Nikki R. Marcotte



Nikki Marcotte is an associate who specializes in complex commercial litigation, employment litigation, and government investigations. She has represented clients in a wide-range of issues including, but not limited to, product liability defense, employment discrimination and wrongful termination defense, white collar defense and government investigations, breach of contract issues, business torts, toxic torts, and mortgage disputes. Nikki is no stranger to the litigation process as she has extensive experience at the initial pleadings phase, in all aspects of discovery and e-discovery, successfully drafting and arguing dispositive motions, and throughout the appeals process.

Before joining Tabet DiVito & Rothstein, Nikki served as a judicial clerk on the Kansas Supreme Court for the Honorable Melissa T. Standridge. She also served then-Judge Standridge on the Kansas Court of Appeals prior to that. Right out of law school, Nikki was a general litigation associate at a large firm in Kansas City, Missouri for two years. There, she largely focused her practice on white collar criminal defense work, government investigations and compliance, employment defense, and other various complex commercial litigation matters.

Nikki is also passionate about pro bono work and devotes much of her pro bono practice to postconviction and civil rights matters. This passion stems from her time in law school where she served as Student Director for the Paul E. Wilson Project for Innocence and Postconviction Remedies and at her previous firm where she worked with the Midwest Innocence Project on multiple cases involving wrongfully convicted individuals.
