What Our Client’s Say About Us

“In an hour, Nikki Maples discerned the danger and gave me the courage and words to address the situation. She listened intently and articulated with enough authority. She saved a 5 year old’s life!”

“Nikki represented me a year ago when I went through my divorce. She was a tremendous asset as she guided me through the complexities of the divorce process with strong commitment and compassion. She truly cared about my family, and worked tirelessly for great results. Today I consider her my friend.”

“I needed last minute attorney in moving out of state with children case. Even it was Christmas holiday time, Mrs. Jones was there for me and gave the best advice. I cannot thank her enough for helping me in one of the most stressful times in my life. She worked in a timely manner and was able to take on my case and got the job done. I would recommend her to anyone.”

“I hired Meagan to represent me in attempting to mediate for my son to attend a highly rated school upon my move to San Antonio. She was very upfront with my options and provided a lot of feedback on how to tackle this issue considering his father was not cooperating. She was a very hands on attorney and always kept me abreast of my case.  She was always very encouraging and fought to the very end. She never gave up on me nor my case……”

“I worked with Nikki and Meagan on a custody issue. They were professional, thoughtful and kind. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a good lawyer.”

“A custody situation is no fun, but Meagan was a complete pro. She calmed me down when I was completely stressed out and she helped me come to a good outcome (in a very tough situation).”

“Meagan is an excellent attorney! She is professional and very knowledgeable with legal matters. I appreciate her truthfulness and diligence with solving my legal situation. Thank you Meagan!!”

“I came to Nikki with a very difficult case and in a situation where a prior attorney had mishandled my divorce for months. It was an uphill battle from the beginning and she did not shy away from the challenge. Nikki understood my priorities, and she focused on them throughout my case keeping me engaged and informed at each turn. She managed my expectations and when necessary she managed me.”

Thank you, John! It was great working with you. You communicated clearly and patiently walked me through all the options along the way. Appreciate you!
