“I cannot imagine going through this process with anyone other than you!  Your perspective, feisty drive, lightening intellect and understanding buoyed me throughout the entire process.” ~E.W.

“Divorce can often be a terrible experience, and if a custody battle is involved it can be horrendous.  Having worked with numerous lawyers, Nanci was the only one who was willing to fight for a fair resolution.  She explored all options and didn’t give up.  I wouldn’t think twice about hiring her again, and highly recommend her.”  ~ H.B.

"Very seldom in our lives do we come across people like you…someone who genuinely cares about others. No words can express how grateful I am for your timeless effort and energy invested in this whole process.  I just hope you know how appreciated you really are…this whole process has taught me a lot and I have you to thank for that."  ~J.A.

“I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your guidance, counsel and calm spirit during this tumultuous time in my life.  I truly appreciate it and value you!” ~ H.W.

“Thank you so much for keeping me afloat during the storm.  Could not have done it without you.” ~I.D.

"Nanci Smith served as my attorney through a very contentious divorce and custody dispute. Throughout the course of this very stressful and painful process Nanci not only represented my best interests but acted as a coach, guiding me through what ultimately became the most emotional and difficult time of my life. I truly believe that Nanci’s practice of collaborative law should be the new norm during divorce or custody proceedings. Aggressive and confrontational tactics create a lifetime of anger and hurt that destroy all hope for co-parenting."  ~S.C.

Here's what our clients had to say about Collaborative Practice...

“I’ll never be able to thank you enough for your expertise in guiding me through this process.  I truly felt part of a team, which offered me great comfort. I am a fan of the Collaborative practice!” ~E.W.

“Divorce is by far the hardest thing I have ever done.  But, I’m grateful to have had your services within the Collaborative Law process that provided certain emotional parameters-a sort of code that is informed and guided by your experience-to work towards my own long term wellness and the well-being of my kids.”

“I really appreciated the whole process.  Specifically setting goals in the beginning, having them hung as great reminders.  Having the mental health coach as a part of the team was great. End goal→kids first, non-adversarial.  Fabulous!  ~H.W.

"I wanted a peaceful divorce...I think it is helpful to use the collaborative approach when the separation and divorce is mostly amicable.  I found it helpful to have my lawyer representing my needs which is a step up from mediation where you have to stand up for yourself and best outcome.  I appreciated the sensitivity to difficult emotions and subjects of all the team members."  ~S.B.
