Nicole Petrow has joined McGrath North’s nationally recognized Tax group following her two year clerkship with the firm. Nicole received her undergraduate degree from Creighton University where her excellence was recognized by her induction into Phi Beta Kappa, the Dean’s Fellows Program, her selection as the Leo Vincent Jacks Scholar of Classical Languages, and much more. Nicole’s deep interest in Greek and Roman history then led her to the Joslyn Art Museum during college where she studied and catalogued its unique collection of Roman glass.
After deciding that her long term career interest was working with business owners (her family operated Petrow’s Restaurant in Omaha for over 70 years), Nicole attended the nationally ranked University of Minnesota Law School, where her academic excellence was again recognized. She focused her studies in business and tax, and graduated with a Business Concentration in May 2021. While in law school, Nicole served as Managing Editor of the Minnesota Journal of Law, Science and Technology, was named a Dean’s Elite Scholar, and worked in the Employment Law Clinic gaining practical, client-focused experience.

As our society becomes increasingly tied to digital technologies, the world of estate planning is faced with novel questions. Today, many people own substantial digital assets whether they realize it or not.
