The Successful Lawyer Podcast


The origin story of Colorado Lawyer Team (COLawTeam) started in 2015, when Justie Nicol started her solo law firm, Nicol Law Offices.

Since then, multiple team members, an entirely new practice area (or three), and several attorneys have been added.

What was once Nicol Law Offices is now COLawTeam, a full-fledged criminal defense, family law, employment, and civil litigation practice built to be the law firm of the future.

Practice Areas

We work to ensure clients have effective and efficient criminal defense no matter what level of offense they are charged with. Because although it may not be a life or death case for us, it’s still our client’s lives and we care about their well-being!
