Reviews of Nishi:
“I give 5 stars (excellent) to Brasher Law Firm and to Nishi Kothari, who was the lead attorney on my insurance claim for storm damage to my home in North Texas. I retained Brasher LF as my trial attorneys after 2.5 years of being pushed around by my insurance company through no actions, delays, postponements. When Nishi got involved, she took control. She is professional and not offensive, yet convincing with opposing counsel. She is easy to communicate with; she creates calmness around her, yet has a mind like a steel trap….always prepared. Anyone needing strong legal advice or representation in an insurance claim or lawsuit, Brasher is the “go to” Law Firm. They are no joke; they know their business. I feel fortunate to have found them for my representation.” – Stan B.
“Great firm, great attorneys. Nishi Kothari was a pleasure to work with and diligently worked on my behalf to get great results. I highly recommend Brasher Law Firm.” – Wanda Smith
“We called Brasher Law Firm after a tornado severely damaged our home, and our insurance company was refusing to pay. Within a couple of days, we signed the papers, and Ms. Nishi Kothari got started on our case. She is a very knowledgeable attorney and such a pleasant person to interact with. She explained the entire process in detail, and updated us during every step along the way. We never felt like we were in the dark, and when we did have questions or concerns, she took the time to take our calls.
Before we hired Brasher Law Firm, we had accepted that we would have to pay out-of-pocket for the damages, but thanks to their help, we got paid out by the insurance company, and were able to do all the necessary repairs to our home. Thank you so much Brasher Law Firm, and thank you Nishi!” – Ammar Ali
“As if Harvey wasn’t enough, our frozen pipes burst 5 months later and home owners [insurance company] wanted to blame us. Nishi Kothari, with Brasher law firm, saw it differently. She fought for us, tooth and nail for more than a year, until victory won the day. Nishi was our attorney and friend throughout. She remains our friend!! Thanks Nishi!” – Disa Albanese
“I was referred to Nishi and Brasher Law Firm after my father had trouble getting paid for a claim from his insurance company. Not only did I find Nishi to be prompt, courteous and professional… but she was also extremely knowledgeable and efficient. There aren’t enough available stars for my family to express our gratitude for her service! Thanks You!” – D. Ware
“After being told by multiple lawyers that I really had no case or that my chances of being awarded any settlement was very slim, I was referred to the Brasher Law firm. Nishi worked on my case and with very little effort on my part, she put together my case with an opening statement and presentation that put my opponent on their heels. She set a goal from the start and didn’t relent until her goal was met and I got what was owed me. Thank you Nishi for knocking it out of the park!” – L. Smith
