I had tried for years to obtain a restraining order against my ex-husband. The Law Office of Nicole Anderson were professional, empathetic and aggressive in representing me. I highly recommend Attorney Anderson and her staff for all your family law issues.
I was going through a nasty divorce and custody battle. At first she will act like she will fight for you but make comments to you such as "Well your the one who married him". I was shock I'm paying her to be rude. I was told not to ask for any child support becausei made more than my ex. That i may have to pay him support for his every other weekend visit. I got left with all thebills and he got our used car that i paid cash for. Then
the following visit he was able to buy a new vehicle. She
ran late to court hearings. Both her and the opposing
parties attorney wrote my ex an I a horrible agreement
that she insisted that i sign. Worst thing I could to do.
Because later my ex was trying to get me for contempt.
I rarely spoke to her I spoke to her assistant Jessica that
was pretty on top of it. But then Jessica was no longer
working there and a new person took her place. On top of that Nicole was going through her own divorce. By this time I really had no contact with Nicole but the assistant that didn't have any knowledge and was getting charged every time I would call to ask her a question she couldn't answer or better yet lie. I had to call the family court daily to find out if my attorney put in a request for the mediation papers. Every time I call the law office and talk to the assistant she would lie and yell me that they made a request for it but according to family court they hadn't received anything. It was a joke I was highly upset and decided to get another attorney luckily I did get the difference of what I paid. I was seriously upset what a waste of money.
I was referred to Nicole by a friend. Things happened quickly and I needed an attorney ASAP. I talked to a few other attorneys before agreeing to work with Ms. Anderson. I read the her reviews and I was hesitant based on the poor recommendations, but when you are in the middle of custody issues and your life is momentarily upside down, you just overlook some things. I thought "well, nobody is perfect. I will give her the benefit of the doubt." This was the worst decision I could have made. Upon my initial meeting with Ms. Anderson, I started talking to another woman in the waiting room. I asked if she liked working with Nicole, and was surprised that she told me to look somewhere else. Again, I was in desperate need of counsel, and I just wanted to get things over with. Nicole spent 20 minutes with me, said we would should be able to get what I was asking for, and that she would see me in court. Problem was, she was 2 hours late for our initial court date. Yes, we were able to get the temporary order I was asking for, so I kept her as my legal counsel. The next court date, she didn't even show up. I had to beg the judge to let me speak without my attorney present so that we could reschedule. Then the most important court date came a month later, and again Ms. Anderson was a no show!! I couldn't believe it. I was left crying in the hallway. I had just talked with her a week ago to make sure everything was in order for this day, and she left me high and dry. No call, nothing. I was paying for representation and on two occasions she failed to even show up. Every single time, I was told that she was in juvenile court, and couldn't make it to my court appearance. I am sorry, but I paid the same retainer as everyone else, and I am pretty sure she agreed to the calendar set by the judge every single time we set a court date. How was I any less important than other clients? After the last no show, I let go of Ms. Anderson and retained other counsel, who ended my case within two months with a full agreement. If her not showing up isn't bad enough, she called me by the wrong name on two occasions, and got my facts wrong while in front of the judge. I had to correct her telling her that she had my info confused with my ex. While we were all at the bench, she told me that "she knew how to do her f'ing job, and for me not to say anything." I couldn't believe my own attorney was swearing at me for telling her she had my data confused with the petitioner. Honestly, I would never recommend her. From the very beginning I should have known, I should have listened to the other reviews. Do not waste your money or your time, sitting in court waiting for someone who will be late or not show up at all. Completely unprofessional.
You will spend most of your time and money waiting for this woman who is infamous for not showing up to court and not calling. I spent a large amount of money for her to go to court repeatedly when she could have filled out a simple form and saved me the time and money. Does not keep you informed and drags out cases. I got much better results when I hired someone else. This time I checked the reviews.
A custody attorney has to look at what actually happened to you, what happened to your children, get beyond your emotions, and decide the best way to obtain the best result in court. Nicole has excellent judgement, and works through the problems methodically to get the best result possible. Two years later, her advice is still right on in my case.
Nicole did just what she said she would do after our first meeting. She promised me I would have my daughter back and that's just what happen. She was a pit-bull in court and did not settle. I refer her to everyone in my military family.
I would not ever hire her as my lawyer...she claims that she has your best interest at heart...for this is untrue....
when an att asks for your comment....but asks not to leave spiteful comments...what does that tell you..
do your homework...before you hire her....
