After growing up in Walnut Creek and graduating from Las Lomas High School in 1987, Nick received his undergraduate degree in 1991 from the University of California, Riverside with a BA in History and Law, and his law degree from the University of Dayton. He wrote for and edited the Dayton Law Review, played on the intercollegiate club volleyball team and graduated from UD with honors in 1995.

He started his legal practice in Walnut Creek in 1996, with a focus on real estate and business transactions and litigation. During those early years, much time was spent assisting residential and commercial landlords with lease transactions and disputes, including an extensive unlawful detainer practice. In 1999, Nick transitioned to Concord, and while working for a small law firm expanded his practice to include more extensive litigation, as well as land use planning and entitlement work, construction law, and addressing all manner of real estate acquisition and ownership issues. During this time Nick started representing several local homebuilders, who he has continued to represent over the years.

Now with 24 years of experience in the practice of law, Nick represents clients on a broad range of matters, including drafting and enforcing residential and commercial leases, acquisition and sale of vacant and developed real property, mechanic’s lien enforcement, land use planning and development, CEQA compliance and permitting, business entity formation, disputes and termination, and real estate and business litigation.

Nick lives in Martinez with his wife, and when he is not working or spending time with his family you may find him on the golf course, on his bike, or in the garden.
