Nick’s Story

Nick has been with Falgien Warr & Iyer, P.C. since February 2020 when he joined as a part-time law clerk during law school. Nick graduated from the University of Colorado School of Law in 2021 and was licensed the same year. He has experience with personal injury cases from intake through successful jury verdict. Nick’s practice focuses on car crashes, dog bites, premises liability claims, general negligence claims, and first party insurance bad faith claims.

Before practicing law, Nick lived in Parker, Colorado before moving to Denver to attend college at Regis University. While at Regis University, Nick served as the vice-president of the student body. Nick also served as the president of the pre-law club “Res Judicata”. Nick worked part-time as a bartender at the on-campus pub, Walker’s Pub.

Enjoying the outdoorsWhen people get hurt, it turns their lives upside down. Nick’s approach to settling a case involves telling a client’s story. An injury is not an isolated event, it changes people’s lives forever. Every case is unique to each individual and not every case is the same. Nick brings professionalism and experience to every case he is involved with to help bring them to a satisfactory conclusion.

Q & A with Nick Stofa:

1. What is your proudest accomplishment thus far?

There are two experiences that have really stuck with me, one while at FWI Legal and one while at a previous employer. Early on at FWI Legal, I wrote a letter contesting the validity of a settlement offer given to a client only 72 hours after they were in a car collision. The settlement offer was far lower than what they deserved. The insurance company agreed the settlement was invalid based on case law and statutes I cited, and we were able to initiate negotiations for a higher offer. It made me happy to know that I was helping someone get the money they needed to cover their medical expenses and other damages after a collision.

While with Colorado Legal Services, I was able to help an elderly client get a loan to remodel her bathroom. She was initially unable to get the loan because a deed of trust had not been released on her home. After weeks of going back and forth with the bank, I was able to get her the loan right before Christmas. Hearing how happy she was made me feel really good.

2. Why personal injury and workers’ compensation?

Access to justice is critical in a world where legal assistance increasingly is offered only to the highest bidders. Providing access to quality legal counsel to everyone who needs it is my passion, and I can do just that at FWI Legal because of the contingency fee model. Everyone deserves access to quality legal assistance.

3. When you’re not at work or law school, what do you do?

I really enjoy playing online strategy games, my favorite being Age of Empires II. The mix of history and chess-like strategy coupled with multiplayer functionality makes a really fun experience and keeps my legal brain working hard!
