Nick is admitted to practice in Ohio state and federal courts and the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Nick has dedicated his career to seeking justice for people who have been injured or harmed by another’s careless or reckless misconduct.

Nick also litigates car and truck crash cases.
Holding Wrongdoers Accountable and Protecting the Community
Nick is proud of the work he does in holding wrongdoers and rule-breakers accountable for the harms and losses they cause. A former professional athlete, Nick thrives in the competitive and highly demanding litigation atmosphere.
In addition to representing people who have been injured and killed by careless or reckless conduct, Nick has developed a passion for protecting consumers’ rights. The free market creates a diverse and productive business atmosphere. Unfortunately, it can also foster, and at times reward, deceptive and unscrupulous business practices. Nick and the consumer rights attorneys at Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP are dedicated to rooting out companies that employ dishonest and deceitful practices and prey on unsuspecting consumers.
For example, Nick was involved in pursuing insurers who rescinded health insurance coverage after the policyholder was diagnosed with a serious medical condition or incurred substantial medical bills. Nick’s work to expose these abhorrent practices was recognized by a House Congressional panel that interviewed him in connection with their efforts to pass new legislation limiting health insurance rescissions and cancellations. Nick has also handled a number of important civil rights cases, including the homicide of a local man who was killed after being restrained to a chair for hours and pepper-sprayed repeatedly.
