Nick is a lawyer in our Hornsby office. He has a Bachelor of Commerce and a Bachelor of Laws from Macquarie University, and a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice from the College of Law.
Since coming on board, Nick has worked primarily in the family law team. He enjoys assisting his clients to navigate this difficult and emotionally charged area of law.
Nick particularly likes working in family law as he has a strong moral compass as a lawyer and is an ardent advocate for human rights and justice. He aims to achieve a fair and equitable settlement for his clients no matter what.
Nick also has experience in civil and commercial litigation, wills and estates, tree and fencing disputes between neighbours, debt recovery actions and criminal law.
Finding that estate planning is an area of law that people are often not well prepared for, Nick enjoys being able to help people navigate the myriad of rules, restrictions and tax laws involved to manage their individual situation and ensure they retain some control over how they will be treated when older and vulnerable.
As a lawyer, Nick is compassionate, possessing empathy for his clients and their emotional state. He is also a lateral thinker, which helps him to step back and capture the bigger picture of the challenge at hand. He is a competent public speaker, highly organised and unafraid of approaching difficult conversations.
Nick has wanted to be a lawyer since he was nine years old and conducted his first investigation to discover the true identity of Santa Claus – unearthing evidence of a present receipt, taking witness statements from his brother, and then confronting his parents about their fraudulent behaviour and felonious impersonation of Santa. While his investigation ruined Christmas that year, it awakened a passion for justice and sealed his future career as a lawyer.
Outside of work, Nick likes catching up with his friends for trivia or board games. He is also an entertainer, enjoying singing at the local karaoke bar and being involved in performances on stage when possible.
