Nick earned his law degree (J.D.) at Lewis & Clark Law School after acquiring plenty of life experience in other fields, including jazz music, taxi driving, manufacturing, and hauling. His drive to help clients in need is deeply personal; when he was a young man, he had to watch his mother lose all her savings while battling complications from leukemia.
I sustained a severe back injury while at my work for a major grocery store chain. If not for Nicholas Cordes and his strength and courage to take on this giant I would’ve became homeless and completely broke with a ruined back for the rest of my life. Nicholas fought hard to get me the money I deserved and was never intimidated
to take on this giant company.
Nicholas was a huge wave of hope and strength as he fought for me all the way to the finish line. He works hard to get his clients compensation and a fresh start. Nicholas encourages you when you’re feeling hopeless and down about your injury.
I had a very difficult case and years of medical paperwork. Nick kept in touch and remained positive, in spite of the many obstacles that I faced because of having several health issues and which included a rare disease. We won at the hearing. Thank you Nick for all your hard work and loyalty.
My life suddenly changed when I was told at 47 that I had two types of heart failure, diabetes, hypertension, and constant sleep apnea. I couldn’t move, breathe, sleep, or work, and suddenly everything I owned was gone. When I was denied disability and moved into my truck, I was referred to Nicholas Cordes in Oregon City. My life immediately felt different after our first meeting and he never stopped supporting me. He won my case and won my life back! I now drive my truck instead of sleep in it. Thank you, Nicholas Cordes!”
