Nicole Galli is part litigator, part entrepreneur, but 100% dedicated to helping women in the legal space pursue their own entrepreneurial success. A few years ago, Nicole left Big Law to start up her solo practice. A self-proclaimed “joiner”, Nicole went out looking for an organization she could turn to during her transition and when she didn’t find one that met her needs she decided to start Women Owned Law.  Women Owned Law provides resources and networking opportunities for women in the legal industry.
