"We leave no stone unturned..."

Van Riper and Nies Attorneys, P.A., a Martin County military veteran-owned law firm, is known among fellow attorneys and clients for leaving no stone unturned when representing their clients in divorce proceedings.

Our civil trial lawyers, Timothy Nies and Christian Van Riper, are cousins and make for a close-knit, effective trial team. Timothy, a military veteran, having served as an Airborne Ranger with the elite 75th Ranger Regiment, is a former lead casualty trial attorney for Marshall, Dennehey, Warner Coleman & Goggin, the largest insurance defense law firm in the U.S., where he litigated and tried complex civil litigation cases on behalf of large insurance companies and Fortune 500 companies. Prior to that, Timothy worked for one of the most well-known divorce attorneys in South Florida.  

Christian a former Prosecutor in the 19th Judicial Circuit, and former Investigator with the Department of Children and Families (DCF).  Few lawyers have the experience Christian has regarding the protection and welfare of children and families. 

Florida has one of the highest divorce rates in the United States. Divorce is not easy, to say the least, given the significant emotional, financial and legal uncertainties that surround the divorce process. 

Family law is unlike most other fields of law. Yes, family and divorce law involves laws and legal procedures, but when you get down to it,  family law is about "families".   Our attorneys know that what we do may affect clients, especially children, for the rest of their lives. Our lawyers take their job seriously. Being a former DCF investigator, Christian Van Riper fights for the welfare of our clients, especially when small children are involved.

At the same time, our lawyers understand that divorce and family law matters generate a great deal stress, especially financial stress. Our firm’s goal is to quickly, through negotiation, mediation or through well-planned litigation, facilitate the divorce process, as economically and smoothly as possible.

Our attorneys are available day and night for our clients. Each of our clients have our cellular numbers and are encouraged to call us whenever they have a question or concern after business hours.
