Nancy Nowlis has represented me in two family law matters: a divorce after 14 years of marriage (resolved in mediation) and later a modification of a child visitation agreement (taken to trial). From my initial consultation to the conclusion of the second matter, I found Nancy to be extremely professional, unusually compassionate, extraordinarily competent and efficient at all times. At every stage, Nancy thoroughly educated me on what to expect, the legalities of the situation and my options. Since Nancy practices ONLY family law, she is intimately familiar with all of the statutes and nuisances of this area of law. She is also familiar with the area’s judges and how they tend to rule on matters. She provided me guidance in decision making and confidence that she would fight for my decision. If she felt my decision was not in my best interest, she clearly explained why and what the repercussions might be. All decisions were ultimately my call. Unlike other attorneys that I have encountered, Nancy never delayed, bullied or used scare tactics to secure or retain me as her client. Additionally, Nancy was truly an advocate for my child throughout the process – always advising what was in my daughter’s best interests, even if I was upset and wanted a different outcome. Nancy and her assistant Loretta have consistently been incredibly prompt in returning phone calls and providing me copies of legal documents. In most cases, a phone call was returned within hours and paperwork was provided in that day’s outgoing mail (even if I was not waiting for it). I was not a “special client” who somehow received “special treatment” due to my large bank account or a power position I held in society. I was a “regular” client who was treated with the utmost respect and importance simply because that is how Nancy treats her clients. I have recommended Nancy to several co-workers who have spoken highly of Nancy and received equally exemplary results in their legal issues. It has been over four years since my divorce and I am still entirely content with the mediated agreement Nancy hammered out for me. I am also very pleased with the recent modification trial results. As always, Nancy had thoroughly prepared for the trial and was ready for each issue as it was encountered. I would recommend Nancy Nowlis without hesitation to anyone in need of an excellent family law attorney.

I have had the opportunity to work with Nancy on two different occasions and found her easy to work with and I was very comfortable talking to her. As a lawyer, she was efficient, timely and compassionate which made my overall experience less stressful. I truly appreciate her sensitive approach in handling situations and would definitely use her in the future.
