Where do I even begin? This is going to be a pretty long review, as there's so much good to say about this amazing attorney, Nadia Pazos. However, if all you'll end up reading is only this first paragraph, then know this - Nadia truly cares, and Nadia is an extremely knowledgeable, and experienced family law attorney, who will fight tooth-and-nail to get her clients the best possible outcome!
A little background - I am a very analytical individual, who likes to always be prepared. So, naturally I spent many hours compiling a list of who I thought would be the best attorney to help me with my case. I read as many attorneys’ profiles and reviews, as I could find. Finally, I was down to a list of about 20…then 10…and then 5. Nadia’s online presence (profiles, ratings, reviews, website, etc.) was near perfection. However, I still wanted to meet my top 5 attorneys in person, before I made my final decision of which one to hire. I purposely met Nadia last, and when I explained to her that she is not the only attorney I'm having a consultation with, her response was simply, "I think you'll quickly notice that we are a little different than most." Having met with each of the 5 attorneys, Nadia’s statement couldn’t be any more accurate. The difference was clear - instead of looking at an individual and seeing only a potential new client and billable hours, Nadia looks at an individual and sees a person in need of help, an individual who is about to embark on what likely will be one of the most difficult journeys of their life.
The entire divorce process was very smooth, with Nadia and the rest of her team keeping me updated on the status of each and every step along the way. Whenever I had questions (and I had lots, and lots of questions), I would always receive a very quick, detailed response. My one and only area of concern was that she might be a little too nice, and that she will not be “aggressive” enough during the case. However, when it came to standing her ground and being tough, Nadia did exactly that! The main difference was - she did it with reason, respect, confidence and a smile on her face! I will never forget a moment at mediation, when the ex-spouse and the opposing attorney, were on the verge of yelling across the table, with the hopes of us giving-in to one of their requests. Nadia proceeded to slowly, calmly, but very firmly explain to the opposition why their request was not going to be granted. Nadia provided her supporting evidence to prove her stance, and she did it all while keeping a smile for most of the time. What a class act! Pure professionalism!
The privilege of having Nadia in my corner, during what turned out to be the most difficult time of my life, was life-changing! I can’t even imagine what would have happened, had I not had such a good, caring attorney by my side! Having gone through my divorce case, I can now say with complete honesty, that hiring the right attorney will be the single most important decision of your family law case. Nadia Pazos IS that “right attorney”!
Nadia, your passion for family law, and your passion for helping people during some of their toughest times, is nothing short of inspiring! When I first asked you about how difficult it must be for you to have to deal with so much negativity, since most divorce cases won't exactly be pleasant, you gave me a very simple answer, "I don't focus on the process, but rather on the happy, fresh start that we are able to help our clients reach. I love what I do!” I now know what you meant by that. You were referring to moments precisely such as this one - a moment when I can think back at my divorce case, and feel only pure gratitude! Pure gratitude for having you in my corner, guiding me to “the light at the end of the tunnel”. You are a true inspiration to the family law community, and I am honoured to be able to say that I was represented by Nadia Pazos! Thank You, Nadia!!! I will forever be grateful!!!
