From the very first consultation that I had with Nick, I knew hiring him would be the right choice. I explained my situation to Nick regarding pursuing custody of my 8 year old son and my 4 year old daughter as well as divorcing my unfaithful wife. From the very beginning Nick was very aggressive in moving forward with my case. Not only did Nick want to win but he had a genuine interest in my case, he really cared. During the most difficult time in my life, Nick was always accessible, always professional, and always honest. Not only did Nick represent me in my divorce and custody case, he also had a bogus protective order put on me by my ex-wife thrown out. He articulates his points in court very well and was well prepared. As an african american male pursuing primary physical custody of my children, I must admit I was quite intimidated going into trial. Nick presented my case in what was the most emotionally draining two days of my life. In the end, Nick was able to get me primary physical custody of my 8 year old son and my 4 year old daughter. Nick and his legal team are the best!

I was a defendant in a change of custody trial which was to begun 10:00 AM on July 13, 2016.
I met Mr. Solan first time on Tuesday, July 12, 2016 at 11:15 AM alongside his partner Mr. Jacob Alzamora. They reviewed my case and decided to take the case at around 1:00 PM.
They spent next 4 hours or so to review the documents I had provided to them and also sent an associate to the Court house for additional documents to understand the case.
We met at the Court house the next day at around 9:45 AM. The trial began at around 11:45 AM due to plaintiff not arranging the Court reporter ahead of time where Mr. Solan stepped in and arranged the reporter.
At the trial by the end of the first day the Plaintiff and 5 other witnesses testified against me where it seemed like I stood no chance at all but for some reason Mr. Solan was calm.
Next day, Thursday July 14, 2016 at around 9:15 AM Mr. Solan move the Court to dismiss the case with a extremely compelling and undeniable defense the Honorable Judge dismissed the case by 9:45 AM.
It is important to note the opposing counsel had over 60 years of experience in the same Court house and extremely famous in family law and has a reputation of not losing a case was accompanied by an associate.
In conclusion Mr. Solan was my David in David & Goliath match.
Certain things to remember when dealing with Mr. Solan, be extremely honest about everything even if you have done something wrong. Also he WILL ask you to be 100% honest in your testimony.
I have had several lawyers in my case in the past but Mr. Solan is different breed, he actually listens to you and actually cares. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Solan and his partner Mr. Alzamora in any legal situation.

Nick is an excellent professional trial attorney who is intelligent, honest and ethical. He helped me get custody of my two boys (ages: 1 year and two months) and won the protective order trial at the Fairfax circuit court. The results were no alimony and no child support as the wife was asking. Going through custody or domestic issues is never easy and its often difficult to focus and keep track of objectives, with Nick and his excellent team of lawyers and administrative staff, I was able to maintain my sanity in these tough times so I can focus on recovery and begin to heal.
Given his engineering background, Nick offers unique advantage to a case by focusing meticulously on the substance of the matter and discounting any here-say or extraneous data. He is knowledgeable, articulate, well-prepared, and patient and goal oriented with mission focus to achieve the best possible outcome for his client. We need more lawyers like Nick in this world and therefore I highly recommend his for any/all legal matters.

As a father and husband looking at divorce, it can sometimes seem a foregone conclusion how it will unfold.
The day I began working with Nick and his team I began to feel relieved about the nightmare situation I was in. Today I have primary physical custody of my two daughters.
Confidently placing my trust in Nick leading up to trial, I was able to focus on myself and healing.
At trial he was well prepared, well spoken, and charismatic. Nick is a lawyer who wants to win. He is a professional. He is very intelligent. He is a lawyer who truly cares. I highly recommend Nick Solan.

I hired Mr. Solan to represent me with my reckless driving violation. I was hoping have the ticket reduced to speeding but Mr. Solan noticed discrepancies with the way my ticket was written and was able to have my case dismissed. I was extremely nervous to attend court because I have not really been in a courtroom very often. Having Mr. Solan lead the way resulted in a favorable outcome. I can't imagine going to court without his expertise. Great lawyer. Highly recommend.

I hired Mr. Solan to modify my existing child support order. He handled everything in a timely and professional manor. Mostly everything was completed via email so communication was painless with my busy work schedule. Hands down the best attorney I've ever hired.

Mr. Solan did a great job with my case that had a lot of unusual aspects to it. There was money being hidden by my ex-spouse and issues concerning Autism that my ex was trying to use to her advantage. We ended up going to trial and I the outcome was pretty much what Mr. Solan had predicted during the initial consultation, and some. I would hire him again instantly, he knows his stuff. I know I am going back to him if/when similar issues arise. Highly recommend.

Very professional and talented attorney. His representation during the pre-trial and court proceedings was second to none. Nick's help allowed me the opportunity to continue to spend time with my daughter.

Excellent attorney and very professional. He handled my
case very fast and helped me get through my divorce without the headache. If you are looking for a divorce attorney, I would strongly recommend Mr. Solan. He is fast to respond to phone calls and emails. He also takes his time to explain things and answer any questions you may have. I would like to say thank you Nicholas for being a great help and for representing me .

Nick represented me in my recent divorce case and I was completely satisfied with the level of his support. I found him always available to take my calls and to walk me through the various stages of the process. Although the case was straightforward -- there were no minor children involved and the financial elements were uncomplicated -- the process was prolonged because my ex was uncooperative and unresponsive. Nick managed the details well, exhibited great patience, and brought the case to a positive conclusion.
