“Thank you for all your hard work. It really has saved the relationship between me and my kids. 4 lives are better because of what you do in today’s world. I know I couldn’t have done this without all of you. Thank you, Kathy, London, Amy and Nicole.”

“Nicole represented me in my divorce, and I have nothing but positive things to say about her. She is very professional, dedicated and knowledgeable. She will go above and beyond to help you achieve your desired outcome. I would recommend her to anyone!”

– Divorce client (5-star review)

“Nicole and her staff were always professional and did exactly what they said they were going to do from the beginning. When I was struggling with each step, I felt very comfortable speaking with them. They earned my trust. I trusted them to handle the divorce fairly and to protect me and my kids. They did. They always gave me a realistic idea of what will happen. They made each very frustrating, confusing step into a simple, “done and over” matter. I highly recommend Nicole Ferry. She has my vote for the number one divorce attorney in Pensacola. “

– Dave

“I want to thank you for giving me the safety of my children for the first time in six years. The lightness and change in the boys was almost immediate, I wish you were able to see what this little victory for them has done. My boys get to be kids again. Thank you for giving that to them, thank you for giving that to me for them. You have truly changed their lives!”
