Nicolette’s handling of high-profile police misconduct cases has been instrumental in securing numerous verdicts and settlements including a record-breaking $44.7 million verdict against the City of Chicago in a civil rights case and a $21.3 million verdict against the City of Chicago after two of its police officers were found liable for the death of 37-year-old mother of five children. She currently serves on the team representing the family of George Floyd in the civil lawsuit against the City of Minneapolis and the four officers involved in Mr. Floyd’s death, and on the team representing the children of Daniel Prude against the City of Rochester and its officers for Mr. Prude’s death.
