Nicole Gehringer joined Harris, Hunt & Derr, P.A. as an associate attorney in 2017 practicing exclusively marital and family law. Her practice combines alternative dispute processes, such as mediation and collaborative divorce, with traditional litigation. Before entering private practice, Nicole was a Judicial Staff Attorney in the Thirteenth Circuit Court where she worked closely with several family and dependency judges to conduct legal research, counsel on a variety of complex and unusual legal issues, and draft proposed orders, judgments and memoranda of law. Nicole’s prior experience provides her with unique insight into the decision-making processes of the judiciary, which can be beneficial in not only her litigated cases, but also her settlement-oriented cases.

Nicole received her J.D., magna cum laude, from WMU Cooley Law School, graduating third in her class with a concentration in litigation. She earned the Certificate of Merit (highest grade) in eleven courses and was presented with the Outstanding Scholar Award by Phi Delta Phi, a legal honor society. Prior to law school, Nicole graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida.

Nicole is a native of St. Petersburg and still resides there with her husband, Kenny, daughter, and son. As a mother of two young children, Nicole believes in the importance of minimizing the negative impact of parental conflicts on children through efficient resolution and problem solving tailored to the unique needs of each family.
