Summary

Nicole focuses her practice on the area of family law including advising clients on matters involving divorce, custody, spousal support, child support, equitable distribution and domestic violence. She is well versed in drafting complex pre and post judgment motions as well as nondissolution applications. She also counsels clients in negotiating and drafting marital settlement agreements.

In 2017 Nicole became an accredited New Jersey Family and Divorce Mediator and is able to serve both individuals and attorneys in this capacity.

Prior to joining the firm, Nicole served as a law clerk to the Honorable Katherine R. Dupuis, P.J.F.P. of the New Jersey Superior Court in Union County. During her clerkship she worked exclusively in family law with a concentration on pre and post judgment matrimonial matters.
