  • Jacey L Liu

    I have immense admiration for Nicole. It is obvious to anyone with the opportunity to see her in action on a regular basis that she is a brilliant, tireless, and unparalleled advocate for her clients. For these reasons, I immediately think of Nicole when I am asked for a referral or need a second opinion on local practice issues.
