Best in the Biz..
I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for all of your hard work and dedication throughout my legal case. Your expertise, professionalism, and guidance were invaluable. I truly could not have navigated this process without your help. From our initial consultation to the final resolution of my case, you consistently demonstrated a deep understanding of the law and a commitment to securing the best possible outcome for me and my daughter. Your ability to explain complex legal concepts in a way that was easy for me to understand was greatly appreciated, it made me feel confident and informed every step of the way. I also appreciate your willingness to answer all my questions and address any concerns that I had. Even on your time off away from your desk you were there for me. Your responsiveness and availability made me feel like I was a top priority and I cannot thank you enough for that. Ultimately, your hard work and dedication paid off and I am incredibly grateful for the positive outcome of my case. I know that I would have not have achieved this without your help and for that, I am truly thankful. Thank you again for all that you have done for me and my daughter. Your professionalism, expertise and dedication have made a tremendous difference in our lives and I will always be grateful for your help.

Expert in the field
I had an urgent matter which unexpectedly happened and Nancy was with me from the beginning to the end. The communication was excellent. Nancy is amazing in court. She the explained process ahead of time and made it easier for me in a horrible situation. Nancy created the perfect strategy for my case. She also easily adjusted when some of the court documents weren't processed correctly (not Nancy's fault). She has an amazingly supportive team as well. I highly recommend Nancy for your family court needs.

Nancy handled my divorce case with excellence
Nancy Horta is a very knowledgeable and empathetic Lawyer. Simply put, she's outstanding at what she does. She took over my case and demonstrated her professionalism and excellence in applying the laws which mattered for my case. She protected my interests in custody, alimony and child support with the skills of a surgeon. She’s reasonable with her fees, will work with you to do her very best to help in every possible way, she’s direct and thorough. Nancy has a warm, pleasing personality and she's a bulldog when necessary. She's very confident and did not waver when things got tough. Nancy went above and beyond the divorce agreement and further assisted me even after the case was over. I'm very blessed she handled my divorce case meticulously.

Highly recommended
Nancy helped transform me to a no BS strong independent woman. She has a quick response time and cares about her clients. She has made me laugh through some of the hardest situations and provided professional legal advice while helping me separate emotions to make the best decisions for me. She also taught me how to deal with situations after the divorce. HIRE HER. You won’t regret it.

A perfect hire!
I was involved in a high conflict custody case and was referred to Nancy. Nancy did not sugar coat anything that would happen, and many times was a calming force in such a stressful situation. She's genuine, and truly cares about her clients. I would strongly recommend her.

Easily the Best Family Attorney in Bergen County
I have been in a very contentious custody battle over my 5 year old daughter since April 2016 and have worked with a total of 4 attorneys to date. Some of these attorneys were highly rated. In less than a year Nancy has done more for my custody case in getting me increased custody with my daughter than the other 3 attorneys did for me in over 3 years constantly in and out of court. Nancy is more than worthy to be classified as a “Super Lawyer“ and probably the best family attorney in the Bergen County Family Court System. She has known every judge and every adversarial attorney we have faced and has successfully strategized against each and every one.

Incredible!
Nancy was the best of the best! Not only was she professional and skillful, but she was also personable and truly cared about me as a client. Nancy made a very complicated situation seem easy and in the end, she fought for what was fair. I would definitely recommend her services!

I am very pleased with Nancy's representation. She is a wonderful attorney and a kind and compassionate person. She was with me every step of the way and still is for a few outstanding issues that I have with my ex. I would highly recommend her.

Profesional and Incredible
Nancy was an immense help of getting through a very difficult time in my life. Nancy was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and adamant about getting what was fair. She is also extremely personably, understanding, and supportive. It was a pleasure working with her- she made the process so easy. I cannot recommend her services enough! If my personal life goes awry again, she will surely be the first person I call!

Excellent Lawyer
I came to Nancy for my divorce. Not only did I hire her as my divorce lawyer but she became my voice of reason and kept me level headed through this whole crazy process. My divorce was very complex, but with Nancy’s experience she kept it on track and made it look easy. The other attorney didn’t have a chance. She is honest & upfront about everything. I have already referred her to multiple friends.

