Practice areas

Nick is a dedicated attorney who values serving his community and those in need. In the fall of 2018, he founded the Curcio Law Firm to put those values into action. After gaining years of experience in one of the largest firms in Michigan, he strives to provide the same top-quality service in a more accessible and affordable way.

Nick graduated from the University of Notre Dame Law School and worked for two years as a law clerk at the U.S. Court of Appeals in Atlanta, Georgia. He and his wife Erin then moved to her native West Michigan, which is now home for their young and growing family.

Nick gives back to the West Michigan community through both personal and professional involvement. On the professional side, he serves as municipal counsel for six local municipalities: South Haven, Allegan, New Buffalo, Stevensville, Decatur, and Saugatuck Township. He also has an extensive pro bono practice, focusing on appeals and other impact litigation. Among other matters, he has successfully represented immigrants fleeing from gang violence, a local resident fighting unlawful eviction, and a nonprofit land-conservancy in a contentious real estate dispute.

On the personal side, Nick is active in his parish and local schools. He currently serves as an assistant wrestling coach at West Catholic High School in Grand Rapids and as the athletic director of St. Mary’s School in Spring Lake. Nick is also an accomplished martial artist, holding a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Nick enjoys spending the rest of his time with his wife Erin and five young children: Charlie, Ben, Michael, Jack, and Joni.

Great Experience - Highly Recommended
Nick was an amazing part of our legal team. We also knew he was working hard on our behalf and he really made the experience as positive as it could be under the circumstances. We were always being supported in our interests and would definitely use him and his firm again for any of our future legal needs.

I am beyond grateful for the way Nick stepped up and handled our case. His knowledge of the law and willingness to go the extra mile is invaluable. He is respectful, professional, and knows how to handle issues in the upper courts with confidence. He is trustworthy and I would recommend him to anyone!

Knowledgeable & Attentive
Nick is very knowledgeable of the laws surrounding municipalities and zoning. He was also extremely qualified to represent us beyond in appeals. He is very quick to respond and thorough in answering our questions. We would’ve been lost without him and were very grateful he represented us.

Curcio Law Firm issues legal opinion to the Pontiac City Clerk that validates Clerk's decision about medical marihuana zoning
I hired Nick Curcio, Esq. to draft independent legal opinions about medical marihuana and the Pontiac Planning Commission. Attorney Curcio's opinion on locational requirements for marijuana growers and processors confirmed my decision as the Clerk that the Pontiac Medical Marihuana Zoning Ordinance limits growers and processors to locating into two overlay districts. I found Attorney Curcio to be very knowledgeable about both municipal and zoning law. I highly recommend him as a municipal zoning lawyer.
