Chris Nickels was recently named as a Top 100 Litigator in South Carolina by the American Society of Legal Advocates (ASLA).
ASLA is an invitation-only, nationwide organization of elite lawyers in practice today. ASLA draws its affiliation from lawyers who combine exceptional legal credentials with a proven commitment to community engagement and the highest professional standards. Their exclusive membership comprises less than two percent of all licensed lawyers nationwide.
Chris specializes in helping clients with business disputes, injury claims and insurance matters. He tries a number of cases each year, appearing in state and federal courts representing individuals, employers, self-insured’s and insurance carriers.
“Chris has been such an asset to our litigation department since he has been with us,” says Sam Clawson, managing member at Clawson & Staubes. “The combination of his experience in trying cases with negotiating skills to seek successful results for our clients at every stage of the legal process has been very valuable.”
In November 2011, Nickels was elected to Mount Pleasant Town Council. He chairs Mount Pleasant’s Public Services Committee and serves on the Annexation, Human Resource and the Police, Legal and Judicial Committees of Council.
Nickels has a bachelor’s degree in finance and economics and a Juris Doctorate with honors from Northern Illinois University.
