About Me

Nick started his legal career by clerking for a prominent firm in Columbus, Ohio in 1997.  He then went on to Law School at Capital University graduating in the Top 10% of his class with honors.  He currently represents both individuals and businesses before numerous Courts in Ohio including Common Pleas Courts, Courts of Appeal, Federal District Courts, and the Ohio Supreme Court.  He also practices before administrative agencies in the State of Ohio.  He focuses primarily on employment and family law, juvenile law, and contract disputes. Nick approaches law with his professional concept that attorneys should not only perform as legal counselors acting as "problem solvers" but also must be proactive, preventing problems before they occur.
