Before she became a full time mom, Nicole worked as a litigation attorney in San Francisco, California, representing clients in high technology, antitrust and contractual disputes. As her career progressed, she became an Arbitrator and Mediator with the America Arbitration Association and was invited to join their Large Complex Case Panel. At the same time she worked on several ground breaking pro bono cases and represented clients involved in energy issues. She was active with the State Bar of California, serving for several years as a Lawyer Representative to the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference.
As of next spring, she will be back in New York full time and ready to address the environmental hazards the state faces from the place she knows best: the court room.
