My Story

Nicole S. Mason is the founder and principal of Mason Legal Group, LLC, a law firm dedicated to comprehensive estate planning and to representing the needs of individuals known as the “sandwich generation” – individuals caring for their children and their parents.

The Firm’s practice is dedicated to effective planning including powers of attorney; wills and trusts; protecting what individuals and families have worked hard for through asset protection planning and offering our clients a peace of mind through probate and estate administration.  Nicole and her Firm serve clients in DC, Maryland and Virginia.  The Firm’s office is located in downtown Silver Spring, MD.

Nicole has more than 10 years of experience in estate planning and estate administration.  She is passionate about this area of practice because of her own personal experience.  Nicole lost both her mom and grandmother in the same month, 17 days apart to be exact, while 8 months pregnant.  Nicole was an only child and only grandchild.  Thus, it was her sole responsibility to administer both her mom’s and grandmother’s estates, at the same time.  One estate was administered in Washington, DC, and the other estate in Maryland.  She became her first client, understanding the importance of planning in advance, protecting her loved ones’ assets and having peace of mind to properly and effectively navigate the probate process.

Nicole brings this personal experience to her practice.  She understands and knows first-hand the heaviness of grief and the difference it makes having someone you can trust handling such a sensitive and intimate matter.  Estate planning can be a difficult conversation to have with your family, but it is a very necessary conversation that families must have.  This is where Nicole’s differentiating factor adds tremendous value to the process.  She is a licensed and ordained minister.  She has had the honor and privilege of supporting grieving families during their bereavement, as well as helping them readjust their lives spiritually and emotionally, without the presence of their loved ones.  This is more than a business to Nicole; this is a calling to help families properly prepare and show up and support when it is needed the most.

Nicole is a graduate of Howard University, having earned an undergraduate degree in Sociology.  She earned her Juris Doctor degree from the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law.  Additionally, she earned a Master of Law from the George Washington University School of Law.  Nicole also has a Master of Divinity from Howard University School of Divinity.

She is married to Sean Paul Mason, Founder and CEO of Capital Gaming Studios and the HBCU Esports League.  They live in Washington, DC, and are excited about their growing family: 3 sons, 2 daughters and their first grandchild.
