Benjamin Nicolet focuses his practice on Personal Injury and representing clients who have been injured as a result of another’s negligence. He is admitted to practice law in the state courts of Minnesota and Wisconsin; as well as the federal courts of the District of Minnesota and Western District of Wisconsin.
Ben has handled the gamut of injury cases, from life-altering 18-wheeler accidents, to vicious dogs terrorizing neighborhoods, and family camping trips ending in tragic boating accidents.
Ben says, “Clients generally come to us when they feel like their lives have been turned upside down; whether it’s from a car accident that has caused them injuries or relentless creditors harassing them day and night. In chaos, there must be calculation. My goal is to be a steady hand for our clients that guides them to financial freedom or recovery.”
