The Nicolet Law story starts in 2007 when Russell Nicolet hung his own shingle in a small, one-room office in Hudson, Wisconsin. From the start, the firm has been committed to helping individuals and families navigate through difficult legal issues related to their health, their finances, and their overall wellbeing.
Before he became a lawyer, Russell worked as an intern for the public defender’s office, as a law clerk for a Minnesota judge, and a law clerk for a local attorney. As a young lawyer, Russell would spend hours doing legal research at the Washington County Law Library to give his clients any possible advantage, along with saving them the cost of paying for high priced legal research programs. These experiences built his knowledge and gave him a unique view of all aspects of what clients may have to deal with a wide range of difficult legal issues.
When he founded Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, Russell combined this legal knowledge with a strong work ethic and an emphasis on serving the community. His focus on making sure that those in the community receive the help they need when facing some of life’s toughest situations meant that Russell often took on difficult cases that other attorneys may have passed on. Russell worked relentlessly to build Nicolet Law Office so that his clients would have access to a law firm that delivers high-quality results with a client-first approach.
Over the next decade, Nicolet Law continued to be a trusted resource for clients in the Hudson area. Along the way, we added offices in Eau Claire, Superior and many other cities throughout Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota. Our existing offices expanded as we brought on more attorneys to serve our growing client base and continued to work hard to ensure those with legal needs got the representation they deserved. Our practice areas expanded along with our offices, growing from a primary focus on bankruptcy law to include (and now focus exclusively on) personal injury cases, workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability (SSDI) law.
Today, we are a truly regional firm that is known as a premier resource for those who have been injured in an accident, hurt at work, or need help with SSDI benefits. With 20 team members in nine locations throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota, we combine the resources and convenience of a large regional firm with the personalized service that you expect from local attorneys.
We strive to be more than just attorneys and legal professionals in the communities we serve. We live in these towns, send our kids to the local schools, and run or participate in a variety or community service initiatives in those areas. This close integration with our friends, neighbors, and fellow community members means that when someone hires Nicolet Law Firm, they aren’t just treated as a number, they are treated like family, and they know that they are working with a local attorney they can trust.
As we continue to grow and assist clients in more places throughout the area, the team at Nicolet Law stays true to our founding principles: serving those who are facing difficult legal situations, seeking to deliver the best possible results for our clients and offering the best possible client service.
We’ve adopted the hashtag #NicoletKnows to represent our approach to the law and to how we serve our clients. We use it because at our firm:
