Nicholas began his legal career as an Assistant Attorney General with the Arizona Attorney General's Office, representing the Department of Child Safety. In this position, he appeared in several hundred juvenile court hearings, mediations, and trials.

Upon leaving the Attorney General's Office, Nicholas started as an attorney with Cantor Law Group, where he now is the Managing Family Law Attorney.

Nicholas’ practice includes, dissolution of marriage, legal separation, high net worth/complex divorces, prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements, child support, paternity, parenting time, legal decision-making (formerly "custody"), spousal maintenance, modifications and enforcement of existing orders, relocation, orders of protection, injunctions against harassment, grandparent rights, DCS cases, dependency, guardianship, termination of parental rights, and adoption. He represents people in all walks of life throughout Arizona and Nationwide.

Nicholas is involved in the Arizona legal community, conducting Continuing Legal Education Events for other Arizona family law attorneys, through the State Bar of Arizona and Maricopa County Bar Association.
