Nicole Grida defends corporate clients in complex product liability and general civil litigation. For more than 15 years, she has represented individuals, professionals and businesses in products liability, premises liability, automobile negligence, medical malpractice and other high exposure matters involving catastrophic injuries and wrongful death claims.
Nicole has extensive trial experience in state and federal court and has tried more than 50 cases to verdict. She has prepared and deposed a wide range of technical experts including accident reconstructionists, economists, OSHA compliance experts, vocational experts, physicians, psychiatrists, toxicologists, fire origin and cause experts, engineers, DOT compliance experts, and human factors experts. Though Nicole works remotely through the Dallas office, she lives in the Memphis area, readily available to assist clients locally and statewide.
Nicole also brings a wealth of knowledge and perspective from her time serving as litigation counsel at a Fortune 500 company. In addition to managing more than 100 premises liability, automobile liability and workers’ compensation cases, she developed best practices for responding to third-party subpoenas and oversaw production of documents and witnesses for depositions in non-party matters. With management and strategic planning skills honed by her in-house experience, she works to understand her clients’ business objectives and develops legal strategies aligned with them.
In her free time, Nicole enjoys spending time exploring the Bluff City, reading, binge watching reality television and traveling to new places. Her goal is to visit all 50 states by the end of 2023, and she currently has only five states left to explore. Her five nieces and nephews and chocolate lab mix, Carmelo Thurston, all keep her busy as well.
