Alesha Nichols

  • Profile

Born in Missouri, Alesha’s parents got her to Texas as quick as she could. She grew up in Arlington and graduated summa cum laude from Texas Tech University with Bachelor’s in Business Administration – Marketing in 2011.

After graduating, Alesha moved back to the DFW area to work in a position that allowed her to utilize her degree and focus on doing good with non-profit organizations. She worked as an Account Manager and in-house knowledge expert at a software company that provided a platform for employees of large corporations to log volunteer hours, donate directly to non-profit organizations and manage their corporate social responsibility initiatives. Alesha left the company in 2015 to pursue art full-time and worked for two years as a pet portrait artist drawing and painting family pets of all kinds.

In 2020, Alesha graduated with her JD from SMU Dedman School of Law. While in law school she served as an editor for the SMU International Law Review. She also spent a semester serving as a law clerk for the Honorable Judge Irma C. Ramirez, U.S. Magistrate Judge for the Northern District of Texas. It’s through these experiences that she learned proper legal research and writing and gained exposure to the criminal courts. After serving as an intern in the Northern District of Texas, Alesha spent her summers interning at the City of Grand Prairie working on Class C misdemeanors and working in the felony division at the Denton County District Attorney’s office. During her time at SMU Dedman School of Law, she also served as a student attorney in the VanSickle Family Law Clinic advocating for clients who did not have the funds to hire attorneys for their family law cases.

Upon graduation, she offered a position as an Assistant District Attorney with the Denton County District Attorney’s Office and garnered extensive trial experience on cases from Driving While Intoxicated to Family Violence Assault. Alesha is a strong attorney with a wealth of criminal law knowledge which will benefit our clients in attaining the best possible result for their charges.
