Nicolas Grimwood


Nic's career in the law began in Oklahoma City under the training of highly-regarded trial attorneys Murray Abowitz, Sarah Timberlake, and Mike Brown. It was during this time that he gained significant experience in insurance defense, commercial litigation, intellectual property rights, general tort liability, and contract interpretation and enforcement. He was also instrumental in crafting arguments in an appeal regarding trade secrets that prevailed before the Oklahoma Supreme Court. Since relocating to Branson, Nic's practice has transitioned toward a stronger focus on transactional matters and estate planning. 

As an attorney, Nic's passion is to help people plan for any unexpected changes the future may hold by ensuring that (1) personal, family and business goals are fulfilled, (2) risks and expenses are minimized, and (3) peace of mind is achieved. He takes pride in providing each of his clients with personal attention, clear communication, timely assistance, and excellent results. Additionally, he makes it his primary goal to understand each client's specific objectives, and then sufficiently explain the available options.


Nic and his wife, Lindsay, have a son and enjoy travelling, spending time outdoors, and enjoying all of the unique aspects of living in the Branson area.
