Nicole DeVanon, an associate at Girardi Keese, graduated cum laude from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She received her juris doctorate from Southwestern University School of Law where she graduated with honors and in the top ten percent of her class.

Now in her fourth year at Girardi Keese, Ms. DeVanon specializes in mass torts, premises liability, products liability, insurance bad faith, personal injury, and all aspects of civil litigation. Currently, Ms. DeVanon is working on a mass tort against Shell Oil in which Girardi Keese represents approximately 2,000 plaintiffs who have had their health and property irreparably damaged. It is always difficult to take on a big corporation but it is immensely rewarding.
