Vinod Nichani's Summary
The goal of Nichani Law Firm is to provide cost effective legal solutions to individuals and small and medium size business owners. My diverse practice provides representation of individual and business clients in all aspects of Individual and Corporate bankruptcy. We also provide litigation representation in bankruptcy, real estate and business matters.
I began my legal career while working full time as a law clerk and attending law school at night. As a law clerk, I gained valuable experience in Civil Litigation, Real Estate, Business Law, Trusts and Estates and Bankruptcy.
My business experience began in 1999 when I began my career in real estate sales and finance. My combined experience gives me the ability to exercise a practical approach to the law, while quickly identifying the relevant matters and rapidly moving to resolve issues in a cost effective manner.
I hold a B.S. in Criminology as well as a law degree from Lincoln Law School of San Jose, California. I am a member of the California bar.
