Family Law Attorneys With Extensive Trial Experience

Family law disputes are fraught with tension, often leading to poor decisions and years of arguments over money and "who gets the kids when." In many cases, it can feel like the person with the strongest attorney will win, because the law is flexible, the judge has discretion and, thus, your attorney's skills matter. How can you get through your divorce, child custody, paternity or restraining order case in one piece?

Hire A Strong Attorney

There are many good family law attorneys out there. But each attorney is unique in his or her approach and, at Nicholson, Gansner & Otis, S.C., it's our trial experience that sets us apart. When a divorce or child custody case makes it to trial, having an attorney who is fearless in court can make a difference in the outcome of your case and in your future.

Our History as Family Law Attorneys

At Nicholson, Gansner & Otis, S.C., we practice family law because we are passionate about helping individuals stand up for their rights and find lasting solutions.

Founding attorney Jessa Nicholson first became involved in family law issues because of her work as a criminal defense lawyer. She noticed a pattern of sexual misconduct allegations that were combined with family law issues. These allegations were sometimes true, but sometimes an attempt to gain leverage during a divorce or child custody dispute. In an effort to offer thorough and comprehensive legal representation to her clients, she began handling both areas of law.

Today, we put years of trial experience to use helping clients find solutions to a wide range of family law issues, including:

  • Divorce
  • Child-related family issues, including child custody, visitation/placement and child support
  • Spousal maintenance/alimony
  • Division of community property and debt in a divorce
  • Domestic battery restraining orders during or outside of divorce
  • Modification of post-divorce orders
  • Paternity cases, including establishing paternity and child support
