Biography

Nick was born and raised in Grand Rapids, and his first job was as a caddy at Cascade Hills Country Club. He attended Aquinas College, where he studied America History and graduated summa cum laude. Nick also ran track and field at Aquinas College for four years, earning multiple All-American and Academic-All America honors, as well as setting school records in the hammer throw and 35lb weight throw. While in law school, Nick served on Law Review as a Senior Associate Editor and later obtained a prestigious internship with the Michigan Supreme Court, working for the much-honored Justice Elizabeth Weaver. Upon graduating from Law School, Nick clerked for Michigan Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway, and then worked for the Michigan Court of Appeals as a research attorney. Nick has worked with Genie since 2013, and he was named one of Michigan Lawyers Weekly's Up and Coming Lawyers in 2014, and has been named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers each year since 2020. He is an especially keen brief writer and quite skilled at legal research. He went to law school knowing that he wanted to work on the side of plaintiffs, and is delighted that he is able to do that in his own hometown in West Michigan. He has a lovely wife and two young daughters who occupy his time away from the law.
