Great lawyet
Benjamin was very professional, he responded to me right away everytime I called or emailed. The paperwork he presented was unbelievably perfect allowing me to get as much money as I was able to get. I would always recommend Ben for how professional he is, and how hard he worked for me.

Great Find
I took a three-month contract to work about four hours from home. While there I was attacked by a dog while taking a walk. I did not know any lawyers licensed in the state where I was bitten. I called multiple lawyers from a Google search. Benjamin Nicolet was quick to respond. I hired Mr. Nicolet because he was a calm, supportive listener as I was still emotionally processing the attack. As we progressed through the case, he was quick to respond, thoroughly explained each step, and calmly answered all of my questions. When discussing anything complex, he easily put things in laymen's terms so I could understand.

Uninsured motorist
I was involved in an accident when a object came out of the back of a pickup truck. It hit my motorcycle on the expressway and knocked me down at 70 mph. The driver never stopped and was never found. I called my insurance and told them what happened and they did get my bike fixed and paid some of my bills. I had uninsured coverage but was told by my insurance company that I needed to know the name of the driver before they could invoke that part of my policy and since I did not know the drivers of the truck I assumed that I would not be covered. I contacted Benjamin and he assured me that the insurance company was responsible for it and was able to get me the full amount of the coverage. Without his help I would of accepted the answer from the insurance and never received my fair share of what was coming to me. He contacted them and put a letter together and was able to get me the full amount of my policy. He did this all in record time as well. Benjamin did a great job for me and I could not be happier with the performance of the Nicolet Law firm.
