    Hired attorney

    My experience with Nancy was a very good one, particularly under the circumstances of my divorce. I had hired an attorney prior to Nancy who would sometimes respond with one word when I would expect a little more information; That attorney did not really understand or "get" the nuances of my particular situation. Nancy got it right away. I hired her over the phone. She has a commanding tone of voice, yet pleasant and business like. The timbre and cadence of an attorney's voice is important to me. Any advantage, right? I feel satisfied with the outcome of my situation. I had some complicated waters to get through.
    Nancy, her assistant Jordana, and staff were all
    easy to work with, professional, and too the point.
    Nancy is a busy attorney. This not surprising to me given her strength of character and keen understanding of Family Law. As such, I would often confer with Jordana if I had a questions. Jordana is a stellar attorney in her own right. I had full confidence in Jordana. Having said that, if I wanted to speak with Nancy she made time for me. Everytime. Absolutely.
    Plus, as others have said, Nancy and her staff are compassionate and eager to help. I cannot recommend Nancy Baskin and her team enough.

    Hired attorney

    Nancy helped me through a contentious, if "uncontested" divorce. She provided me good guidance for navigating both legal and interpersonal matters with my ex, negotiated well on my behalf, and got me through to a fair settlement. Given how stressful the divorce was for me, she also managed to be an empathic ear, and a great support, for which I am also grateful.

    Hired attorney

    Nancy was very helpful while I was considering her as an attorney. However, after I wrote the check for the retainer, I could never get her on the phone. When I did finally get her she made me feel like I was inconveniencing her. I had to repeat facts and correct her. I finally went to another attorney.

    Nancy is sharp and experienced--to be sure, She is a good listener and thoughtful--not as easy to come by as one would hope. I interviewed a lot of attorneys before asking Nancy to represent me. I chose her because in addition to being an excellent attorney, she was the only one I felt i could trust to speak in my name, in a manner which I trusted and that reflected who I am and what I care about. And, if that were not enough, I experienced Nancy as a caring and kind person at a very difficult time in my life. The wisdom of her legal advice is still unfolding and I am grateful for her guidance.

    Nancy was originally referred to me as "tough but compassionate," which proved to be a considerable understatement. She clearly has a thorough understanding of the law as well as an extensive body of practical experience; my case changed directions several times, and at every step she was able to clearly explain my options as well as make practical recommendations. She put together an agreement that precisely reflected my wishes, and which ultimately became final. And while my situation did not become overly adversarial, it was plainly clear from her manner and competence that anyone who tried to get away with anything in a fight with her would end up in sad shape indeed.

    Still - and perhaps even more importantly, to me - she was indeed a compassionate and knowledgeable presence throughout what was certainly the darkest period in my life. She (and everyone in her office, occasionally even including her awesome and highly empathetic dog) were unfailingly kind and helpful, and helped me to make good decisions while keeping things in perspective. She also struck a good balance between being sympathetic and making sure I made the right decisions for myself, even when I couldn't quite recognize them on my own - a pearl beyond price.

    At any rate, Nancy and her team are the real deal - experts who care about the means as well as the ends. I wouldn't care to have gone through this experience without her help, and would very strongly recommend her to anyone, any time.

    Nancy got me through the most difficult time in my life with skill and compassion. She quickly grasped and skillfully negotiated both complex financial issues in my business and the difficult custody issues I was facing. She outmaneuvered an extremely aggressive lawyer on the other side. She did it all efficiently and treated me with kindness and dignity. Her advice to me was practical and I especially appreciated how she kept me from going down roads that would have wasted time and money for me. I couldn't have been more pleased with her representation and the result. I felt very lucky I had her in my corner as I went through this experience.

    Nancy Baskin treated me like I was wasting her time. She mishandled my case so badly that now, some time later I am dearly paying the price. Things she should have caught were not, language that should have been removed was not, options that I had were never brought to light. She treated me like a second class citizen regardless of the fact that I paid her 5 figures to watch my back. Do yourself a favor and find another attorney.

  • Absoltuely no follow through; breaks promises, POOR SERVICE

    Nancy made a good first imprssion and appeared competant. She reviewed my first draft by husband's lawyer quickly and had good suggestions. HOWEVER, when it came to revising the document on several simple points I waited OVER TWO MONTHS with absolutely no progress. Furthermore, during this time she continueally lied to me; each week emailing that she was close to final draft, and would will get it to me later this week. So many promises for "a few days". ALL Bullshit; I have yet to see anything produced from this office except lies.

    Nancy helped me through a very difficult and painful divorce. She was able to head off each of the five attorneys my EX kept hiring. None of them could beat Nancy at her game. Nancy was able get me a very good settlement and helped me get my confidence back and move on with my life. That was 6+ years ago and things couldn't be better!

    Not only is Attorney Baskin professional, but she is compassionate to her clients and displays that by always looking out for their best interests and in her thoroughness. You can rely on her to effectively manage the negotiations and trust her implicitly...which means you don't have to worry as much. She has a unique capability of being strongly convincing in an inviting/appealing manner which means that people (e.g. judges, opposing counsel & client) listen to her when she speaks. She is effective and efficient at her job and is more than pleasant to talk with her, as well as her staff. I am truly fortunate to have had Nancy represent me. I can positively recommend her without hesitation.
