Mrs. Nowlis assisted me during with out a doubt one of the most difficult times of my life, my divorce. Her office made sure that every available resource was at my disposal and guided me through a time of great uncertainty. My divorce from my wife of 15 years was handled with extreme responsibility, attentiveness, importance, discretion and a sense of devotion as the lives of my three children were involved. Mrs. Nowlis completely understood that I wanted the transition for my children to be as seemless as possible and she took that responsibility to heart and made it her top priority in my case. Since my divorce was finalized in 2011 and much to my dismay, I have had to use Mrs. Nowlis's services time and time again and she has always put me at ease and calmly carried out her duties professionaly and unwaveringly. As much as I hate to need her services as these matters are always quite sensitive, it is always a comfort to know that I can contact her for a knowledgeable opinion and swift action. I will without a doubt recommend her to all I encounter.

I originally hired Nancy for my divorce back in 2010 and found a swift resolution in July of 2011. Having such a great and quick experience, I rehired her again when my former wife decided to take me back to court for a post-judgment issue in 2013. Nancy is an extremely intelligent, gracious, kind and caring attorney. I would highly recommend anyone to seek legal representation from Ms. Nowlis. Nancy went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable with my decisions in both the divorce and post-judgment cases. I definitely will hire her again should the issue arise. Thanks Nancy!

Nancy Nowlis has represented me in two family law matters: a divorce after 14 years of marriage (resolved in mediation) and later a modification of a child visitation agreement (taken to trial). From my initial consultation to the conclusion of the second matter, I found Nancy to be extremely professional, unusually compassionate, extraordinarily competent and efficient at all times. At every stage, Nancy thoroughly educated me on what to expect, the legalities of the situation and my options. Since Nancy practices ONLY family law, she is intimately familiar with all of the statutes and nuisances of this area of law. She is also familiar with the area’s judges and how they tend to rule on matters. She provided me guidance in decision making and confidence that she would fight for my decision. If she felt my decision was not in my best interest, she clearly explained why and what the repercussions might be. All decisions were ultimately my call. Unlike other attorneys that I have encountered, Nancy never delayed, bullied or used scare tactics to secure or retain me as her client. Additionally, Nancy was truly an advocate for my child throughout the process – always advising what was in my daughter’s best interests, even if I was upset and wanted a different outcome. Nancy and her assistant Loretta have consistently been incredibly prompt in returning phone calls and providing me copies of legal documents. In most cases, a phone call was returned within hours and paperwork was provided in that day’s outgoing mail (even if I was not waiting for it). I was not a “special client” who somehow received “special treatment” due to my large bank account or a power position I held in society. I was a “regular” client who was treated with the utmost respect and importance simply because that is how Nancy treats her clients. I have recommended Nancy to several co-workers who have spoken highly of Nancy and received equally exemplary results in their legal issues. It has been over four years since my divorce and I am still entirely content with the mediated agreement Nancy hammered out for me. I am also very pleased with the recent modification trial results. As always, Nancy had thoroughly prepared for the trial and was ready for each issue as it was encountered. I would recommend Nancy Nowlis without hesitation to anyone in need of an excellent family law attorney.

I endorse Nancy Nowlis. I have seen her in practice and in her office and when it comes to family law she has the precision of an experienced neurosurgeon. I have seen Nancy do some amazing things and would surely recommend her to my own mother.
