Nicole D. Smith


At Collins Family & Elder Law Group

Nicole originally began working with Collins Family & Elder Law Group in 2021 as a Paralegal based in the Firm’s Dilworth office in Charlotte, North Carolina. She supports Sarah R. Sykes, Alexa Litt, and provides backup support to other legal teams as needed. Her goal as a paralegal is to provide the support needed by both her supervising attorney and clients to obtain the best possible outcome.

Education & Experience

Nicole was born and raised in Southern California and now calls North Carolina her home. She graduated from Fayetteville State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice.

Nicole began her legal career 29 years ago and has experience in many different areas of law, including product liability, juvenile justice, personal injury, medical malpractice, social security, criminal defense, and estate planning. She began focusing solely on family law over 20 years ago. Nicole became a Paralegal Certified by the North Carolina State Bar in 2006.

Personal & Professional Activities

Nicole enjoys spending all her time away from the office with her husband attending concerts, musicals, plays, and sporting events.

Personal Philosophy

I believe it is important for one to stop and breathe amid turmoil and to remember that you can fall, but you can also rise. I strive daily to remind clients who are experiencing life-altering, emotional and stressful situations of this belief by lending a compassionate ear with understanding, and assist clients with reclaiming their self-control and navigating through this process.
