About
Nicole Gaines-Phelps:

My experience is unique. I have close to 20 years of legal experience, including eight years as a judicial officer. I have practiced in both the private and public sectors with legal experience in criminal, family, civil, and administrative law.

I am passionate about eliminating barriers around accessing legal services and delivering justice with compassion and have worked personally and professionally to that end. I also serve on the boards of local non-profits to assist vulnerable residents in need.

I believe that unique perspective will add needed breadth and depth to our Superior Court bench.
