He works diligently to give his clients the advantage at every stage of litigation, including motions, conferences, and hearings.

The blend of Mr. Nothdurft’ s family law and criminal law practice gives him a unique ability to navigate complex cases that involve family violence, which is when an individual is accused of committing a criminal offense against a family member. For that reason, Mr. Nothdurft is often retained in connection with an individual’s domestic relations case and their criminal case. He is able to provide continuity and consistency in his representation of clients in such matters in a way that most other practitioners simply cannot accommodate.

Mr. Nothdurft has successfully counseled and represented countless clients in both types of cases.
