Nicole got my federal case assigned to her and from the very first day in bond hearing she ripped the prosecutiona and agents to pieces - not with just being aggressive bu by being logical , quick and very cutting. i was denied bond at first do to my own actions but 87 days in federal custody she got me out. She got one of my counts waived and i did the leg monitor for 8 months awaiting sentencing in which she guided me through with everything I needed to get a lighter sentence. In the court before the judge she spoke more eloquently than anyone in the room and it was her efforts and passion that got me probation - i owe her my new life.

I was on probation and got arrested out of town. I had an attorney at the time' who told me I would go to prison for 2 to 4 years for Revoke of Probation. I found Ms DeBorde who told me that she would fight all the way to make sure this didn't happen. I hired her and in the end she did just what she said. I'm very greatful that we have people on this earth that care about others the way Ms DeBorde does. She is an honest straight forward super Attorney . Thank You Ms DeBorde.

Nicole goes above and beyond the “call of duty” both in and out of the court room. Her statement to us when my husband and I hired her was that she would treat us like her family. She most certainly has done that. It has been almost 5 years since adjudication and she has continued to help us with any need that may arise. In this world of uncertainty, there is no one else I would rather have as our counsel than Nicole DeBorde. She truly is an anomaly and has no equal.

Nicole and I met in law school. Even then I knew she would make a great name for herself but her skill, natural ability to try cases, and legal creativity have surpassed what I could have expected. She is truly a national player in the criminal defense world and I endorse her with no hesitation.
