    Nancy Bickford Provided Me With Outstanding Legal Representation In My Complicated Divorce

    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.

    Happy client

    Nancy was referred to me by a friend who had hired Nancy for her divorce years ago.  Before going for my consultation, I had consulted with a few other attorneys and never felt the right chemistry with any of them.  From the moment I stepped into Nancy’s office I was greeted by friendly staff who immediately made me feel welcomed and at ease during a really stressful time.  Nancy was warm and inviting and made me feel very comfortable from the start.   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.  I highly recommend Nancy Bickford as a family law attorney.

    Horrified Former Client

    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!!!!

    Nancy June Bickford’s response: “We, at the Law Offices of Nancy Bickford, are committed to protecting our clients’ interests and providing them with the highest quality legal services in a timely, efficient and cost-effective manner. We care about each and every one of our clients and strive to provide them with the best legal representation possible in a positive manner. We have an extremely high client satisfaction rate. It is very rare that any of our clients are unsatisfied with our work or complain about their billing. On the rare occasion that a client ever has a complaint, or questions a bill, we immediately review the bill, investigate the claim and report back to the client. This "anonymous" review by one of our former clients is a rare and unfortunate exception to our high client satisfaction rate. Our office stands by the work that was done on this case. Without going into details, the information in this review is simply not factual and we dispute the information in the post. The former client was aware of and had requested the work that was performed on the case. We made several attempts to work out the fee dispute with this former client and ended up mediating the fee dispute. Our former client had an opportunity to express her dissatisfaction and complaints and present evidence regarding her claims about the bill during the fee dispute mediation. The mediator found in favor of our firm and against the former client in the fee dispute mediation. We find it very unfortunate that this former client is so unhappy about losing the fee dispute mediation. We regret that our former client feels this way because we did try very hard to help this client. We worked hard on the case and made many attempts to resolve the fee dispute prior to mediation. We believe that this former client is now unfairly trying to cause harm to our firm with this negative review. Rest assure, our firm is dedicated to addressing our clients divorce and separation needs in a positive, collaborative manner that resolves conflict, avoids court intervention whenever possible, and helps families restructure their relationships to benefit all members during and after the divorce.”

    Excellent & Professional Family Lawyer

    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.
