Jessa, Nicholson was an Amazing lawyer!! She was hardworking and extremely dedicated. I was fortunate enough to receive her as a referral by a larger firm who thought she was the best to handle my child custody case. I not only won, but gained more than expected. Honest &professional.

Jessa is amazing. My family called her office when I caught my last case, and she was willing to come and visit me in the jail. I was accused of multiple charges, distribution, a shooting, and also facing revocation for violating my probation. Jessa fought for me the entire way, including my trial, where I was found NOT GUILTY! My revocation was dropped for an ATR of time served and now I'm back in the world where I belong. If I ever catch another case, Jessa is going to be my first call.

Jessa is wonderful! I trust her completely! I have a great deal of respect for her, just like she treats me. No matter what the situation is, I know she's fighting for me till the end!

Attorney Nicholson is a creative and aggressive advocate with a well-deserved reputation for innovation and success. Her thorough knowledge of trial practice and comfort in front of jurors makes her an exceptional trial lawyer. If I or one of my sons were accused of a crime, she'd be the one I'd call.
