Child Support
Nicole was excellent during the process. i understood everything that was going on and made decisions based off of principles and knew we would lose. But she did her job better then any other attorney that I had hired before. Once in court she switched into high gear and made me believe I would had won if not for the judge being completely one sided. Would hire her for anything in the future. She is worth the money!

Definitely Recommend
Nicole is straight forward. I have (unfortunately) been back to court several times with my ex and every lawyer I had before Nicole seemed to just want to settle and I kept losing. With Nicole I have gained more time with my kids and residency for education. She has always been blunt with me and told me when I'm asking for things that are not realistic. She walked me through the process and I would recommend her to anyone!

Very pleased
Nicole went above and beyond. She was my lawyer for a child custody case. She was always straight forward and kept me in the loop the whole time. Always seemed very focused and on point during prep and during court. Very good at guiding me through the process and was able to get me a positive outcome in my case.

An awesome Divorce Attorney
Ms. Fisher was extremely knowledgeable, prepared and confident throughout my entire divorce proceedings and trial. During trial she ruled the courtroom. I felt totally confident and at ease having her representation in the courtroom. I was thoroughly pleased with her professionalism and deameanor. I have referred her to several friends who were thoroughly pleased with her services and representation.

Top Notch Lawyer
Nicole was great. I had a very hard and somewhat tricky child custody situation. She worked hard and was always up front and honest about what was going on with my case. She tells it how it is and presents real solutions to problems that arise. She worked very hard on my case and still has been there for me as a client when I have had questions. She was very prepared and always had answers and solutions to anything that would arise, and in my case a lot did arise. Being a male it was great to have someone to stick up for me in a custody case, in fact Nicole showed no backing down from the other side. This was a huge help and plus in getting me more time with my son than most men have. Great lawyer and very fierce in fighting for her clients...

Hire your best advocate!
Nicole was my life saver. I spent over $10K with another attorney who wasn't timely to respond to my e-mails, didn't advise me when I needed it, and made me feel like I'd hired a scrivener with no real skills. My experience with Nicole was 180 degrees different. Nicole was an advocate for me. Whereas I felt like my previous attorney was annoyed that I would bother her with my questions (while she was overcharging me), Nicole would not only answer my questions with sound legal advice, but she was also strategic. She told me what my options were, but also told me what she thought would lead to the best possible outcome in my situation, even if she knew I didn't want to hear it. And she was right! My previous attorney made me feel like I was alone on an island, Nicole made me feel like we were in it together and that my success was hers and vice versa. She is cordial with opposing counsel, as a good attorney should be, but she wasn't afraid to call someone out if they'd unreasonably delayed in getting something done. I've recommended and referred Nicole over a dozen clients. I know I'll need her help again in a few years when we change our custody plan, and she is absolutely the first person I'll call.

Excellent Choice for Family Attorney
Nicole and her staff were helpful and kept me informed every step of our legal process. Nicole continued to provide legal resources and advice even after our case was closed. I would use her again and I would recommend her services in a heartbeat to anyone needing legal assistance in a family situation as she goes above and beyond for her clients.

Highly Professional and Fights for her clients
I would recommend Miss Fisher and her entire law firm to anyone and everyone!!! I reached out to Miss Fisher's law firm on short notice and she and her staff worked extremely long hours (tirelessly) organizing and putting together my case. They were prompt with all aspects of the case and my case was huge and had years of issues involved. Miss Fisher exceeded all expectations and was an avid listener and carries herself confidently in the court room. As a matter of fact I need to mention her staff as well. Tika, Miss Sader, and Mrs Craft whom also work in the office were caring and professional and all worked very hard to construct and organize my case even outside of the office. So if you are in need of a great legal team, look no further than the law offices of Nicole Fisher. I highly, highly recommend!!!!

Nicole is the only person I would trust to handle any family law situation.
This girl can fight! I almost felt bad for my ex-husband, and he's a lawyer himself. She's smart, savvy and this is her game! Let's just say heads were spinning after her points were made. You just have to trust her and see the process through. Nicole got me a pretty generous result that truly saved my life. The work she did allowed me to get back on my feet and provide for kids. I'm eternally grateful for Nicole!

Modification of Parenting Plan
Difficult modification of parenting plan. I had two attorneys prior to finding Nicole. She was always prompt in her responses, extremely efficient in the time I was billed, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of the case. Thank you Nicole!

Wonderful attorney!
Nicole and the rest of Fisher Law were wonderful to work with during my custody case. What normally would have been a huge headache went very smoothly with little stress on my end. Nicole provided clear, realistic expectations and was very upfront and approachable throughout my case. She and her paralegal were always more than willing to answer any questions I had, and were very diligent in keeping me informed and keeping the case moving. I would highly recommend Nicole to any of my family and friends in need of an attorney!

I would RECOMMEND this lawyer in a heartbeat!!
Nicole is a very passionate lawyer who is willing to go above and beyond to represent her clients well. I had such a great experience working with Nicole and her staff, that it made this difficult time rewarding. They care about you as an individual and it shows! There were numerous times I would show up to the office in tears, she would wipe them away with words of encouragement and a plan of action. Nicole is a heartfelt lawyer who delivers in the courtroom as well… She gets results!

Outstanding Professionalism and Results
Nicole and team were extremely knowledgeable regarding family law; specifically motions to modify, child support and state laws regarding parenting plans. Their work provided great value, in that the case matters were resolved as quickly as possible and without unnecessary fees or services. She was an incredible resource, advocating for our case and rights and with a level head and and eye on the desired outcomes at hand. I would recommend her and have done so for several friends/family members. Nicole's work resulted in a HUGE home run for us, personally.

Nicole is awesome!!
I was going through a divorce to an abusive person; Nicole stood up to him and his attorney resulting in me getting sole custody of my child. She's very busy but I never once felt like I was being rushed or that she didn't have time for me. I've referred her to many of my friends and they all love her and are happy with their outcomes.

Great to work with
Nicole has been handling legal work for me for the last two years. She is thorough and well-versed in her profession. She's responsive and easy to work with because she is upfront and clear about the case and expectations. Nicole is professional without being distanced. Her staff are a pleasure to work with and in general, my experiences with her office have been very positive.

I had to do all the work.
Fischer law came highly recommended. The only part of this firm that actually do any work would be the paralegals. Nicole is a horrible person who somehow managed to get my parenting time cut in half. The cherry on top, she was also able to triple my child support. She had an attitude all of the 2 times in a year and half she bothered to talk to me. I still don't understand how a lawyer can charge so much and do absolutely nothing. I had negotiate everything on my own and pay her for my ability to try and get fair treatment from the courts and my ex-wifes lawyer. Why would a lawyer question your motives for wanting more time with your child. I seriously doubt she knew all the facts to my case. She also couldn't get me off the phone fast enough, which is probably why she didn't know much about my case. In my 43 years I have never seen anyone as bad or incompetent at there job as Nicole Fischer. I wouldn't recommend her to my worst enemy, she has no heart.
