About

Attorney-Nik G. Geranios

 

I did not grow up dreaming of being an attorney- I decided to become one after my parents were involved in a frivolous and expensive lawsuit that wreaked havoc in their lives. I was unhappy with the aloof and unresponsive legal representation they received. My parents’ hard-earned money was flowing into their lawyer’s coffers, and he treated them as though he were doing them a favor. I never wanted to feel that helpless again, so I went to law school.

My mother raised me as a single parent and struggled to make ends meet for much of my childhood. I appreciate and understand first-hand the financial struggles that families go through. I have also navigated both of my parent’s end of life issues and understand the challenges in helping aging parents and the importance of estate planning.

My approach to the practice of law is simple: one-to-one personal service, attention to detail, and bringing my years of legal and life experience to help you obtain the results you need. During your initial consultation, I will take the time to understand your unique situation and offer advice in a relaxed, confidential setting. I will help you understand the short and long-term impacts of your decision, whether it be wiping out debt with bankruptcy, handling the complex issues of caring for an aging parent, or preparing a simple will.

I graduated from the University of Montana School of Law in 1995 and since then have developed experience in a wide range of legal areas – criminal defense, elder law, bankruptcy, contract disputes, family law, commercial litigation, consumer law, and estates.

Since opening my own practice in 2012, I have exclusively focused on bankruptcy, elder law, and estate planning. I intentionally operate a small and lean practice, because it allows me to provide my clients with personal attention  – and that’s what sets me apart.
