Divorce, Child Custody And Family Law

When you are facing divorce, a child custody or child support dispute, or another issue in family law, you may feel like you are going through some of the toughest moments of your life. These issues really cut at the heart of how we see ourselves and our place in the world. It is perfectly normal to feel emotional when you are going through these issues.

Compassionate And Tough

Family law issues are sensitive and resolving them requires a sensitive approach. These issues are often settled out of court through negotiation, mediation and other techniques, rather than through arguing in front of a judge. This can be especially important when children are involved.

Attorney Jaclyn M. Nichols is trained in collaborative law techniques and has the skills to vigorously support her clients' interests while reducing unnecessary conflict. Still, when issues can be resolved only by going to trial, her background in criminal defense has provided her with ample experience fighting for clients in high-pressure courtroom situations.
