Nicole C. Armstrong

About me

I focus my practice on all aspects of family law litigation representing clients in divorces, paternity actions, support issues, and child custody matters in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.  Prior to opening Armstrong Law, P.C., I practiced family law at a boutique law firm just north of Boston where I represented clients in numerous courts throughout the state of Massachusetts including Probate and Family Court, Civil Court and Criminal Court.

I am a trained Limited Assistance Representation Attorney, Guardian Ad Litem, Mediator, Conciliator and Collaborative Law Attorney.

I have been selected by Super Lawyers®, a rating service of lawyers, for inclusion in the 2012 New England Rising Stars, a list to which only 2.5% of eligible attorneys are selected.  The selection process is similar to that of Super Lawyers and based on peer nominations, peer evaluations and independent research. I was also recognized as an Outstanding Young Lawyer in the Top Women Attorneys section as published in Boston Magazine in April, 2013.

I have served as a faculty member for the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education, Family Law Trial Advocacy Workshop and is a volunteer Lawyer of the Day for the Middlesex Probate and Family Court.

I am a Dean's List graduate of Suffolk University Law School. During my time at Suffolk, I received the Oral Advocacy Award in the First Year Moot Court Section Competition and was a Member of the National Trial Team as well as the National Women's Law Student's Association (NWLSA). I was also the Co-Director of NWLSA Sojourner Truth National Moot Court Trial Competition and participated in the Moot Court Honor Board Interscholastic Mock Trial Competition. In addition, I was a Legal Intern in the criminal division of the Rhode Island Attorney General's Office as well as a Student Prosecutor (Rule 3.03 Certified) for the Massachusetts Middlesex County District Attorney's Office (Lowell).

I achieved my Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology in 2000 from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and was a member of Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology.

I am a brother of the Alpha Phi Omega, Kappa Omicron Chapter – A national co-ed fraternity dedicated to community service, where I have held many board positions including Academic Chair, Rush Coordinator and Nominations Committee. 

I am also a proud alumna of the University of Massachusetts Minuteman Marching Band (UMMB) under the direction of the nationally acclaimed late George N. Parks.
