About Nelson & Yarnell

NY2018Our mission at Nelson & Yarnell is to help resolve family law disputes in the best and most respectful ways possible for our clients. We know that family law disputes are difficult for our clients and their children. We strive to work both in and out of court to help our clients anticipate, resolve, and avoid the difficulties and complexities that sometimes occur in family law disputes.

We provide a wide range of services tailored to our clients’ unique needs. We assure our clients the highest level of quality through a firm depth of knowledge, experience, and talent. Our firm’s lawyers have participated in the lawmaking process, both legislatively and judicially, and have initiated progressive solutions for those going through divorce and family transitions.

We see our responsibility as legal professionals to help those with simpler needs by providing lesser involvement, “limited scope” representation for clients who simply need guidance, rather than the typical “full services” of an attorney throughout an entire matter.

Our firm handles family law matters primarily in Johnson, Wyandotte, Miami, Lynn, Franklin, Douglas and Leavenworth Counties, but also throughout Kansas.

Our attorneys are recognized throughout Kansas and the United States as experts in family law.

Ronald W. Nelson is a Fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) and the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (IAML), is a member of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) and is recognized as a ‘Super Lawyer’ by his peers.
