Exceptional legal representation with a difficult divorce
Mr. Nagulendran's deep expertise in family law was a great help during my challenging divorce. His timely advice and unwavering dedication helped me navigate the emotional turmoil with clarity. Nirm's logical arguments in court were impressive, earning respect from the judge as well as the legal counsel representing the other party. He provided invaluable, unbiased guidance that led to favorable outcomes. I can't thank Nirm enough for his exceptional support and recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone in need of legal representation.

FANTASTIC lawyer - professional, effective and sensitive
Nirm handled my divorce in 2012 with such grace and ease, that it helped me to not only practically deal with the situation but also emotionally. He is extremely professional and effectively fought for the best outcome for me despite my ex-husband's unreasonable demands. Nirm was also sensitive to the cultural aspects of my case which made it all the smoother. I will never forget his support during this difficult time of my life and recommend him to anyone seeking a phenomenal lawyer in his area of expertise!

Excellent lawyer - best choice you can make
Nirm represented me in my divorce, and was there for me during one of the worst times in my life. It was a tumultuous, extremely stressful, and drawn out divorce, that the opposing attorney and my ex created, but Nirm battled them every step of the way. Besides being a phenomenal lawyer, he treats you like you are a member of his family. Also, after going through all of this together I consider him a friend.

Great attorney. Fights till the end, gives you his full attention and always picked up his phone. Unlike others who don’t pay attention at you at all. Very professional.

Best choice!
Hiring Nirm was the best decision I’ve made regarding my case. He listened to the facts and after careful consideration presented the best strategy for the judge. He also helped me keep my emotions in check to avoid any conflict with messaging. I am elated with the way he presented my defense and I highly recommend him. He is a fine counselor and you can’t go wrong with him!

Great job!
I was completely satisfied and grateful for the way in which Nirmalan handled my divorce case. My case was settled during mediation and Nirm's negotiation skills were very impressive to say the least! He defended my position and helped to gain a fair and acceptable settlement for me. I highly recommend his services.

Mr. Nagulendran is an EXCELLENT choice!
I am blessed that my paths crossed with "Nirm", as many call him. Do not let his calm demeanor fool you; this man is a litigation beast and impressive in the court room! His years of experience are evident in his approach to handling a case and explaining possible outcomes. Nirm finished my divorce case in just 9 months with favorable outcomes- this is rare in Central Jersey given that the courts are backed up, especially because of the COVID impact. I was able to reach Nirm on evenings, weekend and even during his vacation. I always hear back from him immediately. Nirm has an outstanding reputation amongst his colleagues and the Court and he earns the respect of new clients through his dedication to their cases, high morale and pleasing settlements. I'd rather keep away from Court but if I or anyone ever needed someone to fight on one's behalf, the choice would undoubtedly be Nirmalan Nagulendran!

A true winner !
Nirmalan is an excellent attorney with a very good understanding of the family law and Hudson county court house. Most clients, including me, tend to get lost in the details. He is sharp to pull up, sort through, and present only the relevant details to get to the desired outcome. He's aggressive when the situation demands it, can think on his feet inside the court room. While nobody can guarantee the desired outcome at every step, all I can say is that ever since I hired Nirmalan, he has not given me a single chance to think that we could have argued it any better.

Pulled me from the deep
To start with I had a situation with the mother of my son that two other lawyers couldn’t resolve. This man Nirm, my lawyer, is level headed professional, sharp as a knife, and has a voice that god gave him to be a lawyer! Back to the knife in my side, my ex would keep my son from me and this has been going on for a few years. Nirm took control, got the judges attention and cleared things up! I was not feeling good about anything until Nirmalan plowed through all the court jargon and I was on my way to seeing my boy again. You want a voice for your hard times, don’t be a fool and go with the other guy. Nirmalan is as great as they come! A fighter for fairness, and results and equality. You have his name now call him, I did, life is great again. Thanks Nirm !!!!

Smartest attorney I know
There are over 50,000 attorneys in NJ but there are very few smart ones who will put themselves on the line to fight for you. John Adams said it the best that it was more important to protect the innocent than to punish the guilty. Family law is the wild wild west and Nirm understands the landscape better than anyone. In my divorce that has cost me over $150K against a law firm that has a dozen lawyers at their disposal, Nirm is the last man standing. He knows the law and know the Hudson County court system better than anyone. He has an excellent work ethic and is accessible on weekends or weekdays, whether is 5AM or 7PM. I don’t recall a time he did not call me back on the same day. He has become a friend and I could not have gone 2 years into this divorce without him having my back.

