Paul and his staff are very professional, very knowledgeable and an excellent firm to work with.

The  firm does a great job of keeping me informed of the divorce process.  They are very easy to work with and add the human touch to a very difficult situation.  I very much appreciate how they handled my case.

Paul represented me from day one and was, most memorably, an excellent negotiator, in addition to being fair, pragmatic, and at all times professional. My ex burned through three firms over the course of 9 years and none matched the savviness that Paul's skills exhibited in and out of the courtroom. Paul was absolutely pivotal in resolving the case, and he provided the personal attention, at all hours of the day or night. His billing was always fair and always felt I was receiving the best value money could buy.

Paul  Nelson was very professional and informative prior to, during, and  after handling my legal situation. I was grateful for his guidance, and  communication throughout the process. Additionally, I appreciated his  availability in answering any questions I may have had.

More often than not, family legal situations can be very time consuming, frustrating, and lengthy.

I  am thankful that even in the midst of all the details, Paul Nelson, and  his associates were notably helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, and  speedy in all actions and correspondence.

Excellent Attorney

Paul Nelson and his team were  excellent. They were tough when they needed to be and willing to  negotiate when that was appropriate. Paul handled my case beautifully. I  am confident that others will find him to be one of the best family law  attorneys in Southern California. I recommend him without hesitation.

"5 Star Attorney"

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.

This guy is Tough....and Good!

I saw Paul in court in action. I had previously interviewed 3 other attorneys before hiring Paul.

He  provided me a realistic view of my case and an outline for his plan  from the outset. He suggested that we set up a settlement meeting with  my ex prior to court. We were able to settle a number of things at that  time.

Paul was very effective with the judge, the other attorney and the experts we had to hire in my case. I highly recommend him.

"Highest Standards of Integrity"

 5.0 of 5.0 stars 

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. Not one of them cared about  my case, or responded to any information I gave them.

Within  three days of my Judgment, my Ex stopped paying me. I turned to a friend  who I met just before my divorce was final, and asked her to please  give me the name of her lawyer. She had been quite happy with him and  she got a good result.

I met Paul Nelson. Paul has been nothing  but a God send for my post-divorce work for the past four years, which  is quite often. My Ex continues to stop paying support routinely, which  is challenging and don't need the additional stress. Paul had to help  with everything that the "other lawyer" forgot to put in the Divorce  Judgment, that I wouldn't even know to ask for, such as being taken off  the mortgage on the house that I Quit Claimed to my Ex. Paul has  exceeded my expectations at all times compared to any of the other  lawyers I had. Paul has been nothing but kind, compassionate, and  willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that I will get what I am  entitled to now. I am always amazed that, at last, I like and ADMIRE a  GREAT LAWYER. He is the most ethical and honest lawyer I have met in  Orange County. Paul has been supportive and gone the extra mile many  times for myself and for my friend that referred me to Paul.

Please  do yourselves a favor and read the reviews of divorced people. Don't  hire a lawyer or law firm by name, or from a neighbor that "heard about  someone". Divorce is very emotional and stressful and you should go  through it with someone who cares about your life after your divorce and  well being. You need a lawyer who will be there for you for the long  haul, not pass you off to a "lawyer in learning". Hire someone who will  care about You, be compassionate, understanding, and intelligent. Hire  the lawyer who will get you everything you deserve and are entitled to.  Hire the lawyer who will communicate with you personally.

That  lawyer in Orange County is Paul Nelson. I can count on Paul always, and I  know he is there for me no matter what work I'll need in the future.
