Attorney Bio

Nick is a native of Winona, Minnesota. He has been a shareholder of the firm since 2011.  His practice is multi-faceted with a focus on the following areas of law:

  • Complex Civil Litigation Matters
  • Real Estate and Construction
  • Family Law Litigation
  • Probate and Trust Litigation
  • Condemnation/Eminent Domain

Immediately after law school, Nick relocated to the St. Cloud area where he has remained ever since. St. Cloud has become home, due in large part to Nick’s community involvement.

Nick takes great pride in helping his clients through what is often times the most challenging experience of their life and making the client’s feel at ease and comfortable. He believes that his no-nonsense approach to reaching effective and efficient resolutions is what makes client’s come back to him with their future legal needs and what causes them to refer their friends and family.
