'Nicholson Electroplating' is an Arson Desk case where you and your partner will investigate a deadly and destructive mid-morning explosion at the Nicholson Electroplating plant. Investigate the events as you attempt to determine the cause of the explosion that killed 17 people and flattened several city blocks. There are 5 trophies and 4 of these trophies must be earned at the appropriate time or restarting the case from the beginning may be required. Keep in mind that you can "Quit Out" of the game if you miss something and need to resume to an earlier point in the game. It will resume from the last autosave so make sure you are aware of your save points. If you don't use this method, or don't use the method in time, then you can consider 4 of the trophies missable as related to DLC.
The downloadable content for 'Nicholson Electroplating' can be found under the Arson Desk once DLC is downloaded and installed.
5 stars is not required but for help with getting 5 stars check the walkthrough under The Big Unfriendly trophy.

Kill the drivers of two of the MP vehicles in the Hughes Aircraft gun battle before they pull up.
*Missable* Immediately upon finishing the chase sequence with Vernon Mapes (see Out Of The Frying Pan trophy) you will become engaged in a shootout. During the shootout, 4 enemy MP vehicles (green with star on the door) will drive into the shootout to join the gunfight against you and your partner. To unlock the trophy you must kill 2 MP vehicle drivers prior to them exiting the vehicle. Getting very close to the MP vehicles and to the locations they arrive is paramount to getting easier kills on the driver prior to the vehicle stopping.
The first thing to know is that your aim assist will pull your gunfire and will cause your gun to aim at enemies running nearby. Aim Assist should, however, be set to high to assist with this trophy ( to Pause then choose Options > Controls > Aim Assist > High).
Immediately at the start of the gunfight, quickly shoot the guard at the guardhouse to your right. Then sprint forward to take aim directly over the front hood of the MP vehicle already parked here. Aim toward the direction of the green truck while you await the first vehicle’s arrival. Take careful but fast aim at the driver’s head for a quick kill. Pre-aiming at the spot helps ensure you are ready and closing the distance allows for more of a chance of getting on the driver as a target. Learn the location of the where the vehicle will stop if subsequent attempts are necessary. The vehicles arrive and stop in the exact same location each time provided you are moving in the manner detailed.
With the first driver dead (you will hear the horn sound from the driver slumping onto the wheel when successful) you now need to sprint back to the street. Soon another MP vehicle will drive down the street toward you (a red vehicle icon always shows on the map). Take a position out into the middle of the street and get close to take aim while the vehicle is closing toward you. The other MPs can’t shoot you there and will not follow you. The lone driver of this MP vehicle is an easy kill when you get close enough. Take aim as early as you can and hit the button repeatedly to get aim assist to help target him. Pull up slightly for headshots.
The trophy does not unlock immediately upon finishing the two kills so continue to try with the next two vehicles just in case. Actively sprint toward where these MP cars will stop and try to get in front of them to more easily shoot the driver through the front of the windshield. Remember that you may want to try with different guns available in the trunk (including the DLC Piano gun if purchased) and bonus outfit choices (such as the Sharpshooter's accuracy bonus) can also be beneficial. Concentrate on getting kills while very close to the vehicles and don't be overly concerned about being killed as this is usually a minimal risk.
All MP vehicles inside the fence (where the first vehicle was) will appear each time in the same pre-determined locations with the third one coming from the left and then the last one appearing from the right. Killing a certain number of enemies or advancing forward is what triggers the MP vehicles 2-4 to arrive.
If the trophy does not unlock, or you failed to get two driver kills, then retain at least 1 or 2 enemies at the end so that you can run into their gunfire and die. Continue will reset you immediately prior to the arrival cutscene and you will still be able to unlock the trophy. Be aware that 3 failures will prompt you to skip the shootout (unless skip action sequence option is set to off) and you must respond “No” so that you don’t save beyond this save checkpoint until you've earned the trophy. Remember that this trophy is Missable and if you reach the next auto savepoint you will require a complete case restart.
Out Of The Frying Pan
Pursue Vernon Mapes from the burning house to Hughes Aircraft on your first attempt.
*Missable* During the course of the case, you will investigate a house from a photograph clue that was discovered. Following a cutscene there, you will begin a vehicle pursuit with Vernon Mapes. Unlocking the trophy requires pursuing Vernon all the way back to the Hughes Aircraft facility without failing (losing sight of him). There will be other vehicles in the pursuit that will attempt to stop you. Remember when pursuing that the red vehicle icon on the map will show the suspects direction and will fade to indicate you are getting too far away.
If you fail at this challenge you will need to “Quit Out” to the main menu and “Resume” your case from the last automatic save checkpoint (which is just prior to entering the house).
Accidents during this pursuit could negatively affect getting a 5 star rating for the case.
Skeletons In The Icebox
Find and inspect all clues inside Okamoto's ransacked apartment.
*Missable* The description for this trophy is somewhat misleading as you must discover not only all the clues inside the ransacked apartment (there are 4 clues that register in the notebook) but you must also discover a New P.O.I. (Person of Interest). The trophy will unlock immediately after finding the last clue at the apartment. Note: The trophy is also dependent upon finding a piece of gold jewelry located at the blast site. If you do not discover this previous matching jewelry item before going to the apartment you will not unlock the trophy.
Here are the clues and their locations:
The Nose Knows
Find and inspect the prop spinner at the Nicholson blast site.
*Missable* This trophy is earned by properly assembling the aircraft part discovered at the scene of Nicholson Electroplating. To find the part simply take the rightmost path while investigating the blast scene. The right side path will turn right a second time, as it curves slightly back upon itself, and the large metal part is easily found upon the ground there. Aligning the pieces correctly unlocks the trophy.
I hope you enjoy the guide and please feel free to leave any comments about improvements.

TheManUtdFan, The bulletproof windshield trophy is a little trickier than the other DLC trophies but the method I detail works very well. The key is to get up close to the vehicles to make for easier headshots.
