Being involved in a divorce or family law matter is an experience many people haven’t had before. Often, clients come to Jennifer Nixon overwhelmed because they don’t know what to expect and are dealing with the stress of divorce or loss of a loved one. She is an experienced family law attorney who helps make sense of it all and provides a sense of relief through these important transitions in people’s lives.

Jennifer is an avid proponent of Collaborative Divorce, a process where couples and their attorneys agree to settle out of court. This innovative alternative keeps control of decisions about the future in the hands of the couple instead of a judge. It can also be more expedient and less expensive than traditional divorce.

Jennifer works with clients through the difficult process of divorce, providing them advice while including them in the process every step of the way. Jennifer also guides clients through estate planning matters, creating wills and trusts that best fit their specific situation and their goals. She provides clients with an advocate in family law and estate planning matters in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the Twin Cities metro area, including Hennepin, Ramsey, Anoka, Washington, Dakota, Scott, Carver, and Wright counties.

Jennifer Nixon offers a free initial consultation, where she will listen to your concerns and help you determine the most appropriate next steps. Please contact her to set up a no-obligation appointment.
