Bio:

Nicoal C. Sperrazza began her legal career in civil litigation but expanded her focus to include family law within a few of years of beginning her practice of law. Her experience as an effective litigator in civil litigation laid the groundwork for her practical expertise in family law. Nicoal is known for the personal care and attention she provides to her clients who are facing difficult transitions whether it is a contract dispute or a dissolution of marriage. She has represented clients across the country, as well as in matters involving foreign jurisdictions. Her goal for all her clients is that they are able to move through the legal processes and go on to happier and healthier lives as a result.

Nicoal is actively involved in leadership throughout the legal community, as well as a passionate supporter of and volunteer for Metro Volunteer Lawyers.  She currently serves as 1st VP of the Denver Bar Association, and also serves as Chair of the Colorado Bar Association Litigation Section Executive Council, where she is able to make an impact on policy and legislative matters that affect litigation and the community as a whole.

In her spare time, Nicoal enjoys her time chasing after her fiercely independent toddler, spending time with her family, and is a cooking and baking enthusiast.
