"Contacted Attorney Nicholl regarding trusts and estates work that needed to be done. He was personable, professional and very efficient at meeting our needs. I would highly recommend him and I will be using his services again in the near future."


"He was my second attorney in this matter. The first wanted me to settle for $7500. Then I changed attorneys. He negotiated well, and got me a settlement in the six figures. Very happy with the results."


"Tom is as good and honest of an Attorney as you can get on my case he always was looking out for me, kept me informed for everything that was happening no matter how minor. He is extremely Knowledgeable and does not play games. If you really want someone on you side hire Tom. I am glad I did"
