Russell Nicolet has learned a lot about gratitude, working, and enjoying life from the long generation of farmers in his family. He’s also inspired by his father, who taught him to take pride in his work, and his mother, who taught him empathy and kindness. With all this woven into him, Nicolet set out on his legal journey and was the first person in his family to graduate from law school.
He founded Nicolet Law in 2007 and soon his brothers, sister, and eventually his mother all joined him at the firm.
“I think what my clients like about me and what has helped me be successful, is that I am just a normal guy that happens to have a law degree,” he said. “I talk to my clients like they were a friend or family member, and more importantly, I treat their case as if they were a family member or close friend,” Nicolet added.
When asked what his favorite part of his job is, he said, “it’s simple. Helping the community, giving back, providing good jobs, and knowing that good people need his help when they or a loved one are injured. Getting life-changing verdicts and settlements is what keeps Nicolet fueled to continue the fight for justice.”
Nicolet said, “Both myself and the rest of the great people at Nicolet Law will be there to take care of those folks and get them through the legal process surrounding an injury.”
