I have known Nadia for about 3 years. She has represented me in the most professional manner, her ethics are of the highest standards. Her friendship, courtesy, knowledge and honesty have become very important to me during the time she represented me in a civil litigation. I will continue to use Nadia in any and all my legal needs.

Rocco,

I used Nadia’s services for my divorce matter. I found her to be professional and meticulous and at the same time warm, approachable and responsive in her dealings. She provided me with insightful advises along the way that enabled to prevent any issues during the divorce process and helped me achieve a fair and straightforward outcome

I would like to thank you Nadia from the bottom of my heart for all the assistance you have extended to me and would be glad to recommend your services to others in need. Wishing you the very best

Sruthy,

Nadia had provided legal advice and guidance during a difficult situation. I found her to be experienced, responsive and possesses a sharp legal mind. I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a client. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. Nadia fought hard for me. She went above and beyond and did everything she could to ensure a great outcome. I am grateful that I have met her. Thank you Nadia once again.

Scott,

Around September 2018, I was having a dispute with my main tenants as she had breach the tenancy contract. The situation become very stressful and depress for me as I have no idea on how to deal with this kind of situation.

So, through online research, I found this website thinking that maybe this could help to come out with some sort of idea or provide some guidance on dealing with things relating to main tenant breaching the tenancy agreement. I choose Nadia without thinking much and I am glad I made that decision. She shows me that I have the right to demand compensation as the contract indicate and provide insight and ways to deal with the issues when I am having difficulties dealing with unreasonable main tenants who twist the meaning of the contract denying any wrongdoing.

I can’t thank her enough as she help me fight back the humiliation and the stress the main tenant had created. For this, I had refer her to my housemates who also having similar problems.

Thank you truly for helping me Nadia.
