Divorce and custody are the most debilitating events I have experienced in my life. Normally a successful take charge kind of guy I found I could do nothing right in my attempt to negotiate with my now ex-spouse. I needed someone to not only protect me but actually fight for me and my family. I can state unequivocally Nancy Larkin Taylor did just that.
Admittedly it was a protracted and nasty process due to the other side's unwillingness to compromise on any point. There was not even the least acknowledgment that I had a role in co-parenting. My rights as a parent and active participant in our children's lives were challenged on every front. Although the hearings were insisted by my ex-spouse it became clear that it was fortunate and necessary to go to trial as this was the only way to a resolution.
Nancy was always on top of the information required. Ms. Taylor kept me informed immediately and explained what was going. Nancy protected me from making mistakes and set expectations staying with what pertain to law not my emotions. Despite confronting an opposing team of lawyers Ms. Taylor was unflappable and took control. Every time we were brought to court we achieved the goals we had set and then some. Ms. Taylor's presentation of facts and focusing on the applicable laws always prevailed.
Further Ms. Taylor used time economically where I could have spent untold hours bemoaning my situation or on frivolous motions. Ms Taylor has helped me secure a safe and reasonable custody order that will promote co-parenting and what is in best interest our children. Ms Taylor stood and fought for me when I was in the worst shape of my life and could not stand up for myself. Although I realize it does not promise a working relationship with my ex-spouse Ms Taylor won a solid agreement and protections to that end. I cannot thank Ms. Taylor enough.
I can finally with confidence get on to the business of my family and my life. Now I have a co-parenting arrangement that provides safeguards against misbehavior and actions that are detrimental to our children. Going to court was not my choice or desire but became necessary for a resolution. Ms. Taylor ensured my side was clearly heard and won results better than I could have hoped. I give Nancy Larkin Taylor my highest recommendation for protecting my rights as a father and winning a custody agreement above my best expectations that will be inclusive and in the best interest of our children.

I just went through a child custody case with Nancy and she was exceptional. She was very knowledgable of the laws and very upfront with me about what to expect. Whenever I had a question about something she always got back to me within twenty four hours, which isn't common with most lawyers. She mailed or e-mailed a copy of every form that was filed in the court or sent to the other attorney so I could review it. She also went over every document with me to make sure I understood what I was agreeing to before I signed anything. I feel if it wasn't for her persistence with the other lawyer I would still be waiting to have custody of my daughter. The other lawyer was constantly asking for continuances. When we did go to court, Mrs. Taylor conducted herself in a very professional manner with not only the judge but also the other lawyer. I think very highly of her and her work and would definitely reccommend her to anyone fighting for their children.

Nancy is a lawyer with whom you can build a relationship of trust as the foundation to get through your divorce as best as possible. I find her to be attentive, knowledgeable & compassionate. This is important: getting a lawyer to help you get divorced is not a process of 'you handle it, I'll just get on with my life". In my particular case she has taken a decisive mediation approach, because that's how I wished to move forward. When it was time to get down to business, she did, especially handling my ex's nasty lawyer with tact & fact. Most importantly, for me, she has brought timely humor into our interactions which is key in navigating the choppy waters of divorce.
