Nancy helped me navigate the most important and roughest waters of my life for over two years. Always putting my children first, and explaining the law every step of the way, she helped me achieve the most optimal outcome possible. She is undoubtedly very knowledgeable about divorce laws and procedures in NYS, but also, she's compassionate and tough, and will fight for you when/if necessary. I would highly recommend Nancy to anyone going through this difficult process without hesitation.

After being completely blindsided with custody papers over my daughter and having only 3 days to retain legal counsel, I met with Nancy Kellman and immediately felt at ease. She listened to my entire situation and reassured me that I wasn't going to lose custody. She went through the entire process step by step, from what questions would be asked of me, paperwork/documents that were needed from me, to which side of the court room we would be seated and what seat was mine. Her or her staff were always available when needed. She is incredibly knowledgable and everything she said would happen, did. She answered every one of my questions and I had lists upon lists of them. When some outrageous demands were made during our custody case, she didn't take any crap and fought for what was right and what was fair. She made a very difficult and stressful situation as smooth and easy as possible. She gave wonderful suggestions that I would never think of and in the end I was very satisfied with the outcome of my cases. It was very clear that Nancy was looking out for the wellbeing of my daughter and to make things better for her in the long run. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs family law representation. She is amazing.

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest, Nancy is a 20.
Nancy's focus on what was best for me and not what would result in increased billable hours for her was clear to me in all our interactions.
Ironically, Nancy was recommended to me by an attorney friend who saw Nancy in action prepared, practical, articulate and real. Unfortunately for my friend, Nancy represented her ex-husband. Many year later, my friend saved Nancy's information and knew her skills would benefit someone one day. That someone was me.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse Ms Kellman. I worked with her & her staff as opposing counsel on a contested divorce. She & her staff were not only very competent, but also very accommodating - despite respective clients who were "at war" with each other. Persons with Divorce & Family Law cases in Westchester & vicinity will be well-served by hiring her.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Nancy and I recently completed a trial together. While the case was highly contested and oftentimes heated, I found her to be courteous, fair and reasonable despite the challenging circumstances. She was very professional and always prepared.
