Nicole is truly amazing at what she does. I called her with a rather complex issue, which she took the time to talk me through. She was never in a rush and helped me to understand every angle that I was facing with the situation. She really helped me understand what I was walking into so that I could make an informed decision and explain it to everyone involved. Rachel

Nicole is a uniquely gifted attorney and an all-around pleasant person to be around. As former military and a current professional, I have a certain level of expectation when I invest time or resources into someone. It seemed like every moment I spent with Nicole she was teaching me something. She clearly exceeded my expectations. She was kind when needed and fierce when needed. I highly recommend her. Tyler

My husband and I engaged the services of Nicole earlier this year for two reasons: 1) to create our estate plan document and 2) to help my husband navigate the VA system. We immediately felt that we were in good hands on both fronts. Nicole is extremely competent in both areas. She completed our estate plan in the time frame promised, answering all our questions to our satisfaction and provided the advice we needed. Bertha
