She will FIGHT HARD For You!
Nancy handled my daughter’s divorce and has done an incredible job. I’ve never seen so much dedication in the legal field as I’ve seen through her and her wonderful paralegal Vanessa. She is extremely reasonable on pricing and even if she charged double, I don’t think we would’ve found anyone that cared as much for our family and our situation as she does!

Great hands on services
Nancy bends over backwards to provide quality and affordable legal services. I have used her for 2 cases in past 15 years, each with much success. She treats me with respect and works with me on payments. I will always use her when possible!

Incredible Attorney
I have been thru SEVERAL attorneys during my divorce & Nancy has been amazing. She really cares & has done more for me than any other attorney at a fraction of the cost. Divorce is awful, but it is so reassuring to have the support & defense of a persistent, strong advocate fighting for you when you feel powerless. My only regret is not meeting her earlier in this process. I cannot say enough wonderful things about my gratefulness for what she has done for me.

I was referred to Nancy from a good friend that had used her to obtain and divorce and for a probate case. Nancy was very helpful and was able to close the cases in relatively quick amount of time. Her fees were reasonable and she was always available to speak to by telephone and I could contact her by email even on weekends. I would hire her again for any legal issue.
