Attorney Natasha Wells Niklas established The Niklas Law Firm in 2010 in order to practice law the way she thought it should be practiced, by creating a client-centered law firm dedicated to quality legal representation. In 2011, Attorney Christian Niklas joined the firm as a partner and the firm was renamed Niklas & Niklas, LLC. As a family owned business, we are uniquely attuned to the difficulties suffered by families when someone is injured. Moreover, we operate our firm consistent with our personal belief that everyone should be treated with respect and kindess regardless of their gender, race, religion, education or economic status.
Since its inception, the firm has been successful in representing clients in all manner of injury and death claims. In our short history, we have already established a track record of successfully resolving complex wrongful death and serious injury claims. We attribute our success to the personal relationships that we have developed with our clients and the aggressive pursuit of the compensation that our clients are entitled to.
