York Hispanic and Latino population.

We are confident that Nicolas’ extensive background and dedication will greatly enhance our commitment to providing exceptional legal services to our clients.
