Nicole's ethical professionalism is what made up my mind that she was the lawyer I wanted handling my case. I found Nicole to be extraordinarily thorough, precise, honest and truly kind. I at all times felt informed. I was prepared for all possible outcomes because of the integrity of my attorney.
“In the past eight years of working together in litigation matters ... you’ve exhibited the traits that I believe are beneficial to representing associations … Working with Boards of Directors of differing opinions and styles can be challenging, but you have been able to successfully work under various conditions and succeed in each case. You have always been a pleasure to work with, extremely helpful and will go out of your way to provide timely and quality service to the clients you represent. I’ve been fortunate to observe your representation of a community to tremendously successful outcomes in very complex litigation in at least four cases…” Principal, Progressive Management
