“Mr. Nygaard and Janet handled our divorce with the greatest care and consideration.  They made things so easy and explained what to expect throughout the process.  We engaged them after another firm had been bungling the paperwork in ridiculous ways and forced us into several delays.  The Nygaard team listened to us and was able to quickly correct all of that and we felt comfortable in their hands the whole time.  I cannot commend them highly enough nor recommend their services often enough.”

“I so much appreciate your firm, but even more,  the appreciation of the professionalism and integrity of you as individuals is beyond reproach.”
