About Nicholas

Nicholas E. Wocl received a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and education from Providence College in 1981. During commencement, he was awarded the Rev. Vincent C. Dore Award for Community Service. Upon graduation from Providence College, he was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps Reserve.

Nick earned his Juris Doctor degree, with honors, from the University of Bridgeport School of Law in 1984. While in law school, he was promoted to First Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. During law school, he was selected for membership in the Law Review, and in his third year, he was elected Managing Editor of the Law Review. Also in his third year, Nick became the first law student in the State of Connecticut to try a case in Federal Court. At his law school commencement, he received the Litigation Skills and Practice Award for demonstration of outstanding litigation skills.

A Devoted Personal Injury Attorney

In 1984, Nick was admitted to the practice of law in Connecticut and Pennsylvania. He is also admitted to practice in the Federal Court for the District of Connecticut, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.

As an attorney, Nick has devoted his professional career to litigation. When asked why he selected “litigation” as the area of law he wanted to practice, Nick said, “I decided to become a trial lawyer so that I could fight and protect the rights of people who could not fight and protect themselves. When I was in high school, I protected students who were being bullied. Now I protect people from corporations, hospitals, doctors, and negligent drivers. I have the best job in the world. I hold people accountable for their wrongful conduct. I protect people from financial harm and ruin and compel wrongdoers to take responsibility for their conduct.”

For the past 20 years, Nick has concentrated solely on litigating personal injury, medical malpractice, and attorney grievance hearings. He has tried numerous courtside and jury trials to verdict. Nick has resolved many cases, by either verdict or settlement, exceeding $1 million.

"There are many people who are victims of the negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct of wrongdoers. I ensure that my clients are not victimized twice: once by their injuries and second by the legal system where insurance defense attorneys take advantage of the weak and uninformed. My duty to my clients is to force wrongdoers to take responsibility for their conduct and force them to pay full, fair, and complete compensation for every injury and damage suffered by my client, so that full justice is obtained."
