Business and estate planning expert
We were so lucky to discover Nikki early in our business growth. Nikki helped us reclassify our business into a C Corp and protect my personal and family assets. Along the way in our business growth, we neared a few legal roadblocks that Nikki circumvented with ease. In hindsight, her original counseling and structuring of our business saved us hundreds of thousands in the long term. Nikki has always been very thorough, incredibly patient and helped us understand the best options in non legalese. Her way of explaining always makes sense. I would highly recommend Nikki for estate and business planning.

Nikki is a very thorough and responsive attorney. She was readily available to answer all of our questions during the estate planning process and always went above and beyond to provide excellent support and service. We feel relieved knowing we have such a solid plan in place for our children and would recommend her services to anyone in need.

Nikki was always quick to respond to my many questions and it was a pleasure working with her. I would definitely hire Nikki again.

Very thorough and informative
My family and I found Nikki Hlavin to be very thorough when answering our questions. We had a very unique legal matter at hand and Nikki was able to guide us through the entire process with professionalism and patience. Nikki was always communicative and took the time to explain everything until we fully understood our options. We grew to completely trust Nikki and will always turn to her should we fall into another legal bind. I would highly recommend her to our family and friends.
