Managing attorney, Nichole Dougherty, obtained her Associates of Science – Criminal Justice degree from Mott Community College in 2005, and her Bachelor of Applied Science – Criminal Justice degree from Ferris State University in 2010. She started law school immediately after that and graduated from Thomas M. Cooley Law School (the largest law school in the country) in 2014.
