Areas of Practice

Nick T. Stanton

Nick is a steadfast advocate for his clients, and takes great pleasure in helping them achieve their goals. His practice at the firm is presently focused on civil litigation, with an emphasis on employment law, representation of municipalities in civil rights claims, and a variety of other issues facing Vermont local governments.  Nick also represents artists of all stripes in connection with the protection and commercialization of their intellectual property rights. 

Nick’s practice is reflective of his professional and personal experiences.  He attended Vermont Law School from 2004 to 2007, while simultaneously serving as a Staff Assistant for former Vermont Senator James M. Jeffords. There, he became familiar with the legislative process and the intricacies of government.  After clerking at Vermont Legal Aid in 2007, Nick began his legal career with the federally-funded legal services organization Disability Rights Vermont, where he successfully resolved hundreds of complex civil rights, employment, and financial disputes to the benefit of his clients.  After five satisfying years with Disability Rights Vermont, he joined Monaghan Safar Ducham PLLC, where he enjoys engaging advocacy in the company of talented colleagues.  

Nick treasures the time he spends with his wife and two children, sharing adventures like hiking and skiing.  His successful creative and commercial experience in the entertainment industry has given him a valuable perspective on the issues facing the artistic community, including the challenges of intellectual property protection, content licensing, and taking various actions to protect those rights.  Nick also stays active in the community through pro bono publico work for a variety of individuals, and as a member of various boards, including Global Partners for Health, a non-profit humanitarian organization.  He is also a member of the federally-mandated advisory council for Disability Rights Vermont.  Nick is licensed to practice in Vermont’s State and Federal Courts.
