About Nicole

Learn Nicole’s areas of practice.

The nicest compliment I’ve ever received about Sodoma Law was from a judge who described us as “smart, tenacious, and compassionate.” When clients come to us in the middle of a divorce or a custody battle, they deserve that blend of qualities from each of our family law attorneys. They need family law attorneys who will fight for them in the courtroom and empower them to achieve their goals at a difficult time in their lives.

 

When I opened the doors to Sodoma Law in 2008, I wanted to build a team who would help every client navigate the hurdles of separation and divorce with empathy and determination – in and out of court. I wanted to surround myself with people who live and breathe family law like I do. This practice is my passion; it’s not my job, but rather, who I am.

 

In hindsight, I have to believe that the events of my childhood led me on this path. I often joke with my family that my experience as a child of parents with “irreconcilable differences” predestined my career. As a family law attorney, I feel the advantage of understanding the experience of separation and divorce through the eyes of an adult and as a young girl. That experience was fraught with anxiety, especially at the beginning. I believe it’s our job, as family law attorneys, to educate our clients on their various legal options so as to reduce that anxiety and allow them to feel more in control of their cases. At our firm, each attorney and staff member believes not only in their ability to make a difference in a client’s life but also their ability to be supportive of a client’s emotional, spiritual and physical well being.

 

After more than a decade of practicing as a family law attorney, I know that when our clients contact us, they are typically making one of the biggest decisions of their lives. They each have somehow empowered themselves enough to make the journey to change what he or she has known…whether it was for one year or twenty years. I understand it is not always hard for everyone, but change affects us all. I see it with my clients. I saw it with my own parents.

 

 

Working with someone you trust is critical. From the moment we discuss your case, you will know that I will always do my absolute best to handle your concerns as if they are my own.

Helped to win in successful coparenting
Nicole and her team were beyond helpful in a long 5 year process trying to find what would work best for a long distance coparenting situation. I am now communicating well with my ex, my daughters have a visitation schedule that works well for everyone involved and we are no longer in need of legal guidance. It was a long road and Sodoma Law was supportive, informative and caring throughout the entire process. It’s a relief to finally feel ease in co-parenting. Thank you so much Sodoma Law for getting me through one of the most difficult situations in my life.

"Top of the line" service
When I first decided to take steps in getting a divorce, I thought I was looking down a long, hard road. Nicole showed me that there was someone there who understood what I was going through. She eased me through the entire process and made me feel like I had someone on my side. Sodoma Law's level of professionalism is unmatched. I would highly reccomend Nicole and her firm to any one of my close friends or family members.

Sodoma Law Secured a Meaningful & Lasting Relationship With My Son
Nicole Sodoma and her entire team were nothing short of professional from the moment I first met with her. She took on my case after I made the decision to switch attorneys in what had become a very drawn out custody issue. While I understand that many attorneys will shy away from taking over a case in progress, Nicole was willing to jump right in and that made all the difference in the world regarding my relationship with my son Henry. What made me feel most comfortable (aside from her willingness to take over my case) was that I always felt she truly listened to me, cared, and understood where I was coming from. She was always upfront with me and managed my expectations realistically regardless of the circumstances and I never doubted she was going to fight as hard as she could for me.......and to me, that says is all.
