He earned his J.D. from the University of Florida Levin College of Law, and his undergraduate from the University of Florida.

Nick Vargo is a returning attorney to the firm, having previously worked in the Orlando office. Now in Ball Janik's Sarasota office, Vargo will represent residential, commercial, and public owners in all construction disputes, complex construction defect litigation, and contract disputes. He earned his J.D. and Master of Laws in Taxation from the University of Florida Levin College of Law, and his master's and undergraduate degree from the University of South Florida.

"I’m excited to rejoin such a dynamic and driven team that has faced rapid growth in the past few years,” said Vargo. “My time away from Ball Janik reinforced my view that the firm’s culture is unrivaled, and each attorney’s approachable, hardworking, and collaborative personality places client needs as the ultimate priority.”
