Testimonials

  • I can say that Nelson, Taylor & Associates have been the most reasonable, empathetic, and responsive.

    ​​​​​​I have had legal needs spanning several years during a divorce and custody evaluation. Having worked with a few different firms in both Utah and Salt Lake County, I can say that Nelson, Taylor & Associates have been the most reasonable, empathetic, and responsive.

    Any family law issue has the potential for high anxiety, emotional reactions, and long-term impact on one's financial and family situation. I have been guided by Wade Taylor through the worst of these and will always appreciate his time, patience, and skills on behalf of me and my family.

  • I am extremely pleased with the service, legal counsel, and professionalism of Nelson, Taylor & Associates.
    I am extremely pleased with the service, legal counsel, and professionalism of Nelson, Taylor & Associates. Mr. Taylor worked with me throughout an almost 4-year divorce. He was great to work with and worked out a financing option that I could handle. Mr. Taylor presented my side extremely well and the judge favored his professionalism, documentation, and arguments over opposing counsel. The judge ruled in my favor on all issues; although I wasn't asking for anything ridiculous. I would highly recommend their legal services.

  • He knows the law very well and I highly recommend him.
    Mark came highly recommended from 2 different people and has given me great advice and has tons of experience to help me make informed decisions during this process. At one point he corrected my ex's attorney on visitation law. He knows the law very well and I highly recommend him.

  • He was professional and insightful in all of the documents he looked at and drafted to make sure I was completely taken care of as his client.
    Nick saved me. My life was a complete wreck and I had no idea what to do or how I would afford anything and he was so kind and affirming. He made my case go so incredibly smoothly and was not too expensive at ALL. He did my divorce for a flat fee, which was totally doable, and kept me informed the whole time. He was professional and insightful in all of the documents he looked at and drafted to make sure I was completely taken care of as his client. I would 100% recommend Nick for anything. And I will continue to use him if any other situation come up that require a lawyer.

  • I currently enjoy being the custodial parent and seeing my boy's most of the time, which is not a easy thing for a dad to pull off in Utah... Thanks Wade.
    After fighting a custody case on and off for 3 year's Wade Taylor was not my first attorney, he was my third. I had the chance to watch lots of attorney's in action but truly felt Wade was the best money could buy. But that's the astounding part, after receiving his last bill I did the math and determined he had actually cost me less then any other attorney!?!? I currently enjoy being the custodial parent and seeing my boy's most of the time, which is not a easy thing for a dad to pull off in Utah... Thanks Wade.

  • Wade Taylor was completely honest about what my rights were from the very beginning and explained the entire process step by step.
    Wade Taylor was completely honest about what my rights were from the very beginning and explained the entire process step by step. The other attorney for the other half, dragged her feet with EVERYTHING and played games the entire time. Mr. Taylor fully supported me walking out of mediation after HOURS of being there and finding out the other attorney was completely unprepared. The other attorney tried to blame Mr. Taylor for her not being prepared, but Mr. Taylor was able to prove he sent her the information MONTHS before mediation. Mr. Taylor also had another extremely knowledgeable and experienced attorney, Elenia Cozean at mediation with us. It was so reassuring to know just how supported I was not only by Mr. Wade, but also by the other attorneys in his office. I have already recommended Mr. Wade to several people in search of a great attorney and I will continue to do so!

  • I would HIGHLY recommend her and I would hate to up against her.
    Elenia M. Cozean took a very stressful situation and made it as simple as possible. I went into the office and she was very friendly and personable. She answered my emails usually within the hour. She got my situation fixed in days that I had been working on for months. She didn't do as much work as we expected, so she reimbursed me a portion of my retainer fee. I would HIGHLY recommend her and I would hate to up against her.

  • He kept me well informed throughout the whole process, and was very good at breaking down the legal jargon into plain English so I could fully understand all of the documents and hearings that we had to go through.
    Nick from Nelson, Taylor & Associates worked with me for almost three years on a change in custody and did phenomenally well! He kept me well informed throughout the whole process, and was very good at breaking down the legal jargon into plain English so I could fully understand all of the documents and hearings that we had to go through. In the end, we had what I believe was an extremely fair and favorable outcome and I would hire Nick again if I had to go back and start from the beginning.

  • I am confident that there is no one who is a better fit to handle my case. I am extremely happy with everything that has happened since I first hired him.
    I'm currently working with Wade Taylor on a custody case. I can say that he is an honest, straightforward, funny, charming and highly experienced Attorney. In 4 months he has been able to accomplish more for me than my previous lawyer of 14 months. I am very happy with the way Wade is handling my case, especially because he asks what you want and doesn't try to dissuade you. Instead, he informs and educates you on the pros and cons of each option. He's very professional and can still manage to make you laugh. He is truly a hidden gem. I am confident that there is no one who is a better fit to handle my case. I am extremely happy with everything that has happened since I first hired him. If you want someone who will listen to you and hear you vent and can still be the bulldog that subtly destroys his opponents this is your guy ! Thanks Wade

  • He went above and beyond to make sure my interest was fairly protected.
    I could not have found a better person to handle my divorce! Nick Gotwald was amazing! If I could give him more stars I would!!! Before hiring Nick I had talked with several other lawyers, but none compared. From the first phone call with Nick it was clear that he was who I needed to hire. Throughout the whole process, he was understanding, incredibly knowledge, and extremely professional in all proceedings. He went above and beyond to make sure my interest was fairly protected. And once the negotiations were complete he still stayed on board as a resource in case I should need him. And his price was beyond fair!!! Hiring Nick was the best decision. I can not thank him enough!

  • She helped me tremendously and I would absolutely use her again in the future.
    Elenia helped me during a very nasty custody battle with my ex-husband. She helped me tremendously and I would absolutely use her again in the future. Her rates are reasonable and she made a horrendous experience much easier than it could have been.

  • As a single mother, he was truly understanding and did everything he could to help me. I will never have another attorney but Wade Taylor.
    Wade Taylor is the best attorney I have ever had the privilege to hire. He has helped me on two separate and unrelated cases and both cases he was on top of everything. He is extremely knowledgeable and genuine. He will not BS you and will tell you exactly what he thinks will happen and plans for things that may not happen. He never over charged me and even tried to help lower costs if he was able to. As a single mother, he was truly understanding and did everything he could to help me. I will never have another attorney but Wade Taylor.

  • I felt like I had more than just an attorney but I had someone who was willing to fight for my daughter and I and it wasn’t just his “job”. It felt like he was invested in my case and that seems like just the kind of person he is. He also helped me underst
    I cannot recommend Nicholas Gottwald as a divorce attorney highly enough. I am sure, the majority of divorced individuals will recall their divorce experiences as horrible or especially difficult, mine not being excluded. That cannot be helped most the time, but I do feel as though Nick made it manageable. Nick was the second attorney I had a consultation with and his professionalism and knowledge on divorce impressed me and stuck with me. I didn’t end up hiring him until a few months after the consultation and he still remembered me and parts of my case. I hired Nick, not only because I felt he was knowledgeable but he is also personable. Going through a divorce is hard and emotional and you will want someone who is understanding and sensitive to that. Nick was incredibly understanding and supportive. I felt like I had more than just an attorney but I had someone who was willing to fight for my daughter and I and it wasn’t just his “job”. It felt like he was invested in my case and that seems like just the kind of person he is. He also helped me understand what was reasonable and in turn what was unrealistic. Nick was honest and forthcoming with his thoughts and his advice and I will be forever grateful for him and his help.
