M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers was the first ever law firm to partner with the Los Angeles Kings National Hockey League team. The ground-breaking and unprecedented partnership was designed to bring even more aid and awareness to California injury victims through the use of multi-media platforms and community events.
Nick elected to practice plaintiff’s personal injury law because personal injury victims are often the most vulnerable people who need legal representation the most. These victims have just undergone a serious injury and are not in a position to bring a personal injury claim and/or pursue a lawsuit. Also, because most people are unfamiliar with their rights in connection with a personal injury claim, the other side, which is almost always a billion-dollar insurance company, may take advantage of them by either denying their claim or offering to pay them much less than their claim is worth. This is where M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers steps into the case to ensure all of their clients’ rights are protected and that all clients get just and full compensation.
Nick presently represents wrongful death heirs and Plaintiff’s throughout the state of California that have been injured in every conceivable type of accident involving the negligence of another party. These include, but are not limited to, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, trucking accidents, premises liability cases, and animal attacks. Nick works tirelessly to ensure each and every client gets just compensation and all necessary medical treatment so that they are made whole from the losses they sustained as result of the accident.
Prior to co-founding M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers, Nick worked at an elite law firm in west Los Angeles. While there, Nick represented Hilton Hotels Worldwide, Inc. (the world’s largest hotel company), Apartment Investment and Management Company (one of the nation’s largest owners and operators of apartment communities), Anschutz Entertainment Group (one of the leading sports and entertainment presenters in the world and the owner of the Staples Center), and Union Carbide Corporation (a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company).
Nick received his Juris Doctorate from Loyola Law School in downtown Los Angeles in 2004 and graduated Cum Laude with Order of the Coif Honors. While at Loyola Law School, Nick was an Editor on the Entertainment Law Review and volunteered at the Disability Rights Legal Center, an organization that champions the civil rights of people with disabilities through advocacy, education and litigation. While in law school, Nick also served as an extern at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. In 2004, Nick received the Commercial Law Student of the Year Award from the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
