One of the best phone calls I ever made was to the office of Nick Rice. I was in a legal nightmare at the time with contempt issues that needed to filed against my ex-husband. I had come to a dead end with another attorney, and was referred by a friend to Nick. After my first visit with Nick, I knew immediately that I had finally found an attorney who was willing to attack the problem head on. Additionally, Nick uncovered additional issues that were also not in compliance with the divorce decree. No one else I had hired to that point had discovered these additional problems that were extremely important. Nick's knowledge of the law and his dedication to his clients is extraordinary! He is clever, intelligent, steadfast, well-spoken and confident. Nick and his staff developed excellent strategies to approach the numerous issues that we were faced with, and additionally, they were never intimidated by opposing counsel and quickly picked up on many inaccuracies that were presented by opposing counsel. Nick was always quick to return emails and phone calls, and he always explained everything so that I always knew exactly what was going on and what options we had. He always made sure I thoroughly understood what the pros and cons would be to any actions that we would take. When we went to court, Nick and his staff were beyond amazing in how well they were prepared. Nick did an outstanding job in the courtroom, and he gave me peace of mind throughout the entire process. I have nothing but high praise for Nick and his staff. I am extremely grateful for all he did for me.
My divorce was so unusual that if I provide details my privacy will be violated, however I am still compelled to write a review because my lawyer provided excellent counsel throughout. He was totally objective and allowed me to diverge from the "normal or customary" lawyerly path. He well advised me of the consequences of my decisions. My choice of action ultimately worked well for me due to the unusually difficult emotional conclusion of my case.
My divorce case began in November 2010. I had a very problematic wife who consistently delayed the divorce process with her antics. Since November 2010, I went through the process of several different consultations and hiring and firing 3 attorneys from, Miles Mason, Cordell & Cordell, and Cordts Law Firm. During my time as their client I saw zero results come from them. Whenever my wife would cause an issue they would give in to her. I was emotionally and physically strained every time I had to pay a bill to a lawyer that wasn’t making things happen. Then I met with Mr. Nick Rice. After discussing my case, with confidence he accepted my case and I hired him. After 13 months of dealing with the emotional, financial and overall stress that is attached to a divorce, Mr. Nick Rice was able to completely get all of the issues settled in less than 4 months with me coming out better than I had expected financially and with a parenting plan that was best for my children.
Rice, Amundsen & Caperton is by far the most professional law firm I have dealt with. Mr. Nick Rice and his team were supportive and never failed to return my calls, explain exactly what was going on, and give me the support I needed. There are lawyers and then there are LAWYERS. You can’t guarantee anything but with Mr. Nick Rice as my LAWYER I was able to feel comfortable about how my case was being handled. I felt that he was fighting for me and my children as if it was his neck on the line.
I am writing this in hopes that someone in my situation will have a lead to the right lawyer, instead of having to spend more money than necessary and going through several.
When it comes to a Family law issue, there are few, if any, I would trust more with my case. I know if Nick, and his staff, is on the case I am going to get top notch representation and results. He knows the law, he knows how to handle other attorneys and judges and he knows how to get results. I would defintiely recommend him to others and would feel safe to say that they, too, would have a great experience.
Nick was very helpful during a very difficult time in my life. I appreciated he and his staff keeping me informed during the entire process.
A pleasure to deal with. I would not want him to be going against him in any legal matter...
After having a very bad experience with my initial attorney, I retained George Rice to complete my divorce. Things went very smoothly. He undid the damage caused by the first attorney. I was pleased with my outcome.
Nick Rice represented me in a 10 year divorce case that included 6 opposing attorneys, GAL, 2 special Masters, and TN Court of Appeals. His integrity, preparation, and support made the best of a very sad situation. Highly competent, Intelligent and tenacious.
