Nico the Office Dog was rescued from a Trumbull shelter by Joe Rucci and his son Ted. Nico, a mix of black lab, pit bull and shar-pei, loves greeting clients and guests. His areas of expertise include providing a soft shoulder to pet during a crisis, strong collaboration in snacks eaten during working hours and championship sleeping in all sunny spots in the office. Though known to take exception to four-legged company, Nico is the perfect gentleman as official “greeter” of the Rucci Law Group.


Nico describes his approach to work as a combination of understanding a client’s mood and his keen ability to sniff out those who will be generous with snacks. He draws on his vast experience as president of Office Dogs Anonymous to institute best practices and cutting edge technologies in the workplace. Nico is particularly fond of pizza and is always an active participant during staff meetings pizza lunches.


Nico takes his Office Dog responsibilities seriously and is particularly happy when clients stop by with their children since children always pay more attention to him than they do to the rest of the staff.  Stop in to say hello to Nico and meet the rest of the Rucci Law team.
