NICHOLAS J. VENDITELLI
Nick graduated from the University of Michigan in 1974 with a degree in Psychology. In 1978, he graduated from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. He then began his legal career as a Senior Citizens Attorney with the St. Clair County Legal Aid and Defender Office in Port Huron, Michigan. In 1980, Bryan began his own private law practice and for several years practiced as a general practitioner. It was soon thereafter, however, that he found he was best suited to be a trial and appellate attorney.
In 1990, Nick began to specialize in one area: Criminal Law. Since that time, he has primarily been a criminal defense attorney. For three years, from 1997 to 2000, while he maintained his private practice, Nick was also the Prosecuting Attorney for the cities of Dearborn Heights and Woodhaven.
