Nikki turned to the legal profession to find a career where both her empathy and frankness could shine equally bright. Nikki works diligently in using her many skills to resolve files efficiently and effectively, navigating her clients through what is often the most difficult time in their lives.
Nikki strives to earn and deserve the trust her clients place in her every day. She values open exchanges of ideas and information with her clients, and the entire Visionary Team. It is this constant exchange of information and development of knowledge that empowers Nikki to skillfully advocate for her clients.
One file that made all of Nikki’s hard work to become a lawyer worthwhile was where she was able to help her client de-escalate a file that started as contentious litigation to ending as a co-operative separation agreement. Nikki worked to ensure that both the parties and opposing counsel kept perspective so that negotiations stayed on track. Nikki’s success was accomplished by being an active listener, a passionate advocate, and by providing honest and thoughtful advice.
Underlying that easy-going smile, however, is a serious and robust love of food. Nikki’s dream vacation is to fly around the world enjoying the best food in flight. Her death row meal? salmon sushi, New York style pizza, and perogies, followed by a Kit Kat bar and Jeannie’s cake for dessert. Just hold the sour cream.
Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the visionary that has had the most impact on Nikki. Ginsburg’s career in legal profession challenged societal norms and pushed boundaries. Although she has been questioned and discouraged throughout her career, she persisted and rose to the top of the legal profession in the United States by advocating for marginalized people in society.
