Dakota County Divorce Attorney

Providing Professional And Effective Legal Counsel For Minnesota Families

Big changes in your life cause a big splash followed by wakes and then ripples like a stone dropped in the lake. Most family law cases such as divorce or paternity are that kind of change. My law office guides our clients through their family law matters from beginning to end in search of calmer waters.

My name is Deborah Dewalt. I am a Dakota County divorce lawyer who has worked for most of my legal career with families and individuals throughout the Twin Cities and south of the river areas, consistently promoting client resiliency and advocating effectively for positive outcomes for my clients. I welcome, listen and respond to the needs and concerns of my clients.

To do that, my firm focuses on both legal and practical factors to fashion fair and workable solutions in a wide range of family law issues. The options and proposals I create with my clients are often appealing to decision-makers because they are reasonable, balanced and comprehensive, tailored to each client's unique needs and characteristics.

Dewalt Law Office provides high-quality, client-centered legal representation in a professional and friendly atmosphere.

Experienced Representation With Personal Client Service

I have practiced law since 1983 and have focused on family law since 1985. My experience includes virtually all of the legal roles in family cases: litigator, negotiator, guardian ad litem, collaborative lawyer, appellate lawyer, arbitrator, mediator, early neutral evaluator and parenting consultant. Few attorneys in the Twin Cities have this depth and breadth of experience and interest.

My training includes many Continuing Legal Education courses, participation in professional family law groups, and writing or lecturing on topics of interest to me. I am privileged to be a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

I believe that one of my strengths is considering each client and each case on an individual basis and giving my clients my personal attention. I don't rely on standard solutions, because my observation is that few families are "standard" in all respects. Instead, you and I will work together to develop a plan for your case that addresses your concerns and needs within a process appropriate for your case. Then I will move ahead to advocating for the legal and practical outcomes that you have set as goals for the case.
