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 highly recommend Summer Rose Nichols if you are searching for and need a lawyer who works in family law. We first consulted her which was a free consultation, and then hired her to help us with a legal family situation surrounding our grandchild. She is professional, very thorough and knowledgeable. She took time to explain different legal actions available, offered her best advice and then listened to our preferences and responses regarding. We had a successful outcome in our case and we credit it to hiring Summer Nichols. The outcome was a very difficult one to achieve in Florida law, but she did it and we are so very grateful. The one most striking characteristic that stood out throughout it all was her caring and passionate way she dealt with our case. She is genuine. She also offers payment plans as there are persons, and we are one of those, who do not have all necessary funds upfront. This payment option helped make legal assistance available for us. 5 star rating for Summer Nichols!!
I had a great experience.
I am very satisfied with the representation by Summer Nichols in my divorce case. I feel like my case proceeded in a very timely manner with only 5 months between separating from my wife and the divorce being finalized. I owe a debt of gratitude to Summer for creating a visitation schedule that was fair and accommodated my work schedule. For this reason I have been able to remain a consistent presence in my daughter's life. Summer also recognized that my wife's spousal support demands were egregious and guided me through proposing a counter offer that was more realistic and much reduced the duration of my wife's demands. Summer was respectful, caring and professional throughout the process even through all of the continued conflict with my wife and my many rambling emails about our interactions. She was the steady presence that I needed. I would recommend her to anyone who asked.
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!
