Nicholas A. Ziolkowski, Esq.

Nicholas A. Ziolkowski works in our Clinton office as a family law attorney.  He concentrates in various areas of family law to include both uncontested and contested actions involving divorce, separation agreements, child custody, child support, spousal support, alimony, equitable distribution, domestic violence protection orders, name changes, termination of parental rights, and adoptions.  He also handles juvenile delinquency and Department of Social Services matters, personal injury claims, and criminal district court.  He and his assistant, Ms. Maria Perez, are known for possessing the skill and ability to assist an overwhelming majority of family law clients requiring Spanish services in the Sampson County area.

Mr. Ziolkowski was born in Lewistown, Pennsylvannia to George and Arlene Ziolkowski.  He obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Theatre degree from Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, North Carolina.  During this time, he also studied abroad at Queen Mary and Westfield College in London, England.

Ziolkowski obtained his law degree from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska.  While in law school, Ziolkowski worked as a clerk for Lustgarten & Roberts, one of the oldest family law firms in Omaha, Nebraska.  Afterwards, he moved to Wilmington, North Carolina, and worked in various criminal and civil matters for almost a decade before opening his own firm.  Silva, Kiernan & Associates brought Ziolkowski and his then office manager, Adriana Simmons, into the Firm due to their success in managing their own office and excellent reputation in the area.

Ziolkowski has traveled the globe, but prefers his quiet life in Clinton, North Carolina with his beloved and beautiful wife, Erin, and their cat, Miller.  In his spare time, Ziolkowski enjoys supporting Wake Forest athletics, cooking, bonding with the family cat, and traveling to Walt Disney World with his loving family and wife.
