Divorce is a difficult process. However, it is a single event within your life and not the sole event that defines it. While it is often easy to become mired in a difficult event such as a divorce, it is important to realize that difficulties bring tremendous opportunities for growth, change and new beginnings.

Why Hire Us

Your divorce and family conflicts are only chapters in your life, but at Nicole L. Goetz, P.L., they are our full-time business. We encourage our clients to see opportunities in the process and stay focused—not merely on the present—but on the future. Our attorneys help each client keep that focus by actively pursuing creative resolutions that allow them to have greater control of the outcome, to keep their costs down and to move forward more quickly with their futures. These resolutions include non-litigation alternatives such as mediation, negotiated settlements and participation in the collaborative law process, to attempt a quicker and more private conclusion to difficult family issues. Unfortunately, not every case is suited for these processes and we remain equally committed to litigation if settlement proves impossible.

How We Work

We cannot, and do not guarantee results—no lawyer or law firm can. At Nicole L. Goetz, P.L., we firmly believe that complex or difficult cases present opportunities to put our knowledge and training to work for you. Our legal team chooses to focus its practice exclusively on family law issues and appeals. We are a boutique firm committed to knowing our chosen practice area and practicing law with the utmost ethics and professionalism.

Nicole L. Goetz, P.L. represents clients in marital and family law cases, including complex and high-net-worth divorces. We represent clients in all phases of a case, including settlement, litigation and appeal. We also provide assistance to other attorneys on complex legal issues and appellate matters.

What To Expect

Conflict Check

Before any meetings or exchanges of information can take place, we need to check to make sure that we have not represented your spouse in prior legal matters of any kind.

Initial Phone Call

One of our assistants will call you to get some background information, explain how the initial consultation works, suggest what documents or information that we may need, and give you a breakdown of our rates.


Gather documents that we will need, organize your thoughts and bring your questions to ensure that we cover what you need to and so that we can be efficient with your time and budget during your initial consultation.

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation allows us to explore your story and your desired outcome and gives us an opportunity to give you legal information and discuss the possible options moving forward.


If you’d like to proceed and we’ve agreed to take on your case, the last step before moving forward is entering into a retainer agreement.

Discuss Strategy

After your first consultation and when you’re ready to move forward, we’ll fine-tune the strategic direction that we believe will work the best for you and your family. It’s important to find the right fit.

What Our Clients Say

My divorce was complicated; there were circumstances with business and personal assets, not to mention a minor child. I needed an experienced attorney who understood the stakes and would be able to handle the intensity to protect my interests. I interviewed several attorneys, but after meeting Nicole, I was confident that she had the qualifications to successfully represent me. Not only did Nicole achieve the outcome I wanted, she always maintained sensitivity, honesty and integrity. Divorce is a stressful time for anyone, but I was glad Nicole was on my side instead of my Ex’s.

I was recommended to Nicole over two years ago. Before that, I was aware of her reputation as a very fair but tenacious litigator. In family law it is critical that someone is represented by an accomplished, well known and respected Lawyer. This certainly describes Nicole Goetz.

During a very personal and trying time in my life, Nicole was contacted for her expertise in family law but especially for her work at the appeal level. With appeal work being a specialty, I wanted the best.

Nicole Goetz has all of the qualities that make a great attorney. She is a great listener and communicator. It is very clear from the beginning what the issues are and the direction that needs to be taken for a successful outcome. Nicole has a calming and positive approach to very difficult situations. She also takes a true interest in each and every client.

In my situation, I needed a specialist in appeal work. Nicole’s preparation and strategy was second to none. She is a skilled negotiator. When it came time for mediation we were completely prepared and obtained the results we were seeking.

In closing I would like to say that Nicole is very encouraging and helps you to stay focused and stay the course. I am extremely pleased that Nicole Goetz represented me.
