Nicole Killoran, Esq.

Nicole was born in Fairbanks, Alaska and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah.  She attended the University of Utah, where she graduated with a B.S. in Environmental Studies in 2004.  Prior to going to law school, Nicole worked for five years as the lead paralegal in a busy collections law firm in Salt Lake City. 

In 2009 Nicole ventured into the East to attend Vermont Law School, drawn by the school’s environmental law program, the best in the nation for several years running.  While at VLS she served as an academic mentor, teaching assistant, and as a managing editor for the Vermont Law Review.  In 2012, she graduated and received a Juris Doctor degree (magna cum laude) as well as a Masters of Environmental Law and Policy (summa cum laude) and a Certificate in Energy Law.  Nicole joined Bauer Gravel Farnham in September 2012.

Nicole sat for the Vermont bar exam in July 2012, and was admitted to practice in October of that year.  She has clerked for Justice Brian Burgess with the Vermont Supreme Court, as well as the Litigation Department of the Agency of Natural Resources, and the firm of Tarrant, Gillies, Merriman, & Richardson in Montpelier.

Nicole’s practice at Bauer Gravel Farnham includes all areas of litigation and collections, but she is particularly interested in administrative and environmental law, and land use, municipal, and energy law.  Nicole is a member of the Vermont Bar Association, and regularly contributes to the Supreme Court of Vermont Law Blog (SCOV Law).

Nicole lives in Burlington with her husband.  She has a Catahoula leopard dog, Hayduke, and two budgies, Octavian and Olivia.  In her spare time, Nicole enjoys playing her piano and cello, singing a cappella, running, biking, hiking, rock climbing, belly dancing, and gardening.
