I had the privilege of clerking for Nick and Larry during law school. Now being a practicing lawyer myself, I can wholeheartedly say that Nick's work is the model of excellence in the field and what every family lawyer should strive to emulate. I consider myself very lucky to call Nick my mentor and friend.
