My name is Nicole Prebeck. I graduated in 2002 from the University of Kentucky with a BA in Psychology and then from Salmon P. Chase College of Law with a JD in 2007. Attending UK was a dream of mine and I was thrilled to receive my undergraduate degree in 7 semesters and have some time off before attending law school.
I was admitted to the Kentucky Bar in October, 2007. Upon graduation, I served as a judicial law clerk for the Hon. JoAnn Wise, Chief Judge, Fayette Family Court until August, 2008. Since 2008, I have practiced in the area of domestic relations/family law. I am also certified as a Family Law Mediator by the Kentucky Administrative Office of the Courts. In order to obtain such certification, I took a 40 hour mediation course, taught by AOC, and then co-mediated with a certified mediator for 15 hours.
Additionally, I am a trained parenting coordinator. My training was completed at the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL. In addition to practicing family law, I serve as the co-chair to the Fayette County Bar Association’s Domestic Relations Practice section 2011-2012. I also serves on the Fayette County Bar Association’s Modest Means Panel, which is a service that helps people gain access to an attorney at a reduced rate (sliding scale) when they could not otherwise afford legal counsel.
I’ve known since the age of 8 that I wanted to be an attorney and practice family law because my parents divorced when I was very young, and they were involved in the legal system regarding custody/visitation/child support for most of my childhood. My mother’s attorney was a big influence, as was the judge (Former Kentucky Supreme Court Justice, James Keller) who presided over my parents’ case, in my desire to become an attorney.
I have called Lexington home for over 18 years. I have experienced many sides of family law, as a child of divorced parents who were in and out of the court system which has complimented my family law practice. I have worked as a judicial law clerk and now understand the human aspect as a private family law attorney. With such unique experiences in my background, I can provide valuable insight and compassion when assisting clients through the legal process in family court.
In her spare time, I like to travel (calling places like San Francisco, CA and Paris, France among my favorite cities) and visit with friends. I have 2 dogs whom I spoil rotten.
Nicole is licensed to practice law in the State of Kentucky.
