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.”

Benjamin earned his law degree, cum laude, from the University of Minnesota Law School. While attending law school, Ben was actively involved in the school’s bankruptcy clinic program, where he represented low-income individuals from the Twin Cities in bankruptcy filings and proceedings. Prior to joining Nicolet Law Office as an attorney, Ben spent summers during law school clerking at the firm. Ben also competed in Minnesota Law’s Maynard Pirsig Moot Court program and upon graduation, Ben received the law school’s Civil Litigation Concentration certificate.

Benjamin graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire in 2013. Between graduating from UW – Eau Claire and beginning law school, Ben spent a year living and teaching English in Kharkiv, Ukraine. During that time, he began learning the Russian language and he continues to study it.

In his free time, Benjamin enjoys spending time with his wife, bicycling, traveling, and playing chess.
