Our Stuart divorce lawyers, Tim Nies and Christian Van Riper, take their jobs seriously.They are known for being legal warriors for their clients and for not permitting controlling spouses, nor their attorneys, to bully their clients, whether in negotiations, depositions, mediations or trials.
Tim is a veteran or the United States Army Rangers and a skilled divorce trial attorney. Christian is a former Prosecutor and a former Investigator with the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Very few attorneys have the experience Christian has when it comes to legal issues of minors. As an investigator for DCF, Christian investigated allegations of child abuse and child neglect.
Florida has one of the highest divorce rates in the country. Divorce is not easy given the emotional, financial and legal uncertainties that surround the divorce process. Family law is very different than most other fields of law. Yes, family and divorce law involve laws and legal procedures, but at the heart of it, family law is about "families". Our divorce lawyers know that what we do may affect clients, especially young children, for the rest of their lives. Tim and Christian fight hard for the welfare of their clients, especially when small children are involved.
At the same time, our divorce and family law attorneys and paralegals understand that divorce and family law matters generate a huge amount of stress, especially financial stress. Our goal is to quickly, through negotiation, mediation or through well-planned litigation, facilitate the divorce process, as economically and smoothly as possible. We do not wish to have the reputation of delaying a divorce proceeding for our own financial gain. It is critical that our reputation of courtroom experience, efficiency, trust and hard work remains intact.
