The Best Lawyer Around!
I hired Nicole to represent me in a traffic case. I was from out of state and chose her based on her online reviews. She did not disappoint. She was very down to earth and made the process very easy. I provided the info. that she requested and I couldn't have been more satisfied with the results of my case. I would give her 10 stars if I could, she is that good!

Excellent Attorney
Nicole Naum and her assistant Katia paid excellent attention to me and my case during covid! Nicole’s experienced advice to me resulted in a positively manageable outcome, and calmed my fears. Nicole gave me honest expectations and advocated for me with no objection from the prosecutor. I highly recommend her defense.

Hiring Nicole was one of my greatest decisions in life!
In an uncertain time of my life, facing some serious criminal charges to include 2 felonies, I really needed an attorney like Nicole to take the reigns and make me FEEL confident that things would turn out ok. Nicole's expertise and positive outlook were instrumental in keeping me in a positive mindset and ultimately getting my charges nolle processed. Not only did I end up w the best possible outcome, but Nicole was extremely proactive in getting the evidence we needed immediately, she is very responsive, came up w the best defenses and really educated me on the entire process along the way. I cannot recommend Nicole enough!!!

She is just tremendous
Three times now I have used this attorney for my kids for a variety of offenses. Each time Nicole has blown us away. Follow her pre-trial advice and just let her take the wheel. I cannot understate how competent, skilled, responsive and effective Nicole and her firm are. You will not regret retaining her....she is just fantastic....AND....affordable!

DUI 1st Offense
WOW! I had many consultations with quite a few other firms for my case and as soon as I had my consultation with Nicole, I knew she was the attorney for me. She explained the process to me and ensured that I understood every possible outcome. Through her knowledge, confidence, and strategic planning she was able to get my charge reduced to improper driving. I honestly could not have done this without her. She literally saved my career and I will put my money on her every time.

Very responsive, honest, and an extraordinary attorney
I hired Nicole for a traffic Class 2 Misdemeanor, caught ON VIDEO, in an unpopular/distant jurisdiction. I have had no previous experience with this type of situation, the severity of a misdemeanor, the court system, and finding representation. I was served/charged on 12/27/19, late on a Friday night of a holiday week in a public parking lot surrounded by troopers, absolutely humiliating and unnecessary. The timing was not the best to seek and retain counsel. Additionally, I had only a small window prior to my court date. I started calling and emailing attorneys that Saturday morning. Between my wife and I, we contacted numerous attorneys. Nicole has her cell listed on her site, so we gave it a shot and left a message. I was getting the run around or no response, or horrific scenarios from several other attorneys, it was extremely discouraging. Left a message for Nicole, and she returned my call later that day, a Sunday! Instead of preaching to me right off the bat, she asked about my concerns, and my worst case scenarios. She took each of those explained the law behind them and calmed the huge storm of worry for me. She never made me feel like my actions were as dumb and wreckless as they were or that my case was any less important, despite it not being a tremendously serious charge in the eyes of the law. She was very responsive, explained things in detail, made me feel comfortable asking questions that were probably pretty obvious, and was reassuring throughout. She told me exactly what I needed to do, which I did, and on my first court date she was able to get the charges down to a non moving violation with a small fine, and the ordeal was over. Nicole was professional, honest, straightforward, and did what she said she would do every step of the way. I highly recommend her, and have recommended her to several people. I would hire her again without a thought, however, I hope I never need to. Thank you Nicole!!

Great lawyer and firm
I would like to thank Nicole and Katia for making the legal process as smooth as possible. I never imagined being in this position and I am thankful Nicole was there to work with the prosecutor and myself for the best possible outcome. I was charged with a DUI leaving Jiffy Lube Live in the summer and Nicole was able to use her legal expertise to have the charge dropped to a reckless. I knew I chose the right lawyer for my situation when I spoke to Nicole initially. She was able to point out what went wrong during my arrest and confidently stand by the facts through the entire process. She was always reachable via call/text for any questions I had. She will go out of her way to get the facts on the case. I highly recommend Nicole if anyone needs legal help.

Class Act Attorney and Law Firl
Nicole Naum and JC Estevez are phenomenal attorneys. I was accused of a heinous crime that I did not commit at the age of 16. They were extremely professional throughout the entire process. Nicole and JC always gave me the pros and cons of every situation that arose along the way. They spent numerous hours of time preparing every little detail for trial. After almost 4 years I finally had my chance in front of a jury and these two went to work on my behalf like no other. I was found not guilty and thanks to their expertise and believing in me I can now move on with my life. Thank you Nicole and JC.

Amazing lawyer
Nicole was confident that we had a good case and she not only won my case but got all charges dismissed and now the entire case can be removed from my record. If I ever was to have a legal issue I would hire her again 10/10 times.

Highly recommend Nicole Naum!
I was arrested for a DUI at a checkpoint after leaving a concert at the Jiffy Lube amphitheater. I contacted Nicole the next day and she really helped put my mind at ease with her attention to detail towards understanding my case, and her confidence and reassurances that she would work every possible legal angle to get the best outcome. Nicole (with the help of Katia) was very responsive throughout the entire process, and in the end Nicole negotiated a plea for me of general reckless driving, which was a far better outcome than what I thought would be possible. I can't thank Nicole and Katia enough for all of their support and efforts.

Awsome Lawyer
She was great. She listens to you and provides you with details about the possible outcomes. I like hearing things the way it is rather than getting false consolidations. She is very nice to talk to and express your thoughts and feelings to which, believe me or not, at times does calm you down. She does not deter from going to trial if necessary. I had a difficult case of possible DUI which was reduced to reckless. She had confidence in my case enough to bring the case from District court to Circuit court even after we went into trial in the district court which we almost, sort of, won. She does not back out of a challenge and does look at all aspects of the case. You will get peace of mind knowing that she is handling your case. And she is very friendly too and thats a plus and will always respond to your queries coz i think she kinda has a feeling of what a person may be going through. Also she seems to be well renowned in Manassas court so that helps too. loved having her representing me. if you dont want to mess around with your case go with her or at least go talk to her once before you chose your lawyer and you will know what i mean.

Speeding
After I received a speeding ticket in Prince William County, a dozen lawyers sent me solicitation letters. I called a few, and Nicole was the most enthusiastic and specific about how to handle my case. I hired Nicole, and followed her instructions carefully. Nicole was thoroughly professional every step of the way, and negotiated a significantly reduced charge for me.
