    • I recommend Lance Nelson.

    Lance has been very effective in fighting against a cynical attorney on my divorce case. I applaud his consideration for kids affected during divorce and always helped me to make decisions which are the best for my kids future.

  2. Among family attorneys, Lance is unquestionably a cut above.

    • I recommend Lance Nelson.

    I have no compunction about recommending Lance as a family attorney. He guided me through a divorce with clarity and efficiency.
    While stories of divorce attorneys doing the utmost to increase the level of acrimony and rancor in the interest of increasing fee revenue are abundant, and having witnessed exactly that dynamic by my former spouse's counsel, Lance's approach could not be more diametrically opposed. Even in instances where I allowed my emotion to cloud my judgment and was ripe for engaging in needless squabbles, Lance was there to help me reestablish perspective. He is eminently rational and collected.
    Ultimately, I cannot recall an instance where a misstep was made and I was able to extricate myself from an unpleasant situation in as little time as was realistic under difficult circumstances.

    • I recommend Lance Nelson.
    • I hired Lance more than 3 years ago.
    • Lance handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    It is easy when getting divorced to make emotional decisions. Lance helped keep me on track by constantly benchmarking my emotional choices against my long term goals. His ability to steer my communications and ultimately my decision making to achieving my goals was an enormous benefit. Lots of lawyers understand the law. Lance not only is a great lawyer, he also understands people and how to motivate them to success.

    Mr. Nelson's calm approach to negotiating the tumultuous process of a hostile divorce and custody battle can be contagious. No matter how heated or volatile the process becomes, he never seems to loose his cool and keeps his composure at all times. He knows the system and the process, and conducts himself as a true professional.

    My process with the most painful experience of my life, but he was there for me every step of the way, and in the end I got everything I wanted and more. He knows when to show his hand, and when to stick to the plan. He is organized, and no matter how busy he seems to be, he always knew the details of my case off the top of his head without having to reveiw the mountains of paper in my files.

    As far as I'm concerned, he's the best that West Chester has to offer in the excruciating process of family law, expecially when children are involved.
