Divorce does not have to be messy.

Matrimonial & Family Law

Our office, along with its predecessor, has been representing individuals confronted with divorce for more than forty years. We have helped thousands of people amicably resolve a variety of family matters, and many of those without ever visiting the courthouse. When that is not possible, we have achieved success in hundreds of contested cases.

We are located in Nassau County, New York, convenient to major highways, and represent clients primarily on Long Island as well as in New York City. To learn more about us and the services we provide, please browse our website or contact us directly. All inquiries are confidential. We invite you to call us at (516) 223-5500 or to email info@nelsonlaw.com to arrange a free initial consultation.

We remain open during the current public health crisis. For in-person appointments, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire regarding potential exposure, and a mask is required to be worn pursuant to government guidelines. We are also able to conduct the majority of our business electronically, by phone and by videoconference calls.
