Tax Attorney | Aug 12
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Nick throughout his entire legal career and wholeheartedly endorse his property tax work. In addition to getting great results for his clients, Nick has become the first attorney many clients call for referrals outside his specialty, which demonstrates the level of trust his clients have in him."
Tax Attorney | Jul 16
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Nick for over fifteen years, both as a good friend and fellow attorney. Over the years, I have witnessed Nick develop into one of the elite property tax attorneys in Minnesota. Nick's ability to communicate aggressively, candidly, and fairly with county assessors and county attorneys has led to some pretty amazing settlements for his clients over the years. Whether you own an office tower or a small retail property, Nick can be a very powerful ally in your efforts to reduce your property taxes."
Real estate Attorney | May 12
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Nick is arguably the best property tax lawyer in Minnesota, and I refer clients who own or lease commercial property to Nick with the utmost confidence. I have known Nick both as a former colleague and good friend for several years, and the property tax savings he negotiates on behalf of his clients are at times mind-boggling."
