Highest recommendation for Attorney Levy
We found ourselves in the middle of a legal process that we knew very little about. We had worked with another attorney for earlier stages of the process and we were not confident about how to approach the path forward… and then we hired Nicole Levy. Nicole immediately put us at ease. She was knowledgeable about the entire legal process and guided us forward all while taking our ideas into account, moving us in a direction that we were all comfortable and confident with. Nicole communicated with us frequently and clearly throughout all of the stages and made sure that we were adequately prepared. Our only regret is that we didn’t hire Nicole earlier in the process. She comes with our highest recommendation.

Phenomenal attorney
Nicole provided her skills and expertise to my case and guided me through a very difficult divorce. She was calm and level headed, yet no nonsense. I could not recommend a better person to hire.

Exceptional representation
Nicole was a super star and I can't imagine receiving better representation. Throughout the entire divorce process Nicole shared her knowledge and expertise enabling me to make the decisions that were right for my circumstances. Her excellent communication skills ensured that I understood each step of the process and the potential outcomes and consequences of the decisions I was making. She was a true partner, listening to what was most important to me and working hard to help me realize it. For me the most difficult part of accepting the settlement was knowing when to push or acquiesce. In those moments I was very grateful for Nicole's critical insights, clear head and candor which led to the best possible outcome I could have gotten.

Absolutely Masterful
Nicole did an amazing job in my recent case. I came to her after my modification was mismanaged and not going in the right direction. She strategically approached achieving the resolution I desired. Nicole was particularly adept at conflict resolution and proved a skilled negotiator. Moreover, Nicole takes the time to ensure you are comfortable with the plan of action and understand thoroughly the potential outcomes. I highly recommend her.

Gave me strength when I felt powerless
Nicole was exactly what I needed during my divorce. She was prompt with repsonces, experienced with future issues that were avioded because of her expertise. I feel more confident knowing I have her on my side. I have already recommended her to my friend.
