Russell Nicolet has always been focused on helping people through difficult situations. He became an attorney and has integrated this personal philosophy into his practice so that he could help people through some of the most stressful situations they will face in life. Russell's goal in every case is to help his clients get into a better position than where they were prior to contacting him.

Russell's Legal Practice

Russell has focused his legal practice in the areas of personal injury in Wisconsin and Minnesota. This focused approach allows him to provide clients with knowledgeable and effective representation while maintaining the personal attention they deserve. Russell has personally handled hundreds of cases from start to finish. He has appeared in courtrooms (including trials), settlement conferences, depositions, arbitrations, mediations and hearings across Wisconsin and Minnesota.

While Russell handles only injury issues today, he has years of experience in real estate litigation, contract litigation, family law and criminal law, which has given him a unique perspective on how other areas of law may impact his clients' personal injury cases. He uses this understanding, along with a network of trusted attorneys who practice in these other areas, to make sure that all of his clients' legal needs are met.

Strong Ties To The Community

Russell was born in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and now lives in Hudson, Wisconsin. He was the first in his immediate family to attend a four-year university, and he was the first to attend law school.

Russell comes from a very large extended family that consists of diverse professions such as farmers, businesspeople, teachers, factory workers, nurses, truck drivers, public workers, bankers and many other types of jobs that play vital roles in their communities. By growing up around people in all of these various jobs, Russell gained an understanding of the struggles, issues and needs that different families and individuals face.

Russell has seen firsthand how the odds can be stacked against the average family when it comes to dealing with banks, insurance companies and large corporations. Seeing the injustice that this can lead to, he founded Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers to help level the play fielding and ensure that families and individuals have an advocate to help them through financial issues and injuries caused by others.

"My office is dedicated to helping good people - just like you - get out of difficult situations. We care about our clients, we care about their problems, and we care about helping them find solutions. We don't just fight for our clients; we help them rebuild their life."

Founding And Growing Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers

Over the past ten years, Russell has grown Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers through hard work and results. He has added staff members who share that same commitment. This careful selection has created a dedicated, caring and intelligent legal team. I believe that a law office should be a comfortable and helping atmosphere, where clients can come in, tell their story, be heard and then have their attorney develop a strategy to help them."

Russell and his team have been able to accomplish this goal, allowing the firm to help clients from a variety of backgrounds. They also represent other lawyers when they face injury or financial distress.


Russell received his Juris Doctor from William Mitchell College of Law (WMCL). While a student at WMCL, Russell worked as a law clerk for Miller Law Office and as a judicial extern for Washington County under the Honorable Susan R. Miles.

Prior to attending law school, Russell received his bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point (USWP), where he majored in business administration and political science with a minor in history. During his academic career at UWSP, he managed the Student Legal Services Office and interned for the State Public Defender's Office in Wausau, Wisconsin. After graduating from UWSP, Russell traveled to Sichuan Province in China, where he was a management intern for Hauxing Car Group.

More About Russell

Russell has authored two books: "Get Free of Debt Now - What Your Creditors Don't Want You to Know" and "The Ultimate Guide to Injury Cases in Wisconsin." He has also taught continuing legal education classes for other lawyers. When not practicing law, Russell enjoys running, swimming, boating, kiteboarding, wakeboarding, snowboarding and, most importantly, spending time with his wife and four boys.

A series of events outside of our control led us to have to leave our home and relocate. We were doing well, then we financially fell apart because of the loss of our main income. We were left with a house we couldn't afford on the other side of the state, medical bills from just having a child, and moving expenses that drained our funds. We decided to look into bankruptcy and came across the Nicolet Law Office. We entered the office feeling somewhat ashamed as we had been financially responsible beforehand so the whole situation was hard on us. After meeting with Mr. Nicolet, we were assured that we weren't alone and that people go through this from many levels of society. We left the office with something we hadn't had in quite some time, the feeling of hope that everything would be ok. Despite the situation, working with the Nicolet Law Office was a pleasant experience and I would highly recommend anyone going through financial hardship to consider Russell Nicolet. Our case has since been settled and we are well on our way to stabilizing and improving our financial position.

When dealing with Russell, he always explained the process in ways you can understand and not all the legal terminology. He is very understanding, helpful and flexible!! His staff was so polite and friendly as well. Both Russell and his staff never appeared to pass judgement despite your current situation!!

Russell made the process very easy. He makes sure you know everything that he needs, answers any questions that come up, takes the time to make sure that you understand everything, and stays in constant communication to keep you updated on what is going on and to see how everything is going. I was very impressed at how easy the whole process. I was worried about being stuck with a mountain of medical bills and the headache of dealing with insurance companies. All I had to do was send him the medical bills, the what seemed to be never ending list of appointments, and the amount of hours I was missing at work. He took care of everything. I would recommend him to anyone that needs legal advice and he will be the first person that I go to if I ever need legal advice. He treats you like a person and not just a pay check. That is something that is hard to find. I can't thank him enough for what he has done for me and my family. He is the best!

My case was personal bankruptcy which included a small business. Russell was always upfront with how the process would work and the costs involved. My case included many banks and credit card companies. It was lots of work for both Russell and me. Russell was particularly great with all the many questions I had trying to get my paper work in order. If I had a question it was usually answered that same day. Russell is easy to work with, and I would highly recomend his services. BJH Jr.
