At John Marshall, Nicholas was an annual recipient of the Dean's Scholarship. He was on the Dean’s List for two semesters and was a CALI Award for his grades in Professional Responsibility and Sales Transactions.

Nicholas served as an extern for the Honorable James N. O'Hara, Circuit Court of Cook County, Law Division in Chicago. As an extern, he researched and drafted weekly memoranda and orders for judicial review on legal issues involving motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment in a range of cases including product liability, medical negligence, and motor vehicle accident matters.

Testimonials
★★★★★
Levin and Perconti was always there when we needed them and very quick to answer any questions. We are happy to say that Ashley Herschberger was very professional, informative, kind, and prompt when it came to our case. She was always there if we had a concern or a question. We would recommend Ashley and the law firm, Levin and Perconti, to anyone else. We would also come back with another case of our own if ever needed. The Gonzalez Family

Our deepest appreciation to the law firm of Levin & Perconti, and in particular to Margaret Battersby Black, in the handling of the lawsuit we field n behalf of our sister who sustained life-threatening injuries as a nursing home resident. Margaret’s representation, guidance, and professionalism gave us the sense that we could put our trust in Levin & Perconti and the final outcome proved that to be true. D.G., Nursing Home Client

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf. M.R.Z., nursing home client
