    Heartfelt Honesty

    My attorney was kind and professional. She always had my best interest at heart. I found that at times that I would have to make the initiative to follow up with our scheduled meetings and phone calls otherwise they may not have occurred. I always received an apology but it was difficult to deal with while going through a divorce

    Couldn't have asked for anyone better!

    Nicole Chafetz is definitely that best at her job. She's currently working on my dependency case and thanks to her help and support I now have unsupervised visit with my children. When I first lost my kids to CPS I was very discouraged and felt like it was the end of the world but once I talked with Nicole she gave me hope. She didn't tell me what I wanted to hear just simply the facts. She told me that this wasn't going to be an easy case to win but if I help her by doing my part she'll help me and she's been true to her word this far. She's professional while sincere and caring at the same time. I would highly recommend her to anyone thanks Nicole B Chafetz your the best.

    Peer

    Nicki has always been great to work with. She is very knowledgeable about the law and has provided me excellent advice in a pinch. I would routinely consult her on issues regarding procedure and substantive law. She has particular expertise in matters of dependency from many years of experience. I was very fortunate to have her as a resource during my practice in that area.

    Client in a child custody case

    Ms Chafetz guided me through a very difficult custody case. She explained the proceeding, kept me informed and provided support at every turn. She was prompt in keeping me up to date and was able to review with me as to what would happen next. My nieces were able to come home with me to Connecticut. Thank you Nicki

    She's got your back!

    I was in need of some professional advice and Nicole went to bat for me. She kept me advised on what I needed to do and went the extra mile to help me out. Her staff was also helpful in keeping me in the loop and getting information back to Nicole for me. I hope I won't need her services again, but should I need them, I would go back to her in a heartbeat!

    Already won twice, going for 3.

    There is a person in my past life that has brought several frivolous lawsuits against me. Nikky, has won all the cases for me so far. I would recommend her.

    Listened and heard

    Having a non-parental third party custody case with both original petitioners separating, most lawyers I talked to gave me the run around. They were interested in the case if I wanted to pay them for their time to research it, which obviously wasn't my focus and I didn't have time for. Luckily we found Nicki just in time!

    We picked Nicole Chafetz off AVVO because of her experience on such cases. After reading a bio that says she thrives on putting biological families back together I was a little concerned. This is anything but biological. I expressed my concerns to Nicki and she was polite and professional as she explained that she is here to put families of all different dimensions together. It put my mind at ease and made it easier for us to work together because I knew that she had my best interest at heart, as well as, my daughters. Up to this point I haven't had a lawyer and found that I felt out of control and this made me uncomfortable; however, being able to explain my feelings to someone who listened and heard what I was saying made all the difference. Nicki took notice of the way I felt and went out of her way to make sure I had and knew everything that I needed to in order to feel included.

    We've just won our first step and I look forward to continuing to work with Nicki for our permenant order!

    Nicole B Chafetz’s response: “I know how I lost that one star on this client and it makes me sad. She talked to me about it in the middle of the case. Sometimes I work hard on the legal part of a case but don't do enough of the "counseling" part. This client, despite having won and won big (being allowed to move out of state with her 3rd party custodian daughter, even though all of the biological ties were on the other side) she felt that I could have done more hand-holding and more communicating about my case strategy. I DO learn however! And I will keep this in mind for all future clients. It's not all about the law and winning, some of it is about bringing ease to the client's mind when that is warranted, especially when they tell you they want to be hands on. LATEST: Case over. Client retains primary custody! Yay team!”

    Nicole's a go getter!

    Fighting for grandmothers rights and custody was only possible because of Nicole. I had a few moments where I was starting to doubt her, but she proved me wrong. She's tough and gets done what needs to be done. Her assistant Lew is also a great asset to her team.

    Non Parental Custody

    We were in an emergency situation and Nicole was very quick to respond to us. She was quick to put us at ease and make us feel comfortable. She was very knowledgeable in a Third Party Custody situation and had us in court in two days. It is an on going battle, but now we feel the system works and have all the faith in Nicole to see us to the end. If you need a lawyer that knows her stuff and who will fight with all she has for you, then you need to call Nicole.
