Amazing family law attorney
I am so very happy that I found Mirka for my family law case. At a tough time when tensions were high and my child's future was uncertain, Mirka provided excellent legal advice, personal understanding and thorough professionalism when representing me. She and her paralegal Rory were excellent every step of the way - very responsive to my questions, quick to prepare documents, and super supportive and caring. Thanks to them we have secured a brighter future for my child - I could not have asked for a better outcome, and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone needing similar help.

The best immigration attorney ever!!!!
I had a very complex immigration issue that I never should have had to deal with & it plagued me for so many agonizing years. I got nowhere handling it on my own. I knew I needed an experienced attorney & was blessed to find that in Ms. Nakovski & her Paralegal, Ms. Hardy. After my initial consultation with Ms. Nakovski, she was eager to address my challenges & gave me reassurance that she could help me. Music to my ears!! What an amazing law firm!! Ms. Nakovski & Ms. Hardy chipped away successfully at every obstacle that they were confronted with. They kept me up to date on everything & worked very hard on my behalf. I never had to wonder how things were progressing. It took 2 years of hard work for them to adhere to the numerous requests from Homeland Security but they did it with determination & patience! My needs was their No. 1 priority!! I am beyond thankful for their tenacity because today I am the proud American citizen I knew in my heart I always was but they did what I couldn’t do to prove that I have been since my birth!!! I highly recommend Ms. Nakovski & her staff to take on any immigration issue. As difficult as my case was I wouldn’t be where I am today without Ms. Mirka Nakovski & her firm! I can’t thank them enough. A huge weight has finally been lifted & I can’t express into words how that feels!

Very satisfied with immigration and real estate advice
I have consulted with Mirka on two occasions, she helped me to understand a lease contract I was forced to sign, and also advised me on how to better assist my family member overseas. Ms Nakovski is very professional, diligent and caring, I highly recommend her services.

Amazing lawyer to have on your side
I have felt compelled to write a review for the legal services I have received from Mrs/Ms Mirka Nakovski and her legal team. It's been 10 years now since I first sought out Mrs/Ms Nakovski's legal services and the only reason I've not had much time to write this up until now has been because I've been too busy being a father and having a very active role in my daughters life. None of which would have been possible if not for the fabulous work by Mirka and Rhory. I had a very contested and frustrating divorce that lasted almost 3 years from the time of it being first filed until the final settlement and then was contested again 3 years later from my ex-wife. Through all of the ups and downs and intricacies of my case Mirka and Rhory were a constant rock of empathy and compassion for my daughters and mine needs, not just for the present but future as well. Mirka and Rhory fought tirelessly both in and out of the courtroom on my case with multiple different attorneys that my ex-wife hired and always had my daughters best interests at heart. It's them and all of that tireless work that I'm able to say 10 years later that I never was forced to miss out on a single moment of my daughters life and have been able to have been as active and present as a father should be able to be with his children. In my custody case, because my daughter had always had both a very active mother and father in her life, Mirka helped me realize that I shouldn't try to have that change for her by a every other weekend schedule for one parent because I might have been angry or frustrated with her mother at the time or she with me. Instead helped with fighting for a schedule that helped my daughter continue having both parents remain present and active in her life post divorce. I'm not saying that this is a possibility or reality for all divorces or custody cases because all are different but this was just one of the many ways Mirka helped with mine. Up until that time in my life I had never needed the assistance of an attorney or ever saw the inside of a courtroom let alone be in front of a judge. As I stated earlier that my case lasted years, it was a very stressful and trying time in life for me. Mirka and her team were very understanding and compassionate for me (there clients) and helped me understand all of the legal issues that were happening. it has been because of this that the few times since my divorce that when I needed the consultation of an attorney in a different field, I've asked and gladly been able to receive a recommendation of one knowing that they will hold those same ideals and caring for there clients as Mirka does. As far as recommendations go with family law cases, I can tell you happily that there is no one better than the Law office of Mirka Nakovski. They will work tirelessly on your behalf and help come to a resolution for you that is as quick as possible and in yours and your children's best interests. I thoroughly believe that my case would have lasted much longer and been far more miserable than it was had it not been for there efforts and in my case allowed my daughter to have not just her mother but her father as well playing a daily active role in her life and not a part time or non existent father or mother. Mirka was both stern and respectful in both the court room and with dealing with the other attorneys of the case even when the other attorneys weren't. I've learned first hand that it's difficult to be cool and calm while going through a difficult time and none more difficult then a highly contested divorce or custody case and it's better to have someone who can be on your side and help you through it. When Michelle Obama said during the 2016 presidential campaign "when they go low, we go high" it reminded me of Mirka and Rhory and how they handled themselves with my case in their handling of my case. They do not bully as some attorneys do but will not be bullied either.

