Temple, TX Paralegal

Nichole Zapata is a paralegal in B&T’s Temple office. Nichole has over 17 years of experience as a paralegal and has worked on cases involving bankruptcy, criminal law, and family law.

Nichole enjoys working family cases because she feels it gives her the ability to help people through what is often the hardest time of their life. She has survived her own family law issues, and she finds it very rewarding to provide not only the professional knowledge she has acquired over almost two decades, but also the personal understanding only personal expertise can teach someone.

Nichole’s personal attention and understanding is enhanced even more when assisting the many military families B&T represents. Nichole was born in Texas, but due to her family’s military service, she has lived in many places all over the globe including Germany. She knows and appreciates the many sacrifices military families make.

Nichole has two children. Her son is a freshmen in college, and her daughter is currently a senior in high school. Nichole enjoys spending time with her family and watching football, particularly her favorite team. “Go Cowboys!”

The Blanchard & Thomas “Clients’ Bill of Rights”

We Want to Earn the Right to Be Your Attorneys From Now on,
Not Just for the Duration of Your Current Legal Issue.
  • We play to win. While we cannot guarantee outcomes in any case, we always do our best to see that our clients come out on top. We want our clients to know without question that their success matters to us personally.

  • We play hard, we play fast, and we stick to the game plan. We work with every client to develop a strategy most likely to bring about their success. We work hard to ensure the strategy gives our client every advantage possible and their very best chance at success. We then implement that strategy as quickly and efficiently as possible.

  • We build our relationships upon a foundation of total honesty. Absolute honesty allows the client and the attorney to develop trust that will be absolutely critical to success in and out of the courtroom.

  • We make a commitment to communication. We begin and end many of our days communicating with clients. Our clients can count on us to return phone calls and/or e-mails within 24 to 48 hours except in emergencies or during announced absences from the office. We want our clients to know what we know and vice-versa. We want to ensure they can make informed decisions from start to finish.

  • While the attorney client relationship may not always result in friendship, we believe it should always result in mutual respect. We zealously advocate on our clients’ behalf whether we agree with their choices or not. We do not judge our client’s choices; we simply attempt to help them learn from them, live with them, and overcome them.

  • We serve at the clients’ pleasure. If for any reason whatsoever the client decides he/she is better off with a different attorney or law firm, we will respectfully and professionally do whatever we can to get the new attorney or law firm up to speed and ready to handle the case. We vow to never object to a client’s request to seek alternative counsel, and we promise to return 100% of any unearned advance payments.
