Nicole Aeschleman is a graduate of Santa Clara University and Santa Clara University School of Law where she graduated near the top of her class. 

Academic honors include Phi Sigma Iota (Modern Languages Honors), the Hollace Pugh Service Award, and the Leadership Award. Nicole is conversant in Spanish and is the author of an article entitled “Vienna Convention on Consular Relations: Quo Vadis, America?” published in the Santa Clara Law Review in 2005. Before attending law school, she earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and international business and worked in the financial field.

Nicole brings to every case her years of experience in a wide range of family law actions involving divorce, paternity, child custody and visitation, and child and spousal support. She is passionate about the practice of family law and is experienced in working with high asset cases and complex litigation. Her financial background, along with her legal knowledge and experience, has been invaluable in valuating property, dividing of assets and debts, and handling separate property claims and breach of fiduciary duty claims.
