Family Law


Divorce & Family Law

Family law is very different than most other fields of law. Yes, family and divorce law involve legal procedures, but at the heart of it, family law is about family. At Van Riper & Nies, we know that what we do may affect clients, especially young children, for the rest of their lives. We take that responsibility to heart.  
Van Riper & Nies combines court experience, compassion, skill, hard work, and trust when representing our clients in divorce proceedings. Our trial attorneys, Tim Nies and Christian Van Riper, take their jobs seriously and are known for working quickly and effectively. Our family attorneys are also experienced in paternity litigation and dependency actions. 
Tim Nies became well-versed in divorce law while working for one of the most notable divorce attorneys in South Florida. He is also a former lead casualty trial attorney for Marshall, Dennehey, Warner Coleman & Goggin, the largest insurance defense law firm in the US. There, he litigated and tried complex civil litigation cases on behalf of both large insurance companies and Fortune 500 companies, giving him ample experience navigating the court system. 
Christian is a former prosecutor in the 19th Judicial Circuit and a former investigator with the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Very few attorneys have the experience Christian has with the legal issues of minors. As an investigator for DCF, Christian investigated allegations of child abuse and child neglect, giving him a wealth of knowledge on family law.  
Our Process 
We at Van Riper & Nies understand that divorce and family law generate a huge amount of stress for clients, especially on finances. Our goal is to quickly facilitate the divorce process as economically and smoothly as possible through negotiation, mediation, or well-planned litigation. We do not delay proceedings for our own financial gain. 
Christian and Tim try each and every case as a close-knit and prepared trial team known for courtroom experience, proactive and tenacious litigation style, and a high level of professionalism. We are always personally available to clients, furnishing them with our personal cell phone numbers, and we leave no stone unturned in advocating for our clients' interests.
