Jacksonville Family Law & Estate Planning Lawyer

Every family crosses paths with the legal system at least once. Some families should have more help from the legal system than they do. Some families are tired of the sight of a courtroom.

Whatever your family's attitude toward the law and experience with the legal system, my law firm aims to help. The Law Office of Douglas A. Oberdorfer, P.A., serves its clients' legal needs from start to finish — from adoption to estate planning and probate administration.

From an office in Jacksonville, Florida, I serve clients throughout the state. Contact my office to make an appointment.

A Law Firm for Troubled or Happy Occasions

My law practice focuses on family law and divorce, estate planning and probate, and criminal defense. My goal is to serve as your family's law firm for life, whatever your legal needs. If I personally cannot provide the legal help you need, my long-standing connections in the legal community allow me to refer you to another qualified lawyer.

A Former State Prosecutor Who Combines Legal Knowledge With Compassion

Family law disputes, divorce proceedings, the probate process after a loved one's death, and drafting wills and trusts to plan for events after one's death - these can be some of the most emotional legal issues you may face. Clients benefit from both my legal experience and compassion. I aim to help clients make informed decisions during stressful times. An experienced attorney, I help my clients focus on the important issues that must be addressed, setting the emotion aside temporarily in order to make informed and practical decisions.

Before opening my private family law and estate planning practice, I served as an assistant state attorney in Florida for over three years. In that position, I gained hands-on experience with how a criminal prosecutor handles cases. Not only my criminal defense clients benefit from my prosecutorial experience. My civil law clients also benefit from my comfort level in the courtroom and my firm positions at the negotiating table. Read more about my professional background.

I will listen to your concerns and be a strong advocate for you. Having a spouse file for divorce or losing a loved one are issues that are rife with emotion. You need a lawyer who will listen to you and assist you in making smart and educated decisions. My commonsense approach and ability to see the bigger picture has resulted in the successful resolution of many disputes — in family law cases such as divorce, child custody, and spousal support; in estate planning and probate litigation; and in criminal cases.
