Discovering the Y of Law

About Nicole



Hey there Gen Why’er!

As you can tell in the picture to the left, I’m a pretty happy person. But rewind just 5 years, to when I first passed the bar and started practicing, and you’ll see a completely different picture. A few months into my lawyerhood, I noticed I was unhappy, stressed, and unsatisfied every day.  I chucked it up to being an overwhelmed new lawyer in the wrong practice area (initially, I practiced Family Law). As time went on and my unhappiness grew, I began to realize that it wasn’t the lack of experience or the practice area I was in, it was the entire practice of law that made me unhappy. So I decided to change my perspective! I opened my own law practice focusing on Fashion Law. After 2 years of practicing on my own, I realized that my heart just wasn’t in the practice of law all together. So I left! My two year solo journey led me to creating this podcast.

Now, I run a social media and content marketing company aimed at helping lawyers build more valuable relationships with clients. Along with running my new business, Abboud Media, (you can find that over at, I like to spend my time volunteering and meeting people, usually through bar associations or community organizations. I get excited talking to fellow young attorneys and hearing about all of the amazing things they’re accomplishing. I have 2 siblings (I’m the middle child!), 2 adorable nephews, and I run for fun.

I’ve been running since my high school cross country days and will continue to run until my knees give out.

Now that you know a little bit more about me, I want to get to know a little bit more about you. Connect with me through LinkedIn (Nicole Abboud), Twitter (@nicoleabboud), Instagram (@nic_abboud), or email ( and just say hello!
