Nicolas began his legal career as a civil and criminal trial attorney. He worked zealously to achieve the best outcome for clients. It was a trial attorney where he first honed his counseling skills. Representing clients at a time when something had gone wrong in their lives allowed Nicolas to gain understanding and insight into changes that would have saved his clients from court. Nicolas turned that hindsight into foresight when he transitioned away from representing clients at trial and instead helping them to business successful businesses. He carries that same planning foresight into his work with his estate planning clients.
Nicolas earned his undergraduate degree, a B.S. in Regional Studies, from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in 2003. he earned his law degree from Beasley School of Law at Temple University in 2007. He earned his specialized Master of Law degree, an LL.M. in Intellectual Property, from Cardozo Law School at Yeshiva University in 2016.
