Professional experience

Immediately upon receiving her law degree, Nicrosi joined the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. under the Attorney General's Honor Program. She served for a number of years as a trial attorney in the Southern Criminal Enforcement Section of the Tax Division, prosecuting white collar criminal cases with special focus on tax fraud and other financially related crimes. In 1995, Nicrosi transferred to the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Alabama, though she continued to specialize in white collar cases such as fraud and public corruption. For four years, starting in 1997, Nicrosi served as chief of the criminal division within the United States Attorney's Office, supervising the criminal attorneys and managing all the criminal litigation for her judicial district. From 2006 until 2009, she has worked as an attorney for Mobile-based private practice law firm of Jones Walker.
