Michael Simon Central Property Management LLC

Trusts & Estates Law

Sara Curley of Nutter has been a trusted resource since my husband and I made our initial estate plan about 15 years ago, and she subsequently helped us revise and update the plan when needed. In addition, Sara provided advice as we navigated the administration and settlement of a relative's estate. I was an executor, and the estate was being handled by a team of lawyers at a highly regarded, international law firm out of New York. However, Sara provided advice and displayed expertise when offering guidance that far outperformed the other law firm.

Andy Huntoon Trammell Crow Residential

Land Use & Zoning Law

Every attorney with whom I have worked at Nutter has a high level of expertise and the ability to dissect the most complex legal issues and problems. That being said, Nutter's advice always contains practical suggestions and careful risk analysis, which makes Nutter my go-to law firm for sophisticated legal matters. The more complex the matter, the more it may be necessary to cross departments and disciplines, and that is where Nutter is superior to other large law firms. The attorneys work as a team and are always collegial. As a result, Nutter's legal service and legal products are comprehensive, reliable and thorough. As a high-level government official in a state legal office, I need attorneys that recognize and appreciate political challenges and constraints and the often unwieldy requirements and bureaucracy that comes with government work. There are good law firms that cannot deliver on public sector legal work the way Nutter can. That being said, I have recommended Nutter for consideration for private work as well.
