Wendy Schiller-Nichols is "Rocking It" in 2023; Ready to Keep It Going

By Michael Nichols
Categories: Personal Injury

A woman who lost an arm in an ATV accident; a tragic dog-bite case; and more.
Wendy Schiller-Nichols has 2023 by the tail and she keeps moving forward. Wendy recently attended the Institute for Continuing Legal Education (ICLE) No-Fault Summit and reflected on cases that she is resolving and how important her clients are to her. Wendy is not resting on her laurels even though she already generated $400,000.00 in recoveries in the 1st quarter of the year alone.
One of the cases that Wendy is proud of, involved a woman in an ATV who lost her arm. Other lawyers thought the case was too tough because the woman's husband, who was driving the ATV, was charged and convicted of Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) causing serious injury (to her). Wendy says: "when I looked at the pictures, they told a different story. I thought this person needed help and it would just take some hard work." Eventually, the insurance company relented.
Another recent case involves a terrible dog-bite attack against a young girl. Wendy knew that when she met with the girl and her mom, that the case required someone with experience in medical records and a willingness to take the time to go through them and tell the story. Wendy says "when I met the family and the little girl, my heart broke for them and I knew I needed to be there for them and make a difference."
Wendy still took the time, even with 20 years of experience, to attend the state-wide No-Fault Summit for 2023 on April 27-28, organized by ICLE. This was an opportunity for lawyers, like Wendy who are on the leading edge to develop new strategies to litigate cases where real people are victims of the negligence of others - especially situations in which the insurance companies make it worse by stone-walling claims. Making the time to juggle her responsibilities as a mom and managing partner of the Nichols Law Firm is a great example of our dedication and how we are Committed to Results.
