Nick was born and raised in Montana, growing up in the Bitterroot Valley.  He obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree, with honors, in Political Science and International Relations from Carroll College before going on to obtain his Juris Doctorate degree from Gonzaga Law School in Spokane, Washington ("let's go Zags!"). 


During law school, Nick served as the Gonzaga Law Review's Managing Editor and received a CALI Excellence for the Future Award for Legal Research and Writing as well as being awarded "Best Brief" during the school's Linden Cup advocacy competition.  

In addition to his legal studies, Nick worked for a private law firm in Spokane practicing criminal defense and personal injury law, clerked for the Washington Court of Appeals, and volunteered as a Special Deputy Prosecutor for the Spokane County Attorney's Office.  

Following law school, Nick returned to his home state and joined the firm of Skjelset & Geer in Missoula practicing primarily plaintiff's civil litigation and criminal defense.

Before founding Trailhead Law in 2016, Nick served as a Deputy County Attorney for Yellowstone County and as Chair of the Yellowstone County DUI Task Force.  


He is currently licensed to practice in all Municipal, State and Federal Courts in Montana.
