Excellent attorney
We hired Nicole for a family member, and she and her paralegal, Yohanna, were outstanding.! They were so diligent and got the matter settled with great results. I would recommend Nicole and her firm to anyone wanting someone who will fight for you and see things through to the end. Her flat fee made it less worrisome throughout the process since we knew upfront there would be no hidden costs. Much thanks to Nicole and Yohanna for helping get our lives back on track again.

I would recommend
I came into Nicole's office with not much time. I spoke with a few lawyers in the area and was not liking my options. I had an order of protection coming before the Judge in just a few days. She listened to my whole story. Came up with what I thought was a good plan. Every other person I spoke to wanted to fight against the claim, which I think would have caused more back and forth and more court time. We agreed on a plan of action. I was happy with the outcome. I then needed to retain her services for a divorce. I liked the way she presented my options. Told me when she thought i was making a good or bad decision, and backed me up on what path I wanted to take. I really appreciated her thought process and experience. I would recommend Nicole Sartori for representation.

I had been fighting with the State for 5 years to get my license back! I had failed my first hearing and was too scared to try again until I hired Nicole because I heard she was the best in the area! It's true! She is a no-nonsense, get the job done attorney! Straightforward, honest and meticulous to details. She and her staff told me every step of the way what to expect and I felt completely comfortable with the hearing process the second time around. I cannot thank this office enough for helping me get my life back and get driving again after 7 LONG years!!! Worth every penny! If you're serious about getting your license back, give her a call today. Very satisfied customer here!

Couldn't of been easier.
Nicole was great everything she said from the first day we talked turned out exactly like she explained. She had to travel about 2 hours round trip to court for me around 5 times and never raised her fee. Nicole made everything go smooth and took the worrying out of it. I would highly recommend her.

Worth Every Penny!
I am so thankful I hired Nicole to be my attorney for a recent speeding ticket. My violation was considered a misdemeanor, and Nicole got it down to a minor violation, with court supervision, and a minimal fine. I didn't even have to stand before the judge, Nicole handled everything quickly and I received the best possible outcome for my situation. I will definitely be recommending her to others.

Nicole Sartori - personal attorney of choice
As a VP, I have worked with attorneys in business for my entire career. When several items on my personal life that required legal representation, I had hired Nicole Sartori. Her work was outstanding. In addition to being an excellent communicator, her ability to resolve my legal issues with favorable outcomes was 100% on target. I highly recommend Ms. Sartori for your legal work.

Need a good lawyer...choose Nicole Sartori!
I hired Nicole to represent me in getting my license back. I lost them back in 2010 for a DUI. I completed all of the requirements that was given to me in sentencing and went to a formal hearing to try to get them back. The SOS denied me over and over again for inconsistencies during my hearings. I was denied four different times for the same reason and thought to myself it's time to get a lawyer. I hired Nicole and she took my case and ran with it. She was very knowledgeable of what she was doing and made it very simple for me. She successfully got me a RDP on our first attempt. We just recently got full driving privileges back after my time was up on my RDP. I have already suggested Nicole to a few people looking for a lawyer and will continue to put her name out there if anyone were to ask. Nicole and her assistant, Yohana, treated me great and made the entire process very simple for me start to finish. Thank you both!

I would definitely recommend Nicole. My teenage son got a reckless driving ticket for squealing his truck tires in the school parking lot. Nicole got the charges reduced!

My adult child needed a criminal attorney, she was phenomenal, quick, tenacious! Nicole kept us informed, and was very true to her word! A great attorney!!!

Amazing Job
I would definitely recommend Nicole Sartori. She was very flexible, the fees were reasonable, and she did a major turnaround in my case. I was a little nervous at first being that the judge was a man and they seem to intimidate women but she stood her ground and fought my case with such confidence; even the judge had to give her acknowledgement. She did an amazing job and I am forever grateful. Thanks again.

A fantastic job!
Did a great job seeing that my case received the best possible outcome regardless of the time required. She knew every aspect of my case from the very start until it was over and I always knew what could possibly happen and what was most likely to happen. Would recommend her to everyone. Went the extra mile for me and I certainly appreciate it!

Very patient and understanding of my questions!
She took the time to respond to all of my emails over something as simple as a speeding ticket and traffic court. I was very nervous about my court appearance. She was very pleasant in court and took the time afterwards to stand in line with me while I paid my fine. Looking forward to using her for a house closing in the future.

An attorney who gets good results and quick!
I was referred to Nicole by a highly esteemed lawyer for a domestic battery case. I was told I could not return home until the case was over. I being a father was devastated by the thought of not being able to see my kids for what might have been months! On my first call to Nicole she put my mind at ease and within a week I was back at home! She got me the best possible result for my case and I will be sure to recommend her to anyone I know who needs a lawyer.

Highly Recommended
Nicole was very quick, efficient and got the best possible outcome for my case. I was kept informed about what the steps and the timelines it would take to get there. Nicole is extremely professional and I highly recommend her.

Help! I need my child support modified, fast!
Nicole is very good about keeping you informed. Whether it's a phone call from her or one of the other staff member, someone is going to call you. Nicole helped me with a Child Support modification that I wasn't going to dare and try to do on my own. Her rates were fare and she was very willing to work with me on that. If you're looking for someone that is trustworthy and not going to move like molasses to get the job done, then Nicole is who you are looking for!

Great results!!
Got a BAD speeding ticket over Easter weekend like a dummy trying to rush to go see family and running late. As a CDL holder I could have lost my job. Nicole was able to turn my horrible traffic ticket into something very minor!! Very impressed with her results.
Posted by Ralph | April 30, 2014
Truck drivers CDL!
Not only was she responsive to my calls, she was the only one to get back to me. I called 4 others that day out of the yellow pages. The results were amazing! Quite a professional attorney!! I would recommend her anytime!!
