Hannah Conover

“When I walked into Jon’s office I was lost, I had not seen my kids for several months and I was unsure what to do. Jon knew exactly what to do, we made a plan and the first time in several years I had some hope that I would get to see my kids. Jon knows the law and in court he is masterful. I felt like input was valued and taken into consideration at every step. Jon really cares, and my children and their well being was paramount at every step. I would highly recommend Jon Nicholson for your legal needs. I still send Jon updates on my children 10 years after I gained custody and Jon is always happy to respond with kindness and interest in their well being.”

“Jon Nicholson was incredibly professional and kind as he worked with my ex and I through a tough-but-amiable divorce process. With his knowledge and quite-mannered approach, we were able to work through the issues of property, child custody, etc to a satisfactory conclusion for the both of us. Jon became a strong advocate for our children’s needs and rights during our negotiations and review, which proved to be something my ex and I could both get behind. Quality mediation between the two parties was handled with much professionalism and care. Drama was virtually non-existent. I would recommend his services to anyone, especially if you are seeking a fair, amiable solution to a tough legal situation. Jon is your man.”

We assist with many aspects of family law including the following:



Divorce is a stressful time for people and can be multi-faceted depending on the parties involved. In some cases, there are property issues which are significant.  In other divorce cases, custody and visitation is a primary issue in the case. Jon has many years of experience as a divorce attorney dealing with all areas of divorce and can be of great assistance in helping you over the speed bumps and entanglements of a divorce. 

In cases where divorcing couples are communicating and wish to part ways in a less hostile or litigious environment, Jon can assist and has low cost options to finalize your divorce.  Jon has helped many divorcing couples part ways in a friendly manner.


Guardianship law is for those adults or minors who are unable to care for themselves and/or unable to make decisions for themselves. As a guardianship lawyer, Jon has many years of handling the various forms of guardianship. There are guardianships involving children who are unable to care for themselves, and the parent(s) is not properly caring for the child. In this case, an interested person or relative will need to step in to look after the child’s best interest. Jon has handled many cases regarding this type of guardianship.


If you need an adoption attorney, we can assist you with all manner of adoptions. We will help protect the interests of families and individuals who wish to adopt the child of a spouse through stepparent and second parent adoptions.

We handle open adoptions and direct placements. We can act as a liaison between the birth mother, her legal counsel, and the adoption agency or adoptive couple. We can prepare all of the necessary court documents for filing and will represent your interests in any necessary hearings and court proceedings.


Dealing with child custody can be a very stressful time for parents and children.  As a custody lawyer, Jon has the insight and knowledge to handle various issues and situations as they arise in this area.

If trial is necessary, then Jon will assist and represent you through the process.  In the event that resolution is possible between the parties, Jon will work with the parents or other custody attorneys to reach a conclusion which will allow the parents to spend time with their child in a manner that serves the best interest of the child.
