My husband and I asked Nicole Smith to handle our step-parent adoption. Her fees were in the range of what we expected. She took care of everything, even when my, difficult to deal with, ex-husband caused the case to stall. My husband and I were on edge and quite literally freaking out for lack of better wording, Nicole was calm and knowledgeable. The case did end up taking much longer than we initially anticipated (mostly my ex-husbands fault, not the attorney). She gave us solid advice and was professional at all times.
