Tell us about YOU!! (Who are you & What do you do?) I am Nicole Wood Hermsdorf, Esq., LL.M, owner of Hermsdorf Law, LLC, a divorce litigation and mediation law firm in Newburyport, Massachusetts.
What makes you different/stand out in your industry? I have an advanced law degree in the financial industry and was as in-house general counsel for 11 years. After going through my own high conflict divorce (and 3 attorneys) I decided I could do it better. I took a huge leap of faith to start my own law firm. I stand out in this industry because it is my passion to help people, and I feel good at the end of the day knowing I made a difference.
What do your clients love about you? My clients love the fact that I am both empathetic and aggressive.
What is the best advice you can share with others? The best advice I have learned is to embrace uncertainty rather than fearing it.
How has the Women’s Business League helped you? The Women’s Business League has given me the opportunity to be surrounded with fearless women of different ages, industries, and experiences. Collectively we support each other whether it be a referral or listening to ideas. In addition, the Women’s Business League is a platform to help elevate one’s business, and an organization the creates strong bonds in the community.
