Marble Surface


Nikeisha is a rare talent.  As head of a busy patent litigation group at Russ, August & Kabat, I had the pleasure of working with Nikeisha throughout her paralegal career, including a dozen trials in federal court. Despite coming from great firms like Irell, Knobbe, and Latham & Watkins, Nikeisha is hands down the best paralegal my team has ever worked with.  She is the master of her domain in trial.  Can’t overestimate the confidence she instills.  It’s a special thing being in court knowing that Nikeisha had thought through EVERYTHING, 3 steps ahead and down to the tiniest detail.  She enables a seamless jury presentation and was key to multiple jury wins.

Nikeisha has been my mentor at Russ, August & Kabat for over two years. I joined the firm without any patent background. She trained me on all aspects of case management—from inception to trial, and since then I have first-chaired two patent trials. She implemented various protocols and guidebooks that are still used today by myself and many litigation support staff. Nikeisha is highly qualified, perceptive, and sympathetic to the demands of the paralegal profession. She continues to mentor me and provides indispensable knowledge in paralegal best practices.
