As the daughter of a Pierce County District Court Judicial Assistant, Nichole grew up with a curiosity about criminal law and procedure. After graduating from Gonzaga University with a B.A. in International Relations as well as Political Science, she attended Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. During law school, Nichole gained experience in criminal law working as a judicial clerk at Orleans Parish Criminal Court. Seeing the inefficiencies and injustices in the criminal justice system first-hand motivated her to pursue a career as a criminal defense attorney.

A native of the South Puget Sound, Nichole moved back home to begin her career as an attorney. Shortly after passing the Bar, she joined Puget Law Group as a contract attorney. After a short hiatus working at a civil law firm in Seattle, Nichole returned to PLG as an Associate Attorney.

Nichole fully understands the challenges one goes through when faced with criminal allegations. She is a zealous advocate for her clients and fights for the best possible result in every case.

Nichole lives in Lake Tapps and when she is not practicing law, she enjoys traveling, exploring the outdoors, trying new restaurants, and hanging out with her dog, Bentley.

My Hearing
Nichole was great With my case, she knew exactly what she was doing along with her paralegal Julianna that was straightforward with questions and answered you as soon as She could get to you I was able to get five of my charges dismissed out of the seven with no gel time and to make sure I just buy my rules before dealing with her. I felt like a chicken with my head ran off, but she saved the day Thank you Nicole & your firm I told

Great attorney
To tell you a little of my case, I was going through a case involving CPS as my new born son was born positive for methamphetamines. My wife and mother of my new born son at the time was also positive prior to birth and at birth without my knowledge of. My wife feared I might take "our" son away because I did not do drugs and could because I was honest and had a full time job with no run ins with the law. My intention was never to do that to my wife at the time, I was more than willing to work it out with her in an attempt to repair our marriage and do what CPS was requesting as well as keep our son safe. During the first few weeks of involvement after the birth, my wife failed a UA and in turn knowing that CPS can take the baby away put all allegations on me, one being domestic violence. I hired Nicole for that incident, of which she proved that I was innocent and the case was dismissed later. During this incident my wife filed rape charges on me a month after this last allegation of DV. I found out by a police officer calling me, I asked Nicole if she could talk with them and represent me for that as well. Nicole had a good team working with Zach Myers whom not only represented me but I felt confident having someone not only law savvy but confident when they talked before the judge. I feel that those two things are critical in having great representation. That case also got dismissed proving my innocence. While Nicole did not have any part of my CPS case, helping me with those two allegations and proving my innocence protected me from incarceration, and the ability to divorce and get full custody of my son today. I am very pleased with her work as I have learned through this process of what to look for in choosing a good lawyer for a case that is needed. The other thing I found out to be great about Nicole is that she is compassionate, patient and understanding though the process from start to finish. She always had time to take my call or respond in a timely matter.

Pitbull
Nichole was the attorney assigned to my case when my attorney from puget law group (Nick) was unavailable for the hearing. She handled an anti harassment order filed against me filled with lies and Nichole was ferocious from the start. She kept me updated and talked me through the whole process. She showed no mercy and got the case dismissed. She speaks with confidence and you can tell she cared about my outcome. Nichole and this firm care about their clients. Thank you Nichole.

Excellent negotiator with amazing communication skills!
Nichole provided exceptional service when I was in need of legal help due to a DUI charge. She amended this charge to a negligent driving charge. I felt extremely comfortable and supported by her services during my hearing. Nichole has excellent communication skills and ensured that I had all of my questions answered during and after the process. I highly recommend Nichole Fisher when in need of legal support!

The worst wasted 8 months of my life.
Nichole is more worried about climbing the ladder then people's money or criminal record. She sucked day 1. I told her I wanted my money back after our first hearing. She dragged me on never filing one motion on false charges, She made huge mistakes in my case, used up all the continuance. Then when I comain about her to Dan, he withdraws from the case. Doesn't refund any money to this point, none of my files or disks returned. She is the Worst attorney I've ever known. She more if an infractions attorney. Which hello public, that means might as well have a public defender . Puget Law Group as a whe is basically a DUI lawfir.. They can't handle complicated cases, shoot they can't handle misdemeanor cases. If your in real hot water, stay clear.
