I retained Nancy Iler to represent me in a wrongful death suit. I highly recommend her as a competent, knowledgeable attorney who worked diligently with me to resolve my case.

Her experience as a registered nurse as well as being an attorney gives Nancy a definitive advantage in medical-based cases. She was effective, thorough and professional in her investigation and handling of my case. Organized and efficient, Nancy was fully prepared at each stage of the legal process. In addition to her professional skills, I found Nancy to be caring and truthful, making sensible recommendations and managing expectations. With Nancy and her staff I felt I was part of an interactive team and she sought my input and consensus each step of the way.

Nancy explained the proceedings, filings, and paperwork in layman’s terms, making sure I had thorough understanding and was in agreement with what was going on. Tenacious and confident, she outlined a strategy then executed it. I am grateful to have worked with her and am extremely pleased with the representation Nancy Iler provided me.
