Heather Nalley has been one of the greatest heroes in my life. On multiple occasions, she has helped me with legal matters, family, and estate planning, as well as aided me in growing my professional network. Her professionalism and confidentiality are second to none and I will continue using her services for the rest of my life. I suggest you do the same.

I went to Heather for some advice during my divorce. She was very professional and gave me valuable information. I would highly recommend her, and I would use her in the future if I ever needed an attorney again.

Heather did an amazing job for a client I had referred. She was prompt and extremely effective. For me, as an attorney, it is always important to be able to refer people to other attorneys I can trust to give quality legal services. I will not hesitate to refer Ms. Nalley again to other clients for matters I do not handle.

The team at Gentry Nalley were so helpful to my wife and I when we decided it was time to set up our will and trust. Even though we were in the middle of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, they were able to make the process smooth and painless. They were very professional, and responsive to our questions. Made the whole process easy to understand. Highly recommend using them!

The Law Firm of GENTRY NALLEY,PLLC, Absolutely the Best, Honest, Hard Working, Result Driven.

I was referred to Mr. Fiani over twenty years ago(by a well-known criminal defense attorney from the metro Detroit area who said “if I needed a criminal defense attorney in Livingston County, I would call Jules Fiani”) for a criminal matter i had.

After discussing, and reviewing my case then explaining the Law to me I retained Mr. Fiani. He reassured me throughout the legal process of what to expect and brought my case to a resolution that exceeded my expectation.

I was very satisfied with Mr. Fiani and the results he achieved for me twenty years ago. I again retained GENTRY NALLEY, PLLC in April 2021 to represent me. Mr. Fiani and the Legal Team at GENTRY NALLEY, PLLC concluded my case to a favorable outcome for me and my family.

For any legal advice call GENTRY NALLEY, PLLC, ATTORNEYS AT LAW.

Having to get a lawyer was very scary for me. When I contacted Heather she made me feel comfortable and that she had my best interest in mind. She was patient and empathetic and I couldn’t have asked for someone better to represent me.

Heather has represented me in different cases. One (several different cases within this area) was a DUI, which led me down a path of growth in life, with proper legal support with Heather. The other area she represented me was in child custody. I was not in a divorce, but that doesn’t stop me from telling both women and men to TALK TO AN ATTORNEY about some big problems. Two days ago I posted about her, without mentioning her name because it was a global Facebook group. But more like why it was so important for this person, who was clearly in a situation that needed to be making decisions based on logic instead of reacting with emotion, needed to find a good good lawyer. Not complicated even when the situation seems unmanageable. As long as you have a super competent attorney, these situations can be turned around onto a good path because they should guide you like Heather does. She set my head straight again for a court problem that she helped me realize wasn’t such a problem when it can be straightened out with someone who knows what they’re doing.

My first interaction with Heather Nalley was as a district court judge presiding over a domestic violence case, so I had the pleasure to see her in action firsthand and from a detached perspective. Despite all the pressure put on her and her client by the prosecution and, admittedly, the court, to tender a plea, Ms. Nalley was thoroughly professional and pleasant while zealously advocating for her client and his right to a jury trial. Her style is not in your face but rather calm, collected and logical. Always polite, I watched as she picked apart the prosecution’s case without undue hyperbole or harshness, all the while being endearing to and engaging with the jury. While I never expected it beforehand, by the time the jury began deliberations, there was no doubt in my mind that a not guilty verdict would be returned, as it was.

Therefore, unfortunately, when I found myself accused, I immediately turned to Ms. Nalley based on my own experience and observations. As you can imagine, being a judge probably made me most attorneys’ nightmare client—and rightly so because I understand the system and was righteously indignant at being on the other side of the bench. I had my own ideas on how my defense should be handled and wasn’t afraid to share my thoughts with Ms. Nalley, sometimes quite strongly. But she is unflappable and was able to manage a client used to issuing orders and having them followed. Many a time she talked me off the ledge to my own benefit and the judge in my case even commented on how professional and cordial she and the prosecutor interacted despite the prosecutor’s clear intent to make me a notch in her belt.

Although we thoroughly prepared for my jury trail and were ready to proceed to what, I’m confident, would have been a favorable verdict, Ms. Nalley stood up to the prosecution’s pressure to enter into a plea agreement and was able to secure a dismissal in my case. Without qualification, I highly recommend Ms. Nalley as your defense attorney in any criminal matter; she is knowledgeable, prepared and disarmingly pleasant while being a true advocate ready to go to trial when you need it!
