About Nicholas C. Rowley
Winning more than $2 Billion in verdicts and settlements for injury victims and families across the country, Nick Rowley has become a nationally renown Trial Lawyer. His success didn’t come easily, but the many challenges he faced forged him into the fighter he is today. Most importantly Nick Rowley is a husband and father.
Born in Iowa, Nick spent his early years living on a farm and grew up spending the summers working on his grandparents farm. He spent five years of his childhood living in a border town in Arizona, the town of Nogales, where he was bullied and beat up regularly.

Nick started working and buying his own clothes and food as early as the 5th grade and fully moved out on his own at the age of 15. Nick was emancipated at age 16. He worked as a paperboy, washed cars, mowed lawns, did field and farm work in Iowa and worked construction and also as a small engine mechanic before joining the military at age 17. Nick served as a medic in both the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army. In the Army he was the medic in an Air Defense Artillery Unit. Nick took advantage of the military’s education benefits. Tuition assistance and the G.I. Bill afforded him the opportunity to attend college and law school. By age 19, while still in the military, Nick completed his bachelor’s degree and three associates degrees and started working on a Master’s Degree. Nick was trained and certified as a firefighter and worked as a volunteer firefighter for a fire department near his military base. Nick switched from the Air Force to the Army at age 20 and continued his service while he attended law school.
