Nick has spent his entire legal career representing clients in the courtroom. Rather than settle or bargain for less than what his clients deserve, Nick has taken many of the most challenging and complex cases to trial, including both bench and jury trial. At Jones Law, Nick's practice consists primarily of the following:

Civil Litigation. Personal injury (car wrecks, job site injuries, slip and falls, etc...), wrongful death, employment, contract and payment disputes, partnership (business) divorce, and lien enforcement actions.

Criminal Defense. Misdemeanor and felony charges, including DUI, possession/manufacture/sale/delivery of illegal drugs, robbery/burglary, assault/domestic assault, sex offenses, felony murder, and attempted murder.

Family Law. Divorce, paternity, custody, child support, guardianships/conservatorships, dependency and neglect, and domestic violence.

Prior to becoming an attorney, Nick served in the United States Army Infantry and served in the Airborne as a member of various Long Range Surveillance (LRSD) units, including deployments to Panama and Korea, and combat deployments in Iraq, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia in support of Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
