Nicole is a consummate professional and we’re proud of her accomplishments. This promotion is well deserved.”

She is an active member of the Estate Planning Council of Louisville and the Louisville Bar Association. In addition, Nally was honored as a Kentucky Colonel and has received citations from the Kentucky House of Representatives and Kentucky Senate for her leadership in the Louisville community.
