Hughes & Nelson

“Doug Hughes did a wonderful job representing my brother through his divorce. I followed closely from the beginning through a 2 day trial and then the ruling. Doug and his entire office conducted themselves with the utmost character and integrity. I would recommend Doug to anyone who wants to win! Our family will be forever grateful Doug. Thank you and everyone in your office!!”

“We met with Mr. Hughes and went over our case, he was able to cut through all the hard legal terms we did not understand and help us understand the pros and cons of our case. We were able to resolve our issue without going to court and are very satisfied with the outcome. We would recommend Mr Hughes to anyone looking for a understanding, professional family Lawyer.”
A Satisfied Client

“Doug Hughes is a fantastic attorney. He is incredibly knowledgeable, honest and fair. He works hard and does his work for the right reasons. I have recommended him and will continue to do so. I couldn’t imagine what my family’s life would have been had we not found him.”
A Satisfied Client

“Doug was recommended to me by another lawyer, and I have no regrets about hiring him to represent me through mediation and a guardianship case. Doug helped me understand the complex, legal processes relevant to my situation. He patiently withstood my countless (and probably repetitive) questions. Thanks to Doug’s excellent advice and representation in court, we prevailed. In the unfortunate instance I need a family law attorney again, I will definitely call Doug.”
A Satisfied Client

“This was the second time I’ve needed Doug’s services and I will say that without a doubt, he is the best attorney money can buy for family law issues. I was very happy with the results the first time as well as the second time. Doug is intelligent, responsive, thorough, and thoughtful in how he conducts his business. A true professional. I will definitely seek out his services again if ever needed.”

“I own a franchise of a nationwide corporation. I was very pleased with Douglas Hughes. Mr. Hughes worked with me in compiling documents for CPA Scott Martin. He was organized, promptly returned my calls, and was very knowledgeable about business valuation.”

“Doug was awesome on my relocation case. I had lost my job and had to move out of state. My ex tried to take custody away. Doug’s presentation was top notch, covering all the areas the court needed to hear. I was allowed to move right away with a great parenting plan. I would totally recommend him, worth every penny!”
A Satisfied Client

“Doug totally helped me on a custody case. I had an emergency situation that needed immediate restrainign orders and we were in court the same day and the sheriff served my ex that night. The kids were safe, my ex was ordered to do treatement or lose time with the kids. Worth everything that it cost, and the judge really liked how Doug presented everything and argued. Very professional and I would tell anyone to pick him.”
A Satisfied Client

“Doug is amazing. I was surprised by my ex with request for divorce. Because my ex was so angry and focused on money, Doug was able secure for me an amazing parenting plan AND a good monthly child support with very little given up on the other end. He did this all with a legal separation which was finalized within days of meeting with him and converted to divorce just 6 months later. This let me have final parenting plan immediately but still stay on the work health insurance until I could catch up. In a situation in which I was emotionally devastated, Doug took great care of me. When I talk to other people about what happened to them, I know the results I got with Doug are simply second to none. I am so glad that I hired Doug to help me. He really is the best.”
A Satisfied Client

“Doug helped me with my divorce. It was a situation where my ex was saying things that were just not true and and I didn’t know where to turn. Doug knew exactly how to handle my cases. I remember being in court and listening to the judge say that we were exactly right and the other side was just plain wrong. I was very pleased with how my case turned out. Being a prosecutor came through when we got to trial and Doug was amazing. Going through what I went through was hard enough, but Doug helped me through the whole thing. He was highly recommended to me by multiple people, and 5they were right. I will recommend Doug to everyone that I can.”
A Satisfied Client

“Doug got me out of a very tricky situation in which I was falsely accused of domestic violence. I met him the day I called, he appeared for me in court the next day and the whole thing was thrown out. Highly recommended”
A Satisfied Client

“I hired Mr. Hughes to handle a very demanding child custody matter. He obtained immediate restraining orders in my case giving me temporary custody, and won the hearing on temporary orders. The rest of the case went great, with Mr. Hughes winning motions and making my trial go away because the other side simply agreed to what I wanted in mediation. I found that his ability to go to court like a prosecutor with great early results paved the way for a total win on my part. He and his staff kept in good touch with me and I knew what was happening at every stage.”
A Satisfied Client

“Douglas Hughes came highly recommended to me from someone who knew him from his years as a prosecuting attorney. He was very knowledgeable about the law, and helped me understand the options that I had, as well as the best path forward for my situation. I appreciated his communication with me, from working with me to review all of the documents in my case to making sure that I was prepared for trial. When I saw him cross examine my ex it was worth everything and more. The result was very good for me, but it also helped me put a difficult chapter of my life to a very satisfying end.”

Emily Nelson’s reviews

“I have found Mrs. Nelson to be a very dedicated lawyer. She has returned my phone calls quickly and she is an excellent listener! She knows the law so well that I am very pleased with the results!”
A Satisfied Client

“Emily was just the greatest. I didn’t have my kids and I felt like my whole life was over. Emily took the time to sit down and just guide me through everything. We’ve been through so much together, I had to do treatment and had a few issues, but she stood up for me in court and was a real fighter. Even when all the prosecutors and social workers were all against me, and said there’s no hope you just got to give it up, Emily was in my corner! She is so awesome! She helped me understand what I needed to do, and I made it through. My kids are with me, I have a new place now, and they are in school and doing good. I am so happy I listened to Emily and got through the whole thing. I really couldn’t have done it without her.”
A Satisfied Client

“Emily was assigned to my case and boy was I lucky for that. She helped tell me about the law, my case, and how to get ahead on the other side. She was not afraid to tell it like it is even when it wasn’t what I wanted to hear. This was probably the only way that I won my case, doing what she mapped out for me. Who knows what could have happened if not for Emily’s help.”
A Satisfied Client

“She is very knowledgeable and has a way to putting me at ease while my world was crushing down on me! I felt confident in her ability and knowledge. She responded quickly and if she was not sure of the answer to my question, she would always get back to me within that day or the next day. She is fair, just, and extremely professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs a lawyer that will fight for you!”
