Eric C. Nelson, Attorney at Law

Firm Overview

Since graduation from the University of Minnesota Law School in May of 1994, I spent two years as a judicial clerk for the Honorable Lois J. Lang, judge of district court, during which time roughly half of my workload involved the drafting of divorce decrees, orders, and legal memoranda on a host of issues pertaining to divorce, child custody, child support, visitation, spousal maintenance, distribution of marital and non-marital property, valuation of property, adoption, name changes, domestic abuse and harassment, and the like. During this period I attained a great deal of inside experience and expertise in the family law area.

In 1996 I opened my own law practice in downtown Minneapolis, practicing exclusively in the areas of family law (i.e. divorce, custody, child support, spousal maintenance, adoption, etc.), and criminal defense. I have successfully handled many divorces, contested and uncontested, custody matters, child support cases, adoptions, domestic abuse and harassment, and other miscellaneous family law matters, both in and out of court. I have been praised by my clients for my respectful attitude, promptness and honesty. References are available upon request.

Characteristic of my practice is a high level of individual client attention and communication, as well as professionalism and competence.

I graduated magna cum laude from Macalester College in St. Paul, MN in 1990, and earned a J.D. (Doctor of Law) degree from the University of Minnesota Law School in May of 1994.

I am a member of the Family Law section of the Hennepin County Bar Association, the Minnesota State Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.

At leisure I enjoy reading, piano, movies and spending time with my friends and family.
