Nicky is a former prosecutor and public defender known for her honesty and integrity in the community. Immediately following law school, she served as an Assistant Public Defender in Boston, Massachusetts where she practiced in the Boston Municipal Court (BMC), Charlestown, and East Boston. Her mother’s prayers brought her back to North Carolina where she served as an Assistant District Attorney in district and superior courts of Onslow and Jones counties. While in this role, Nicky prosecuted cases ranging from speeding tickets to First Degree Murder. She successfully tried approximately 20 jury trials to verdict in this role. In 2017, Attorney Dobson transitioned back into the role of an Assistant Public Defender in New Hanover County and served for 4 years. While here, she focused on High-Level Felony cases and defended her clients with all of their criminal cases that ranged from traffic to First Degree Murder. In both roles, she thrived at analyzing cases and procuring justice.

Dobson Legal, PLLC is a lifelong dream of Nicky; she believes every client deserves access to competent legal representation. She works to ensure the members of her community have a will/trust in place, understand the importance of business formation to achieve generational wealth, and have the best advocate on their criminal defense team.
