Spotlight Feature: Get To Know Our Newest Partner

Spotlight Feature: Get To Know Our Newest Partner

Yesterday, Taylor Day proudly announced our newest Partner, Nikki Poole. She is today’s spotlight focus. When Nikki’s not practicing law, this wife and mother of two enjoys spending time with her family outdoors. Read on to learn more about Taylor Day’s newest, and first, female partner. What led you to a legal career? As a child and young adult, I always liked to read and write and enjoyed school so I thought I would take a stab at law school. Fast forward 20 years and here I am. What has been your most interesting or memorable case and why? Cases under the Florida Workers’ Compensation Act and the Longshore Act can be pretty interesting. However, in my first couple of years practicing, Bo and I handled a case under the Longshore Act that arose out of September 11. It was factually interesting and also provided me with a quick opportunity to learn numerous tasks from the stage of discovery all the way through an appeal. What are one or two things about you that most people don’t know? Most people already know this but I am a huge pop culture and music junkie and I love karaoke. Most people do not know that I spent time each week pricing and ordering food and planning menus for the Blessings in a Backpack program (through my church).
