Deborah Nelson has practiced family law with integrity for 28 years.

Deb’s family law practice includes adoptions, child and adult guardianships, premarital agreements, divorce, enforcement of divorce judgments and appeals.

Some cases must go to trial, like the international kidnapping case that Deb tried over a 12-day period in Bergen County Superior Court. Most cases, however, resolve amicably utilizing alternative dispute resolution processes such as mediation and collaborative law. Deb is listed on the court-approved roster of economic mediators, is retained as an independent mediator, is certified in collaborative law, and serves on the New Jersey Supreme Court Complementary Dispute Resolution Committee.

Deb is a former President of the Morris County Bar Association and the Morris County Bar Foundation. In continued efforts to give back, Deborah volunteers with Susan G. Komen North Jersey, an organization dedicated to eliminating breast cancer.
