Nichols Zauzig, and in particular Cassandra Chin, has handled my family law situation for several complicated cases. Initially, I attended a seminar given by Mr. Nichols and he gave me confidence that the firm works hard for their clients. This proved to be especially true regarding Ms Chin. She is extremely well versed in Virginia family law, devotes the needed time and energy to the case, and far out classed the opposing counsel. She kept me well informed of the status of my case, presented options of how best to proceed, and every time we had a discussion I felt better about where I stood. I highly recommend Nichols Zauzig and specifically Ms Chin for any family law situation.
When it became clear to me that my custody & child support situation was not going to come to a resolution without the courts getting involved, I was referred to Nichols Zauzig by a family friend who had previously had a wonderful experience with this firm while being represented by Paul Nichols. I cannot say enough amazing things in regards to the representation I have received by Paul Nichols. His knowledge of the law and ability to analyze a situation, (sometimes that situation could mean the second right before the court hearing is to begin) and to be able to quickly make the right decision for his client is completely remarkable. I wholeheartedly will continue to put my trust in him and highly recommend to others needing an amazing, experienced, results driven attorney to do the same.
The experience from start to finish handling my divorce case was outstanding! Melanie Rice and her legal assistant (Lisa) were as good as you can get. I was constantly kept informed, my questions were answered, and I just can't say enough about their expertise. I highly recommend the Law firm and would most certainly use them again in the future if needed.
I promise, this review is worth the read.
I have been fighting custody of my ten year old daughter her whole life. It has not been an easy road. I have been through many lawyers and haven't had good representation. That is, until I came across Mr. Andrew Taylor. During our initial consultation, I could tell he genuinely cared about my case and he truly wanted to help me.
Most lawyers wouldn't take on a case six weeks before trial. But Mr. Taylor was up for the challenges he knew he was about to face. I placed all of my trust in him and Samantha and they didn't disappoint. Mr. Taylor was always honest with me during the whole process. He also kept me informed so there were no surprises. Mr. Taylor was extremely professional as was his paralegal, Samantha. Needless to say, the outcome was what I had hoped it would be. The time and efforts him and Samantha put in for my case is something I will forever be grateful for.
I highly recommend Mr. Taylor and Samantha and if I could give them 100 stars, I would.
I was given Nichols Zauzig a few years ago as I contemplated a divorce. I’m thankful that I had their number because I suddenly needed them. My ex had her attorney send me an email telling me she wanted a divorce. Cassandra Chin urged me to try to work out a settlement agreement with my ex, but it is no surprise we couldn’t work anything out ourselves.
Just before we went into a settlement meeting between the 2 attorneys and my ex, my ex pulled her original (untenable) offer and submitted an offer even worse.
Cassandra called me before sending me the new offer and and told me not to worry because the new offer was against Virginia statute in several areas. She assured me that I would do better than the original offer my ex had just pulled. She was absolutely correct in her assessment. We got a much better deal and made a few nominal concessions early in the meeting that paid dividends later.
Though I got divorced later in life and my ex had no savings or investments of her own, I will be able to retire thanks in no small part to Cassandra’s guidance. I thought we worked well together and I owe my future to her.
