Overview

"Timely, comprehensive communication is the foundation of my law practice."

Nick focuses his practice on litigation, with an emphasis on general liability defense along with retail and transportation litigation. He regularly helps clients resolve a wide array of matters and legal issues – premises liability, retail defense, motor vehicle casualty, wrongful death, products liability, insurance subrogation claims, and regulatory and compliance issues – in both the courtroom and at the negotiation table. 

Nick has an extensive amount of experience handling all aspects of incident response and litigation from beginning to end. This includes discovery management, document preservation, dispute resolution, motion practice, trial preparation and everything in between. Clients and colleagues alike appreciate his ability to quickly analyze situations, anticipate potential problems, and resolve issues before they escalate. What’s more, they know that he always maintains an open and fluid line of communication and that they can count on him to propose practical solutions whenever challenges arise. His client’s goals and needs are always at the forefront of his mind. 

As a member of Roetzel’s Emergency Response Team, Nick is often called on to coordinate the investigation and early response to crisis situations of varying type, size and severity.
