Nelson Family Law

Let us be your voice

Our Firm

Founded in 2008 by Patricia R. Nelson, Nelson Family Law is a boutique law firm focusing solely on family law. Our guiding principle is to provide solid legal advice and guidance to our clients that address their particular needs within the parameters of the law and we do this in an honest and reasonable manner. No two family law matters are the same – there is no “one size fits all” fix. Some matters invite a creative solution, others require a formulaic approach.


Whatever circumstance you face, our firm is mindful of how quickly legal fees accumulate; this is the benefit of our team based approach and it enables us to deliver cost effective services. We invite you to contact us by phone or by email below for a complimentary 30 minute initial consultation.


Our firm’s experience encompasses all areas of family law with a focus on complex financial matters involving self-employed clients (both sides), salaried clients, high net worth clients, disparate income earners (full-time homemakers financially dependant on the primary bread-winner), property division, support (spousal and child), varying court Orders and Agreements, paternity, and high conflict custody and access cases – to highlight the most common areas of conflict.


We adopt a multi-disciplinary approach to address the complexities of a family law matter as we guide the client and his/her family towards resolution. We call on business valuators, specialized accountants/finance professionals to conduct and advise on asset tracing, medical health practitioners if clinical issues are a concern and we partner with parenting experts. If appropriate we explore Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), also known as mediation and mediation/arbitration but if that is inappropriate, the matter may need to proceed to court – we do that too. The most prudent resolution avenue is carefully examined and together with the client, his/her strategy is developed.
