Meet Nicara! Nicara was born and raised in California but relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada for college. She graduated and received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in Criminal Justice.

Nicara had known since middle school that she wanted to pursue a career in law, but it wasn’t until participating in a mock trial that her passion grew stronger. During Nicara’s time at UNLV, she joined the Pom/Dance team and also became captain of the Mock Trial team for two years. In 2018, she was a part of the Chapman University Fowler Law School Plus program. Nicara found the program to be extremely rewarding as it consisted of volunteering with multiple legal organizations to help the community of Orange County.

Before joining BWB&O and while she was finishing up her undergraduate degree, Nicara gained experience at her first law firm supporting Criminal Law, Family Law, Civil Law, and Post Conviction Appellate cases. In February 2022, Nicara was hired as a Legal Secretary in BWB&O’s Las Vegas office on Devin R. Gifford’s team. She is planning on becoming an attorney and is currently studying for the LSAT!

Nicara enjoys spending her free time with her husband, dancing, and playing tennis.

Q: How has your experience at BWB&O helped you in your career development?

A: BWB&O has allowed me to develop professionally in so many ways. I have learned the ins and outs of the legal field and gained an understanding of the most effective ways to communicate with clients, attorneys, etc. Overall, my experience at BWB&O has been invaluable in helping me with the skills and knowledge necessary for a future successful career.

Q: What have been your most meaningful accomplishments so far? 

A: My most meaningful accomplishments as a legal secretary have been creating and implementing systems that allow the attorneys on my team to maximize their time and work efficiently.

Q:  What methods do you use to stay motivated and focused? 

A: I stay organized, and plan ahead to stay motivated and focused. I appreciate that every day is different and look forward to tackling daily tasks.

Q:  Who would you attribute your success to? 

A: My desire to learn and grow has contributed to my success. Along with being a part of a great team that is always there to offer me guidance.

A special thank you to Nicara for sharing her experience and good luck on your LSAT exam!
