Review Nicole Boros
  • I hired Nicole Boros because she is smart, ethical, a great attorney, and knows the law.

    Anonymous review posted on

    Nicole Boros is my family law attorney, and I recommend her without reservation. I recommend Nicole because she is a great attorney, she is ethical, and she is a good person.

    Nicole is a great family law attorney.
    I went to law school myself, so I can tell good attorneys from bad. An average attorney might know what the law is—this should be the bare minimum (sadly it isn’t). A good attorney knows what the law is, and how it applies it to your situation. A great attorney knows what the law is, how it applies to your situation, and whether or not the issue is worth fighting over. In my opinion, Nicole is a great attorney.

    Whenever I asked Nicole what I should do, she gave me thoughtful advice that considered all of the strategic aspects of my divorce—even if I did not happen to like her answer. Nicole is candid and straightforward. But more than that, when she gave me advice I could trust that it was accurate and on point.

    Nicole is ethical.
    Your divorce or custody issue may be contentious and emotionally draining. Mine certainly was. The last thing I needed was an attorney who was going to tell me I could “win” when I could not, or that I should fight, when I should not.

    Because my background helped me know what to look for in an attorney, I did not stop searching until I found the right one for my family–which is I why I replaced two law firms before working with Nicole. Nicole continues to be my attorney today.

    Keep in mind that you are litigating the most important thing in your life—your family. It would not be hard for an unethical attorney to try to convince you how awful your ex-spouse is (you’re probably already thinking this). It would be even easier for a conniving lawyer to persuade you that you should fight because “the law is on your side.” An unethical attorney might even try to convince you that your ex-spouse should never see your children, and that you need a restraining order so that he/she never again sees them. Be wary of firms that do this. Be skeptical of the attorney who constantly advises you to escalate your litigation. Keep in mind that the more you fight—regardless of whether you are “right”—the more your attorney will get paid. In my experience, Nicole only told me to fight when absolutely necessary. She frequently sought to de-escalate my situation—which was 1) the best thing for my family; and 2) directly counter to her financial interests (but kept costs down for me). That is exactly how I could tell she is ethical; she never sought to take advantage of the emotion that occurs in family law.

    The combination of the above traits makes Nicole an excellent value.

    You might find an attorney who charges a lower hourly rate than Nicole. But if that’s how you’re judging value, you are doing it all wrong. Searching for the lowest hourly rate is penny-wise and pound-foolish. My opinion is that Nicole knows the law. You might expect that every attorney knows the law, but this is not so. Prior to hiring Nicole I worked with an attorney who charged a lower hourly rate. And nearly every time I asked this attorney a question about my case I received a typical response of “let me research that for you.” Then, one hour (and $200) later, I received the answer. Or worse, I might ask an associate a question who would say “let me ask the partner I work for.” Then, I’d get charged the hourly rate of both the associate and the partner combined! Whereas when I asked Nicole the same question, she told me the answer in five minutes while I was on the phone with her.

    Nicole is a good person.
    I know many attorneys. Most of them are as enjoyable to be around as an acute bee sting to your eye. But I believe Nicole is more than just a great attorney, she is also a great person. She always treated me more than fairly, never nickel-and-dimed me, and was always responsive.

    Nicole never pushed me to fight--but if I had no other choice--then I knew I could trust her to fight, and to win.

    Nicole is a true Champion Gladiator when it comes to family law! I was going through a very unpleasant knock-down drag-out divorce. The attorney I had originally retained was allowing the opposing counsel to take advantage of my situation in every way. After doing some extensive research and reading a lot of reviews, I found Nicole. It was very clear from the beginning that she was the right attorney for me. She entered into the arena and took charge of the situation. She took a desperate situation and turned it into a positive one with a very agreeable outcome.

    I truly believe no matter what situation you're in concerning family law, Nicole is the attorney you want representing you. She is very professional and skilled. Has a wealth of knowledge and knows exactly how to apply that to achieve the desired outcome.

    I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone going through any situation concerning family law.

    Nicole has assisted me with two matters and did an excellent job on both. She is a good listener and pays close attention to detail. She's also very upfront about your options and possible outcomes. Importantly, she's very efficient! I highly recommend her.

    I'm so grateful for Nicole and her service. My experience with her as my representation was incredible. I was concerned about being taken advantage of after hearing horror stories from friends and family. I had so many questions and had no idea what to do. Nicole Boros was not only kind and caring but she is the epitome of professionalism. She is extremely responsive to any and all my questions and helped to guide me through the process. When we went to court she was prepared, had her facts in order and perfectly handled all questions thrown at her. I could not be happier with Nicole. I would highly recommend her and have given her card out to my friends that are going through a similar situation. Though divorce is hard, having the right person in your corner is so important, and choosing Nicole was the best decision I could have made.

    I had been researching attorneys for my divorce for quite some time and I was fortunate to be referred to Nicole Boros. She was just what I needed. My ex's attorney was a bully and tried to scare me into settling when I was representing myself. I hired Nicole before our big custody hearing (wish I would've found her sooner) and she handled everything with ease. The best part was being in Court with her - she was confident and didn't let my ex's attorney walk all over her. The judge deferred to Nicole a lot because it was clear that she knew what she was doing, while my ex's attorney just sat there - I don't even think he understood what Nicole and the judge were talking about. I walked out of court feeling so happy and relieved, all because of Nicole. Take my advice - hire Nicole before your ex does.

    I am so glad I found Nicole Boros. She made sure I understood the entire divorce process and that I was protected from day one. I had heard horror stories from my friends about how their divorce attorney overcharged them or never called back - I never experienced that with my attorney. Nicole was a blessing and I am thrilled that I found her. Very experienced and well poised in court too.

    I could not have been more pleased with Nicole's services in my divorce matter. My ex was a nightmare and did everything possible to delay the process. Nicole did not fall for his tricks - she responded to only what was necessary which saved me tremendously. In the end, he ended up paying me for his bad behavior. I recommend Nicole without hesitation.

    Nicole was attentive and supportive. I was an emotional mess and having such a professional and sharp attorney helped me tremendously. She fought for me and comforted me when I needed it the most. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an experienced and caring attorney.
