MESSAGE FROM NADIA: I am a self-driven individual who enjoys lifting others up and helping others to recognize their innate power. My area of practice in the law is focused on various aspects of civil and commercial litigation. I enjoy this area of the law because it allows me to disentangle webs. I enjoy simplifying the core issues of legal disputes and presenting options for settling them - however, if the parties are unable to settle, I focus the matter for resolution by preparing clear and concise arguments before the Court.
I am a wife and a mother, and I enjoy hanging out with my family. I also enjoy traveling to places where I can eat delectable foods and see beautiful architecture. I participate in Sports Day at my son's school by running in the parents' race and I am an avid cheerleader!
