With more than 25 years of experience in Family Law, Nicole joined GRB Law in the spring of 2023. She is well-known and respected throughout Western Pennsylvania for representing clients in all aspects of support, divorce, and custody matters, with a particular expertise in complex divorce matters, including equitable distribution and support matters that involve high net worth estates.

In addition to more traditional family-based matters, Nicole is also certified in the methods of Collaborative Law, is a trainer, a mediator and maintains an extensive appellate practice. Complimenting her family law practice, she also assists her clients with their estate planning needs.

An active member of the legal community, Nicole serves on numerous boards and committees. She currently serves as Co-Chair of the Opinions Committee of the ACBA's Family Law Section, as well as maintaining an active role with the Collaborative Law Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania, amongst others.
