Nancy Bickford is the first professional I have hired through an ad in the paper (a small ad in the Carmel Valley neighborhood paper), but I am very glad I did. Nancy is both an attorney and a CPA. My divorce was complicated and involved many non-routine issues related to the unusual nature of my assets and income as well as a complex separate property situation. Nancy’s hourly billing rate is very competitive with other attorneys, and her expertise and business acumen enabled her to represent me in an efficient manner, which resulted in a very reasonable overall fee despite my complicated case.
Nancy was also very patient with me. Obviously, I was very close to my case, and I had a lot of ideas as to how the case should be handled. Nancy explained to me on numerous occasions why my “good” ideas really were not that good. :- ) She did so with understanding of my emotional attachment to the case, and on a few occasions with good humor, but always with respect.
I have no complaints regarding Nancy’s representation of me, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a family law attorney.
She was totally unprepared for my hearing and made me look life a fool.
Nancy was referred to me by a friend who had hired Nancy for her divorce years ago. Â Before going for my consultation, I had consulted with a few other attorneys and never felt the right chemistry with any of them.Â From the moment I stepped into Nancyâ€™s office I was greeted by friendly staff who immediately made me feel welcomed and at ease during a really stressful time.Â Nancy was warm and inviting and made me feel very comfortable from the start.Â Â Throughout the course of my case, Nancy has continued to gain my confidence in her skills and I firmly believe that she cares about me and my needs. Â I highly recommend Nancy Bickford as a family law attorney.
Do not hire Nancy Bickford. I am a family law paralegal. I hired Nancy Bickford to represent me on a post judgment matter. Within 5 weeks she depleted my $5,000 retainer. I told Ms. Bickford she was fired the day of our hearing. She misrepresented her status as my attorney to the judge and got a fee award for $7,000 for future fees from my ex husband!!!! She did not refund this money to me. She then took 3 weeks to sign the substitution of attorney form and had the audacity to bill me another $3700!!!!!! When I refused to pay her for all her ficticious billing she sued me. BEWARE!!!!
I hired Nancy Bickford for my divorce. Nancy was very kind and helpful in making what could have been a very difficult and confusing situation into one that I felt in control of and confident in. She handled my case with the utmost professionalism. Her staff was kind and attentive. Should I ever need a family law attorney again (cross my fingers I don't), I would certainly look to Nancy for her guidance once again.
