Memphis Attorney Uses Special Skills to Give Back

Nicole Grida engaged in many extracurricular activities as a child, and continues her extramural involvement as a lawyer. A graduate of the University of Tennessee School of Law, Grida is an associate with Leitner, Williams, Dooley & Napolitan PLLC in Memphis where she has handled workers’ compensation cases, nursing home and medical negligence defense, car wrecks and general liabilities. Additionally, Grida serves on the public service committee for the Memphis Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division and coordinates the Memphis and Shelby County High School Mock Trial Competition. “If I wasn’t doing mock trial, I’d be doing something else because being a lawyer is more than just being in court,” Grida told the Memphis Daily News. “Lawyers should be stewards of their community, they should be giving back in some way.”
