Every case is personal, and every story is unique—whether someone is wronged by a trusted business partner, by a lawyer hired to protect an interest, or by an individual, corporation, or manufacturer that should have done the right thing. Nicole is skilled at gathering and telling each client’s story. She is organized, analytical, and precise, but her advocacy for her clients is empowered by her empathy and her passion for being a trial lawyer. Nicole represents clients in high stakes business litigation, plaintiff’s legal malpractice, and catastrophic personal injury cases. She prepares a case from the start as though it will proceed to trial, always keeping in mind the ultimate goal of the client. In doing so, she has helped her clients obtain multi-million dollar recoveries for the harms done by others.
Nicole represents clients in state and federal courts, and she practices out of the firm’s Colorado and California offices. She has tried cases to juries, to judges, and through arbitration, but also strives to reach early resolution where doing so serves the best interests of her clients. Nicole is adept at using litigation software to comb through volumes of documents, and she does this in order to boil a case down to those that tell the story to a jury. Those stories stem from a range of issues, including contract disputes, trade secrets, fraud, betrayals by business partners or lawyers, and injuries suffered at the hands of a driver, landowner, doctor, or product manufacturer. Nicole is a graduate of the Trial Lawyers College, a three-week college founded by Gerry Spence that further educates trial lawyers who are committed to the jury system and who seek to represent and obtain justice for individuals.
As a result of her successes on behalf of her clients, Nicole has been included in the Best Lawyers in America© for Professional Malpractice—Plaintiffs.
