Compassionate Family Law Advice to Protect Your Rights

In our family law practice, we help clients make the difficult transition through divorce and other life-changing events.  We get to know you personally, understand your values and goals, and provide compassionate and caring support.   Then we fight hard to protect your rights and interests. We understand that divorce can have significant financial and emotional consequences both in the short and long term. The Law Offices of Gofotth & Nelson help our clients prepare for life after divorce by asserting their rights and protecting their interests in the division of marital property, custody and support.
