The best attorney I know!
Nikki is one of the best Immigration, Family and Criminal Attorneys around. I hired her four years ago for a criminal case and she won the case after three other attorneys were unable to succeed.

Nikki is Awesome!!!
I hired Nikki in 2016 for her services in divorce/child custody and she has done an amazing job. She is very hard working and is very very thorough with every important detail of my case. She has been very caring about my concerns and worries throughout the process and she has covered areas of great importance that I had no idea I needed. It’s very comforting to know that my Nikki has my and my children’s best interests at heart. Nikki has and continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. I am so great full for her and I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. I 110% recommend Nikki to anyone who is going through a divorce/child custody.

I contacted (Nikki) for a consultation and I was VERY impressed by her level of enthusiasm. I have had contact with two previous attorney's and I (cannot) say that I was happy with their services [one of them being a former fam. law judge :(]. However, Nikki and her staff were very helpful, supportive and easy to work with! From this point on......Nikki and her staff are my first choice and will continue to be the group that represents me for any legal needs that may arise! Keep up the good work, Nikki & Staff!!

Great Client Relations
When we hired Nikki, we had no idea the 4 year battle we were about to face. I could not have asked for a better attorney to partner with us as we jumped hoops and encountered unexpected obstacles. Gratefully, though, Nikki was persistent and fought on our behalf every step of the way. She listened to our desires, defended our values and supported us in more ways than we even knew we were going to need. If you need someone to be your voice, than Nikki is your attorney.

Trustworthy Attorney
I hired Nikki to handle my brothers case, we went through 3 attorneys during his process, she was the last one to settle all of his criminal cases in 3 different county's and got him the deal every other attorney was unable to do. She answered all of our questions and went to visit my brother in jail on a weekly basis. I recommend her highly.
