Meet Nicole Hancock
Nicole knows the practice of law can be a strategic game of power plays, cat and mouse, etc. Nicole is not part of the game to her clients. She cuts through the "B.S." to achieve quicker, more effective results.
Nicole was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington where she attended Mt. Tahoma High School. Nicole stayed close to home (but not too close) and attended Gonzaga University where she obtained her Bachelor's Degree in Political Science. As soon as she graduated, she immediately attended Gonzaga School of Law and obtained a Juris Doctorate in 2008.
During law school, Nicole worked as an intern at the City of Spokane Prosecutor's Office for two years. She soon realized she did not want to pursue a career in prosecution, but did enjoy the "family" atmosphere in the office. Nicole realized a smaller firm with a focus on relationships and a work/life balance were important to her. It took some time, but she found that firm with Alliance Law Group, Inc. (formerly Faubion, Reeder, Fraley & Cook, P.S.) in 2010.
The practice of law is sometimes a strategic game of power plays, cat and mouse, etc. Nicole's goal for her clients is not to be part of the game by cutting through the "B.S." to achieve quicker, more effective results.
Nicole practices in several different areas of law that include Estate Planning, Probate, Real Estate, Business, Collections, Landlord/Tenant, HOA, etc. Due to the variety of practice areas, she gets to be an advocate, a guide, and a support system for her clients. It is an honor and a privilege for Nicole to help families plan for their future.
When Nicole is not watching Gonzaga Basketball or cheering on the Seahawks, she LOVES spending time with her amazing husband, family and friends. Nicole also enjoys traveling, checking out local breweries and new restaurants, and spoiling her fur babies.
A huge priority for Nicole is giving back to the community. Nicole has been a member of Lakewood Rotary since 2014. She serves on several committees outside of Rotary's weekly commitment. One of the committees includes Next Step- a program which provides weekly mentoring for two years to a high school student in the Clover Park School District to assist with the college admission process. Nicole also heads up our internship program at the law firm and has supervised several students from local community colleges as they get an introduction to the legal field.
Nicole also serves as President of the Lakewood Community Foundation Fund and has served on the Board since 2012. She volunteers monthly with various organizations including EFN, city events, park clean ups and much more.
