  • Edward Murray Robinson

    Nancy Kardon has an extraordinary ability to quickly and intelligently determine what a criminal case is all about. When Nancy and I opposed each other when she was a prosecutor in the United States Attorney’s Office, Nancy was different from other prosecutors in that she was able to set aside her ego and listen carefully to the defense presentation. While Nancy is an outstanding trial attorney, she was also willing to dismiss charges or recommend leniency when the facts and circumstances of the case supported that position. Nancy’s listening ability corresponds to her ability to speak and get others to listen to her. It is an art form that I have rarely if ever seen in other lawyers. She is aggressive and compassionate at the same time. I am thankful Nancy is now my law partner

  • Laura Lynn Westray

    Nancy Kardon is as good as it gets in the criminal defense arena. I practice family law and have referred a number of my clients to Ms. Kardon who has provided excellent service. Ms. Kardon has a high rate of success of either substanitally reducing criminal charges before they are filed or preventing the filing of any criminal charges at all. She is very experienced having worked for the U.S. Attorney's Office for a number of years. I would highly recommend her services. Laura Westray, Esq.
