My case had been with another lawyer for 4 years because my ex- was a truly ugly person who tried to take all of my property even though he contributed nothing thru ought the marriage. After 4 years, my previous lawyer had not come to even a beginning of resolution. I almost gave up but I found Nancy here and decided I would try again. To my surprise and delight, she was very supportive and her staff, Connie, were willing to work with me patiently. I needed to be calmed and they helped completely not just with the legal aspects but also with the emotional drain. She was very knowledgeable and very supportive. She gave me clear directions to follow to collect my documents and information. We reviewed step by step and document by document. She helped me by asking the right questions and enabling me to document my side of the conflict. When we were in court, she was completely in control and made it clear to me that everything was going to be fine. She never made a misstep or mistake and always ended each session by telling me not to worry as we proceeded through the court processes. Without her, I would have lost the case, my house and much more I am sure. Instead, she was so prepared that the other side gave up all claims.
I feel that Nancie and her staff put all of their energy to work for their client. I would even note that she was very responsive to all of my questions and would respond to my emails within a single day max. She and Connie even took the time to meet with my Daughter and Son to explain and try to calm them during the most difficult times.
Finally, property division trial ended today with our winning completely. I still have the biggest smile on my face as I write this review. Thank you Nancie as you saved my life and my family.
I realize she is not the least expensive but her experience and quality legal advice are worth every penny. I can personally attest as I started with a cheap one but that turned out to cost me twice as much with nothing resolved in the end.
Thank you Nancie and Connie. Best Wishes.

The first attorney I talked with said that I'd end up giving half of everything to my ex, no matter what I had before marriage. Thank God I hired Nancie instead.
Mine was a very complicated divorce, with a tangled web of assets, financial misdeeds by my ex wife, DV committed by my ex wife, and heinous false allegations made against me. Nancie was calm and reassuring, keeping me informed of realistic expected outcomes.
When I first met Nancie, I told her that custody of my son was the most important issue. I ended up with legal and physical custody of my son, the house, and my work retirement plans. I had the truth on my side, but I needed Nancie's expertise to get what I deserved.
Don't be fooled by Nancie's calm demeanor, she fought fiercely on my behalf. Divorce is not cheap, but looking at how it turned out Nancie preserved assets for me worth 3 - 4 times what I paid her. Thanks to Nancie, my son and I have a good base upon which to start over.
I'd be remiss if I did not mention the excellent support staff. I worked mostly with Connie and she was excellent to work with, as was all the staff. David (Nancie's son) is the other attorney in the office and he gave me some good advice as I navigated through a financial crunch brought on by the divorce.
Having a good case is important, as is actively participating - I was diligent tracking down the documents that Nancie needed. Equally or more important is having a good lawyer, and I had a GREAT lawyer. Thank you, Nancie!

Nancie stands apart from other attorneys I talked to or observed, by serving your best interest even when you don't know what your best interest is. She has a great amount of experience and is very knowledgeable in all matters of family law. She makes sure she always provides value, unlike other attorneys, who are viewing their clients mainly as financial source for their business. Most importantly, she always takes the stance of reducing the conflict, and not further inflaming it, without being a pushover.
I highly recommend working with Nancie.
