Legal work done professionally & promptly
Mr Nighswander has represented me on four different occasions in a variety of matters. Each legal action was handled professionally with a minimum of my needing to be involved. I was kept advised each step of the way. All four actions were settled in my favor and only one of them had to go to court. The other three were settled in arbitration, which was suggested by Mr Nighswander, thereby saving me a good deal of money and not wasting the court's time. For me, Mr Nighswander did an exceptional job. I will continue to use his services when the need for legal representation arises.

Hardest Working Attorney
Nick Nighswander is one of the hardest working attorneys. I highly recommend him. I hired Nick to represent my father's estate when he died in a fire caused by a defective product. When the case concluded, it was reported as one of the largest personal injury settlements in KY at the time. I attribute this result to Nick's tenacity and work ethic. If you want someone to fight for you, then hire Nick.

Bankruptcy and Probate
Mr. Nighswander was very efficient in handling my late husband's and my bankruptcy proceedings. Also, after my husband's death he was able to get my bankruptcy payments reduced since my income had been reduced, by half. I respected his efficiency in the handling of my late husband's probate proceedings. He is a very professional attorney but also showed compassion for us/me during our appointments with him. He updated my will, power of attorney and other legal matters. I have highly recommended his legal services to numerous friends.

Nick is an excellent attorney. I couldn't be more pleased with his representing me and my family and the outcome as a result. I highly recommend Nick to anyone seeking an attorney that will aggressively fight for his client.

Nicholas Nighswander Review
My wife and I hired Mr. Nick Nighswander for our Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in 2007. Nick was very thorough and professional in walking us through all of our options and going through the entire process. This was a very stressful and embarrassing time for us especially during the beginning stages, we reached out to Nick almost daily regarding our case and he always contacted us that same day to answer our questions. Nick made a horrible situation for us much better. Three years after we completed all of our payments to the Trustee, we decided to sell our home and purchase a new home. During the sale of our current home the title company contacted us advising us that there was a lien on our property and without the lien being paid or cleared, we could not sell our home. We immediately contacted Nick, sending him the lien that was pending. He reviewed our file and seen that the lien in question was from a company that we had paid in full during our plan and they should have released the lien in May 2012, once the plan was discharged. He contacted the Attorney for the credit card company and explained our situation and was able to get the lien released that same day. Anything that would ever arise that would cause me to need an Attorney, Nicholas Nighswander is the only person I would call. Even knowing that he has his certain areas of expertise, I would still reach out to him for a reference because I thoroughly trust him.

I depend on Nick's insight and advice.
Nick has always been there for me and my family. He has helped us through tough times, helping to get up back on the road to success. The best word to describe Nick would be a Bull Dog. He goes right after the problem to get a quick resolution for his clients. He goes to battle for his clients and expect his clients to battle right there with him. I put my trust in Nick 100%. If you have tough decisions to make then or a tough situation you are going through then you want Nick in your corner. Thank you Nick for all you have done for me and my family.
