I highly recommend Ms. Hinderaker to any client. She is first in mind, when I make a referral to an individual or family. She is skilled, knowledgeable and experienced in the area of family law. Clients who hire Ms. Hinderaker are always satisfied. She projects dedication and commitment.
I have worked with dozens of attorneys in my career so I have a pretty good idea of what a great attorney is like. When I started my divorce Nicole was recommended to me by another attorney specializing in contract law. My spouse had left the state, was hiding and refusing to accept service. Once she got an attorney the attorney also helped her avoid being served the divorce papers.
Nicole's wisdom, experience and creativity got me through that very difficult time period. She knew how to deal with the uncooperative attorney and was able to finally get the papers served. She was very understanding of my frustrations and concerns and gave me great perspective on how to deal with it.
Nicole has a very high level knowledge of family law in Arizona and she was able to provide invaluable advice on what to expect and what the law requires and allows. As we started negotiating a settlement Nicole was very understanding and supportive. Nicole also protected me from myself and several times during the settlement discussions made me think about what I was doing and if I really understood what I was offering. I appreciated her longer term perspective and concerns when I was getting caught up in the immediate emotion of the divorce.
As the divorce progressed the opposing attorney was extremely uncooperative and uncommunicative. I was obviously frustrated and Nicole was able to deal with the situation and assure me things would work out.
As we got towards the end Nicole knew exactly when to move to set a court date. It was amazing how the negotiations suddenly accelerated and then concluded. Nicole could sense when it was appropriate to make that move. Nicole was very understanding and patient with me. There were times it seemed that things weren't moving and Nicole was able to counsel and calm me which really helped me cope.
Nicole is very concerned about providing great value for the client. Over the 8 months working with Nicole there were several times when she explained costs and how I might minimize my expense. She was always concerned about providing the best value to me. Nicole was very fair with me and she provided great value. She always was extremely productive and I never had any issues or concerns with her billing.
As it looked like we might have to go to court I was extremely comfortable to have Nicole represent me in a hearing or trial. Nicole has a very professional demeanor, is respected by other attorneys and knows when to be tough. That gave me great confidence in negotiations because I knew Nicole would be representing me if it went before a Judge.
I highly recommend Nicole in any family law situation and would not hesitate to seek her help or advice in the future.
Nicci is an incredible attorney. I'm going through a messy parenting time/child support case and my dishonest ex happened to get a high conflict attorney who is not very nice and difficult to work with. Nicci has been very level headed, calm, and collected during these intense times. She is empathetic and really listens to me and understands my concerns. She is honest with me, always, and I'm kept 100% informed. Nicci is able to keep things in perspective and truly focuses on what is best for the kids. She will hold me accountable if I start to get a little unreasonable, and I can't tell you how valuable that is. We are able to discuss situations, problem-solve, and the end result is a perfect balance of law and facts of the case. I have had experience with many family attorneys because of my job and none of them even compare. I have very high standards when it comes to my kids, and high expectations as well, and I can honestly say I have not been disappointed even one time through my case.
Ms. Hinderaker is a very knowledgeable and experienced attorney. I went to see her regarding a child custody case. She explained my options and gave me good advice as to the next step I should take. Nicky made quite a few calls that day, and the next, faithfully informing me of the progress. On the third day, i had my little boy back! I will always be grateful and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for the best!
