I was a little nervous after our initial consultation because he wasn't saying everything that I wanted to hear. But he was honest and prepared me for all possible outcomes. He assured me that he would fight for the well-being of my minor child and he did just that. His words to me "you may hate me when this is over". And he was so wrong. I respect him for his honesty and compassion regarding my case. He has proven to be a very patient man and a great lawyer.
Thank you Mr. Nelson:)

I strongly endorse Seth Nelson and would refer him to others with the utmost confidence. Seth is an exceptional family law attorney, who at the last hour, took on our case and assisted our family with a very complex child custody and relocation matter. Unlike other attorneys in the industry, Seth is truly compassionate and dedicated to helping people. From beginning to end, he was always committed to our case, kept us informed and was extremely reliable. With his guidance and expertise, we had a very successful outcome in trial and he helped us get through a trying and difficult time. We are truly indebted to him for his guidance and efforts on our case. Without reservation, I recommend him highly.

Seth Nelson is hands down one of the best litigators in Florida. He works tirelessly and represents his clients zealously. You will be hard pressed to find an attorney with a better reputation in any community.

I have had the opportunity to represent several clients in mediations with Seth as the mediator. I use Mr. Nelson as the mediator in my highly contested and complex cases. He is very thorough, professional, and ethical. His creative and intellectual thought process makes him a great problem solver. I highly endorse this lawyer.
