October Luncheon: The Use of Social Media in Investigating Workers' Compensation claims

Please join us on October 16 at 11:30am for a luncheon and a presentation by Nicole Tackett, Esq. of Vernis & Bowling of Charlotte, LLC.


Nicole is an Ohio native, but has called North Carolina home since she was twelve years old. After graduating from UNC-Charlotte in 1992, Nicole taught world literature and served as community service coordinator in the International Baccalaureate program, which, at that time, was a newly integrated magnet program in the Charlotte Mecklenburg school district. Following the birth of her first son, Nicole attended law school at UNC-Chapel Hill, graduating in 2000. She has exclusively practiced workers’ compensation defense since that time. Prior to joining Vernis & Bowling in 2013, Nicole was a partner in the Charlotte office of Cranfill, Sumner & Hartzog, LLP.
Nicole manages and defends cases through all stages of the workers’ compensation process, from the initial determination of compensability through settlement. Additionally, Nicole litigates cases at the hearing level and at various stages of appeal, including appeals to the North Carolina Court of Appeals. Nicole has mediated well over 300 cases and has taken dozens more to hearing.
*UNC Charlotte will also do a brief presentation regarding the addition of a RMI concentration in the Risk & Insurance Master’s program.
