Chestnut Cambronne has been a presence in the Minnesota family law bar for over forty years. The Family Law Practice Group has vast experience in all areas of family law, including marriage dissolution, child custody, paternity, child support, post-decree issues, antenuptial agreements, and step- and second-parent adoptions. The group is derived of an exceptional team of staff and attorneys who can assist in many areas impacted by family law matters. The firm has handled family cases in all Twin Cities metro area counties and throughout Minnesota.

Chestnut Cambronne’s family law attorneys have handled thousands of cases involving complex issues of property division and spousal maintenance, sometimes litigating them to the Minnesota Supreme Court. The firm was instrumental in the landmark decision of Nardini v. Nardini, which continues to be the law today in the areas of determining spousal maintenance for a non-working spouse in a long-term marriage and for valuing and dividing a closely-held family business.

The firm’s attorneys work diligently to engage in productive settlement negotiations and Alternative Dispute Resolution (such as mediation, Early Neutral Evaluation, Parenting Consulting, and Parenting Time Expediting) to resolve matters without having a judge decide them. When necessary, the firm’s attorneys are able to deploy their experience and skills for the benefit of their clients in the courtroom as well.
