    Nick is at ease and thus so is the client. He comes across as trusted and not rushed. He is well schooled and knows strategy and insight. Nick offers clear counsel objective direction. I enjoyed my dealings and would recommend and use his firm again.
    Good guy!

  • Non-Compete Agreement Expert

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Paul

    I was presented with a very complicated non-compete from a prospective employer. I needed an expert opinion and engaged Attorney Nicholas McLeod of the Alan Olson Law Firm to review the document. I want to start this review by stating emphatically that I would highly recommend Nick to anyone who is faced with signing a non-compete. He is an expert in Wisconsin non-compete laws, and what they mean from a legal and practical standpoint. I deal with many attorneys in my profession, and in his area of expertise I believe that he is one of the best around.

    Nick started the meeting by carefully explaining to me the five components that constitute a valid non-compete in WI, and what a non-compete means from a practical perspective. His explanation was extremely beneficial in setting the stage for our subsequent discussions.

    Nick took the time to walk me through each provision of the non-compete, explaining the ramification of each, and thoroughly answered all of my many questions. He explained to me what would happen in the event that the non-compete was ever enforced, and what my options may be at that time. Nick expressed the seriousness of the document and advised me to approach the agreement from the perspective that it will be enforced. He explained the non-compete and framed it in a way that I could understand, and gave me the insight and advice I needed to help with my decision on whether or not to sign the document.

    What was most helpful is that Nick gave me two strategies to employ in negotiating the non-compete with the employer that never would have occurred to me on my own. He also pointed out a prevailing attorney’s fees provision that could be very costly to me if the non-compete was ever disputed, and gave me advice on how to make the provision more equitable. Had I not met with Nick, I may have signed a document that could have serious financial consequences for me and my family. Nick’s advice and recommendations are worth far more than the cost of the consultation.

    I could not be more pleased with Nick’s work and feel very fortunate that we met.

    I hired Attorney McCleod because I was denied unemployment due to false information give to the State by the company I worked for. He was very helpful and responded quickly to any concerns I had. I have already recommended him to several people.

    I had hired Mr. McLeod for my UI appeal, and won.
    I had been let go by my now ex employer for no real actual justifiable reasons and yet was denied unemployment benifits. I knew I needed assistance in the matter. Words, legal and political things are not my strong suite. I had met with Mr. McLeod, after a few questions answered on the phone. He felt I had a good case, we met in person for a consultation and went over all the details. He then walked me trough the process- weather or not I chose to hire him - it was part of him educating me. It was very similar to what he has upon the web site, with a bit more impertinent information. I still chose to hire him for many reasons, he has a great track record, he was sincere, I am not a word sort of person- and legal things are not my strong suite,I did not want to be pushed around in court and get ran over. We met a little before the hearing time on the same day. I am so glad I had hired him, not just because we won, but if I had not I don't think I would have had much of a chance. There were a few hick ups in my case, such when he requested my UI file, UI sent it to my ex employer instead of my attorney, and then UI did not sent him the whole file and in addition to that he finally received it the evening before my hearing. I feel I would have had no chance if I had gone in it alone. Yet he took control over the situation and got things resolved. Having someone such as Mr. McLeod represent me was well worth it. He crossed his T's and dotted his I's.

    Nick McLeod was an excellent advocate for me in reaching a settlement over an employment contract dispute. We reached a great settlement within a very short timeframe. He listened, provided great advice and insight. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I would not hesitate to refer any of my friends to Nick and Alan C. Olson & Assoc for employment related issues.

    I am very grateful for the representation provided to me by Attorney Nick McLeod and Alan C Olson & Associates, S.C. I contacted various firms to determine if I even had a case. The other firms I originally talked to had legal assistants or inexperienced attorneys take the call, they were unable to provide any feedback, and just tried to get me in there for a paid consultation.

    When Attorney Alan Olson took my call, he listened, asked questions, determined that I have a potential case, the possible outcome and most importantly, what it would cost me. He also returned various other calls from me to answer my questions. When I was ready to come in for a consultation, it was at my request, not his.

    Nick McLeod was working with Alan on my case and eventually took the lead on it moving forward. He was very knowledgeable of my case and really proved his expertise in depositions of the opposing party. He was extremely thorough in his questions and brought out information that I didn't even know. After one of three depositions that day, I knew I was in great hands with a great attorney. Nick not only got the key defendant to admit he was dishonest once, but TWICE!

    From the moment they took my case, they were committed to my matter, provided great representation and a very impressive outcome.
    Well done Nick!

    Mr. McLeod and the Alan Olson Law firm had went above and beyond my expectations! Mr. McLeod kept in great contact me while resolving issues with a former employer. I never once felt pressure to make any decisions and I was always able to get a clear answer on anything I wasn't understanding! Mr. McLeod had resolved the issues in a faster time than I had expected but had also clearly looked out for my best interests during the whole process as well. I could not Thank this law firm enough! And I would recommend Mr. McLeod to anyone!
