Before joining Foley, Baron, Metzger & Juip, Nick worked for a Detroit-area law firm primarily engaged in civil litigation. He has extensive trial experience in the area of individual and small business bankruptcy, financial management and turnaround management.
While in law school, Nick served as president of the Environmental Law Society and Chief Notes Editor of the Texas Environmental Law Journal. During law school, he served in internships with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the US Environmental Protection Agency, the Lower Colorado River Authority, and an environmental and land management law firm in Austin, Texas.
Nick is a member of the State Bar of Michigan, including the Environmental and Young Lawyers Sections, and is a member of the Turnaround Management Association (TMA).
Nick spends his spare time competing in board games (some of his recent favorite games are Puerto Rico and Settlers of Catan) and trying new recipes with friends in his cooking club (he makes a mean Green Curry Chicken!). He reserves his real competitive streak for his weekly adult soccer game as part of the Detroit City Futbol League, a league born out of a desire to bring together Detroit’s distinct neighborhoods for competition and fun. Each team in the league represents different historic neighborhoods in Detroit. Nick plays for the Patton Park team.
When he has a free weekend, he enjoys spending time outside in any way possible, including camping, hiking, skiing, and especially biking around his neighborhood in Detroit. Alternatively, he’s just as happy to hang around the house, work on his vegetable garden, and watch a Tigers baseball game or any sports team from his alma mater, the University of Michigan. GO BLUE!
