About Paul Nicklas and his Associates

Paul Nicklas & Associates:  Serving Humboldt County since 1970

To obtain business experience while attending Humboldt State University in 1969, Paul became licensed as an insurance agent with New England Life.  He was appointed by the City of Eureka to be the agent for the Employee Group Life Plan which triggered formation of Nicklas Insurance Agency in 1970. This early experience and a Humboldt State University degree in Business Administration led to his appointment as a Managing Director with Northwestern Mutual Life in 1971. The agency was located on C Street for 31 years where he was known for "selling protection next to the Police Station".  The agency transferred in 2002 to the campus on Myrtle Avenue in Eureka, coinciding with Northwestern's celebration of 100 years continuous service in Humboldt County.

Paul Nicklas has dedicated his life to making a difference, serving others and helping people preserve and increase wealth. Northwestern Mutual has appointed Phillip Nicklas, financial representative with an eye toward the future and David Nicklas is the Managing Partner of Nicklas & Associates.
