  1. My ex husband and I agree we made a bad choice on this attorney

    • I do not recommend Amy Nichols.
    • I hired Amy 1-3 years ago.
    • Amy handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Slow to return phone calls, and email communication was often made with an assistant.
    My ex-husband and I split the bill, a grand total of $14,539.36.
    That bill most definitely ran up quickly with travel expenses, such as airfare, parking and meals, which is expected, but I thought her spending was on the high end, for example, we paid for her $42.43 dinner, $27.25 lunch and a upgrade on her rental car. Other meals were within reason.
    She served as an amicus on my son's case.
    When I later had serious concerns over my son's welfare, I contacted her again, at the direction of two attorneys, since she was assigned to be the continuing tie-breaker in our case.
    She also said that because of her location differing from ours, we'd have to change venue to change custody.
    This was not true.
    At the direction of my attorney, and at an additional expense (paid to my attorney instead of Amy), the judge not only signed a Temporary Restraining Order, but he also enforced it with extraordinary circumstances.
    We ended up getting it all handled in El Paso, with no help from Amy, who is now my son's FORMER amicus.
    I will never use her again, nor will I ever recommend her.

  2. There should be a lesser selection than poor for this attorney.

    • Amy handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I "worked" with her for a little over a month. She never returned my calls, overcharges for doimg absolutely nothing, and didn't do anything I asked of her. Terrible attorney. I would have done better keeping my money and representing myself.

  3. BAD, not professional

    • I do not recommend Amy Nichols.
    • I hired Amy 1-3 years ago.
    • Amy handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    She did not do anything on my case. She never read the documents I gave her and was not ready for the hearing. After the hearing, she went to talk to my still husband ignoring me. very expensive for a bad service.
