In 2009 I hired Ms. Nolan to represent me in a family law matter. Her fees were high, and her performance was very poor.
In my case, my husband had liquidated our assets prior to the divorce, and after the divorce, hid and liquidated his assets. His support arrearages were at astronomical figures. In court, she asked my ex-husband and I to step out of the court room for the attorneys to speak privately with the judge. My case dragged on and on without action from her and without resolution. She did not return phone calls or respond to emails in a reasonable amount of time. She had constant excuses about her personal life interfering with her work. She filed a notice of withdrawal from my case (which I did not argue about).
Two years later, when I ordered a copy of the court reporter's transcripts, I read that she had asked the judge to reduce un-modifiable alimony, so that he could "afford" to pay his arrearages on child support.
This was great representation... for my ex-husband...
She took me to mediation and went to court for a hearing for my divorce after paying her $40,000.00. Wen went in front of the judge wothers Keran Cole and the judge didn't sign of on my divorce because Stefani didn't complete my timesharing to get my girls.. So insisted all my time with mediation and all my heating.