Review, opinion of the lawyer, law services and professionalism
Mrs./Ms. Mirka has showed very big understanding, was a good listener, compassionate about my legal problems. She has got a sixth sense so she knows if the person (potential client) had really bad luck and if life circumstances put him/her in big/huge life problems. That is showing her experience in cases, that she could recognize human being true personality and her law skills too. She has showed big empathy to the client - mine - feelings and as the most has worked hard with her diplomatic skills needed for bilateral negotiations to make sure that my son and mine, father-son relationship is possible. She has cleaned my name from the other side accusations. She has made father-son relationship possible again. Her involvement in 2 cases helped a son to have a father again. I would recommend her professionalism, personal touch to the cases - true empathy and that she put my child interest as a main interest, that will be possible that my son will have a mother and father in his life. Her and her secretary hard work saved my life, helped me to stand up emotionally and motivated me that there are people in law system who care about the clients and the best interests of a small 4 years old child. She has motivated me by her kind words to fight in good way to be a father and be part in my son life. By her believing in me she has showed me and motivated me that I have to also fight for better life for myself so I could provide better future for my son. I would highly rank and recommend her law knowledge, her hard work, her professionalism, her involvement into cases for the best interest of the clients. I would highly recommend to the other people, potential clients to use her as your attorney at law. I will definitely use her services again if / when I will have that kind of need in future. Without her will be not possible for me to defend myself and also to be back in my son life. I am and I will be always grateful for her services, her help, her involvement in cases and making things impossible being worked out in the best possible way to me and my son as well !!! Big, huge thank you to her!!! Thank you Mirka and Rory, her assistant!!!

Wonderful when things weren't.
Seven years ago I was referred to Mirka when I was living overseas. I needed a family divorce lawyer who could help me even though neither me, nor my (now) ex-husband lived in Washington State. My husband had left me and our young son in Japan where I worked for the military. For three years he didn't pay child support and wouldn't help with the paperwork I needed to renew my son's passport so we could travel to visit family living in the states. Mirka understood situation and took care of all the details. She had my best interests at heart and her forethought has continued to protect me these past years. She even reached out to me when the Great Earthquake happened in northern Japan to make sure I was okay. Thank you so much Mirka, you were a solid advocate for my side when things were at their worst.

Child support modification
Mirka and her assistant Rory did a fantastic job with my case. Proper paperwork for my hearing was completed and filed on time. Mirka was the ultimate professional and went above and beyond for me at the hearing as she was able to get my child support lowered! That was completely unexpected, since I wasn't the party that started the case. Not only was she able to get my child support lowered, she also got the commissioner to grant a judgment ruled in my favor. I would highly recommend Mirka as an attorney and I will definitely be using her again in the future!

Great, personal service
Mirka took my case immediately and was very professional, giving us an appointment on the same day. After our meeting she sent corresponding emails and was so energetic that the other side withdrew their case. She also called a lawyer specializing in the area and consulted with him. She thoroughly explained everything to me and it was great that we could do everything in Polish

Efficient and enjoyable counsel
This was the second time that I visited Mirka Nakovski. The first was for help with a will, to make sure that my non-resident alien wife would be my legal and hassle-free beneficiary. This time I sought counsel on the costs, benefits and procedural options for establishing green card and residency in the US. it's not often that you come out of a lawyer's office feeling that you had an effective, efficient, affordable and enjoyable experience, but this has been the case after both visits. I'm almost looking forward to my next legal needs!

Exceptional Lawyer
Even though this was Ms. Nakovski's first military divorce, she researched all of the ins and outs of the military retirement, signing bonuses, etc. that would be involved. She found more information on more things than even I had thought to consider. She is very assertive, very effective, and knows how to handle other lawyers, mediators, and is amazing in the courtroom. She answered every question I had, and was always right on top of all communications with me. She does not bully, and will not be bullied. She is everything I need and want in a lawyer.

Immigration Case
Mirka started our case 7 years ago and had stayed on patiently following up and keeping updates on our case. The length of time that our case took before it was finalized is not a joke but Mirka and her staff were always ready to accomodate our questions. They did an awesome job and I highly recommend her to handle your immigration case.

Simply the BEST
Mirka is the best lawyer I have ever had the opportunity to represent me. She skillfully and expertly worked through a very complicated and unpleasant divorce. The documentation she put together was honest, fair and bullet-proof. Mirka remained calm and professional through several very stressfull situations which arose. If you are looking for an experienced, skilled professional who will work for a fair and equitable solution, you would be hard pressed to find anyone better than Mirka. Mirka will continue to represent me in the future as needed.
