“We are fortunate and excited to have Nicole promoted to partner at the firm. Her integrity, outstanding leadership and impeccable work ethic are an inspiration, and we are delighted that she is continuing to advance her career here at Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell,” said Edward Waters, Managing Partner.

Her experience at Legal Services and at the firm have allowed her to provide focused and insightful legal advice to our clients as they traverse the many complexities of operating in a federally-funded environment,” said Edward Waters.

Ms. Bacon holds a J.D. from American University, Washington College of Law, and a B.A. from the University of Virginia.  Prior to joining FTLF, Nicole worked as a staff attorney with Legal Services of Northern Virginia and Rappahannock Legal Services, representing low-income clients, including Spanish-speaking clients, in family law, housing and consumer matters.
