Attorney Nate Olson has taken an unorthodox route in becoming an attorney. While recovering from shrapnel wounds in Baghdad during the early months of the Iraq War, Nate, a Purple Heart recipient, decided that it was an opportune time to leave the world of law enforcement and military and pursue a career as an attorney.

In addition to his legal training, Nate relies upon his unique life experiences, whether it is from combat tours in the Balkans and the Middle East, to humanitarian relief missions in Central America, to working with federal, state, and drug enforcement agencies, to provide his clients with superior legal services. Nate understands and appreciates that many people who are in need of legal services simply do without because of the legal fees most attorneys charge. Nate takes great pride in offering superior legal services at an affordable price.

Nate resides in Oshkosh with his wife, Carla, their four children, Ethan, Liliana, Isla, Natalie, and their dogs, Frankenstein and Hazel.
