Making the decision to hire a lawyer is a both a personal and professional one. Professionally, the attorney needs to be skilled in the particular area which you need representation. Family law is unique from any other type of practice and requires individuals who can excel in this particular area. Personally, you must feel comfortable working with the attorney you choose. As a little girl, Mrs. Nichols would assist her parents in their family business. As a result, the experience taught her the value of putting clients’ needs first and exceeding client expectations. The people she meets with in her office every day are going through some of the most difficult and emotional times of their lives, and she understands how important it is for them to feel comfortable with her and place their trust in her skills.
I retained Summer Nichols for a DV Injunction Case. It was a nightmare on Elm Street with the circumstances of this case. Summer assured me that I was good in hands when I retained her. No, I was in EXCELLENT HANDS. Summer went above and beyond her duties as an attorney to provide outstanding legal services. She was upfront and honest from day one with the reality and expectations of the outcome of this case. I could literally contact Summer at any time with any questions or concerns and she would respond. Summer and her staff are awesome . Summer comes highly recommended.
Thank you Summer Nichols for everything you did for me. After 18 years of marriage, you made this terrible time of divorce as quick and painless as possible. Everyone I know including myself can't believe it was done and final exactly 1 month of filing. Thank you for walking me through everything and being by my side through it all. I would recommend Summer Nichols to anyone who needs a professional lawyer to be by your side. She is very sweet on the inside but can be tough on the outside if needed! If I ever need a lawyer again, she is the one I'm calling! Thank you again Sharon Davis
I’ve used Summer twice now. Once for a name change for my minor son and it went amazingly smooth approximately 7 months ago. She is in the process of handling my divorce now and could not be more wonderful. She is empathetic, understanding and very helpful through every step of the way. I have had several meetings with her, both on the phone and in her office and can easily get ahold of her for any questions I may have via text or email. I would highly recommend her!
Summer is Awesome! She has represented my son in family court, and she comes highly recommended. She leaves no stone unturned.
I retained summer in summer 2016, in summer 2017 she got me more time with my daughter and a much lower child support payment. I can go on and on about how happy I am with what she did for me and my family. But instead I'm retaining her again in summer 2018. Thank you
