Nicole was absolutely awesome in my case with CPS. She did everything professionally, and was on the ball everytime and did nothing but present the facts and truths of the case.
She was open to my input and research to help her, and didnt think i got in the way by helping sometimes. She is the best, and if you ever need an attorney, and need help in family law, NICOLE is the ONE you want, HANDS DOWN!

Miss Chafetz, or Nicki as she likes me to call her is not only the most outstanding attorney that I have ever know but is also a true friend. She is very sincere and caring no matter how she happens to be getting paid for the work she is doing. I am very proud to say that she is my attorney, and prouder still to call her friend! She keeps me up to date of all that is going on and has more honesty in her little finger than some people have in their whole body. She understands that you are in a place you don't want to be in and does everything humanly possible to help you get through it as fast and as painlessly as possible. She works hard and makes every effort to help you get through your individual circumstance! She has been forthcoming and, sometimes brutally honest to the point of making you angry with her for saying it out loud. If you want a great attorney and to win go with Nicole B. Chafetz and you will have the whole package!! Thank you so much Nicki if it weren't for you I probably wouldn't have my daughter right now!! I will never be able to repay your kindness and hard work for me in my case!!!

Nicole has been above and beyond my expectations during my prolonged child custody battle with my ex-wife. She has been very understanding of my situation and was instrumental in communicating and negotiating with the multiple parties involved. I feel extremely fortunate to have found her and am confident that she will continue to impress me in the time to come.

Ms Chafetz guided me through a very difficult custody case. She explained the proceeding, kept me informed and provided support at every turn. She was prompt in keeping me up to date and was able to review with me as to what would happen next. My nieces were able to come home with me to Connecticut. Thank you Nicki

We hired Ms. Chafetz to assist us in maintaining custody of our 4 children. I was most impressed with the tenacity and indomitable spirit she displayed in fighting for my family. Her experience, passion, and often unorthodox approach make her a devastatingly effective legal weapon. My husband and I could not be any happier with our experience and outcome.

There is a person in my past life that has brought several frivolous lawsuits against me. Nikky, has won all the cases for me so far. I would recommend her.

I appreciated the no non-sense straight forward approach of Nicole and her team. They were all very committed and concerned for me during this awful milestone of my life. I especially enjoyed Nicole's assistant Lewis L. Humiston, IV who championed e-mails to OP (opposing counsel). I learned a lot about myself and how when tragedy hits your life you can get the support and care without emptying your bank account. Thank you Chafetz Family Law Group, you are the Grass Roots Legal Aid that knocked my Divorce out of the Park!

My attorney was kind and professional. She always had my best interest at heart. I found that at times that I would have to make the initiative to follow up with our scheduled meetings and phone calls otherwise they may not have occurred. I always received an apology but it was difficult to deal with while going through a divorce

Hi, I just want to right a note of praise for our lawyer Nicole as she helped our family in protecting our grandson in getting custody for my son , she not only had great knowledge of the law but made us feel like she was part of our family through this , thank you Nicole for your hard work you did for us. We are now contacting Nicole in help for our family again as the mother is stirring up matters that we know will be handled contacting Nicole.

nicole chafetz was my lawyer for over 7 years during a very long, drawn out cps case involving drug addiction, military combat service and incarceration,among other things. she was outstanding in her defense of my case even while i was stationed overseas in iraq and back stateside. her respect towards clients and her focus on mens' rights makes her immensely qualified.

I endorse this lawyer. She is a fantastic trial lawyer, creative and passionate in her advocacy approach with both dependency and family law clients. I have had the pleasure of being in trial with Nicole and have seen first-hand her successes in court. I look forward to working with her again.
