Mr. Nyce’s general practice is concentrated in 9 areas of specialization:

This is the age of specialization in our profession and notwithstanding, I am in sole practice and I classify myself as a semi-general practitioner. Most firms departmentalize whereby the attorney can offer expertise in his one area of specialization only. However the general practitioner, or limited general practitioner, because of his broader base of expertise and experience, is usually best equipped to offer a wider range of advice in areas that may affect a client’s decision. Said another way, limited general practice attorneys are able to represent their clients with a comprehensive spectrum of advice because each major area of the law is usually interrelated and dependent upon other areas of the law. 

For instance, I have found it most helpful to clients to have a vast background and full working knowledge of real estate law when I prepare an estate plan or handle a divorce case. In a corporate law or family law matter, it is best to have a thorough background and working knowledge of litigation to be able to fully apprise the clients of their rights. When representing a person charged with a crime, it is best to have a comprehensive background on the civil law side to best advise the client of his or her future rights and considerations.


Areas of Specialization include:

  1. Trusts and Estate Planning (over $50 million planned assets and 300 wills) 

  2. Real Property Law (over 450 closings-$50 million issued title insurance) 

  3. Marital & Family Law (350 divorce cases) 

  4. Adoptions (500 adoptions and TPR’s) 

  5. Corporate Law (200 corporations) 

  6. Probate 

  7. Trial Law (over 800 non-jury commercial/family cases) 

  8. Ecclesiastical (Church) Law (serving 25 churches & ministries) 

  9. Criminal Law (now limited to misdemeanors, DUI & traffic)
