Nicole Furlani I was born in Maybrook, New York, a small town not too far from New York City. I moved to Naples, Florida when I was young, but could still remember enough of home that I missed the small town vibe. It wasn't until I came to DeLand for my undergraduate studies that I was able to experience that feeling again. Like all small towns, DeLand has a unique charm that has made attending Stetson University all the more worthwhile.
I started developing an interest in law in high school. Luckily, my high school offered a law class, and after the first few weeks, I knew that law was the field I wanted to pursue. I started getting involved with anything law based, from volunteering at the local courthouse through the Teen Court program to being a competing member on my high school's mock trial team. As a student at Stetson, I have continued my love of law by joining the undergraduate mock trial program, where I was placed as an attorney on the A Team my first year. As an undergraduate, I study Sociology with a focus on Criminology, which both provide an analysis of the law and how laws affect the population as a whole.
The most striking thing I've learned from my four years of mock trial is the importance of a great defense. And while mock trial handles fictitious charges, working for Thompson Law has shown me just how much truth this lesson holds in real cases as well. No matter the case, everyone is entitled to a defense that is knowledgeable, attentive, and understanding. That's part of what draws me to Thompson Law. We're a small firm that focuses on each client and keeps you informed every step of the way. Here, you can be sure that whoever you're talking to cares about the case, and more importantly, the client.
I'm only just beginning my path to becoming an attorney, but each day in this field presents a new opportunity to learn and grow, and it's a path I've become increasingly excited to walk down.
