“I just wanted to thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for all of the hard work you have done, especially the last few days. You put up with so much that you didn't have to put up with. I appreciate all of your amazing efforts … to help me out. 
 

Not only are you a great lawyer, but you are an amazing person. You were there for me for four years as I was going through the worst aspects of my life.”

"I was involved in a particularly nasty court battle with my ex-husband involving custody of my children. I originally thought I could file all the forms and deal with Family Court on my own, but soon realized I was in way over my head. I heard about Constance Neilson through a friend and approached her for assistance. Constance is a very smart lawyer who managed to sift through the complexities of the case and identify the essential and relevant facts. She guided me through the entire legal process: providing legal opinions, drafting motions and attending court with me where she spoke on my behalf (especially when I was too nervous or upset to express myself properly). Thanks to Constance, my court battle was successful and I was awarded full custody of my children.  There was so much at stake and I am so grateful to her for her advice and assistance through this very trying period.

I highly recommend Constance Nielsen to anyone searching for a lawyer to provide guidance and assistance with Ontario Family Court."



“Constance Nielsen’s professionalism and commitment to me will never be forgotten! Constance represented me in a contentious and drawn out divorce that involved complicated financial and child custody issues. Constance was a very calming presence; she continuously demonstrated a well reasoned, practical approach and was always thoroughly prepared when we went to court.

I find Constance to be that rare combination of kind, compassionate and of unquestionable integrity. I am satisfied of the way she represented me, and very grateful with the child custody outcome.

I highly recommend Constance to anyone who faces the complicated and painful issues of divorce.”



“Constance was a tremendous advocate and resource as I worked through a very difficult time in my life; a separation and subsequent custody and divorce agreement.  She worked collaboratively with opposing counsel to come to a satisfactory resolution -  strongly representing my individual needs/requests with a pragmatic and  approach to outcomes.  She is very calm and level headed and has a great approach to working with her clients.  She was always incredibly responsive and set and managed expectations appropriately.  I would highly recommend Constance (and have!) to anyone.”





“You are awesome, and what a privilege and gift it was to work with you :)”

"To say that Constance was the perfect lawyer for me would be an understatement. I would not hesitate to recommend her if ever asked...she is extremely knowledgeable, professional and at the same time personable. She has an exceptional assistant that is always prompt with her responses and brings the same qualities to her work as I described in Constance. The only sad part is that I will not see them again , I feel as though I have lost two friends. When has anyone ever said that about a lawyer and support staff.
Thank you all for renewing my faith in your profession.
