Nick is the son of Cuban immigrants that fled Castro in 1960.  His parents came to the United States with very little money seeking freedom and opportunity.  After arriving in the United States, Nick’s father worked in a factory during the day and attended dental school at night, despite having already graduated dental school in Cuba.  Nick was and continues to be inspired by his parents’ example of hard work and commitment and attributes his successful legal practice to them.
