Nichole Compton, a native of Louisville, Kentucky, is the eldest of 8 children born to Bonnie and Charles Taylor. Her humble beginnings are the cornerstone for her positive attitude and her position as a pillar in her community.
Nichole graduated in the top percentile of her class in high school, despite becoming pregnant at the age of 15 and a mother at 16. She went on to get a Bachelor of Science, her Master of Business Administration focusing on Entrepreneurship and her Juris Doctorate degree. Immediately after law school, Nichole began practicing and is the managing attorney and owner of Compton Law Office as well as a certified mediator.
Nichole excels at being a loving mother to her son Rico, a new grandmother to her grandson "Ace", a sister, auntie, mentor and true friend to many. She always finds time to connect with her community, whether it is giving pro bono legal and mediation services, mentoring high school or college students, serving on various boards or volunteering. For years, Nichole also served as a court appointed attorney each week representing parents accused of child abuse or neglect in the Jefferson County Family Court system. Her volunteerism has earned her community recognition and awards over the years such as the Jefferson County Public Schools "Champions for Children" awards, which she received more than once.
Not only is she a working woman, entrepreneur and the former president of the Louisville Black Lawyers Association, she recently ran for Jefferson District Court Judge, a countywide position. After her strong campaign run as the youngest judicial candidate on the ballot, she decided to focus more on her passion of speaking, motivating and forming a nonprofit for teens. She has recently published two books simultaneously and is working on her next two. She refuses to slow down in the least until she has changed the world—and she is well on her way to her goal!
Nichole is known for her enthusiasm, smile, positive energy and honesty, and she openly speaks of her life stories and lessons learned. She enjoys educating and encouraging others. You never forget a speech she presents.
