The Clekis Law Firm’s founding partner, Nicholas Clekis moved to Charleston, SC in 1982 to attend the College of Charleston where he received a Bachelors of Science and then went on to attend the University of SC School of Law, graduating with a Juris Doctorate in 1985. Early on in his career Nick worked with firms like Morris, Duffy & Boone (now known as McNair Law Firm, PA) and Grimball & Cabaniss, LLC.