Best lawyer I have ever had
I had a very important custody case from the moment I reached out to Nirm and explained what was happening he was there. We were on the path together every step of the way. I know it’s about getting paid, but he was different he listened, understood, and completed the task at hand in a timely manner. Even with the pandemic upon us and everything limited the task was completed. I am very satisfied and I highly recommend him to be your lawyer. Nirmalan Nagulendran

Got me out!
I hired Nirmalan (Nirm) to help me get out of a very difficult situation and I'm glad I did. He fought for my case and was able to get me what I wanted.

Highly recommended
Nirm handled my divorce and handled it well. He did an excellent job of listening and communicating -- I could always get him on the phone. And he handled things the way I wanted them handled; I never felt that I was getting the pro-forma, standard divorce case that he gives to everyone. That human intelligence was important to me, because divorces aren't fun.

Best Attorney in NJ
I love Nirm's style. He knows what issues to highlight and which ones to avoid in front of a judge. He knows exactly how to handle the opposing attorney too. He has a direct, smooth and effective approach. Most of all, I find him fair and he has a very kind heart. He is personable yet professional. Worth every penny. I used his firm for my divorce and again a few years later in 2019 for a motion. I am pleased with the results and highly recommend him.

Great JOB!
After the untimely death of one of his partners, Nirm to over my contentious divorce. As an attorney myself(I knew enough NOT to have a fool for a client..aka..me), I hold myself as well as other attys to a very high standard of practice. Nirm met and exceeded my expectation by understanding the nuances of my matter as well as providing me excellent "local" information regarding the Court/Judges/standards which is so very significant when involved with litigation. I obtained a MORE than fair settlement in a matter that I anticipated never settling..Thank you Nirm and the team, great job!

Excellent attorney
I retained Nirm for my highly contentious post-divorce parenting time issue. In the past I had retained a few attorneys, but Nirm was the only attorney that exceeded my expectations and provided competent counsel that produced the results my child and I needed. I recommend him 100 percent. Nirm was exceptional in his legal knowledge, courtroom presence, appropriately setting my expectations and getting me my parenting time that my ex was opposed to. I hired another firm for my initial divorce and paid for that mistake in the long-run with incompetent counsel. After hiring Nirm post-divorce, I was able to see the difference and there is no comparison, he is 100% dedicated to the the needs of his clients. Divorce is an emotional process with lasting implications. Definitely do your due diligence when hiring any firm to represent your interests and choose the one that is best for you. I can honestly say that Nirm was worth every dime and was the very best for me. I highly recommend him.

Great at what he does...
Nirm was awesome throughout my entire case! I had an extremely complex case and he helped to keep things on track. Although the other side was not playing fair, Nirm was strategic and thoughtful in our appoach. He ended up getting me 50/50 joint custody of my kids, which even the judge noted in my order, was extremely rare for a father to get. Nirm has the ability to make tough concepts easier to understand, especially when so much is personally invested. I was better able to navigate what was really important and let go of those things that would not help my case as much. He was a pleasure to work with and I would definitely refer him to anyone who was in need of his services. Not to mention, he has a great sense of humor and was extremely easy to talk to from the start. His vast experience shined through in every aspect of my case. I think I ended up the best position possible given my circumstances. Thank you to Nirm and his office for all they have done.

Well balanced and detail-oriented litigator
Nirm helped me navigate through a very complex divorce. Throughout the process, he skillfully pressed issues that needed to be pressed, and pulled my focus away from the issues that ultimately were not important to me and were distracting me. Ultimately, he helped to protect my legal and parental custody rights, and I am grateful that he and his office were on my side.

I didn't know lawyers like this even existed!
Nirm is unbelievable. My case was very complicated because it involved custody issues with my grandson, DYFS, law guardians, a heroin-addicted daughter, biological father, paternal grandparents, & blah blah blah! I called Nirm's law office on a SUNDAY no less, & Cara Corbo responded immediately & put Nirm on the case. How he gathered this group of characters together by Monday morning for an emergency hearing I'll never know, but he did & the case was decided in my favor. Nirm's only drawback is that he is TOO knowledgeable & will sometimes grow short on patience, but he will never throw you under the bus. He's pricey, but worth every penny. The old saying is true - you get what you pay for!

Pleased with Mr. Nagulendran
I had some pressing family issues and recently retained Nirm's services. He was very responsive to my numerous emails and telephone calls. He was able to get me the results I was looking for. I am in a better place because of him.
