Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

Hello – I’m Joel Nichols and I’m a partner in the Deno Millikan Law Firm, PLLC. My practice focuses primarily on employment law, personal injury,family law, andcriminal defense. I also enjoy advising small businesses on a variety of transactional and employment-related matters. Although born in Massachusetts, I was raised by a single mother in Shoreline, Washington after my father was killed in action in Vietnam in 1970. I grew up enjoying music, drama and sports. I didn’t think about becoming a lawyer until my freshman year in college when I had to fight the Social Security Administration to receive survivor benefits as a dependent of a deceased veteran. When not practicing law, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter. I’m a lifelong music fan, with tastes ranging from Johnny Cash to Frank Zappa. I love the energy generated from playing live music. I’ve been a drummer and percussionist since I was ten, and have played in symphonic, rock, and jazz bands all my life. I like to see live music any chance I get. I’ve also had a lifelong passion for the outdoors, having hiked hundreds of miles in the Cascades and Rocky Mountains since my youth. I enjoy fishing the vast lakes and rivers of the Northwest, and I like to play golf, swim and bike. I also enjoy watching my daughter act in plays, play music, and play softball. Now that you know a little bit about me, I look forward to getting to know you and how I can help you with your legal needs. Feel free to call me or to shoot me an email at joelnichols@denomillikan.com to see how I may be able to help you.
