Nicholette Wilkerson joined Tekell & Atkins, L.L.P. after graduating from Baylor University School of Law in 2016. "From the moment I entered the doors of Tekell & Atkins, L.L.P., I knew I wanted to be a part of this team. Here, I have become a member of a legal family that not only shares my passion for serving this community, but also continues to diligently and patiently mentor me to be an advocate and voice for my peers."

Nicholette is an East Texas native who came to Waco with an appreciation and love for closely-knit communities and the relationships nurtured therein. She graduated cum laude from Baylor University in 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in both Spanish and English. While at Baylor, Nicholette was a member of the Dean's List and was twice chosen by faculty to present at Baylor's yearly Scholar's Week program. Miss Wilkerson was also one of two recipients of a faculty-elected scholarship which enabled her to study abroad in Spain for a summer. Nicholette earned her Juris Doctor from Baylor University School of Law in 2016. There, she was a member of the Dean's List, a volunteer at the Waco Veteran's Assistance Clinic, and a competitor in the American Bar Association's Client Counseling Competition. She also received the Peeler Williams Jr. Client Counseling Award and was a member of the Baylor Barrister Society.

When not working, Miss Wilkerson enjoys being active, attending country music concerts, and cheering on the Baylor Bears and Dallas Cowboys. Nicholette is excited to bring the practice of family law and her fluency in Spanish to Tekell & Atkins, L.L.P. to advance the robust civil and probate practice maintained by the firm.
