Cleaning up a mess
Mrs. Nelson came in on the tail end of what should have been a open and shut case. After literally NO guidance from my previous attorney, I was about to simply throw in the towel and walk away. Mrs. Nelson met with me, and worked diligently to salvage what she could of my case and I was very pleased with her effort, and honesty about the situation. I would recommend her firm to anyone in need of solid representation.

Best Attorney
I hired Ms. Nelson to assist me with child support and alimony issues after my divorce. She handled my case in a professional manner from the start. There was never a time that she was not there for me. My questions and concerns were always handled in a timely manner either by her or her office. She fought hard for me through out my case, which did take considerable time. Over that time, I came to think of her as a friend, someone who truly had my back and not just my attorney. I have since recommended her to others in need of an excellent attorney. If the need ever arose in the future where I again needed legal representation, I would pick up the phone and know Ms. Nelson would step up and do an amazing job.
