I Became a client of Nedda's from my past expeience with her that started with a previous Attorney. The previousl Attorney was well know, hard hitting, well respected, and a well established attorney in Santa Clara, and still is. Nedda was her assistant when I first met her, and she was Awesome. When Nedda went out on her own, I quickly terminated my realtionship with my current attorney and asked Nedda to take me on as Client, Nedda knew more about my case, my children, my needs than my high paid, high profile attorney.
She listened to me, she addressed issue's I had that effected my relationship with my children and she represented me wonderfully in court and outside of the court room
That doesn't mean I got everything I wanted, lets face it this is the court system, even with that speed bump, She has done a wonderful job for me, and I'd like to say my children as well!!!
I can say from a long experience withing the child custody court system that you must be an advocate for your self, no one, not even your attorney knows your children or your ex like you do.
Again, Nedda has been upfront, honest and forth coming with all options and possibilities that may happen in my case. I am very happy with her representation of me during those trying times, and I have and will continue to refer her to anyone that I know needs a GREAT Attorney.

She is a one woman office. She convinced me to hire her, when I had only intended to have her help me fill out paperwork only. Since she was so convincing that she would do a good job, I hired her. As it turned out, my ex had a tough attorney, and she ultimately couldn't handle the case by herself, as she stated to me she did not have enough office help. We had to enlist an experienced attorney, who taught her how to re-word some of the paperwork (double the work, and double my bill) Although she was getting training from the experienced attorney regarding how to proceed with my case, she still charged me fully, as did the other attorney. During the final negotiations she almost lost me benefits that my children had been awarded at a previous court hearing. It had been a long day and my ex attorney fought hard for her client. Rather than standing up for what I had already won from another proceeding, this attorney tried to talk me out of the benefit. She said I had enough money to cover the dental needs. I found this comment to be inappropriate. I had to explain to her, multiple times, this was a benefit we had already prevailed - and it was a medical benefit for my children through my ex's company. I did not have an employer who offered those benefits, therefore I had no clue why my attorney made the comment she made to me. I would have respected her had she simply told me this was a tough case for her to handle.
