About me


Family Law New Hampshire is a distinctive Manchester, New Hampshire-based family law practice dedicated to helping clients achieve the best financial and custody outcomes in their divorce, parenting, and other family law matters.  Attorney Edrea M. Grabler is a respected Manchester divorce lawyer serving clients in Manchester, Nashua, Concord, and across the state of New Hampshire. Attorney Grabler specializes in helping parents secure the best custody outcome and way of life for their children and assisting clients without children secure the home, property, financial assets, and retirement funds they are entitled to.


Divorce is never easy.  It comes with many difficult emotions and decisions.  With your children, your house, your property, your retirement assets, and your way of life at stake, Family Law New Hampshire helps you navigate this difficult transition by delivering hands-on, personalized care that other larger, conventional law firms cannot match.  Attorney Edrea M. Grabler only takes on a select number of clients because she is truly committed to understanding your unique situation and helping you achieve the best possible outcome. By understanding your objectives and helping you separate your emotions from your goals, Attorney Grabler will walk you step-by-step through your family law matter – whether it is divorce, alimony, custody, child support, guardianship, termination of parental rights, or adoption – keeping you intimately connected to your case and confident in your outcome.


If you are thinking about divorce or if you are actively looking to get court papers filed, Attorney Edrea M. Grabler can discuss with you strategies to achieve the best possible outcome for you. Quite often, clients seek out Attorney Grabler because they’ve already gotten divorced, but the terms of the divorce are not being upheld or respected or they just aren’t working. If you are divorced but the Final Divorce Decree or Parenting Plan has become unworkable, Attorney Grabler can discuss with you how to make modifications to help you and your family attain the way of life you deserve. If you are unmarried but your relationship with your kids’ dad or mom has ended, Attorney Grabler can help guide you so that you achieve the best outcome for your children – and the child support to which they are entitled. If you need to secure a guardianship over a child or an adult, file to terminate parental rights, or file for adoption, Attorney Grabler will assist you in getting the result you seek.


How is Edrea M. Grabler different from other divorce lawyers in Manchester, New Hampshire? 


She just does family law – working with spouses who don’t have kids to help get them the real estate, investments, and retirement assets they’ll need for their future; working with husbands and wives with children to help them secure the home, property, and retirement assets their family will need; and working with unmarried parents to ensure they get the best custody outcome for their sons and daughters. No matter your situation, whether you have children or not, whether your relationship was long or short-term, whether you have significant financial assets or not, whether you are in a same-sex or opposite-sex marriage, Family Law New Hampshire can help you strategize how to achieve your best possible resolution.


If you are committed to achieving the best outcome for you and your family, are thinking about getting a divorce or obtaining court orders in a family law matter, are ready to file court papers, or need to modify the terms of your divorce or parenting order, please call Edrea M. Grabler at (603) 669-2933 or e-mail her at for a confidential consultation. All initial consultations are free, as Attorney Grabler will only take on the clients she can truly help. If your case is not the right fit for Family Law New Hampshire, Attorney Grabler will refer you to a firm that can help.


With twenty years experience practicing law in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, Attorney Edrea M. Grabler received a B.A. from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, a Master's Degree from Boston University, and a law degree from Boston College Law School.
