Vicky Nsikak, an associate at Littler Mendelson P.C., is this month’s One to Watch because of her professionalism, her reputation for excellence in her practice, and her unwavering dedication to service in the community. Vicky counsels and represents employers in various areas of labor and employment law before state and federal courts and state and federal agencies responsible for handling workplace disputes. Her litigation practice includes cases involving discrimination and harassment in the workplace, civil rights matters, and violations of employment statutes. Vicky also advises clients and provides guidance on a range of human resource issues, including developing employee policies and handbooks, conducting investigations and responding to employee complaints.
As a 2012 cum laude graduate of SMU Dedman School of Law, Vicky served as an editor for the SMU Law Review, the president of the Black Law Student Association, and an intern for the Hon. Martin Hoffman in the 68th District Court of Dallas County. After law school, Vicky was a federal law clerk to the Hon. Renée Harris Toliver in the U. S. District Court, Northern District of Texas.
Vicky’s DAYL involvement is impressive, to say the least. Vicky was a member of the 2013 Leadership Class, where she was a member of the Steering Committee of the class project: the 2014 DAYL Charity Ball. In addition, she served on the steering committee for the DAYL Charity Ball in 2015. In addition, she is a Co-Chair of the DAYL Equal Access to Justice Committee, and she is a member of the inaugural committee for the DAYL and DWLA Women’s Networking Circle program.
But Vicky’s community involvement does not end with DAYL. She is an active member of the J.L. Turner Legal Association, Junior League of Dallas, and the Dallas Bar Association. Vicky also serves on the Mentorship Committee of the William ‘Mac’ Taylor American Inn of Court. And through it all, she still finds time to pursue her hobbies of traveling, writing, and fitness.
Vicky’s professionalism and excellence in her practice, dedication to her community, and passion for DAYL are just a few reasons why she is this month’s One to Watch.
