Nicholas J. LaFountain
Attorney Nicholas J. LaFountain is an experienced litigator and negotiator. Attorney LaFountain has been successfully representing clients in the courtroom since he first began practicing law. Prior to becoming a lawyer, Attorney LaFountain was also trained in how to mediate cases. His negotiating experience, and knowledge of the court system, helps him achieve favorable results for his clients both inside and outside of court.
Attorney LaFountain primarily focuses his practice on divorce/family law, civil litigation and dispute negotiation, and criminal defense. His civil practice also includes personal injury cases, landlord/tenant matters, plaintiff representation, and defense representation. Further specific examples include auto accidents; slip and falls; injuries caused by third parties; contract disputes; partnership and other business disputes; consumer protections claims; probate litigation; condominium litigation; insurance claims; and property disputes.
As an experienced divorce lawyer, Attorney LaFountain understands very well that divorce/family law cases involve much more than dividing property, or who sees the children on a particular day. The emotional toll of a dissolving marriage can be devastating, to both the parties and their children. Attorney LaFountain keeps that in mind at all steps, to better help resolve the matter at hand, and to try minimizing post-divorce conflicts once the case is resolved.
In all types of matters, Attorney LaFountain firmly believes in providing his clients with an informed analysis, options, and value. In selecting a strategy for a particular matter, clients are kept informed on options and anticipated costs, and clients are asked to participate. When dealing with the opposing party, zealous advocacy and reaching a final, cost-effective resolution are the focus.
Outside of work, Attorney LaFountain spends the majority of his free time with his family and volunteering in the local community. His volunteer work includes coaching youth sports, serving on a local school board, and serving as a scout leader.
