Nicole Dell’Orfano is one of the best paralegals we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Not only is Nicole dedicated to helping the clients who come to us, but she is also committed to helping other members of our staff. Nicole has been our paralegal for the past 5 1/2 years and takes care of everyone who comes through our doors.
Nicole’s interest in law started during school. She says, “I was pursuing a medical career, and I’d been in that field for 10 years before I extended my focus to include criminal justice and philosophy.” Taking on the three subjects went smoothly for her. “I was majoring in criminal justice and biology and minoring in philosophy; everything kind of ran together. The subjects intertwined with each other, so it wasn’t a rough transition at all.”
When Nicole graduated from Rivier University, she learned about Nixon, Vogelman, Slawsky & Simoneau from the career center. “I learned all about the firm and applied soon afterward. Since I first started working here, I’ve really enjoyed it. Everyone here is awesome and works well together. It’s like a family, and everyone has each other’s back. The staff and attorneys are caring people who genuinely want to do the best we can for our clients,” she says.
Not only is Nicole an excellent paralegal with extensive knowledge in the medical field, but she also runs her own business — a construction painting company. “I’m always working,” she admits. “When I’m not in the office at the firm, I’m busy with the business, and I’m constantly working on my house too.”
When Nicole was a teenager and needed a job, she happened to meet someone who took her under his wing and taught her the ins and outs of construction painting. Ever since, Nicole has taken what she learned and combined it with hard work and diligence to run her business.
Finding free time for herself can be tricky, but when she does, Nicole spends time with her family. “We try and do a lot of outdoorsy activities. I like to go zip lining and hiking mostly. Otherwise, we just relax at home.”
All of us at Nixon, Vogelman, Slawsky & Simoneau want to thank Nicole for her continued zeal for our firm. We’re grateful to have such a wonderful paralegal on our team!
