In addition, Nicholas has significant experience in handling estate work. He strongly believes that personal contact between an attorney and client is instrumental in obtaining effective and strategic representation.
Nicholas is an active trial attorney who understands that detailed deposition preparation, coupled with aggressive cross examination of witnesses often force opposing counsel to reevaluate their liability and damage positions downward. He practices in the area of premises liability, having represented some of the largest and local shopping mall owners and commercial maintenance companies. He also practices in the field of motor vehicle, bad faith, trucking and estate matters. Nicholas has conducted seminars educating claims adjusters to proactively handle their cases to promote prompt settlement and avoidance of bad faith litigation.
