A wonderful lawyer to help you through the difficult divorce process
Nikki was amazing throughout my divorce. She was tough and ready to fight my ex in court if necessary, but was always very empathetic and understanding when I met with her, and respected my wishes. She always kept me informed and made the process as quick and painless as possible. I would recommend her to anyone getting a divorce.

Excellent Lawyer!!
Nikki Hudman was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was she able to defend us from an unjust accusation, her calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. My children and I are eternally grateful for her service and I hereby recommend Ms. Hudman and her excellent team without reservation.”

Top-notch Lawyer!
Bonnie Nicole (Nikki) Hudman was exactly what I wanted and needed in a divorce lawyer. So often, we hear about contentious divorces in which the focus seems to be making the opposing party as miserable as possible. I did not want my case to be like that. Sure, making a cheating spouse go through all kinds of hell would be enormously satisfying; but, after all, that approach only serves to make everyone miserable and runs up your legal fees. I wanted a lawyer who is smart, someone who pays extraordinary attention to the details, and a lawyer who is professional and completely ethical. Nikki fulfilled all those requirements. I never doubted her loyalty to me. I know she had plenty of other clients, but she made me feel as though my case was of the utmost importance. I tried to not call or email her unless I really needed to; but when I did, she was very prompt to respond. When my case went to mediation, I was ready to give into demands from the opposing counsel. She looked me square in the face and said she would not let me do that. She said that I deserved more. Now, eight months later, I'm so happy she did that. I suppose we could have gone to trial to fight for an even greater percentage of the marital property, but Nikki clearly explained the possible benefits and the likely added expense. She definitely had my best interest in mind rather than increasing her legal fees. In the end, I'm very pleased with the outcome. My case finished with a property division I'm happy with, legal fees that weren't too painful, and the knowledge that my lawyer did a top-notch job for me. Best of all, I walked away with my dignity. Can't say that for the other side! Just a note about Nikki's firm: Everyone that worked on my case was professional and courteous, especially Nikki's assistant. Every time I went to their office, I was treated with respect and kindness. I initially consulted with one of the partners. He suggested that I work with Nikki. He must have known she would be the perfect fit for my needs!

Excellent, knowledge and patient!
Ms. Hudman is an exceptional child custody attorney. She is patient and she really cared about the situation that she was given to handle. Most importantly, for me, she held her ground when I wanted to back down. She knows the law and what my rights are and encouraged me to accept what I was entitled to. The case is finished and I am still hearing her in my head when situations arise. She has made me a stronger more confident person. I am happy I found her and will definitely recommend her to others.

Outstanding Representation
I was very pleased with Nikki's representation. She kept me informed each step of the way and made sure I was aware of all my options. The way she explained everything made difficult information easy to understand. Child custody/support cases can be very emotional and she was professional and pragmatic throughout the process. Nikki was able to direct me and helped me make the best possible decisions. Being comfortable in a situation like this is difficult and it is important to be comfortable with your representation. Nikki did that for me and my family. I would highly recommend her to anyone that has to go through something like this.

Trustworthy and Honest Representation
Ms. Hudman took the worry out of my case because I knew she would look out for my best interest, as well as my children's best interest. I knew she would keep the emotional nature of my case in perspective. She validated the emotional investment I had in my case. I felt supported. Only because she is a mother, could she understand the depth of the importance of the case.
