Nancy took care of a very difficult situation like the expert she is! Divorce and restraining handled perfectly. Communication was constant and the staff is very responsive. Took care of everything, including sending me to an excellent therapist. Thank you!

Restraining Order Assitance
I hired Ms. Harrison to help me with a restraining order. She did a excellent job. She explained the process to me and made me very comfortable with a difficult situation. She was always available to answer my questions. During the trial she was detailed and logical in her presentation to the judge. She did a fantastic job.

Nancy Harrison is amazing!
I am so grateful to find Nancy. She was so attentive and thorough throughout my case which was a difficult one and years long I might add. I am so thankful for her helping me with the difficulties especially regarding custody. There was severe Parental Alienation with my divorce and Nancy is a big reason I have a relationship with my children. She worked so hard for me to bring out the big picture in court and I know she would do the same for anyone that hires her. Thank you again Nancy for all of your help.

Nancy Harrison
5 stars for sure! We never had to wait on a call back or email. Nancy and her staff were very knowledgeable and down to earth. I respected their promptness and always felt that my wants and needs were important to them. In the courtroom I was glad that Nancy was by my side.

I most strongly recommend this attorney for ANY family matter-especially divorce, custody issues, or alimony issues.
I hired Ms. Harrison to represent me in my divorce proceedings after interviewing two other attorneys and also after she was recommended to me by another attorney that dealt with business affairs and taxes. She handled my case in a superb and professional manner that greatly exceeded my expectations. She knows the law in great detail and kept me abreast of all the motions and proceedings throughout my case. She effectively negotiated a fair settlement on my behalf before and during the mediation thereby eliminating the possibility of going to trial. Even though each divorce case is different, mine was especially complicated due to the unique assets involved, government retirement payments, business interests, out of state considerations, taxes, and debt management considerations. Ms. Harrison handled all of those issues in such a thorough manner that I felt that all of my interests were addressed, protected, and taken care of. In fact, I felt that due to her thorough understanding of my position in this matter, that we were in a position of distinct advantage throughout the entire conduct of my case. As hard as she work for me on my behalf in this case, I felt that the professional fees that I paid were more than reasonable and fair. I most strongly recommend that if you are in need of an attorney for services in this area, that you strongly consider Ms. Harrison for representation.

A GREAT Attorney
I was in need of a litigator who would give me a secure feeling that everything would be alright. Until I hired Ms. Harrison I was in downright despair of what be in my future. She gave me a great deal but more importantly she took a 12 year dispute and made it disappear from my life in short order. Her insight of possible pitfalls, and ability to work with me through the countless questions I had truly made this legal journey not so stressful. She took my concerns off the table and made the time spent very positive for me, giving me hope of a brighter tomorrow. I won't ever step into a courtroom again without Ms. Harrison by my side.

Highly Recommend
Divorce is a challenging process. Nancy has a talent for getting to the root of the matter and not wasting time or money. She is a true professional. She takes the time to understand concerns and desired outcomes and stays focused, always. She made me feel comfortable through the legal process by outlining specific next steps and being very accessible. She is very organized and prepared for court. She is a wonderful partner. I highly recommend her.

Commander and Chief
At a time in life when you need "excellence" on an "unknown" path, you want only the best for yourself. My recent separation and divorce felt much like a "roller coaster" ride emotionally and financially; N. Harrison was knowledgeable, confident and always led the path to success, positive outcome and stability. Ms. Harrison and her legal staff are diigent, caring, supportive and always positive and cheerful; each dynamic being crucial to ones health and wellness through a challenging time such as a divorce. I recommend Ms. Harrison 100% and I admit to being a Type-A personality, requiring a legal team that pays attention to details while being approachable and sensitive to your needs; Ms. Harrison and her legal team are all of this and more. I am very grateful for the "new beginning" Ms. Harrison has so carefully facilitated. Thank you to her and her delightful team.

