“I wanted to...let you know how great a job Nicholas did last evening. He was confident and articulate, took the time to answer questions of the Directors and called each one by name when addressing them - he was patient and understanding. After the testimony by both parties Nicholas laid out a compromise that the Directors approved. He is an asset to your firm." - A Condo Client

Nick's Clients:
Nick works exclusively with Condominium and Homeowners Associations.


If you weren't an attorney, what would you be?
An entrepreneur. Devising new solutions (the simpler, the better) to everyday problems is exciting to me.
What's your favorite book?
Jack London is one of my favorite authors and his book "The Sea Wolf" has withstood the test of time as my favorite.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
If a brilliant new commuting method is devised, I wouldn't mind spending 2-3 months per year in the Wisconsin Northwoods. Otherwise, boring though it may seem, I'm pretty happy right here in Chicago.
