I sat down and met with her prior to hiring her. She listened and took notes and made a promise that I had a solid, easy case. Initially she came across and empathetic and trustful, which shortly changed. My ex-husband almost emptied out a very large settlement I was awarded due to an accident. I paid the retainer fee and after that, she completely Changed. First, I no longer felt like she was representing me. My ex had a more experienced lawyer, and everything she told me we could do and she presented to the opposing lawyer, she would come back and say the lawyer would decline and present something else and Teri would always say she couldn't do better and we should accept. I always left feeling alone and defeated and in tears. She charged me for every little email, voicemail, discussion, her having to talk with the other attorney or any other discussions, etc. My bill came to roughly $20,000!!! My ex only got billed around $6,000! PLEASE, be careful. I wish I would've paid to break the retainer fee and hired a more experienced and dedicated attorney. Probably the biggest regret I have made.

Teri and her team were a God send during a long and difficult time. She was understanding. She listened to me and my emotions and responded quickly. She is very honest about the process and what to expect. She was with me every step of the way always giving me advice and explaining the options. I would recommend Teri and her team to anyone seeking a divorce attorney. Our custody issues could not have been in better hands as well. She is simply the best! " It is what it is" is one of Teri's phrases and I would add my favorite "it is what Teri said it is".

Teri is an excellent attorney. She handled my divorce in a very professional Way. She and her assistant are extremely responsive and kept me informed during the whole process. The best part about Teri is that she listens. She gives great advise, but lets you be involved in your divorce and is a partner in the process. In my divorce, I had some special issues to deal with, and she gave great advice. When I decided to to go in a direction she was not 100% bought into, she explained her opinion but then did what I asked. I could not have asked for a better partner in the process. I highly recommend her as a divorce attorney.

Teri is an intelligent, experienced, detail-oriented attorney who genuinely cares about my situation and has been very supportive throughout the process. Teri knows what matters to the court and got me excellent results that exceeded expectations. I can’t imagine using any other attorney for my divorce in 2001 and subsequent child custody issues. She has a good relationship with the judges and clerks at the courthouse. Her staff is excellent. She is extremely knowledgeable about the law. I would highly recommend Teri to anyone in need of a family law attorney. She's great and I'm lucky to have her for my lawyer! Thank you!

Teri Nelson is an honest, smart and efficient lawyer. Her experience and knowledge showed in the courtroom. Each time we went to court I knew what to expect and Teri helped keep my emotions in check. My divorce process included a lot of negotiation. Teri presented me with options that we thoroughly discussed. She was honest in assessing my situation and its expected outcome. I am confident in every decision I made. Teri quickly returned my emails and phone calls. The entire time I felt like her top priority. I am blessed to have Teri guide me through an extremely stressful time in my life. I would highly recommend her.
