Nick Avdis has served on the Reclamation District Board of Trustees since November of 2013.
Nick and his wife operate a small scale, grass fed beef ranch in the Natomas area where they are raising their children along with a menagerie of animals, a natural endeavor, as Nick grew up on a ranch in Natomas that his family has owned for close to 80 years.
An attorney by profession, Nick specializes in land use and general real estate law. He is currently Of Counsel to the Thomas Law Group in Sacramento. Nick received his law degree from the University of California, Davis in 2003 and also received his Bachelor of Arts from UC Davis in 2000. He has been recognized by California Lawyer magazine as a “Rising Star” for eight consecutive years, beginning in 2009.
His community work is also reflective of his dedication to the Natomas community.
