Nicole R. Coniglio is a Practice Group Partner in the firm’s Fort Lauderdale office. She is part of the Justice for Kids Division, the firm’s national practice dedicated to providing legal services to abused, disabled, and catastrophically injured children harmed at home, in child welfare and foster care settings, group home settings and residential treatment centers, as well as all children harmed by the acts of others.
Nicole focuses her practice on Foster Care and Disabled Persons Damages, Civil Rights, Personal Injury and Children’s Rights. Prior to joining Kelley Kronenberg, she was part of the legal team at a prominent Fort Lauderdale firm working directly with children’s rights attorney Howard Talenfeld.
Nicole has been honored for her work in securing private duty nursing care for a medically complex child, a benefit for which the child needed and was eligible for, but that had been previously denied by the state. As a result of this case and other public criticism of the Agency for Health Care Administration’s policies, the agency changed its rules, enabling hundreds of other Florida children to receive similar benefits to which they were entitled.
Nicole earned her Bachelor of Science degree, cum laude, from Florida State University and then went on to earn her Juris Doctor degree, summa cum laude, from Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center.
