“My job is to translate the law into plain English, so that my clients may understand all of their options and are able to make the choices that best suit their goals.”

Nichole Baer joined RKG Law in 2020 after several years in private practice with another Lancaster firm.  While in law school, Nichole interned with the Honorable Amy Williams, an appellate judge for the Sixth Judicial Circuit of Florida and was Treasurer of the Intellectual Property Club.

Nichole’s experience in several practice areas enables her to use a holistic approach to assist clients, recognizing that each client’s needs and wants differ. Each of Nichole’s clients is provided a personalized legal plan, regardless if that plan is an Operating Agreement, a Trademark, resolving issues with the Department of Revenue, a real estate settlement, or drafting estate planning documents. In each case, clients receive personal attention and results that are tailored to their unique situation.

What is something about yourself that will surprise us?

"I lived abroad in Denmark and Peru and, as a result, know how to make a Danish pastry; I also know how to shave an alpaca with a knife. I was once was on a boat that sank in a Belize rainforest. I was on my way to Lamanai, an area with Mayan ruins, and the boat engine flooded while on the New River. It resulted in the boat sinking and me calculating how far I would have to swim to the coast. Thankfully we were rescued before I had to use my swimming skills, which are quite strong after spending half of my life on the Gulf Coast."
