Nick @ Work

Nick has recently joined Castle Law where he manages the prosecution of criminal matters for local entities. Prior to joining Castle Law Nick worked the majority of his career in criminal law both as a public defender for Will County and an Assistant State's Attorney for LaSalle County, IL.

When not in court for his clients, Nick is usually coaching Illinois' future lawyers with the UIC School of Law's mock trial program. Nick has continued to coach law students since his own graduation in 2014 and he is excited to bring his expertise and experience to Castle Law.

Nick @ Play

Outside of court (or the mock court) Nick is usually exploring the outdoors with his wife, Rachel (also an attorney), and their son, Andor.  Otherwise you can find him training for some kind of sport. Over the years Nick has taken up rugby, boxing, crossfit, Yoga, Jui Jitsu, and a ton of races that run the gamut of distances- so he is always training for something.
