Nathan helped my wife and I through a series of custody hearings so we could get custody of our infant grandson. He not only clearly explained the applicable laws, he also, at our request, helped our daughter understand the situation - even though she was not his client. Nathan ultimately facilitated a negotiated settlement that we and our daughter were comfortable with, and that the court accepted for a final order.
Now, over a year later, Nathan has moved on from private practice, but was nice enough to answer a couple of questions about how a recent development might affect our custody. This generous help was unexpected and extremely appreciated!
I would highly recommend Nathan. His professionalism, expertise and overall demeanor make him an excellent advocate for his clients.

I can not put into words how positive I feel about having Mr. Kortokrax as my Attorney. Mr. Kortokrax continuously went above and beyond to assist with my cases and give me peace of mind. Never was I disappointed with the service I received, nor did I feel I was given advice, guidance, or answers simply to silence me. I was never made to feel I was imposing, or there was a more important case than mine.
Mr. Kortokrax dove into Military Law, which he had minimal experience in, to assist in my case and gain the knowledge needed for my Divorce. Also, I was awarded Sole Custody of my Daughter due to Mr. Kortokrax vast knowledge of Family Law and persistance to win a moral battle. He spent many long hours working my case when many other Attorneys would have not.
Every question I had, email I sent and phone call I made, was always returned and answered with truthful and educated answers according to current law, no matter if it was positive or negative. I could always count on factual guidance and advice when dealing with Mr. Kortokrax.
Affordable, dedicated, proficient, caring, and firm are just a few words that describe Mr. Kortokrax.
In the future if I need an Attorney, or anyone asks if I have an Attorney to recommend for them I will always answer, Nathan Kortokrax.

Mr. Kortokrax understood the nature of my matter and developed an efficient and effective stratregy to resolve my issue. I was never in a position where I did not know what was happening in my case and he ensured that my information about the matter was current. He was very affordable as well. I have also observed his interactions with others and he is very personable, respectful, and civil.

I have known Nate for a number of years and have had several cases with him as both co-counsel as well as opposing counsel. He is a zealous advocate and is exceptionally good at measuring up others. The quality of his work forced me to step up my own game.
