Since 1999, Ms. Nicolo has worked with a select group of boutique law firms specializing in negligence and personal injury litigation. Her experience in the field has spanned more than a decade, with a concentration in motor vehicle, premises liability and construction accidents. She considers herself a people person and is particularly devoted to the practice of personal injury because it allows her to fight for her clients and their individual needs.

Advocating for people comes naturally to Ms. Nicolo, which is why she believes the best representation is based on an understanding that every client is unique. She tailors each case to maximize recovery, while meeting the particular wishes of the client.

She has extensive courtroom experience and has litigated cases involving soft tissue injuries, severe scarring and disfigurement, complex fractures requiring surgery, and wrongful death. She is also a fierce advocate for the victims of traumatic brain injury and is a member of the firm's executive committee on TBI. Whether negotiating a settlement or managing complex litigation, Ms. Nicolo handles each case with an attention to detail every client deserves. Having represented thousands of clients, she is a skilled negotiator with extensive knowledge of trial preparation and practice and has recovered millions of dollars for her clients.