Nancy Harrison, Esq
Nancy Harrison has been a legal counsel, for me, since August 2008. She has been my attorney for the past three years in a very difficult case. It is obvious how committed she is to the practice of law. Nancy is always very organized, prepared for court, and makes you feel comfortable through the legal process. She is very accessible. She takes time to hear your questions and concerns. I always felt very prepared for each and every legal proceeding. I would highly recommend Nancy Harrison as legal counsel.

I had a very complicated divorce that involves Colorado, Georgia and Florida. I needed to have 3 lawyers; one for each state. Nancy practically did the job of all the lawyers herself and the jurisdiction of my divorce was in Georgia. She by far out-shined my other lawyers! She was extremely organized, proactive, assertive, she communicated VERY well with me and she knows her stuff extremely well! She definitely went above and beyond what I paid her for. I could not have asked or even have imagined anything better than her as my lawyer. I will forever be grateful for all she did for me and my boys!

Outstanding in every way
Ms. Harrison handled my divorce in 2012. From our first meeting, Ms. Harrison was well organized, knowledgeable and forthright. She laid out my options in a matter-of-fact style, informing me of possible scenarios without any histrionics. In every meeting I had with her, Ms. Harrison showed up on-time and well-prepared. It's an age-old adage that good people know good people. My case required a vocational evaluation and a social investigation -- for both, Ms. Harrison suggested excellent resources who handled their respective areas very, very well. The mediator Ms. Harrison recommended was also excellent, getting both sides to "yes" in the allotted timeframe. In all, I felt very well represented by Ms. Harrison, and if I have any other family law needs in the future, I will contact her without reservation.

Trustworthy, Dependable and Knowledgeable - Highly recommend
Trustworthy, Dependable and Knowledgeable - Highly recommend I had a very complicated divorce with many child custody issues. Nancy was professional, compassionate, experienced and knowledgeable. She guided me with the specific steps I needed to take to secure my children's well being and safety. She was available for me and my children through each and ever step. Anytime I had a question or was unclear about a process Nancy promptly answered my calls making sure I had a clear understanding of each step and answers to all my questions. My divorce was finalized and my custody issues were resolved to my complete satisfaction. I highly recommend Ms. Harrison (Nancy).

My new Best Friend
I found Nancy through a colleague of hers she came so highly recommended. I wasn't disappointed. It seemed like a perfect fit. Her personality and strength at my lowest point in life up to that moment was what I needed. Someone to care about me and my troubles and a solution. My divorce was never final. From the time we met we started the proceedings. My spouse had committed a terrible act, arson, and I needed help to get away an not dragged into a place I didn't want to be. She took charge, very professional, very strong, yet very caring about me an my unusual circumstances. I had a spouse in the hospital, then jail, he moved out to his sisters and died suddenly of heart failure. Nancy was at my house letting me sob on her shoulder almost as soon as I hung up from the call telling me he had passed. I will always love her for that compassion. She's a take charge person and gets answers as soon as you ask them. I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me through everything including a divorce. I became a widow, the divorce was never finalized. But she still remained a person I heavily relied upon for months after.

Personalized Experience
Nancy exceeded all my expectations as the attorney for my divorce. What I appreciated most about her practice is the personalized experience I received. I've worked with large firms before that make it difficult to get in touch with your attorney, or firms where your case is passed from attorney to attorney. With Nancy's small but efficient practice, I always had access to her (even though I lived overseas with a 13 hour time-zone difference) and I took comfort in knowing that she would be the attorney guiding my case through to completion. I enthusiastically recommend her to others.

Excellent Caring Attorney
I have relied on the office of Nancy Harrison for over a year to fight a custody battle taking place in the state of Florida while I am living in Michigan. I have been provided excellent legal advice from a staff that is caring and fights for you.

Nancy is the only lawyer I'll ever use
Nancy has been my savior in all of my legal matters. She is a very thorough and professional lawyer and I would not trust anyone else except her. Even though I'm currently deployed to Afghanistan she makes time to keep me up to date on everything that is going on with my case. I would only recommend her to anyone that needed legal services.
