After growing up in Walnut Creek and graduating from Las Lomas High School in 1987, Nick received his undergraduate degree in 1991 from the University of California, Riverside with a BA in History and Law, and his law degree from the University of Dayton. He wrote for and edited the Dayton Law Review, played on the intercollegiate club volleyball team and graduated from UD with honors in 1995.

He started his legal practice in Walnut Creek in 1996, with a focus on real estate and business transactions and litigation. During those early years, much time was spent assisting residential and commercial landlords with lease transactions and disputes, including an extensive unlawful detainer practice. In 1999, Nick transitioned to Concord, and while working for a small law firm expanded his practice to include more extensive litigation, as well as land use planning and entitlement work, construction law, and addressing all manner of real estate acquisition and ownership issues. During this time Nick started representing several local homebuilders, who he has continued to represent over the years. In 2011, Nick and Chris Odne formed Roscha & Odne LLP and moved to their current location.

Now with 20 years of experience in the practice of law, Nick represents clients on a broad range of matters, including drafting and enforcing residential and commercial leases, acquisition and sale of vacant and developed real property, mechanic’s lien enforcement, land use planning and development, CEQA compliance and permitting, business entity formation, disputes and termination, and real estate and business litigation.

Nick lives in Martinez with his wife, and when he is not working or spending time with his family you may find him on the golf course, on his bike, or in the garden.

Chris grew up in Walnut Creek and graduated from De La Salle High School, where he recently completed a term on the DLS Alumni Board of Directors and was a member of the 1997 swim team that was inducted into the DLS Athletics Hall of Fame.  He graduated from the University of Southern California in 2001 with degrees in Business Administration and Finance.

Chris began practicing law in Walnut Creek in 2005 focusing exclusively on civil litigation, where he represented clients in a wide variety of disputes. Prior to forming Roscha & Odne LLP, he transitioned to a local firm in Concord in 2008, where he expanded his practice to include a primary focus on real estate and business related matters in addition to his ongoing litigation practice.
