Answered my questions
I had several questions about custody rights as a father and she was kind and understanding. She gave me some peace of mind in a difficult situation.

Caring, committed and communicating divorce/custody lawyer
Felt comfortable with Attorney Kairys knowing that she was looking out for my family's best interest. She maintained professionalism throughout all my proceedings and helped me throughout all my issues. Divorce is an awful thing to have to go through but it is nice to have someone that cares on your side. She was very responsive and thorough. All communications were done in a timely manner.

efficient, knowledgeable and thoughtful
I met Nicole Kairys through Second Saturday class to get an idea on what options i had since i was considering a divorce. I immediately felt such comfort with her then, I knew she was the one I wanted to represent me. She answered every question I had, followed up with thoughts and scenarios I never considered, and guided me along the way to protect myself financially, and always made sure I understood what was happening and what could happen. She also gave me “tough love” on ideas I had on a real estate matter I believed to be hopeless, and made it possible thanks to her own networking. My particular divorce was pretty straight forward so from my initial filing to my declaration of divorce, it was 6 months and relatively fast. I also got to see the correspondence she sent to my now ex-husband. She also took the time in explaining things clearly - so that even he had comfort in what was happening. Thank you Nicole, for guiding me along the scary, unknown path of divorce and financial protection.

Pleased I hired Nicole Kairys
Glad I had Nicole Kairys as my divorce lawyer. Nicole was very thorough and thoughtful during this whole process. Nicole was very professional and in control when the opposing lawyer was hot headed and unprofessional. This was a very unpleasant time for me and I was comfortable and thankful knowing that Nicole had my back and my best interest.

Nicole Kairys
Ms Kairys went “above and beyond” to bring a settlement to a close, despite the extreme uncooperative nature of opposing side.

Very knowledgeable and caring
Divorce or any domestic dispute is ugly to say the least. Nicole represented me for a lengthy and hostile divorce. Nicole was honest and direct with the possible outcomes. I was well prepared my Nicole for what to expect each time we had to enter court. She showed compassion and caring but was invested in my case for the best possible scenario for myself and my children. Her knowledge and experience gave me the confidence to enter court each time with her. I would recommend Nicole for any family court matter.

Very Motivated and Considerate to clients needs:
Please read this review because you will not have to read another one, this will be the lawyer you decide on. Ms. Nicole Kairys was outstanding. To be very honest I have only dealt with a few lawyers in my life and when I did they didn't respond to my questions or needs in a fashionable manner but Ms. Kairys was always there for me, she steered me in the right direction, she was compassionate and knew what steps to take to make the results of my son's child support a success in my eyes. Ms. Kairys is far from a Liability she will be an asset if you choose her as your Lawyer so again please, do NOT read any other reviews you can stop here because this should be the lawyer you decide on!

Divorce case
Nicole made a difficult time painless for me. Her attention to detail with my divorce was second to none and I undoubtedly know she had not only my best interest in mind but also the best interest of my daughter. Hands down I would recommend her over anyone. Gary G.

Glad to have Nicole Kairys on my side.
I turned to Ms. Kairys for help when my ex wife decided to try and take full custody of our son. Nicole was very helpful in diffusing this tense situation. She explained my rights as well as multiple options that we could pursue to help me keep custody of my son. Nicole is very knowledgeable and exudes confidence. She is very steady and calm, never making quick knee jerk decisions. I highly recommend Nicole.

Great experience in difficult times
Nicole guided me through a divorce that included a very long period of separation (10 years), many financial complications, and antagonistic and uncooperative opposing council. She was always professional throughout the entire process. I am very grateful for her guidance and her encouragement throughout the ordeal. Thanks for a good job!

Excellent divorce attorney in Pittsburgh
Nicole was always very professional and thorough. She maintained composure while being verbally attacked at meetings and hearings. Her paperwork, documents and hearing presentations were always accurate, unlike opposing counsel: lost emails, inaccurate statements at hearing, deed prepared/filed was in err and needed resigned/filed. Her advice was always beneficial to my outcome. She made an unpleasant situation bearable and successful. Her support team was just as excellent.

Attoney Nicole Kairys
Attorney Nicole Kairys helped us deal with a situation that was not easy. Nicole always made herself available when we needed her advice and counsel. When our situation ended, Nicole was there to finalize our duties. But her work didn't end there, she showed up unexpectedly to stand by us and support us when we needed it most. Nicole Kairys is such a kind and professional attorney and more importantly a genuine human.

Lacked in preparation
Ms Kairys did not properly prepare for my divorce case. I gave her a timeframe as to when a PFA and previous divorce complaint was filed against my husband. She advised there were no such documents and had me sign the divorce complaint she and her staff prepared stating no other divorce action was taken. She did not persue the matters that we spoke about before I retained her. She let the opposing attorney have all the advantages during the proceedings. She then withdrew from my representation and at the time she withdrew she did not disclose that she was sharing/renting space with the opposing attorney.
