Mark Nicholson graduated Indiana University McKinney School of Law in 2008. His fellow classmates elected him as their class president and graduation speaker. Nicholson went on to make a name for himself in the local legal community as a People Helper Lawyer, helping people who need quality legal representation for reasonable rates. His resume includes extensive trial experience in felony to misdemeanor cases, family law, and civil litigation.
He has had much success in the court room, but this isn’t what sets him apart from the crowd. More interesting than his present, is his past.
Nicholson received his bachelor’s degree while serving a 30-year prison sentence, studied and passed the LSAT while living in a homeless shelter, and in 2009 Nicholson received news that he had passed the bar exam. He is believed to be the only lawyer in modern Indiana history admitted to the bar with a major felony conviction.
