Nicole Lynne Gray

Staff Author

Nicole Lynne Gray is a staff author at Quimbee. Nicole is whom many might consider “non-traditional;” she took a non-traditional path to law school, was a non-traditional student, and as a result has had a non-traditional legal practice. Nicole is a former electrical engineer who worked at a time for the Federal Aviation Administration receiving commendations and awards for installing the first airport digital surveillance radar in the U.S. southwest region in Lafayette, LA in 2004. While working as an engineer, Nicole decided she wanted to work with inventors and set out on a path to become a patent lawyer.

To continue earning a living while in law school, Nicole combined her natural abilities of compiling and conveying complex information with her experiences working as a tutor in undergrad and for various agencies to start her own tutoring agency where she tutored students in mainly math, science, and test preparation and managed up to 30 tutors. After graduating from law school, using the techniques she taught others, Nicole self-studied for the Texas bar exam and passed on the first attempt. She then moved to the Washington, DC area, first working for the US Patent Office as a patent examiner in the Education and Demonstration art unit dealing with electrical/electronic didactic inventions and then as a contract attorney providing patent litigation support for an AM200 law firm.

At the law firm, Nicole learned that her greatest practice strengths are research and writing and soon began teaching legal research and writing to first-year law students at UDC David A. Clarke School of Law in Washington, DC where she taught two academic years from 2013-2015. Nicole moved back to Texas and started a solo practice specializing in legal research and writing in administrative law areas including patent law, social security & disability, and unemployment law. She continued to teach first-year law students at the University of Houston Law Center for the 2015-2016 academic year and at the UNT Dallas College of Law for the Spring 2017 semester.

Prior to joining Quimbee, Nicole performed freelance legal research and writing and teaching academic and professional success at Lone Star College in Houston, Texas.
