Our Story

Nicolet Law started in 2007 with Russell Nicolet hanging his own shingle in a small, one-room office, committed to helping individuals in his community of Hudson, Wisconsin. Russell built the firm by taking on difficult cases that other attorneys may have passed on, putting in the hard work to get results for those clients.

Russell's legal experience prior to becoming a lawyer — working as an intern for the public defender's office, an extern as a law clerk for a Minnesota judge and a law clerk for a local attorney — helped build his knowledge of the practice of law and gave him a unique view of all aspects of what clients may have to deal with in a given case or issue.

A Client-First Approach

As a young lawyer, Russell would spend hours doing legal research at the Washington County Law Library to give his clients any possible advantage, along with saving them the cost of paying for high-priced legal research programs. He worked relentlessly to build our firm so that his clients would have access to representation that delivers high-quality results with a client-first approach.

Today, Nicolet Law Office, S.C., is a firm of eight highly skilled and dedicated lawyers who are part of a team of 20 who all work hard to help our communities throughout western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota from nine convenient offices.
