Rush & Nicholson > People > William G. Nicholson

“I have been helping people for over 35 years. The practice of law has changed, and what I like about my job has changed over that time. I have gained confidence but still enjoy the challenge of keeping up to date in a complex job. I especially like getting to know my clients, helping them understand the legal system, and using my experience to get the best result I can.”

Bill Nicholson, Practicing since 1980
