In June, we lost a dear alumna of the University’s School of Law in the collapse of the Champlain Towers in Surfside, Florida. Nicky earned her J.D. from the University of Miami. She is remembered for her strong work ethic, humor, and ability to put everyone around her at ease, leaving a profound loss for all who knew her.
Please consider making a gift today to the Nicole "Nicky" Langesfeld, J.D. '19 Memorial Law Scholarship to honor her meaningful connection to the University of Miami.
Nicky was Reed Smith’s first summer associate in the Miami office in 2018, and she joined the firm the following year as an associate in the firm’s Insurance Recovery Group. Her practice focused on litigating and settling insurance coverage disputes on behalf of U.S. policyholders. As a bilingual lawyer with Argentinian roots, Nicky also worked on international litigation matters.
Nicky earned her J.D. from the University of Miami, where she was a member of the University’s Business Law Review, and she received two undergraduate degrees from the University of Florida. Nicky, 26, is survived by her father, Pablo, mother, Andrea, and brother, Martin. Nicky’s husband, Luis Sadovnic, also lost his life in the tower collapse. They met while studying at the University of Florida in Gainesville and married in January 2021.
Donate to the Nicole "Nicky" Langesfeld, J.D. '19 Memorial Law Scholarship to celebrate and honor Nicky’s life and memory. With your help, the scholarship will be able to award its first recipient by the fall of 2022.
