“My Moral Compass”
“From the moment I met NiaLena, I knew that she was different.” “I’ll never forget what NiaLena said to me at our first meeting, ‘If your goal is to just win the case, you’re not a client for me, but if you intend to work hard and make real life changes, I’d consider taking you on as a client’.” “This statement left me floored[, as] I had spent the last several weeks listening to countless sales pitches and here she was telling me about the life changes I needed to make and the hard work that I would be putting in if ‘she’ wanted to take me on as a client.” “Looking back on this meeting now, those words ring more true today than I ever could have imagined.” “NiaLena had realized (before I did) that I had become very lost and needed help to find my way back.” “In the 2 years of my case, unlike my codefendants who [got 16 and 18 years and] hardly ever heard from their lawyers, I FaceTime’d with NiaLena on a weekly basis and emailed almost everyday.” “With her, my case had the best possible outcome.” “NiaLena invests her heart and soul into her clients because she truly wants to help restore them to good lives.” “Put simply, NiaLena is one of those, ‘once or maybe twice in a lifetime type individuals’.”

“It Is Because Of NiaLena That I Now Have My Life And Career Back”
“The day that I met NiaLena was one of the worst days that I can remember in my entire life. All that I had worked so hard to accomplish in my life and in my career as a senior business executive was ready to come crashing down due to my own stupidity.” “She cleared her schedule to meet with me right away. She never judged me, she listened with far more than lawyerly interest, and she was totally and brutally honest with me. Her calmness and steadiness and insight and wisdom were so reassuring that for the first time in a long time, I felt like I was finally talking to someone who would… give me the true information I needed to make the best decisions and move forward from the mess that had become my life.” “More than all of this though, NiaLena really cared about me. Her numerous emails, not only from her office but also from her European vacation, and her inquiries about my life aside from this case were certainly above the call of duty and were not only greatly appreciated but were also my lifeline during this most catastrophic period. I was in jeopardy to lose it all – my life to the prison system and my career and top position in the world of high-level finance.” “I knew before I hired her that she was a great attorney, but I have also come to know for sure that she is an even better person. I feel blessed to have met her at this time in my life. I truly believe that it is because of her that I now have my life and career back.”