Made the best out of a not so good situation!
I hired Nancy for my divorce attorney a little over a year ago. She was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and always there when I needed her. She answered all my questions and issues in timely fashion and she made me completely comfortable with her recommendations. She didn’t push me to do something I didn’t want to just because she thought it may be a better outcome. Nancy listened to me while still helping me in the divorce process. I would definitely use her again!

Excellence, knowledgeable, and adept. These are the 3 things I think off when discribing my attorney; Nancy Horta.
As a former law enforcement officer, I’ve witnessed my share of attorney’s over the years. After hiring Ms. Horta for my recent divorce, it became clear in a very short time that I absolutely made the right choice. She was extremely knowledgeable, and attentive to my situation. She responded to any and all inquiries I had pertaining to my difficult situation, in an efficient and timely manner. In the end I was very pleased with the outcome that she litigated on my behalf. If you’re looking for an attorney that never takes her eye off the ball, you’d be wise to hire Nancy Horta.

Fabulous!! What a lawyer!
I could not have asked for a better outcome in my case. Nancy did exceptional work with my case. I couldn't be more thankful for that. I felt very welcomed by her and from the moment I first met her I knew I was in great hands. Nancy is very knowledgeable and realistic throughout the entire process; she always answered all of my questions and was able to put my mind at ease with matters that I was nervous about or unsure of. I am truly thankful to have met such a professional person who did just what I needed to have a better outcome for me!

The right place
Nancy was dependable, caring and knowledgeable. I knew from my initial conversation with Nancy, that I wanted her to represent me. It was a difficult time to have gone through a divorce, but I felt more confident and optimistic with her legal advisement. She genuinely cared about my concerns and replied in a timely manner. I highly recommend her to represent anyone who is looking for a trustworthy and skilled attorney. I know they will be in the right place too.

Wonderful attorney and a very good person!
I cannot thank Nancy enough for her help during my complicated divorce and some issues after the divorce. She's very efficient, available when you need her, straightforward and tactful at the same time. She has an ability to make you feel at ease during the most difficult times, and you feel like talking with a good and very knowledgeable friend. She got me better terms for my divorce than I expected at the beginning, and when I was about to compromise, she insisted not to do so and she was absolutely right. I would highly recommend Nancy to everyone. Good luck!

My life saver!!
Mrs. Horta was efficient, caring, and available to discuss matters pertaining to the case. She was able to resolve outstanding matters, that others had not. Excellent in troubleshooting, and mediation during times of great difficulty in my life!

Great help during a trying time
Nancy took over my divorce after I realized that handling it on my own was not the 'way to keep it amicable.' I thought using a lawyer would erode trust and make it more adversarial than it needed to be. Not the case. Nancy understands how to handle a delicate matter without giving ground OR escalating tensions. She handled it expertly. I was very happy with the results. And the matter was settled much quicker and cleaner than I expected.

Best Attorney in New Jersey!!
Nancy came highly recommended and I am more then happy & relieved that we went with her. I came to her with an issue I thought was impossible to get out of. I was in tears & extremely worried. My 1st consultation was 2 hours & by the time we finished she made me feel so at ease, it was like speaking to a friend. She is very committed, very knowledgable & so on point. She explained every step & every outcome that could happen to my husband & I, always so patient & real. She only promised what she knew would happen & I couldn't be more satisfied. Nancy stayed focus & made me feel as if I were her only client. I know she looks young but she has an extensive amount of experience. My husband & I were so happy with our outcome that I jokingly told him if something would ever happen between him & myself, Nancy would be my attorney. Again, amazing attorney!!

Great Combination of Empathetic and Aggressive.
Nancy went about matters rather aggressively and does not waste any time. In the end, Nancy felt more like a friend than a lawyer, she was easy to reach and always made herself available - great outcome to boot! Highly recommend Nancy, she will give you expert guidance and is completely fair and reasonable with her fees. It's refreshing to speak of an attorney in such light...
