About Nahid

Learn Nahid’s areas of practice.

I was born and raised in Sudan, where one of the dominant cultural values is collectivism. For almost three decades, I witnessed how an individual would care for another by putting his or her own needs last. This culture has formed my values and beliefs and significantly added to who I am today. At a young age, I learned how to be supportive and giving in a great sense of compassion. Thinking about the other has helped me in building and maintaining a high sense of integrity and advocating for justice and respecting others. The sense of caring for a community has always encouraged me to act and react for the benefit of all.

Passionate, intelligent, & knowledgeable
I was lost since my husband of 16 years told me we were getting divorced. That was in January of 2013. By February of 2015 I had gone thru four other lawyers none of whom seemed to understand my situation. Nahid understood my situation right away, since I hired her in Feb 2015 she worked with unflagging energy toward a positive resolution to my divorce. Nahid has years of experience. She understood how to translate my needs into legal action. She got amazing results from my abusive husband and his legal team. From the first time I met her, she took my situation seriously, put my priorities (custody issues) first and was able to bring about a settlement larger than I had dared to hope, plus she was awarded attorney fees for her work on my behalf. She is honest and candid. She coached well for the ordeal of going to trial. She helped me find the confidence in myself that I needed to break out of the role of abused wife and show everyone I can be a good mother and wage earner. Nahid was in touch with me throughout the entire process. She met me on the weekends and took many calls from me during the evenings because she knew I worked all day and could not call or meet M-F from 9 to 5. She never complained about the unusual hours and was always enthusiastic about meeting me and getting things done. Nahid's personal experience with the international banking system proved to be of huge importance in my situation. She speaks several languages. She is sophisticated, well-spoken, writes very well and was never late. She brings a shrewd intelligence to her work that allows her to focus on the essential questions. She is persistent and detail oriented. She is driven to succeed. Nahid is a fantastic lawyer. She believed in me and was able to share my point of view in court. I am so lucky she was my lawyer during my divorce and will always be my lawyer. I cannot thank her enough.

Amazing
I literally went through 3 attorneys before doing research and after meeting once with NAHID, she understood my case better then my last attorney who had my case for over one year. She is a skilled lawyer and a true advocate for her clients in the areas of divorce, child support, and child custody. her knowledge of the law is impressive, and that accomplishment is matched by her passion for putting his knowledge of the law to good practical use for his clients. Nahid helped me settle my highly contested custody/relocation case. She battled tirelessly to help me and my young child. She is extremely knowledgeable and very articulate. NAHID kept me calm during high stress, coached me through the process, and always provided a sense of urgency to my case. I never felt she was too busy to answer my calls or questions. She truly care about clients and it shows. I learned a lot from Nahid and I highly recommend her to anyone needing a smart, caring and respected attorney. I don't know what else to say, except that I trust, respect, and am forever thankful for the outstanding legal representation Nahid provided me with. I will personally continue to use Nahid's services and recommend her to anyone. Again, Nahid, I want to thank you for all that you have done for my family and I, and will continue to do. THANK YOU.

Endorse Nahid
I found Nahid Abuelhassan after my husband left me and my child high and dry when he was making 6 figures of income a year. Nahid was not only my attorney who advocated for my rights and the rights of my child, but she was also a best person to connect with for the rest of my life. She communicated with me via e-mails and texts rather than by mail, which was so convenient for me to reply to her right away. She made herself available at times where I could not come to her office by coming to me at my residence. She responded to my inquiries right away without needing me to send follow-up messages. She showed me that she has passion for her work and treated me with great respect. I would highly recommend Nahid if you need an attorney who would be there for you against all odds.

Knows her stuff and works hard
Nahid knew exactly how to handle the issue I brought to her and she didn't fiddle around. She got us into court quickly (and it was the holidays) and found ways to keep her costs down. I would ask her for help in future if I needed it.

Excellent Service
I found Nahid after my first lawyer stopped communicating. When I spoke with Nahid and let her know what my situation was she immediately started correcting the mess my 1st lawyer had left me in. She kept me very well informed through email rather than mail which is great as you can reply to email with questions. She has passion for her work and treats others with respect and dignity. I would highly recomend Nahid to anyone that finds themselves in need of a attourney.

I highly recommend Nahid
I am a client and I am extremely satisfied about the quality of representation and advice Nahid has provided me. I have been in a very complex divorce case. Nahid has always been easy to reach, fast responses to my questions and overall a great lawyer. She has done a great job standing up and walks the extra mile to achieve the best goals. As a client that went through a messy divorce case, Nahid knew how to speed it up, protect my position and defend me. Nahid is very knowledgeable and knows what she is doing. I highly recommend and endorse her.

Professional
I highly recommend Nahid Abuelhassan to anyone needing legal assistance. I found her to be very knowledgeable and hard working, as well as offering very reasonable fees. She was so patient in guiding me through the legal process in my appeal case. She kept me updated and always had my best interests in mind.

Would not recommend!!
She took my money and told me it would take a year to get me situated. Every time I tried to get in contact with her I would get dry responses and sent straight to voicemail. When I asked why she said she didn’t want to work with me anymore. I highly suggest you use your money to find someone else! I basically had to do everything on my own.

Response from Nahid Abuelhassan May 22, 2021
The person who posted this review is NOT my client. She is a nosy sister who wanted to know everything about her brother’s case telling me how to do my job. I ended up blocking her phone number and informing my client of the same. My client is happy with my decision.
