Telephone (732) 202-9300 Telefax (732) 202-9033 John W. O’Brien, Esq. Of Counsel When people think of lawyers, what terms come to mind? Aggressive, argumentative, outspoken, expensive, complicated - most likely - but how about the terms - empathetic, listening, healing? Not too likely. At Nolan & Associates, we’d like to change that.

We are committed to being a value-added provider of legal services. As reflect below, our firm’s members have proven records of experience and success in business and the law. But what sets us apart, makes our firm special, is the experience of the Founder and Managing Member of Nolan & Associates, Michael K.W. Nolan. That’s because Mike is a member of the International Alliance of Holistic Attorneys. So what is a Holistic Lawyer, anyway? To quote from the 2002 article in New Jersey Lawyer, which featured Mike, “ … the basic philosophy is that a large measure of mediation mixed with bits of anger management, personal therapy and New Age enlightenment will produce clients who are more satisfied with their experience in the legal system …. The concept is to bring, for lack of a better word, a 1

However, if you also want a lawyer who cares about you as a person, and wants to see you happier at the end of your legal situation than you were at the beginning, he can do that, too.
