Attorney Nicks did amazing work and it was a blessing to have her by my side. I was in jail for 366 days total. As soon as we hired Attorney Nicks, I was out of jail within 4 months for two counts of serious felony charges. She was able to get my case resolved faster than other private attorneys that were hired by some of my cellmates. She was such a blessing and worth every penny that we spent.

I had Attorney Nicks assist me with two different types of cases. She had both cases handled quickly and smoothly. She is very aggressive in the court and will be sure to always fight for her clients. She gets right down to business and gets the job done. Attorney will ensure that you are always updated on your case to ensure that you know what is going on at all times. Attorney Nicks was very well informed about all parts of my case.
