A Personal Note From Bob Nice
“When I graduated from law school in 1985, I did what all of the graduates were told to do. I went to work for a big law firm. As a consequence, I spent my days in the library or alone in my office writing briefs and responding to motions. I never saw clients.
After six years, I’d had enough. I knew what to do; I just didn’t want to wait around for several years to have a chance to do it – so, I resigned and went off on my own.
Since our firm’s inception in 1992, we have focused on providing our clients with personal attention, whether in a courtroom or an office setting. I particularly enjoy working with investors and small business owners. As a real estate investor, as well as an attorney, I have started and managed several small businesses over the years and fully understand the sacrifices business owners make and the effort they put forward to keep their businesses in operation. It requires a great effort and can provide great satisfaction.
I invite you to call me personally to discuss how we can assist you in resolving the legal matters which you encounter in your life and in your business. We are here to help.”
