About Me

I am Board Certified in Criminal Trial Law by the Florida Bar.  Only Board Certified Lawyers can refer to themselves as experts.  There are more than 100,000 lawyers in Florida and less than 400 lawyers have that certification.  


My journey in Gainesville began in 1995 when I became a Gator in undergraduated school.  In law school, I fell in love with trial work.  I was on the trial team and found my first job out of school with one of my trial team coaches.  Soon after graduating, I started coaching trial team myself and began focusing on providing criminal defense for people in Gainesville.  


Today I still provide criminal defense to those accused of crimes.  I also use my courtroom skills to help people injured in automobile accidents.  I also enjoying spend time teaching at the law school and meeting with local community groups to discuss issues in the law.  


I really enjoy working in and being a part of this community.  I have spent more than half my life in Gainesville and I do truly consider myself lucky to call this home.

  • Kelly Renz Mcneal

    I endorse this lawyer. I have referred clients with criminal cases to Nick. He is incredibly knowledgeable and quick to respond to client concerns/questions. We co-counseled on a domestic violence case. Great to work with. I was very impressed with his legal abilities and concern for the client.

  • Adam S. Vorhis

    I cannot endorse Nick more highly. He is extremely diligent on every single case whether it is a misdemeanor traffic case or a serious felony charge. He is always readily available to speak to his clients when they need help. He is one of the best trial lawyers in Gainesville if not the State of Florida.
