Custody
If you're looking for an honest attorney, that will fight for you and treat your case like it's his only case, then hire Nick. He truly is a good lawyer and an even better person!

Amazing find, efficient lawyer, super helpful
Nick has represented me twice so far over the years, his team helped find things my ex-husband hid from the courts during our discovery. Justice was served for my daughter and myself, if I ever get divorced again i';ll be using Mr. Nusplh his assistant Amanda is also amazing, thank you both.

BEST LAWYER EVER!!!!
Nick did amazing! I needed him on a dime and he was there and I got my son back immediately after he was being held from me unlawfully. Mistakenly I used a crook of an attorney before him and she did absolutely nothing for me! Nick did more for me and didn’t even charge me a fourth of what the other lawyer charged me! Also he has the most amazing paralegal Amanda, she was there when I was scared and panicky to make sure I was okay and to assure me that everything was gonna be okay!

A really good lawyer
My wife and I have used Nick for several years. He is in Allen, TX and we have since moved to Houston but we still only use Nick. Very professional, kind, helpful and knowledgeable. Carl and Judy

Excellent Firm
Highly recommend Nick, he modified a custody order that a previous attorney failed to modify in my favor. The engagement was seamless and his firm was incredibly accommodating. His paralegal was also engaged through the whole process and kept me updated with critical information. Highly recommend his firm.

Estate Planning
Nick and his team have done a great job making estate planning as simple as possible. They also guided me through the process of probating my dad's will with minimal confusion and frustration. Highly recommended.

Probate work
Did not have to worry about probate items or schedules. Nick set up everything from court dates to changing the house title.

Accessible, friendly and professional
Nick recently helped my wife and I with preparing will and power of attorney documents, something I'd been putting off. The entire experience was great, and even enjoyable discounting the somewhat grim nature of the documents we were preparing. Nick went out of his way to make himself accessible for future changes to the documents. I feel like Nick listened and adapted to my needs, something I can't say of other attorneys I've worked with.

Divorce Sucks, Nick Rocks
Nick Nuspl is a friend of my father's. When my husband and I decided to divorce after nearly 10 years of marriage, my dad recommended Nick. My ex-husband and I had a lot of assets, and Nick helped me manouver through the legalities of asset division as well as protecting me from being taken advantage of during a very emotional time. I highly recommend him.

He redeemed my faith in lawyers.
I highly recommend Mr. Nuspl as your lawyer. He is attentive, supportive, professional, has a wealth of experience, gives sound advice, is super sharp as a litigator, and doesn’t "nickel and dime" you to death. Additionally, his staff is friendly, supportive and highly professional which complement him perfectly. Prior to retaining Mr. Nuspl, I used two other lawyers during a very difficult and time-consuming divorce case. He managed to settle the case and any incidents that popped up afterward quickly and favorably.

Spectacular Attorney
Nick has represented me in two legal issues. The first was a custody case back in 2014. Nick was supportive, tentative, and diligent in the case work with a outcome that was favorable to our side. The second was a debt issue for a private student loan that is well over 7 years old. This company had sent documents to my home and filed with the court. I reached out to Nick mid day on a Monday and by early afternoon Tuesday he had the case dismissed (plaintiff filed a nonsuit). I cannot say enough great things about Nick! I reach out to him for all of my legal needs. He is an outstanding attorney who goes above and beyond every time! I recommend him to everyone I know.

Great example of Professionalism & Ethical service
I had been struggling settling with the other party's insurance claim over a car settlement. I came to Mr. Nuspl and he effectively handled my settlement. He always kept me updated with the case and any other news pertaining to it. No matter how difficult the other party was, Mr. Nuspl negotiated and delivered what was rightfully claimed regarding my case.

Simply the Best
Nick was a God-send to me. I had left my abusive, cheating husband and was seeking a divorce and primary custody of our small child. I left with virtually nothing and was starting over so did not have much money for legal fees. I found a different lawyer initially, and she nickel-and-dimed me with little results. When I found Nick, I was deep in debt and hanging by a thread. He truly cared and was warm and a pleasure to work with – a breath of fresh air! I found him to be honest, professional, knowledgeable, aggressive when needed, and a great mediator. He is genuine and a man of integrity. As he says, “We wear the white hat”. He got my entire case wrapped up as quickly as possible for a mere fraction of what I paid my first lawyer for simply temporary orders. If anything, he actually under-charged me! And most importantly, I got primary custody (and a chunk of change)! Nick was everything I needed and wanted in a lawyer, and I could not have done it without him. Attorneys don’t come any better than Nick!!
