    In 2008 I filed for divorce after 20  years of marriage. I only wished I had been referred to Paul Nelson  back then, instead of any one of the four attorneys I left over the next  3 years.

    5.0 Stars our of 5.0 Stars

    Paul is extremely caring and wants the best for me and my children. After working in OC for years Paul knows the procedures, the court's staff and most all the Judges and attorneys. This is especially helpful when preparing for his appearances. He is especially knowledgeable with Family Law and does an excellent job making sure my rights are protected. I have not observed any other attorney stand up the same way Paul does.
