So unfortunately I didn't call her first. After paying a less than competent lawyer almost the same for making my situation worse and then the same lawyer referred me to another "criminal lawyer" who had a misconduct judgement against him. Needless to say my first lawyer posed and presented herself as a criminal lawyer- she was not and I am sure she realized it because brought in the other worse lawyer. So after firing them both, my trust was very shaken. I choose Nicole for her experience with the DA and in that specialty of criminal case. She and her team did not disappoint! They meet with me and my family and gave us hope back. What should have been dismissed from the beginning had me ended up charged. Nicole got charges reduced from felony to misdemeanor. That alone was worth it. Her fee was very reasonable for all her work. Considering what I got from first atty, Nicole gave so much more in her service. So she earned my trust, showed myself and family compassion, and continued to help me after sentencing. Thank you Nicole and team, you all have restored my faith that lawyers can care, be knowledgeable, and fight for their clients.

Nicole was my defense attorney in a very public criminal case, and was a source of calm compassion throughout a very stressful process. She was the voice of reason and my family and I always knew that she had our best interests at heart. Through no fault of her own I went to prison, and she continued to offer counsel to me and my family and to work on my behalf, resulting in my being freed on probation after six months. It would have been easy for her to have considered the case closed, and my family had at one point decided to not pursue a probation filing, but Nicole continued to work for me and I am out today because of her efforts. In short, she is a great ally to have in your corner and will work very hard to achieve the best outcome no matter the situation. I hope to never have need for her services again, but if I do she'll be the first person I call.

Nicole was able to avoid my going to trial. However, even if I had to go, I had confidence in her ability to get a favorable verdict. She was prompt in returning phone calls and emails. I am highly satisfied in her quality of work.

Nicole is committed in providing the highest quality of legal representation I have ever seen , she is what you call a Guardian. I had my back against the wall, going against all the odds, before I came across Nicole I was with a previous lawyer who did not do nothing and took all my money I got railroaded twice by the judge because my ex would call the DA and make false allegations. The lousy lawyer that I had did not protect me. So we decided to part ways and I found Nicole, the first time the she walk into the courtroom I sat back and analyzed how she interacted with the prosecutor's and I was intrigued on how she carries herself with such respect and enthusiasm , she is well well respected I was so excited she actually sat down with the prosecutor and broke everything down! In my mind I was like this attorney really cares! I was amazed she fought tooth and nail finally got my case dismissed! I will refer her to everybody, and anybody who is in need of a good lawyer. Nicole is highly respected and she is the one that you need on your corner to fight for you! trust me I am living proof!
She was extremely quick with her answer and although she couldn't personally help with my situation she was helpful and resourceful.

Nicole was hired for writ case, she is evidence that diligence pays off. She is very persistence but careful. Her office staff is professional and thorough. My calls were returned in a timely manner and none of my questions went unanswered. Hopefully, I will not have to use her again. But, I would most definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

Nicole's level of professionalism and true passion for helping her clients is unsurpassed. After being given the news that our case was going to be very hard to get re-opened and dismissed, Nicole was able to get it done in a matter of a few weeks. I would not use anyone else in the city!

I hired Nicole for my criminal defense case. The case could have potentially gone in an unfavorable direction. Nicole got the ball rolling, avoided indictment, held my case for the Grand Jury, was able to talk with the prosecution to explain my situation, and closed the case with a dismissal! I believe I paid a fair price for the amount of time & involvement with my case. It is very obvious to me, Nicole is a highly respected lawyer in the Harris County Criminal Court system. I highly recommend hiring Nicole.

I found myself in the unfortunate position of being arrested and accused of DWI in 2013. Following my first meeting with Ms Deborde, I was left with no doubt regarding both her subject matter expertise and drive to best represent the client. Although the court system ran at a snails pace, the support, guidance and time afforded to me by Ms Deborde throughout the process certainly helped lessen the anxiety and impact on my life. When my case finaly came to trial, I was amazed as to how much respect one person can command in the court room and how her eloquent approach and challenge to the prosecution quickly drove a very favorable outcome resulting in dismissal. Although I would never want to subject to a similar set of circumstances, if I was, I would have no hesitation in contacting Ms Deborde again.
