Best of the Best
Russell Nicolet is truly the best of the best. He is trustworthy, and man of integrity, character and compassion. From my initial phone call to the day we settled, he answered my unending questions, eased my anxieties and walked me through every step of the way. I had medical bills from the car accident piling up even before I was discharged from the hospital. I handed everything over to Russell and he took care of it all. He battled the insurance company head on when they tried to minimize the depth of my injuries, and through his persistence we got the maximum settlement possible. My car accident changed my life. I am forever grateful to Russel and his entire team for their expertise, dedication and guidance throughout the entire process.

Did a fantastic job.
I was very impressed with Russell Nicolet. Very professional, and always made me feel like he had time for whatever questions I had. He made what could have been a very stressful situation much easier. He went above and beyond what was just needed in my case. I highly recommend Russell Nicolet.

Getting hit head-on by a drunk driver was scary...
Russell and his team have gained my utmost respect. Getting injured seriously is scary. Suffering a head injury and being unable to think clearly makes it that much worse. A year and a half after having been hit head-on by a drunk driver, Russell and his team have represented and fought for me...and I couldn't be happier with how he handled this. He was an advocate for me since day one, took the heat off of me (from the other party's attorneys), and has gotten me a very fair settlement. I give him my highest recommendation. If you're thinking about it, go with won't be disappointed.

The best!
I thought Russell and his team did an excellent job. He was able to take a distressing situation and make it quite painless with care and no judgement. I was confident in his skills, knowledge and ability to take care of everything. I never had to wait long for a response to a question or for paperwork to be completed. I highly recommend him.

Russell was so helpful and extremely knowledgable. He was very professional and made me feel so comfortable in a stressful situation. I would HIGHLY recommend him to everyone and I would choose to hire him all over again if I had to. I honestly couldn't say enough good things about him.

Excellent and professional legal services!
I couldn't say better things about Mr. Nicolet. Very prompt and attentive to my needs and concerns. He is very professional and responded to my emails quickly. He treated me as if I were his only client even when I knew he was busy. He is very knowledgeable and I trusted him to take care of my case. He treated me with empathy and respect during this very difficult time and I thank him and his staff for that. Thank you, Russell!
