Great Lawyer
We hired Stephanie to represent us in an eviction case. She went above and beyond for our family. She was diligent, explained the process, and kept us informed of our choices. Our case was a nightmare, but she did everything legally possible to get our house back. We could not recommend her more highly.

Attorney Nickse is the Best!
We were in need of an attorney to help us sue a paint contractor, who we utilized in past projects with no issues, but ran away from working with us to resolve a problem with a recent project. He knew he was totally wrong and kept avoiding and dancing around. It was very stressful trying to deal with him directly and we didn't get anywhere. Attorney Nickse came highly recommended and they were spot on. Other attorneys speak highly of her as well. From the initial consultation all the way to gavel down and winning our case we felt we were in great hands. All steps were detailed out, decisions weighed carefully, mindful of our budget, and steps handled "to a t". She is professional, knowledgeable, savvy but more importantly friendly, considerate, patient, and very kind. We also utilized her in a civil case for a family member and she took care of him 100%. If we ever need to be represented again in a legal matter Attorney Nickse is our only choice! We couldn't ask for any better. We recommend her 100%. You won't be disappointed. THANK YOU STEPHANIE!

Evicting a Tenant
After contacting Ms. Nickse and having an initial consultation, my husband and I both decided to move forward and hire her. Her experience made the process easy for us. From paperwork, to court dates, to communication; everything went smooth and our tenant was evicted within 2 months. Ms. Nickse was easily reached when we needed advice and we were so impressed when we arrived at court because she had already gotten the ball rolling. It was a terrible situation my husband and I were in, but she made it pain free.

Bank Lawsuit
We hired Attorney Nickse back in the summer of 2017 and as with any case it takes time and just recently she won our case. She has been extremely professional, always kept the lines of communication open. Constantly asking our goals, changes or questions. Would definitely recommend her.

A smart choice
Ms. Nickse did a fabulous job for us! She was very professional, attentive and carefully considered all that we shared before expertly guiding us in a difficult and emotion-filled foreclosure process. She was thoughtful and sensitive throughout and fought for us. Ms. Nickse was thorough and very responsive. We always felt as if we were her only client, even though she has a thriving law practice. I highly recommend her as a smart choice, especially when faced with such a difficult situation. Thank you, Stephanie!
