Exceptional Client Service Is Our Promise To You

Excellent Attorney Nicole DeBorde is an excellent attorney. Throughout the proceedings It was obvious that she is well respected in the court room. It is clear to me that had I used any other attorney the results would have been very different. The attorney you choose makes a significant difference in the outcome, and I highly recommend Nicole Deborde.


Nicole has no equal Nicole goes above and beyond the “call of duty” both in and out of the court room. Her statement to us when my husband and I hired her was that she would treat us like her family. She most certainly has done that. It has been almost 5 years since adjudication and she has continued to help us with any need that may arise. In this world of uncertainty, there is no one else I would rather have as our counsel…
