Nicole Cusack was born in Alaska and spent summers helping her parents run their fishing and hunting lodge on Lake Iliamna. After going to school and gaining aggressive litigation experience working in the lower-48, she was drawn back to the fresh air and wild spirit of Alaska.
Nicole combines her Alaskan-grown perseverance, grit, and common sense with high-level litigation experience, providing her clients with the best of both worlds.
Nicole has spent her legal career representing individuals in high-stakes litigation throughout the United States. She has fought and prevailed against the some of the biggest defendants in the country and will take on any giant to fight for justice and accountability.
The cornerstone of her practice is a client-first approach that ensures every decision she makes is tailored to provide aggressive and dedicated representation. Her consistent winning results prove the value of her uniquely attentive approach. Nicole believes that the only way to successfully represent her clients is to get personally involved.
“I get to know my clients, their families, their kids. In my practice, it is critical to truly understand the full extent of the impact of what a client has endured. When negotiating settlements or talking to juries at the courthouse, first and foremost, I am thinking about my clients and their families.”

Nicole began her practice with a prominent plaintiff firm in California.
