Community Involvement

Nicolet Law Office is more than just a law firm; it's a part of the community. We are proud to live and work in the places we serve and to help our friends, neighbors and fellow community members with their legal needs.

Our commitment to community goes beyond our legal practice. We are routinely involved in local initiatives and activities that focus on a wide range of causes and goals. Examples of this involvement are highlighted below.

2017 (all year)

May 2017 - Donations To Fund School Lunch Programs In Hudson And Eau Claire

At Nicolet Law Office, we understand that receiving an education is only one aspect of a child's school experience. Other things, such as getting good, nutritional meals are also an important part of what children should receive when they go to school.

Unfortunately, financial hurdles can sometimes arise, and balances on lunch accounts can become past due. When this happens, children may not be able to obtain the full range of nutritional benefits that a good school meal can provide.

As both passionate advocates for strong education in our communities and public school products ourselves (most members of our team attended public school, some in Hudson, Eau Claire, and other nearby districts in western Wisconsin), we decided to help with this situation by making donations to local schools.

In Hudson, we donated money to the school's "Angel Account" in order to pay off the full past due balance. This account ensures that kids in the school district are able to get lunch in the event they are unable to pay. In Eau Claire, we paid off the past due balances for all of the elementary school children in the district who were eligible to receive free or reduced cost meals. We also contributed to the ELF fund, which allows students to get full meals (rather than just a cheese sandwich and milk) if their parents have an outstanding bill.

By contributing to these accounts, we hope to ensure that every child in these school districts is always able to get the good meals and important nutrition that they need to make the most of their educational experience.

We encourage you to get involved with your local school system or other community organization as much as possible. Financial donations are not the only way to do this - consider donating your time or expertise to help out a school, charitable organization, or other community group.

April 2017 - Donation To St. Patrick's School

Nicolet Law Office made a sponsorship donation to St. Patrick's School for their 2017 school gala ("An Evening at the Circus"). The gala's goal this year is to raise money for Google Chromebooks for middle school students.

We also made a donation to River Crest Elementary in Hudson for their school carnival.

November 2016 (and ongoing) - Wills for Heroes

Attorney John Foss is a member of the Wills for Heroes program, where lawyers volunteer their time to help first responders (and their spouses) create wills and other estate planning documents. This program is designed to make sure that emergency personnel who are out there helping others in a crisis have access to important estate planning tools.

Recently, John participated in a Wills for Heroes event at the Hudson Police Department. Throughout the year, he continues to volunteer his time to this organization and the first responders it helps.
